chatty Cathy

My goodness, Rushton, you've become a real chatty Cathy, as of late.

"I have not."

Have too.

"HAVE NOT."

Have too.  Every time you see a peep, you're right there, right by their feet, meowin' this and meowin' that, and that and this, and this and that, and...

"I can't be a chatty Cathy, Seville.  Cathy is a GIRLS' name!"

Yeah, but chatty Rushy just sounds weird.  MOUSES!

"But Seville, I'm a boy."

Huh.  Well you have long fur like a girl.

"Boy cats can have long fur, too, Seville.  Just because yours is short all over, it doesn't mean ALL boy cats have short fur.  Besides, I'm mid-lion cut.  I have some short fur, too."

Yeah, 'bout that...  When ARE you gonna let the peep do the fur on your tummy, huh?  Huh, Rushy?  HUH?

"Tomorrow."

You said tomorrow, yesterday.

"Well tomorrow still isn't here yet.  It's only today."

Oh for the love of mouses.  Anyway...  Back to this chattin' business of yours.  Rushy, why are you bein' so chatty these days?  How come you have so much to say?  Why are you such a chatty Cathy, as of late?

"I'm not answering that."

Why?

"Because I'm ignoring you."

Why?

"BECAUSE YOU'RE CALLING ME BY A GIRLS' NAME.  AGAIN."

Rushy, I thought we had covered that.  Anyway, LIKE I SAID, 'bout this chattin' business:  You're CONSTANTLY chattin' to the peeps these days.

"I am?"

You are.

"Oh.  Well it's probably the Maineness of my Coon, coming out."

IT'S WHAT?

"The Maineness of my Coon.  Or maybe it's the Coonness of my Maine.  Or maybe it's just my Coon.  Or MAYBE it's just my Maine.  OR MAYBE it's really, my MANE.  Or..."

Oh for the LOVE of mouses.  Rushy, you sure do sound like a chatty Cathy to me.  YOU'RE ALL CHAT AND NO SENSE.  MOUSES!

"Got it!  I think it's the Coonness of my MANE, because even with my partial lion cut, I still have this beautiful mane."

Yeah, yeah....  Seriously Rushy, you have GOT to start makin' more sense.

"Peep #1 understands me."

Uh...  Right.

"She does!"

Whatever.

"She does too."

Whatever you say there, Bro.  I'll believe you, even if no one else would.  MOUSES!

"Sivvers, you're bein' mean."

I, brother dear, am bein' me.  I would have thought you'd know me by now.  And quit scowlin' like that.  You're gonna give yourself wrinkles.  Not that anyone will be able to see 'em under all that long fur.  Bwahahahahahahaha!!!

"Is that supposed to be funny, Seville?"

Uh...  Yeah.  Yeah, it is.  Why?   Did you think it wasn't?

"I thought it was mean."

Yeah, yeah...  Like I said, Rushy, I'm just bein' me.  And by the way, you never did answer my question.  How come you're such a chatty Cathy these days?

"Because I like to chat.  There, I said it.  Is that answer good enough for you?"

Guess so.  I don't know why you didn't just answer my question in the first place.  MOUSES!

    1. You're so right! I mean, if his name is Crockett, it CAN'T be Sam, and if it's Sam, it can't be Crockett. MOUSES!

  3. Oh dear Seville, better be careful not to pick on Rushton too much, you may need him one day to back you up out of a corner that you have gotten yourself into. Just remember that, you might need some help some day and Rushy there might just be your best buddy that day for sure.

  5. Rushy, just answer his questions and tell Seville to move along. He's just jealous because you have long, intelligent conversations with the peeps. Seville asks a lot of questions, doesn't he? You should call him a nosey posey, see how he likes that. ;)

  9. Flynn was the same, Rushy. He never stopped talking.....or yelling. I am sure he must have had some Siamese blood hidden away somewhere. I don't remember ever calling him Cathy though!

  14. Yikes my prior comment seems to have got lost. I bet it was all that chatting by Rushton that distracted it and has gone to the wrong blog! Mol
