The “Runaround”…….

Standard
I'll just stay inside and play all day......

Come on Mom! Let's play!

So, several days of rain, rain and more rain have me feeling not only water-logged but ready to play.  While Mom made coffee this morning I decided to shake things up a little bit and spent about two minutes running in a circle at top speed – from kitchen, through dining room, through foyer and a big slide on wood floors into the living room and continuing on this circuit while Mom giggled herself silly in the kitchen.   I then proceeded to run up two flights of stairs and immediately back down, finishing with a bit of a slide across the linoleum in the kitchen to my food dish wherein Mom had already deposited my morning meal!  I guess you might say I’d worked up an appetite by then so it worked out PERFECTLY.

While Mom sipped her coffee, and after I had about half my breakfast (I always save some for mid-morning snack) I ran back upstairs and went into Mom’s bedroom, hopped up on the bed and pestered Dad until he got up. 

It’s what I do…….this “household/human management” thing……After almost twelve years I pretty much have it fine-tuned but there’s always some tweaking needed.   I just happened to really luck out in the human department though – training my parents actually has been pretty easy.  Once in a while they slip up but…………THEY’RE ONLY HUMAN AFTER ALL………… 🙂

  1. Good morning, Sammy!
    Sounds like you have a bit of cabin fever. But at least you know how to use some of that pent-up energy: PLAYING!
    I do the same thing — run around the house and jump out at Mom as she walks down the hall. FUN!
    Have a good day.

  2. Hi Sundae………..Mom really liked your Mom’s blog this morning. She said it’s really fun getting to know people. Me – I prefer learning to MANAGE people. It sounds to me like you do a good job of that in your house too! So you like to surprise your Mom around corners too huh? It’s fun keeping them on their toes isn’t it…..:)

    Love

  3. Wish I had your energy this morning, Sammy, or any morning come to think of it, I know the animal world and pets in particular are pretty swift when it comes to training us humans.

    I know Zoe has me wrapped around her paw, that is for sure.

  4. Hmm……what a GREAT idea – a raise! I haven’t had one in twelve years so it’s high time I got one. I’ve also thought about being an instructor in People Management – lots of kittens need to know this stuff right from the start. Between getting a raise from Mom and Dad, and charging for the Kitty Kat Klasses, I might be a bazillionaire before ya know it……..Watch out Bill Gates!!! 🙂

    Thanks again Dee…….

  5. Yes, it definitely sounds like you have cabin fever or nervous energy, Sammy! Glad you have such a great big house to run around and play in. Your Mommy clearly adores you! Eddie (the JR), Simone (the collie) and Mattie (the foxhound)

  6. Hi gang! Yep – I was full of spunk this morning for sure……..I’m heading up to Mom’s bed right now though because I’m “all spunked out”…….you guys know what I’m talkin’ about – some days we just have to go, go, go and other days we take a day off and nap, nap, nap!

    Hugs

  7. Hi Pedro………you’re right – it IS hard work managing my “people” but of course it’s a labor of love. It’s amazing just how trainable humans are really – no doubt you’ve got yours in pretty good shape eh? However, having said that, I totally like “onedeservingcat” AND “onebusycat”……it’s not really being spoiled that’s got me to the lofty position of household manager here – it’s taken twelve years of HARD WORK! 🙂

    Happy First Day of Fall Pedro

    • Hi Isobel! Indeed the old guy still has some “get up and go” left because once in a while he simply can’t contain himself and off he goes. He has to satisfy the inner kitten I suppose from time to time which is fine by me because a good laugh is hard to come by some days!
