Tuxie Twilight Thursday

Yep, it's twilight as I type with one of my nails--
And I PLANNED it that way.  All cuz of my sweet Mommy!
Asked her what her favorite Perry memory was--and Mommy
Purred and laughed and said when she "beat his butt!"
See, when we were really itty bitty kitties and starting to move around
Mommy stayed near and so did Tommy.  We lived in a cluttered apartment
That had an upstairs---I don't really remember--but Mommy says we all got to get
Good goin' up and down stairs-Well, this one one night, I
Guess Mr. Cranky Puss wanted to check out the newest intruders to
HIS house with Tommy (that was us!) and came up the stairs. 
Seems Mommy wasn't really feelin that and got all Big Mama
And started toward Perry. Tommy didn't want to think and
The next thing you know, Perry hi-tailed down the steps with Mommy on his
Heels! Mommy says she laid into him good, and Tommy says she heard
PERRY hollerin' from downstairs and stuff gettin' pushed into stuff...
Then it got quiet, Tommy says. Mommy came up the steps and kept her guard over us.
Tommy says Perry really didn't come too close after that.
Even before he passed away Mommy still kinda watched Perry
Eventho Me and Brother Earl Gray are man cats NOW.
And Mommy does say she and Perry did kinda made a truce, sniffed noses and kinda
Were by each other when we got on Tommy's bed--and when Perry was really sick
Mommy did hang around him. She says Perry liked that.
So all in all, Mommy says this is her favorite photo of her and Perry...
They shared a window, Tommy went outside to snap the photo, ..
And twas twilight....

Aw, it sounds like Mommy really did care for Perry, even though they had kind of a testy releationship. She DID show him who was boss, though!

Awwwww Handsome Noir!!!! What a wonderful memory from your sweet Mommy even if it was for when gorgeous Perry got a severe warning from her! LOL!! Awwwww guess he was just being curious and Mommy was being mighty protective of you all cos you were only tiny!

Me and Charlie absolutely love that pic of your sweet Mommy not being impressed with lovely Perry's fierce yawn!! LOL!! It's so nice to read that sweet Mommy kept Perry company when he was ill. What a lovely mum!!! Take care

We like this photo. It looks like mommy just told Perry a good joke.

Mommy thought Perry thought he was King--how he tried to lay claim to Tommy and all. But since Mommy and Tommy were both girls, Perry kinda gave them a free pass...
