My new best friend

This week, Sadje has provided us with a cute picture of a kitten.

For the visually challenged reader, the image shows a black and white kitten playing with a green flower-bearing shoot growing in between the paving stones.

It’s OK, Mom’s not looking, she’s too busy. Doing what I don’t know, but she said I had to keep quiet, else I’d frighten them away. Don’t know who ‘them’ are though.
You are so pretty. Thank you for popping up to say hello.
I don’t have any siblings to play with as they’ve all been given away, so it’s just me and Mom, and as I said, she’s busy.
I don’t have many friends yet, in fact I don’t have any so you’re the first! Will you be my best friend?
You don’t say much do you. Is that because you’ve been told to be quiet too? You seem so lonely over here all by yourself, so maybe we can be bestest friends.
I’ll look after you I promise. I’ll share my food and bring you water to drink, and we can lie here together in the sun.
You will? Wow!
Let’s shake on it then.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
