I made mention recently on the difficulty to blog. Sometimes it's lack of inspiration. Sometimes it's just laziness. I can blame work. Other times it's me wanting to be out there in the wild living my future blogs. And a lot of the times it's our cats Merry and Molly.
They sure have grown since that photo was taken. Almost 7 months old now. They were spayed a couple weeks ago. Time sure does fly.
They are a handful. Neither of us ever had 2 kittens before. I recall the days with Meadow as a wee little kitty, it was just her and I. I had just moved into this house. So being single and a bachelor with few things to my name, the house was pretty empty. There wasn't much for Meadow to get into. No computer. No cable. No land line. No wires to play with, no things to get behind. It also meant that all my time at home was just Meadow and I in the early days. I told Angie I was her whole world (so true). Without the distractions, it did mean a lot of bonding time between her and I. I'd be playing with her for hours before and after work. I remember so many nights, us up till 3 or 4am, throwing things around the kitchen, cranking some Ramones and that was life here.
Now the house is "fuller" with Angie and I together. We have all those things I did not years ago. And we have Merry and Molly.
So, trying to blog with one eye and ear open to the house is distracting. Always listening for bumps and thumps, wondering what they are getting into, what they may trot into the kitchen with. And if they aren't elsewhere in the house, they are right here at the computer with me. I know Angie experiences these same "pains"... lack of a better word.
The photos below give you an idea of what it's like to blog with our 2 little girls.
Merry is a real lap cat especially come computer time.
Molly has an obsession with the computer screen and the moving cursor.
Molly catches the mouse, doesn't know what to do with it so she "sleeps on it". *wink wink*
I can deal with this scenario. I have to put a "stinky" work shirt on the desk and Merry will use it instead of my lap.
They love the computer chair so I wonder if the "let's bug the heck out of our human" is their clever way of getting the chair back?
Young cats are insane. I know we need to embrace their playfulness because before we know it, they will be just lazy old cats. But after a long day at work, the nuttiness can be a little too much, and too extended. A line from Danny Glover in Lethal Weapon sums it up perfectly...
So if you are ever wondering where that next blog of mine is, this may be why. A draft could be sitting here until I get the next peaceful moment.
