Grinchy Mudpie

Meows from Mudpie!

Today we're taking part in the annual celebration of Dr Seuss' birthday, also known as National Read Across America Day. While it's customary to dress up in the Cat in the Hat's signature red & white striped hat, the Seuss character I most closely identify with is the Grinch! 

Now I know you're saying, "What do you mean, Mudpie? You LOVE Christmas!" And you're absolutely right, I do! 


The reason I feel a kinship with the Grinch is our mutual dislike of...NOISE! I mentioned last week in my interview with cat behaviorist Anita Kelsey that I'm not a huge fan of music, and the living room isn't my favorite place to be when the TV is on either. In fact, if I hear sirens, animal sounds or kids screaming on the TV I'm virtually inconsolable and likely to retreat to the quiet safety of the bedroom. 

What can I say, I'm a peace and quiet loving tortie. (Which is kind of ironic since I have a BIG voice!)

No "grinch" -- not you!
It's not pawsible that could be!

Mudpie's too nice,
She's all sugar, no spice.

You are just purrticular about certain things as all us pussycats are. You have every right to have peace and quiet in your own abode. Hugs for you, you Grinchy Tortie, you.

Mudpie, yoo and my Momma would get along very nicely, since she cannot stand noise either. Especially when Daddy is listening to stuff on his pawphone, and watching teevee, especially pawlitical stuff. Momma gets cranky, and leaves the room. Silence is Golden... and that's why Mom loves to read. Purrs, Dori
