The Fourth of July is quickly approaching and Mittens thought he might get away with going costume-less this year. Wrong! As usual, Grandma’s provided some horrific little number for Mitty to model. He’s not interested in looking like Evel Knievel, and he feels like a treat-eating contest would be an excellent way to demonstrate his toughness. Drunk Patty’s boyfriend even offered to help Mittens train. With the help of a professional competitive eater, how could he go wrong? Then Mom decides to pull the Grandma card. No fair!
As if that weren’t the worst ever, Stumpy has overtaken Mitty’s “vintage” ginger ale box, and there’s no alarm system in the house. What’s to stop a thief from breaking in and burglarizing his new catnip cigar? So much stress, so little time.
Here’s what’s happening in Mitten’s world this holiday week.
