The Art of Compromise

FRODO: Hey there big sis! Wanna play?

AMARULA: No I certainly do not want to play. Now get down from there — you are in my spot! Only I get to sit at the top of the sofa! It is the perfect perch from which to oversee my domain.

FRODO: Come on! Let’s play! Come up here and get me!

AMARULA: Come down at once!

FRODO: Pfffffffffffffffttttttttttt! Come and get me!

AMARULA: How dare you show me the raspberry! You really have no common sense whatsoever do you? You asked for it….

AMARULA: Whack! Bam!

FRODO: Wheeeeeeee

THE HUMAN aka mom: HEY! What the heck are you two doing?!?

A few minutes later….

AMARULA: I can’t believe the human broke up the fight and is making us share the top of the couch! What of my dignity!? What of a respect for my superiority!?

FRODO: Fight?! I thought we were playing! I thought you were trying to tickle me! Oh Amarula, you have the funniest sense of humor! I LOVE YOU!

AMARULA: Silence you creamsicle cretin!


Here are Amarula’s Friendly Fill-Ins hosted by 15andmeowing and McGuffy’s Reader!

  1. My favorite kind of cookie is _S’mouses (like a S’more but meatier!), chocolate chipmunk cookies and peanut birder cookies.
  2. The famous Mudpie the tortie of course (only a fellow tortie can capture my tortitude and her blog was the first cat blog I read with a tortie as the star–which is of course, our natural role) would play me in a movie about my life.
  3. Love is easy to find! I feel it every time I look in the mirror!
  4. For Valentine’s Day, I just might suspend hostiles between myself and Frodo and Zulu! But Frodo is on real thin ice at the moment!

  1. Frodo, you are just so easy going! How do you cope? The names she calls you; the whapping; the usurping, the ego ? You show the greatest ever Fortitude against the Tortitude. We salute you.

  2. grate answerz two day guys & N joy de sofa warz 🙂

    we hope mudpie seez yur post !!

    heerz two a green spotted puffer kinda week oh end !! ♥♥♥

  3. MOLMOLMOL! This sounds all too familiar! Kylo Ren and Caster love to rough-house and play, but sister Delilah always takes it so seriously and makes such a raucous, claiming her brothers are bullying her. It’s all in good fun though, right? 😉

  4. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. I think Miss Mudpie would do a great job playing you in a movie, my Penny could be her stand-in 🙂 Have a nice weekend and stop fighting!

  5. The kitty dialogue was fun! Cats can be so silly which is great entertainment. I can’t have indoor pets because of allergies but many years ago we had a couple of outdoor kittens and it was a blast watching the romp around. Hopefully, the kitty troops can seize hisses for a peaceful, lovable Valentine’s Day or is this phony and they are truly best buds? I enjoyed reading your fill-ins and to meet you. Have a good weekend!
