Kitties! I noticed it is not as bone witheringly cold outside ( I can feel it when mom comes or goes through the house front door) and not as cool in the house, and so I am not glued to her each night. I have allowed some space between us, AND I have gotten up to follow other persuasions. Patrols have to be made after all, and safety is foremost. I will protect my home and family at all times.
You know, I'm not even embarrassed to tell you that I usually (not always) come when called. I will usually trot in when I hear "c'mere"! or "Katie" several times will get me on my way too. "treat" "supper" "breakfast" "brushies" will also get all four movin'. "wanna kissie"? will get a lukewarm and grudging action maybe 60% of times. "I'm home" will get her a response and dancing around her legs. But you ain't never seen what happens when I am well filled with hairball treats from Greenies.
I have those necessary treats for my solid waste passage, in the morning after "brekfusht" as she calls it to me (as though I can't understand a plain spoken word!! The rudeness she exhibits is unbelievable when she talks down to me like that!)
Then, as the treats make their way down down down the stomach tube...round round round the system too..I head into my commode. Kitties, I accomplish what I went into the box for, and I have made mariodacat's mom laugh so hard when she hears my mom on the phone describing what I am doing!
I come charging out of the box like a fuse was lit and run looking like this: I run blazingly fast
into the living room and run sideways besides! My back is up, I hop at least eight feet or so into the room dancing sideways looking straight into mom's face. My head is turned toward her laughing face as I dance by with my back up, hopping and jumping up with all four feets leaving the ground! I take off down the hall like Spitty was after me!!
Mom said I ought to sing that old laxative commercial, whatever it was, where James Brown or someone sang in the background to some dancing actress "I feel good! Like I knew I would" etc etc. after she took her laxative. Cause I sure feel good after making my night deposit. She knows I did because it's newly minted savor fills the air for a bit.
