From the Mom: Hemingway and Shakespeare introduced their friend, Fluffy, in their Christmas letter. Some of you are meeting Fluffy for the first time. He and the boys talk about all sorts of things and try to figure out humans. This is their message for Valentine’s Day:
Fluffy rolled and bounced around the house as the two cats carried him from room to room. They were all enjoying the sunshine of the day. The relaxing light streaming in through the windows made delightful sun puddles on the floor. Sometimes the cats would let Fluffy lay in the sun with them. They all knew it was still cold outside so they were enjoying being in the warm house with all the food, treats and toys. Fluffy loved being part of this family.
The cats started talking about Valentine’s Day. Fluffy didn’t know what that was. He had enough trouble just figuring out what day of the week it was.
Hemingway, the big black and white cat, tried to explain Valentine’s Day to Fluffy. After all, Hemingway was six years old now. That’s a paw and a claw in cat terms. Fluffy didn’t have paws and he didn’t have claws so he didn’t care. However, both of the cats seemed to take great pleasure in knowing how old they were.
“Fluffy, Valentine’s Day is kind of an important holiday to humans,” Hemingway explained. “Mom has told us that humans send cards, flowers, candies and other gifts on that day. It’s a time when they show others how much they are loved.”
“Why don’t humans show love every day? Why do they have to have a special day?”, Fluffy asked.
Shakespeare, the fluffy orange kitty with the super long tail, spoke up. “Hey Fluffy, that’s a really great question! We never thought about it ‘cuz we show Mom every day how much we love her.”
Hemingway chimed in, “Yes, Fluffy, you’ve hit on something really interesting.”
Mom….Fluffy and I went outside to play and now we want to come in, please.
Proof that Fluffy was outside with Hemingway and Shakespeare.
Fluffy, we love you and we love Mom. Happy Valentine’s Day!!
Dear Readers, we all want to wish you a very special day.
Yes, we hope all of your food is heart-shaped!
