Buckminster & Amber – 27

Amber - Re CaageI can’t believe this! Amber got another cage! It probably cost three times as much as mine! It’s red . . . and quilted! Really. But I’m not surprised. It always goes this way. She’s such a flirt. You won’t believe this: Yesterday the houseman—his name’s Willie—gave her a whole smoked oyster. And what did I get? A cheap, dry over-the-counter cat snack.

And there’s the thing with this new carpet. Have you noticed how well it matches her coat? You can bet she had a heavy paw in its selection—makes a perfect camouflage background that helps her hide from me. Of course there’s no way she can really hide from me, but sometimes I don’t see her coming. She’ll be lucky if one of our servants doesn’t step on her. I don’t really care about the carpet, cause were leaving here anyway. And that red cage is way too effeminate for a hip kat like me.
I just wanted you to know what’s going on.

    I love these stories! You are really good in thinking and talking cat language! LOL! I left this message on your blogspot site but think I will stay with this one for comments. The captchas get me every time! Never get it on first try LOL!

  3. Bucks, it’s simply not fair, I’m with you all the way. And a jolly oyster too – you’d think they could have mollified you with a decent treat… what’s wrong with fresh salmon if it comes to that.?
    As for the cage… frankly I think you’re better off with yours… looks as though you’ve got a better view of things…
    Just get things off your handsome chest any time you want … I’m always hear to lend an ear… or something….
