Oh kitties…I’m in trouble now. Y’see, the mom is mad at me because I ate her African Violet plant. She’s had this plant for a couple of years and it’s never bloomed except when she first got it. Until now…
Here’s what it looked like a week ago. (Try to ignore the cat furs on the leaves.) See those delectibly, yummy purple flowers?? What cat worth his weight in catnip could resist them?!?
And this is what looks like now. Kitties…I tell you! Those flowers were begging me to bite them!!
Here’s a closer look. Now don’t suggest that I blame it on one of the other cats around here…or even the infamous “NOTME.” The mom caught me red-pawed on this one. And y’know what made her madder?? I didn’t eat the flowers…I just bit them off and spit them out! She said if I was gonna ruin the flowers, I coulda at least had the decency to eat them.
I dunno, kitties…I can only hope that the plant will bloom some more. But I can’t guarantee that if if does, I won’t put the bitey on it again! The mom…she’ll just hafta get over it…heheheh!!
