|As The World Purrs Episode 9
Oh what a week this has been! I, Pepper do solemnly swear that this is the “Pick on Pepper Week!” Firstly, I was so excited about my ladylove Sugar’s recovery from the brink of death that I nuzzled and loved on her until Mommy yelled “Pepper! Leave that little girl alone!” I looked up at her with my best “Who me?” look and would have pulled it off except that I had white Sugar fur sticking out on both sides of my mouth. This was not such a bad thing to happen but wouldn’t you know, it didn’t stop there! Thistle knocked the bottle of Rescue Remedy off the counter and it shattered. She took off like a kitten with a feather tied to her tail and I went to investigate the damage. Auntie came in and saw the shattered bottle and saw me sniffing around. You guessed it! I got blamed! Then to make matters worse Rascal was in the cat condo in Mommy and Daddy’s room. This by itself is nothing to be concerned about. The thing is, she was shadowboxing the car headlights on the wall. Thump, bang, scratch and yowl, she was having a good time. The problem was, it was 2 AM and Daddy was trying to sleep! So I jumped up on the condo and chased her down, but by then both Mommy and Daddy were awake and guess who they saw on the condo? Me! Mommy yelled and Daddy threw one of the small pillows at me! I bolted and knocked the condo over. It fell on the floor with a resounding thud, knocking stuff off the dresser in the process. Sugar was in the middle of the condo and was thrown to the floor, Ginger was on the dresser and nearly got beaned, Spice came running into the room and swatted me! Pumpkin ran and hid and Mommy spent almost an hour trying to find him. Thistle and Cinnamon were the only two that weren’t involved. Cinnamon is still under quarantine in the OFFICE and Thistle was sleeping in Aunties room and slept through the whole thing. Later that day, I tried to let Mommy know that I was innocent and please do not be angry with me. So I went to her and put out my paw to get her attention and delicately tapped her knee with one claw. She jumped and squeaked, knocking the hassock over and dumped me unceremoniously to the floor “Pepper! You bad cat!” Sugar, my ladylove, laughed at me and said that my reputation of being a “Goodie 4 Paws” was in serious jeopardy, Spice pounced on me and rolled me over onto my back. Rascal charged at me and hissed (she’s such a potty mouth)! Even Ginger glared at me and he is such a lover, he never has a cross word to say to anyone. Then to make matters worse Thistle chased me under the bed, I think she wanted to play but I wasn’t in the mood. Especially since Thistle pull the old “knock something off the counter and blame Pepper for it”, twice now! The second time it was the little plastic cups and even though I didn’t jump to the floor to inspect the damage, she took off and left me sitting on the counter looking very guilty. So now, here I am, hiding under the bed, hoping this week will end…..soon! I know they all love me but Geeesh give a cat a break!
