Ask Aunt Foley

                Dear Aunt Foley:  There is a possum outside our window.  Why is a possum coming to our house and what should we do about it?  - Boris K and Minnie.
                Dear Boris K and Minnie:  Oh you don’t want to mess with those possums.  They are vicious little creatures.  Forget everything that Big Vermin has told you about animals.  It is all lies.   In truth there are only rats and squirrels and everything has evolved from them and these possums are just big mean rats who like to play dead and when you go to eat them they eat you.   Please keep away from the possums at all costs.
                Dear Aunt Foley:  We live up in the mountains and the Tanner Brigade is down in the valley.  Mom and I have to climb down the mountain to visit and then climb back up.  Can you install an elevator? – Enzo
                Dear Enzo:  I can do better than that.  I am going to visit you in your dreams and give you the codes I used to put into the computer to upload me wherever I wanted to go.  I went to the White House, to Hollywood, to my friends.  Wherever I wanted.  Just be careful.  You have to fit through all the small tubes that make up the Internet.  It was easy for Pocket and me because we are small but you and your Mom might have some problems.
                Dear Aunt Foley:  Why, before they do terrible things to me at the vet won’t they feed me first?  I think that is adding insult to injury

.  – MacDougal
                Dear MacDougal:   Vets don’t want you to eat because they are going to poke and prod you and stick things where they don’t belong and often when you get stuck in your most sensitive place you say “I think I am going to puke” and then you puke.  And who can blame you?  You just got something stuck in your most sensitive place.  So, to avoid the puking they don’t let you eat.

  1. OMD so agree about the possums and the blood stealers. Have a super Saturday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Okay, we can understand why the dog who is to have a procedure has to miss breakfast. But why do the rest of us have to miss out?

  3. A book! We can't wait to order it and read

  4. Oh I am confused. You entered the Sunday Selfie Blog Hop but I don't see the post? Hope to see your selfie next time

  5. You give such good advice. Our angel brother, MacKenzie, once brought a possum home as if he thought it was a friend. They showed up at the backdoor together asking Mom to let them in. Mac wasn't the brightest bulb in the pack, but he was a sweet cat. We really appreciate your participation in our blog hop.
