I am so excited! Mom just got an email from my country cousins. They live a very different life from me. Their humans let them go outside unsupervised and they have some really scary sounding adventures. Here’s what their latest email said.
Dear City Cuzin Christy,
Anyhow, we wanted to try sum of the things we herd about …Don’t care much for Canned fud, cuase ya can’t git it out, an it keeps goin back inside.
We find its much easier just to have the naybors over for lunch, then ya catchem an eatum. Lot easier than canned.
Here tho its pretty much the same. Git up, do yur bizness, git out in da fields and see whos runnin round. Maybe catch a mouse fur lunch, (I finished half a yesterdees bird fur breakfast) then go fur a nap til yur people git home. Rub their legs an see if they smart nuff to feed ya. The littlnis seem smarter than the biggins.
They gotta dog so one of us has to go smack him just so he remembers.
Wes real proud of ya and hope we kin see ya sometime soon.
Love ya, Cuz
TJ, Oreo, Smokey, Aunt Tiger, and the kids
Sometimes, Cousin TJ’s emails make me blush with the things they do, like drinking out of the toilet. And can you imagine catching your own food, or even wanting to? Yuck. I’ve never even seen a real live mouse. Oh, and I think TJ has me confused with another cousin — there are a lot of them — since I am only his honorary cousin and no one knows who my pa is.
I had mom talk with their human recently about those “yungins” and they promised to get Aunt Tiger her surgery as soon as the time is right.
Sure was glad to hear from them. Hope it doesn’t take them so long to write again.
