Karen Jo: I see this as a great advertisement for the sturdiness of Forty Paws' ham-micks. This one is holding almost 27 pounds of cat.
Mom got a new swivel chair and put it in the living room. It's great for napping. All of us have tried it out.
Karen Jo: That one is for when I get my office set up in the forbidden room. I have the desk and chair now. All I need is the get up and go to get it organized and cleaned up.
Get up and go? That's a laugh. All Mom has been doing lately is lying around, watching TV.
Karen Jo: The Olympics are on and it has been twenty years since I could really just sit or lie down and watch them. My lying around so much has left you kitties to your own devices and what have you done?
We all made friends with each other. Spyro and I both let Oja lick us, though Spyro is apt to turn it into a game of chase or rasslin'.
Spyro: It's great. I have two rasslin' partners now and one partner for chase games.
Oja: I think it's OK. Neither one of the boys has licked me, though. I hang around next to Herman sometimes and I play with Spyro. Mom is surprised that Herman and I don't fight over the bed.
Karen Jo: Yes, I am. Oja has taken Herman's old spot next to my chest at night and Herman doesn't seem to care. When I am lying on the bed in the evening, watching TV, Herman will come up sometimes and claim his old spot. That makes both of us very happy. Last evening, we were together like that and Oja jumped up on the bed. I thought that there would be a fight, but there wasn't. Oja looked things over, then decided she would rather have the computer chair. When Oja is next to me and Herman jumps up on the bed, he claims a spot near my feet. Sometimes Spyro jumps up on the bed too, but he never stays long. Spyro just isn't a bed cat, at least not in warm weather. I imagine that they will all pile on when it gets cold.
