mostly me, by penelope (april fools' day)




Penelope Kitten is noisily bopping around the house while Marcy tries to nap.

penelope kitten:  la di da da da... dee da da... hi marcy.

No response.

penelope kitten:  oh marcy.

No response.

penelope kitten:  marcy marcy marcy marcy marcy marcy marcy marcy-

Marcy:  WHAT?!!!

penelope kitten:  we're out of friskies. and they aren't making anymore.

Marcy:  No way, Penelope.

penelope kitten:  way.

Penelope Kitten continues to bop around. Marcy tries to go back to napping.

penelope kitten:  la di da da... no more friskies... dee da... no more friskies... da da dum dum...

Marcy (becoming concerned):  Where did you hear that?

penelope kitten:  on the news.

Marcy (alarmed):  Are you sure?

penelope kitten:  so sure. the guy with the toupee said so.

Marcy (panicking):  Does Cindy know?

penelope kitten:  yes.

Marcy (aghast):  Is that why she went to Texas?  To find Friskies?

penelope kitten:  ummm... yeah yeah. that's right. she can't find any.

Marcy:  OH MY GATO!

penelope kitten:  you're doomed.

Marcy:  OH MY GATO!

Marcy races around the house in a blind rage. At one point she even madly runs in circles chasing her tail.

penelope kitten:  marcy.

Marcy continues to freak out.

penelope kitten:  oh marcy marcy marcy... marcy marcy -

Marcy:  WHAT?!

penelope kitten:  april fool.

Penelope Kitten impishly runs off to the next room.

Marcy (seething and stunned and trying to catch her breath):  Little sisters should be outlawed.

  2. My pup literally will pounce on me when she wants me to get up - nothing like being woken from sleep by a 50lb dog bouncing off your chest! In that respect, cats are better, hehe.

    1. Yikes! I hope she does this at a reasonable hour at least. With cats, it's about 5am. Ah well. They're our little stinkers and we do love them!

  3. Oh man! No Friskies?! Cruelest April Fool's joke ever. I am such a nut. I have fallen for every single April Fool's joke today. If I were Marcy, I would have pounced on Penelope. Marcy is showing great restraint. Seeing this side of her makes me like her even more!

  4. Who is the news guy in the toupee? Is he on FOX? Do you kitties watch FOX? No wonder you're angry. You need to switch to PBS.

    1. penelope kitten is so dumb. she means Dallas Raines, the guy with the blonde wig, shiny suits, orange complexion, and blinding teeth on NBC.
      we don't like PBS. we like the sports and nature channels. especially tennis

  5. What a cute photo of P-kitty...I can see the naughtiness building in her eyes! In my case it's the older sister (Mary) that's the pest....she's always starting something!

    1. It's so funny how every cat has a different personality. Penelope really is the instigator but she always comes off as innocent. lol
