He's just jealous!

Don't be mad at Mica! He's just got his fur rubbed the wrong way and started in on the Catmospolitans, and you know you should never drink and blog (especially when you only weigh 8 pounds).  It's been a rough week for him—first I got my very own blog. Then last night he just found out that next week, Mommy's going away for four days to go to a wedding. He's going to stay home and be visited by our very nice Pet Nanny Barbara who will give him lots of cuddles. But I get to go stay for FOUR WHOLE DAYS with...

Can you just imagine the fun we're going to have? She has a really long slippy hallway that's great for sliding down when you're going after a tennis ball! And lots of nice chairs to bounce off of when we're racing around! And her Mommi and Daddi don't even snarl when I jump up on the nice chaise longue for a rest inbetween races! I just know I'm gonna have the bestest time.

So when I heard the news, I had to start packing immediately.

I just hope I packed enough tennis balls. We can go through a good dozen a day! I am so excited because Asta's Mommi and Daddi are almost as much fun as she is—don't they make a nice trio?

Anyhow, Mica's now sleeping off his bender from last night. (He did a bit of late night Cat-alog shopping as well. Where are we going to put 250 pounds of frozen salmon treats???) He's really a very nice cat and we sleep next to each other on the bed. He never tries to play with my toys, only sniff at them, and he's very polite when I have friends over. He doesn't even hold it against me when I say "Hey! Wanna see what my cat will do?" He's very good-natured about letting me chase him around the apartment when I want to show off for other doggies. I think he just gets a bit embarrassed that his bestest four-legged friend is a dog. He's old school, you know?

Well, today is going to be a steamy one, so I've just slipped on my Speedo and we're off for some swimming at the run. I have a feeling I'm in for some short walks over the next four days of this heatwave. I hate the heat and sometimes just have to lie down for a few minutes in the middle of the sidewalk before I can continue. (I can be very dramatic sometimes.)

Have fun, stay cool, and don't hog the puppy pool!!!

Your pal,

You admit that you own a speedo??! I have GOT to see a photo of that. C'mon, man! Whip it out for us so we can see you sportin' it. I bet you can make even a speedo look dogly.

Have fun with Astaroni! She's the cutest and best fuzzy-butted wiregirl EVER!
