Super Snooper (SS): It’s good to finally be back.
Kommando Kitty (KK): Yeah. Mom’s been sick so much this winter that she keeps putting off typing our article. It is nice having her around to sleep with, though.
SS: Particularly when she turns on that bed warmer thing.
KK: It’s really nice when she turns it on and goes away for a few minutes. We can lay on the warmest spot before she gets in bed.
SS: And she finally understands that it’s impossible to move both of us at the same time. The only bad thing is that they shut the door to downstairs down. So we have to find someone to let us up there.
KK: Dad keeps talking about how much it would cost to heat the upstairs as warm as the downstairs. He makes it sound like it’s warm downstairs.
SS: I know. We have to sleep together to keep from freezing. And we have fur!
Horatio Hedgehog (HH): What are you two yowling about now?
KK: How cold it is. Mom won’t even open the drapes sometimes. She says the old windows let cold air in. Why don’t they just buy new windows? Why should we have to suffer?
HH: It doesn’t feel very cold to me.
SS: That’s because your cage is heated!
HH: I come out to explore sometimes.
SS: Dad puts you on a heated blanket before you go anywhere!
HH: Maybe he just likes me better.
HH: Well, you know I am more popular. My introduction was the favorite story last year according to that report Mom got. (https://cat9984.wordpress.com/2014/02/08/horatio-hedgehog-intrepid-explorer )
KK: Yeah, we saw it. You were a couple of spots above the one talking about fake cheese (https://cat9984.wordpress.com/2013/10/24/cheez-whiz-love-it-or-hate-it )
HH: You’re just jealous. There is one problem with Mom being sick. Dad forgot to tell her that I was almost out of treats before she stayed home from work. No wax worms for days!
KK and SS: Awwww. Poor hedgie!
HH: Fine. I’ll just go back to my nice warm bed and sleep.
SS: Let’s go see if there’s any food left in the kitchen.
KK: OK. Then we can go back to sleep.

Gosh, that Horatio is adorable, sorry kitties! I can see why he got number one billing. And Mom? Hope you’re feeling better real soon.
Thank you. And Horatio is blushing.
Mom being sick throws off the whole household. Get well, Cat. You cats, stop your complaining. HH, you have it the best of ’em all, star boy. 🙂
Thank you. I ‘m convinced all cats think they are princesses who don’t get enough pampering.
Hahaha, that Horatio takes it all! The end of the age of cats! Feel well soon, okay? 🙂
