A few nights ago I needed something from Mom. So I sat in the kitchen and meowed. It was very important. I don't remember exactly but I think I might have needed a midnight snack. Problem was Mom didn't hear me, because she was sleeping. So I meowed some more. Still Mom would not get up. What's a cat to do? The next thing I always do when I need something and Mom doesn't obey is, I find some paper to tear. I like to tear little pieces out and make confetti. Next problem: I couldn't find any paper. Mom has learned to keep her good papers away from me but sometimes she lets me have some news- or wrapping paper just so I can go hog wild.
Now what? I looked around and then I saw it on the table. Mom's Good Book. Mom reads it every morning. It has a soft cover. So I tried that out. I clamped my teeth down on a corner. This book has dates in it and you read a little bit on January 1 and some on January 2 and so on. My canine tooth made a nice hole right thru the soft cover, all the way thru all the pages from January 1 to January 12. I couldn't tear any pieces out of it. It didn't make that ripping paper sound that I need to wake Mom up. So I left the Good Book alone. Mom still didn't wake up. By now I had forgotten what I needed Mom for and I went back to bed. Timo said I would be in so much trouble in the morning when Mom saw the hole in her Good Book.
Next morning Mom looked accusingly at me, after she saw the hole in the book. I said: Mom what's the big deal? January 12 is already over and you have read that part already. Mom said, I am such a lucky cat. Because my tooth only made a hole in the margin of the page and she can still read all the letters.
That reminds me of what Isaiah said a long time ago: The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever.
The Good Book now sleeps in a bag when not in use, MOL.
BOY, you gots lucky! I like tearin' papers too. I nefur teared a book.
I've been sinking my teeth into the edges of the tissue box's hole...MOL! It looks all jagged and messy!
Good thing you didn't do that to your Mom's precious reading material!
I am told the Good Book doesn't really sleep, it is too alive to sleep! Um...if its alive, meowmy, did Meitzi hear it complain when you chomped in it?
Mietz, what a good girl to only put a tooth hole in the margin of the page. You must have been on your best behavior. Maybe all of a sudden you realized it was the Good Book.
Funny how your mom knew it was your tooth mark right away!
Now that was cute I am with Pipo, mom says that the good book is a living book and so I bet you heard it make a compliant and so that is why you stopped chewing on it.

I once ate one of mommies text books for school! It was a 82$ volume of collected essays on the study of global history or something and I chomped the WHOLE corner off of it! hehehe! If she had liked the book she might have been upset... luckily she didn't. But she did have to explain why she hadn't read some of what was in the top corner of the book cause I had eateds it!
Tissue Boxes, eh Pipo? That gives me an idea.
Wow, if the Good Book is alive then I better leave it alone. It might bite me back.
Zoey, I was on my best behavior. The book is still readable. yes, she knew it was my teeth. The cover is torn a tiny little bit too. And I'm the only paper tearer in the family.
Novi, you're a good little boy because you never teared a book.
Calie, yes - sometimes Mom also calls this book The Word. So maybe it did say something to me.
Little Purrince bro - yup, next time Mom will listen when I call her.
Dude K - Okay, if you say so I'll leave the Good Book alone. I don't want God to be mad at me because He is so totally awesome and gave me a good home and He always takes care of Mom and Timo too. I would LOVE to have a job as shredder. I need to look into that.
River - that is funny. "Teacher, I can't do my homework. My cat ate my textbook. Sowwy." Her book sounds boring. Hope it tasted good.
Which book should I eat next? Chicken Soup for the Cat & Dog Lover's Soul !! Bingo
Mietzi! You are the Cat Of The Week!
See how your Good Book chewing helped you?! MOL, MOL!!
CAT OF THE WEEK CONGRATS!!
We sure hope you have a great week and a load of fun, too!
Maybe your Mom can get you some nice cardboard to sink your teeth into as a reward, MOL!
Many purrs & hugs!
