The other day as I was sitting with the Dad, he asked, “Tessa, so how are things going with you today?”
Boy, did I give him an earful! And that got me to thinking. So much un-mentionable stuff goes on around here in our day-to-day lives that Mom never says much about (which is quite the feat for her because she has something to say about E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G.), I figure someone ought to speak up. Plus, she was feeling under the weather for two whole weeks and missed out on a lot!
That’s where I come in! Either from my high perch or one of my many hide-y holes, I see everything…even more than Pia who tattles on everyone!
Like last month, Mom was feeling good about washing down all the corners in all the downstairs rooms just in case there were…um, certain smells if you know what I mean, because someone who shall remain briefly nameless was putting some there and blaming the rest of us. And just as she finished, the one whose name begins with M.A.X.X. must have thought, “This ain’t right,” and well, fixed that erroneous thinkin’. You could hear the tinkling sound for miles, I swear! Ewwww! And now he’s banished to the big upstairs room that couldn’t possibly have anything to do with punishment because we all know the good toys and servants and treats reside in there! Unfair!
Oh, and Quint had to have not one or two, but three pieces of string taken away from him last week causing Mom to wonder where on Earth he was getting them. MOL! The Princess Pillow, silly Mom! It has long, dangly and very tempting fringe on it! Well, she took that pillow away and now, no one knows where it’s hiding. *sad ears*
Speaking of dangling things, little sister Pia, please, check that floofy tail of yours coming from the box a wee bit more often, okay? Like berries. Little bitty brown berries…maybe it’s because of all the bugs you claim to eat. Ha! See? I warned you that if you tattled on me, I’d tattle back! THERE ARE NO SECRETS! PHFFFFT!
Got no complaints about the sweet dark one. Olivia’s a peach. Good snuggling buddy. She’ll always have my back. Plus, she’s got secret tabby stripes just like me! Shhh, don’t tell Mom. She’s always whipping out that flashy box thing to prove this, that or the next thing.
Big brother Seth, well, I’ve been here since May and I still can’t get a bead on him at all. Mysterious. Drapey. And never gets into trouble. Where’s the fun there? And always napping, not that I don’t enjoy a good long nap too. It’s just, he has two special, toasty-warm sleeping places that no one, and I mean, NO ONE cares to investigate and claim for themselves. It’s odd.
And then there’s Newton, also known sometimes as Miss Newton. Funny, I’m never called MISS Tessa. Anyway, we’re purr-fect tussling angels and as long as the Dad gives her an hour a day and Mom stops with her incessant clickity-clicking on that
laptop lapwarmer and gives me my hour a day, we’ll stay that way.
Well, that’s all I can remember for now. Hope you enjoyed hearing about the un-mentionables! Until next time, Tessa, a.k.a. Danger Cat out!
