Karen Jo: Mom is getting thoroughly sick of bed. I went to bed right after supper last night and got restless almost immediately. I made myself stay there, though and got lots of rest for my ribs. The news from my doctor was worse than I was expecting. I fractured four, maybe five, ribs but there was only a tiny bit of displacement, so no treatment other than bed rest was necessary. I get to have them x-rayed again in a couple of weeks. I am going to try staying up and using the computer, but no housework and see how I do. If I start aching, it's back to bed.
Oja: I wouldn't care if you went back to bed right now. I love cuddling with you.
Oja: Sorry about the yell. It's a dead end back there and I had no place to go if you decided that you wanted a rumble. I hate feeling trapped by another cat.
Karen Jo: I have seen other kitties sit in that little box, but you are the very first one to nap there. All the kitties have been having a great time. Oja hardly hisses at any cat now. All three boys rassle with each other and Oja rassles with Spyro. Austin tried to start a rasslin' match with Oja this morning, but she growled at him and he backed off. When I put Oja in her PTU, all the other kitties acted very concerned. Rocio pulled at the bars to get her out; Spyro purred at her and Austin tried to make a game of it by playing footsie between the bars. Oja didn't like that last move at all. I think Rocio licked Oja's head last night, but Oja trotted away from him so quickly that I couldn't be sure.
Spyro: I really like the computer room. I jump up and help Mom with the computer all the time.
Karen Jo: I have discovered one tiny drawback to having a nice big computer desk with room for everything: there is also room for kitties. My old arrangement was so crowded that only Oja could fit in my lap and there was no room on the desk at all. Now there is room for any of the kitties to walk all around the desk and get between me and the monitor and walk on the keyboard. I don't mind, really. It's kind of cool to watch Spyro watch the cards when I play card games. Oja has more room to be lap kitty while I compute and Rocio has room to be a lap kitty, too.
