Sunday with Emma

Emma:  I get the blog to myself today because Mom has been really bad about posting on Femme Friday.  For some reason, Mom finds this photo really amusing.  I don't know why.  I just found myself a comfy nap spot.  Herman and I are getting along really well now.  We haven't had any kind of spat in a couple of weeks now.  We even sleep touching each other in bed with Mom.  That's so we can each get a hand to pet us before Mom goes to sleep.  After Mom gets really sleepy and stops petting us, we just stay where we are and we sleep, too.  I have been chasing Herman down the hall a little bit more.  It's fun.  I like to lie in my favorite chair and wait for him to go by.  Then I swat at him and he swats back. We only manage to swat each others' paws, but that's what makes it fun.  Herman didn't want to play tonight at all, but I did.  I played with Da Bird until Herman came into the living room to see what Mom and I were doing.  Then Mom tried to get him to play with Da Bird, but he just ignored it.  Then Mom tried to get him to play with his wand mousie, but he ignored that, too.  I didn't ignore it.  I pounced it right in front of him, but he didn't mind.  He just wanted some petting from Mom.  I played with Da Bird for a little while longer after that, then got tired of the game.

Karen Jo:  I am really beginning to think that extended play is just something that FeLV kitties don't do.  Herman only plays for two or three minutes at a time and Emma stops after five or six minutes.  Changing toys doesn't make any difference.

Emma:  I wish Mom would go back to the old food.  My favorites are both gone.  I loved the Purina Kitten Chow and the Fancy Feast Filet Mignon.  Now all the dry food I eat is the Purina One.  Thank goodness for Stinky Goodness and Medley.

Karen Jo:  Why won't you try the Now weight control food?

Emma:  I ate all the Filet Mignon off the top of it, but I am just not interested in it.  I nibble at the Now kitten food a little.

Karen Jo:  I will keep an eye on your weight.  If you start to lose, I will consider getting you some Filet Mignon and put it up on the window sill for you, where Herman won't get at it.

Emma:  I am trying out being a lap kitty again.  I was well on my way to turning into a lap kitty when Mom started putting me in her lap to put those icky drops in my ears.  That put me off her lap for quite a while.  A few days ago, she was sitting in her rocking chair and I jumped up in her lap and stayed that as long as she let me, which wasn't very long.

Karen Jo:  I am sorry, but I had to go to the litter box room.  I put it off as long as I could, but I was ready to get up to go when you jumped in my lap.

Emma: Humans, hmmpf!  Always disturbing us kitties just when we get really comfortable.

Emma, that's a pretty good compromise...if you lose some weight, you'll get some of the Filet Mignon you like! Go chase Herman some more!!

We're happy you two are getting along so well.

Emma, what in the world are you looking at?...we can't quite tell. Or are you going for a really big stretch.

We just heard about Herman so we wanted to stop in and give out some purrs and head butts.

Hmmm, filet mignon? Sounds yummy.

You look like you are daydreaming!

Emma, that is a really cute picture of you. You look especially comfy to us.

I am glad you two like each other! We don't do extended play here much either--so it could be that you are an adult. Ichiro could play forever sometimes though...

I'd put the bitey on the mom if she changed our fud. She tried to sneak sum good stuff (so she says) in our fud bowls - we ate around it. MOL

That sleepin with the Bein at night is a lot like here. We each get some stritchin, an then settle down for the night. Usually, annyway. Sometimes Ayla runs around a lot at night.
