"peter kitten," with apologies to beatrix potter

by Stacy

Once upon a time there were two little Kittens, and their names were– Ninja Lou and Artemis Wetherby Jones.

They lived with their Mother in an apartment, underneath the shade of a very big gum-tree.

“Now, my dears,” said their mother one morning, “you may go into the bedroom or under the table, but don’t go into Mr. McGregor’s garden: your Father had an accident there; he was put in a pie by Mrs. McGregor.”

“Now run along, and don’t get into mischief. I am going out.” Then Mother took a basket and her umbrella, and went down the path to the laundry room. She washed a load of light clothes and two loads of darks.

One of the kittens, who was sometimes a good little kitten, went to the bedroom to take a nap;

But the other kitten, who was very naughty, ran straight away to Mr. McGregor’s garden, and hopped on the table!

First she ate some arugula; and then some tomato sprouts;

And then, feeling rather sick, she went to look for some parsley.

But round the end of the dining room table, whom should she meet but Mr. McGregor!

Mr. McGregor was on the couch watching Hulu, but he jumped up and ran after the kitten, waving a spray bottle and calling out, “Stop naughty cat.”


Which kitten was napping, and which was caught with her nose in the arugula sprouts?

I had some seeds planted in a long rectangular planter a few years ago, and my cat saw a rectangular box full of dirt and, well, those seeds didn’t lack for nitrogen at least.

Ha! I have avoided that. I just wish it was not considered a kitty snack bar. Sigh.

I, too, vote Ninja. Naughty, naughty Ninja.
