Miss Marplestein

Miss Marplestein, cute as a button
So, I have two cats, or as I like to call them my 'baby girls'.  Actually, in June they will be six years old, so they aren't quite 'baby girls' anymore, rather 'young ladies'.  Factualities aside, they are and always will be my baby girls.  They are near and dear to our hearts, and have a place in our household.  They are like our children (although my husband
would deny it).  And, they are strictly indoor cats.  They have only been 'allowed' outside with Mommy and Daddy, firmly in our arms.

Miss Marplestein is a red tabby.  She is long and lean, and has an angular face - to me, simply adorable.  She has very meak voice, soft and sweet.  Miss M is a Daddy's girl.  She loves her Daddy - loves laying next to him, loves cuddling with him, loves sitting on his desk.  She follows him everywhere. 

This morning, we're drinking coffee in bed with Miss M by our side.  We get up, have our oatmeal, and I dress for work.  Just before leaving, I realize it's still quite dark in our TV room, so I decide to open the blinds.  As I'm opening, I see Miss M outside - yes, outside!  I think to myself, 'is this a reflection in the window?' 'how did she get out there?'...all these thoughts are going through my mind.  It was just a shock to see her out on the patio, looking at me like 'hello, you got a problem?'.  Of course, I quickly picked her up and brought her to safety, in my arms, cozy and warm.  Don't think she liked it though.  Seems the screen in our bedroom window was pushed out.  Not sure if it just 'fell' on its own, or if it had a little prodding from my baby.  Methinks it's the latter.

Then this evening, she's sitting on Daddy's desk, as he's trying to play his game.  As on any desk, there is a pile of papers, books...very slowly, she drops her head and starts to push the debris in her way.  We're sitting there watching her!  Bam, several papers and a book drop to the floor.  Then she sees her sister, realizes if she drops any more she'll hit her, and stops, just waits.  Soon Dulcinea moves along, and Miss M didn't miss a beat...again she dropped her head and pushed until the remaining papers were on the floor.  Then she just licked her paw, stretched across the desk and gave a little 'meow'...It was just the cutest thing ever!

Needless to say, I love my babies.  Just thought you'd enjoy these little escapades and something lighthearted for a change.  Here's to love, here's to pets, and here's to my Miss M!
