Moving Forward!

Well, I caught you all up on what I was doing while I was "away," but didn't keep you up to date on the current happenings! Ugh! I just may never catch up! So, instead, i will just start from here.

I have a new habit that is driving my parents crazy! They have done so much work on getting me to accept and follow rules and talk about how much I have improved and how great I am doing. So, just to keep them on their toes, I decided to start something new. Whining. Yup! The squeaky, nails-on-a-chalk-board kinda whine that drives people nuts! My favorite time to do it is early on sleep in days. Saturdays are the best (since it is the only real sleep in day they have). You see, the cats and I like to be fed, but when they sleep in, we get fed late. That's a problem for us. So, about the time the alarm normally goes off, I'll throw in a whiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnne. Then another and another.

It's a hard one for them to fix - they don't want to get out of bed and come over to me. They could try to use a squirt bottle on me - I say bring it on! I LOVE getting a squirt of water! I also LOVE being in control. My whining gives me just a little bit of that. If they come to me, they touch me and that makes me happy. If they don't come over to me, I keep on whining. Either way, it's a win-win situation for me and a lose-lose for them. It really is great fun to see Mom's frustration with it. The best was when I decided I needed to get up with Dad at 4:15 AM on Friday. Ha! Take that for not filling my belly when I'm clearly wasting away and about to die of hunger.

Mom's on to me though - I feel her new fix coming and I don't think I'm going to like it. So, I'll have to come up with something new!

Speaking of hunger - I just realized that my dinner is late! Gotta get my whiner primed and working! BELLY EMPTY! STARVING! ABOUT TO KEEL OVER FROM HUNGER!

Love and Licks,

Poppy, you are a little too smart for your own good! Sounds like Mom and Dad need some good ear plugs. We want to know about the plan Mom's got up her sleeve--she's got lots of tricks up there!
