the purge

Way back when, when the dinosaurs roamed the earth...

Nah, that's not right.

Way back when, when Peep #1 was merely a kitten...

Nope, still not right.  Besides, those two things are pretty much the same thing.

Way back when, in days of yore...

NOW we're talkin'.

MOUSES!


So anyway...

So anyway, maybe like two or three years ago, I remember when tweetin' cats were losin' litters of kittens...  I mean, followers, on Twitter.  A kitty would wake up one mornin' and BAM!  Two followers gone.  Next mornin'?  BAM!  Another three!  The mornin' after that?  BAM!  And another had disappeared.

IT WAS A TWEETIN' NIGHTMARE, FOR SURE.

I remember bein' particularly upset one mornin', when this cute little calico kitty from Moscow I had been tweetin' with, disappeared without warnin'.  One day she was there, and the next, she was gone.  Gone.  GONE, I tell you.  Gone.

Gone like a nip cheese pizza in a room full of kitties.

MOUSES!

Of course, a few days after that, another cat with the same name started followin' me, but believe you me, this new cat was no cat at all.

I had to block her account and everythin'.

MOUSES!

Imagine, Peeps Postin' Pictures of themselves nekkid.

MOUSES!

And that, my friends, was The Great Twitter Purge of...

Whatever that year was.

MOUSES!

And speakin' of purges...

Last year, at my house, we had The Great Purge of 2017.

Let's just say, since then, Peep #1 no longer buys that kinda kibble.

MOUSES!

But ANYWAY...

So anyway, I awoke this mornin' to screams of...

Okay, so they weren't really screams.  It was more like a lot of hollerin'.

Well...  In all honesty, it was more like a few quiet murmurings.  Here and there.  That kinda thing.

But quiet murmurings or not, I immediately headed over to Twitter, for I was afraid there was another purge goin' on.  I was afraid I was losin' my followers!

Turns out, I had actually gained some.

MOUSES!

Actually, lots of my pals had.

MOUSES!

And speakin' of pals...

I don't say it often enough, my friends, but do you know somethin'?  I have THE BEST PALS in the world.  Have I ever told you that, my friends?  Even if I have, I know I haven't told you nearly enough.

You, my friends, are as real to me as my fur-sibs and peeps.

Although truth be told, I kinda like most of you, better.

MOUSES!

What?  WHAT?  What's that, Peepers?  What's that you're babblin' on about now?

Yeah, yeah...  I love you, too.

MOUSES!

  2. Seville, we have a Twitter account, but barely go there! FB and IG is where I spend most of my time, and yes of course on my blog and reading other blogs. And you've got to love your peepers!

    1. Yeah, apparently lovin' the peeps is part of the contract I signed. AT least that's what Peep #1 SAYS. MOUSES!

  3. I'm still on twitter, but mostly it posts on autopilot cause it's strange when you spend too much time there.

  7. I am glad we are friends. I have Twitter, but my posts go there automatically and I never go on it and rarely go on FB. I wish there were none of those and we just had blogs.

    1. I'm kinda like that with Google. I can post to it from my blog and since the peep went and PUT HER NAME on the Google account instead of mine... Well let's just say, I kinda post stuff without her knowin'. MOUSES!

  8. I just went over to my Twitter account... and it's still there and I don't think my followers have changed any. Maybe I need to stir things up!

  9. If you get urges for purges that sure isn’t a good thing. But we have great pals too, not sure if any are Russian though but seems like a load of folks visit from that part of the world but never say hello. I wonder if Russian mice taste like ours, or just like spam?

    1. Yup. Soon as I see the pictures with the nekkid peeps, I delete 'em. Guess that's why I didn't lose any pals in the recent purge. All my pals are real. purrs

  11. Twitter? Isn't that something that Cheeky Birdies do? We don't have an account with them. Maybe We should. Maybe, that way, We could catchy some birdies (mol).

  19. Seville, I remember when Admiral was there, she had a lot of followers but after she went OTRB, only 3 or 4 Pals tweeted with her. I, Katie have not gotten many furriends even after 6 years. With mom and her really invasive heart surgery and taking care of my favorite brother three times as he had surgery, I lost some furriends cause I wasn't there at #nipclub enough.

    I love my Pals who notice me when I attend #Nipclub and will say hello. And I adore my CB furriends who are always by my side as I am theirs. XXXX Rushton, my gosh. You and I have to quit the horking, Pal.

    1. Nissy used to hang out on Twitter a lot. I'm not on there all that much. I visit at least a couple times a week. And I miss out on a lot. But sometimes, still, Twitter makes Peep #1 miss Nissy even more, you know? purrs

    2. I do. Admiral was on Nissys porch when he got hus bionic knee! They were Pals.
