Eartha's Welcome Home Present

Hello, Dogs of the Internet. It is I, Eartha Kitteh.

All you dogs who read this blog know that that dog who is my uncle, Gus, and that other dog who is my cousin, Teka, are in St. Louis for awhile because they went on a ROAD TRIP.

But did you know that this lady I live with, E. Rabbit, went WITH THEM???

And that while she was on this road trip with those dogs, she left ME, Eartha Kitteh, at home in our apartment? ALONE? With only some dude to come in and feed me and cuddle me a few times a day?

Now, it is not that I object to having the apartment to myself for awhile. As long as some dude shows up to feed me once in awhile and clean my box, and as long as I have plenty of cat toys to play with, I am ok on my own. In fact, I stayed on my own for a whole WEEK last year while that lady went to Italy.

But I cannot have her running off to travel with D-O-G-Ses all the time. She was gone for five and a half days and came back with terrier hairs all over her clothes! Only MY hairs are supposed to be all over her clothes.

So when she got back last night, I gave her a PRESENT. Can you guess what it was?

It was a MOUSE. I killed it for her, and left it right in the middle of the kitchen floor, where she would be sure to find it.

I must say, she did not seem terribly impressed with this present. She just sighed, got a paper napkin, picked him up by the tail and dropped him in the trash with my most recent poops and some spinach that had gone bad while she was away.

I will have to think of some better presents for next time. Perhaps she would prefer a small lizard?

Maybe it was the size of the mouse. Try going with a rat next time.

Duke said...

We agree with Barbara! That mouse just wasn't big enough. Go for the biggest rat you can find, Eartha Kitteh!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Teka SHEDS more than two golden retrievers. Allllll the hairs are hers.

Good job on the mouse. Muzzer screams when we bring her dead stuff. E.Rabbitt is more evolved, clearly.

We enjoyed having her with us...will try not to keep her so long next time.

I think it was a wonderful and very thoughtful gift.

Or maybe a bird. I agree that your present was incredibly thoughtful and should have been properly acknowledged. :P

Hee! Hee! Eartha - I just giggled my way through your post! :-) Oh - and I can just imagine that mouse! You sound like a very independent & self-sufficient kitty. I'll bet you keep the doggies well in order!!
