Sometimes I think humans must be totally crazy.

Today was a beautiful spring day. The temperature was warm and the sun was shining--a perfect day to take a long and delightful nap, don't you think? And that's exactly what I was planning, in my favorite spot, right in the middle of the humans' bed, with the sun heating my fur. How restful! If the humans had any sense, they would have lain down for a nice nap too--but of course they don't have any sense, so no sooner did I settle down than I started hearing all these noises from outside. I got up and went to the window to take a look.

There was dad, scraping our deck with a noisy metal tool--preliminary to "painting," I think he said. And there was mom, running around clumsily with a long hose and a bottle of fertilizer, meowing something about the perennial garden. She got more water on herself, I think, than she did on the perennials--MOL! Then dad grabbed some loppers and began cutting at an overgrown bush with them, while mom gathered up the branches he cut off and cut them into small pieces for disposal. Then they both went over to the fish pond and started doing something there--I couldn't see what, but they were running back and forth and carrying things. Busy, busy, busy! And noisy, noisy, noisy!

What a waste of a beautiful spring day!

I'm glad you had a restful day Athena.
Humans are strange Mol!

You're right, Athena! Why would they want to do all of that hard work on such a beautiful day when they could just be napping?

Purrs,
Coop
