Karen Jo: I have a new schedule while my ribs finish healing. I get up fairly early in the morning, feed the kitties, get dressed, check my email, read and put out the snail mail, clean up the kitchen, water and scoop the kitties, pick up the old kitty toys and put out different ones and do one housecleaning job. If I have time left over before dinner, I blog and visit. After dinner, I lie down and watch TV or read until time to feed the kitties, then do more of the same until bedtime. This way I spend 12-13 hours in bed, resting my ribs. If I have to go out during the day grocery shopping or visiting with friends, it plays havoc with my blogging time. I don't always stick to the schedule, either, like tonight. I went over to a friend's house during blogging time, so I am blogging during TV time. There is nothing on that I want to watch, anyway, and just sitting up doesn't seem to put any strain on my ribs.
Karen Jo: I care about my computer desk chair because it is brand new. You kitties have two scratching posts, three cardboard scratchers and all the rest of the furniture in the house to scratch on.
Karen Jo: You will have your choice of Now! senior weight management food, Now! kitten food or Go! adult food, which I will buy when I have to stop using the Hill's. If I don't see you chowing down on any of those, I will get you some more Hill's, but the Now! and Go! are better for you.
Oja: Do not!
Rocio: Do, too! Last night when Mom was lying on the bed watching TV, Oja got all comfy lying next to her. When I was sure that Oja was too comfy to want to move, I jumped up on Mom's thighs, with my head on her tummy, just within petting range. Oja didn't even twitch. After a little while, I crept up a little farther on Mom and put my head on her chest. Mom has such nice pillows on her chest. Not a peep out of Oja, though now we are lying side by side, only inches from each other. Then I slowly slid my backside over toward Oja, so that my side was almost touching Oja's head. She began grooming me and didn't growl at all. She likes me!
Oja: I was not grooming you; I was only tasting your fur. I didn't do it much at all, anyway. And I growled at you this afternoon.
Rocio: You should have been growling at Spyro. He was the one on the vanity above you, getting ready to pounce.
Spyro: I was not either going to pounce.
Oja: I saw him and got out of the way before he could, anyway.
Karen Jo: Life is never dull around here. Oja is getting more and more tolerant of both boycats. She reached out a paw and touched Austin's side today as they were passing each other in the hall. At first I thought she was going to whap him, but she only touched him. I just wish the boys' adoption papers would get here.
