Zoolatry very much for the new header. I love the old one, but Spyro and Oja deserve a place on the header, too.
I am watching Spyro play and deciding whether or not I want to pounce him. In the end, all I did was bat his tail once. He was too occupied to notice. Mom wouldn't take us out Sunday, but we got to go out for a long time today. Spyro got to go first, but I didn't mind too much.
Karen Jo: As soon as you discovered that we were out you started meowing that you wanted out.
I don't get all spastic like Spyro does. I had a lovely time exploring the front yard and the neighbor's front yard and the back yard.
Karen Jo: I carried you from the neighbor's front yard to our back yard. You were getting a bit to nosy about their carport.
I got to chew on grass and watch ravens fly overhead. I checked out a couple of gopher holes, but didn't find them all that interesting. Mostly I just walked around on the grass and looked all around.
Karen Jo: I thought there was enough going on yesterday. Besides, I had a ton of paperwork to get through.
Spyro: Mom took my out early this evening. It had been cloudy all day and even rained a tiny bit, so it was nice and cool. I still move with my belly low to the ground, but I go much faster now. I chewed on the grass and rolled on the concrete and sniffed the spiderwebs. Mom let me go wherever I wanted until I tried to step in the street. Suddenly, I couldn't move forward.
Karen Jo: That's what the leash is for. You are not going into the street, ever.
Spyro: I was sad when Mom took my back in. Then she took Herman out and I cried and cried and jumped up on the screen door and tried to get out, but I couldn't.
Karen Jo: I wish I had had the camera with me. You had your front feet looped over the top bar on the screen door and your hind feet on the bottom bar. I am really glad that the door has a hook-and-eye for when I leave it open all day. The handle is just a pull-down type and you could pull it down with your acrobatics. I might have to close the back door to keep you from opening the screen door when I take Herman out.
Karen Jo: You came out when I got your breakfast, but went back in to eat. When I left the door open for you to get your lunch and fresh water and litter box scooped, you came out and went into both my room and the litter box room. You didn't go back into your room when you ran into Spyro; you chased him down the hall.
Oja: Hahaha! I chased Spyro all over the place. By the end of the day I had been in every room in the house, except the one with the closed door. I still go into my room to look out of my window and to eat and drink, but mostly I am in Mom's room or exploring. Last night I got Mom all to myself.
Karen Jo: Poor Spyro. After I went to bed, he jumped up on the bed like he usually does and you chased him off.
Oja: You are MY Mom and I want to sleep with you. I claim my room and your room as MY territory.
Karen Jo: I hope you learn to share more. Herman and Spyro are used to sharing the bed with me.
Oja: We'll see. Right now I hiss and growl at the mancats almost every time I see them.
Karen Jo: I have noticed that it's tapered off just a little bit, not much, but a little.
