My son still needs to finish his room. They did do most of the kitchen cleaning chores. I did have to stand over my son to get him to clean the kitty litter. ggggrrrrrrrr Then there were Da Boys. They went between ignoring me and sitting on the mouse pad so I had no room (except when they were sitting on my hand!!). Even Star decided that he should be the one typing at one point!! Mister Kitten wanted to help Jennifer with her netbook!!
See, being nice and polite. But later... later... later... we heard kitty noises. Kitty fighting noises, outside. Both Jennifer and I tried call for kitties but while the music stopped no kitties appeared. Time for the big guns. I grabbed shoes. My daughter grabbed treats. I took my walker and with the outside lights on started calling kitties again. "What? Mom?? Were you calling us??" Yeah, right. I headed toward the backdoor (totally freaking them out since I normally head back to the front). Star went right in. Zaphy wasn't quite sure (which was actually when I sent Jen for treats). Once treats were involved (and Star got his first, good boy!!). Mister Kitten had kinda roamed further away, worrying me a bit as I kept talking to him.
As soon as Jen gave Star his treat Zaphy was right there in line for his!! "Com'on Mister Kitten!! Treats!!!" At which point he looked in, saw that the other boys were getting treats and dashed into the house!! I closed the doors and headed back around the front. Jen very smartly had closed the window with the cat flap (easier than locking the cat flap) so that they stay inside tonight. Whew!!
Oh, and did I mention the lovely dinner Jennifer made? A steak with essence, herb butter, corn on the cob & mashed potatoes. mmmmmmmmm
