Tonight Nathaniel went "catting for fish" - or something like that. We're still trying to work it out. Regardless, fun was had. And the kitty enjoyed it too!
There's just something so fun about watching the Mini Monster stalk the fish
Go after her "mouse" (Tabbitha's old toy, which the House Monster has since relinquished to Mini Monster. Tabbitha thinks that she's too "grown up" to play with her mouse. She's moved onto the green faux tail. What a big girl!)
And "pop out" from behind the pile of bike clothes on...The Ugly Green Recliner. Cue scary music.
Yes, the thing still exists. And it has now made the voyage from Wisconsin to North Carolina, NC to Florida, and FL to California. I'm starting to think we won't be able to EVER get rid of it. The other three members of our family would simply not allow it.
Well - maybe Tabbitha would be okay with no recliner. It seems that she's found another spot.
Easier to "prop" herself up, I suppose.
And when she tires of that, she can always fall back to the sink.
Yeah - she really loves that spot.
And now - now I've completely forgotten what I was going to write about. Something about having fun and living life like a cat? No - that doesn't sound right. Because then you'd spend 18+ hours per day sleeping and wash yourself with your tongue. And that's just bad - on both counts (if you're not a kitty).
But kitties are super relaxed, generally have a good time, and - as long as they're fed - are on their "best" behavior. (Although we still tell our friends and family to beware of Tabbitha and her attack antics).
Other things? You may notice that I have pink pedals. And pink detail on my bike. I blame Jennifer Harrison - as my coach and friend, she's got quite the influence. But as long as you're going for one (detail), you might as well add another (pedals). Toss in the pink seat - and I've got the troika of pink-ness on my bike.
Too much you say?
I think not. Besides - spotting my bike in transition will be super easy. I'll be the only one out there with the pink seat. Super!
In the end, Nathaniel's kitty got away. She caught the fish, nabbed the mouse, and is now well on her way to harassing the House Monster.
No - she's actually "hiding" on the recliner.
As for the House Monster? Apparently her position from a few days ago has since been abandoned for this:
This is just so wrong on so many different levels. But she's the House Monster. What else can I say?
