Boredom 101

Wednesday. Boredom day! Karlyn is at work again. I am lonely and bored. There is no one here to pet me and love on me and play with me. I am so BORED! I cat nap a lot. I've had 10 naps and 14 snacks since Karlyn left for work. I have also looked out the window a lot. But, with us living in the city, the only wildlife for me to watch are the college students across the street.

If only Karlyn could work at home. Then I wouldn't be so lonely and bored all day. But what can she do from home? If only we could afford to buy a B&B or a campground. Than Karlyn could stay home with me all day!

I'm hiding under the bed because there is thunder outside. It's very scary. I wish Karlyn was here.

Karlyn is at work. And there's nothing to do except sleep and look out the window. I get so little time with her during the week. She wakes up, pets me while she sits on the white chair in the water room. I stand on the side of the tub, with my front paws on her thigh. She kisses my head and scratches my neck. Bliss!

Then she stands under my big drinking fountain for a while. Then, she dries off and pets me while she puts her clothes on. Sometimes, I get in her way because I want to get as much petting in as possible before she leaves for work. But she never gets mad. She just puts me under the covers for a game of hide and seek.

Then she pets me while she eats something she won't share. She says granola isn't Pumpkin food. I think I should be the judge of that. Next thing I know, she's walking out the door, telling me to have a nice day and to be a good boy. I watch her leave, knowing I'm in for another long and lonely day without her. Only a couple more hours til she comes home. Then she'll pet me and drag my string around the apartment.
