Spyro Goes Outside

Spyro: Oja's picture came out all black and Herman got up and walked away after Mom pushed the button on the camera, so it's just me today. See me tasting the grass?  It's mostly brown from the heat and Mom not watering it.  She really needs to get up and water it on watering days.  Today Mom picked me up and showed me the back yard.  At first I just snuck around on my belly, but after a while I got used to my harness and started to walk normally.  I explored about half of the back yard.  I rolled on the patio and chewed on grass and found some dirt to dig in and roll in.  I even found an interesting hole and stuck my paw in it, but didn't find anything.  I sniffed an ant and chased a moth that flew up when I explored a bush.  Mom let me stay about about 15 minutes.  If she had let me stay out just a little bit longer, I might even have peed outside.  The first thing I did when Mom took me back in and took off my harness was pee in the litter box.  Then I tore all around the house and meowed to be let out again.

Karen Jo:  I am surprised that you didn't find the gopher holes more interesting.  Maybe the visible holes are all old and don't smell much like gopher any more.

Why didn't you use one of my old pictures?

Karen Jo:  They show you with all your fur and your friends might find that very confusing.

I didn't have much fun today.  Spyro picked a fight with me to take over the ham-mick.  We had quite a smack down, but I finally gave up and got out of the ham-mick.  Spyro jumped in it, then decided he didn't really want it.

Karen Jo:  I think you have fun rasslin' with Spyro.  You really cried when I took Spyro outside.

It's not fair.  He gets to go outside and I don't.

Karen Jo:  The harness isn't big enough for you.  If I got you a harness, would you wear it?

I won't know until I get to try it.

Oja:  I was nice and stayed still for a picture.

Karen Jo:  I guess there wasn't enough light.  All I got was a black square.  You didn't take your Interferon again.  That's two days in a row that it got wasted because you jerked your head away at the last instant.  I hope you licked it off your fur.

Oja:  I don't like stuff squirted in my mouth.

Karen Jo:  I can't even bribe you into starting to accept it because you don't like treats.

Oja:  I played with my fish today.

Karen Jo:  I noticed, but you wouldn't come out, even though I left the door open for quite a while.

Oja:  Spyro was at the door.

Kare Jo:  You could have come out just far enough to meet him.

Oja:  I don't want to meet him.  He scares me.

Harnesses and leashes are REALLY annoying, but they are good ideas on yer first few times out. We mean, ya dont wanna panik or annything!

Iffen you are allowed outside (safely), you will find that peeing outside it OUTSTANDINGLY ENJOYABLE! Or even if it is on a leash.

What an adventure, Spyro - you got to chase a MOTH OUTSIDE! How cool! Oja, I feel bad that you refuse your interferon. I have had to have medicine syringed and it is no fun, so I do understand. My human does it so swiftly that I don't know what happened until it is over, or if it is really nasty stuff, she does the burrito wrap on me with a towel. But I bet your human knows all the tricks already.

Oja, we do the same thing with liquid medicine! We like it when our mom gets to wear it.

Have a happy, safe and quiet Fourth of July! Should be quieter this year, yes?

Cute pic:) It is almost getting to the point of being ridiculous to spend money on water when it is so hot. So far our grass is doing OK but we do have a few spots that are really getting stressed. We really need this heat to go away.

Happy Independence Day and Happy Birthday to the U.S.A.!!!

Wow, that's pretty neat that you went outside on your harness, Spyro.

And Herman ... Sammy did not like his harness, so we hope you like it if Mom Karen gets one for him.

Oja, we sure hope the light is better sometimes soon, because we love seeing pictures of your beautiful self. We hope you feel safer around the boys soon, too.

Hugs to you all, and Happy Fourth!


Spyro that is really neat you got outside. I bet you'll be waiting for the next time.
