Wacky Wednesday

 Spyro really loves this turbo-track thing.  I usually ignore it, as I do most of my toys most of the time.  I lie around and watch Spyro play.  It is beginning to rub off on me a little, though.  Today I attacked my purple kicker, which I haven't done in ages.  Spyro, the little piggy, is trying to eat all the canned food.  I will let him eat our of the dish I am eating out of at the same time, but if he gets pushy, or I really want the food, I will push him out of the way.  I never smack him upside the head the way I used to do with Emma, though.  I like Spyro a whole lot more than I ever liked Emma.

Karen Jo:  I am thrilled that you and Spyro are getting along so well.  I was beginning to worry that you weren't getting enough to eat, until I saw you gently push Spyro's sharp little nose right out of the food dish.  I had to put Spyro's dry food where you couldn't get to it, but he could, but I also (rarely) see him eating your dry food.  He eats a third of his own, as well.  I won't worry about him getting too fat, as he is extremely active.

 Spyro:  Here I am, out of focus again.

Karen Jo:  I tried the Sport setting, but it isn't any better.  I will just go back to using Auto and see if I can get an in-focus picture of your face for your Tabby Club badge. I have applied for you to join, but I can't get a good picture of you.
Spyro:  I am a very helpful kitty.  Here I am helping Mom make up the bed.  I help her like this every morning.  I also help with the laundry.  I sleep in the laundry basket to get my fur on everything.  When Mom tries to fold the laundry, I jump right in the basket and snatch the socks out of her hand when she picks up the wrong one.

Karen Jo:  I am grateful for all your help.  It gets my day off to an amusing start.

Spyro:  There is a door that is always closed in this house.  Mom goes in there sometimes, but always shuts the door behind her and won't let me in.  I want in there so much!  I sit outside the door and meow to be let in, but Mom always says that I can't go in there.  I dig my paw under the door and try to open it, but it never works.

Karen Jo:  That is the door to my parents' bedroom.  It is an awful mess in there, as I have been tossing whatever I don't have room for, but am not ready to throw away yet in there.  Emma got in there once and knocked all sort of stuff (like pins) on the floor that might be dangerous to kitties before I got her out again.  Some day I am going to clean it up and turn it into my computer room.  I keep saying that, but I really do think that the day is coming.  I really am starting to be a better housekeeper.

Spyro and I have a new game:  kitty rasslin'.  We both love it.

Spyro:  I love it because I always win.

You win?  You are always the one who runs away.

Spyro:  I win because I am always the one on top.

I let you be on top because it gives me better leverage to bunny-kick you.

Karen Jo:  I think you both win.  I love watching you have so much fun with each other.  I am really glad that Spyro is sometimes the one who starts it.  They only started rasslin' a few days ago and it was always Herman lying in wait to pounce on Spyro that started it. Today I watched them and Spryo ran away, then came right back and pounced on Herman from the rear to start it all over again.  I tried to get a picture, but they broke and pretended that nothing was going on as soon as they saw the camera.

Spyro:  I love it here. There is always something to do.  Not all the birds have left because Mom feeds them every once in a while.  Mom picks up all the toys every day and puts out new ones.  If I decide there aren't enough toys out, I knock over the orange toy bucket and empty it out.

Karen Jo:  I decided that it was silly to let the bird seed I have on hand to go to waste, so I am giving it to the birds until I run out.  When I put out seed, I put out water, too.  We got a lot of rain in the last few days, so the bear danger has diminished somewhat.

Why is Spyro getting more blog space than I am?   It's my blog.

Karen Jo:  Spyro does more than you do, Mr. Lazypants.  You spend most of your time lying around.  Your vet said I should use wand toys to get you more exercise, but you just ignore them.  Maybe I'll try one of those Neko-flies.  I have to go to the pet store to get Spyro some more dry food tomorrow anyway.

Spyro has really added some liveliness to your household! Herman, I bet it takes some effort to keep up with him... when you choose to try.

Wow, a Forbidden Room! We used to have one of those, until we moved. Now we get to go everywhere except Mom's bedroom. (For some reason, she says she needs to have one place that's fur-free.)
