AMARULA: So the human is a little miffed with Frodo who has been grounded indoors until he learns what areas of the backyard he is supposed to stay away from! Hee Hee Hee! So it started something like this…I noticed Frodo hanging out in the backyard staring longingly at the rock garden area that the human has declared a no-go zone until her rock garden plants take root.
AMARULA: Hey there Frodo? Whatcha doing? Why are you sitting here so close to the rock garden? Why not go take a look?
FRODO: Mom and Zulu said I’m not supposed to Amarula! They’re worried I will dig up all the seeds and baby plants!
AMARULA: What!! As if you could ever hurt a baby! Come on, I’ll go with you. It can’t hurt to take a little look can it?
FRODO: Well that sure sounds like a good idea Amarula!! What could it hurt!?
AMARULA: What indeed??!! Let’s go!
AMARULA: Now you take a good look around Frodo! Don’t be afraid to really dig stuff up. I’ll just stay here
out of sight in the shade so you can have all the fun cause that’s just the kinda cat I am!!
FRODO: Boy! Gosh oh golly Amarula you sure are a swell friend!
AMARULA: That’s right Frodo! Make yourself at home! Become one with the rocks!!
FRODO: Oh Boy this is soooooooooooooo fun!
FRODO: WOW! I wonder what is hiding in between all these rocks!
AMARULA: That’s right Frodo, stick your head right in there! Think of all the exciting things you will find!
FRODO: OH no Amarula! I think I’m stuck!! Help!
AMARULA: Don’t you worry there Frodo, I see the human making a beeline for you right this minute!! And she doesn’t look happy! Mmmmmwwwwahahahahahaha!
AMARULA: Well, don’t say I didn’t warn you. I predicted that Frodo and Zulu were just too young to handle the responsibility that comes with having your very own catnip patch in your backyard (well, MY backyard technically–no matter what the human says– but you know what I mean). I told the human that only I should be allowed to play among the catnip’s lush leaves. I knew that only I was mature enough to explore its sweet, intoxicating nectar without becoming a victim of its trance-inducing side effects. Some were not so lucky…
AMARULA: Zulu, believing that bathing himself in catnip made him more appealing to the ladies, was the first to go
AMARULA: It isn’t pretty, is it?
AMARULA: Frodo lasted a bit longer, his youth (and I would argue, his lack of IQ) gave him a higher tolerance for the catnip’s hallucinogenic affects.
AMARULA: But eventually, he too fell victim to the herb’s siren call of stupefaction.
AMARULA: Feel free to look away, dear readers! It is quite appalling. Don’t let this happen to your beloved felines!!
AMARULA: And finally, where once a proud herb stood lush and tall, there is now only desolation and the faint smell of cat tears!
FRODO: In honor of international cat day, I was able to dig up one of the ONLY photos in existence of all of the trio together! Normally Amarula does not deign to allow Zulu and I to get so close but, because she was so soundly sleeping, Zulu and I were able to sneak up on her and we all had a nap together!!
This is a photo of us all together the moment BEFORE Amarula opens her eyes and gets the surprise of her life when she realizes we are all together!
Bingo! She sees us! Just look at those eyes open in shock! Hee Hee
FRODO: Mom just gave us all some extra treats to celebrate International Cat Day!! Yummy! I hope cats everywhere get extra treats today!!
FRODO: I really don’t think it’s fair that Amarula can go out whenever she wants and she gets to go out without a harness! There has to be a way outta here!
ZULU: I know what you mean Frodo. It just isn’t fair! And she has such a smug look!
FRODO: I can’t even stand to look at you right now Amarula! I am so jealous!
FRODO: Quick Zulu, I’ll hold the window up and you make a run for it! At least one of us should taste real freedom!
ZULU: Forget it Frodo. It’s useless. I can’t figure out how to get rid of the screen!
FRODO: Hey Zulu what are you staring at?
ZULU: I am in the middle of a staring contest with that dastardly red squirrel who lives under the garage!
ZULU: Just look at that smug face!
FRODO: What’s he so smug about Zulu?
ZULU: He keeps taunting me by coming almost so close that I can catch him!
FRODO: Why can’t you get him big brother?
ZULU: Because no matter how hard I look, I just can’t find the ladder to get up this tree!
