Yes – it was nice and sunny on Saturday – which was a REAL TREAT considering Friday night the sky opened up and we had rain, hail, lightning – the whole works!
Anyway – where was I – oh yes…..Saturday sun streaming into the living room with me sitting atop my fresh pile of tissue courtesy of Mom when DING DONG the doorbell rings. It’s some guy wanting to know if we want any of our trees trimmed (we get that a lot out here in the “country”). I go dashing into the basement (my safe spot) and I hear Dad telling the guy “thanks but not today” and I creep back up the basement stairs, peer around the door, and see the coast is clear.
I head back to the tissue and settle back down……
Then I hear something crinkling……I know it’s not tissue because I’m VERY familiar with the sound of tissue and paper bags, and plastic bags and all those things we kitties know so well….it’s a DIFFERENT crinkle and it’s coming from my Dad’s direction as he’s lounging in his recliner.
I’m so fascinated with the sound I go over to him and put my paws up on his knees to see what it is……….he’s opening a crinkly bag of something and taking a smaller crinkly thing out of the bigger crinkly bag! He sees I’m VERY interested and want to know what he has! He lets me sniff one of the small crinklies – it doesn’t have a smell BUT when I press my nose to it – it crinkles! I give it a poke with my paw and it crinkles again!
OH JOY – IT’S A BIG CRINKLY BAG FULL OF LITTLE CRINKLY TOYS FOR ME ME ME!
Mom came into the living room right about then and saw me all excited about the crinklies and laughed. Dad GAVE me a little crinkly and I quick took it in my mouth and went to my tissue pile and burrowed under a piece of tissue with my PRIZE!
OK, so I heard her say something I didn’t understand like “Sam’s not supposed to have candy David!” and Dad said “he’s just playing with it” (which I was) and so whatever all that means doesn’t matter because they let me keep my little crinkly!!!!!
I also know where Dad stashed the BIG bag which is full of little crinkly kitty toys….so when I wear this one out (and I will) I can get MORE MORE MORE!
We kitties are so smart………we know a good crinkly when we see (or hear) one!
