Cricket Speaks

CRICKET

(is this thing on?)

(ahem) How come I'm the last one to talk? Is it 'cause I'm the quietest and I hardly ever meow? If Tiger thinks she's going to take over in this new place, she's wrong!!

She's also wrong about being the oldest. Maybe she forgot, but Dad adopted ME first, along with my littermate brother who's at The Bridge now. When he left for The Bridge he was still a kitten and that's when Tiger was adopted to keep me company. I just wanted to set the record straight 'cause Tiger thinks she knows everything. Sometimes when she swats Gino, she swats me too and I don't like that.

When Gramma let Tiger and Gino out of our room I didn't come out. I'm very quiet and when we first got here, I hid for 3 days. So I don't feel comfortable coming out of our room yet even though the Gramma left the door open for a long time.

Usually I rest behind the TV cabinet and when Gramma comes in to take care of us, sometimes I come out to see her and sometimes I don't. If I do, she pets me and headbutts me and tells me what a good girl I am. I'm 13 years old and I have a fang missing, too, and just so you know, it's the SAME one that Tiger has missing. She thinks she's all that, but she isn't! She's crabby and bossy.

Hi Cricket! What a pretty girl you are! We hope you feel more comfortable there soon and get brave enough to roam around outside the room.

You seem a little sensitive, and very sweet, Cricket. Nice to meet you. Good girl for sticking up for yourself as the oldest.

Cricket, I know exactly how you feel. I do not like new things either and people scare me. Maybe I can come purr at you for awhile?

Hi Cricket! You are quite a cutie! We think that it is ok that you are the quiet, shy cat. It is good for every family to have one, because oh, otherwise it would be craziness all the time!

Cricket you're so cute! I totally understand how you feel. I AM the oldest and Pandora insists she's the Alpha girl! Whata brat!

Hmm, 13, crabby and bossy, thinks she knows effurything, sounds just like Zippy. We'll send Speedy in to visit, he won't let her whap yoo. He sez dat alla da cats hasta get along or he'll just sit on dem! It don't hurt (to much) but it stops da trouble maker from moveing. It's very nice to meet yoo.

OK, I might not be older than Tiny (she's going to be 16 in December) and I am definitely NOT SHY, but that doesn't mean she can smack me upside the head when she wants...WHAT IS IT WITH THESE WOMEN WHO THINK THEY CAN JUST SMACK UP UPSIDE THE HEAD? Tiger/Tiny...they are exactly the same and I really feel for you. You've got me on your side. Good luck and I hope you find the courage to smack her back once...just for good measure!! Purrs, Lautrec

Hi Cricket, welcome. It is OK to be a bit shy. We like your name too. Do you chirp like a cricket?

Hi Cricket. We hear that when you are older, it takes a little longer to adjust to changes. We bet you'll be just fine. And we believe you when you say you are the oldest!

Cricket, you aren't even in the header. Perhaps you need to speak up more often so they remember you're there.

Did we miss something? We try to read your posts -- but you're two weeks at your gramma's and we're just finding out? Obviously we missed something. sigh

It's OK to be a little shy, it makes you that much cuter ;) heehee
