Chickie Makes A Difference #Caturday #TipperAndChickie

HELLO! My name is CHICKIE!

Mommy says she and Poppy got married forty years ago today. I think she’s teasing! Tipper is five, and nothing could be older than that!


Anyway, Mommy showed me my first picture with Poppy.

I didn’t know we were going to turn out to be best buddies, but we did!

Mommy took this picture of me behind the chair Poppy used to sit in.

Mommy says I make her feel better when she’s sad. Sometimes I try on purpose to make her laugh.

I like it when Mommy says, “Do you remember when you and Poppy” did this or that. Sometimes I do bemember, but sometimes it’s a new memory because I forgotted it from when it happened. Hearing stories about little me is fun! I’m like, “Awww, what a cute little kitty that was! Oh, yeah — IT WAS ME!”

So we’re having a happy day today, bemembering good stuff. :3

A WRITING PROMPT FOR ANIMALS: Do you try to make your hooman laugh?



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.

    I’m sure you miss him, Chickie. I miss hearing those stories, so it’s good to remember them, too.

    Ah Chickie, you were so little! I remember how your Poppy would build things for you, and Tipper, but I think mostly for you. Tell your Mum that we’re thinking of her today too. -hugs-

          Feeling weirdly good, and all the better for your asking. Maybe it was getting past that first “round number” anniversary, but I now seem to be in the zone of appreciating all I had instead of aching for it. I was told that would happen by one of my widowed friends, and I’m hoping it’s true and not just momentary. Lots of wonderful memories, of incidents large and minute. 🙂

            -huge hugs- Anything I say will sound trite. Charlie was such a good man, and I’m glad you can remember the good times with less pain. Please share some of those good memories with us.

    Great memories, even the ones she doesn’t remember. I’m thinking she probably triggers lots of them.

    Happy anniversary!
