Not Too Much To Tell


It's Grover.

Listen, here is a list of things that have been happening in my house:

1) The other day, Piggy licked the microplane my mom had used to grate sharp provolone and he made a tiny nick in his tongue. He's OK now, but can you say "IDIOT"? I wanted to, but I'm much too dignified to say such a thing aloud. I did repeat it numerous times in my head though.

2) I have been sleeping by Piggy more. Mostly, I'm doing it to upset Vito because if I am against Piggy, he cannot be and then he sits a bit away from us and gets this very forlorn look on his face (because he misses his BFF) and his left ear goes back like it does when he's amuses me. OK, now that I just told you that I feel like a bit of a jack-ass. OK, does it make it any better that I now let Vito come near me sometimes without swatting him hard with my paw? And, sometimes, I let him sit on the stove-top with me, mostly so that we both get yelled at to get off and squirted with Mr. Black (the squirt bottle), because why should I be the only one who suffers?

3) I have an upper respiratory infection. I think Piggy gave me Swine Flu.

4) I am enjoying licking this from my mom's finger. It's supposed to help with my infection, and it seems to be.

5) I have decided that even though my mom does horrible things to me, like not let me live in the cabinet anymore and yell at me when I poop outside the litter box, I am really the favorite. That's because I am the one who most often gets to sit on her lap when she is at the computer, like right now. Only the favorite cat would be able to do that. Also, I am the only one who gets to lick that stuff from her finger. Also, I am the only black, woolly cat in the household. Also, I am wee.

The end.

Grover, of course it is very clear you must be the favorite one! Your black wooliness makes you extra special. Definitely.

Grover, we have to agree, it really does looks a lot like you're the favourite. It nice that you're hanging out with Piggy and Vito - in fact we think you even like hanging out with your brothers, even if you won't admit it. Hope you get completely over that nasty bug soon,

Glad to hear from you Grover. And not at all surprised that you are the favorite.

Why do you guys with wool think you're so great?
I mean it's different looking and all, but it doesn't mean you are NECESSARILY the favorite. Or the lap thing, either.

Today I jumped across the room onto a very high shelf. Mom had to get me down. I guess THAT makes me her favorite.

PS You are cute tho'

I am not surprised that you are the favorite, Grover. You are certainly special with your black wool. I hope that Piggy is all over his cut tongue. Not a smart move, Piggy. It is really nice of you to be closer to your brothers, Grover.

Grover, I think you are mellowing and seeing the foibles of your snarky ways...well, maybe it's the L-Lysine that is making you more Zen-like? You know, you could share that tasty stuff...well, no, that would be asking a bit too much, too soon...keep on snugglin' though

Of course you're the favorite, Grover. I never had a doubt. I love reading your blog entries. We just think so much alike. And we both, of course, have the cute thing going on.
