Karen Jo: I think it is fabulous because I finished my income taxes, even with your help. Why were you sitting on my tax papers?
You put some of your dumb papers on my cushion on the table and I wanted to watch the birds, so I sat on the papers you were working on until you moved the ones off my cushion. Then I got on my cushion and started talking to the birds.
Karen Jo: You make such an interesting little sound when you watch the birds. You don't chitter, you go keck-keck.
The food around here has been pretty boring. Mom keeps eating chicken that she put herbs all over. I don't much like it.
Karen Jo: I try to give you pieces of the inside where the herbs aren't, but you still don't want it. Don't worry, it's almost steak time again.
Yay! I've been playing with my toys while Mom isn't watching again. It's fun to play by myself. I have found out that if I sit by the kitchen sink and meow pitifully enough, Mom will pick me up and put me on the sink and give me a drink from the faucet.
Karen Jo: I should make you jump every time. You need the exercise. That pitiful meow gets to me, though, and I pick you up.
Mom isn't picking at my fur as much.
Karen Jo: I have gotten out most of the mats. You still have some around your armpit, though.
Oooh, that's a tender spot. I really don't like you pulling my fur there.
Karen Jo: I know and I'm sorry, but it has to be done. You did one the hard way yesterday.
I was up on the couch, resting my head on Mom's thigh and getting petted when she started in on the fur pulling. I jumped down.
Karen Jo: I was still holding onto the mat and it pulled out when you jumped. I have decided not to do any more mat picking during our bedtime petting session. You don't like it and it is our special time.
Thank goodness for that.
Karen Jo: I was out and about quite a bit today, doing errands and I saw lots of bugs. I hope you are going to be a better bug hunter this year.
I am choosy about which bugs I hunt.
Karen Jo: I have noticed. You just watch flies, but you hunt and eat moths.
Moths taste better.
