Hi, there! I’m Tipper Allen, and guess what?
I found another toy! It used to belong to Poppa. He used it to put healing powder on his nose when his nose got too much sun. I poked around in his little room and found it. Momma says I can keep it, because she likes to see it. She says she bought it for him inna makeup department.
Momma cleaned out our water cooler this morning and slopped water ALL OVER HERSELF! It was SO FUNNY! She said all kinds of words she won’t let us use.
I was thinking of my late Aunt Sweetie Pie. She lived with us for a few months after Granny died and before Sweetie Pie got the cancers, and she taught me a lot! Yesterday was the first time I used any of her advice.
I think she would have been proud of me, don’t you?
But Momma doesn’t get mad at me. She says how could she be mad at a little glowing angel? Thanks, Mr. Golden Sun!

How could anyone be mad at you, Tipper?
MiMi likes to plop and roll down the stairs. She only goes one or two steps in front of us, so we have to stop or gingerly step around her. I do use some of mommy’s words when she does that too many times.

Sweetie Pie used to get underfoot like she got paid for it. And Munchkin would knock me over to get down to the food bowl. At least mine tend not to do that.

Gosh..you really do glow, Tipper. I can tell you keep yourself super clean. Maybe that little brush-toy can help you do it!
I’m glad you’re taking Sweetie Pie’s advice. She was a nice cat and we miss her. -hugs-

Sweetie Pie hissed and ran every time Tipper got near her. When when she was sick and couldn’t get away, Tipper … Well, Tipper laid down near her and put his paw on hers. <3

Aaah. I have such a lump in my throat. Tipper has always been a kind little person. Hugs to you both.

I’d be a cat, if it weren’t for the writing thing. But you can’t always get a good human – and yours did.

Tipper is so pretty 🙂 And lucky! We have to lock up Moo’s paintbrushes while the dry and we used to have a cat who absconded with makeup sponges, so I am not surprised Tipper enjoys his new toy!

Tipper loves anything soft and fluffy. If I get him a toy with a feather on it, he holds the toy down and grooms the feather until it falls off all soggy. He wants a kitten. Well, he had Chickie, but he wants a kitten that doesn’t beat him up all the time.
