Shakespeare, are you doing what Mom said?
Did you call me? I’m just playing house in this cool box Mom got.
You’re supposed to be working.
Working on what?
Working on your New Year’s Resolutions like I am.
I don’t see anything on that paper.
I know. I’m having problems with it. What is a resolution anyway? I looked it up on the internet and it said something about being determined.
Well that already fits us! Why did Mom say we had to write resolutions? She knows we want to play when she’s home and not do work stuff.
Well, I think it has something to do with the fact that this is the end of 2012.
Oh nooooooooooooooo. What’s happening to 2012? What are we going to do?
Relax! The humans have a little over 365 days in what they call a year. 2012 ends tonight at midnight and then it becomes 2013.
So when we wake Mom up for breakfast it will be 2013?
Yes…..as long as we don’t wake her up before midnight.
I wouldn’t think of doing that. Well…..I might think of it but I know I shouldn’t do it. Hey…is that a resolution? I think I’ll take a little nap and see if there are some things I should really be determined about in 2013, so don’t bother me.
I think it’s kind of sad that 2012 is ending. That means that the next big thing will probably be your birthday and we’ll never hear the end of that.
From the Mom:
Boys, you’ve made 2012 so much fun for me. You’ve grown into real nice kitties. I still remember the day I first adopted the two of you. Hemingway, you were first and I counted on you to be nice to your new little brother when he arrived. You still have your little quarrels, but you also look out for each other. I think the best resolutions you two could make would be to stay as sweet and thoughtful as you are. I know you want to wish all of your fur people and human friends a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR. All of us hope that all of you dear friends have a year that’s filled with love, hope, peace and joy. May this be the year when humans really reach out to help others.
