Things Are Getting Better

 I have spending a lot of time up off the floor since Oja came out of her room.  She doesn't hassle me when I am up here or on the couch or on a chair.  Mom finally has a good excuse for not blogging.

Karen Jo:  That's right.  My computer developed a persistent hard-drive glitch right after I finished blogging and visiting the last time.  I have been very busy setting up the new computer and installing software and downloading stuff.  I can do almost anything now, but use my e-mail.  I have spent hours trying this and that, but nothing works.  My ISP rejects my sign-in every time.

Oja has stolen my spot on the bed next to Mom.  I fought with Emma over that, but I am not fighting with Oja about it, at least not yet.  I have been able to sleep on Mom's feet while Oja has my spot.

Karen Jo:  Oja usually seems content to stay up by my chest while you and Spyro sleep at my feet.  Every once in a while, she snarls and charges, though.

Do you know how I got some attention from Mom yesterday?  I got up in her lap and demanded that she pet me.  I stayed for about 20 minutes.

Karen Jo:  I was amazed.  You have never done anything more than walk across my lap to get from the computer chair to the bed before.
 Spyro:  I think Oja and I may eventually become friends.  She will stay in the same room with me without getting snarly about it.  Mean Mom won't take my outside any more.  I wanna go outside!

Karen Jo:  I am sorry Spyro, but I have been really busy trying to get my new computer set up. Besides that, it has been raining almost every evening.  I would have taken you out tonight after supper, but it was pouring down rain.

Spyro: Bah!
Oja:  This is Mom's computer chair.  It has become my favorite nap spot since I came out of my room.  If I don't want to be disturbed, I still go to my room and get up on the high bookshelf or go into my hidey-hole.  I am getting used to the mancats.  I don't hiss at them any more.  I only snarl at them if I think they are crowding me.

Karen Jo:  Right.  You smacked Herman for walking under the computer chair.

Oja:  He got too close to me.  I don't tolerate Herman as well as I tolerate Spyro.  The other day I let Spyro into my room to play with my toys.

Karen Jo:  I tried to get a picture of the both of you playing with your toys in your room, but you chased him out just as I got back with the camera.

Oja:  He got too close to me.  I found out that the Turbo Track is fun to play with.

Karen Jo:  I suspected that you were playing with it, because the ball was in a different position in the track every time I came into your room, but the other day I actually saw you bat the ball around the track.

Oja:  Mom doesn't get mad at me for eating the food in the kitchen any more.

Karen Jo:  That's because Spyro does go into your room and eat your food.  I probably won't do much visiting tonight.  There are still things to be installed on the new computer.  I will try to get back to regular blogging and visiting very soon

That computer sounds complicated to set up! My human has always had Macs - they are more expensive, but they are up and running the moment you are done transferring over the files from one computer to the other. She would probably be in big trouble if she had to switch to a PC and Windows! Or Linux!

It's not so hard to set up a PC any more either. Outlook Express works exactly like MacMail, the Woman knows she's had to trouble shoot it at the office she used to work at often enough.

We're glad things are settling down somewhat, and certainly hope for peaceful co-existence between Oja and Herman, if not outright friendship.

Good luck with the computer set-up. It's always a pain in the butt to get everything installed on a new one.

Thanks Karen Jo for letting me know what was going on. Just let Merceda know what you want in the way of fabric. Merceda is Forty paws. Sure sounds like you have your hands full there. Take care.

Oh sweeties Oja, Herman and Spyro, the time is the best thing in this case. Soon you will be more tolerant and living happy, and together with much love!

Whiskers UP that you are starting to REALLY get along! This is such great news.

We are glad you are all starting to get on better together. We hope the new computer is soon fully up and running.


Glad everyone is doing so well.
Good luck with the new computer. Once you get it all set up you will be very happy.

These sound like promising developments, indeed. It sounds as if you're all finding ways to make things work out. :)

Good luck with the computer set-up ... not fun!

Apart from the hideous PC problems, life is sounding pretty good. You are a nice cat, Herman, to share your mummy with two new pets.
