Recycling: Midnight & Mancat Monday

Hi Everybuddy--
This was my postie last Monday, but last week we were concentrating on the tragic loss of baby Violette, so I thought that I would run this again.
Momma left me at Granny and Poppa's for three days and then came back, but then she promptly turned around and left again, this time with Granny and Poppa and Auntie Jane and all of her family! They were gone for three days, too. Luckily then I had four good days of playing at Granny & Poppa's with everyone home before the terrible ordeal of driving back to Ithaca.

My cousin Sophie and I get along together pretty well, once she gets over sulking and hiding under the bed for the first two days. This is my cousin Sophie on her favorite hang-out spot, her red condo:

Here is a nice headshot of Sophie. She has rockin' Golden Panther eyes.

Now, Sophie, see, is a lot more fun than her little sister Sassy. Sassy has major "tabbi-tude," Granny calls it. She keeps following me around the house, saying things like "YOU SUCK!" and "GO HOME, FATTY!" and "THIS IS NOT YOUR HOUSE!" in her squeaky little voice. I told her once, "ya know, pip-squeek, if you gotta problem with me, just go somewhere else." But she prefers following me everywhere, telling me that she doesn't like me. It gets very tiresome.

But Sophie is fun to play with. She can Coco play chase, and she and I play wrestle around the cat-ring after Granny gives us some good 'nip.
Here we are on the ring:
This is my favorite: we call it "Stand-off" !!! Momma makes a whistle sound, "ooo-ee-ooo-ee-ooooo." I think we should have a tumble-weed going by, too, but Momma draws the line at tumble weeds in the house. Bummer.

Sophie sounds like a lot of fun, Jimmy Joe! Too bad her sister wasn't so nice.

Sophie sounds like fun, glad you two enjoyed playing with each other. Too bad about Sassy. ~S, S & C

Trust me Jimmy Joe, tumble weeds aren't what they are cracked up to be. I had to deal with them when I was a feral and they can be very annoying!

It looks like you had a great time - it's nice that you have somewhere to go when your Momma is out of town!

Those are wonderful pictures of you playing with Sophie :-D She sounds like a very nice girl kittie. Sassy sounds like our Rascal, and notice the names they were given :-p

It's nice that your cousin played with you during your visit. I like her hammock.

Nip! Nip! Nip! You look like you made the best of the situation, Jimmy Joe! Sophie looks quite pretty!

Jimmy Joe, at least you got to have fun with Sophie, and she does have beautiful eyes! Some kitties are just too temperamental ... we wish Sassy wasn't so mean to you, because that just isn't nice at all!
