a catchy little song

Today I let the Lady pet me at dinnertime and ate some treats from her hand. I slept next to Gizzy for a while, then napped on the couch after dinner. I played with my new toy. As for how Jasmine's doing, well, let me tell you this little story.

She was sitting next to the Lady while the Lady was tippy-tappying on the silver lapbox. I went over to see what was going on. Jasmine practically flew off the Lady's chair and chased me under the couch, hissing, "I am not dead yet!" Then she walked back and forth in front of the couch, making sure I couldn't get out, singing it over and over, like it was a song:

"I am not dead yet
I can dance and I can sing
I am not dead yet
I can do the Highland Fling

I am not dead yet
No need to go to bed
No need to call the doctor
Cause I'm not yet dead..."

O-kay, oh-KAY, I get it.

(lyrics from Spamalot )

hehehe What a funny song! I don't know who spamalot is, but I don't think they needs apologies. Go Jasmine :) (But tell Jasmine it's ok to be nice to you, Millie!)

The Lady says Spamalot is a Broadway show from Monty Python. She and her people famiy went to see it. They all have a weird sense of humor. And you are right, this Lady can't sing either.

Mommy giggles n sez Jasmine is "Notdeadfred"... whatever THAT is. And then she put one of her shiny round thingies in the pink box and there was MUSIC with those words!! Is the pink box a Notdeadfred too?

Silly hoomans. One minute they're complaining 'bout spam and then they're singing about it...

hello, millie! we're glad to hear you're getting more comfy in your furever home. gizzy seems like a furry nice kitty to hang out with.

and jasmine? well, you just let her chase and sing at you. if she feels good enough to do it, that's a "good thing". it means she's not feeling too bad to move or show 'tude!

please be nice to her, sugarkitty, even if she's not bein' nice to you, 'cause The Lady needs to see her acting like she always does. and maybe you two will be friends, yet!

You go, Jasmine girl! Show that wonderful spunk!
