Well, yesterday was my birthday, or so I am told. I guess that we really don't know the exact date so maybe I will just celebrate all month! Each day is a celebration all it's own anyhow, right? Maybe I will even give Hazel a little of my time, if she is lucky. I have to play with "the kid" occasionally to keep her on her toes. Just because I am another year older, I don't want her to think that I am getting too old to play once in a while, although it really is beneath my dignity. Besides, "the kid" craves my attention; I must be beholding to my adoring fans. Of course, her birthday is this month also, so guess that it is the least that I can do to make her happy. Maybe, then, she will get tired and go take a long nap and let me have some peace and quiet.
I still haven't seen any extra treats around here so maybe Mom forgot my special day. Or maybe she is just waiting until she feels like having an ice cream treat. I simply love ice cream and she usually shares with me. I just get so excited when I see a bowl of ice cream that I can't control myself. I take my paw and keep trying to steal the dish away from her but she usually has a pretty good grip. DRAT!! So I have to wait until she either gives me a glob in my own dish or until she gets to the bottom and it is all melty and gooey and she pours that into my bowl. YUM. Maybe I will just go stand near the freezer and meow. Think that she'll get the hint?
Today I had to go to the vet for my booster shots. Oooh, I hate that. But not as bad as Tuffy. He had to go last week and he was so mad that the vet had to take the lid off the cat carrier just to get to him. Then they held a towel over his head and just gave him the injections and closed the carrier back up. At least, I am more "dignified" than that. I cautiously came out of the carrier and Mom held me; of course I pretended to be brave and acted like I wasn't nervous at all. I just let the vet do the exam and give the injections and hopped back in the carrier. Mom said that I was a very good kitty-----I knew that!! The worst part of the whole thing was that Mom grabbed me early this morning before I had a chance to use the litter box and shoved me into the carrier. The vet said that my bladder was really full and that I probably had to go real bad. What a genius!! I already knew that too. Anyhow, being the very dignified, perfect kitty that I am, I had to hold it in until we got back home and then make a mad dash for the potty. I've seen Mom do that sometimes too, so I guess that it isn't just me. Tee Hee.
I pretty much spent the rest of the day just relaxing and taking it easy. Such a stressful morning calls for a restful afternoon. So all in all I guess that I had a pretty good day. Hazel was even in a sleepy mood, so she napped this afternoon too and didn't really bug me too much. (That is most unusual. Must be the dreary, rainy weather).
I am keeping Mom company as she is clicking away on the keyboard, which makes me awfully sleepy. So guess that I will call it a night and bid everyone a quiet, restful and relaxing evening.
If I'm lucky, maybe Mom & I can share a bowl of ice cream before I nod off.
