Gracie here. The peep’s anxiety is stoking up. She keeps using the word “dental.” Then she gives me sad eyes. I hope that doesn’t mean me. Not a fan of the vet especially when they make me stay overnight. Who will hork up a hairball on the peep’s favorite throw? Who will pester her while she’s trying to type. I completely screwed up her screen while she was typing this week. It was so fun. Who knew that if you walk on those black squares, magic happens.
We’re getting presents. The peep ordered a new “magic” comb. We have different varieties and this new one looks nice. I’ll give it a test run when it comes in. She also bought clear plastic protection for one of our chairs. Gus is mostly good but there is one chair he likes to claw. Not a lot but this is “guaranteed” to break him of the habit. I didn’t have the heart to tell the peep he will move to another spot. Let her have her happiness no matter how short-term it is.
There better be nip in that package too!
We all had a scare. Whiskers, our next door outside, semi-feral cat went missing for a day. We can look down into the patio where he gets fed so we watched for him. He’s like Gus! Never misses a meal so we were all concerned when he didn’t show up for breakfast. Before you feel sorry for him, he’s got a great life. He and his sis have a heated outdoor cat house with two meals a day. They have patio furniture to sleep on when the sun moves over head and lots of squirrels to chase. He’s around six and the neighbor doesn’t think he would transition to an indoor cat. At least not now. Maybe when he’s old.
The peeps bought a new Christmas tree. It’s a short skinny one and fits without smooshing furniture. We are waiting to see if there will be room for the nice velvety base cover she used for the last one. It has our hairball stains nicely positioned. It’s a lot of work to break in new stuff. We can’t hork a hairball on command. We must work at it.
All of us are beyond caring about redecorating the tree although if there is low fruit, it may be knocked off. We are cats after all!
That’s the news from the ‘hood. Have a great weekend!
