Caturday: Chickie in the Sack

HELLO! My name is CHICKIE!

It’s cold outside, which means the furnace runs a lot, which means it’s always warm from warm air blowing. It makes me sleepy. It must make Mommy excited, though, because she opens an envelope once a month and looks at some numbers written on it and screams. Then she turns down this thing on the wall she calls a termascat.

My favorite place to sleep is on a blankie Mommy puts on the bed just for me. I take a baff first.

Then I block out Mommy’s reading lamp.

When Tipper comes to bed, I have to wake up and remind Mommy of who’s the cute one. (This is my blue blankie. I have a blue one and a brown one.)

#4 Hooman Sister likes to take pictures of me, just like Mommy. Mommy likes this one.

Mommy says #4 Hooman Sister’s camera is better than Mommy’s, but it doesn’t matter, because I’m cute no matter who takes my picture!

A WRITING PROMPT FOR ANIMALS: What’s your favorite sleeping place?



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 do, too! I don’t know why a cat in a bag is so appealing, but it is.

        We have a little figurine of a cat with his head in a brown paper bag. It’s just adorable.
