Karen Jo: Herman gave me quite a Christmas present. I got back much later than I expected on Christmas Day and was too tired to blog. I sat in my rocking chair to watch TV and Herman actually got on my lap for a few minutes. He hasn't done it again, but he does get up beside me on the couch when I read and puts his head on my leg. I guess I don't expect him to ever become a lap kitty, but he is very affectionate. When I go to bed he is there almost immediately and stays most of the night, just getting up to eat and use the litter box.
I like being next to you at night. You give me such good chest scritches and belly rubs. It's been kind of boring around here. There aren't many birdies to watch and Mom hasn't been doing much.
Karen Jo: I am getting better about doing stuff. You are very particular about when you will play with me. You haven't responded to me much at all. There are fewer birdies around than there were last winter. It is colder with more snow than last year, so maybe more of them went farther south this year. I haven't found the bird feeder empty in a very long time. I only fill it up now if it is more than half empty, which takes a couple of days.
I only play with you when I feel like it. I play by myself sometimes. Most of the time I would just rather be near you and get attention. I am letting you brush me a lot more and I even let you snip out that mat on my leg that you have been trying to get to for weeks.
Karen Jo: Yes, you were really stubborn about letting me get that mat off your leg. I enjoy brushing you, especially when you start purring while I am doing it. Hopefully, now you will let me brush you enough so you won't get any more mats.
Don't count on the mats staying away. My fur mats easily and it's growing back now and getting nice and long. It's a good thing, as we are having another snow storm tonight.
Karen Jo: It's supposed to get pretty cold tonight and the snow is supposed to get about three inches deep on top of what we already have.
I am snuggling close tonight.
