Scratchy on the CouchThis is Scratchy here. Bongo’s not around so I guess I’ll take over his blog. It’s really quiet here. Everybody left me. No Bongo, no people – just me and the frog.

I wish my person had forgotten and left the bathroom door open. She keeps the frog in there so I can’t get it. That would be one tasty morsel. But no – she had to shut that door and all she left me is a big bowl of cat food.

I kind of miss everybody. Even Bongo. I pretend I don’t like him, but sometimes he’s kind of nice to have around to keep me company. Oops. Did I say that?

Never mind. I really miss my people. I miss the head rubs and being able to bug them for food at dinner time – and when they come home after Bongo’s stolen my food.

Well Bongo can’t steal my food now. He’s not here for a few days. Guess I’ll go make a dent in my great big bowl of cat food and then stretch out for a nap.

    Scratchy I’m sorry you can’t be with your person on Thanksgiving but think of all the fun you can have with the house to yourself (minus the darn bathroom of course!) Roory is spending the weekend alone too with a large bowl of food and no bathroom access 🙂

      Deannamelanie, I wish Roory and I could hang out together. We could share our big bowls of food. -Scratchy

    Hi, Scratchy – you are not completely alone when blogging. I wonder if the frog will give it a try as well?

      Puzzle, you’re right. Even though I have to steal Bongo’s blog I’m getting some new friends. I’m not sure about the frog blogging – he doesn’t do much, except when I try to get at him. -Scratchy

    Scratchy, your post reminds me of Tony Bennett’s song “The Good LIfe.” You’ve got it so “ruff” until your family gets home. Enjoy.

      Sandra, It’s kind of lonely, but the quiet is nice too – as long as it doesn’t last too long.

    Enjoy your time to yourself, Scratchy! This time tomorrow I may be wishing we could switch places!

      Wonderbutt’s person, no switching. I’m afraid I would turn into Wonderbutt’s toy. -Scratchy

      Rumpy, Happy Thanksgiving to you too. At least I can get on Bongo’s blog and have my blogging friends to keep me company. -Scratchy

    Let’s see a picture of the frog! Tall person used to keep bull frogs and tree frogs and toads – he loves them 🙂

    Have a very happy Thanksgiving!

      Bassa, it’s a really strange frog that has to stay underwater except to come up for air. My person says the frog has lived here for over ten years – my younger person got it as a pet when he was much younger. Here’s a link to a post with a picture of the frog. That’s cool that the tall person likes frogs.

    Poor Scratchy! Anyway, I hope that you and the rest of your family have a happy Thanksgiving!

      Sweet Kitten, thanks. My person says she is looking forward to a good day with family – and I think I’ll sleep mostly. -Scratchy

      Brown Dawgs, I hope my family comes home soon too – but at least no one is disturbing my sleep. -Scratchy

      Just Ramblin’ Pier, it is kind of nice having it so quiet around here. -Scratchy
