I still don't trust my new cube. Mom put a nip treat inside and I stuck my front half in to grab the treat, then exited through the closest hole immediately. At no time was all of me inside the cube. I have really been hitting up Mom for treats lately. The nip ones make me frisky. I got six treats out of her before she left for work today. She gives me different kinds each time I ask, so I get a variety.
I finished my week off Interferon yesterday. I saw Mom get the bottle out of the refrigerator today and I meowed and meowed for it. I love my Interferon and not because I get cheese afterward. Mom kept on giving me the cheese, but it didn't seem the same without the Interferon first. I even ignored it yesterday until Mom got home from work and even then I didn't eat all of it. I ate most of it today after my Interferon.
Karen Jo: I am so glad that you love your Interferon. I love it, too, because it is helping to keep you healthy. I just wish you felt the same way about your pills.
Ugh! I don't like pills. Sometimes I threaten to poke Mom with my mighty claws when she gives me one.
Karen Jo: Sometimes you do poke me with your mighty claws, although I have gotten better at seeing it coming and letting you go before it happens. I can always pick up the pill after you spit it out and give it to you again. With all this talk of Herman sticking me with his claws, I should probably explain it better. Herman normally just pricks me lightly with his claws to wake me up or get my attention. It is extremely rare for him to leave any kind of mark. The exception is when he objects to taking a pill. Then he means business and draws blood if he connects. However, this hardly ever happens. Just lifting his paw is enough for me to get the message and leave him alone for a bit about the pill. Usually he just tries to twist his head away or chews lightly on my finger.
Mom and I played some today both before and after work, though I didn't really seem in the mood. The wind made noises and that distracted me. I did manage to get some sun, though, both on the floor and on my platform.
