I Got Up Eary Today

The good things about being of the feline persuasion is that there are no alarm clocks, plenty of good places to curl up for a nap, and, of course, my owner and faithful servant, Jimmy.

As a former Texas hold-em dealer in Las Vegas, I assure you that you always play a good hand and fold a bad one. In my case, I've been dealt an ace in the hole and I play it to the limits.

Take today, for example. There was Jimmy, sleeping his life away at 5:30 this morning and I was up and ready for my breakfast. I gave him my best meow, which is roughly translated to "ahem." Do you think he got up? Noooooo !

So, the next step in the cat manual for training owners is to jump on the bed and lick his face. He woke up and man, was he pissed! By the time he got up mumbling, went to his litter box and then came to the kitchen to feed me, he was fine.

I ate my breakfast, returned to my kitty bed and went to sleep. For some reason, Jimmy stayed up saying some thing about a damned cat and that he couldn't go back to sleep. I looked around the house for the aforementioned "damned cat" and I didn't see one. I suppose the son-of-a-bitch left.

Well, that's all for now.

Stray tuned !

Hey Possum, I just found your journal on Indigo's journal and since I am a um, er, cat lover, I thought I would come see what the feline world was about from your prospective. I have laughed so hard at just the few entries you have that I don't know if I can continue reading your future entries without investing in some adult are a HOOT!

Hope to see a lot of you around here in Blogger Land.

Our Sheeba does the mew, mew, mew thing, vs. the licking. Every now and then he climbs into the window above our heads :o)

Possum, may I call you Possum? Sure, why not. Just put up with him. Owners have their own set of issues.
P.S.: My Pizza tells me she thinks you're cute.
