ALL I REALLY NEED TO KNOW…



I LEARNED IN KINDERGARTEN...

 
Awwww, that’s not true, because I haven’t even gone to Kindy-garden yet. I’m still too little, but seriously, all I really need to know, I learned from my brother Hurricane!

Now, THAT’S true!

In the crack of dawn I recognize to get breakfast REAL early, because every now and then I get a slight rumbly in my tummy prior to the alarm buzzing. So, Hurricane taught me to plop myself down on Big Daddy or Nee Nee’s pillow. They’ll gaze at me to see who is disturbing their slumber then I swiftly give them a lickie-licky on their cheek. Yep, works every time; thanks for that tip big brother.

Next, he teached learned educated me on how to greet my family at the entry after their day out, which by the way, I don’t understand why they leave us. I’m certain if they knew what we get ourselves into during this time, they’d reconsider…HeeHee!

But whoever hears the ‘click’ of the door we hastily leap off the couch as if we had never been on it to begin with because really, we aren’t suppose to be on the sofa, so SHhhh, don’t tell anyone. Hurricane will grab a toy, any toy and I clutch my security string and we sprint to the back entrance. While Hurricane dances, knocks everyone over and smacks his tail into the wall with all his exuberance, I sit calmly like a lady, wait to be caressed and conversed with…ahhh, this feels marvelous!

I go behind everyone through the house, dodge in between their legs as we descend the stairs and nearly trip them, although I don’t mean to. I sit patiently and gawk for just a parcel of food and take a seat at the back door to go outside. But heck, no one ever lets ME go out to engage in recreation! DARN, but I’m still operating on that angle.

The most significant thing I’ve been trained to carry out if I want to claim a first-class spot to sleep, it is imperative I climb on the comforter as they are brushing their teeth and tucking Little Daddy into bed. They say prayers and sing so I have ample time to park myself right in the middle, bathe and feign sleep so no one will disturb me.

They utter, ‘awww, look at Angel-Kitty!’ so I keep my eyes closed while they scootch, scootch scotch ever so carefully under the covers to not disturb me from my slumber.

Ahhh, this is the life.

Thanks Hurricane for teaching loving me~

Very nice, where would many of us be without our pets? I fight for covers and my place in bed all night.I have 2 new ones out in the stable, but they aren't the petting type yet.They just showed up.That puts me at 4 in the house who play in a fenced in yard and 4 out at the stable.

Shouldn't Little Bitty Kitty be going to kittygarten? Sooo cute. I love animals. How can one resist them?

Best,

Kea said...

You've learned a lot already!

Our Derry will give you a tip, though, on how to get your humans out of bed quickly in the morning: Insert a claw up their nostril. Works every time!

Angel-Kitty I'm thinking you landed in a softer spot than you could ever have imagined! Life is just one big comforter for you. Yeah! YOU! with that sweet little fuzz face in the picture!

Jeanie said...

What a great learner your kitty is. They do learn how to take over and be in charge of us.

Rita said...

Love your post and life can be so good.

How sweet! This is so true; they learn quickly how to insinuate themselves into our lives, don't they. Love'em!

Kittie Howard said...

Angel-Kitty, you're soooo pretty I just wanna hug you!

We had 4 running around, got them when they were 10 weeks old from a breeder of Burmese. This post takes me back to them being under my feet when I was trying to cook. When they got the urge to start running, I would have to yell for hubby to watch out, here they come. It sounded like thunder as they got older. Talk about a 4 cat night, under the coveres, who needed a heating blanket.

Your post brought back some lovely memories. Take care of that sweetie, what a perfect angel face you have there. Give that baby lots of kisses from me.

Patty Ann said...

Oh yes, they are so very good at wriggling their way right into your heart.

Brian said...

I love it! Learning is very impawtant!!!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

HA HA.... Even though Nee Nee and Big Daddy probably do NOT agree, it appears as if Hurricane is teaching Angel Kitty all of the best things to do in order to get the attention they want and need.....

Congrats to Angel Kitty for winning the hearts of Nee Nee and Big Daddy....
Hugs,
Betsy

Munir said...

Aren't they so lucky. I used to pretend to be asleep so I did not have to turn the lights off when I was little. No luck, I had to take my hand out of my blanket and turn the lights off. Why can't we be lazy sometimes?

Penny said...

Angel Kitty,
You are so lucky you have your older brofur Hurricane to tech you what you need to know.
When I was little and first came to my house - I had a big brofur too. His name was Dale. But he has gone on to the rainbow bridge and I am all alone. I sure miss him a lot.

Purrs,
Genghis Khat

What a little cutie-pie! Isn't is funny how we do the scootch so as not to disturb our furbabies:) I love that!

Thanks for the smiles. You are so cute:)

Hugs,
Deb

Ginny said...

So great that you have such a nice big brother to show you the ropes!! And I know you are a quick learner!

Daisy said...

Such a cute post, Tracy! Thanks for the smile. Love the picture too. :)

Arkansas Patti said...

You go Angel Kitty, you have no need for kindergarten, you are all ready at the head of the class.
Really cute post little gal.

Mamma has spoken said...

Watch out kitty, your brother could teach you some tricks that will get you into some big trouble. Like eating out of the garbage can, drinking from toliets, taking food from the table, or my all time favorite, getting on top of the table when you know you shouldn't be there at all.

Happy Days said...

Oh, I really enjoyed that. How sweet and cute. Nothing sweeter than kittens!! ...debbie

Mildred said...

What a sweet face! This was such fun to read and so much like every cat I know!!! Have a wonderful day.

dulcy said...

A VERY familiar scenario! Two on the bed can make for an interesting night. Yes.... Iris and Willow stake out their space claims just prior to our retiring to bed. We then try and find comfort in the space they have graciously left for us!

DoanLegacy said...

Pets are the best thing in everyone's life! We learn so much from our pets..

Bobbi said...

Oh, you are so adorable! And learning so much. Angel kitty is perfect for you. Sleep sweetly, Angel Kitty...

The Words Crafter said...

That's a good big brother. Now come here so I can give you a cuddle, you're so cute!!!!

maggie's garden said...

Awww....but they're so cute! That's one cute ball of fur!

Myne Whitman said...

The kitten looks soo cute, and the way you wrote that too, sweet. :)

BTW, I'm launching my second book next week and need all the help I can get. Please see details on my blog, I'm open for guest posts, interviews or giveaways. Thanks!

Jim said...

Sweet! Nothing like a kitty! Right Tracy? We were just saying that today......maybe time to look around.

Julie Musil said...

Awwww, how cute! What is it about our spoiled animals, where they hop up on our bed and fall asleep right in the middle?

Stacey Dawn said...

Adorable!!

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

This is just tooooo darn cute and I am so happy I did not miss it. lol
It looks like Hurricane has taught his friend well. They do learn fast don't they.
Instead of lick on the cheek I get a big slap on the cheek and several times until I wake up completely.
Thanks for doing this adorable post
Love ya
Maggie

Watch and learn, Grasshopper! Big kitties will show you the ropes. ;)

Susan Fields said...

Every morning when I come downstairs, I hear a commotion as my dog drags herself off the couch. She thinks she's so sneaky!

Ingrid King said...

Ah yes, the "cute kitten in the center of the bed" ploy. Works every time!

IT sounds like you have a very good teacher. Those are all important lessons that you've learned.
