Raised underfoot


I see that I'm going to have to be Veeeerrrrrryyyyy Careful getting out of my chair...

Trooper at workTrooper at work

Yes, that is Trooper with his head against my chair roller.  Earlier today, I looked down and he was in essentially the same position, but his front leg was under the roller bar.  If I'd Just Gotten Up (as I often Just Do), I'd've broken his leg.

In other news, progress has been made on the list I published this morning, to wit:

1.  A podcast interview (with Steve), rescheduled from yesterday RESCHEDULED TO TOMORROW
2.  Cleaning up All The Stuff Trooper threw down from those High Places that he has made his own, and deciding where in ghod’s name to put it
3.  Doing the laundry STARTED
4. Waiting for the electrician to manifest, sometime after noon
5. Paying the bills and balancing the checkbook
6.  I’m also considering vacuuming the house — but that might make for too heady a celebration I OPT OUT -- and opt in for a nap, instead.  Holy freaking cow, it's hot...

Ash (my newish kitten- see icon) does not understand either. She plonks on the floor in front of me & my crutches and refuses to move. I hope that neither of us suffers a great injury when she causes me to trip.

Hmn. Perhaps Trooper is using the chair-bits as a sort of pillow? Or thinks you need careful watching, so you don't get lost ....

I've got one sleeps under the foot rest of the recliner I use as a desk chair (long complicated story. . .). I have to sit up slowly and carefully. Even so, about half the time, I have to threaten to sit up two or three times to get him to move before I clong him with the foot rest. I live in fear that he will get up into the machinery . . . aaaagh! Horrible thought!

Trusting Kitty
Glad Trooper is feeling so at home. You've no doubt heard the old story of whoeveritwas in the old days who wanted to pick up his cape but his cat was asleep on the cape. So he cut a cat shaped hole I the cape and picked it up. Didn't want to disturb his cat.

Dogs are not at all as trusting. My dogs know to stay well away from my rolling computer chair which pushes back without notice.
