Hello, this is The General. I recently learned about the humiliations contained in Carol’s last post. What nerve she has telling the world how I got stuck in the secret door! In my defense, that door was made for a cat. A cat! Do you know how squishy cats can be?
So my getting stuck should come as no surprise. Heck, I’m PROUD I got stuck! What kind of pathetic dog would I be if I didn’t?
Do they want me to be like this skinny nincompoop?!
Hello. For those of you that don’t know me, my name is Carol. I’m a cat and this is my blog. Tonight I am moderating a debate between my brothers, Walter and Sherman [aka The General], and our outside neighbor cat [and my personal mentor], Baby Girl. My sister, Eggnog, has graciously agreed to transcribe the debate, so it’s airing nearly Live!
After drawing twigs, the order was determined to be The General, Walter, and Baby Girl. I asked all of my participants to keep the discussion polite and respectful. After all, this is a family blog Continue reading →
The General has taken to watching quite a lot of news lately. I thought he was sleeping with the television on, but he claims he’s just resting his eyes. [His eyes may be resting, but his lungs aren’t – what a snore!]

I’m back! Our moms went on vacation and took my computer with them. I would have used our person that’s away at college [but home for the summer]’s fancy computer, but if you remember my last post – from eons ago – our sister, Ethel, has laid claim to our person’s bedroom and won’t let me in!
You see, our plan to fortify the staircase with The General’s troops to keep Ethel out of our person that’s away at college’s bedroom was a complete failure.
Fortunately for The General, his forces sustained no losses, though there were a number of casualties. Unfortunately, Ethel is still occupying the room and keeping all of us out!
This should be ME.
I’m sure you’re wondering, with such thoughtful strategizing, how did Ethel manage? It’s embarrassing to admit, but she outwitted all of us. Continue reading →
After a surprisingly brief discussion on the sofa, while also knitting and watching a true-crime HBO documentary, the Joint Chiefs made a decision. Citing the tendency of the troops to spill out of their basket and clog up the entry way, Little Mom suggested moving them to a more “out of the way” location. Out of the way?! Frankly, I find such callous disregard for my soldiers’ contributions offensive!
Then, LOUD Mom had the audacity to suggest they sort through my troops and GET RID OF the ones I don’t use!!! Continue reading →
