At Least Someone Appreciates Us!

Mommy has been very tired lately, and sort of crabilated (she says it's because she's so busy and hasn't had a chance to enjoy her summer). So Bert and I sat outside and really thought about what we could get Mommy to make her feel better. And then - lucky us - the answer ran right by us! A big juicy mouse!

Well, I won't lie kitties, it took a bit of time for us to catch that mouse, but eventually we did - all the while Mommy was sitting on the porch saying "don't kill that poor mouse". Now I'd like to say that we brought it right over to Mommy, but I did play with it for a bit (I thought I should make sure it was good and dead) - and again Mommy kept chatting at us "stop playing with that poor dead thing". Then Mommy went back inside and said "don't you bring that gross thing in here" - I'm sure she really meant was "I'd be delighted if you would leave it for me to almost step on in the morning" - so we did!

When we heard her scream in the morning - we knew she'd found our present. Somehow I don't think all our efforts were appreciated!

The good news is that the super hunter himself - our friend Skeeter gave us an award. I'm not sure if it's because of my hunting skills or not, but we sure are honored!


We'd like to pass it on to young Fagin (we're not sure if he's had his own award yet), another mighty hunter Goldie and his pacifist sister Shade, another couple of serious predators Eric & Flynn and all the Tough A** Torties.

Well... it's not that your Mommy did not appreciate the present. Maybe she would prefer it to be wrapped up with colorful wrapping paper to brighten up her days. :P

Congratulations on your award. How come your mom didn't like your gift? Our mom probably wouldn't have liked it either, but she would have at least made a show of praising us.

Nothing says "I love you Mommy" like a dead mouse!

Well done!!!! Very well done!!!

That would make the sun shine on a cloudy day for sure! Your Mom is so lucky to have you all to take such good care of her.

Here it feels like Fall is around the corner so I can appreciate your Moms cranky feelings. Hopefully she'll feel better soon and can RELAX!!

Thanks so much for the award too!

Shade is happy you included her even though she is anti hunting and all.

Purrs, Goldie

Well done on catching the big juicy mouse. Mum tells us well done if it is dead, but if it is still alive she tells us to take it outdoors. Don't know why, we thought she liked playing "Get the mouse out from under the fridge."
Concats on your award and thanks furr passing it on to us.

Excellent Hunting! We left Mom a gift last week. By the time she found Mr. Rude Lizard he was a mere mummified skeleton of himself.

Excellent work, Pearl! You know that if you were feeling down and crabilated, if someone were to bring you a mouse it would perk you right up. So you were just doing unto your mommy as you would have others do unto you!

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Hmph, dey never apreeshiate our efforts.

The Cat Realm said...

Congratulation on the award AND the mouse! We wish our staff would be scared by our presents - but it seems we can just not make them scream... when they see us with prey they actually try and steal it from us!!!! And then they DO NOT EAT IT but set it free again. I will never understand humans!!!
