Mooky, Come In!
Mooky Girl, come home!
I've been calling you every hour since mid-night!
What ARE you doing?
Hanging out with your friends?
(You have friends?!)
You're wandering way too far
and you're not even a male!
You must be hungry!
I'm shaking the dry food box!
Can't you hear it? !
I thought cats had superb hearing?
Why didn't you chase that string
I dragged in your little Mooky Pansy Face
Instead, you jumped with a twist
and ran away
and I refuse to play that game, Mooks!
Well, I'm trying so hard not to worry
I'm trying to be mad at you
but it's not working!
PLEASE COME HOME!
(So I can get some sleep!)
……..6:00 a.m. and no sightings…..
I'm e-mailing my friend, sharing my woes,
and something tells me to check
and there you come running
up the steps,
zipping in by me,
right to your food bowl,
without even giving me a backward glance!
I noticed you had a smug but hungry look
on your little face,
and yes, you have won again!
You got to stay out way past Kitty Curfew!
you are dead asleep
on top of the cat condo
"Queen of the Night" !
I am still trying to be angry at you
but as I go by,
I tickle your belly,
you make a high-pitched little kitten noise,
and I melt,
forgiving you, once again!
Mrs. L, frustrated but very relieved!
Mooky’s Side or… The REAL STORY! (Mooky’s Rebuttal!)
First of all, I'm NOT making my words go all the way down the middle of the page like she does! What's up with that anyway? (She's far too centred.)
And, yes, I do have friends! Lots of 'em!
They think I'm cool too! (Not to mention pretty, with my tiger stripes and leopard spots!)
We do important kitten work, like chasing mice, although none of us have actually caught one yet.
We're training! And good prowling just has to take place in the dark.
And of course I can hear it, you idiot, but do you really think I'm going to fall for that shaking the kitty kibble trick?
As for the following the string tactic....how lame! You insult me!
I'm way past that! I'm almost a year old! I have real live things to track and terrorize now!
You were worried, were you? Big surprise! You worry about EVERYTHING! Relax!
Yes, I've won again. Who ever heard of a curfew for kitties defined as, "when the dark night clouds come"!
Think about it, old girl...that's when we cats just start getting pumped!
Me? "Queen of the Night"? Well, if the crown fits.
You know you can't ever be angry with me so stop trying. I'm just too darn cute!
And I know how to work it, baby! Got those irresistible kitten sounds down pat! Always works! "You're melting, you're melting!" And "I'm sleeping, I'm sleeping!"……
Until tonight that is...!
Okay where's the centre button just so I know....
Man it’s a tough climb up to the condo! DO NOT DISTURB!
(Paws off all you other crazy kitties!)
