Chickie Most Helpful #Caturday #TipperAndChickie

HELLO! My name is CHICKIE!

I was very busy this week, helping Mommy with All The Things!

She moved all our toys from the front room, where she used to sit, to the back room, where Poppy used to sit and she sits now, so we prentended they new toys and played with them.

Mommy watches this show about baking, and she baked some bread. There’s this thing called “kneading,” that’s like when us cats “make biscuits” with our paws, so I helped her out and did some.

I think I was appoza do it before it got cooked and put into a bag to give #1 Sister, but I did it. Mommy was so proud, she kept that loaf and gave away a different one.

My poor Mommy lost this great toy, and I found it for her. It was stuck inside a book! Silly Mommy!

When #4 Sister comes over, she likes to play wif me and make Mommy laugh, so I play back.

Sometimes, I find my own toys. Mommy doesn’t like for me to play with these shiny, puffy ones.

She takes those away from me. She says, “Here–Why don’t you play with the Blue Snake, instead? Oh, no! It’s a snake! It’s a snake! Get it!” It’s really just a piece of blue material, but Mommy thinks it’s a snake.

So I get it.

In other news, Tipper snuck out the front door and wouldn’t come back. So Mommy went to the back door and called him, and he came. He’s so weird.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR ANIMALS: Have you ever helped with the cooking?



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.

          Oh, yes. I liked that, too. You can just imagine how emphatic my language of appreciation was. πŸ˜€

            One of the first times I was pet sitting for our daughter, her boys noticed the Velcro strap on the power cord for my laptop. It was installed at the factory, so there was no way to easily remove it. I ended up cutting it off and giving it to them.

    Very gracious of you to prentend. Shows good upbringing (that’s different upbringing from the hairballs, silly.)

    You have been busy, Chickie, especially with kneading the bread. Um, next time maybe keep the claws in? Just a thought. Oh and don’t worry about Tipper. He probably thinks that door is the magic door. My boyz like going out the magic door too. I think they’re expecting it to be Narnia outside. When they realise it’s not, they come back in. πŸ™‚
