Kiffer's tale

Kiffer: I wasn't lost. I had a home and a woman to live with. But there were dogs, big and bad, and cars and streets and I was caught by the big bad black dog and shaken. I have lost 3 of my 9 lives and the woman I lived with thought I would be safer here.
Maurice brought me a mouse today. He is handsome and kind. Not sure about Elmo though. He hisses and spits and bats my head and then follows me. But the sofa is good and the food is ok and outside is very green.
Maybe tomorrow Maurice will bring me another mouse. I tried to eat the last one under Her bed and Maurice said that was not a good idea as She does not like mouse guts under Her bed. Funny woman.
It is raining. I can hear it running down the roof and pitter-pattering on the windows. All cats are sleeping, curled in warm places.

Hi Kiffer! I am glad that you have a safe and happy home now. I do not know why peoples do not like mouse guts in the house.

I hope you like the new home, it is good to be safe.

Give Elmo some time, he will stop hissing at you and maybe then you can learn to walk with the others and play king-of-the-mountain on the sign posts.

Oh Kiffer, what a traumatic time you've had! I'm sure your new home will be a much better place for you. And Elmo's sure to come round eventually.

Pleased to meet you in blogworld, Kiffer. Rusty is rather like Elmo, but he is getting better and only snarls when he is feeling very old and grumpy (he is 17 man-years).
It's good that you are well away from the bad dog.

Oscar in Australia wishes you well in your new home Kiffer. He is not allowed to eat mice under the bed either, but there are not many as he kills any who get in.

Hi Kiffer! I think you are home now. This home seems like a fairy tale land for cats and paintings. I bet it is gonna be really nice. I think it was nice that Maurice brought you a mouse to eat, and of course eating mice under beds, tables and chairs are the best. I wish you and your 6 more lives a happy and loving time in this lovely home.

I hope you are settling in to your new home - the one who paints seems like a very kind human, and your new ginger friends know where to have lots of magical adventures. My sister and I send you our very very best wishes.
