Long time readers of this blog will remember Mittens.
Mittens is a neighborhood cat Mom and Dad have fed over the years. They are quite fond of him.
Mittens showed nothing but respect for Angel Fin, I'm told. Never a hiss or a swat. So I figured we'd be chums. The first time I met Mittens (through the screen door) I squeaked out a joyful hello.
And Mittens hissed at me. I was a little shocked, but I figured I'd just surprised him. I'm sure he was expecting his friend Fin.
This morning Mom opened the door to give Mittens some food (my food by the way) and I figured it was time to introduce myself again.
Seriously? You don't want to be pals?
So there we are. I was nothing but a gentleboy to him and he is still all hiss. How do you think I can be his pal?
