Some good things happened today.
I got to sleep under the bed until it got dark outside. I like it under there. It's dark, low to the ground, and I can always tell when someone is coming. This doesn't mean that the humans can't drag me out--which is a subject for another discussion entirely--but at least I know they're coming. It gives me an opportunity to get as far away as I can, so they frequently bang themselves in the process of dragging me out.
This is always a bonus.
But today, nobody even tried to mess with me. It was just me and Jasper until the food ran out, and then the humans came right home and refilled everything. They're usually not so prompt.
I also got a good combing when I came out to see everyone. I like that too. It's nice to get that excess hair out of there without having to eat it. I usually pretend to eat it, anyway. It confuses the humans when I do that. But what do they expect when they roll it into a little fluffy ball that bounces across the room with the least little tap? It's fun.
The other good thing today: my curly ribbon made an appearance. I got to play with it until I got bored with chasing it around the bed. She even got distracted for a little bit and let me chew on it for a while. It's been in the bag with the catnip, so it smelled and tasted great.
All in all, it was a pretty good day.
