TODAY I'M JOINING MY BUDDY SAMMY FROM
Today's poem is brought to you by the letter
When I came to live here I learned all about ...
I am told I was a bit of a hand full. I often heard Milky-Way (the first feline of the family) never did this or that. I was adventurous from day one. I was my own girl
still am and I marched to a different drummer.
Love learns to be flexible
Love opens your
humans eyes to new things
Love is victorious over of all things
(even when caught red pawed in a big cold machine)
Love is for an eternity
Mom here: As a kitten, Madi conquered every surface of the house in her first 6 months. Everything conquered was here with our first cat but he never tried any.
The best of her conquests were:
1. jumped on the Grandfather clock.
Madi's route was to get on the 7th step from the bottom, calculate a perfect jump through the stair rails to the top of the clock. We could not move the clock so we wrapped it in a quilt secured with duct tape. It stayed that way for several month.
2. she walked across the mantle to get to the top of the 8' secretary where she sat until her Dad came home. When he walked in the door she let out the most victorious MEOW. And she had been chewing on the finial. Again we could not move the mantle but we set the white chair (shown in 8/28/16 post) in the middle of the family room.
3. any chance she got she would hop up in the fridge too. And had a hissing fit when the door was closed.
