 Mom couldn't resist taking this photo of the two of us relaxing more or less together.  You can just see my nose poking up out of the laundry basket.  I am really glad that Spyro showed me how to get up here.  The laundry basket is amazingly comfy.

Spyro:  I like hanging out on top of the fridge.  I can see everything from up here and it's a little cooler.
Oja:  My pictures are always a bit dark.  You can just see me by the sunshine on my fur.  I got over my diarrhea.  It must have been the Tiki Cat.  It was probably just too rich for me.  I am even burying my poop sometimes now.  I feel much better.

Karen Jo:  Your pictures are a bit dark because you are in the darkest room in the house.  When you are ready, I will let you out to explore the rest of the house.

Oja:  I don't want out there yet.  There are scary giant kitties out there!

I finally got a peek at Oja.  Mom left the door open and Oja came halfway out.  I started walking slowly toward her and she growled and hissed at me.  I meowed softly to let her know that I meant no harm, but she didn't believe me.

Karen Jo:  You are over twice her size, Herman, and your long fur makes you look even bigger.  Oja isn't any bigger than Emma was; in fact she weighs a little bit less.  Maybe you'll look less scary after your shaving.

What shaving?  You aren't taking me to the groomer again are you?

Karen Jo:  Yes I am.  Your mats have gotten much worse in the last few days.  It got up to 90 yesterday and I am thinking that you will be more comfortable with a full lion cut.

Oh, man!  You may be right about it being cooler without all this fur, though.

Spyro:  I have decided on which toy is the coolest ever.  There is this white ball that had three feathers sticking up out of it and is makes a soft rattle sound when I bat it around.  I have chewed off the feathers until there is just a stump big enough for me to pick it up by and carry it around in my mouth.  Mom had the nerve to pick it up and put it away the other day.  I dumped out the toy basket and rooted around until I found it again.  Now Mom leaves it out all the time.

Herman, we want pics of your lion cut! Heh heh. Actually, we bet you *will* feel a lot better afterward.

Spyro, way to go, teaching Herman there are extra-comfy spots to hang out, like the laundry basket.

Oja, we hope you'll soon feel secure to come out and meet your "brothers," without fear!

Mom Paula is covering our eyes so we don't see you up there. She doesn't want us to get any ideas.

Not to worry Herman, you will make a very handsome lion! Howdy Spyro, howdy Oja!

Gemini and Ichiro said...

That's an excellent place to go. I think you should have a tutorial!

Mats are the pits! That lion cut sounds a lot nicer than mats!
You're all adorable, has anyone mentioned that??

Herman, it is awfully hot where you are. Maybe a lion cut is a good idea.

The Island Cats said...

Haha! We think Spyro is being a little bit of a bad influence on you, Herman!

Angel Simba said...

We hope we get to see some pictures of the Lion Cut.

Oja, we are glad you are feeling better.

Hi there Spyro and Oja, we sure are glad to meet you. Oja, we understand you being scared of other kitties. We have one like that living here. Herman, we think you will look so handsome with a lion cut. Spyro, you are so smart learning how to get on top of the fridge. Hope all of you have a super Sunday.

I had problems with TikiCat too. In fact I got so sick I stopped eating and everything. I had to go to the Vet who misdiagnosed me with IBD. I don't have IBD I just had a very very upset stomach. Mom should know not to try and change my food. Once she got me back on what I liked I've been fine.

Wow, there sure is a lot going on at your house, friends! Spyro, that sure is a great spot you've found yourself up on that fridge, and Herman, that basket looks very comfy indeed!

Oja, even though your picture is a bit dark, we can see you are a beautiful kitteh. Don't worry about Herman and Spyro ... they are real nice mancats. :)

Herman, we think you're going to look very handsome in your lion cut! And it will be much, much cooler. :)

How nice you are sharing the same room, if not the same perch. Pretty soon it will be the 3 of you sharing the same room.

Thank you for your kind words on the loss of our Cotton.
