Hi, there! I’m Tipper Allen, and guess what? I found a new play-toy!
Momma likes to hide toys from me so I can find them for myself, ’cause that’s more funner. She hid this one on top of her computer tower. Every time I find him, she puts him back in ezzackly the same place, so I can always find him again. Isn’t she fun? Then she acts like she’s kind of fussing at me. Ha-ha-ha! We have so much fun playing like that!
Here’s the toy.
His head and feet and tail are soft and woogley.
I jump on the desk and stand up and pull him off the top of the computer tower and we jump and play all over the house. Then Momma finds him.
But this one time, he made me mad. He said he was a cat, like me! I said, “You not a cat!” And he said, “Uh-huh, I am, too! I’m a tortoiseshell!”
I knocked him over, but he didn’t care. He was rolling on the floor, kicking his feet and laughing, and Momma came in and saw him and put him away.
Maybe next time, he won’t be so silly, and we can play longer.
