Here we see Willie's brief moment of temptation (lapse in sanity) as he considers playing ball with Leah. Nothing good can ever come of that. And no. They never look each other directly in the eye. It's all part of their delicate paws de deux.
Who let a trained seal into our yard?
SPEAKING OF TEMPTATIONS, we got some! Our first EVER. Mosaic Lady underwent the torture that is Wal Mart yesterday and got us two kinds: turkey and chicken. She hasn't bought us stuff like this since Pounce was all the rage because it always came right back up on the rugs, all pink and gross. "If I wanted pink puke on the carpet I would've put it there myself!" blah blah blah blah. So we all gathered in the kitchen as soon as she got home and tried the turkey. Sadie ate hers so fast that Mosaic Lady was sure she was sitting on them. She did that three times in a row! Sadie can hoover up four turkey Temptations before you even have your hand back to yourself! (How many is too many? Mosaic Lady has portion control issues. Let us know how many we can eat before we puke so they don't get taken away again.)
Willie ate one and then got confused and disoriented, sort of sniffing around. HE CAN'T SEE THEM! Maybe he needs to borrow Daisy's Mommie's glasses.* Bianca could care less, which surprised us, but she's more of a Cheetos, string cheese and Chunky Monkey girl. The Dairy Queen. Next time we'll try the dairy blend flavor for her.
So that was the big deal at our house yesterday afternoon -- $2.50 "blown" to make us happy. Oh yeah...another $1.82 on some feather fishing pole toy that scared Sadie so badly she begged to go back outside. NO TENTS OR TUNNELS! "If I can't afford $40 for some guy to come mow the yards I'm not spending blah blah blah blah blah blah blah..." You know how they drone.
You don't know how bad we have it here! Be very grateful for all the things you guys get to eat, drive, ride in, grow, and play with!! We're living in some impoverished, third world, cat-as-chattle, oppressor nation around here. Why do you think we sit out Fashion Friday? Sadie and Bianca would be sporting burkas! (No offense intended for our Middle Eastern girl cat friends, of course.) Watch this space!!
*We kid the Daisy Mommie! Mosaic Lady started wearing reading glasses two years ago (at the very young age of 47) and already had to increase her strength. She pretty much wears them for everything close up now -- even shopping, cooking and emptying the dishwasher. She's bitter.
