you're it!

YOU'RE IT!

Shhhh...  Don't tell her where I am.  Mason, I said, don't tell her where I am.  Don't tell Peep #1 where I'm hiding!

AND DON'T POINT IT OUT, EITHER.

MOUSES!

Mason, you and I are gonna need to sit down and have a little chat about the concept of hide and seek, for sure.

Need I say it again?  Of course I do.  MOUSES!

So anyway, the first peep got a new pair of earrings.  Yup, she splurged.  Splurged on all of three dollars and ninety-nine cents worth of earrings.

And that was for the pair, by the way.  MOUSES!

So anyway...

So anyway, she got this pair of cheap and trashy...

What's that, Peepers?  They were inexpensive and sparkly, you say?

Hmmm...  You can call 'em what you like, Peepers, but I'm calling 'em as I see 'em, and the way I see 'em is that they're CHEAP and TRASHY, for sure. MOUSES!

So anyway, Peep #1 splurged on a pair of cheap and trashy earrings, and the first thing I said to her when I saw 'em was...

"YOU KNOW HOW MUCH NIP THOSE WOULD BUY?"

Then I found out she paid under four dollars for the complete set and I said...

"Never mind.  Not all that much, I suppose.  MOUSES!"

But that's when I realized something.  That's when I realized that those earrings that looked like Christmas prezzies all wrapped up, and were danglin' from the peep's ears like no other pair of earrings had ever dangled before, were OBVIOUSLY meant...

AS TOYS, FOR ME.  MOUSES!

So I got up all close and personal with the peep.  Yup, that's right, I sidled up to her, right there on the couch.  I started to purr, so as to get her to let her guard down.  I allowed her to tickle my chin and give me scritches behind the ears.  Then I walked onto her lap.  And then, I stretched way up so that we were practically nose to nose, and I just knew...  I just knew she thought I was gonna give her nose kisses which, by the way, is somethin' peeps absolutely LOVE when cats do.

And then...

And then...

And then I lifted a paw...

And with one mighty swipe, I swatted one of those earrings with the mightiest of swats, cried "YOU'RE IT!" at the top of my lungs, and ran like no kitty has ever been seen runnin', before.

And that would be about the time when Mason told the peep where I was hidin' and ruined all of my fun.

MOUSES!

  1. I think you're right. Buying cheap n trashy earrings that look like kitty toys is exactly what Peep #1 had in mind when she paid under four dollars for them. Here at my house, my mom put a village together with a tree. She didn't try to make it all fancy and purrrfect cuz she knew Dori would want to put in her own special touches...which of course Dori has been doing non-stop since the village went up. Christmas is for Kitties! Yay!

  3. Pfffft! If they sparkle and dangle, then they are kitty toys. Surely your peep knows that.

  5. I can't believe she spent what clearly should have been catnip money on herself! How dare she!? I say you hide those earrings in your litter box and she how long it takes her to find them!

  7. Thank you for that terrific giggle. We can just see it. Our Mom has a couple of those wild, cheap holiday earrings. One pair even has bells. That just screams (er...jingles) cat toy to us. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  10. What I wants to know being and enquiring Princess, is, will peep #1 be wearing them wonderfully trashy earrings toys again for Christmas? I mean gifts are for giving, trashy or not, and if they're toys they just have to be played with! purrs ERin PS $4 worth of Nip hanging around the ear lobe area sounds an quite enticing idea, if a mite dangerous for peep #1. Mouses!

  11. It's a bit miffing when everyone doesn't play by the proper set of rules! But, that was a great move on the earring!

    Purrs,
