The Ruby Rose Report: The Check Up

  I like going on car rides. I sit in the safety of my travel bag and watch the sky through the back window, feeling the engines rumble and hum. But, when I am held in the front seat, it can only mean one thing: The vet. What had I done? My work was exemplary. There is no vomiting or limping. My poop is solid, well-shaped, and tastes great out of the oven. (I know many of you find this behavior disgusting, but humans have been eating poop for years without knowing it. Why do you think you must poke the Pillsbury Doughboy to get pasty? And have you ever asked yourself where elves living in the middle of the woods get fudge?) I am a post-pandemic baby and am well-adapted to the new rules. Instead of being cheesed off that I have to wait in the car until it is time for the vet to see me and that both of my parents can't go into the office, I am happy one is allowed, remembering those cold days of my youth when I had to solo the visit.

Foley's Tales From Rainbow Bridge: Tom Cat at the Power of Forgiveness

  Black Bart's day of reckoning had arrived. When he was on the mortal side, he was a kitty with an attitude. He was aggressive with other cats and often attacked.

It was enough to make my heart cease. Four months old with a body that won’t quit That girl drive me out of my wits She has the most extended blonde hair.  And she is wearing a visor with flair Oh, she is a little tease If only she could understand my desperate pleas I splash the water, trying to get near But my Mom held me tight in fear Come on, Mommy, I am getting bored It's been six months. Its time to cut the cord Oh no, the baby girl is getting cold If only I were bold I would escape from Mommy’s arms Swim towards my love and seduce her with my charms I watched her go, knowing I wouldn’t see her for awhile And then she turned and gave me her most beautiful side I looked at Mom and it was time to get out of the wate
