Boots and Little T with her new bike

“Hello, isn’t that your human over there?”  Says the neighbour’s cat to little T’s Boots.

Bored Boots looks over her shoulders, yawns and stretches lazily before replying “Yes, she’s very pleased with her new bike.”

“What’s that thing behind her?  Is it something I can play with?”

Boots sits up quickly and gives the other cat a warning hiss.

“Don’t you dare!  That’s Cotton Bottom, my human’s favourite toy in the world!”

At the sound of her cat hissing, little T jumps off her bike and quickly rushes to her cat.

“What’s wrong, Bootsy?”  

The other cat snorts.  Boots glares at her then turns to little T.

“Oh for goodness sake human!  How many times do I have to tell you no PDA!”

T looks perplexed, “PDA?”

Exasperated, Boots hisses “Public displays of affection!”  With a huff she turns her back on little T, still looking a bit lost.

“Honestly Bootsy, do you really have to call me human?  I have a name you know!”

Much to Boots’ annoyance, little T follows her.

“Oh for goodness sake human, leave me be!”

“Not till you call me by my name!”

Boots the cat gives up running away from little T and sprawls on the ground and purrs …

“You are my human, therefore, I call you human.” 

“My name is T!”

“Oh whatever, c’mon human. Come and get my tea ready”.

“Oh okay then!”

Says T forgetting about the whole thing, jumps on her bike and follows her cat home.

    adorable. Reminds me of my house… My dog listens to the 2 year olds commands, sit stay… whatever. I think she’s just paying her back for all the dropped people food.

    • That’s cute. T also has a 6 month old doggie called Doc. He also listens to her and sits when told. But not very good when there’s food around 😉

    My daughter lives our new puppy but she now has times when she thinks she is a dog which is worrying. 😉

  3. Kate @ Did That Just Happen?

    Cats are so funny! Great pictures! Love little T chasing after the cat. 🙂

    • Yes they are. Not really a cat person, but little T loves her cat and dog of course. I’ve sort of learned to like Bootsy too 🙂

    I love these posts, the conversations of T with Boots or Doc 🙂 Always make me smile. Lovely photos of T on her bike x

    • Thanks! Doc loves it, I don’t think the cat is easily amused though 😉

    • Hahaha. I don’t speak their language, I just listen and transcribe! 😉
