Yesterday Dad stayed home from work because he was feeling sick. I enjoy having someone stay home all day. It means lots of extra love for me. I now especially like it when Dad stays home. I got several treats throughout the day and we played a lot. Then, Mom came home late, so Dad fed me while we were waiting. Well he didn't realize that since Mom switched to buying the larger cans of food, I only get half a can for dinner... and he gave me a whole can!! Oh I was so happy. I ate and ate and ate. I still asked Mom for some food when she came home, but she didn't go for it. Oh well. I hope Dad stays home more often. Mom worked from home today, but she isn't as liberal with the treats, and she knows how much to feed me. I did a lot of begging today, but she's wise to me. I told her I'm a growing boy and need more food and she told me to grow into my big round belly first! I didn't think that was nice, but maybe she has a point. These pictures posted here today are from a few weeks ago, so you can't see my new belly so good. I have to get Mom to upload the more recent ones. But she was real busy helping me to update the blog today and get my links more in order, so I'll wait a few more days if I have to. We made some minor changes, but we're still not totally happy with it. Mom says we'll get there though.
I would like to ask you all a question about catnip now, and how you react to it. I have active "freak outs" (as my parents like to call them) on a daily basis already. The other day I was given some catnip to play with for a bit, but it didn't seem to make me nuts too much. I did act weird about half an hour later though as Mom and Dad caught me sitting in the middle of the floor just staring into space. And this morning after some catnip I was licking the couch. I'm just wondering how all of you react. I'm worried I'm not normal.
