Tipper the Helper #Caturday

Hi, there! I’m Tipper Allen, and guess what? I’m a big helper! I inspect and sniff everything, and I check all the doors and windows so deers and squirrels and stuff don’t get in. I patrol the whole house, especially the basement, and I eat bugs. Sometimes I bring them — or parts of them — to Momma and Poppa, because they should know what’s hiding down there.

You already know that I write Momma’s blog post for her on Caturday, but did you know I help her out when she’s writing stories and stuff? I’m practically a collabugator. –Momma says I mean collaborator, but that collabugator sounds more like it. I make up good words!

Here I am, working hard so Momma can come make the Red Dot run.

The other day, I helpded Momma put sheets on the bed.

I can’t wait ’til next year, when she does this again!

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Whoa!!! The ‘Like’ button appeared. It must be something Tipper did. I prefer “collabugator” too. I think it better describes the actions of the people in those groups.

    Great job Tipper!

      Tipper threatened to go to “the WordPress store” and bite everybody on the ankles if the Like button didn’t come back. So a lady from Customer Service emailed me and told me to uninstall and reinstall Jetpack, and BOOM! There it was. 🙂

    Tipper is so cute 🙂
    Clara and Catticus like to watch me make the bed, and they like to watch Sadie sort her crate, but my Cletus, like your Tipper, likes to be INVOLVED. Heh. Collabugators! 😛

      Tipper makes me laugh so often! When he grabbed the corner of the sheet and took off toward the corner of the bed, it killed me. Am I too easily amused?

      If he would stop using my arms, hands, legs, and feet as chew toys, THAT would be helpful! 😀
