Tattletale Tuxie Tuesday
Karen Jo: I apologize. It snowed all day yesterday, which kind of depressed me. I know that we need all the moisture we can get, but I am sooo tired of being cold. Things were hectic at work. By the time I got home I was tired and cold and I wanted to watch the news. Important things happened.
Emma: More important than Herman's pill?
Karen Jo: No, I promise not to let it happen again.
I didn't mind missing my pill. Those things taste terrible.
Emma: This morning Herman hurt Mom.
I didn't mean to. I was bunny kicking her arm and forgot to keep my claws tucked in.
Karen Jo: I know that you didn't mean to hurt me, Herman. You stopped when I started saying "OW!" You hadn't played the bunny kicking game with me in a long time and you just forgot.
I could tell some stories on Emma.
Emma: Yeah? Like what?
You always scratch the furniture instead of the scratching posts and pads. If you don't stop it, Mom is going to put you in the Naughty Kitty Club. I'm in the Good Kitty Club.
Emma: Mom? Is that true?
Karen Jo: No, Emma. Just scratching the furniture isn't enough to get you into the Naughty Kitty Club.
Emma: Whew! I don't want to be in the Naughty Kitty Club. I want to be in the Good Kitty Club like Herman.
Good kitties don't scratch the furniture.
Karen Jo: That's true, but that's the only naughty thing that Emma does, so maybe she could get into the Good Kitty Club after all.
Emma: I hope so.
