Scritchy's To Do List and Other Knitting Fables
Oliver always liked to have a nice studio portrait taken of him and Peaches to use on their Christmas cards. Peaches could only be thankful that this year's shot wasn't as bad as that of the last three years. She was still planning on knocking over and breaking the 8" x 10" framed photo Oliver put in the living room as usual.
Sometimes it had been too long between brushings and Jasper couldn't bear to face the world.
"Can you take me back to the shelter, pleeeeease? Or just abandon me on the side of the road somewhere. At this point, I'm not picky."
Lavinia's person had a passion for Edwardiana and liked to dress Lavinia up in lace. Lavinia yakked up a hairball on said lace as often as possible.
After getting his new hamster house, Scritchy mentally made out his to do list for the day:
1) Sleep in house all day.
2) Eat house at night.
3) Bite owner while she was cleaning up the resulting blue droppings.
Lucky had always felt he was a lion trapped in a cat's body.
Anna had taken the phrase "purse dog" a little more literally than Mickey thought necessary.
"Maybe I shouldn't have peed on her last four boyfriends."
Nothing made Sprig and Sprog feel closer than wearing their matching sweaters. Unless it was sniffing each other's butts.
"Turn me into a Koopa, will you? I am totally hitting 'reset' on your game the next time you play Super Mario."
