Mom made me a T-Shirt cave out of my favorite box and one of my dad’s t-shirts and I liked it so much, I *might* have gotten carried away with chewing on parts of it. I mean, it smelled so good, like dad who plays toys with me in the evenings. Mom thought I was chewing on the box but dad’s t-shirt *might* have gotten in the way of my teefs. Mom said they did, anyway.

So I had to have a talk with mom. You know, one of those talks where she does all the talking and I have to sit and do all the listening? Something about chewing dad’s shirt and how dad wouldn’t be happy and how I needed a time-out to think about what I had done and how I was going to tell him about that hole.

Feeling a little shamed, I thought about my actions for a while. How I see it, if my dad didn’t smell so good, maybe I wouldn’t have been tempted. Or, maybe he wouldn’t notice that teensy hole, or wouldn’t mind knowing his baby liked his shirt just as much as he does. Maybe mom shouldn’t have tempted me in the first place and if so, whatever happened wouldn’t really be my fault at all. In that case, I wouldn’t have to answer for it. Mom would!

And so, while mom was doing something else, I marched right back to that T-Shirt cave, made out of my favorite box and my dad’s t-shirts and picked back up where I left off.

Shortly after, my mom took the T-Shirt cave apart and I’ll bet dad’s t-shirt is hanging back up in the closet. I watch my dad get dressed every day and he’s yet to wear that particular t-shirt so maybe he doesn’t know yet. If mom had said anything, he’d surely would have said something.

Let’s keep this secret between just you and me, okay? No one wants a wee one to get into trouble, right?

  1. What a beautiful cave and with a T-shirt from your Dad ! What a creativity !

  2. We won’t breathe a word about your T-shirt cave Viola, after all we all need to have a secret place for a nap.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  3. We think you were purrfectly reasonable…. but they might not see you as a wee one anymore. Which means you can’t get away with quite as much now.

  4. We think your mom should have given you a shirt that was ok to chew a hole in. . after all, she gave it to you, so it should have been yours, right? 😉

  5. I agree 100% with Rene S!

  6. Your mom should have let you have that tee shirt. What was she thinking when she put it on that box? Kitties love to bite cardboard–the tee was bound to get in the way 😉

  7. Apparently your human doesn’t understand you artistic aspirations. She’ll have to go to the thrift shop to get you some materials to practice with. It worked for Quint!

  8. If he notices, just tell your dad that you were helping him spruce up his attire a bit, Viola. After all, those humans need all the help they can get. Also, you sure are cute!

  9. Your secret is safe with me 🙂 Sorry you didn’t get to keep it 🙁

  10. I promise, I won’t say one word!! My Mom thought it was pretty darned clever to put the T-shirt on the box to begin with! Love, Cody

  11. Butter1pop!

    Yes Viola, maybe Daddy wouldn’t mind knowing that his baby liked his shirt so much and that this is all Mom’s fault for making such a good smelling T-shirt cave. It is this power of magical thinking that only works for cute baby cats like you Viola!!

  12. Yes Viola, maybe Daddy wouldn’t mind knowing that his baby liked his shirt and that this is all Mom’s fault for making such a good smelling tshirt cave. It is this power of magical thinking that lets super cute baby cats like you get away with almost anything Viola!!

  13. we won’t tell Viola….though we aren’t sure why your dad can’t give you the shirt for permanent cave

  14. We’re good at secret Viola.

  15. I think it’s all your Mom’s fault for giving it to you in the first place. 🙂

  16. viola….frank lee… we think …& noe o fence quint….coz dood we LOVES yur werk….but frank lee… we think ya haza op ore toona TEE ta make sum big time cash heer…. bye sellin :

    viola shirtz ona box !!!

    kinda like jack in de box but yur knot a boy & ya wont pop outta a tin can thingie

    think a bout it !! ~~~~~~ ♥♥♥

  17. It could be worse – ya could chew underwear like one of our pupses does.

  18. We won’t tell anyone, Viola! And yes, we agree … how could it be YOUR fault if MOM put the t-shirt there in the first place? 😉

  19. My human has some old promotional shirts that are too big for her… maybe she should make a t-shirt cave out of them. She doesn’t care what any of us kitties do to them.

  20. Now that is clever! A box that smells like your dad
    Hugs Madi your bffff

  21. We won’t tell about your tee-shirt cave, Viola ! Purrs

  22. Katie Isabella

    Viola, you should have that tee shirt cave back again. We all want you to have it. You are a baby and you should have it right now!

  23. That t-shirt cave is really cool! We have heard about those, but you may be the first kitty we know who has one.

  24. Viola, your Mom made you that cave so it was yours. Humans always try to blame us innocent little kitties.

  25. Mums da word. MOL But why didn’t yous mommy just give ya’ da tshirt and let yous have da cool cave all da time. Seems only fair to us. MOL

    Luv ya’

    Dezi and Lexi

  26. I sure hope you get you cave back…with the tee shirt. Dad should be honored!

  27. That’s a fabulous idea. We might copy that tshirt cave. Thanks Vi.

    Emma and Buster

  28. You should just be allowed to have that shirt. Your Dad has other shirts to wear, right?

  29. Wait? She gave you the shirt and then told you not to chew it? It’s your shirt, Viola, and you can do whatever you want. Your dad can get a new shirt.

  30. We agree! She gave you his shirt. Now it’s yours. End of story.

    (We’ll make Mom to do something similar for us – this looks so cozy!)

  31. Possession is 9/10 of the law so we say it’s YOURS!
