Thankful Thursday

Kitties, it's Fui back again. Today, I am being the bigger mancat. Because I am going to say something shocking, something outrageous. I am going to say thankyou to Kitten the Vet Cat. Kitten the Vet Cat and I have a complicated relationship. We would hang out on either side of my glass back door, pulling faces at each other and enjoying the sun puddles together. He would rub his smells in my courtyard, then I would go out and rub over them with my smells.
He would also rub his smells on my mum when she went to work, which meant I had to spend time rubbing my smells back on her when she got home. He was a little affection thief, too. These were some of the reasons we developed a pantomime rivalry. Also, I think I heard him tease me about being fat one day when I was eating my Fancy Feast which is so not true. And anyway, he is one to talk.
He did do me a big favour though, and that was look after my mum. Sometimes mum would work in the afternoon with my friend Greta, which was good. A lot of the time though, she worked in the morning which could be quite intimidating and sometimes a bit sad. Kitten would keep my mum company and be a good friendly face. When my dad had to go away last year, Kitten waited with them for the taxi to come and then looked after mum when she was a bit upset. So thankyou, Kitten, for being my mum's friend. Thankyou for letting her practice clinical observation skills without trying to chomp on her too often. And thanks for giving her a giggle. You're kind of an allright mancat and I might even miss you. But don't go getting a big head over it, your cheeks are chubby enough already!
Right, that's enough soppiness for one day. Hey, , get a load of these cheeks!

Whoa Fui! What did you do to my sister Ginger? She passed out cold...and there was the sound of a BIG girl hitting the floor.

You're such a cheeky boy.

Kitten the Vetcat was very good to your mom, looking after her so it's the right thing to do to thank him properly. I know we will miss him when you move away too. He is very cute.

xoxo Cory & Ginger and the rest of us too!

I hate to admit it as much as you do, Fui, but sometimes kitties outside the family are helpful to our humans! That was nice of you to thank Kitten the Vetcat for his help.

We knew you didn't mind him so much and would miss him!

Kitten is a cutie and a good kitty to boot for looking after your mum. I know you will miss him.

Very sweet post about Kitten! He looks like my Lucky. Is he a BIG boy like Lucky...a 14 pound puddle of fur?
