Whatever the meeting was about, it must have been important, because they were quite worked up about it. I participated by waking up, sitting bolt upright and shouting swear words. Which startled Julie, who was still awake and reading in bed.
Not long afterward, Sammy, our male cat, decided to have carnal knowledge of my feet. He got so excited he bit down on my toe, which was protected only by a thin blanket. I shot bolt upright again and swore at Sammy. He scrammed. I guess he doesn’t like dirty talk during sex.
So if I seem to be tired and cranky today, that’s why.
90+ degrees out, I was sitting in the room that gets the worst air conditioning coverage, and Sammy is very, very warm.
The first day we brought Minnie home as a scared little pup she hopped up in this chair and it has been her happy place ever since.
Submissive Dog, meet Alpha Cat.
Vivvie (cat): Ran and hid. I have not seen her except briefly when I got home.
Lucy (cat): Briefly let me pat her while she was sitting on top of the cat tree.
Sammy (cat): Demanded much petting, sat in my lap, only bit me once.
Minnie: Picked her up at the dog boarders. She seemed skinny and subdued. I wonder if she’s been eating. She was shy around me. She perked up when she got home and picked up a couple of her favorite toys and trotted around the yard with them. She was happy to see Sammy. Now she’s asleep on the sofa next to me, emitting contented dog noises and twitching occasionally and slightly in her dreams. I have read that dogs are often exhausted after daycare and boarding. We’ll see how she seems tomorrow.
As for the gadgets:
Internet suffered an outage tonight. I fixed it by unplugging the Powerline Wi-Fi adapter and plugging it back in again. Roku remote stopped working for no apparent reason at all. I had to unplug the Roku to get it to shut up. Dead batteries?
I am ded to the world, having been up since 5 am PDT and traveling 13 hours of that time. Back to work tomorrow morning. And so to walk dog, change cats’ water dishes, and bed.
To Sammy, toilet paper is evil deliciousness.
