Thursday Thirteen, Edition 2

This is a photo of me yearning to go outside before the move to the new Morning Scratch facility. I've had a discussion with my investor about being more proactive in taking photos for the newspaper. It's ridiculous that I must use file photos.


With warm days upon us, I've been thinking of the wonderful feeling of grass between my toes. Other cats have launched Strolling Season. I don't have a stroller, but I do have a too-small-for-my-now-bigger-belly harness, with leash. I've submitted a buy request to my investor for a new harness. I'm sure she'll find the money for it; we can always cut back on supplies for Kat 3 and Sara, if we're short on cash.

I've been thinking of:

1. Marking my territory. With the move recently to the new Morning Scratch facility, I've yet to mark my backyard as mine.

2. Eating grass and puking

3. Chasing bugs

4. Hurting bugs

5. Eating bugs

6. Sniffing the fresh air while on the other side of the window screen.

7. "Fertilizing" the garden

8. Walking the yard with my investor -- alone time to talk about my business goals without Kat 3 and Sara butting in.

9. Lying in the wheelbarrow.

10. Lying at my investor's investor's feet while he relaxes in the backyard, too.

11. Well, really, lying anywhere I want in the backyard.

12. Trying to climb over the fence into the neighbor's yard fast enough that I'm not caught and put back on the ground.

13. Eating grass and puking

Yep, you definitely need a new harness and leash so you can go outside right away. I think 3, 4, and 5 are my favorites. I never ever did the eating grass and bomiting thing though. Is that fun?

Hi Bogdan, I'm so glad you're feeling better! Feeling sick is terrible. I hope you get your new harness soon so you can enjoy your whole backyard! I'm not sure if it is the grass or the bugs that make you bomit though....at least your "investor" won't have to clean it up if it's outside!
Enjoy your quality alone time!

You look very comfy up there in that big window. We have already been doing number 6. We are anxious to go strolling when it stops raining. We are looking forward to pictures of you walking in the yard with your investor.

Thanks for visiting out bloggie!

I hope you get a new harness soon, so you can go outside and mark your territory. I'm not so sure about the eating grass and vomiting, though. Is that really fun?

Oh, we hope that you get your new harness very soon with the weather being so nice lately. We got a new harness today but it was already dark so we have to wait to go outside with it.

That's quite a list you've got there. Catsby got worn out just reading it. He's especially fond of the part about marking your territory. He loves to do that.

Mmmm...eating grass and puking! Sounds so bad, yet so good!
