Since my kitties are hairless, they are always looking for warm spots to sleep. They were laying on my cable receiver for the last year. I’m always nervous one is going to be sick on it, so I figured out a way to keep them off – so I thought. I have my audio receiver on the bottom, and over that is a wire shelf which holds my cable receiver. How in the world naughty little Pinky ever got up on it in that configuration is completely beyond me:
Looks really comfy too! What a dork.
Sticking with the naughty theme, my oldest sphynx is a five pound bully. She’s also the sweetest cat I’ve ever known – most of the time. Whenever another kitty gets all snuggly and warms up a spot, Mya will sometime walk on them until they move and surrender their spot to her. Sometimes she goes a little too far and bites them on the bum. She was doing that to little Abby (who is bigger than her) while she was on the bed. I Mya-proofed Abby by turning her into an Abburito:
Worked like a charm. Mya just sat there and sulked for a few minutes, then found her own spot.
Third naughty kitty would be Boo. I had a kitchen cupboard open for seconds while I turned my back:
I had Mike sit down with her and give her a little talking to:
Looks like the only good cat was Abby. Paws crossed it lasts.
We had some pretty decent storms over the last week. I love being up on the tenth floor, facing both West and North. The view is awesome:
You know what else is awesome? My fish. Check out little McMortimer:
Hey Boo – don’t even think about it!
I had the day off yesterday, and since I’m finally feeling better, I went over to my little mother’s house to help sort things in the basement. Every time we clean it out, we get rid of a fair amount of stuff and can never imagine being able to get rid of much more in the future. Well, yet another big pile cleared out yesterday. Her basement is starting to look very bare. One of the things I did come across (and toss) was this nifty drum I made in high school for a project:
I have no idea why I painted it like that. I even did the center portion with pipes, sewer system (with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), a subway and the flames of hell:
Maybe my mother was right all these years – I think I am a tad weird.
This weekend, the plans are to fly Mike and I to a BBQ fly-in at the Huron Park Airport tomorrow. Then maybe we’ll come back to my place and watch some movies or something. Hopefully if we have a snack, Mike with think twice about getting crumbs all over himself like last time. Thank goodness for vacuums:
I thought I was going to need it again last night to suck up the body of the huge fly my cats were supposed to kill. They were having too much fun playing with it though – it went on for almost an hour. Poor fly must have been exhausted:
It eventually made it out to the balcony so I sorta shushed it down the crack to the next floor. I’m sure it flew away before it hit.
Today’s symptoms: FINALLY feeling better. Yea! I actually made it through a full day of work with not much more than my usual fatigue, a fairly bad headache and some minor aches and pains. Life is good!
