Karen Jo: Emma wasn't trying to butt in on your petting time. I had been petting you for a long time and thought you were asleep. She just jumped up to see if she could get some attention, too. You have been really hogging bedtime lately. I just reached over and started petting her and you smacked both of us with your paw. Poor Emma just looked confused. It was morning and that is usually her time.
Night time, morning, I don't care. If I am there first I want all the attention.
Karen Jo: And you have been getting the lion's share of it. To clue in our friends, I haven't been feeling well lately and have been spending a lot of time in bed. Herman has been right there with me, wanted to be petted and keeping me company. Poor Emma hasn't been getting much attention at all. I have managed to find some time for her when Herman isn't around.
Enough of that. Our litter boxes need changing.
Karen Jo: I know. I tried to buy litter today, but all I could get was one box and I need two boxes for one litter box. I will try again on Monday. There was enough Deserts' Sand, but you don't really like that.
I don't like that at all. Oh, well, I hope some more Swheat Scoop shows up soon.
Karen Jo: I think I am going to have to start buying it one box at a time whenever I can find it.
Emma: I want some more play time.
Karen Jo: I have tried to play with you more, but you usually don't want to play when I want to play.
Emma: So find out when I want to play and do more of it.
Karen Jo: I know that you like to play at night, but I have been so tired that I haven't been up to playing with you when I used to.
Emma: So get over it and play with me.
At least the food is getting better. Mom cooked chicken in the oven and I sat by the oven waiting and waiting for it to get done. At last it was ready and Mom gave me a bite. She made something good out of it with cheese and I got some cheese, too. Tonight was steak night and Mom gave me some sour cream.
Karen Jo: I would have given you some steak, too, but you never asked for any.
I was too full of sour cream.
Emma: I don't like that stuff. My duck and pea bowl is almost empty and you aren't filling it up.
Karen Jo: Every month I dump all of your dry food, wash the bowls and start over. You will get all brand new dry food in the morning.
Emma: I can hardly wait.
I can wait. I tried some more of that duck and pea yesterday and barfed it again. I think I will stick to my weight control formula.
Karen Jo: I think that's a good idea. I took you to be weighed Wednesday and you have lost 0.6 pounds. I hope some of it was fat and not just fur.
I do, too. I hope I didn't lose that much fur.
Emma: I think you look great without your fur, except for your swag belly.
You little twerp! Wait till I get my paws on you!
Karen Jo: Now, now, Herman. Your belly is a bit more obvious now.
Humpf! At least I still get most of the petting around here. That proves I am still the primo cat in this house.
