Un-Easy Sunday

Whew! Mom went to a cat show yesterday and she almost brought home a little brother for me. I reminded her that I have been an only kitty for over 13 years and I don't want a sibling around. Mom said there were two little male kittens that she wanted to bring home and said if I weren't an older kitty, she would have brought him home. She did get the breeders' cards for future contact, when needed.


Mom, I want to be an only kitty if you don't mind!


*****************************************************************************
This was one of the judging rings of the baby Persians.
Mom Paula - Aren't they cute?
Praline - Only from afar, Mom!

This is a sibling of one of the kittens that Mom was tempted to bring home. This breeder actually lives in SC, so mom definitely kept her card. The other kitten was a red tabby Persian and that breeder lives in Florida.



Mom Paula: I was so tempted to get one of the kittens today. However, I am concerned about the stress it may cause to Sweet Praline at her age and she does tend to get stressed when things change around her. At least, I made some contacts with some wonderful kitty people today. I hope Praline is around for a lot longer and she will get all of my love and attention.

Kittens are cute but very stressful!

Sweet Praline, the best kitties are we, the adults!
Kittens are always cute, but the real character is in us.

Oh look at those pretty little babies! Can you hear our mum's SQUEEEEEEEEEEs from over there?

You had a narrow escape, Sweet Praline. I think the kittens are cute, but you deserve to stay an only cat. I am glad you are feeling better. I hope you had a very Happy Birthday, Praline's Mom!

Praline, we think your mom was wise not to bring home a kitten! She should have brought TWO! ; ) Then they can play together and you can watch them. That could be kind of fun, don't you think? : )

Oh sweet praline I agree it would have been too much stress for you. They were kinda cute though. I remember when mum got me, Dolly cat was very old and didn't like me at all. She hissed and spat at me all the time. But given time we became good pals and I was very sad when she went to the bridge.

I know what you mean Praline. I was an only kitty for 12 years. Mom got Georgia & Tillie when their owner went
to the Bridge. I can put up with them,but Mom lets me have my own room and I like that :)
Those kitties are very cute,but you are beautiful!!!! Mom thinks it would be hard to not bring one home!!Sheesh!

We're glad your Mom decided to keep you as an only cat. Our Mom might know the breeder in Florida since she does shows here. In fact, there is a nice lady who breeds persians that lives pretty close to us.

It's very dangerous at those cat shows when there are kittens for sale. We are getting worried when Mom goes to a cat show on the 21st she'll be tempted. We keep telling her she needs to save her green papers for when she loses her job. We don't want our food/treat/toy fund compromised.

Sometimes it's good to be the only child!

Cory said...

Oh Praline, you might not realize what you are missing...a little bit of stress maybe, but then you'd get to mold this little furball in your image.

Eric and Flynn said...

They are cute Praline, but they are not a patch on you.

Patty Skypants said...

Why would ur mom need another kitteh?? U iz PURRFECT! xxoo Bhu

Mom Paula, your decision was wise. It would be very stressful for Sweet P and there is no way another kitteh could live up to the KEWTNESS of Sweet P! She is most darling and precious! xxoo Patty

Grrreta said...

Yup, little brothers can be very stressful. Your mommy can look at kittens all she wants, but she will never find any kitty cuter than you, Praline.

Sweet Praline....we understand that you want to be an only kitten after being one for so long!!!

Your mommy is very smart!!!

GOMA+SACHIE said...

Tristan and Crikey said...

Stand your ground, Sweet Praline! You don't need any stress in your golden years!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

I adore other cats and I do wish the Woman would get rid of the male and replace him with another cat... sigh

How pretty Sweet Praline is! I bet if you brought home a little boy-she'd make sure they would know who owned that house. Sweet Praline might like the young blood flowing their the house. Beautiful, beautiful LadyCat!

awww! a cat show sounds sweet.
hang in there sweet P. yer maw always loves you firstmost.

Sunny's Mommy said...

That would be too much stress for you. Really, why should you ever have to share her attention with some other cat? That would not be right. I'm glad your Mom came to her senses.

Praline,
My advice, hold out being an only cat as long as you can. Getting a little sibling in the house is hard work. I constantly have Dumplin' jumping on my back and he is too crazy!

Praline - We can understand why you don't want things to change after so long as an only kitty. However, we do enjoy having other cats in the household. There's always somebody else to blame things on!! No matter what happens around here, Crazy Lady seems to always shout out Trixie's name first!!! LOL

Good work Praline! If you are careless your mom will bring to your domains a bothersome "brother" like Zar... You must not allow it!!
