My Fair Share Friday

You have no idea what it's like trying to get equal time around here. Between Cory being America's sweetheart, and her momma Ellie being momma to all (ok, including me too), and Ginger being such a gossip and sassy and Jonesie being such an awesome gardener and Nigel being the new kid and Grete being the only woofie...sigh. Me and Madison and Cecilia get the short end of the stick. I for one, got fed up. I stood in front of the computer monitor and demanded my fair share. My nickname should be "Sally" from Peanuts. All I want is what I have coming to me. All I want is my fair share. I demanded the lap time...took over Ellie and Cory's blog time spot. I got the fleece. I got mom's lap. I got the attention.
And...I got the post. Finally.

Way to go Bennette! Sometimes you just have to take charge and get what is rightly yours. I do that all the time. ...not much competition here though, being an only cat and all.

Stay strong!

Good for you! A cat has to do what a cat has to do. Just don't take over my blog, okay? I don't share.

It's the squeaky cat that gets the blog! Good job, Bennette! So good to see you today!

The Creek Cats said...

Great to see you today, Bennette! In homes as big as ours, it's so hard to get equal face time on the blogs. Lately, it's been all about Saylor here!

Ariel said...

Oh and what a darling kitty you are Bennette! I used to have 2 tuxedo cats myself. One of them lived to be 11 yrs old and the other one lived to be 20! I miss them something awful but I have a nice new kitty that is all white now and her name is Kenzie. I got her from an elderly lady that went into to a home when she was 9 years old. We love each other so much now as Kenzie wasn't too sure about me in the beginning! I got a letter from Cory and she was wondering what a convo meant. I didn't know either until I had started a store at Etsy.com My store is http://LindaGJ.Etsy.com It's a lingo they use for contacting me! I would love for yall's whole family would participate, but I think there is only room for 3 photos, so yall will have to send me more than one convo! I think you have to register to get in and then you will have make up a name so you can write to me. It's very easy and it's free! Then we can talk all the time and I will give you my e-mail address if you would prefer sending me pictures that way! I am so happy to get to know yall and will start to follow yall! I will explain more on my blog about convos, ok?
Hope to hear from you all soon!
Linda :)
PS. There's some art work I do that will show you what Peanut my tuxedo kitty that lived to be 29 years old looked like as she was my muse and I keep her alive that way. I know we will all be together again someday! She and her brother Domino are my little guardian angels. It will be nice eye candy for yall to see! I don't want yall to get the wrong idea though about me sending yall there to see the art work I do. I am sending people there, so as not to reveal my e-mail address to bad people. You never know! but I will send yall mine once yall convo me.

Good work. We have a problem getting journal time from Jan. She's the computer hog around here.

It's just not fair. The same goes on here. It's always Dushi this, Paddy that. Ok, they are young and cute and they like to hang out in trees. Not that I never sit in a tree. They are my kids, they have that from me.
