Hi, Blackie here! As you can see, we are loving our new home. I really love to relax and hang out on the couch! Here are more photos of us that mommy took when we first came to live with them.
One of the things we hate about living here is that mommy won't let us into the bedroom. She is "allergic" to us, whatever that means, but she takes "medication" to help so she isn't too sick. She has to make sure we don't spread all our furs all over the bedroom where they sleep. The comfy blankets on the sofa helps too. She cleans that in the white machine every few days to keep her "allergies" from coming back.
She also won't let us into the room with all the neat things inside - looks like kitchen stuff so she can cook us some food. Lots of can stuff too.
After breakfast mom or dad lets us out into what they call the "patio room". It's like being outside, but there is glass walls all around us so we can't get out. But we can watch the birds and look at all the plants outside. We love it out here, especially on warm days. Bob always takes the grey lounge chair (it has a Eddie Bauer thing on it) and I explore the room and hunt for birds. So far I have not gotten any birds. I can't get outside to hunt them. but I can pretend.
Mommy and Daddy won't let us eat people food. We did try though. Bob tried to eat mommy's banana one day. She thought that was funny and laughed. Bob didn't get any.
At night we like to lay on the couch with Mommy and Daddy. I like to hang out with Bob, but lately Bob doesnt' seem to care about me anymore. So I hang out by myself or I will hang out with mom. Or Dad. Bob keeps trying to steal my chair though. We fight all the time over that chair!
I have a favorite toy. It's my stick with a string on it. I can chase it all day long. but mommy doesn't always like to play. She says she's too busy. She also gave us some soft balls to chase, but those are usually boring. One makes a lot of noise though. Sometimes i like to hit it to see how far it goes. If i want to play, though, i will carry the stick in my mouth and bring it to mommy.
I don't like people touching me too much, but mommy found out that i liked to be brushed! that is so cool. i purr and purr when she combs me, and then i get all weird on her. She thinks it's funny. I also like to be roughed up. Yeah, i'm a big boy, and i likes it rough!
Sometimes when i want something, I will bang on a door. I thought they would open the door for me if I do this, but they always ignore me. I don't like that, but I usually give up after a few minutes.
Oh, I can open doors! but Mommy doesn't like that very much. She gets mad at me if i try to open a door. One time i jumped up so high i almost opened up the closet door with my feet! Mommy just laughed.
Ok, i have to go now.
