So I'm getting the cat food into the dishes and calling for my little darlings to come and have dinner. My female Meme (short for Princess Mini Me) has informed me that she is hungry and is waiting rather impatiently for me to finish with the dishes. My boys, Marcus and Tucker are nowhere to be seen, so I start calling for them. Marcus is quick to respond. He is after all still a kitten and always hungry. But Tucker is not showing. I'm calling to him in that mommy voice that you use when your child is annoying you and you are trying very hard not to lose your temper. The cats know that they cannot eat without him. There is no excuse for being late for dinner, not even for them. Meanwhile Meme has apparently lost her patience, she turns the corner by the refrigerator and stops with her back feet still in the kitchen and in the same mommy is getting annoyed voice she calls out "Tucker". I can almost here the name in her attempt to mimic me. Certainly Tucker heard the tone of voice if nothing else because he came staggering out of the bedroom almost immediately.
On a side note Meme usually greats Tucker, who is handicapped with a reassuring snuggle to his face. On this occassion she glared and simply turned back into the kitchen to look at me expectently. She had done her job and gotten the slowpoke into the room, now feed me! Ahh, life with cats, never a dull moment especially when you have one that is so intelligent that it's truly scary at times.
So our family has decided that we're having Christmas on January 5th. There will be no dinner, we will all be dinnered out. We're having snacks and drinks. We also drew names. I got my niece Cindy, she has a book here on this website. She's a darling girl and it was fun getting her a gift. I won't tell you here what I got for her just in case she reads my blog which I'm not sure that she does, but to be safe. I dont knoe who got my name but I'm hoping for the schiznit copy of Prometheus.
Okay I have to sign off, Marcus is sitting on one of my arms and I'm a 10 key typist, I'm horrible at hen pecking.
Be good to each other.
