Dear Aunt Monette,
Mom tells me that you are very anxious to see photos of me and to hear all about me... so, hear goes.
First of all I'm not real thrilled with these photos, I think mom is going to have to practice... or get a profesional ... I am much more beautiful than these pictures, but, oh well, guess we'll have to use them for now. Mom promises to send more ( and better ones) soon.
As you can see, I live in a most beautiful place. Right in the middle of the Roosevelt National Forest... Away from the big city noise, busy streets and best of all, the dog catcher!!!
I spend most of my days at home with mom and playing outside. I love to play with sticks and carry them all over the yard. Lately I have been chasing and catching the mice and shrews around the yard. so they don't come in the house and eat all our food!!! I don't eat them tho, mom is very infatic about that, she says they could make me sick... don't want that!!! I explore all the woods and fields around our house, but I never go too far away so that mom can't find me or I can't keep an eye on home.....I'm becoming a fine "watch puppy". Actually, if I can "see it then it belongs to me".... Mom takes me with her where ever she goes, so the trunk is mine too...I love going for rides, especially when we go to visit my friends.
Some of my favorite times at home are mornings when we are all here I get to jump on the bed with mom and dad, sometimes we just all snuggle together, sometimes I bring one of my toys to bed and dad plays with it with me while mom tries to sleep?????? I love to wake mom and dad up.. and lick their faces, they get so excited when I do that????
Dad roughhouses with me a lot more than mom does, but that's because he's bigger and stronger. Mom's into talking and playing more quietly more "lady like." Both mom and dad insist that I learn my manners. That's really mom's job to teach them to me... and how to behave like a "proper young lady". I'm very smart and fast learning.
Sometimes mom's work takes her away from home for many weeks (she works for the red cross, you know, you know). Dad and I don't much like that, cause we both miss her very much and I have to stay home while dad is at work, but we understand that her work is very important for people who have been in a disaster, many times she helps lost or abandoned pets, and we are proud of her. Well, enough about mom being gone...
Here at home I have a big sister, her name is "Nelle Juan." She is a short squat "Eskimo Cat" (not to be confused with Fat!!) And was born in Bethel, Alaska. I love to play with her, share my toys (especially the squeaky ones) and snuggle with her. I know she loves me... sometimes she even lets me sleep next to her!!!!!!!! Our big brother "Shadow Kitty" went away on Thanksgiving week-end. I was sad and didn't understand why he went away, but mom told me that it was "his time" to cross the "Rainbow Bridge" and that we would all see him again,...... when it was our turn.
Guess I should close now, it's getting pretty late and I'm kind of tired... anyway, I have to warm up the bed!!!
I hope to see you again someday, mom said maybe in October. That would be nice. Please tell my "doggie" mom and dad that I am very well and happy. I think about them sometimes remember how nice it was to cuddle with mom and my other brothers and sisters. Please give them a kiss from me. Thank you
Mom and Dad send very best regards to you. I send licks and loves.
Bye for now,
