Leading the Way

My brother Jack and I have succeeded in winning everyone over (even Hetty Miep, although she’d never admit it). Most of all, we love playing with our brother Artie! Sometimes Hilda will groom me a little or play with me for a couple of seconds; but she is easily frightened, so she mostly just likes to watch. I’ll have to work on building up her confidence. Even though I’m small, I won’t hesitate to take on Jack or Artie! And I overheard my female human say she thinks I’m as smart as Garp (my older brother who died before I was born). I even have a spot on my skull that is very bony—just like Garp’s head! I also have a cute cowlick over that spot. When I’m being especially sassy, my female human likes to call me Ginger Snap or Sassafrass! Humans say the silliest things.

My brother Elvin told Jack that we’re going to see Uncle Dr. Kraft on Tuesday so we can get microchips and Jack’s grapes can be harvested. Jack was pretty excited about it—like we’re going on a picnic (or probably in Jack’s mind, an all you can eat buffet). I know what it really means, though. My sister Hilda said that Uncle Dr. Kraft will pinch us until we get really sleepy. While we’re sleeping, Jack’s grapes will be harvested and I’ll get my ladygardenectomy, so we don’t grow any weeds. Then when we wake up, we’ll each have a microchip (which is a special GPS system we can use in case our humans get lost) and we’ll get to go home. Well, Jack will get to go home that afternoon. I have to stay the night to finish up our paperwork. Jack doesn’t have to stay since he can’t read very well yet. I’ll have to wait to tell Jack about my overnight stay. He’ll probably get scared when he finds out that he’ll have to sleep by himself for a night. He might be bigger than me, but he depends on me to be the leader and explorer!

Mom kind of wishes I didn't have to stay because the vet clinic will be empty overnight, but she suspects I'd probably move around too much if I came home with Jack.

my stars girl, I wish you didn't have to stay overnight either...

purrsonally I would demand your own private room to come home to; a nice quiet spot in a secluded area free from the stress and trials of everyday life and a bell next to your bed which will be your mom and dad's bed because they've agreed to sleep on the floor while the rest of the clowder is free to roam the entire house and so like all you have to do is ring the bell for assistance....

you know, change the tv station, get some food, I need some water, fluff these pillows, I want to sleep in the bathroom right now, snacks would be great right about now....sigh...why the list goes on and this is just for the first 15 minutes of seclusion and privacy !!

hugs girl from dai$y

I've always heard that "Sallys" are the smartest kitties ever!

Oh, yes! We Sallys are definitely the smartest!
