The humans left me for what felt like years. They said they went to the desert for a few days. I don't get it. It's hot here. Why go to a hotter place? They explained that the temperatures get down into the 50's at night in the desert. I could handle that. I would like to feel cool. Snuggling up against these warm creatures all the time is tough work. To cool off around here, I have to turn over on my back and spread my legs.
Um, Oreo? Don't talk like that. The humans won't like it.
Sheesh. I'm always in trouble.
They told me they went on a lake trail famous for rattlesnakes. Oh! Oh! Now THAT sounds fun. I love snakes.
Your shoe string isn't really a snake, Silly.
Other humans stopped by. They played with me and fed me. They called me a cat orb.
No, Goofball. They said you were a "cat whore". You'll go with anybody.
I'm not sure what that means. I'm sure they were just talking sweet to me like all humans do.
The female human is not tolerant of me once she returned. She said something about having to re-train me because I've forgotten things I'm not supposed to do. I have no idea what she is talking about. I just want to be close to her.....on the toilet, putting on her shoes and clothes, taking off her shoes and clothes, preparing her food on the countertop, reading her books and emails... She keeps telling me that she doesn't need my help.
The humans gave me this giant contraption that dispenses my food at regular intervals. Ha! That thing is useless. It never provides enough of those ugly dry morsels and I have to wrestle with it to get it to spit out some more. I was very excited when that silly female human spilled the container one day. She and the male tried to get all the food back into the bin but I quickly swept a few under a rug for later. Hee Hee.
Reffie told me to tell you that she won a blog contest hosted by Unfinished Person. I've heard of unfinished meals, although I've never experienced one, but a person being unfinished? I'm very confused. Anyway, Reffie won a collection of personalized items. She got running books, a cookbook, and a couple of country music CD's. She sounds excited. She likes running and cooking and music. I like running, eating, and mice so I guess we have lots in common.
Whoa! Sorry about that folks. Oreo's food dispenser just dumped and he stomped on the keyboard as he bolted for his dinner.
