Hey, It's me, Angel-Kitty!


Did you think I’d ever get back on this contraption? GeezLouise, I do declare! My brother Hurricane’s writing his memoirs and selling his book! Hurricane-this and Hurricane-that! I now see that being the baby of the family is truly going to impact my self-esteem and I have a gripe. Well, maybe not one, but two or maybe more: I'll keep you posted!


Hurricane walks through the neighborhood and people say things like ‘Oh Hurricane, you are such a handsome boy!’ and ‘Hurricane, you can always come home with us!’ Blah, blah, blah…

Well, take him home with you PLEASE so I can get some peace from all this mumble-jumble about Hurricane. Having an older brother who is quite the STUD is damaging to my self-worth. I have to fight for every morsel of attention and every toy I own; which really, I don’t have a lot.

Did I tell you about my security string? Well, I have these special strings that I just adore. I clutch them in my mouth very daintily, I might add- through the house and WHA-LAH, instant entertainment! Nee Nee and Daddy informed me that there is one in every room of the house and that should be good enough. But hey, Hurricane has an entire basket of toys which are strewn between each room. So why are MY strings such a problem?

I’ll tell you why…that dog steals my strings and does anybody care? NOoooo!

Nee Nee even put my next favorite toy; a wadded up piece of paper (yeah, I know-I have such expensive tastes in play things!) on the end of one of my strings and hurls it across the hardwood floors. I run after it and skate across the room on my bottom; what fun! I proceed to transport it back to her and the process begins again.

UNTIL Hurricane wants to join in and then he captures my string in his mouth and slobbers all over my paper and runs under the bed hiding: CHICKEN!

‘Dang-it Hurricane! Do you have to ruin everything?

Brothers…I have one for sale if you want one! Perhaps I’ll give him to you for a string~

You are so sweet Angel-Kitty! Isn't it amazing that we spend money on store bought toys when all you kitties really want is a bit of string and a bit of paper! :)

Happy Thursday!

Ahhh Angel honey my kitty Tinkerbell knows exactly how you are feeling these days.
Tinkerbell was Queen of the North Forty until her mommy let her daughter and dog move back home for a little while. Now she is stressed to the limit just as you are ....lol
I hope things get better for both of you. Maybe you should consider writing a book too and show Hurricane what you got.
Love ya
Maggie

Cats make it sound so rough, but they get the top billing.

I can imagine that having siblings can be a real pain - I am an only furchild and I don't have to share anything - but i do get lonely sometimes. So I guess each life has it's difficulties.

Oh, I know the feeling well when the furry members roamed the house. WE sure felt left out. Dont worry Angel-Kitty, your day in the sun will come. Great toys, the best are homemade anyway.

Arkansas Patti said...

String and wadded up paper?? No wonder you feel like the step child.
Keep you humor Angel Kitty. That and your string? will get you through.
(Come on Mom, spring for a little cat nip and a fake rat at least)

Daisy said...

Such a pretty little cat. Some of the best toys are ones you create yourself. :)

Nancy said...

You are pretty easy to please, Angel-Kitty. Most cats are. Dogs can be rather needy. Wouldn't you agree? :)

Jules said...

I was wondering about you angel kitty. If you learn to fetch that paper wad Hurricane won't have nothing on you :)

This has given me a bit of a grin on a day when I needed one! :-)))!!

Lin said...

Oh, brothers are a pain. I had one too--still don't like him much. Seriously.

Do you talk to your string? My Grace talks to her toys for some reason. And if I walk in on her with her toy, she sort of gets embarrassed.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Okay--Tracy... I heard it from the horse's (I mean kitty's) mouth... When is your next book coming out???? Angel-Kitty is demanding that you write a book featuring her.... Poor neglected baby!!!!!!! Now--go get her a new string!!!!!
Hugs,
Betsy

Mamma has spoken said...

I think your cat's thoughts are really close to the real thing.

DoanLegacy said...

Wonderful story, and I enjoy it thoroughly!

Angel Kitty, you are beautiful and so creative. I love you simple taste. And I have news for you. Being the oldest isn't all it's cracked up to be either!!

Blessings, Debbie

Sandra said...

Angel Kitty I hope your book is next! Hurricane is a beautiful boy, but nothing compares to a cheap kitty!

Sierra Rose said...
