Fabulous Friday

I just told Mom that I wanted a treat by scratching on my Alpine Scratcher.  I got one, too.  Mom and I think today is fabulous for different reasons.  I think it is fabulous because the weather warmed up and melted all the snow and it even got warm enough for window whiffing.  We had lots of birds at the feeder and I talked to them.

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.

Do you get to hunt stinkbugs, Herman? When we bat them, they release a horrible stink. We just attack them and set their stink off, just so the humans can smell it! Teehee. We wouldn't dare bite those stinky things with our mouths!

Anyways... Happy Easter!

Herman, I am with you - flies are nasty! I prefer moths and crickets. Unfortunately, my human saw the first cricket of the season before I did, and she caught it and put it outside.

Tee-hee, Herman, I meow pitifully to haf the water turned on, too! You really haf your hooman wrapped around your paw!

Gattina said...

Yes, humans and cat food ! they don't understand !
Wish you both a Happy Easter !

Brian said...

Oh Herman, you are so right, moths are the best! Happy Hoppy Easter to you and your Mom!

Fuzzy Tales said...

Herman, we're with you on the moths! Our human wishes we'd eat spiders, but we're not interested. We'll kill flies, but we don't eat them. Gross.

A very happy Easter to you and Karen Jo!

I really think that having to jump up to get your own drink is a bit excessive, BOL!

My people did their taxes and said lots of HBO words when they were done.

Herman, TBT hadda thought. We know, odd an usually doesnt make sense. But he was saying that there are small hair trimmers fer Bein men and that might be a good option fer yer mats. They can take out just a small area wifout balding ya.

Word on the street says that professional cat groomers use stuff just like those. Might be worth a try...

Herman - you are a very good kitty - love seeing your conversations with your mom. Hope you are both having a great Easter weekend! - Debbt

Moths *do* taste better than flies, don't they Herman? We are glad to hear almost all those mats are gone; we are hoping you can get that last one by your armpit without too much trouble...

Happy Easter to you and Mom Karen Jo!


Ellen Whyte said...

Poor Herman, those mats sounds terrible. We'd be sneaky and cut them out but then you'd look a bit ragged! We'd like to see you talk to the birds. Do they talk back?

We're doing out taxes too. Big YECH!

You finished your taxes?? I'm a smidge envious.. (I'm avoiding mine at the moment by surfing blogs)

We find Junebugs kinda tasty, but we has to wait a bit for those.
