Guy Time: Day One

Standard

SHE’S GONE!!   Yep – in spite of my best “poor pitiful me” cry and look she took her overnight bag (well, two overnights but who’s counting except me?) and hopped in her car and off she went.  Sniff.  I tried – I really did – but she wouldn’t be swayed.  Even by this:

Sam Saying HI To The Camera

Poor pitiful me….and I’m saying it with my eyes AND my voice!

So Dad and I are gonna make the best of it…….there will be lots of burping and watching of guy stuff on TV (like my Dad’s overly extensive collection of flying and train videos) and other manly stuff.  Yep – no girls though – I promised Mom there would be none of that.  We’re just gonna hang and have quality time together.

Sam and His Dad Playing on the Rug

Playing on the floor….

LUV football - Super bowl, regular season - doesn't matter to me!

Football !

I’ll also be pitiful enough that he takes me outside for a stroll several times over the days Mom’s gone – and when it comes to treats?  Well, I’ll make sure he knows I get LOTS of those from Mom and he’d better try to beat her at that…..(hee hee).

Sam On His Cookie Rug

I get my cookies on a floor mat by my Dad’s chair.

So I will be VERY busy while Mom’s gone and that will make the time just FLY…….right?  However, I will miss Mom’s lap and while I’m SURE my Dad would be thrilled if I popped up on his legs for a snooze while Mom’s gone, experience has shown me that it’s just NOT THE SAME………he’s wiggly and gets up every five minutes for something or another………nope – when it comes to laps, there’s NOTHING like a Mom!!

Happy Friday Everybody!

Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  1. I agree Sammy. There is nothing like a mum’s lap!!! Nice and soft and warm. I have my human uncle staying here and he gives me lots of scritches and even feeds me when mum forgets (how could she???). Anyways, I hope your mom has a triff and brill time and comes back with lots of treats for you, ya know, to make up for the neglect! mol 😉

    • Hi Fozziemum! I was a VERY good boy. Mom got home a little while ago and Dad didn’t have to give her any negative reports about me (of course). She brought me a bag of treats to try but I spit them out – ICK. Other kitties love them – “Greenies” – but not me…..I’m a most particular guy I guess. Oh well – she’s promised not to go away without me again until she and Dad take a mini-vacation but I will get to go to kitty camp so that’s not too bad. I guess.

Yep – my house is now complete with Mom home……and this morning I even got bacon as an extra treat since we don’t USUALLY get it on Mondays! WOOT!

  4. We all know no one can take our Mommy’s place even Dad, football, extra treats and lots of outdoor time. But, remember that Dad is missing Mom, too!! You’ll both have to give her lots of loving and hugs when she gets home!

    • HA HA Easy! Funny you would say that though – my Dad TRIED to get me to pop up on his lap but I wouldn’t…..he got the blanket Mom uses over her legs when I’m on the recliner with her and put it over HIS legs but it WASN’T THE SAME!!!!! The first day WAS awful and the second was also awful but now that it’s Sunday afternoon and Mom’s home – EVERYTHING IS BEAUTIFUL!!!!!

    • Hi Flynn! Know what? I did have lots of man time with my Old Dad while Mom was gone but it just wasn’t the same when it came to nap time. No soft laps – no warm blankies – just Dad’s bony old legs! However, at least he DID remember to make bacon for breakfast Saturday and Sunday….so I didn’t suffer TOOOOOO much!

  11. Sammy, we’re not supposed to tell, but our humans left us on Wednesday and are not coming back until next Friday. That will already be October. Mom put one of those calming collars on Mauricio and plugged a new Feliway thingy into one of the kitchen plugs. We don’t expect either of those things will keep him from being a pain in our a****. So buck up Sam. You do at least have your dad. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
