Daily Disappointments #4, now with Bonus!

Wouldn't you think that as I go to great lengths to place myself oh-so-conveniently at the Human's side, that she *might* reach for the brushie as I request, and welcome my comforting presence as she begins to do her shudder-inducing tax stuff? Wouldn't you think I would provide a pleasant distraction from all that misery?

I mean, that's what *I* thought. But did she even open the drawer where the brushie is kept to offer me some affection? 

Well, I think you all see where this is going. Thankfully, we do have a little Bonus today!



So here are our Friendly Fill-In responses for last Friday (yes, we *do* know it's Monday now--not the Kitty's fault), courtesy of our furiends at 15 & Meowing and Four Legged Furballs:

1. & 2.  Superbowl Sunday bores me.
3. If you have feline DNA, you have everything.
4. My skill set could get me a job at the Blood Bank.

Oh Spitty - you're a born marketer. I look forward to your posts in this Daily Disappointments series, and now you're delivering them with a bonus! I accept that the Superbowl might be boring for you. Can I suggest that you switch over to cable TV and watch some Australian Rules Football. It's a wonderful game - so much faster and more skillful than gridiron. The women's season opened last weekend; the men's season doesn't open for another 6 weeks or so, so if you start watching now, you'll only be able to see the women playing. Their games tend to me conducted at a slower pace and are less spectacular to watch than the men's games, but nevertheless, are still worthwhile.

As for your Human: I think you probably needed to sit on her keyboard to attract her attention. You were too polite!

You are looking a bit ruffled, Spitty. I feel for you!

I know how you feel, Spitty! I was at my human's desk earlier, and it was obvious that I wanted one of my sparkle balls to play fetch. There weren't any in the desk drawer, but do you think she actually hunted one down? Of course not!

Ah, to be denied a good brushing... Cruel, cruel world.

Spitty, remember when you started advertising for a new human to care for you? Looks like you may want to dust off some of that work; obviously, you need MORE ATTENTION!

Spitty, those are some mighty terrific fill-ins. Couldn't agree more. Well, when humans get involved with that tax stuff, they get crazy are lose their heads. If your mom opens the drawer where your brush is, we suggest you get it out yourself and drop it on her keyboard. Misty May is sending lots of hugs and purrs but no kisses. She's been sick and doesn't want to get you sick like she did Sawyer. She's not getting better after trying three different meds. We have lots of new meds to try now. She is super congested in her head and sneezing constantly. She's had problems with this since she was a kitten, but this is the worst. Anyhoo, wishing you a terrific week. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

Spitty, we think she should be worrying about you at the moment. The tax stuff can wait for a little while longer. Thanks for sharing your friendly fill-in answers. Have a wonderful rest of your week.

We bet if you shed some fur that just *happened* to get up her nose, she'd get to it.

Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. My first 2 were similar. And your #4 cracked me up. XO

Cathy Keisha said...

You aces 3 and 4. In fact, I answered 4 similarly. And yes, your human was rude and uncaring and she doesn't deserve you.

Spitty, isn’t she supposed to be catering to your every whim now?? What’s with her????
