Hi, there! I’m Tipper Allen, and guess what?
Chickie and I kept a secret all May, because we were writing stories on Caturday for Momma, but now I can tell you. Momma says she thinks everybody guessed the secret because of our stories, but I don’t see how they could, because we use fake names for the cats in our stories. So here’s our announcement.
MOMMA GOT A NEW CAT! Her name is Adi, and she’s a Scottish Fold and she’s three years old, and Chickie and I don’t like her one little bit!
She’s big and super-fluffy and she won’t fight AT ALL. And sometimes she lies down in the catbird seat!
Momma doesn’t know why I don’t like Adi, because I like kittens. In fact, this morning Momma caught me grooming a piece of my foam mattress like it was a kitten.
I tell her that the difference is that Adi isn’t a kitten. I’m not even sure she’s a cat!
At least Chickie and I don’t fight anymore.
A funny thing happened! First, I have to tell you that one of the deer cats had a baby. Momma didn’t get a picture of it, but it’s all spotty. Here’s the momma.
Well, yesterday that bad Boone cat came down to make faces at me through the window, and the deer chased him away! She chased him out of the front yard and through the side yard and into the woods! Yay, deer cat!
Momma says we’d better get used to Adi, because she isn’t going anywhere. She says she has plenty of love for all of us, and plenty of food.
Maybe I’ll let the deer cat in and see if she’ll chase ADI away!
