Little Snookie

Well, things have gone from bad to worse here.  First they disappear for the day without telling me why - just a quick breakfast and ta-ta.  Half a morning doing nothing but sleep and play when I can be bothered.  Still, at least there is no one to tell me to keep away from the net curtains or wallpaper.  Then at 11 o'clock this Rosemary person turns up and talks to me.  Still, she is very nice and looks to see if I have enough food.  She even plays with me!  But then she disappears!

But huh!  When they finally do bother to come back the younger one produces this brown thing she calls a "rabbit".  Well, even I could see it wasn't alive - I mean, don't animals run around and eat grass and twitch their noses??  This one certainly doesn't.  Silly woman.  Still, it was good for kicking around and biting and if she wants to think it's real that's up to her.

Well, later we settled down for a nice cosy evening with me on the settee while they watch TV when she puts this rabbit thing on her knee and starts stroking it.  Now call me old-fashioned, but I'm sorry, I'm the only one who gets cuddles and stroked by her.  What a traitor.  I just looked through her.  I think she got the message.

Yours, grumpily


Note:  "Rosemary" is our cat-sitter who we found through a local vet.  She pops in twice a day when we go on daytrips.  She and Snookie are firm friends.  She has a cat called Boris.

NOTE to Pauline: I put the rabbit on my knee to see what Snookie would do.  He got up, came forward a little, glared at the rabbit and looked through me as if he didn't know me or wondered if I'd replaced him with another pet.  It was heartbreaking and he wouldn't go near me for the rest of the evening.  Proof that animals do have feelings.
