Fresh Air Sunday
Karen Jo: Sorry it's such a long shot. This is my third attempt to take this picture today. Every time Emma saw me coming toward her, she jumped down. I would back away from her and she would jump back up. I finally ended up taking the picture from across the room. She was absolutely fascinated by a bird having a really good time in the bird bath, which I had just filled. I opened windows in the kitchen, living room and my bedroom, which gives a nice breeze through the house. I closed them when I went to work because the weather had been so cold lately, I was afraid it would get too cold by the time I got home. After I got to work, I realized that I hadn't turned the heat back up, but I needn't have worried. The house was 80 degrees inside when I got home. We have an open window in my bedroom and the back door open, with the screen door securely latched. I will leave them open until it gets too cold. It's down to 60 outside, so I will have to close up before I go to bed.
We were good kitties today, with no spats, though Emma almost pounced me tonight.
Emma: I was up on the couch and ran to my favorite chair when I saw Herman relaxing near it. I came within and inch of pouncing right on his head, but thought better of it at the last minute and put on the brakes.
Karen Jo: I could tell that if Emma had pounced that it was going to be a play pounce. Herman barely reacted.
I was too hot to react much. 80 degrees is way to hot for me to feel up to doing much at all. Emma was still running around, but her coat isn't nearly as thick as mine. I was really glad when Mom got home and left the back door open and opened her window to get a little breeze going. I will be really glad when we get to have open windows while Mom is at work, so it doesn't get so hot in here.
Karen Jo: That should be soon, if the weather stays warm. I just worry that if I leave the windows open and the temperature really drops, you will be two very cold kitties when I get home.
I haven't gotten cold since my fur grew back in after I had my chest shaved last year. Emma might feel it, though.
Emma: I could always snuggle up to you to keep warm. I'm not sure I'm brave enough to do that, though, if Mom weren't around. It seems we can only snuggle up next to each other when we are also snuggled up next to Mom.
Karen Jo: Give it time. I think the two of you are eventually going to be very affectionate toward each other.
