resolutions


Let's see, New Year resolution number one.


Hmmm...


Nah, that was a silly resolution for me to make.  I'll just scratch that one off my list.


New Year resolution number two.


Hmmm...


In all honesty, that's the kinda resolution a kitty might make when a kitty was nipped.


Which I probably was.


Yeah, I'm gonna scratch that one off my list, too.


MOUSES!


New Year resolution number three.


Hmmm...


Well that one's doable.


I suppose.


IF I wanted to do it, that is.


Which I don't.


Best I just scratch that resolution off my list, as well.


New Year resolution number four.


Hmmm...


Well that one doesn't even apply to me.  Be nicer to others?  Huh.  I must have been thinkin' of Peepers when I wrote that particular resolution.  I'll just scratch it off my list and add it to hers, and...


Hey Peepers!  PEEPERS!  Where did you put that list of New Year resolutions I wrote for you?  You know the one.  The one that listed all the improvements I thought you could make in 2024.


NO, not home improvements.  PERSONAL improvements.  Improvements to YOUR person.  I even listed 'em in order from most important to least.  You know, so you'd know where to start.


What a helpful kitty I am.


'Cause the thing is, Peepers, I've come up with another New Year resolution for you.  Another resolution to add to your list,  WHICH IS WHY I'm currently lookin' for that list.  I'm pretty sure I can squeeze this new one in between numbers thirty-three and thirty-four.


Meh, maybe I should make it number thirty-five.  Definitely somewhere in the thirties, for sure.


So anyway, Peepers, WHERE-OH-WHERE IS THAT LIST?


Peepers, why are you lookin' over there?


YOU WHAT?  You put my...  I mean, your...  I mean, you threw MY list of YOUR New Year resolutions out in the...  In the...  IN THE GARBAGE, you say?


Gosh darn it, that ol' peep has already broken three of her resolutions and it's only January 3rd.


Of all the no-good peepish things to do.


MOUSES!


Good thing I've got a good memory.  I can make her a copy.


But before I do that, I had better tackle my own.  Tackle my own list of resolutions, that is.


New Year resolution number five:  Don't make any more resolutions.


That's odd, I don't remember makin' that one.


And I don't think that's even my pawwritin'.  It looks more like...


HEY PEEPERS!  PEEPERS!!!  YOU BEEN MESSIN' WITH MY LIST?


Awww...


MOUSES!

  6. Surely there is nothing about you that requires improvement, Sivvers - therefore, no need for you to make Mew Year's Resolutions!

    1. You have a good point there, my friends. A very good point, indeed, WHICH IS WHY I generally make resolutions for the peeps. They can do with lots of improvements, for sure. MOUSES!

    1. Hmmm...

      HMMM...

      Nope, Peepers is to do as I say and not as I do.

      Don't know how many times I've told her.

  9. From Kitties Blue: Your form will not accept our URL! Anyhoo, we have made some resolutions in the past, but they never seem to stick! And the ones our humans make for us are pawful and universally ignored. We do, however, understand your frustration. Just keep keeping on. Cats Rule!

    1. I'm so sorry 'bout that! I don't know why it wouldn't take the URL. Stupid form. I'd ask Peepers to fix it but I doubt she knows how. She's so useless with that stuff. *sighs* PURRS
