MOMMIE'S NEW EARS
“Sparkles! Get off that pile of papers in the office! Right NOW!!”, Mommie yelled. She was calling from the kitchen. Yesterday she couldn't hear me if she stood in the doorway
to the office.
What is going on? Even last night it was scary. Mommie heard me scratching on the front door and she heard me while standing in the kitchen. I thought Mommie was kind of deaf. Uncle Tom can hear me from anywhere in the house,
but Mommie had to be within a few feet before she could hear me.
I have a feeling life is not going to be the same since Mommie got her new “ears”. I heard her and Uncle Tom discussing how much better Mommie could hear since
she got new ears. I will have to be much quieter or quit doing some of the things I used to do when Mommie couldn't hear – like jumping of the pile of papers in the office. She will probably hear me when I jump up on Uncle Tom's favorite chair, too.
Patches doesn't do anything challenging anyway, but “challenge” is my middle name and I WILL find a way to do things a little more quiet now.
Sparkles “Challenge” Catnipper – has kind of a neat
ring to it doesn't it?
Crumbling cookies!! Did someone say crumbling cookies? I LOVE cookies. Don't you?
Of course Mommie had said “that's the way the cookie crumbles”.
I didn't see any cookies, crumbled or otherwise. What did she mean? Is she going to bring me cookies? If she is, I hope they are coconut cookies – they are the tastiest. Yum yum!!!
Mommie likes chocolate chip cookies. I probably won't
get any if they are chocolate chip because Mommie will eat my share – with a mouth stuffed with cookies and saying: “Sparkles, you need to watch your diet; I will help you by eating your share.”
it with Patches we decided it was some saying that only humans understand because we didn't see any cookies coming our way.
