Hi, there! My name is Tipper Allen, and guess what? I have a whole couch, all to myself! It has a quilted cover on it, so I don’t get cushion thread on my white coat, and a pillow I can hide behind to watch the birds and squirrels. If I sit at the window, not as many of them land, and they don’t stay very long. So I sneak and peek!
The sun comes in onto that couch, too, and that’s nice.
But I’m not selfish. I let anybody sit with me who wants to.
And, the other day, my poppa decided to take a nap on it! He usually takes a nap on another couch that’s too skinny. There isn’t room for me, Poppa, and those weird long hind legs that people hobble around on. Poppa even put one of the legs away, so there would be more room for me.
My Aunt Sweetie Pie says it’s been too long since I posted a picture of her, so here’s one:
Oh, and Momma wants me to tell you that she found her ring. She said, “It was in a box of scarves I had looked through before, but I looked more carefully and there it was.” Maybe I can get her to find my middle-sized mouse. I’ve looked everywhere! Momma says, “You haven’t looked everywhere, because you still haven’t looked where it is.” Ha ha.
