Roxie, here! Today is International Cat Day and since Mom and Dad are not around I thought I’d post some cute pictures of me. Here is my latest, gorgeous head shot! It’s for my Mom’s newest blog posts. About me! “Wait a minute! You get out of here, ZuZu! I’m the oldest and I’m in charge of the computer when Mom and Dad are away! Hey, don’t touch that computer, I said, keep our paws off the computer! Ouch!”
ZuZu, here! So, this is a photo of Dad holding me when I was a tiny baby. He really loves me. Much more than Roxie. I don’t bite and I never get underfoot. Mom wrote a whole book about me, A Berkshire Tale. It’s so incredibly popular that Mom and Dad had to go up to the Berkshires this weekend to bring more books for the shops to sell. They’re running out! “Hey, stop pushing me, Roxie! I’m gonna tell Mom when she gets home!”
“You big, whiney baby, ZuZu! Move over! Look at these pictures. If Dad loves you so much, why am I always closer to him when we sit in his lap?And why do I have a special place at the counter so I can help cook? And why do I get to help Mom brush her teeth every morning? And wasn’t I the featured arrangement on the Christmas table in Dad’s new computer bag! And don’t forget how I helped wrap the Christmas gifts this year, Huh? Tell me something I don’t know, Cutesie Butt!”
“Roxie, you think you’re so smart. Those were my toys you wrapped.
And don’t forget, I was the main attraction on the dining room table at Easter. Everyone thought I was so adorable all cuddled up in Mom’s Easter Basket. Mom says that since I know how to behave myself, I’ll get to go to the Gazebo. I pretty sure I heard her tell Dad you’re not going outside with us any more, because you bite and scratch her and keep trying to escape! And what about MY book? People say it’s utterly charming. I even have a special quilted bag so the characters in the book can take me to famous places. Where’s your bag? Huh? Huh? Stop pushing me, Roxie! I’m telling’ Mom on you!”
“You think you’re so precious, ZuZu. I know for a fact that Mom’s been writing blogs about me. People can’t get enough. I even have a fan club! You know what that means? Huh? Huh? It means you’re history! Everyone’s clamoring for blog posts about The Other Cat aka Roxie and pretty soon there’ll be way more posts and followers than people who buy that stupid book about you!”
“It’s not stupid, Roxie! It’s charming, and everyone says I’m the sweetest, little tabby ever.”
“Yeah, well, I’ve got an idea. Let’s let the yellow snake decide who’s the sweetest, little kitty ever. I’ll open the cage and he can lick us. Let’s let him make the final decision. You can even go first, ZuZu.”
