Jack's News!

Heard from author Celine Rose Mariotti, who is having her first-ever Book Signing on May 21st. (Details Later.) She already has several books published and sent the ms. for the second in her Rev. Castle series this week!  Way to go, Celine.

Arline finally got everyone paid, thank goodness, but she's still not back to normal, if you ask me. 

I got her up for treats at 4 a.m. yesterday and the treat bag was empty! Me and my baby sister, Spunky, were both waiting and our gentle reminders were probably getting a bit loud, cause I heard Roger mutter, "What's going on?" from the bedroom.

Anyway, she finally noticed the treat bag had nothing in it, and got the new one from the cupboard, and tossed some in our dishes, and started right back to bed.

WELL! I looked at Spunky and she looked at me, and we  both stared at our bowls, and gave her our best "Deprived Kitty" looks. But she just didn't get it.  

We could hardly believe it, ourselves! She had filled our Treat dishes with Ordinary KIBBLE! 

She kept looking at us like WE were the stupid ones, for not eating that "Nothing-Like-A-Treat" stuff. Finally, she just  shrugged.

We tried and tried to tell her. And I guess we did get pretty loud, because Roger yelled again, "Will you two pipe down?!" from the bedroom. 

So we gave up and ate it. But, really!

I felt insulted and I know Spunky did, too. (Although she is such a suck-up she hardly ever complains no matter what they do, unless I start it, of course.) 

Later, around 8 a.m., when Roger went to open a new bag of cat food, for our regular breakfast, all he found in the cupboard was the full bag of treats! 

Boy, did he razz her! He's still laughing.

Please let me know how everyone is doing... so I'll have some news for next week.

Just send an e-mail to with 
 "News for Jack" 

in the subject line, and

I'll make sure it shows up right here
for all the world to see!
