Halloween Spooks

Today I got spooked.

I'm certain there's something under the bed.

Some unseen thing.


I was on edge,
too nervous to go outside.

But Mom took me anyway.
It turned out to be good.

We went to the office again.
Nice Lady 2 was there. 
I sniffed around.

It's relaxing here.

When it was time to go home,
I played it casual.

Once outside,
I couldn't get enough of rolling on the sidewalk.

When we were home,
I enjoyed the outside a little longer.

I sat on the doormat because it was warmer than the concrete.

I eventually went inside
 and Mom played with me.

The rest of the day was lazy.

But I'm still convinced there's something under the bed.

Fun in the Office

Today I started off with my new obsession.

I meow and meow at Mom,
but when she "comes to watch me eat"
I walk right past my food bowl and jump straight
onto the window sill and demand that she pet me.

Later she filmed me jumping onto the fridge.
She expected I would just climb into my
Ultimate Box of Rebellion and settle down.

Much to her regret and my relief she stopped
filming.  What actually happened immediately
after this jump was me loosing my footing
and falling off the fridge, 
taking half the magnets with me.

Now, at least, my humiliation won't be smeared
all over the interwebs.

We made our usual trip to the mail
and stopped to visit the Nice Ladies in the office.

Nice Lady 2 started making noise in the corner,
so I started to walk away,
feeling a bit unnerved...

then I realized I was interested in what she was doing
and walked back.

She was trimming the plant!
You can see her hiding behind it trying not to
startle me as I investigate.

They let me play there for a bit.
Mom even joined in.

She toyed with me using bits of the plant.

Nice Lady 2 started picking up the fall leaves
that had blown in through the door.
I checked to see if it was going to be
as fun as the plant trimmings.

But it wasn't.
So I went back to playing.
Mom got me spinning in circles!

I had to rest after awhile.

By the time we went home,
I only had a few squirms to get out
of my system.

Unfortunately, it turned out to be the day
that guy comes and takes Mom away.

I sat near Daddy all evening until he went to get her.

As soon as she was home,
I lured her to the window again.

Now I'm just going to stare
at her until she takes me for a nighttime walk.

Not My Birthday

Today is not my birthday.

Mom opened the door, but it was still a bit chilly.

We went on the usual walk to get the mail.
Both Nice Ladies were in the office!

Nice Lady 2 gave me some much deserved attention.

I allowed it.

I tried to get Mom to go home, but she
visited too long.

Eventually I decided to try my best to pretend
I was already outside.

She got the hint.

Once outside I gave into the pull of the sidewalk.

The rest of the day I spent napping.

Mom hung out with Computer Aunt.
After awhile I decided to join the hangout.

I even graced Mom's lap with my presence.

After a bit I decided to sit half on the computer
so I could see better.

I begged to go on a nighttime walk,
but Mom still complains about the cold and won't take me.

I guess I'll just sit in her lap until her leg falls asleep.
Then maybe she'll give in to the need for a walk.

3rd Birthday!

it's my BIRTHDAY!!!

So why am I in my Box of Rebellion?

Let's talk about the weather, shall we?

Time to get the mail.
I don't like the air.

It's kind of cold out here...

Is that snow?!

On second thought...
I'm going back inside!

Mom carried me to the mailbox anyway.

Hurry back! Hurry back!

We stopped in the office.
I guess I can deal with this.

Nice Lady was busy,
but she still greeted me and wished me
a happy birthday.

After a brief visit I was ready to go home.

that bit of snow is still there!

Cold! Wet! Don't let it touch me!
It's my birthday! When do I get what I want? that my favorite wet food on the counter?

Let me see!

It is!  Let me have some!

It's my birthday, I don't care if I'm not allowed on the counter,
I'm getting me some of that!

Oh, wait for you to prepare it right? OK.

Are you done yet?

Gimme gimme gimme!

Put it down, Mom!

Mom gave me some good playtime today!

She even knew I wanted the feather toy!

Then she even took me on a nighttime walk!
She said she took me early because it was 
only going to get colder.
It was already 33°F.

As it was, even I didn't want to stay on my walk very long.

Then the Uncle and the Monday people came over.

I figured it was time to relax.

All in all it's been a good birthday.
