Miss Madie Mittens: Mistress of the Green Tent

Je suis innocent

(More) Breaking News from the Dad of Aggie, Wally, and Madie Mittens:

I went up in the afternoon, and I thought I should give her the run of the short hall; I briefly undid the Great Wall of Boxes so I could get over, but she leapt the one layer of boxes to freedom. She worked her way down the stairs slowly, so I got ahead of her to shut my bedroom door to keep A & W in---they had been skittish since the Comcast man had been clumping around.

With the elders safely locked away, I let MM work her way down the hall, slowly sniffing, as I told her this whole new world was hers for the taking if she just stopped the &%*$* biting. Things were proceeding apace when who strolls out of the kitchen but Aggie. So she wasn't UTB as assumed!

Well, MM was so focused on the floor that she didn't even see Aggie until they were mere feet from each other. Aggie stood stock still, silently, and Madie approached with ignorant confidence. When MM got "too" close for Aggie's tastes, Aggie (without fluffing up) let out a hiss and a serious growl like I've never heard her make before. MM stood her ground and did her "Look-at-me-I'm-so-big-and-tough" stance on her hind legs [it works so well with the fake mice] until---in her enthusiastic bravado---she fell over backwards! Illusion shattered!!

They danced around a bit more, in the kitchen, on the front stairs---both establishing the "flight/fight" boundaries with Aggie winning the rounds on points. No damage was done to either by either. I eventually picked up Madie and opened the bedroom door to see if Wally wanted to join the festivities. He did come out lowly and slowly, but he got within two inches of MM face as she stayed in my arms. I'm sure that took almost every ounce of bravery he had, but he did it.

Well, Kitties, I see now that MY blog has been hijacked by you-know-who three times this week. I think that's quite enough. I mean, yes, I understand how "darling" and "little" she is, but hey! My readers want to see me, Human, and don't forget it!

  4. Oh, my. This is more drama than our human would ever want again, having barely lived through the Annie and Nicki combo. We'll cross our paws for peaceful co-existence, if not deep and abiding friendship. LOL.

  7. Yes, Spitty, you *must* put your paw down on this highjacking. Plus, I hate to tell A&W's dad, but that new one has clearly been possessed by a kangaroo. Kangaroo = biting. I should know, what with Olivia and all. Bite bite bite bite.

  9. Tell MM's human to start a blog for her if he wants to write about her adventures. I'd read it, but I want to see my handsome Spitty laying in his pink bed. As cute as MM is, Spitty is the one for me.

  12. We love the name over here in the Realm. Perhaps Miss Madie Mittens could have a weekly episode with the rest of the time prime Spitty time?
