Well little brother, it's almost 2008. Twelve years we'll have been together. You've moved with me at least half a dozen times, and this year you did it again. Only for the first time in a long time there are new cats involved. You've tried to take Banjo under your wing, but he didn't fit. Now sometimes I think you wished you had thumbs so that you could build a box, lead Banjo inside, and lock him away for the rest of eternity...or at least long enoughfor you to remember what it was like without him constantly following you around. But you really can't blame him for the desire to hang with the world's softest, cleanest, most magnificently perfect and wonderful cat on earth. He does have his merits. He's managed to draw Rosie's attention from you so you end up not getting licked as much.
And he is kinda cute, though not very bright.
Then there's Mama Cat. I don't think either of you have anything to say to each other on any subject, but at least you're not trying to kill each other, which in a house of 2 dogs and four cats is a really big deal. Everyone seems to be finding their place, and all is well. This must be what Glasnost felt like, but we have toilet paper.
Speaking of toilet paper we have some new cat litter. You seem to like it and pee in it heartily, but we know that if the box does not meet your exacting standards you will take a Dump of Vengeance. You've been most pleased lately your Excellency, and we hope to be able to extend to you the level of service to which you have become accustomed. Stopping the drought I think would be a nice gesture. We did start giving you more canned food, so how's about it?
You seem to be over your cold. I was worried this might be a repeat of the sinus infection of 2000 when I had to hand feed you water through a dropper and put a thermometer in your butt 2-3 times a day, and of course there were the antibiotics, which was at least in a liquid form. You and your sister with the holding of the pills...you couldn't just swallow them? But you're over the cold and back in the pink.
Otherwise, you continue to be the most Magnificent and Superior of Moos. You have reclaimed your rightful place on the bed, and are as warm, soft and silky as ever. Thanks for putting up with the journey. It's been a delight having you come with me. You are my special little guy. Have a great, healthy, and happy 2008 buddy.
