Mom and dad are learning that they have to look down and around them when they open and close doors, bags, and boxes, of any kind! I'm always the first one there to check things out--curious as they say.
Dad was off from work the other day and left to go run some errands for a few hours. He was back home by the time mom came home during her lunch break from work. As usual, mom came looking for all of us and said to dad, "Where's Riley?" I was very quiet at first as they roamed around the house calling my name, looking in all my favorite spots. They knew it was unusual because I am not the shy type! Suddenly, they heard my little meow! I was locked in one of the bathrooms! They keep the bathroom doors shut so my doggie brother Quincy can't go in them to mess around, which he loves to do.
Anyway, they opened the bathroom door and I came trotting out! Boy, did I leave evidence behind as to what I did the whole time I was in the bathroom! Sure was fun playing with toilet paper, knocking things off the counter, and diving under the bathroom rug!
Poor dad, mom made sure he could hear her when she repeatedly said to me several times that day and night, "What happened Riley, did daddy lock you in the bathroom today?" Geez, mom, it was an accident, you're such a nag! Dad felt bad enough already.
The other thing that happened this week was that our new condo arrived and dad put it together right away. We were jumping all over the pieces before dad could finish putting it together but it's the one piece of cat furniture that we can all get on at the same time and play together. We've been taking advantage of it as much as we can!
Here's to more adventures!
