Yesterday Mom went to get the mail without me.
I didn't really mind.
What I did mind was that it was Wednesday which
meant she would be leaving me.
All I wanted to do today was hang out with Mom.
So I went under the table and sat in my Box of Rebellion
so I could properly give her the 'evil eye'.
Well, she left anyway.
(Insert heavy sigh here.)
Mom did leave a couple of my favorite toys
strategically placed around the house.
So at least I had some entertainment while I
was home alone.
When she and Daddy came home later that night,
I meowed and meowed.
Mom let me outside on the tether for a bit, but I
didn't want to be out there for long.
Have I mentioned that it's starting to get cold?
So I came inside and curled up on the back of the couch for awhile.
It wasn't long, however, before I became a bundle of
wild cat energy!
I ran all over the house!
When I returned to the back of the couch,
I began to play with Mom.
Unfortunately, I had some difficulty knowing
where play ended and seriousness began.
My hyper mood got the best of me and I decided
it would be a good time to see where I stood in
the family hierarchy.
I quickly found out that I was still ranked beneath Mom.
She grabbed me by the scruff and held me in her arms until
I calmed down a bit.
When she let me go I was better behaved, but
still full of energy!
So I went into the box in the living room and played
with my fish toy.
Wait a minute...that's the 'Cat Trap' box.
Dang it! I fell for it again!
When I finally expended all my energy,
I curled up next to Mom on the couch.
She says she'll be able to spend more time with me today.
