Did you hear Mom talking about some clipsie thing today?
She was talking about the eclipse.
So, what is that? Is it a new cat food? Is it a new catnip plant?
No. It’s something that happened in the sky.
Well, imagine you are looking out the window at a pretty butterfly. Then all of a sudden, I walk in front of you and sit down for a bit.
You always do that!
Yes, well, that’s sort of what the moon did. Today the moon got in front of the sun and blocked its sight so it couldn’t send out those rays of light and make it bright outside.
I thought we saw the moon at night. What’s it doing awake during the day? Is it still clipsing?
No. It happened around the time Mom has her lunch. Maybe since I mentioned lunch you might understand a little ‘cuz teaching you something about the world is next to impossible if it doesn’t involve food or treats. At least we both did what Mom said to do today. She told us not to look at the sun.
I know…………we were both napping.
Mom…………..this is how I looked during the eclipse thing.
Mom………..this was me dreaming about clipsie catnip. Obviously clipsie things are for sleeping. I wonder if Mom fell asleep at work?????????
