Mittens Speaks!

Tap, Tap
Is this here thing on?

Ya'll, I may have to talk quick-like as the Lady of the House left this here contraption on the porch for a minute as she toodled in to the big house.

Woa! What's That?! ::Looks around cautiously:: Just a lil ole Finch. Silly me. 

The Lady Of The House tells me I'm an Easy Startler. I suppose that's true enough. For years I've been pals with the Man Of The House but my friendship with the LOTH has been a slow starter. It's cause for years she was protectin Lady Fin from lil ole me. She'd whoop and holler and chase me off, scaird I'd harm the lil lady. I'm a gentle mancat and I only fight when I need to, so she was worried for nothin.

Can ya see my massive paws? I got thumbs I tell ya!
My lasers look intense here, but I'm lettin LOTH pet me nowdays. Long as she's packin the chow anyway. Well I better scoot, she's coming back with that flashy thing again and I'm not a fan. I hope I can work up to meeting Lady Fin some day, right now she just hollers from behind the screen door. 

Talk to ya'll later!

Mittens

PS. LOTH had the hardest time findin my voice. I'm a soft spoken, sweet but strong, cat so she decided on a fine southern gentleman. I think it suits me.

  1. Nice to meet you! I've often wished I had thumbs, since humans seem to make such a big deal out of them.

    If I were you, I'd be a little careful making friends with the humans of the house. Once they think you are down with them, you will never be able to get away from that confounded flashy box.

  12. It is very nice to meet you, Mittens! It sounds like you're a real gentlecat, but promise me that if you meet the gorgeous Lady Fin, you'll be sweet. I don't want to have to travel all that distance to defend her honor!

  17. Hi Mittens, we thinks the Southern Gentleman voice suits you. Maybe your Mom should channel Rhett Butler cause we sense you are a charmer. Artemisia is swooning.

  24. How do you do Mr Mittens. I'm charmed to meet you and your mighty poly paws. Now I had the impression that you were a lost sort of soul, homeless et al. But I see you are mighty, muscled up and rather glossy. So dear chap, I give you many props for convincing the LOTH and MOTH otherwise, ensuring they provide you with regular vittles.
