Thursday Thirteen

So Mom finally came out of the talking box late last night. I was so happy to see her. Even though it was late, I wanted to play, I was so excited! And even though Mom was tired, she played with me! I asked her if she visited Chey while up in Seattle, but she said no, but she did get to Pike's Market and saw some great fish, and guys throwing it around! But she didn't bring me any home, which didn't make me very happy.

But I am happy she is home. There are just some things she does better than Dad (even though I really love Dad). Here are thirteen of them:

1. Clean the litter box. Dad thinks once a day is a lot, where as Mom does it at least twice.
2. Pick out food. Mom knows the kind of treats I like better, especially the stinky goodness, and prepares it better.
3. Shoulder rides. Dad just doesn't get this.
4. Walks. Another thing I just can't get Dad to do, although he likes to come out when Mom and I go for walks. I missed my friends the past few days.
5. Water. Mom always fills up a glass on the night stand for me. Dad always lets it go empty.
6. Bed snuggles. Dad often falls asleep on the couch, and as much as I try, I can't get comfortable there. Mom always sleeps in the big bed, which is plenty big for both of us.
7. Comfy chair. Mom always sits here and plays with me. Dad never does, so I sleep in it cause it smells like Mom.
8. Mom is a better conversationalist, and always talks to me.
9. Mom always remembers the Temptations, although sometimes she makes me work for them (like making me sit or beg, which I will do, hey, its Temptations!)
10. Hide and Seek. Mom plays this game great! Dad says he is too old (Mom sometimes complains about this too).
11. Mom always helps me blog and stay in touch with all my blogging friends, even when she is in the talking box
12. Play music. Dad plays whistle, which is OK, but I love the fiddle much more.
13. Cuddles. Mom just knows how to do this better!

Like you, Tara, I really love my dad, but there are some things that moms do better. That is so cool that your mom plays hide-n-seek with you! Your mom sounds great. :)

Tara, I agree, Moms are the best! My Daddie will not take me out in my stroller, and he never feeds me Tem-tay-shuns! Your Mom sounds nice.

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Yup, moms is definitely better at some stuff. Dad is learning but der are some things he can't/won't do. He's better at playing fetch tho, and he naps more den mom duz so...I gess we need dem both.

Hi Tara, I am a mama's boy myself. Don't get me wrong, I love my daddy's chin scritches and play time, but I can't do without my mommy. Daddy of course lays around more than mommy, but his tummy isn't as soft so I can't get as comfy as mommy's. He tries hard though.
Your mommy sounds like lotsa fun. hide n seek is a great game and I'm glad you get to play.

The Tall Man is pretty cool but I agree, he just doesn't know how to do things properly. Its funny because I posted about him today for my TT!

Mom do these things better 'cause, ... well,... they're moms!

Kimo likes shoulder rides too - must be a meezer thing!

What is it about Dads and couches? Mine falls asleep there too. I love to sleep on top of his legs, and I think the couch is great for that. Besides, Dad won't let me sleep in the big bed. Dad is my favorite because, as a big man cat, I need a big man to emulate. Bathsheba prefers Mom.

We are so glad your Mom is out of that box. This is a great list. Our Dad feeds us on time, but other things Mom is best. But we love our Dad too cause he always lets climb all over his belly and we get lots of scritches. Hmmmm, maybe we should ask Dad to help us blog, our Mom usually is a blog hog and does it for us, because she is some weird word cop. Hmmmmm.... We love you Tara, and so glad you have such great parents! Purrs
