Cat Mischief

Monday, August 21, 1961

First, Taffy peed on the mantle and the paint came off.  Mom was mad but I laughed my head off.  Then, she peed in my prize cactus.  I was furious and there stood Ma, guffawing.  Taffy chewed a hole in a bag of potting soil and spread dirt all over.  And that was just the beginning.

Cats are evil. Plain and simple.

I wouldn't have put it that way! (In fact, I didn't, LOL!)

Taffy would make a cute rug in front of the fireplace. Or maybe a cute house slipper for a small, one legged man.

Well, since it was 1961, she's probably good and rotted away by now.

Funny how we forget these things. I remember her being a NICE cat.

Peeing on the mantle is quite a feat of acrobatics. Cats are such silly beasts, to think of such a thing.

The cactus was on the mantle too, and we laughed and laughed imaging her backed up against it's sharp spines (once I got over being furious!).
