Hi, there! I’m Tipper Allen, and guess what? Momma went to sell books at a thing called PURRS In The City, and she broughted me home a new toy! PURRS In The City is a selling fing put on by the Animal Protection Association, which is nice people who take care of cats. They have it every year, Momma says, and she always goes to sell books, and she always spends more than she makes. But she says she gets some good presents there, and it helps the kitties. Yay, Momma!
This is the toy she broughted me. One of the ladies there made it. It’s little, and it has catnip in it!
She said, “It’s a cat toy! Cat. Toy. Get it?”
I sniffed it and pretended I didn’t like it. I went and played with a bag in a laundry basket.
Then I tried to climb up inna winda to watch the birdies.
But I really wanted to play with my new toy, so I finally gave in.
A WRITING PROMPT FOR ANIMALS: When your hooman gives you a present, do you ever act like you don’t care or don’t like it?
