A Kitten’s Work is Never Done #Caturday #TipperAndChickie

HELLO! My name is CHICKIE!

I been helpin an helpin this week, like always.

Mommy an Poppy like to watch stuff on the big picture fing. It has sumpin to do wif a little black box and these little flat fings Poppy puts in it. I help him put one in sometimes.

Poppy putted a cover onna couch, and I helpded him wif it.

Sometimes, I hide inna kitchen to watch for fings to help wif.

Den I peep out to help!

Sometimes Mommy sits inna rocky chair and I hide inna hole in my castle to keep her company.

I want her to be compitaboo, so I take her shoe off for her.

Sometimes, Mommy doesn’t even know I’m helpin her. Like, she’s on this fing called a die-ate. She scoops out a little scoop of almonds and puts them in a dish, and eats one at a time all day for snacks. So I decided help, ’cause dat’s what I do. But, when she caught me sneaking almonds out of her dish, she said, “NO, CHICKIE! THAT’S TOO MUCH HELPING!” And now she keeps her almonds in a fing I can’t get into. She has trouble getting into it, too, so I’m still helping.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR ANIMALS: Do you like almonds?

    Love the pictures, too. Sometimes I wish I had enough energy for a cat, but I am barely managing to take care of myself right now, and it wouldn’t be fair to either the husband or the cat. Mostly I think I’ll enjoy YOUR cats. And my children’s cats. And maybe cats belonging to other residents here.

      You can always play Minecraft and bribe a village’s cat to follow you around.

    lmao – I know I shouldn’t laugh but the almonds made me crack up! Golli ‘helped’ me have a nap today while the power was off. Having a hot cat sitting on my stomach in a hot house cured me of that nap quick smart. Love how Chickie looks out for you. 😀

      It’s become a regular saying in this house: “I would have gotten it done sooner, but Chickie was helping me.” I think maybe Golli’s seasonal clock must be stuck on Winter?

    Chickie, you are an excellent helper. Keep up the good work! Love, Gibbs & Ziva

    PS: Stay away from the human’s food. They get mad about that stuff. Instead, demand daily cat treats and cuddles. You’ll find that those things are just as enjoyable as playing with almonds in a dish. Just sayin…

      She gets cat treats and cuddles and ALSO wants human food. At the very least, she wants to inspect it and taste it for us. SUCH a helper!

    What a weirdo cat. Eatin almonds. I’m convinced some cats really do think they’re people. Cletus with his salsa snout immediately came to mind. What kind of cats eat salsa? Or almonds?!? Oy.
    And I must say, things I can’t get into are the worst. My husband is getting VERY good at opening makeup and new tea boxes and bottles of juice. He’s practically Hercules and what would I do without him?!?

      Sara’s cat, Alexander Russianpants, begged for peas so hard I gave him one to show him that “Kitties don’t like peas.” You’re way ahead of me: He ate it and begged for more. I already knew that poodles like fruit, but I didn’t know cats liked peas! Only Al, though.

        Some cats are weird, even for cats! Catticus eats peas! So far as I can tell, he eats all legumes! When I give puppy her beans, I first let Catticus pick at them. She hates that, and waiting on him, but it’s good for her discipline 😉

          Your puppy eats beans? I mean, so many beans that they’re her beans?

    Ahh your cat is beautiful. I used to have a beautiful cat but soon found out I was allergic (happily rehomed close by). I so wish I wasn’t.

      I got my white cat because his little boy’s mother turned out to be allergic. I share pictures of Tipper and the little boy’s grandmother shows them to him, so he knows his kitty is loved and well cared for.
