Hi, there! I’m Tipper Allen, and guess what? I did an amazing thing this week!
First, I hafta tell you that Momma and Poppa let me get on the low and soft furniture, like the window seat, the chairs, and the couches. They don’t allow me to get on the high and hard furniture, like the tables, the counters, and the cabinets. Silly people! I’m not a little baby kitten! High stuff doesn’t scare me, and hard stuff won’t hurt my paws!
So, when they aren’t looking, I get up on the high and hard stuff so I can ‘splore and ‘spect and ovverwise imbestibate.
Well, then, the other morning, Momma heard a loud crash. Here’s what time it was.
This is what she found.
Momma said, “What did you break?” She swept up the pieces, looked at them, and said, “This is a Corelle cup! Corelle ware is supposed to be unbreakable! How did you even do that? I can believe this!”
When I felt that cup go off the shelf, I was afraid she would be mad. But when I heard her say how amazing it was, I poked my head out.
Momma is never mad at me for long. But she did say that if I got a Corelle ware splinter in my paw, I’d understand why she doesn’t want me prowling where the dishes are. I think hoomans shouldn’t leave their dishes where they could get knocked off by a super sneaky imbestibator.
