Mio carissimo zia Annie,
(My Dearest Aunt Annie)
Io sono così eccitato per essere iscritto in italiano, che le mie zampe sono tremore. (translation: I am so excited to be writing to you in Italian, that my paws are trembling.)
That’s enough Italian for the moment. I got bored with the French but my paws trembled for another language so I thought I’d give the Italian a try. Impressive is it not!
No successful hunts in the recent past to report. I’ve tried my darndest but had absolutely no success. So I’m just using the hunt as a means of exercise. Doesn’t hurt a gal to keep her figure, right! 😉 I do, however, wish to let Dog know that I answered his last message about the ants. I told him that yes, ants are spicy, but I’m like mum, I don’t really enjoy spicy foods so I just kill the ants when I find them. Thank heavens for mum though, as she found the biggest ant she’d ever seen. She said that it was almost a half an inch long. As she killed it before telling me, I only got to see a squashed ant with his head missing. Apparently, she really bashed it with her slipper. Enough of that for now. (ick)
I have sad news to report. My new toy, the one we waited so long for, has died. I was playing with it the other night and out of the blue, the butterfly fell off of the wire. Mum had turned it on for me and I was enjoying playing with it but as she had thought, it wasn’t to be. It now lives in the garbage. The butterfly, however, still has not got that far as mum can’t find it. (giggle) It’s laying on the carpet but is resting on a flower and the colors blend very well and that makes it hard for mum to see. I’m just waiting on how long it will take her to find and throw out. Oh well, Che la vita. (That’s life)
I overheard mum talking to you on the phone the other day and she was saying that she was a little miffed with me as I had awakened her early one morning. So I thought I’d put my own two cents in. That cat was, as mum saw, just sitting there when she got to the window. However, before that, he had been saying all kinds of nasty things to me. I was very upset and that’s what all the noise was about. it was not an altercation as there was no way that I could get my claws into his rotten face. Oh well, I’m just glad that mum managed to make him go away. He hasn’t been back since. I keep looking though, and if he does come back, there will be a silent altercation. That way I won’t wake her up.
I guess that’s about all that I have to report at this time. All my best to you and my cousin Jason. I’ll write again, as soon as I have anything of interest to relate to you.
Tutto il mio amore, (All my love)
