Caution: Rut Ahead

This is what humans call "falling into a rut".

I've just been pretty apathetic to all around me. I've had no desire to leave the couch. I've contemplated making art out of the litter, but it remained nothing more than a contemplation. I've picked and poked at my food, but the taste is simply blaise.

Not even observing Kelly Osbourne and her infectious smile could snap me out of this so-called "rut".

I'd always been curious how humans could fall into so many ruts when such ditches seemed to be fairly obvious, even from great distances. Now, I seem to have more clarity on the issue.

The only somewhat interesting thing to report is that I have returned to calling Ares by his adorable nickname of Chares (pronounced as cherries). His tear duct popped out last night, and the human pet just shook her head. Nothing like one more bill during the holidays to make the season bright!

Has anything interesting been happening with you, my friends and readers? If so, let me live vicariously through you.

Mack said...

Oh dog, no.
My life is about as boring as it gets.
Too bad about Ares eye.

Aoise said...

It must be 'rutting' season, ha ha. Everything was nicely boring until the locksmith came today to replace the front door lock and charged miewmie £165.50. She is still lying on the sofa in shock.

Nope nothing happening here apart from the Beans wishing they were back in sunny Hawaii, and us being glad they aren't.

The Creek Cats said...

Oh noes! We are so sorry to hear about Ares' tear duct. OUCH!! Sending him healing vibes!

Sorry to hear about Ares' eyes.
Don't worry you won't be in the rut for much longer just hold on until the holidays come then there'll be soo much excitement.

The Crew said...

Nothing exciting EVER happens around here, Zeus. We 4 lead very boring lives. Sorry, we can't help you out.

Well, crap. Now I realize that even less is happening in my life. At least you have interesting things happening in your life--like Chares' eye trying to bust out of his head. I think the most exciting thing that happened here was when our human ran up the stairs like her butt was on fire so she could make sure not to miss the Fed Ex delivery when the door bell rang. If only we had thumbs--then things would get spicy around here!

Pedro said...


Nope! Nothing interesting at all in my dawg house. That's why my mom has been so lax in posting. She's afraid every one would be bored to tears reading my blog... Hmpf! So insulting! Hope you get out of your rut and hope Cherrie's eye is ok!

I have hyperthyroid, but I'm good. More of the same.

Shaggy, Scooby and Scout said...

It's just that time of year.
We have a rut around here too.

Talk about boring lives. I, Noll the constipated one, had a BM yesterday and it was THE event of the week!

The Meezers said...

that sounds kind of icky! we is in a rut too - there's only so many times we can toss the same crap to the floor from the tables without getting bored.

Geez, we hope Ares eye is better. Mama's in a rut too, but we're trying to help her snap out of it. She says to tell you that EG eated a piece of plastic meshy string and then scooted it out on the carpet and then she freaked out and he had to go the v-e-t and get a :whispers: rectal exam. Hee hee!
He's ok, but Mama drinked a lot of adult beverages over the weekend.
