I Wanna Treat!

I was giving Mom my "Please give me a treat" face just before she took the photo.  I looked down just as she pushed the button.  I did get my treat, though.

Karen Jo:  I think I am going to have to hold the treat or the treat bag in my hand next to the camera if I really want to get that look.

I have just about finished off my Duck and Pea and there is no sign of any more coming.  Sigh.  At least I still get my Medley and Stinky Goodness three times a day.  Mom got up early to go to the store to get the groceries that she would need for the next few days.  We are supposed to get a big snow storm starting any time now, but it hasn't started yet.

Karen Jo:  If I had known that the storm was going to hold off this long, I wouldn't have gotten up.  When I got up, it looked like it was going to start snowing any minute and there were tiny flakes in the air as I walked to the store.  Then at noon we actually got sunshine for a little while.

It made a big sun puddle on my big green pillow and I made the most of it.

Karen Jo:  It is certainly cold enough for a big snow storm.  The birdbath was frozen solid.  I couldn't get the ice out to put in water, so I just poured some water on top of the ice.  Hopefully, that will melt enough ice to get it out of the birdbath, so I can fill it with water.  The birds are really going after the suet, so I put out a new cake today.

You are doing something funny with your fingers and my fur.

Karen Jo:  You are getting little mats in your chest fur again.  I am trying to work them out with my fingers.  I don't want to try to cut them out because you have a thin fat layer and loose skin right where the mats are.  I am afraid that I might cut or pinch your skin.  At least you are enjoying your brushing again and don't run from me any more.

Most of my fur isn't long enough to catch in the brush, so it feels good.  You can forget that Furminator, though.

Karen Jo:  It's not that bad.  I need it to thin out your chest fur so you get to keep it for the winter.  Remember how cold you got last winter because you had to have your chest shaved for mats?

Boy, do I!  Did you find something good at the store?

Karen Jo:  I found some turkey thighs and a roast beef.  I will cook the turkey thighs, then get rid of the skin and bones and cut it up and freeze it for lunch meat.

Don't you dare put it in the freezer before I get some!

Karen Jo:  Don't worry.  I will save some out for treats for  you.  Tomorrow I will cook the roast beef. Then I will have lots of food to see us through the storm.  I will let you lick up the beef juice after I carve it.

Yay!  I love beef juice.

Turkey and beef, you are certainly prepared for the snow, but we hope it passes by you or at least leaves just a dusting.

Dark turkey meat and beef juice both sound GREAT!

Ellen Whyte said...

Can we come over and hole up with you during the storm? The menu sounds purrfectly scrumptious!

Have you tried toe nail clippers to clip through mats? No sharp edges so no chance of nicking Herman.

Oh sounds like some yummy food is on the horizon Herman. Excellent! We always get the munchies when we visit your blog!
