Herman Goes Nekkid!
Karen Jo: I am glad that you are enjoying your cooler lion cut, Herman. I love it when you sleep next to me at night, but I really understand why you are doing it so seldom now. It's been in the 90s everyday for a couple of weeks now. I have been a really bad blogger and I apologize, but the heat got me down. I will just have to make myself do it. It's not that I don't enjoy it once I get started, it just seems like too much work in the heat. I know that 90 isn't so hot for a lot of you, but it used to be rare up here in the mountains and I'm not used to it.
Karen Jo: It amazes me how small an opening you need to slip out. Luckily, you never go anywhere. Once you are out, you just stop and look around and it's really easy to get you back in. Once I just told you to get your furry little butt back inside and you obeyed. I am either going to have to figure out how to get the trash cans out without your getting out, too, or shut the kitchen door to the living room before I open the screen door.
Karen Jo: When I didn't see you in my room, I went back to your room and you let out a "Merp!" and ran back into your room and into your hidey-hole under the corner table. Later I came and got you and put you down a few feet away from Spyro (Herman was nowhere to be seen at the time). You hissed at him, so I took you back to your room
Oja: I can't help it. Those big kitties are scary. Mom left something interesting in my room. I have been moving it around.
Karen Jo: It's a silver vine-stuffed fish that I got from Nip and Bones. Herman and Spyro weren't that interested in it, so I brought it to you. It's the first toy that I have found moved from where I put it on the floor. I think you like it and I hope that you are playing with it and not just kicking it with your feet as you move around the room. I think I will switch it around with some other toys and see if you will play with them, too.
Karen Jo: I have solved the problem with getting so many claw-pricks when I visit Oja. I can't believe it took me so long to figure it out. All I have to do is put on a sweat-shirt. Oja occasionally gets a paw down the neck of the sweat-shirt and I get pricked, but it doesn't happen often. We spent the longest time together ever tonight. I was with her for over half and hour. She has settled down some, which is really nice. She used to be all over my face all the time and it would get rather unpleasant. First she would rub my face with hers, cheek to cheek, which was rather nice. Then she would turn around and we would be cheek to cheek the other way, which wasn't so nice, especially when she whapped my face with her tail. That short, curly tail is really strong. I would get fur up my nose and in my mouth and kitty drool all over my face. Oja drools, usually out of the left side of her mouth. Ten to fifteen minutes of that was all I could take. Tonight we did the face to face and butt to face bit for a little while, then she moved down to my chest and just looked up at me and let me pet her. After a bit, she moved down to my lap and just enjoyed the petting for a long time. I pet her until she decided that she wanted back up on the bookshelf beside the window. It's cooler up there and it's where she spends the night.
Oja: I want more sessions like tonight's. I really liked it.
