Write, take naps, and take another nap

There is a new kitten in the bathroom and her name is …

Mrs. Hodges brought home a kitten. She is living in the upstairs bathroom right now. Hopefully she will be out soon, I would like to meet her.

I am a rather large animal and the kitten is small, but I promised Mrs. Hodges I will be gentle when I do get to meet the kitten.

Charlie, my assistant, and I hold our weekly meetings in my new clubhouse. We don’t have a door we can close, but we rarely talk about anything that the other cats or Mrs. Hodges can’t listen too. When we have secrets to tell, we just whisper.

Martha, a dog and my dearest friend, has arthritis.

She couldn’t get up on her hind legs on her own. My typist, Mrs. Hodges, had to help Martha up. Once she was up she could walk, but it was scary to see my friend so weak. Mrs. Hodges thought Martha might be on her last legs. They are her only legs so of course they are her last legs.

This Christmas give a gift from the heart

The sun was shining in the window in a narrow beam onto the carpet. I moved over and gave the sunbeam to my Vice-President Charlie.
