Hey there all my furry friends. Hope you guys are having a great week!
TODAY, I WOULD LIKE TO TELL YOU A STORY ABOUT A CAT!
Maybe we have left you with the impression that this household is anti-feline. This is NOT TRUE. We wish to dispel that impression. Mom and the Boss love cats, but Us dogs merely loooooove to chase them!
The truth is that Mom has quite a severe allergy to kitty-cats. She loves them, but unfortunately cannot stroke them. Doing this will result in horrible welts and her eyes will itch terribly. Her contact lenses have a habit of popping out when she is close to any kitty.
Despite this, it is interesting to note that mom's first pet in this big city was a Cat...whom she called:
She purchased the little kitten in a small back-alley pet shop in the centre of the city. She brought this little kitten home and within 24 hours it was running up and down her curtains, across the rails and was stalking Mom and the Boss endlessly. Mom soon realised that she had an allergy to this tiny little creature. The more she tried to overcome this allergy, the more it flared up.
Nothing helped with her affliction, but thank goodness she could indeed LIVE in the same house as TINNY. She merely couldn't TOUCH her. The Boss soon became Tinny's slave, whilst Mom was continually given a look of utter mistrust. Nevertheless, Tinny lived with the Boss (and Mom)for 15 years and died in 1994.
She was a strange cat...a true 'Alley Cat', who'd bring in mice (or shrews or lizards),in the middle of the night, and drop them on the bed for the Boss to eat. (he-he)Strangely too Mom and the Boss never heard her purr, despite endless hours being stroked and loved.
Well, as a result of this experience with Tinny in their household, Mom wrote a poem - in 1994 - which she appropriately entitled:
ODE TO CAT!
