I love Goldie.

Foxy's Day:

5:30am - hear "awake noise" crawl off Mommy's head to sit on Daddy's chest.

6:00 - Watch Sports Center in bed with Daddy while getting head continuously rubbed.

6:30 - Stand on table and SCREAM for food.

7:00 - go out "cat window" to yard with Pablo. Hunt. Kills cute furry things.

7:30 - 5:00pm Sleep. Eat. Hunt. Use box. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.

5:00 - Mommy's Home! Scream for head rubs. Scream for food.

7:30 - Daddy's Home! Sit on Daddy's lap and get belly rubs, head rubs. Pablo might join in. Pablo smells like outside and Dead Things.Do this all evening. Occasionally switch to Mommy's lap.

11:00pm - Make self comfy on Mommy's head. Get annoyed when she kicks me off her head. Wait for snoring noise and then reposition self on head.

Goldie should try taking it easy. With that demanding schedule she's not going to have much time to slip in additional photo ops.

What about sniffing? She must be sniffing some, too. Very adorable.

Lucy said...

Oh someone said that already. How awkward. Well it must be very true.

I thought I'd quite lurking and leave a comment. I haven't done that in awhile.

I have 3 cats.

Puffalump stays inside almost all time.

Howler goes out in the morning, does heaven only knows what, and wont' come in until it's nearly dark

Annie, somewhere in between? If I'm home she's in and out of the cat door all day.

Ahh, the life of a well loved pet.

This almost sounds like Ramses' schedule only he only gets car rides to Grandpa and Grandma's house on the weekend. And he plays with their Candy. (And he doesn't like Grandpa to pet him. But he'll take the treats thankyouverymuch.)

She lives like a retired toddler. Awesome. I want some of what she has.

Elaine said...
