Long, Long, Long Winter Blues

Mr Little Head talks too much so I'm trying to nap using the cake stand as a pillow.  He doesn't notice I'm trying to sleep.

 Mom is washing dishes again - she should wait until I'm napping somewhere else.  But I like her to clean my nap place lots and lots since I shed...a...lot.

 Sam sneaks into my nap spot when I use the one in the master bathroom for my afternoon nap.

Here he is... making Mom clean some more.  She cleans up a lot after us.  I think maybe we'll wear her down and she will let us outside for bit.

Diabetes Update and More Whinings

Butt on the end table checking to make sure it isn't HIS treat I'm eating!
 Sam, bless his little pea picking heart, and I are FINALLY getting into a routine of 3 glucose tests a day.  The trick?  Give him some canned food in a small bowl and tuck the bowl into a corner of the red chair.  Let him finish the treat and then, and only then, stab his ear!  
Wait! Is that the refrigerator I hear?

But the funny part is that Sam used to be a fairly quiet kitty.  Not any more.  He follows me into the kitchen all the time and he waits..  and watches.  If I go in the refrigerator, he starts howling for his can of food.  If he sees a spoon, he whines for his food.  If he is in another part of the house and hears the refrigerator door, he comes running and waits by his treat bowl.  And if it is time for a real treat (and the ear stab), he goes wild and stands up to grab the lower cabinet drawer.  And he just doesn't give up.  As I walk toward the red chair, he talks, and runs to the chair - even if all I'm doing is getting the stabber and the glucose meter ready.  He'll be all over the chair, jumping, and whining and jumping all over.  
And here he is taking a nap in the red chair.  I was sure he would never get back in the chair on his own.  But he naps there because it is Millie's favorite napping chair.  Sam also likes to get on top of the chair to preside over all the things that go on in the house.

Hey, that's MY chair !Moooom make him move!

What End of the World?

Having fun yet in this new year?

Ya know this is the year the world ends?  We don't care.  
There's lots of napping that MUST be done.

And more napping
 And yes, even more napping
Well, if SHE would get a quiet camera!

and plenty of time left for pestering Millie

Did Millie Really Party til She Dropped?

It's a new year and everyone should be on their best behavior.  At least try for a day or two?

Sam is napping through the New Year festivities. And let me tell you, it was so not festive at my house.  I stayed up only because I was playing a new game on my iPad.  And reading blogs every now and again.
Did Millie party till she dropped? 

OK, OK, I'll tell them the truth!  Millie was sooo tired after chasing the bird toy that she had to take an immediate nap - and protect her other toy at the same time.
