It's raining today, and might be a bit windy. Maybe the wind will knock off all the last leafs. Several of Mom's friends and fambly members who were visiting over the Turkey Day Holiday said Mom should just "call it" and decide the contest was over. Mom and I feel that Fair is Fair, so we will continue the contest until the last leaf really does fall or until December 16.
Some of you might remember this picture of me, taken three years ago. I was trying to tell Mom that I was NOT interested in "this petting business." (I was such a young, innocent little kit.)
Mom got home last night and as soon as I finished eating I let her know in No Uncertain Terms that I felt neglected, and that she had to SIT so I could get the cuddles, scritches and attention I have been missing these last few days.
I climbed in next to her, and got my scritches. Woo hoo!
In fact, she SAT for most of the evening. Several hours, in fact. She read a book, and only got up to have some spaghetti and meatballs for dinner. (Of course I got some.)
