    Don't feel bad. Do you know how many times I've kicked poor Waldo in the nose? Most people when they go to bed tend to sit on the bed and swing their legs in and lay down. I don't do anything the normal way. I go in on my hands and knees, so when my feet swing up off the ground, he's ALWAYS right there in the way and I accidently kick him. You'd think he'd have learned by now. But since he has to walk RIGHT behind you (with his nose glued to our backsides), he tends to be in the way when I climb in bed.

    Waldo is either like Dozer "lurking" behind me or he's right in front of me going slow. I guess we both play the game of who can trip or kick who.

    The absolute WORST is that he sleeps on the floor of the bedroom and I have to step over him in the night when I go to the bathroom. Most of the time he doesn't move and my klutzyness causes me to trip as I'm trying to not step on him or as I go to step over him, he stands up and then I'm really lurching around trying not to fall.

    The little dogs have learned to stay out of the way. They know I'm a klutz.

    By the way, Waldo's nose mole has disappeared. There isn't even a mark where it once was. I don't know what happened to it, but its gone. Weird.
    If he scratched it off, wouldn't it have let a mark? (Maybe I kicked it and it fell off) But there isn't a scab or anything there now.

    C'Mon ... admit you stuck your chewing gum on his nose and forgot. Or maybe someone sat on some chewing gum and it got stuck on Waldo's nose during his hind-hanging travels.

    My cocker spaniel Princess has now gone almost completely blind. Of our three dogs, she is the one that is Mother's little helper and follows every step I take. She used to love going outside to chase after anything that moved but now refuses to go and must be taken out on a leash. I know this stems from one night when we let her out and she couldn't seem to find her way back to the front door. I love her to death but it has gotten to the point where I need to put her in another room when I am doing my housework as she is always underfoot and I have stepped on her more than once. Not fun for either of us

    he was in rare form last night again. Wouldn't get off the bed and rolled and wiggled and tossed his head and just generally made a pain of himself. I felt like I was laying on a trampoline. But he was having fun.

    Why am I allergic to one of my 'gurls', "the stalker", but not the other two? That's kind of distressing, since she likes to get in my face, and sleep close to me. I hate to keep pushing her away.

    I have an allergy to long haired cats but not short haired cats. It's not unusual.
    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

    Unfortunately I am allergic to all cats. We had then when I was a child, but I haven't had a cat in almost 30 years.

    That's why I love reading about everyone's kitties here so much. I have to admire from afar.

    I am, should I say in the cat house? I wanted to do a first ever Christmas picture of Joey. I found a little santa hat and little red bow tie, which I proceeded to put on him, bow tie first then hat, but he HISSED AT ME and got the damn tie off, shook off the hat and is now GLARING at me.

    Aww bewty I know that is hard for you. Chauncy used to key in on the porch light to make it back to the door. Sometimes he would head back to the wrong apartment. He was deaf also so I wouldn't let him out by himself as I was afraid he would get hit by a car. When I first moved in here, before he went blind and deaf, my best friend lived in the townhouse 2 doors down. He used to go sit in front of her door waiting to be let in because that's the apartment he was used to coming to when we used to visit her.
