Karen Jo: Since the weather turned cool, sunpuddles have become prime napping spots. I was afraid that the new heat-resistant windows would diminish their desirability, but the windows do not prevent the sunshine from warming up whatever it falls on.
Spyro has been being mean to me.
Spyro: Have not!
Karen Jo: Yes, you have, a little bit. Herman was relaxing in the above chair and Spyro jumped up to join him. I don't know why, but Herman flattened his ears and gave Spyro some mighty growls. Spyro appeared to ignore Herman, but Herman jumped down and found another spot while Spyro settled down in Herman's sunpuddle. A couple of days ago I actually saw Spyro harassing Herman while Herman was trying to use the litter box. I don't know why Spyro would do that. Each of them has his/her favorite litter box. Herman prefers the one in the entrance hall, Spyro likes the one in the human litter box room and Oja likes the one in her room. I heard Herman digging in his favorite litter box, then I heard him growling, so I went to see what was going on. Herman was crouched in the corner by the door and Spyro was standing near the litter box, but scooted away when he saw me. Herman got back in the litter box and Spyro ran up and actually tried to bite him. I shooed Spyro away and let Herman do his business in peace. I wish I knew what was going on with those two. Sometimes I see them giving each other nose kisses and butt sniffs just like they used to when they were the best of friends and sometimes they seem like they are going to get into a big fight.
Oja: You never can tell about Mancats. Me, I am friends with both of them, though I cuddle with Herman more often that I cuddle with Spyro. Herman will let me nap with him in peace, but sooner or later, Spyro always wants to rassle.
Spyro: Hey! You pounce me lots of times when I am just walking by.
Oja: You are the one who starts to rassle when all I want to do is snuggle with you.
Karen Jo: We have all been doing fine. I haven't blogged in a long time because I upgraded my internet speed and had lots of problems to begin with. I have most of them ironed out now. I am looking forward to being able to visit more blogs as I won't have to wait as long for blogs to load. Yippee!

Karen Jo: I found what might be tiny scabs on the back of Herman's neck and this is what I think happened to put Herman off rasslin' with Spyro. Spyro just looks hurt and confused when Herman hisses at him, but he backs off and goes to do something else. Oja still pounces Spyro for rasslin'.
Karen Jo: I put in an order for a 16-pound bag of your kibble, but you finished what you had before it came in and the store didn't have any small bags of it, so I had to get something else to fill in. I can put in regular orders for the big bags now, so you should never run out again.
Spyro: I don't know why Herman doesn't like me any more. I still like him.
Karen Jo: I think you hurt him the last time you rassled with him. You have very sharp claws. I always have puncture marks somewhere on my body from you.
Spyro: Oja still plays with me. In fact, she usually starts it.
I hope Mom takes some new pictures of us soon. My handsome fur has almost all grown back now and Mom is chasing me around with the brush again. I will have to get used to it all over again. She even brushes Spyro and Oja a little bit.
