Hi Everyone! I decided I needed to do a fun, happy post today. I know we are all sad so I am going to do a happy Random Tuesday post. I am behind about visiting again (I know you are all shocked) which is also a good reason for some randomness!
First, I saw that Stella snuck on and posted, and so I decided she should be allowed to respond to all the mancats out there who were interested in her - here she is!
Hi everyone - especially you mancats!! Wow, I can't believe so many mancats were interested in me! I am shocked! I thought maybe I would get a nibble or two, but I had like 9 responses (and a few others who were too old for me but could be a good fit for Lola, though one who is older I did count because to be honest even though he is a bunch older than me I did have kind of a crush on him already - I just didnt' think older cats would be interested) - and I just don't know what to do! All of these mancats are sweeties and I know all of them would be great boyfriends too. I kind of wish I wasn't so awesome that all the boys would like to date me! I don't want to break any hearts so um, are ladycats allowed to have a lot of boyfriends? And if not, well, all you ladycats or ladydogs out there with boyfriends - how did you decide? Leave me your ideas in the comments! Ok, back to mom!
Thanks Stelly Bean! Ok, so Stella needs help picking a boyfriend. What else is up? Hm, well lets see...
Trixie is out of her "must rest" period after her ladygardenectomy and well, she is doing great. We played with Da Bird on Sunday night and it was her first time with it. It was so funny because Gus, Stella, Barney and Virgil love it and she was a bit timid at first. So instead of making it all crazy I made it gentle after the others kind of got tired (except Gus - he was still crazy) and made it easy for her to get. Instead of trying to go after it, Gus stood back to let her try it - the others like I said were not interested too much at that point, but Gus still was. But he stood back and watched her learn how to do it. Then I made it more wild and the others joined in but when it was near Trixie, even though the others wanted it Gus just kind of let her try it. He is such a gentleman and he treats her so well. She was definitly the one that was liked quickest when she joined the group, but Gus totally takes care of her it seems. Eventually Gus got da Bird and crunched up all the feathers so we need a replacement now.
Easter was this past weekend. We didn't do anything on Easter but went to Brad's parents and grilled the day before. The cats didn't get any treats out of it though.
Also, random fact - I can't eat things that are cute shaped. Like chocolate bunnies. Even as a kid I didn't eat them. Pretty things would also be something I would pass on because I would feel bad destroying it. Like a super fancy pretty cake.
Ok, so I planned to finish this up on Tuesday and post it but then I got a massive headache. I always have a headache from work but it was really bad yesterday, so that didn't happen. So I am fininshing this on Wednesday! Our internet is super messed up at work so visiting is almost non-existent right now - I hate it and it makes me sad, but I know you all understand, and I don't want this to be a negative post. So on to the positive.
I was watching Bones last night and realized that one of the characters, Wendel, is totally the human Gus. Even Brad agreed.
When the cats watch the birds and make their chittering noises it is so funny to watch because the noises they make are so different. Trixie's is pure chatering tooth kind of sound, Virgil is all vocal, kind of between meows and squeaks, and Stella is a combo of both. Kirzon was the same way at that age (he doesn't do the sound much anymore - hasn't really since we moved to teh house) and Barney and Gus don't make noise at all that I have noticed.
Well, this is longer than I planned. So to all you Administratvie Assistants out there (and well, if you have a pet blog you could really count yourself as one even if it isn't your vocation) I want to wish you a very happy Administrative Assistants day (which is more than my boss got me, but I swear I am not bitter). I would send you all flowers if I could!
