Mom Got Busy Again

I'm just taking it easy on the carpet.  Friday things got weird again.  I got Mom up for breakfast in broad daylight, but it wasn't time for her to get up for good yet.  We were relaxing in bed and I was getting petted when that phone thing went off again.  This time they told her not to come to work.  She got up at her regular time anyway.

Karen Jo:  I was all prepared to get up at my usual time and my inner clock wouldn't let me get back to sleep.  I had a lot to do anyway.

Not much of it was good.  She went and got me more medicine and made the dreaded vet appointment for my wellness exam.  Then she went shopping for that stuff to spray on my butt.  She even brought home a kitty torture bag.

Karen Jo:  You know that I have to get you cleaned up.  Luckily you didn't fight me that much and I didn't have to put you in the grooming bag.  I got the worst of the klingons off, but there is still more to do.

I am not looking forward to that. At least the chicken is good.  I helped Mom eat some for lunch on Saturday.  Friday she ate pizza and wouldn't share.

Karen Jo:  I offered you some cheese from the pizza, but you wouldn't eat it.

I wanted some of the meat.

Karen Jo:  I didn't think pepperoni or Italian sausage would be good for you.

Mom talked for a long time on the phone thing last night.  I tried to get her attention by playing with my Woolly Bully, but she didn't come play with me.

Karen Jo:  Your foster Mom called about a leukemia kitty who needs a home.  I don't know anything about her yet, but the shelter who has her now might contact me.  I also arranged for a ride to the vet for your wellness exam, as we are having another cold front moving through and it is going to be too cold for you to go in your stroller.  You didn't really play with your Woolly Bully long enough for me to get up and join you.  You stopped before I could even get off the couch.

Are you considering getting me a sister again?

Karen Jo:  It is a possibility. We will see what happens this time.

"Kitty torture bag"?!?! I hope that is not as awful as it sounds. Or if it is, that your human does not have to resort to it!

A forever sister or just a foster?
"Kitty torture bag" sounds ominous.

I like the bit where you helped your mom with her chicken dinner. Now that I am better I can't wait to do that!

Wow, Herman that would be exciting for you to have a nice sister. You are such a lucky dude to have such a great Mom. She gives you chicken. What a deal. Can't wait to hear all about the new kitty. Take care and have a great Sunday

Herman, we can't wait to see what happens with that foster kitty. Having a sister might be fun...then you would have someone to play with and you wouldn't hafta wait for your mom to play.

We are pleased you got chickhern this week Herman. Wow you might get a sisfur to play with - it would be lovely for you when your mom is out at work.
May we ask what a torture bag is - oh no - on reflection we think we'd rather not know.

That kitty torture bag sounds sort of SCARY, Herman. Please let us know how your wellness exam goes, and keep us posted about that possible sisfur, too!

I think that a torture bag would scare me even more than whatever else she was doing.

Oh Herman
A sister?
That would be really nice, don't you think?

A sister can be fun but they can also be a pain in the neck

Hi Herman! That chicken sounded very good! You and your Mom always has good stuff to eat at your house, it gives us the munchies when we read your blog at night! Good purrs to you for your wellness exam.
