Jasmine



Jasmine came to live with Gizzy and the Lady Mom about a year after Gizzy was rescued from being a little feral kitten. She and Gizzy like each other and lived together as a two cat household for many years before Millie bounded onto the scene. I decided to try to look at the situation from Jasmine's point of view. She and Gizzy had grown old together very happily and both of them were quite content with the way things were. Jasmine was also not feeling very well when Millie appeared and that may help explain why Jasmine took an instant dislike to Millie. Here was this very energetic kitten disrupting her nice quiet routine and cozying up to her friend Gizzy. Here is what may be going through Jasmine's mind.

I do not like that kitten Millie.
She's far too fast and much too silly.
I don't want to play,
So please go away.
Somebody save me from this pesky Millie.

Karen Jo, I know you from the kitty blogs (I'm aka Rascal and Catzee's mom) though we haven't been kitty blogging much lately. But I saw your comment at Tina's Blip on the Radar and thought "I know her!!!" Are you a sheep / fiber / textile person too???

Millie said...

*snort* She is such a bossy cat. That's just what she'd think!

I love it! I think it's just perfect and describes EXACTLY how Jasmine probably feels!

What a wonderful (and probably accurate) limerick. Jasmine certainly does have an opinion about Millie's place in the household.
