mostly me, by penelope (high hopes)

Marcy is in the kitchen enjoying an afternoon snack.

Penelope Kitten is prancing around the house singing a song. She has been doing this nonstop for the past three hours.

penelope kitten:  just what makes that little ole ant/think he can move that rubber tree plant/everyone knows -

Penelope Kitten stops suddenly after she rounds the corner and sees Marcy eating.

penelope kitten:  i want some.

Marcy:  No way.

penelope kitten:  i want a treat too.

Marcy:  Tough luck.

penelope kitten:  then i'm going to sit here and sing my song.

Penelope Kitten starts singing her song very loudly in Marcy's face.

penelope kitten:  high hopes/he's got high hopes/he's got -

Marcy:  Stop it. You're bugging me.

penelope kitten:  then give me some.

Marcy:  No. I was here first.

penelope kitten:  i was here second. he's got high apple pie in the sky hoooopes/so anytime-

Marcy:  Stop it!

penelope kitten:  you're gettin' low/just remember that ant -

Marcy gets fed up and walks away.

penelope kitten (happily eating and singing):  whoops there goes another rubber tree... nom nom nom... whoops there goes... nom nom nom...

Marcy (disgusted):  That song is about perseverance to get what you want, Penelope. It's not about being a pest to get it.

penelope kitten (happily eating her kibble):  that's meeeee! penelope the persevering pest... nom nom nom...

  4. Ha! Penelope is sneaky! I knew it! ; ). Also, that picture is freaking amazing! Did you take it? It is so good! I just kept staring at it! I am surprise Marcy tave in and did not result to violence. My Murphy would have not budged with his food. Marcy is softer than she appears.

    Don't tell her I said that!


    1. Hi Jenni!
      I took the photo with my iPhone and just got real close to her. Then I put a filter on it. I feel like all of my good photos are accidents!
      I had a post where Marcy was much much meaner but then I changed it. Sometimes I worry that I go too far with Marcy's meanness and will turn my readers off. It's so hard to know!
      Xo, Cynthia
