Hi, everybody! Ya know, I have liked every human I have ever met but sometimes they are very hard to understand. Mommy tells me all the time that I'm her handsome baby boy. She also tells me that I'm blue but most of my fur looks grey to me. Regardless, she thinks I'm handsome and that gets me lots of kisses so, don't tell her I'm not blue.
Anyway, yesterday Mommy said I gave her 100 grey hairs. I was excited when she said this at first because I thought it would be really fun if we matched. However, she did not seems nearly as happy as I did.
I thought I was doing a good job being her helper kitty yesterday but apparently I made a mistake. You see, Mommy puts herbs in everything. She puts them in my food and it makes it taste super yummy. She puts them in her food and she even makes stuff to drink out of them. She calls the herbs she drinks, tea. Sometimes when she isn't looking, I sneak a few sips of her tea and I like it a lot. Shh, don't tell on me!
Well, yesterday, I thought Mommy had lost her mind. She mixed up a big bowl of herbs into a giant glop of mud. Then she smeared it all over her head! So, I took that as my cue to step in and remind her that herbs are for eating.
I jumped up on the table where she sat and I gulped down a mouthful of her herb mud. It did not taste very good at all. It also kind of made Mommy freak out. She called and emailed all her Herbalist friends to see if I was going to get sick.
Mommy must have known that I couldn't get that yukky taste out of my mouth because she let me eat a big pile of raw chicken and it did the trick. Then we took a catnap together and I never did get sick.
She said that herb mud on her head is called Henna and it is not intended to be eaten by kitties but it's not deadly. She said if I had eaten more of it though, I would have had a bad case of the poops. Next time she puts herb mud on her head, I have to stay in the bedroom and play with my toys.
