Karen Jo: It almost feels like winter again. It actually snowed yesterday. It was too warm (in the 40s) for it to stick, but it came down. Herman seems to like the grain free food OK, but Emma doesn't even want to taste the weight control food. I don't know what she is going to do when the Purina One runs out.
Emma: I like to scratch both vertically and horizontally. I mostly like to scratch on the couch in the living room, but I also scratch on the easy chair in the living room and the couch in my room. Herman's platform has material on it almost like the material on the couch, but I won't scratch on it. Mom keeps trying to get me to scratch where she wants me to, but I won't do it. My new scratcher has the same material on it around the edges and the base, but I won't scratch on it, either.
Karen Jo: I will keep on trying. Luckily, you have small claws and they don't seem to be doing much damage. All the furniture is quite old, so I don't really care all that much.
I actually played with Da Bird for a little bit tonight. I still don't see what makes Emma so crazy about it, but it is kind of fun to bat around.
Emma: I played with it for a long time tonight. It's my very favorite toy. I think Mom may have to get a new bird for it soon. I have pulled out all but two of the feathers and those two are looking pretty scraggly.
Karen Jo: I will get a new bird for Da Bird the next time I am at the pet supply store, or when the feathers finally give out. I wouldn't want you to miss out on play time with your favorite toy. You kitties have been coming to bed kind of late the last few nights.
You have been going to bed earlier. I came in at my usual time and you were already asleep, so I missed out on my petting time.
Karen Jo: Sorry about that. I had a lot of work to do yesterday and I got so tired that I needed to go to bed.
Emma: You made me miss out of Femme Friday. Pout.
Karen Jo: If it's all right with Herman, I can let you have Sunday.
I don't mind.
