It’s a Wonderful Month!

Hemingway, why did you mess up the rug?

Hemingway and rug

There are many reasons!  First of all, I messed it up ‘cuz I could!  Secondly I was thinking about all the hours Mom has been spending away from home and I got a little mad so I figured messing up the rug would get her attention.  Then suddenly it hit me…….

I did not hit you!

I’m sure you did, but what I meant was I all of a sudden realized why Mom has been gone so much.  She’s out shopping for all my birthday presents.  My birthday is only 12 days away now and I’m going to be 5!!!  That’s one whole paw!!!

Shakespeare and chairI hate to burst your bubble filled with catnip, but Mom’s not out shopping for your birthday presents.  She’s been busy practicing for her big choir concert at church.  Here’s a picture of the choir.  Mom’s the one in the red robe….hehehehe


You think you’re so funny!

My eyes may look like they’re shut, but I’m glaring at you, Shakespeare!

I don’t care.  Oh, and by the way, this is the way to mess up a rug.  You have to protect it or the humans will straighten it out again.


Kitty Khoir……Our New Activity

Since Mom seems to spend so much time at choir, we decided we should organize a kitty khoir so we can keep busy, too.  Besides, then we could have family events and Mom says that’s always a good thing.

Of course I can read music.  Can you direct a Kitty Khoir?

Who’s going to be in the kitty khoir?

Well, there are four basic sections in a human choir.

How do you know?

Mom told me.  Anyway, we have the sopranos who are the girl humans.  They sing the high squeaky notes.

Oh……..I know!!!!  We can get kittens to sing soprano.  They’re always squeaking and making those really high noises.

Good idea.  Then we have the altos.  They sing lower than the sopranos and they are also usually the girl humans.

So maybe the mommy kitties could sing that part.  I’ve heard they sometimes sing to the baby kittens to calm them.  I wonder if my mommy sang to me.

Mom sings to us now and she’s an alto so I think we have that part figured out perfectly.

What’s next?

Next we have the tenors.

Ten or what?

Tenors.  Those are usually the boy kitties who don’t sing really low.

I still don’t understand ten or what.  Maybe it should be the six-toed cats.  You know the ones I’m talking about.  That human who has the same name as you had six-toed cats. They have ten or twelve toes on just two feet sometimes……and they can have even more toes! So they would be ten ors.

I don't know what the number of toes you have has to do with singing, but I think we figured it out.

I’m not sure that’s right, but it’s making sense to me and since my name is involved there must be something to it  so let’s go for it.  Finally we have the basses.

BASSES????  We can’t have fish in our kitty khoir!!!  They would never last.

Relax.  It’s one of those human things with their words again.  It’s spelled bass but actually pronounced base, like first base in baseball.  Those are the male kitties who sing really, really low.

So we can get the old male kitties that are crabby.  They’re used to growling and that usually sounds like rumbling.

I think we’ve got it figured out!  Now we just have to get some volunteers and set up a practice schedule.  Mom’s going to be so surprised that we’re getting involved in some of her activities.

Hemingway…………can we stop all this planning now and go get something to eat?  I’m sure we can find the treats if we start looking.
