The Investor

She did not keep her word.

Morning Scratch publishing delayed for unacceptable reasons

By Bogdan
Morning Scratch editor

Bogdan: How does this happen?!

Investor: What are you talking about?

Bogdan: How could you allow so many days to pass without helping me publish my newspaper? You know I need your thumbs' help!

Investor: I have a job that pays, mister! It puts crunchies in your bowl and temp-tay-shuns at the tip of your claws. It keeps me very busy.

Bogdan: This is unacceptable.

Investor: I'll try to help you Thursday. Let's shake on it.

Bogdan: Fine.

Meezer Monday

By Kat 3
Morning Scratch reporter

It's Jingle Cats time!

Funny things that happen when I play this song:
• Bogdan thinks there are kitties in the house
• Bogdan thinks there are kitties all around the outside of the house
• Bogdan paces back and forth across the downstairs looking for any signs of any cats
• I think there are real cats in the computer
• Sara looks around the room all confused
• Mom giggles

I'm not bad; I'm good

By Mr. Bogdan
Morning Scratch editor

I've been told by The Investor I will get only coal for Christmas if I "keep up this attitude." She says Santa Paws isn't very happy with me. She says that I haven't even tried to improve my behavior even as Christmas nears.
"Lookit this face! This is the face of an angel."

The Investor's examples of recent badness on my part include:
(1) Hitting the Investor on the lips just this week and drawing blood;
(2) Hitting the Investor's friend in the face and drawing blood on her forehead;
(3) Hitting Sara in the face just this morning;
(4) Eating Christmas tree needles and throwing up all over the floor;
(5) Growling at the Investor last night when she picked me up;
(6) Trying to eat our doggy friends' Christmas presents last night while the Investor was trying to wrap the gifts;
(7) Getting on the kitchen counter and munching on the tomatoes;
(8) WAIT, INVESTOR. This is enough. I think this is unfair.

What about all the good things I do? I hardly ever hit the Man. I sit on the Man's and the Investor's laps. I purr and make the Investor happy about it. I let Sara give me a bath - SOMETIMES.
Sometimes I eat things I shouldn't ... but what's important is that I eat things I should, like crunchies. And I can't help that I misunderstood, when the Investor put treats on the floor that weren't for me. I think it's perfectly reasonable to have believed those doggy treats were for me. Why else would they be on the floor?

The Bogdan verdict: I'm a good kitty. All these "bad" things are just misunderstandings.

Here are the girls getting Christmas ready:
Kat 3: "Hey, Sara. You should come down here. These hanging toys are great!"

Secret Paws Saturday!

Kat 3's quality-control check: "One, two, three ... yes! Secret Paws are all here and ready to go"

Two nights ago, Sara and I helped Mom (Bogdan's edit: She's called The Investor) wrap and package gifts to our Secret Paws!

Sara made very important decisions on shipping supplies.
"Let's see. These look to be the purrfect size for mailing mousies."

I made sure every box would be sent out with the smell of Kat 3!
"It's my way of saying, Hello!"

We are very excited. The packages were mailed today. Secret Paws is tons of fun.

Oh, and where was Mr. Bogdan?
Hanging with his new friend, Mr. S. Kitty.

Bogdan makes a friend

By Bogdan
Morning Scratch editor

As winner of the "So Scary it's Cute" category in the Halloween Costoom Contest, Bogdan won a sock kitty from Monty Q. Kat. The sock kitty came right up to the door the other day, in a box!
So yesterday, Bogdan, me, and the sock kitty hung out.
Here are the papparazzi photos.

"Hey, what's up??"

"This cat ain't bad. He's got a cool cat hat. It fits me well."

"We are buddies now."
