Andy tried to get may attention, but I’d just begun reading today’s comics online. (“Dang! Can’t the cat wait a moment?” I wondered.)
I tried to ignore Andy a bit longer, but he knew I had something on my computer desk that he wanted.
Yes, I had the boys’ new favorite toy! And I wasn’t letting them play with it.
Dougy tried to hop up on my computer desk from the wrong side, knocking down my keyboard and scratching me in the process. I said some words and recovered my keyboard. Dougy ran into the kitchen to hide. He knew he was temporarily the bad boy! (No real harm done, however, and I noted the incident removed one cat from the play for a few minutes more.)
But it didn’t eliminate Andy! He hopped on top of my computer and gave me “The Look.”
“Yes, master,” I told him, and we played with the new favorite toy for several minutes. Dougy came back, too, and we had a play party.
