Sweetie Pie Proudly Presents #Caturday

Sweetie PieSweetie Pie Turner here, MomGoth’s mom’s cat.

Last week, I told MomGoth I was zausted from posting every single Saturday, so you know what MomGoth did? She got me a sistant! He’s a boy, so I think he ought to be a brotherant, but MomGoth says that sistant is gender-neutral, so a sistant he is!

She knows I like being an only cat, so she keeps him at her house, but he works for me, and he’ll be doing all the Caturday work as soon as I get him trained.

The name he came with was Q-Tip, but Mr. MomGoth doesn’t like that name. He calls the new guy Tipper, so Tipper is his name now.

The training has begun. Here I teach him how to show his pretty head markings.

Here, I show him how to pose.

Here, I show him how to slink.

Of course, it’s imperative that one learn how to take a selfie. He took some teaching!



But he finally got it right.


He’s very shy, but I plan to have him ready to post for himself next Caturday. And I’ll still be reporting now and then about the goings-on up here at MomGoth’s mom’s house.

Until next time, be good humans!

A WRITING PROMPT FOR ANIMALS: What would you need/want to teach your sistant?

    The Sistant is acceptable!

    Lovely markings on the new kid. I hope Sweetie Pie gets him trained up soon.
    Maybe S.P. can still take some selfies from time to time???

    Love them pix!

      Tipper, we figure, was born in March, maybe. He was found as a weaned kitten eight months ago, so I’m giving him a March 21 birthday. Ought to call him Vernal Equinox. Hmmm…. Sounds like a name for a hick in one of my stories.

    Precious sistant! I love when one cat teaches another cat how to cat!

    My Clara had a patch like that on her head when she was wee, and it grew to be totally white. I’m curious if his will stay on, and his snout, too…

    So, in a related series of events: Last week, my friend Cole was searching for a solid white kitten for her mama. Had to be free, had to be fixed and flea-free. She found one, and he too had the slightest dark spot on his head. I said the same thing to her that I said to you, and I added, “I’m glad I didn’t name her Smudge!” Her mama named the new kitty Smudge!
    And then our mutual friend posted a photo of her neighborhood stray, also called Smudge.

      Ha! Do you know, it never occurred to me to call him Smudge, although Smutty would be a good name for him: he hangs out in the basement and is always covered in ash. Cinderfella? Or Harry Potter, for the mark on his head and the cupboard-under-the-stairs thing? Nah, he’s Tipper. Interesting, that the cat turned completely white. He has a black undercoat, and I was wondering if he would turn black!

          Ah, you’re so young. That was the title of a Jerry Lewis movie, back in the day. 😉
