It’s Petting-O’Clock Somewhere

[Today’s talking cat story is a guest post written by my son. The events below transpired last night after we had all gone to bed. If you like it, be sure to comment and let him know! — Kari]

Son: Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…

Sir Oliver: I desire petting. *walks into Son’s room* Oh. My servant is asleep. I shall wake him. *begins prodding son’s face*

Son: Zzzzzzzxxxnnxx *wakes up* Huh?

Sir Oliver: Oh, good, you are awake. I require a massage.

Son: Dude! It’s 11pm.

Sir Oliver: Time is a social construct invented by humans to avoid their responsibilities towards their feline overlords.

Son: Whatever. I’m going back to sleep.

Sir Oliver: This is outrageous. I will be filing a complaint with the Feline Overlords Union.

Son: Good luck with that. Zzzzzzzz.

Sir Oliver: Hmph. Just for that, I am going to leave a hairball right here where you will step in it when you wake up.

Third hand

Wordsworth: Hi Mama, whatcha doin?

Me: Putting on my shoes.

Wordsworth: Oh! Well you don’t need two hands for that. You could be petting me with at least one of those hands.

Me: Actually no, I really need both hands to tie my…

Wordsworth: *pushes face in between my hands*

Me: …shoelaces.

Wordsworth: *puppydog eyes*

Me: I guess I should get some slip-on shoes.

The Marauder’s Map of my Backyard (cartoon)

This is an arial representation of our backyard. It's huge.

To illustrate its size, this is our 140-pound dog, Emerson.

"This is our yard after the first big snowfall of the year."

"This is our yard two MONTHS later." (tiny area of footprints, only around the house)

"As you can see, Emerson is not very adventurous."

"This is how our yard looked two DAYS after Wordsworth came to live with us."

(Entire yard covered in footprints).

"To summarize, in the style of a popular book and film series:"

Wordsworth, wearing a collar and leash in Gryffindor colors: "I solemnly swear that I am up to no good."

Emerson, wearing Hufflepuff colors: "Mischief Managed."

Dogsplaining (cartoon)

Me: Hi Wordsworth!

Wordsworth: Hi Mama! You look different. Kind of smooth, like one of those cartoons the kids watch.

Me: That's because I *AM* a cartoon. So are you!

Wordsworth: Okaaayyyyyy... Why?

Me: Well, no that you're part of our family, you should be a part of my blog.

Wordsworth: Oh! I've never had a blog before. It sounds delicious!

Me: No sweetie, it's not a food. It's like telling a story to people all over the world.

Wordsworth: Even better! I'll get the leash!

Wordsworth: We're going to have to do a lot of walking if we're going to tell stories to the whole world!

Turnabout is fair play (with photos)

Emerson: Mama, may I be on the bed with you?

Me: Sure.

Wordsworth: Great idea! I’ll come up there with you too! Hey! This bed is kind of lumpy!

Emerson’s new friend (with photos and video)

This weekend we got adopted by a dog.

When we met him at the shelter, he kept going back to Ian. He liked everybody, but Ian was clearly his favorite, and he got along with Emerson too, which is obviously essential.

Mama Tries Something New

Emerson: What are you doing, Mama?

Me: Drawing cartoons.

Emerson: You really like drawing don’t you?

Me: Yes, I do. I especially like drawing animals. It makes me happy.

Emerson: Maybe you should draw pictures for other people too, so you can be happy drawing and they can be happy looking at cartoons of their own pets.
