(From when I was a baby)
So there are lots of holes in the toilet paper in the bathroom. Okay it was me. But, Mommie,
when you leave me all alone in the bathroom when you go away, I don’t have a scratching post. The toilet paper roll does the job nicely. I’m not going to tell Mommie where I go to scratch when she is home because she lets me run all over the house.
It will be a surprise.
But, Mommie, I was just trying to help you clean house by toppling over the “stuff” on top of the air conditioner. Mommie, I know you know that air conditioner tops are not shelves. Remember the chair in the laundry
Yesterday was Daddie’s birthday and Mommie took me to see him and to bring him a little chocolate cake she had made.
I love going to Daddie’s home. There are a lot of
nice OLD people living there. They like animals that come to visit. They don’t pinch and pull tails like the kids do. They just want someone to pet and someone who will lick their fingers and play with them.
I gave Daddie a big kiss on the cheek.
He seemed to like it. He held and petted me for a long time. Mommie was concerned that I might scratch Daddie, but I did my best to keep my claws to myself. I don’t really know Daddie very well, but I love him.
Then Mommie brought out the cake.
She had put lots of frosting on the cake, but no candles. Mommie said the cake wasn’t big enough to hold all the candles that Daddie would need.
A couple of nurses came in to sing Happy Birthday and to play with me. The nurses usually don’t
get much down time – they are always running to help someone. Mommie also brought a bigger cake to give to the staff so they wouldn’t be left out. Mommie says sometimes the employees don’t get the appreciation they deserve.
