We took a sabbatical, and we'd planned to return in another month or so. But, events drove us back to the blog.
The staff got a KITTEN (We obviously don't keep them busy enough.). It's tiny, fuzzy and loud. The thing screams all the time. And it keeps spitting at us -- it's capable of these explosive, full-body spits. And belches. You'd think it eats beans all day.
Yeah, we know it's cute. So what? We've seen kittens before.
They roll around on the floor a lot, get plenty of attention, chase stuff and eventually get in trouble for clawing or eating something they shouldn't.
Ernie, by the way, hates it. He's gotten better over the last few days, and he's mellowing a bit. He feels like he's lost a bit of territory. We tell him it won't last.
We remember when he was a kitten. He was pretty well-behaved, but he was a kitten and he can't change that.
