Samson: Let’s take a break.
Samson: I think I see it.
Karl: I think I see my shadow.
Samson: Pay attention, Karl!
Karl: Sorry. I wonder if this means we’ll have 6 more weeks of summer.
Samson: We’ll have six more weeks of summer anyway. It’s only July.
Karl: Oh, I didn’t think about that. Never mind.
Hello. My name is Quincy.
I have a confession to make.
I like balls. To be precise, I like the bowl of balls Mom brought home yesterday. Not sure why she got them, but I like them very much.
In this photograph, you can see I am trying to act nonchalant so she doesn’t suspect I’m going to go after them again. I stood on my hind legs and knocked one out of the bowl onto the floor. I didn’t make a sound, but somehow, she found out. I only had a few minutes to bat it around. Then she put it back in the bowl.
Next time, I knocked out a ball and a stick. She must have gotten this bowl of balls and sticks for us to play with. I think she got them for me because I was so well-behaved for the doctor. I didn’t hiss at her even once. She said now that I’m bigger I can see better out of my one good eye even though I’m mostly blind. She said it was like looking out of dirty glasses.
Samson doesn’t seem interested in the balls. You can see him sitting in the background of this photograph on the small sofa.
Mom keeps cleaning and moving things around which bothers us cats: we don’t like change. She keeps putting new toys on the table, like these orange mats and cloth things to put on them. The best part is not the things inside, but the giant plastic bags they are contained in. I love to chew and lick them. I don’t know why.
Anyway, Mom is at work now, so I have plenty of time to retrieve more balls and sticks and play with them.
Life is good.
