so the other day...

So the other day I was thinkin', and...

"You were thinking, Seville?"

"Oh shush up, Mason.  Yes, was thinkin'.  I, Seville the Cat, think on a regular basis.  I think 'bout all sorts of stuff, AND I think about said stuff practically every single day."

Mason raised an eyebrow.

"I DO TOO.  Don't look at me like that."

"Like what?" Mason asked, pretendin' to be Miss Lady Innocent, and everythin'.

"Like all disbelievin' and stuff.  Bottom line is, I think.  The question at paw is, do YOU?"

Mason grunted and turned on her tail to leave, but moments later she stopped and spun back around.  "If you think so much, Seville, what are you thinking about right now?"


Mason rolled her eyes.  "Right, stuff like what?"

"Stuff like stuff," I scowled at my sister.  "Just...  STUFF."

Without sayin' a word, she gave me her look that said, OH REALLY?

I scowled at Mason some more.  "Sometimes I think about YOU, sister dear.  'Bout how annoyin' you can be, questionin' my every move.  And 'bout how you think you're the boss around here."

"I don't think that, Seville.  I KNOW."

And just when I thought I couldn't possibly screw my face up into more of a scowl than the scowl it was already in, I surprised myself, and scowled at Mason even more.

"So seriously, Seville, what were you thinking about the other day?"

"What?  What's that you're goin' on about now?"

"When I came into the room, earlier," Mason sighed, "you were claiming to have been thinking the other day.  What were you thinking about?"

I lifted my paw and inspected an extended claw.  After blowing off an invisible speck of dirt with a puff of my breath, I answered, "Like I said, just stuff.  What don't you understand 'bout the word, stuff, Mason?"

"Seville, fess up.  You weren't thinking at all."

I opened my mouth to respond, then closed it again.  Then opened it once more.  "Was too!" I blurted out.  "I was thinkin' about stuff.  STUFF THAT HAS NOTHIN' TO DO WITH YOU."

Mason was clearly doubtful.  I could tell, you see, on account of both her eyebrows tryin' to reach for the ceilin'.  Then my sister sighed a big sigh and said, "IF you were thinking, Seville, I bet you were thinking about catnip."

I twisted my jaw to one side.  "Hmm....  I can see how you might think that, Mason.  Yup, I can see that, for sure.  After all, I do think 'bout the nip an awful lot.  'Bout how I can get my paws on the nip.  'Bout how I can earn money to buy me some nip.  'Bout how I can make money sellin' the nip, in order to buy even more.  'Bout how..."

"I GET THE PICTURE," interrupted Mason.  "You think a lot about nip."

I nodded in agreement.  "I do.  But the other day, the stuff I was thinkin' about wasn't catnip at all.  Not even catnip related."

Mason furrowed her brow.

"It's true!  Actually....  Can you keep a secret, Mason?  Can you?"

"I keep the fact that we're related, a secret, all of the time."

"You what?" I asked, my jaw droppin' to the floor.

"Until now, I had kept my keepin' you a secret, secret, too."

I growled a low growl.  "If you're gonna be mean like that, Mason, I WON'T tell you my secret.  See if I care.  I won't tell you what I was thinkin' about, at all."

Mason sighed.  "Okay, I'll be nice.  What were you thinking about the other day?  I promise I..."

"Cross your heart and hope to spray?"

"Cross my heart and hope to spray," Mason agreed, begrudgingly.  "I promise I won't tell your secret to a soul."

"Well," I began, "the other day, I was thinkin'...  I was thinkin' it's high time for me to go on another adventure of some kind.  Not quite sure where.  Or even when.  Not exactly, at least.  But in the next few weeks, I'm gonna go on an adventure, for sure.  And it's gonna be an excitin' adventure, too.  Wanna come, Mason?  Huh?  HUH?  Do you?  Do you think that maybe you do?


Stay tuned for my next excitin' adventure, coming soon to a computer screen near you.



  1. Thinking about catnip is well and fine, but going on an Adventure is wonderpurr! Can't wait to read all about it.

  2. ooooh, another adventure. That beats thoughts of nip anytime. Rondo here: Etude doesn't like catnip.... but the rest of us do. If only Grammy would share it with us.

  3. I smell some fun stuff coming up, at least that's what I'm thinkin'!

  4. Hari OM
    Adventure? Adventure you say??? I's interested!!! (Did you see my 'ever curious' byline???) Keep thinking Sev mah maan, keep thinking! Hugs and whiskeries, YAM-aunty xxx

  5. We will be looking forward to the new adventure on the horizon!

  6. So it's true! You DO think about something other than nip! Looking forward to your next adventure!

  7. Now you make us want to go on an adventure!!

  8. OOOH, another adventure? We can hardly wait to see where, Sivvers!

  9. I think Mason doth protest too much... anyways Mrs H says too much thinking is bad for folks, but not nip, that’s fine but not all at once. Mol
    Oooh now an adventure sounds awesome, and Mrs H says I can stay up late to listen for it coming into our mail box! I wonder what sound an adventure makes ?
    Toodle pips and purrs

  10. Another adventure????? Holy catnip, Mommy! We have to make sure to get ready for this!
    This time maybe we can have pizza???
    Or some fun time with the nip??
    If Mason doesn't want to come along, any room for a sweet Tuxie lady???

  11. I get caught 'thinking' often too, Seville! It's usually, 'what the heck did I come into this room for?' but sometimes it's you!

  12. Another adventure, Severs?! Oh WOW-EE! I can't wait to hear all about it! I wonder if you're gonna adventure back on that train... maybe you're gonna venture to see what happens at the North Pole at summertime? Oh, you have me in suspense! I think I need some nip to calm my excitement! Hugs!


  14. Oh yes, I can't wait for another adventure! Good thinking Seville.

  15. Uhh... Are we sure this is a good idea??

  16. Pawsome pass the me-ow around another adventure with Seville and pawsobily Mason.😸😻🐾

  17. Mason makes the perfect sidekick ... doesn't she? Just let her think SHE'S the boss and you'll be golden ... err ... marmy.

  18. An adventure would be fun- get out the egg beaters :)


I love hearin' from my pals. I really, REALLY do. PURRS.
