The Insanity of Humans

Hello readers!

It's been a bit of a crazy week and I feel like
curling up and trying to ignore the world.

First off, the office humans went crazy.
When Mom took me into the office on Wednesday
it looked like this:

Mom said it was because they put in new carpet.
New carpet?
The old one was just how I liked it!
And exactly HOW does that justify all the furniture 
being out of place?

I spent a little time investigating the situation.
I even found the refrigerator in the lobby of all places!

I had seen enough!
I wanted to go back home where the furniture was
still in a perfectly sane arrangement.

A couple of days later Mom took me to the office again.
I admit that I was in no hurry to return to that madness.
Fortunately, sanity had once again returned.

The furniture wasn't exactly the same as before,
but much closer than it had been the other day!
I tried out a few spots to see how I liked the new arrangement.

It was tolerable, for the most part.

One thing I completely disapprove of is the new placement
of MY chairs.  They are NOT next to the exit closest to home.

I considered actually using the front door,
but after a peek, (and smell) outside, I thought better of it.

Then there was the matter of the smells inside the office.
The new carpet smells quite strange to my senses.
I'm also very wary of any 'underneath' places.
You never know what could be lurking.

That's why I always make Mom look under the bed for
monsters before I settle down to eat my food.
No, really.  I do.

At least the humans saw fit to save me some old and new carpet scraps.

Caturday came around and I got to spend some quality
time with Mom and Daddy as we went for a car ride.
I was content to stay in my traveling bag at first...

...but eventually my curious nature got the best of me.

Caturday night, however, I noticed Daddy packing a suitcase.
That's never a good sign!
Sure enough, bright and early Easter morning, Daddy left.
Mom says he has to go to work far away for this next week.
I'm really confused by this, because I thought Daddy's birthday 
was this week.

So here we are.
Mom and I.
Sure, Auntie and Uncle visited and so will the 
usual humans, but it's not the same without Daddy.

So I'm going to take every opportunity to curl up and ignore the world.

Unless Mom lets me go outside to the tasty plant...
...or maybe a nighttime recon.
Then maybe I'll acknowledge the world.

Of Mice and Neighbors

Well, I'm finally getting around to another blog post.

I've still been moody.
The weather's been all over the place.
Sun, wind, rain, sleet, name it, we've had it.
The whole thing has made me less than content.

It doesn't help that nothing seems to go my way.

I've moped about in every way possible.

Despite my moping, the weather hasn't settled where I want it.
It's persisted in being mostly wet.

All I can do is try to find comfort in the small things.

Still, Mom tried to keep me included in her daily routine.
I went with her and Happy Girl on a daytime recon.

I hung out with her in the office.
However, sometimes there where just too many humans.
The small human also came around quite a bit.
So I took matters into my own hands.

Well, what did you expect?
I wasn't about to stand my ground in my condition.
And by 'condition' I mean mood.

Standing my ground was better left to other times.
Like every night when I try to get Mom and Dad to let me 
go on a nighttime recon.

Or when I catch the scent of that mouse.

Then I stand my ground for as long as I can.

I usually mind the barrier of the fence...

...until the mouse just becomes to irresistible.

Then I give it my best shot!

Unfortunately, the grass is too dense and the mouse
burrowed too deep.

Still, day after day I took up my post.

If the mouse wasn't showing itself, I would go
over to see if Felix was available to hang out.

If he was, then I'd greet him and settle in
to keep watch over the neighborhood.

I was content sitting there by Felix's window.

Felix, on the other hand, wanted to play.

That was probably the highlight of my month.
The lowlight, if there is such a thing, came this last Friday.
Mom left the house super early with 
Facetious Human and stayed out ALL DAY.
I get depressed when Mom leaves me for an hour.
So, when she left for the entire day, I became 
overcome with melancholy.

When she finally saw fit to come home,
I didn't let her out of my sight.

I hope she's learned her lesson.
