An Interview with the Kittens

GEORGE

Because my outstanding work on the 2009 Birdie Census and previous interviews with The Champ and The Perches, I've been asked (by Mom) to come out of retirement and do a brief interview with each of the new kittens that have recently found their forever home with us.

First I'd like to ask Miss Dixie Belle, aka Dixie Cupp, to come to the table.

Miss Belle, or do you prefer to be called Miss Cupp, can you tell us a little about yourself?  Don't be shy, just speak right into the microphone.

DIXIE

Um...I'm not sure what my new name is. What should I say?

GEORGE

Tell our legions of fans where you were born and things like that.

DIXIE

This is my official shelter picture and I'm a tortoiseshell cat.  I was told I was born outside around the end of June and was brought to Desert Paws Rescue when I was about 10 days old.  Then I lived with a nice lady who was my foster Mom and she fed me from a bottle and played with me and all the other kittens who lived there.  She called me Sabrina but this lady here says my name is Dixie.  I don't remember my Catmom. 

GEORGE

Thank you, Miss Belle-Cupp.  I'll get back to you in a minute, but first I want to say hello to Miss Coco Chanel.

COCO

Uh, hi.  Should I say where I was born?

GEORGE

Yes, go ahead and don't be afraid.  We're all friends here.

COCO

Well, my story is just like my friend Sabrina's, wait, I mean Dixie's. This is my official shelter picture and I'm a siamese.  I was brought to the same foster home when I was very little and my foster Mom was nice.  She called me Samantha and I'm about 3 1/2 months old.  Then I was adopted by a man and lady who said this is my forever home now and they will call me Coco.

GEORGE

Yes, that's right.  All of us were adopted and this is our forever home.  It's a good home and the man and lady are your Dad and Mom now.  They love cats a lot and will take good care of you.

DIXIE

That's good, 'cause you know what? 

COCO

I'll tell him!  When a cat or dog is adopted from Desert Paws Rescue, their life is saved, so we're glad to be here.

GEORGE

Well, let me introduce the rest of us here.  As you know, I'm George and I'm 17 years old. I'm not well and have kidney disease, but for now I'm doing OK. Then Tipper is next and she's 11.  Max is the only black and white one and he's 9, and Misty is 8.  We're not from the same Catmom but we're a cat family now.  I must add that we were all very surprised to hear and smell you girls when you arrived. since neither Mom or Dad said a word about adopting a new kitten.

DIXIE

Did he just say we smell?

COCO

We don't smell!  But we're new here so we smell like our foster home, not like this home.

DIXIE

Oh.  Well, George, we're as surprised as you all are.  We were happy at our home, then one day our foster Mom brought us to this place where there were a lot of other kittens and cats in cages.  All kinds of people stopped to look at us and talk to us.  Then, before we knew what was happening, we were in a box

COCO

and when we got out of the box, we were here! 

GEORGE

Well, thank you Dixie and Coco.  I hope you won't be offended or take it personally if one of us hisses at you. This is only until we get used to you being here, of course.  We need time to adjust to being a family of 6 cats, not 4.   'Specially Misty, since she's a little upset about not being the baby of the family any more.

MISTY

I'm more than "a little" upset, George...I'm a LOT upset!

GEORGE

Alright, Mist...just settle down.  And remember, all of us, except you, had to adjust each time a new kitten was adopted.  These girls needed a forever home just like we all did, and Mom and Dad saved their lives.

MISTY


Hmmm...I never thought of it that way.  Yes, you're right, George.  All kitties deserve a forever home.

More About the Babies

TIPPER

Mom, we need to talk to you about these 2 new kittens.

MOM

I know, aren't they cute?

TIPPER

Yes, very cute.  But, I want to kn....

MISTY

I want to know why they're here!  Are they staying?!

TIPPER

And I want to know why one is wearing a PURPLE COLLAR!  You know purple is MY color!!

MOM

She's a Meezer and her name will be Coco Chanel.

TIPPER

That's nice, but what about the coll.....

MOM

And the other baby is a tortoiseshell and her name will be Dixie Belle.

MISTY

But Mom, why are they here...in our house?!!

MOM

Well, Dad and I went to PetSmart for food and litter and they were having an adoption fair.   Our new babies are from a foster home that had 10 kittens from 3 different Momcats.  They were found when they were just about 10 days old and had to be bottle fed.  Their foster Mom loved them so much, she said she wouldn't let these 2 girls be adopted unless they were adopted together because they're bonded.  We knew they needed a forever home, so we adopted both of them. 

TIPPER

Well, that's all very sweet, but what about the purple collar thing?

MOM

When we moved from Whisk-onsin to Arid-zone, I threw away the old kitten collar you all wore beause I didn't think we'd be adopting more babies.  So, I had to get kitten collars for Coco and Dixie and I looked for other colors but could only find yellow and light purple.  Don't worry, Tipp, when Coco gets older, she'll probably wear a yellow collar or some other color.

GEORGE

She'd better not wear BLUE!

MAX

Or RED!!

TIPPER

So, she'll be wearing MY color 'til her neck is too big for the kitten collar?

MISTY

And they'll live here forever?

MOM

Yes and yes.

Outraged Sisters

MISTY

What are these things?


 
TIPPER

They're babies, baby cats.  They're called kittens

MISTY

Those things aren't kittens.  I'm a kitten!

TIPPER

Sorry Mist, but you're not a kitten and haven't been one for a long time.  You're 8 years old and you're a senior catizen now, like all of us.

Mom and Dad brought these 2 babies home.  Aren't they cute?

MISTY

Cute!!  I'M cute.  I'M the baby of the family, right?

TIPPER

Not anymore. 

MISTY

Wait a minute.  Hmmm...I could be wrong, but it looks like that little black one is wearing a purple collar.

TIPPER

WHAT?!  She can't wear purple.  Purple is MY color!!

MISTY & TIPPER

Mom...where are you?  We need to talk, RIGHT NOW!

No Bags for Us

GEORGE

Mom says this reminds her of when we lived in Whisk-onsin.  She used to bring groceries home in paper bags and we loved to get in them, 'specially me.  Now, here in Arid-zone, the stores don't use paper bags so we haven't had a good bag since we moved here.  No fair!!

Hmmm...does this mean Mom could make 4 other cats with our couch cathair?

Not on MY Watch!

MISTY

Wait a minute.  Whack a WHAT!?!?

Fixing Mom's Hair

TIPPER

I fix Mom's hair at night, in bed.  Sometimes I get so carried away she wakes up and moves into the guestroom, muttering the whole way about not being able to get a decent nights sleep with 4 cats on the bed!  Then Misty and I run down the hall ahead of her and if we make it into the guestroom, she kicks us out.
