And as mentioned in a previous post, I recently purchased an inexpensive Dell laptop. We keep it in the den and use it occasionally while watching TV. Well, Tux is the only male cat remaining in our house-hold and he has the most 'cat-i-tude'. He is a good natured cat, but gets his feelings hurt very easily. If he is sitting on my lap and another cat passes by... if I have the audacity to pet them, he is insulted and will get up and leave. If another cat is sitting on my lap, and he wants the spot, he just sits on top of them until they leave. He doesn't like me to knit or read or do anything but pay attention to him during what he considers his time. He will knock my knitting needles away or put his face over the page I'm reading. Well, I was using the laptop and set it aside on the sofa... in it's case. Tux jumped up on the sofa and sat on it. If I was even thinking about using it again, he would give me 'the look'. Look at these next pictures and you will recognize 'the look'.

And yes, they are spoiled. When you live with cats for 20 or more years, you do communicate in various ways. Both Tux and Julie are very vocal. They yell for what they want... whether it's to get into a particular room (or to get out of a particular room), if they want treats, etc. Well, Tux loves to drink out of people's glasses. It's a bad habit... but one we decided we couldn't win, so what's the phrase, 'if you can't beat them, join them'... I started giving Tux his own glass so he would leave mine alone. Now he actually expects it...if we have a glass, he wants his... and asks for it. I fill a water glass and add a few ice-cubes and he's happy. In fact, they all like to drink out of Tux's glass now. There's usually a line awaiting their turn. Now, this is besides the fact that they have a water bowl in the kitchen and another in the bathroom as well as a kitty water fountain on the floor.... go figure?

Hope you all have a great rest of the week! I've been fighting a croupy cough this week so missed my exercise classes (coughing keeping me awake... but better last night).
