Bob started having to go to work at 6:30 instead of 8:30. He has been doing it for a couple of days now, but I can tell he is not used to it. He looks kind of like a zombie and I keep expecting him to start walking around saying; "Brains!"
(from Bob) Of course it might help if I went to bed earlier, since I have to wake up earlier, but then I would have no time for Monika and the kitties. (Reaches for more coffee.)

I smell catnip and I can't find where it is hiding. I keep thinking I smell it when I am in the hall by the computer room, but when I sniff around the floor I don't smell it.
Monika just showed me where it is. Bob put catnip spray on the mouse that is hanging from the balloon. No wonder I couldn't find it. Now if I can just build up the courage to try to take it from the balloon.

This morning I got up onto the bed trying to get Bob to give me some attentions. I got between his and Monika's heads and pawed lightly at his shoulder. Normally he just reaches up and pets me a little and then goes back to sleep, but today he lifted the covers and pulled me down next to him. I don't usually like being under the covers when there are humans there, but he held me loosely and gave me bunches of soft pets so I calmed down and laid between them. After about 10 minutes I got nervous again though so he let me go back to my night time patrols.

King Obsidian here;
Yesterday was Bob's birthday and someone from his work gave him a big balloon with a long string and a heavy star that pulled it down towards the floor. When he got home he took it into the computer room and put the star on the floor to see what us kitties would do with it.
Being the master hunter that I am, I went right after it and I chewed through the string. The balloon floated up to the ceiling and the the current from the A/C blew it to the corner over the printer stand so I couldn't get to it easily. Then Bob brought it to the hallway outside the computer room and tied my bug toy to it, but he must have wanted it to float in the air with the balloon because he switched it for a small toy mouse and put that on it. Then I killed that mouse, so Monika put a different mouse with a feather tail onto it. I played with that one a little, but then I decided that it was time to go to sleep, so I went into the bedroom and jumped up onto the body pillow for my nap.
ps; I'll be back at that mouse later today

This morning, when Bob laid his work clothes on the bed before going to shave and wash up, I climbed up and laid on his pants to make sure that he would have my sent with him today, and that he would have to give me attentions before he could put them on. He gave me some attentions right away, before going into the bathroom, and then when he was done, he gave me some more. Last thing he did was rolled me onto my back and off the pants, and then he gave me belly rubs. Then he picked up his pants and let me go at the same time.

This morning, when Bob was giving us our teats, we weren't all in the computer room. He gave Queen Munchkin, King Obsidian and me ours first as we were there. Then he went out into the hall to give Princess Boots hers, and while she was eating them he poured more into his hand for Princess Ashlyn. By that time I had finished eating my treats, so I sneaked up and sat handsomely behind Princess Boots and said I'm ready for my treats. Bob just laughed and said that I already had mine and that the treats in his hand were for Princess Ashlyn. Humans are too smart some times.

This morning Queen Munchkin and I both helped Bob DJ. She was laying in his lap pawing at his left hand for attentions, and I was sitting on his desk pawing at his right hand and blocking the mouse. I think that between us we did a pretty good job. Then the modem decided to join the fun and it completely threw him off the internet in the middle of his show. He had to reboot everything to get back to broadcasting. I didn't know that modems could be snarky too.

Princess Ashlyn here;
This morning Bob was giving me my pets while I was eating my treats and all of a sudden there was a scary noise and I about jumped out of my skin. Bob caught me and gave me cuddles until I calmed down. He said something about that mean old TV scaring me with a chainsaw sound. I don't know about that, but I am glad he was still here to give me cuddles while I was scared.

This morning I was laying at the foot of the bed when Bob got up, and I went to jump down but the laundry bin was in the way so I had to make sure I wouldn't knock it over or fall into it. I was sitting there studying it to figure out how to jump when all of a sudden Bob snuck up behind me and poked both sides of my butt at once. I was so surprised, that I jumped over the laundry and into the doorway.

Humans are funny some times! This morning Monika picked me up and brought me into the bedroom, then laid back on the bed holding me with my belly up. Bob came in after her and tickled my belly while saying; "Belly belly belly belly belly. Then he switched to Monika's belly and did the same thing. She almost jumped off the bed.

This morning I jumped onto the bed when Bob was putting his socks on and he stopped to give me bunches of cuddles and pets. I acted like I was trying to get away at first, but I was enjoying the pets too much, so I just laid still and started purring.

In stead of getting on Bob's desk to get him to help me read the blogs today, I got on the corner of Monika's desk and read over his shoulder. I think I like blogging from here better because he can turn around and give me hugs and cuddles without his desk drawer getting in the way.
