Chickie the Caretaker #Caturday #TipperAndChickie

HELLO! My name is CHICKIE!

Poppy didn’t tell me to take care of Mommy before he Went Away, but I know he would want me to. So I do.

I guard out the window, so no bad cats or bugs or birds can come in.

I guard her jewelry that she puts out to sort through. Tipper sniffs it, but I guard it.

TIPPER: You were sniffing it, too!

Pictures, or it didn’t happen.

I tunnel under the tablecloth, to make sure everything is okay under there.

Most impawtent, I taste her tea, to make sure it’s sweet enough for my sweet Mommy.

We all take care of each other, ’cause that’s what fambly do.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR ANIMALS: How do you take care of your hoomans?



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.

    Chickie! You’ll get addicted to caffeine. Can’t believe you like tea. I mean I know you’re doing it for your Momma, but still. Btw was it sweet enough?

    “Pictures, or it didn’t happen.” – That made me laugh. Our animals do take care of us. Maddie just took me for a walk.
