Mancat Monday

Mom didn't take a picture of me today, so here's a blast from the past.  Mom really has to get her picture taking together.  She forgets a lot.  Luckily, she often has extras, but not today. Emma and I are getting really used to each other.

Karen Jo:  I'll say you are.  When I woke up early this morning to go to the litter box room, both of you were in bed with me.  Your back paws were almost touching.  I wish I had had my camera handy.

That was Emma's idea.  She got in bed with me.  I was just where I was when we went to sleep.

Karen Jo:  You are confusing Emma about the food dishes.  Sometimes you let her share and sometimes you don't.

It all depends on how much I like what is in the dish.  If I really want it, I don't want her sharing until I am finished.  Otherwise, she is welcome to share while I am eating.

Karen Jo:  You seem to like to watch her play.

She's fun to watch.  She really goes after Da Bird.  While you are at work, she drags it under the corner table to play with it by herself.

Karen Jo:  It's Mancat Monday, but we are talking about Emma.  What have you been up to lately?

Just my usual.  I eat, sleep, take care of business and play some.  I like to hide and peek out at Emma, like I am going to pounce her when she goes by.  It makes her nervous and she runs by.  Sometimes I chase her.  We both like that.  I like to get my bedtime petting.

Karen Jo:  I have noticed that some of your fur is trying to mat again.  You even have a tiny mat near your elbow.  I am going to have to snip that out.

You will have to be fast.  I hate scissors.

Karen Jo:  You don't seem to mind so much if I pet you a lot first.

You better pet me a whole lot first if you are coming near me with scissors.  I would love the attention.  That reminds me that I love to scratch for a treat while Emma is watching.  She always runs to scratch on the furniture and doesn't get a treat.  That makes me laugh.  That stuff you bought to spray where she scratches to make her stop scratching there doesn't seem to be working.

Karen Jo:  I haven't noticed her avoiding any of the places I have sprayed.  In fact, she seems to find the smell interesting.

Score another one for the kitties.  I think Emma is going to scratch on the furniture forever.

It's great how you have accepted Emma and let her snuggle on the bed with your mom and you Herman.
We're sure you have fun together while your mom is at work.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Herman, it sounds like you're both getting on pretty well, which is great!

Maybe your mom can literally pick Emma up, put her in front of the scratching post and move her paws to show her? And maybe even that won't help! LOL!

Herman, you and Emma really are great pals, that is so wonderful!!!

Katnip Lounge said...

Herman, you and Emma touched paws? Hurrah! We don't like our furs snipped, either, Mommy has to hide the scissors and then be QUICK!


It's really nice having company when your Mom has to go to work, isn't it?
We are so happy you and Emma are becoming such good friends.

We are sorry that we have not commented but we have been without our internet connection straight now for several days before that it was intermittent.WE purrary it has been resolved!! PLEEESSSEEE!!

You know Herman and Emma, I love to read the dialogue between you three. It is interesting and fun and just as it should be. An adult conversation between family members.

We did not have any luck with the no scratch spray, either!

We hope your mom has her camera ready next time you and Emma are sleeping together...we know there will be a next time!

It's nice to hear you are making friends, with the minor exception of the odd food item.

Hi there, we came over to say hello to Emma, we saw she is a new member of the Tuxedo Gang. Welcome Emma...big hello to Herman too. So nice to read that you two are getting along :-)

Hi Herman! We are so glad to hear that you and Emma are getting along so well. It sounds like you are both doing great. We wish you could teach her the scratching thing though - it sounds like it is kind of tough to learn!

Hi Herman,
I came for Tuxedo Tuesday!
I am the new cat at our house. My older sister Penelope, really gives me heck all the time. We share, but she only plays with me once in a while.
But, its getting better

Athena said...

I love reading the conversations here! Your relationship with Emma makes me think of my big brofur Kit. I am glad you are getting along!

Oskar said...

I bet you'll be best of friends in no time!
