last time she did this to me?
Karen Jo: I don't think you look quite as miffed. At least you held still so you weren't all blurry, like last time.
It only took you about elebenty tries to get the picture. I kept tossing the hat off. It's times like this I really miss Emma. It was her turn to wear the hat.
Karen Jo: I really miss Emma, too. February would have been her second birthday and March 1st would have been her first Gotcha Day anniversary. I am still debating on whether to send her dates to the Cat Blogosphere calendar. This year the pain was still too raw to think about celebrating her birthday or gotcha day. I did finally get around to telling the people at the shelter she came from that I had room for another leukemia kitty.
Don't cry, Mom. This is supposed to be a happy day.
Karen Jo: Sorry, Herman, I can't help it. If you want to see a bad picture of Emma in the St. Patrick's Day hat, you can find it here.
Now that Mom has stopped crying, maybe we can get on with the good stuff. Mom fills up the bird feeder and suet feeder and bird bath every day and the Bird Channel on Cat TV is great. I even have different noises I make for different birds. I meep at the little birds and make a kack sound at the ravens.
Karen Jo: I find it fascinating that you differentiate between the birds. I am glad that you only make your raven sound infrequently. The first time I heard it, I thought you were choking.
I saw a fly in the kitchen window yesterday. Another sign of Spring. Are you sure it's going to snow tomorrow?
Karen Jo: No, I am not sure. It's nearly up to 60 today, but it is very windy, which could very well mean that a storm is on the way.
Or it could just be our normal March winds. I have been around long enough to know that high winds are normal this time of year.
Karen Jo: That's right. You are going to be five in June. And in November, you will have lived with me for three years. That means that you will have lived with me longer than the early, not-so-good part of your life.
I really appreciate it, too. Now, when do I get some more food? I ate up that tiny lunch you gave me.
Karen Jo: Not until ten tonight. You have your dry food to carry you through.
I have been eating up most of that since you started measuring it. Aren't you supposed to be cooking corned beef or something right now?
Karen Jo: That's right. I need to go start dinner. Don't worry, I'll give you some corned beef.
I hope it doesn't taste too much like cabbage.
