As the Paw Swipes

This morning Mom and I were awakened at the crack of dawn by the sound of loud cat voices outside the bedroom window. It was a lot of fussing, but it didn't sound like a fight.

Naturally Mom thought of Mittens and she headed outside to see if our honorary Yard Cat was in trouble. He has a habit of inviting friends over. She saw Mittens on the back fence, and as soon as he saw her, he ran right for her. Mom gave him lots of pets to make sure he wasn't hurt, but he kept making angry cat noises. As did I from the other side of the screen door. Mom was sure she heard yet a third angry voice.

Mom realized the other cat must still be around, so she started to walk towards the wall to look for it. As soon as she walked close all the voices got louder. 

The Chubby Tabby was hiding in the brush on the wall! The Chubby Tabby and Mittens have appeared together before and Mittens acted like he had no knowledge of said Tabby.

Anyway this morning, every time Mom would get close to the Chubby Tabby's location both Mittens and the Chubby Tabby would get loud. Finally the Chubby Tabby decided to take a hike and when she stood up Mom noticed she was very chubby, and had a real swagger belly.

Mom thinks the Chubby Tabby is either still with kittens or recently had kittens. Mom thinks Mittens is fixed, so perhaps he just invited the young mom over to the yard for some spare snacks.

We have a pretty safe and secure yard and if I was a cat... er... heh, heh, ::Ghostwriter reinserts plausible suspension of furry disbelief:: ...

Mittens must think our yard would be a great place to have kittens. To which I say No! If the universe were to have a kitten arrive at our door, I think Mom would be completely incapable of saying no to it.

Dear Cod, let the Chubby Tabby just be a big eater. Hopefully this story does not continue...

  4. Mom says we'll wait to see what happens. If kitties appear, maybe we'll see photos. Mom's had writer's block so we've been spotty too.

  11. Our tabby is chubby, and he isn't with kitten, so there is still hope for you Finny.

    But our mum is warming up her SQUEEEEE, just in case.

  12. I agree Fin: There is NO need for any additional kittens in the house! However, if you do get one please show us a picture-my Mom would love to see it.

  14. My sister Ginger is the biggest fattest...I mean well padded girl tabby in the world...and she is most definitely not with kittens...unless the kittens have been in her belly for the entire time she's lived here! Ha!

    Sorry to upset you Finny, but we think it would be cool if kittens were born in your yard because we know your mom wouldn't be able to say no to them.

    Purrs,

  15. Maybe it is a food belly. But hey Fin, you said you are a GrannyCat so maybe you're gonna be a Grandma!

  16. uh oh - sounds like trouble. Keep us posted. Does your mom know if anyone owns these kitties?

  17. I'm pretty chubby, and there's no WAY I'm haffing kittens. It may be just a food belly. Here's hoping!

  18. Oh Fin, it might be fun to have some little kittens to boss around. Just think of all the things and tricks you could teach them such as how to wake up Mom. But we do hope that Chubby is not pregnant. Can't wait for Chapter 2.
