knock knock

who's there? Dylan and Austin, our very nice neighbor children.

I need to set the stage for all of you. It was close to 9:00 at night when the Cuddler was in the kitchen washing dishes and she heard the soft knocking. When she answered the door, there were our two sweet neighbors in the dark with flashlights. They wanted to know if it would be OK if they looked in our yard for their cat.

The Cuddler was struck with fear. She went to the cat carrier on our porch and asked Dylan what his cat looked like. She showed him the scared kitten in the carrier. In unison, Austin and Dylan start shouting Ruby!!! Ruby!!!

See, what had happened was, is that the Cuddler thought Ruby was a stray kitten so she was going to get Ruby spayed. When she got home that day, she had lured an unsuspecting Ruby into the carrier. Lucky for Ruby, her rightful owners came for her before the Cuddler shipped her to Jackson, had her organs removed and her ear tipped.

Needless to say, the Cuddler is not popular with our neighbors. She has tried to explain the situation, but she is still the weird lady who steals children's' pets

However, it looks like Ruby has forgiven her. Here she is in our tree.



Love, the Plum

  1. The question is, have you convinced them to get her fixed or will there be kittens in your near future!?!?!?! Maybe you got your point across? Bravo!!!
