Oh, hello! Have you noticed the weather getting cooler? What about the sun coming up later? I have! The trees outside are changing colors, too. It's especially nice to snuggle into the blankets between Mom and Dad at night. I've also decided I can be a nicer wake-up call than that noisy alarm clock, so before it gets noisy, I walk all over Mom and Dad, purring my loudest. Mom gives me skritches for being such a good alarm.
Well, the cooler weather hasn't reduced our energy levels, not one bit. In fact, I think Victor has more energy than ever! He races around like a maniac a couple of times a day and still has energy for THOE*.
But Victor can be a bit... clumsy sometimes. He gets excited and goofy and sometimes even loses some dignity! I try to maintain my dignity at all times**. Well, the other day, I was helping Mom relax on the bed. Victor came along, jumped onto the bed next to me, and started teasing me to come play. He nudged me and waved his tail around, so I stood up and started to stretch. I took one step toward Victor, and he leaped up and fell backwards off the bed! I was very surprised. I mean, I didn't even touch him, and there he went, ker-plop onto the floor. Mom laughed and laughed. I never won a game of chase/pounce/wrestling so easily before - I hope he's doesn't hold a grudge.
*THOE: Thundering Herd of Elephants... what Moms and Dads say we sound like when running through the house together at o-dark-thirty.
**Except when there's a red dot to chase, but... but... that's my DOT! It must be chased! I'll do almost anything to catch it!!
