Monday Funny with Bear and Joey

(Although posted on Tuesday, this story happened on Monday.  Purrz, Katie Kat) 

Mom... mama MAMA Mom Mooommm!
Katie Kat:  Yes Lil Bear.  I'm right here.
Bear: Uncle Mike told Lil Joe a funny song and Lil Joe just told me! Can we sing it fur you?

Katie Kat:
Sure. Why not. What's the song about?
Lil Joe:
Ummm Kangaroos. Uncle Mike said that kangaroos are big rats with giant tails and they work as boxers in Australia.
Katie Kat: 
Sounds like Uncle Mike was feeding you a tale, actually.

Lil Bear:
Mama MOM Moomm Mama MOM!  I want to sing the song!
Katie Kat: 
Go ahead... Calm down. I'm right here. I'm not going away.

Lil Bear: 
Are you sure!?!?  I can't be alone! Don't ever leave me. You're my MOMMMM! My Mommy Mama Mommy Mom!

Katie Kat: 
I know baby. Three of your littermates only lived a short while. Your brother found a home. Your sisters found another home and your kitty mom went over the Rainbow Bridge.  But I will always be there for you, Sweetie. No matter what.

Lil Bear: 
Oh goods... Den We sing our song fur you! What did the kangaroo lady sing when her became a new mommy, Mom?!  What did she sing, Mommy Mama Mommy?!? What did she sing?!? Whaat?!? Do ya know? Do ya know?
Katie Kat:
I don't know, sweetheart. What did she sing? 
(Katie thinks to herself... hope my poor kid calms down after his little boy surgery.)

Bear and Joe start Singing

"Ize gots the Joey, Joey, Joey down in my pouch
Down in my Pouch.  Down in my pouch.
Ize got the Joey Joey JOEY Joey down in my pouch
Down in my pouch to GROWWW!!!" 

(to the tune of I've Got The Joy Down in My Heart) 

Lil Bear: What's a pouch?
Why did you name me after a baby kangaroo? 

Katie Kat:  Well a pouch is a pocket that a kangaroo has to keep her baby safe and warm until he or she is old enough to hop out. 

And Joey, I actually named you for Lil Joe or Joey, because you have a white J on your back and your purrsonality reminded me of a favorite TV character on a show called Bonanza...  Then your little J started looking like a check mark, kind of like the Nike logo on my tennis shoes... so you became the super hero Nike Cat for a while.  Looks like your J is changing shape though. Your long white hairline seems to be disappearing. Maybe you were only meant to be Nike Kitten. .

Joey:  Maybe so. Maybe so.  I will think about that and get back to you.  Did you like the song?

Katie Kat: Yes, Joey. Tell Uncle Mike that was furry funny.

Lil Bear:  Mom, will you keep me safe and warm too, like a Joey am with hims Mommy kangaroo?

Katie Kat: I will try sweetie, but I don't have a pouch.  Will a blankie do?

Lil Bear: Okay.  I Love you, Mommy Mama Mommy Mom.  (Lil Bear purrz and purrz in Katie Kat's lap, all wrapped up in hims warm blankie.)
Katie Kat: I love you, Lil Bear. 

Katie Kat turns to Lil Joe:  I love you too, Joey.
Joey:  Love you, Miss Mom Lady.  Thank you so much for saving me as a small kitten when my eyes were so infected that I would have lost my sight.  I knew you were there to help me. I couldn't see you, but your voice sounded furry kind. You do know that I am not destined to stay with you, though, don't you?
Katie Kat: Yes, and when you go, I will miss you very much.
Joey: I will miss you, too.  You will always be my hero. I will miss Uncle Mike and his big shoulders.  Howsumever, I must leave you eventually and carry out my mission, for I have cases to solve and deducting to do like Sherlock Holmes. You know, hero stuff. 
Katie Kat:  Yes you do. dear Nike Cat.  Yes you do.

    1. Bear used to snuggle in a blankie more often when he was littler. Now he mostly wiggles out of them. Purrz, Katie Kat.
