Mistress called me Grumpy Knickers! Dear Friends, I hope you are all well and being a good companion to your owners during lockdown. It’s a worrying time for them and we pets have our duty to do by being their best friends and confidants. Mistress whispers many secrets into my ear (which tickles by the way) and shares her feelings about wanting to hug her friends and share time with them. She says it saves talking out loud to herself all the time and then worrying about her sanity. I’m a good listener even though I can only reply with a lick or share my ball with her. Little Mistress seems to be doing OK though. Not being able to go out or meet her friends instead she has late evening video calls with them, sharing a drink or two and a chat. She even dresses up for a night ‘in’ and looks stunning and as if ready to go out to the night club she used to frequent. But Mistress doesn’t like this way of communicating and said it would take too long to make herself look reasonable and the only way she might succumb is to keep her mask on during the call so she doesn’t have to keep applying lipstick or indeed make-up. By 9pm she is worn out from a hard day in the office anyway and would rather watch a good film dressed in her pyjamas! We all get a little irritated in our house spending 24/7 with one another but generally think we are doing ok. So it was a bit of a surprise that Mistress called me ‘Grumpy Knickers’ the other day because I complained she was sitting on my space on the settee ( this is an area defined by my smelly throw) and couldn’t understand that after half an hour of being cleaned of the wet mud attached to my fur after a muddy walk, why I laid down purposefully so she couldn’t get to my under carriage! I mean how would she like it if I took soap suds and a towel to her following our daily exercise-Humph! As most of you know, I much prefer to be called ‘ Frilly

L

Knickers’ or Troublesome Treacle’ so Mistress if you are reading this please no more ‘Grumpy Knickers’ or I may call you, just as a joke you understand, Big Knickers ☺ We have fingers crossed that we may get some ‘proper’ snow soon as all we have seen so far is just sleet and slush. That sounds selfish of us but it would make lockdown a bit more interesting and I can the three of us making snow angels ! Until next month
