I'm surrounded by suck-ups, my friends.  Surrounded by suck-ups, I say!

Yeah, you heard me right.  That's what I said.  I'm surrounded by....

NO!!!  No, I didn't say that.  What kinda cat do you think that I am?  S, not F.  It's an S!

Gentlecats such as myself don't use that nasty ol' word.


My gosh, not only am I surrounded by suck-ups, but they're all hard of hearin' as well.


So last night, I was in the family room mindin' my own business when all of a sudden Saffron walked in.  He went straight over to Peepers who was sittin' on the chesterfield with a blankie over her legs,  'cause you know, the nights have been gettin' chilly as of late.

So anyway, Saffy Saffron Sassafras went straight over to Peepers and curled up on the part of the blankie that was lyin' on the floor, snugglin' in between Peepers' two feet.  Then he started to purr.  And purr.  AND PURR.  And then when Peepers commented on how cute and lovin' he was bein', he purred even more!

I'm tellin' ya, he's a suck-up extraordinaire.


And if that wasn't enough, Saffron then stretched out and rolled this way and that, reachin' out with his paws to wrap 'em around the peep's ankles and stuff, purrin' and purrin' all the time.

A suck-up, I tell you.  A SUCK-UP!

And then...

And then, even though it was past Peepers' bedtime, she sat there on that ol' chesterfield for like an hour or two more so as not to disturb the little suck-up, previously known as Saffron.


And if that wasn't enough, this mornin' I happened to look out my office window and what did I see?  I saw the cat from across the street lyin' in my yard, rollin' around just like Saffy had the night before.

Yup, he was bein' a real suck-up, too.


And then I noticed the birdies were flittin' about, showin' off their pretty colours, sweetly serenadin' the peep with their songs.

Stupid birdies.  They're nothin' but suck-ups, as well.


Now this is a problem, my friends.  A very big problem, for sure.  The thing is, if the suck-ups surroundin' me continue to suck-up to the peep, I'm gonna have to start suckin' up, too.  And I don't wanna do that, you see, on account of if anyone is suckin' up to anyone else, those anyone elses should be suckin' up to ME.

Pretty sure there's a law about that.  If not, there should be.



And remember:



Continue to practice SOCIAL DISTANCIN' measures



Remember to mask up, too.


  1. It really is catchy Seville, you might have to look for a band wagon to get on.

  2. MOUSES! Those suck-ups have to go and ruin things for you, Sivvers. Why should YOU have to suck up just to keep up with the Joneses, er, um, we mean the suck-ups?

  3. Awww, Sevvie, try actually might like it...getting all the oohs and ahhs, and attention, too. Go and give your peeper a head bonk, I bet she'd LOVE that!

  4. It took me a lot of training to teach my parents how to suck up

  5. This is exactly what the peep wants! Don't give in Seville! Purrs


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