Because I’m already awake

Because I’m already awake I’ll write a little update.  Yesterday we had to experience the intrusion that is the potential salon next door so needless to say, I’m a little uneasy.  (I’ll update more on that once I figure out what’s going on.  All I know is that our block now looks like Elle Wood’s dorm room with tacky pictures and cutesy decor all over. Yes, such things stress me out.)

But it’s already 7:00 AM so I have to get myself ready for my usual visit to the gym.  Without working it does become increasingly dull to not have anywhere to go each day, so I’m glad to have my gym membership to keep me motivated. Plus, the visit to the library and the walk back through the park is really nice.  It helps me keep my reading up and my brains busy before I get back home and back to my own work here.

Anyway, we’ve been thinking about getting another cat for Mr. Jake but I’m still not sure.  He wakes us up constantly every morning, at 5AM, 6AM, 7AM…  I feel bad because I wonder if he’s lonely. I also wonder if he’d beat another cat up – tom cats aren’t usually known for their sparkling personalities, are they?  Anyway, if an opportunity does come up for us to look into having a sister cat, we may.  I just know if I got one from a shelter and Jake had a fit, I’d never bring a cat back to the SPCA.  Such a dilemma.

Maybe we should just get a dog. (Just kidding, Steve!)


  1. My mom "collects" cats. The TomCats do much better with a female rather than another male.

    Or maybe your neighbor Elle, will let you borrow Bruiser? oie, sorry...that really sounds stinko.

  2. I think a girl cat is the best option too. He's fixed so he'll be okay with a female around.
    Ugh, the neighbor thing is so nuts. Thanks.
