My name is Fifine and I am in charge. Mama got me first and I am the boss. Everything was fine with just the two of us, but Mama decided I needed a companion when she had to go to work without me (even though she always tried to take me with her) so she got Daphne Guinness.
Daphne knew immediately that she would have to work to win me over, and I have to admit she worked very hard and diligently towards that goal. I kept asking Mama when she was going back to her house, but she never did. All in all, she has become a good little sister, although I do have to tell her what to do most of the time. Many years later, after several moves and a few cats subtracted and added into the mix (more on that in a future blog posting), Mama decided it was time to stop working in all those far away places and start having puppies. That's when Ebenezer came along. Life is very different having a boy in the house. I mean, there are and have been boy cats living with us, but a canine boy who is FULL boy? Oy!
Whereas Daphne was very compliant from the the beginning, Ebenezer is oblivious to all forms of correction or scolding. He lives in his own world and he is happy to be there. Very annoying. When we go for a walk with Mama, he is all over the place and I can see it is quite challenging for Mama. She is always correcting him and I am always there to back her up!
Now, there are rumblings that Ebenezer is going to get a girlfriend/bride/bitch, and if I understand life correctly, that should mean they will go live in their own house, right? Mama is spending a lot of time out at Robbins' Nest Cotons, where they have 3 dogs who just had a litter each (!) and they have 21 puppies. Mama comes home smelling just awful and full of confusing odors after she goes out there. She laughs and says "oh, I have lipstick on my collar!" but I'll tell you, it's not very funny. She also says she is learning how to be a breeder, but I think she is perfectly fine the way she is and doesn't need to learn anything else and should just stay at home with me. If she brings another puppy here to live with us, I just don't know what I will do.
Anyway, I look forward to telling you some of my stories and about the adventures I go on with Mama. We have done quite a bit of fun traveling together.
See you soon!
