Karen Jo: I am very sorry, Bambino. I didn't forget your birthday, I just didn't feel like blogging. I haven't felt like doing much of anything lately. I'm not depressed or sick or anything serious, just kind of in a funk. I'll jerk myself out of it and blog more, I promise.
Bambino: I think you owe me a big birthday bash.
Karen Jo: What would you like?
Bambino: I want to have a luau over at the Tabby Cat Club. It's awesome over there right now.
Karen Jo: That's a good idea. We will do it tomorrow, exactly one month after your birthday.
Karen Jo: Sorry, Horus. You see, Jose is such a bland name for such a wonderful cat. In this photo you can finally see his Egyptian eyes. Horus starts with the same sound as Jose and Horus' glyph is an eye, so I changed his name to Horus.
Karen Jo: There's not much to tell, really. I have taken in Spyro, Oja and Rocio for checkups and Spyro and Oja got rabies boosters. There is a new rabies serum now that is safe for FeLV+ kitties. All of them are in perfect health. Oja has neither lost nor gained weight, but I think she has traded some fat for muscle. I am seeing her up high in spots she has never been before, like up in the high windows in on top of the file cabinet.
Karen Jo: You are lots bigger than Oja, but Horus is only a tiny bit bigger than you, so there's a big difference. You can run away from Horus or smack him back a lot easier than Oja can with you.
Karen Jo: I am helping out a friend by babysitting a few times a week. You kitties actually get more attention when she's here.
Spyro: I don't particularly like the attention she wants to give me: pat, pat, pat. She pats a little hard.
Karen Jo: I am trying to teach her to be gentle. She's only one.
Horus: I love it when she starts waving Da Bird around, though she is rather wild with it.
Bambino: I love her cage. I can get in it when she's crawling around and I'm safe from her. When she's in it, we are all safe from her attentions.
Horus: She's not so bad. She pets as well as pats. I like her.
