Maizie’s Musings: Another Invader…

My least favorite thing about my people is that they are very busy. They seldom have time to give me sufficient head scratches and belly rubs. This is just not cool.

Now they seem preoccupied with someone new…a little Dad person. At least that’s what he looks like to me. He’s very short, has blonde hair, and blue eyes. The last time I saw him he was unable to do much, except sit on the floor or crawl on his hands and knees very slowly. He sleeps almost as much as I do. I can’t understand the gibberish often emanating from his mouth. He often holds things in his hand. Is he a band conductor or something?

When he gets unhappy, he makes an awful racket. I don’t know what he’s doing, but his version of barking is very distasteful to my ears. And my whole group of people go running to him when he does this. Why would you run toward that??? 

The Mom person and Dad person will play with him all freaking day. Don’t ask me why. They’re just weird. What could be more fascinating than me?

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, I’m right in front of them and I don’t even get a head nod from them. But, I have figured out the secret to getting some attention, even when this little Dad person is around. I wait until he’s sitting on the junior Mom person’s lap and then sit right in front of her. Eventually, she will convince him to pat my fur.

His pats are not all that helpful to me, but everyone seems to think it’s really cute when I allow him to do that. As a result, I usually get some head scratches from the bigger people.

I’ve also noticed that the big black dog is around when he’s around. I can tell he’s not much of a fan of this little Dad person most of the time, but he, like me, has learned how to maneuver himself into that little person’s area so he can get his head scratches, too.

I’m told that this little invader and the big black dog will be around this weekend. And now the little nuisance is walking. Great–this means I’ll actually have to keep up with him now to get those little pats and my subsequent head scratches.

I’m going to need more dog food for this. Way more.
