Master Aki shares a sad story but it has a happy ending

Master Aki shares a sad story but one that does have a happy ending. He begged me to share it with y’all. This is his story!

I will never forget that fateful day just a few weeks ago; when I “misplaced” my favorite toy.  It was a little plastic ring covered with layers of pastel colored, neatly designed crochet work. She had purchased it at a cat show many years ago, but none of the other cats in our house liked it. But I fell in love with it the minute I saw it, and I batted it all over, proudly carrying it in my mouth throughout the house. So I was totally bereft without it. I had been very careful to stash it away in my secret hiding places so I would never lose it. But it was indeed a dark and dismal day when it went missing.

I searched everywhere to no avail. I even hopped into the fridge when Mamma Cat opened it. I gotta tell you she was not happy with me when I was scrounging through the left-overs. But alas, it wasn’t there. I was so upset, (although I was slightly tempted), that I didn’t even grab a bite of the juicy roast beef she so carefully stores so my big brother, Sir Hubble Pinkerton, is easier to give sub-Q fluids to help his kidneys. In fact, Mamma Cat sings to him his favorite song- “It’s roast beef day” whenever the two legged ones are getting ready to give him a treatment. But I digress.

Mamma Cat also searched the house, pulling off the sofa cushions, and checking in every nook and cranny but she couldn’t find it either. I started crying! I was so frustrated, and I wasn’t interested in any of the other toys she offered me.

So Mamma Cat logged onto Facebook to ask her dear friend Rosie Raddaz, a very talented kitty toy maker if she could be of help.  When Mamma Cat showed her a photo of my missing toy, she immediately recommended her dear friend, Linda Shipes who also makes toys.  She told Mamma Cat that Linda did wonderful crochet work and she might possibly be able to replicate it.

Mamma Cat contacted Linda and sent her a photo of the toy.  Linda checked it out and told Mamma Cat that she could definitely make them, so Mamma Cat placed an order.  About a week later, a package arrived at the door that seemed to be a gazillion of little rings covered in a wide assortment of different textures and pastel colors. I loved the pink ones and the purple ones and the different combinations of colors proving that cats are not color-blind. With this array of toys I never will have to be without one. In fact there are many little colored rings all over the house, so when I am in the mood to play with one. 13282082_970846933031570_2108782678_n

Mamma Cat and I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank Rosie and Linda for making this possible. I am once again a happy little kitty who will never have to go without my favorite toy! You can contact Linda Shipes on Facebook if you wish to get some for your beloved fur-kids.

Aki says: “Mamma Cat Played a Nasty Trick on me!”

Yesterday Mamma Cat played another nasty trick on me! Why does she do this to me?

But before I tell you about it,please bear with me.  I need to share a little history about how my day began.

It started  just like any other day; nothing strange about it in the least.  After I finished my breakfast, I sat around deciding what to do first.  I was deep in thought when my brother, Edgar Allen Poe strolled into the kitchen. I could tell that he too was looking for mischief. So I chased him around the house for a while. That made him happy!

Much to my joy, while I was chasing him, I finally found my favorite toy. It had been missing  forever. I love my amazing Rosie the Rat  toy. But just when I started tossing it around, that knucklehead, Mr. EAP came out of nowhere and stole Rosie from me. That got me so darned mad.   To let him know that I don’t take any crap and that he had just made a serious error in judgement, I slapped him upside his head a few times.

That musta taught him a lesson! He dropped Rosie right away with such an apologetic look on his face.   I scurried away with Rosie in my mouth and found a secret hiding place to hide it. Mr. EAP  ain’t never going to find it!

I was a little tired after doing battle with EAP and stashing away my Rosie. So I curled up on the window seat with my big brother, Sir Hubble Pinkerton.  Of course he chewed on my ears and then washed them . I like to make him happy! We both settled in for a long, peaceful nap, snoozing in the sun.

But when the doorbell rang , my day suddenly went south. Mamma Cat opened the door and then I heard a familiar sound. Oh no- it was the pretty lady doctor’s voice!  I immediately jumped out of the window box and tried to  disappear;  but it was too late! Mamma Cat snatched me up and the next thing I knew Shannon, the pretty lady doctor’s vet tech was holding me tightly.

Then pretty lady doctor started sticking needles into me. I tried to struggle out of Shannon’s arms but she had a firm grip on me . No way could I escape. Oh the indignities of being forced to be  poked, prodded and on top of that  having needles stuck into me! It was almost too much for me to bear.

I kept wondering why Mamma Cat didn’t let me know that the pretty lady doctor was coming to the house to check me out. I guess she thought that if she did I would have disappeared where no one would ever find me. But Mamma Cat is too darned smart to give me advance warning about such things.  Thank goodness the “tormenting- du -jour” ended quickly.   Before they left, Shannon and the pretty lady doctor gave me lotsa kisses, then packed up their needles and their tubes and off they went. Mamma Cat was left waiting for what she called  “the results”.

The news must have been to her liking, because Mamma Cat did a little happy dance when the pretty lady doctor texted her the good news. All the tests came out perfectly so I should get  an “A+”. But I would much prefer some rare roast beef to be purrfectly honest!

I think it’s party time! Do you agree?  Let me know-I am all ears!
