Peat, Repeat..

Hi, friends!

This is one of those repeat posts. It's not that it's been seen before, it's...anyway, it's written by the housekeeper who has lately felt neglected. Her brainstorm and a break for me!

Here goes:

I'm told I have a "you've got to be kidding expression" that I engage in quite frequently. For instance, when told.."Tom, you just inherited a million dollars!"

I react:


Then I say: "Okay, when can I have it?"

Or...

"Tom, you're descended from a long line of royal cats, diplomatic cats and other cats of distinction."


Now, that one was a hard one to look skeptical about. Okay, I finally gave in and acknowledged such a bloodline.

And, finally,

"Tom, I know this will be a surprise to you: you have a long-lost sister!"


"Right, likely story...where is she? You produce her, and I'll believe you."

As you can see, my skeptical look will never gather dust, I use it so much. In the world of humans, it's best to question; either that, or don't bother, just take a well-deserved nap!

Yeah, Tom...it’s hard to believe any of those things. Well, the bloodline thing...that might be true. :)

But how nice it would be to have a sister...truly. You are lucky to have housemates.....my mommy is all alone now that we have all gone to the rainbow bridge. But she is ever hopeful that someday a wayward stranger might come along. I’ve watched her as she sets out a bowl of snackies for some cat....every morning the bowl is empty.....sigh
Much affection from the former kitties of the cozy cottage....Miss Peach, Miss Hunny Bunny, Miss Hope and the garden kitties three

Tom the humans never tire of trying to get a rise out of we cats. When will they learn we have so much history that they need another 2000 years to try and cat-ch up. Of course then we will still be ahead by, yep, 2000 years

The "curl" scratcher is a nice prop for your photo shoot.

You've nailed the look, Tom. I have a few of my own favorites, but my best one is when dad thinks he's funny and slings insults at me I just glare at him like "Really? Really, old fatty pants?" You know, that kind of thing...
