Chickie vs. Shade #Caturday #TipperAndChickie

HELLO! My name is CHICKIE! Poppy has a new name for me: Shade-killer!

I was sitting on my sitty thing, minding my own business, when the window shade started insulting me.

WHAT did you say?!?!?

So I killed it.


Poppy is usually proud of me, but he got mad at me! I didn’t know the shade was his pet! He shoulda told me he liked it!

He stopped talking to me, so I went to Mommy’s couch. I fluffed her pillow for her.

Sit here, Mommy!

She sat down, and I snuggled up to her.

I like you best, Mommy.

Tipper got in her lap, but he jumped down when he saw me.

Tipper: Momma is my hooman! You dumped her, as soon as Poppa started talking to you again!

I know, but I needed a snuggle. We could have shared.

Tipper: You needed her more than I did right then. Besides, I didn’t want Trouble Cooties to get on me.


Poppy is still mad about the shade, but he likes me again.

Oh–Mommy wants me to tell you that there’s a new Hot Flash (reallyreallyreally short story) on the Hot Flashes page of this blog. She puts a new one up every month.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR ANIMALS: Did you ever kill something you got in trouble for?

    I have to admit, Chickie did a nice job killing that shade.

    Oops. We’ll have to start calling you Aggro Kitty. 🙂 But I’m sure you and Tipper guard the house well and make sure no bad guys sneak up on your Momma and Poppy.

      No dangerous shade or piece of gravel is going to get past Chickie. And if a cat could sleep anything to death, Tipper would have us covered.

    Okay, so my parents have this orange tiger cat who’s called ROWDY ffs (Do you follow my mother on IG? You should.) and Rowdy has killed so many of Papa’s pets that Papa has gone about the house covering blinds with plexiglass and whatnot, it’s like, well it’s humorous, but we don’t tell him that.

      OMG, I’ll have to tell Charlie! That is the Funniest. Thing. Ever. I don’t follow your mother on IG. I don’t do IG much, for some reason. Probably spending too much time bingeing on Netflix mysteries. Also: I don’t know your mother’s IG handle.
