"Psst! Mom! Wake up."  (Walks over inert body in the bed.)

"I mean it. Mom! Wake up! Now!!! (Examines sleeping head closely. Prods nose for reaction.)

"Ahh, there you are. Good morning. It's me, Mica. No, I don't know where Petey is - it's so darn hot in here he's probably on the couch, trying to catch a breeze from our rotten air conditioner.

"Anyhow, remember how you were thinking that maybe Mondays could be all mine? Mica Mondays, like the wheelies have Wheelie Wednesday. Well, I thought it was a splendid idea. 

"It's Monday, now, right? So I can start blogging right?"

"Nah, you don't have to look at the clock. But it does show that it's now Monday, right? And while you don't have to get up early because you work from home, you don't mind opening a new fresh can of Fancy Feast while you're up, do you you Mom? 

"Because you are up now, right? Even though you have to use those dumb sticks to hobble around and get my food, right?

And while you're up, could you turn on the computer for me and log on to Petey's blog page so I can get started?" 

"I mean, really Mom, is that asking too much? At least I waited for awhile, I've up since 5:00, playing hockey puck with the things on your dresser."

"Shhh, now that you're up, could you try not to crash into anything with those sticks? Petey's complaining that his head hurts. Something about 'too many of Lacie's smoothies' and how he never knew what a 'party animal' was until he went to Snicker's Birthday Bash! Thank heavens his pals Jackson and Eric got him on the last flight out of Iowa on Air Ruby. He doesn't remember a thing after Asta suggested everyone go for a midnight skinny dip. 

"I've given him two Muttrin and he's just going to sleep it off. He said something about asking Lacie for some 'hair of the dog,' and from what we've seen on her blog, she's got plenty to go around!"

"Ahh, now that my first post is complete, Petey's been taken care of and Mommy's FINALLY awake, I think I'll take a nice 15-hour nap until supper time rolls around."

Hey Mica,
Tell Petey when he wakes up that we're glad he had such a fun time at our pawty. Too bad he drank so many smoothies though, tee hee. We didn't realize what breed of cat you were til just now. Mama & Papa almost got to adopt a cat just like you & a Somali cat. They live together. But the lady is keeping them for now, bummer.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

Hey Mica, I don't usually bark at cats but if you're a pal of Petey's I guess you're OK. I like to wake J1 up at that time EVERY SINGLE DAY, hehehe! Tell Petey that hair of the dog is the very best thing to cure what ails him. Chin chin! J x

Hi Mica! I was delighted to see your post. I totally approved of Mica Mondays and look forward to lots of great writing and photos!

Hi Petey! It's really nice of you to give Mica a day in the week! You're obviously a great brother.


Eric said...

I's whispering this Petey so not to hurt your head...Mica you are one cute Kittie. You look a bit like my bro' but browner...and strange this ,but he too bashes things around on the 2 leggededs bedroom dresser at 5 in the morning then sleeps for countless hours once he's got every one up. You two must surely be related??? Though my Otis will not be blogging. Not even Otis on a 'orrible Monday Morning.... though I think Mica Mondays are a splendid idea.. see you next week.
Wags, Eric x x x x

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Oh my Mica...did Petey not invite you to the pawty? Um...all kitties are welcome, of might have been there, but for some reason my recollection of the nights events are a tad hazy.

OK...Petey does NOT need any dog dawgness, NO. He needs lotsa and lotsa fluids...NO ADDITIVES. Give him a big bowl of water and later some chicken soup if he wants it. I suggest he takes the Muttrin as directed and take several long nappies today. I tried to get him to use moderation, but he is a rather tenacious terrier. Those peaches he brought made the best smoothies!

So glad ur gonna be postin' on Mondays, sweet Mica...ur a very attractive kitty!!!

Barkin' at ya...

Lorenza said...

Hi, Mica!
Now Petey knows how is to party with the DWB!
I am not so sure your Mom appreciates you wake her up at that time in the morning!
How is her foot?
I hope you and Petey are taking good care of her!
Kisses and hugs

I just got a check for $500.

Sometimes people don't believe me when I tell them about how much you can get by taking paid surveys online...

So I show them a video of myself actually getting paid over $500 for doing paid surveys.
