Wake up call

Darn human-mom caught me in the bathroom trying to leisurely eat my latest um, accomplishment, before I thought anyone was stirring this morning.

That woke up the other human and together they raised such a stir that I had to take my dinner back outside and finish it under the patio table.

I did yowl a protest instead of my normal "feed me" squeak, but my mouth was kinda full at the time so less of an impact....

sulk...

Later when they were madly zipping around I was so full I just kinda lay there on the bedroom rug and made them step over me.

Oh? Leftovers? Who, me? What leftovers? Oh, those inedible bits under the table? darn, you noticed...

Regards,

Many thanks from the Dynamic Feline Duo to the Cool Housesitter Human. We got along very nicely, as usual. We cast wistful looks at her when she packed up to leave. Now we are back to fussing happily over Our Humans once we got over the idea that maybe we could have three permanent humans on staff instead of two. We are parking next to them, making sure they have every opportunity to let us in and out of human doors, and the usual welcoming committee activities.

Back to the TV reception issue: even the people with new sets which don't require an analog signal converter box are having huge hassles with the new digital TV signals. Apparently normal antennas aren't strong enough and it's back to a world of aerials on roofs but only if there are no trees or other buildings in the way.

This is insane.

It is not worth it to us to go to cable or satellite for the simple reason that it's too expensive and not enough good material to make it worthwhile even with a bizillion extra channels.

I am wondering if HD radio has the same issues. I may revert to being a child of the radio again.

Rant over. The cats may have the blog back.

All quiet on the western front

..but that certainly wasn't the case last night. Humans! At least we got some peace in our own yard. It was dark and quiet while all around the neighborhood humans were running around with loud bright NOISY scary things well after dark. I went out as usual to check it all out, but it got annoying even for my curious nature so when My Humans came back home I tiptoed inside. I walked very slowly of course, because no way would I let a human know it was bothering me.

Acorn found a nice calm place in the garage under His Human's truck to curl up and snooze the rest of the night away.
