Dowager on a Downer

Wednesday, February 27, 2008

It's kinda odd how, when my human is sick, I get to feeling down and out myself. Even though she went out and bought me a turkey and cooked it up and shredded it into bite size pieces, I find that my mind is on other things. I do love the turkey. Don't get me wrong. It's just that when I'm feeling so low, it is just and effort to get off my rocking chair and head over to the food dish to eat. I do eat plenty and nibble on it all day. My human is quite satisfied with my appetite. It's just that when my bones hurt, I get to yowling a lot, and she gets annoyed and shuts the door on me.

Now how is that gonna make me feel good? Where is my self esteem going? I am the Queen of my home, and she seems to forget it. I am so disappointed that I don't even bother to bite her anymore. I just purr like crazy the next morning when she picks me up and holds my like a baby. Her baby, and I don't mind. Though undignified for a Queen.

I guess I should appreciate the things that I got. Like the fresh water bowl sitting beneath the distilled water container. She didn't realize that I would be interested in it. She just put it there to catch the drips. But, I love it! The distilled water is so pure and delicious. I have never touched the faucet water bowl since the new one appeared. It is an effort to drink from it, though worth it. I have to stand on my hind legs (so unlady-like) and dip my face into the bowl. I cannot get my paw in there to lick the water off my paw as I would prefer. But, like I said. It's worth it.

Well, maybe I will feel better tomorrow. In the meantime, I think I will go take a long nap.
