Is this the face of a trouble-maker????
Shakespeare, I wasn’t asking you!
But our readers need to know that you’ve been very bad!
Bad is all in how you interpret it. Let me explain….
This should be good.
Quiet. You see, it’s Mom’s fault that she told me that she had some catnip growing by the house on the other side of the gate. That’s just too tempting for me. I am a smart kitty so I discovered a way I could get out of the gate and go help myself to the catnip. Sometimes Mom gets too busy and she forgets to bring us that fresh catnip. Anyway, I was out strolling around the other night and Uncle Bob ratted on me. He saw me over at Champ’s house and he told Mom. I just wanted to go visit Champ and see if he wanted some catnip.
But Mom told you that you were supposed to stay in the back yard.
Yeah…yeah…..well, I had other plans! Mom came outside and I heard her calling my name. She came around the house and spotted me and I knew I was busted. For some reason I decided to practice my hissing. Mom was not amused. She finally picked me up…
Believe me, readers…..that’s not easy for Mom to do ‘cuz Hemingway weighs four hundred gazillion pounds.
Quiet. So, she picked me up and for some reason I just had to hiss, so I did. Mom was surprised and told me to be quiet. Suddenly the catnip took over my whole body and I turned around and bit Mom on the cheek. I didn’t bite hard and it didn’t leave much of a mark, but she was very disappointed in me.
That wasn’t very nice.
I know! I think I have a problem with catnip. Mom says I get aggressive but I don’t know what that means.
You just get mean!
I’m trying to be a better kitty but it’s hard. When I don’t get enough attention I get bored and then I start knocking everything down. I’ve been doing a lot of that today and Mom is getting frustrated. She says she’s going to send me to summer camp if I don’t calm down.
I’ll pack your bag!
Man, it would be so quiet if Hemingway went to summer camp………..

Oh Hemingway, you have been a very naughty boy! Whee get like this when whee want parsley or grass. But whee are so cute the hoomans can’t stay cross for long. Just promise to do better next time and it will be fine!
Nibbles, Nutty, Buddy & Basil
We know the hoomans love us and think we’re adorable. It’s just that catnip is such a fine treat!!!
I have two babies also; one is a tabby part Maine Coon named Sami and the other named Marty who looks similar to Shakespeare. I believe my Sami has the same disposition as Hemingway, the good kitty. While my Marty is the trouble maker. He is a lover most of the time but is very jealous. Whenever I show any affection to Sami, Marty will tussle with Sami and me until Sami leaves. Sami won’t fight back he just goes to the basement. Marty is only 2 and I keep hoping he will go out of it, I just hope Sami and I survive.
Hope your new bite isn’t as serious as the one on you leg. Hope all is healing well. Looking forward to reading about other “Moms” adventures.
Mom said Hemingway better not bite her again. She’s on the third round of antibiotics and she said the human “vet” had to take pictures inside her leg this week. Since she hasn’t heard anything, she’s thinking there isn’t any bone infection so she’s happy
Mom speaking: Hemingway tends to be jealous of Shakespeare and doesn’t want me paying attention to him. They are both about 3 and I think they will just always be less than loving around each other. They do great but they don’t cuddle together now. Still, I love my boys! Say hi to Sami and Marty from me and my boys!.
Hemmingway, we think you need to lay off the nip. It just doesn’t agree with you.
That’s what Mom says…..but then I remind her about chocolate………
I really am trying to be good and I have been giving Mom lots of purrs and soft paw pats. Even Shakespeare can tell you that I’m being nice. Thanks for checking up on me. I’ll let you know how I’m doing.
Hemingway, maybe you shouldn’t have more than a certain quantity of nip. As a nip guru, I know these things happen – cough – but the risk is that your human will stop giving you any catnip
Oh nooooooooooooooooo………..life without nip is not a good thing!
Maybe summer camp would be a good idea for Binga. She can’t handle her nip either.
I hope our humans find a good summer camp if that’s the answer. However, I think staying at home is the best answer!
Hemingway come and visit us as we grow the nip in our garden 😉
Thanks for the invite!!! Mom…………………wait……she doesn’t want me going out of the yard. Bummer!
dood…..fresh leef nip will due that sum timez….we dunno why either….if yur mom bringed de nip inta de houz N dried it sum… sew it be like “inside a toy” nip….. may nee purrhaps ya wood knot get de eye dea ta pree tend ya iza snake N hizz !!! may bee …~~~~~~~
Hemingway here…….I had to laugh when I read that you said I was pretending to be a snake. I never thought of that! Mom would say my tummy is too big to slither around on the ground so maybe I better quit the hizzn!
