Karen Jo: We will have to find a day for Emma.
She can have Wednesdays. Here I am chilling out on my ham-mick, which is one place that Emma hasn't tried to take over yet.
Karen Jo: She hasn't been up on top of your platform yet, either.
It's probably just a matter of time. I want everyone to know that I am feeling great. Emma and I are starting to play together. I chase her all over. One fun game is that she runs around the living room on the furniture and I chase after her on the floor. When she runs out of furniture we have a little boxing match, then she turns around and runs the other way. I have gotten into pounce position watching her a few times, but I haven't pounced her yet. As for her being faster than I am, hah! I showed her tonight that I can catch her whenever I want. I didn't even touch her. I just caught up with her and showed her how fast I can be.
Karen Jo: You showed her who gets first dibs on the Medley, too.
That's right. I have started guarding my Medley dish. At lunch time Mom put down my Medley right in front of me and I started eating it. Emma watched. Then Mom put down some really good Stinky Goodness. I leaned over and started eating that, without moving from in front of my Medley dish. Emma just sat there and cried.
Karen Jo: I gave her a dish of Stinky Goodness in her room, as usual. It took her a little longer than I expected to catch on to what I was doing. She didn't realize that food was being served in her room until she heard me filling up her Kitten Chow.
Tonight I was nicer. I just ate my Medley and let Emma eat the Stinky Goodness. Mom has showed me that I can eat Emma's Stinky Goodness, if she eats all of mine and I want hers. Mom says that the ravens are mad at us. Mom gives them any left over Stinky Goodness. There isn't much left over any more, just a few crumbs sometimes. Mom hardly ever gives me treats any more. She doesn't give me my cheese snack any more, either. I haven't been bugging her about it. Chasing Emma is lots more fun than asking for treats.
Karen Jo: I am hoping that between not getting many treats and getting lots more exercise, you will lose the weight you need to without my actually having to put you on a diet.
