Trouble in the Household

I got into deep trouble today. I chased my brother, Charlie, and Mom and Dad were unhappy. They think I was being mean instead of wanting to play. Maybe they were right.


This is Charlie. He was pretty mad, too. He growled and hissed when Mom picked him up. Mom told him to stand his ground and I’ll leave him alone. She’s right, of course. If he wouldn’t run, I wouldn’t chase him.

Barbara doesn’t run from me and I leave her alone.  This is Barbara.


Barbara is the queen. At least that’s what Mom and Dad call her. That means I can only be a princess. Charlie and Oliver aren’t kings because Mom said the Queen holds the ace of trumps. I don’t know what that means but Charlie and Oliver leave Barbara alone unless she wants to play with them.

This is Oliver.


Maybe tomorrow will be a better day.

  1. A good rule is never chase anything you can catch. Bunny rabbits are good to chase. Except the babies. You can actually catch those. And you’ll be proud of yourself and show your people and they’ll get even madder than when you chase kitty cats and they’ll write about it and take your picture and “shame” you. Maybe you should chase bunny rabbits after all. Definitely no kitty cats though!

    • Mister, Now I know that my people don’t think I’m cute all the time. I’ll try to remember your advice about chasing bunnies instead of kitties.
