Payback — Jake has to be boarded. He gets shots and has litter issues so it’s best to take him to kitty camp. They all fuss over him and he likes it. I pay for it when he gets home. He yells all the way home in the car until my nerves are rattled. Then he yells in the house and has to smell the other cats. (I am sure he is convinced I added a cat while he was gone.) Then it’s outside to pee on every bush to re-establish his territory. What a cat!
A present – After all this, Jake, the 16-year old one-toothed cat, killed and brought into the house a dead chipmunk. It was a present. I guess he’s feeling his oats! The beloved husband didn’t find any humor in this.
Speaking of chippies – Before we left I picked our tomatoes throwing out the ones that had bite marks on them. I was throwing them over the fence into the back ravine. I noticed one didn’t make it all the way back and there was the back-end of a chippie sticking out of a tomato. It was bigger the he was but he was trying to get a grip to carry it back to the nest. It was so funny.
Coming home – One of the best things about coming home to a house full of pets is that someone is glad to see you. They stick to you like glue. Every where I turned there were at least three cats within three feet. I love it but it won’t last!
Computers, computers – My computer is dying. It overheats and has to be completely shut down between uses. I bought a new one before I left and need to set it up. I dread it. I know I am supposed to be excited. It’s the latest and the greatest but it’s a new operating system with a new version of Windows Office. It’s going to slow me down for a while and I will need to call the manufacturer at least once. When it comes to computers, I am not so good at change.
How was your week?
