This week I am writing from my cat Teddy’s perspective…


Today the fourth of July it be
That means fireworks will boom
And that really irks me
Those things cause me to zoom
And under the bed to flee

Teddy chats…


 Hi, Peoples.  It’s me, Teddy.  Mama said I could stop in at the Tuesday Chatter Cafe to say hello today and show you my new favorite place to sleep.

Mama is getting new kitchen cabinets and there is one just perfect for me.

Doesn’t this look like it was made for me?

The best part is that Jack doesn’t get up on the kitchen counter so he won’t get in my space like he usually does.

Mama says not to get used to it because when the right cabinet comes and is installed it will have a door so I won’t be able to get in it.  I don’t know what she means about a right cabinet changing things. This cabinet is in the middle so the right cabinet shouldn’t change anything.  She can be confused sometimes and often confusing.

Purrs to all,

Teddy talking today…

Mama said I could chat with you today.
Usually not much happens around here but the other day
I knew something was up when I got put in the cage.


Jack wanted to help get me out but like me
he has paws and no hands so couldn’t open the door.
He is a pest but I gotta say he was a trooper and tried his
best to help me.


 My doctor is a very nice guy and loves cats
but he is still the man with the thermometer and needle.
This time, there was a shot but no thermometer.
Do you know where the thermometer goes?
It’s not a place things are supposed to go into only out of.


Oh, and the scale. I have been on a diet. Really I have.
I have been hungry, so very hungry since the last time I saw him.
And I gained 2 pounds!


I was a little upset and embarrassed.
The hug made me feel much better.
He said not to worry about it but to try not to gain anymore.

Then it was back in the cage for the ride home.



Believe me, when I say there is no place like home!

That’s it for my Tuesday Chatter.
