I haven't been a very good blogger lately. As happens to so many writers, I've been overcome with doubt and malaise, wondering whether I really have anything important or interesting to say. Are my napping habits really that riveting? But then I checked my e-mail and comments and learned I have fans!
One of my fans is Gracie, who sent this e-mail:
What an exciting life you must lead being able to take care of all of those interns! All I ever get to do is pretend to be jumping all over the floor as my human, Linda, swings a ribbon tied to a string tied to a stick. I let her think 'I'm thinking about killing a mouse but, I know it's just a ribbon tied to a string...Whatayougonnado?? You got to keep these humans happy... I have a older playmate here but, since I am the new kid on the block and she is eighteen years old, she ignores me every time I try to be friendly.I also have three dogs that I enjoy teasing as, they get in trouble if they even look like they want to kill me ! It's lots of fun ! I have a pink blanket I like to curl up on. I also like to sleep on the bed, on a shelf, on my human's favorite chair and especially, on top on the kitchen table when the sun is blaring from the window. My human's daughter, Sharon, works there at the capital with you and I know you must keep a careful eye on her as she is under the control of four of us felines. I know they must have a time keeping her on the straight and narrow ! Well Bob, it has been great talking to you and may I say I hope all of your ''temptations' are delicious ones!!
Your friend, Gracie"
She even sent me a photo!
Another one of my fans is Precious, who left some comments on my last post and said she liked my idea to have a state cat. I'm sorry I didn't see those sooner, Precious!
Precious was pretty worried about me and her human wrote to one of my reporter friends to make sure I was okay. Wasn't that nice? I like when humans do things like that. It makes me feel loved.
Precious is 3 years old and will be 4 in April. Here are some other things Precious' human said about her.
"She likes to ride in the car and goes to visit people, even a business in Aberdeen and sits on the counter. She has an electric train that she figured out how to work the remote, takes the keys off the laptop, helps cook, even has her own little netbook computer. She walks on a leash like a dog and sleeps on her own hot pad when it gets cold.
Precious also drinks white wine form the Westport Winery, only likes white......Bordello Blonde...."
Precious' human also said that when anyone buys a bottle of Westport Winery's Jetty Cat Red, some of the money goes to help homeless cats.
Thanks to Gracie and Precious for being my fans. It makes me very happy to know other cats enjoy my blog. I promise to keep writing for the rest of the legislative session.
