And the peep is a crow!
So the peep was reading this magazine called Woman's World the other day and in it were horoscopes. At least that's what they called them but they weren't fortellin' the future or anything like that. Instead, they were giving peeps the keys to their happiness. Well... happiness for peeps starts with a cat on their lap. I could have told them that. Anywho... these were special horoscopes 'cause they included all these pretty pictures of animals. That, of course, is what attracted me to the magazine enough to sit up on the couch next to the peep and take a gander at those horoscopes myself!
According to this Native American horoscope, I'm a falcon. Who knew? I thought I was a cat. But the rest of the stuff was kind of fitting. I'm supposed to be full of energy and I am... except of course when I'm napping but that kind of goes without saying, I think. I'm supposed to have clear judgement and I have that. Helps me write my blog and all, you know. Oh, and people look to me for leadership. Hmmm... well that one I might have to work on a bit. I will inform my fellow fur family members of this tonight. I will inform them that they need to follow my lead a little more than they do. Of course... a lot of their non-following stems from the fact that they, too, enjoy a good nap and it's hard to follow somebody when you're busy napping. Hey... wait a minute! Just wait a cock-a-pickin' mousin' minute there! Maybe they are following me after all. Maybe they're following me by takin' lots of naps. Well, that makes total sense, don't you think?
Now for the peep. According to this magazine, she's a crow. I find it odd that we're both supposed to be birds even though I'm a cat and it is now suspected that ol' peepers might be part cat - anyone who read my blog post "remembering" fully understands why. Of course, the other part of her is peep and birds kind of make peep-like noises. So maybe it all makes sense, after all.
Well, the peep is supposed to have ingenuity and be charming with an affable nature. She is supposed to be well suited to be a diplomat. They've got that part all wrong. My peep could never be a diplomat. Oh yeah... it would work out just fine for a while. For a while she'd molly-coddle whomever she was diplomatting but then all you-know-what would break loose when she lost her patience with the diplomaticums and told them exactly what she thought 'bout the situation. Yup. Now that I could see. Actually, I think maybe I have.
But truth be told, there is a bit of crow in the ol' peep. She's quite fond of shiny, sparkly things. She's always hanging them off her ears and stuff. Okay... no stuff, really... just her ears. Two extra man-made holes in her head, apparently, are enough. Personally, I think that two might even be two too many but as long as she gets no notions of havin' my ears pierced, I'm okay with her wearing the sparkly-warklies herself. Although... I would look quite handsome in blue topaz or pink sapphires. Hey, why stop with topaz and sapphires? Diamonds come in those colours, too! Maybe I should add something like that to my list for Santa? Nah! Don't really wanna get my ears pierced. Honestly, I don't at all!
And just what did the horoscope say was the key to my peep's happiness? This made me chuckle. It said she should treat others with patience and cut them some slack 'cause things might not come as easily for them as for her. Yeah... like that's gonna happen. Did I mention 'bout what would happen after she molly-coddled the dimplomaticums? How she'd tell 'em what she thought even if they didn't wanna hear 'bout it? Just thinking about it makes me fall over my tail laughing. Hehe... hehehe.... hehehehe... Oh my gosh... Hohoho... I just can't help myself... hehehe... hehehe... hehehehehe... Someone slap some sense into me with my tail! Please!!! Hehe... hehehe... hehehehe... Oh it's too much! It's just too much I say! Hahahahaha....

Native Americans were smart about a lot of things. But I am not so sure they knew too much about kitties!ReplyDelete
Nerissa, you could easily be mistaken for a falcon!! As for peep being a crow Mwahahaha!! My peep is a vulture!!! ;)ReplyDelete
Hmm, no way! We think you look just like a cat. Wonder what Cocco would be?ReplyDelete
Katie and Coccolino the mini pig
wish you had the link to the article! Would love to see it!ReplyDelete
It was the November 5th issue. The peeps gets her Woman's World a week late 'cause of the fact that we live in the boondocks. Although... there aren't any docks. Anywho... the delivery truck bring's 'em a week later than for EVERYONE else. Your mom is likely a crow like my peep. September 22nd to October 22nd.Delete
Well, my mom's an old crow, if that helps.ReplyDelete
Maybe a furry one...
We like Mr. Black's comment...Glogirly doesn't look very crowy, but she sometimes has to eat it. And it doesn't taste like chicken!
; ) Katie
At least nobody was a TURKEY, MOL!ReplyDelete
I think you kids are in Canada, but tomorrow is Thanksgiving here in the US, and we is thankful for YOU, furiends!
I watch my Mom do the crossword sometimes. :)ReplyDelete
We think our mom is part crow too!ReplyDelete
And lizard because she likes to bask in the sun!
Hope you had a terrific Thanksgiving! Purrs...ReplyDelete
I wonder if 'horoscopes' ever say anything bad about people. It may turn many of them off from horoscopes, but it'd probably be more accurate. In the meantime, I think you make a perfect cat, Nerissa; never mind the falcon bit.ReplyDelete
Crows? Falcons? What about Kitties? or other cute furries? (Not that any furry is as cute as a kitty, but still....crows? falcons??? As if!)ReplyDelete
Ha, Ha, oh dear I am just imagining you in sparkly earrings. Hey if you are a falcon you should be able to fly. How wonderful, Narissa the flying cat; move over Dumbo! Purrs and Hugs Patchy. XXXReplyDelete
Hey! My ears arent' THAT big!!! purrsDelete
TW doesn't have extra holes in her ears. I may take my claws and make some for her.ReplyDelete
Hrm, Allie would be a crow for sure - she LOVES bling!ReplyDelete
