Star, fresh from her bath, went to her snuggle buddy for solice. Spitty had just been given a Finnish fiefdom from a Finnish kitty. Star had this to say: Spitty! Congratulations! What a wonderful thing for Punapippuri to give you! Can I visit it with you? Soon... You'll understand my request when you see what humiliation has befallen me recently.. *sigh* I need a cuddle and a scritch..
To which Spitty answered: Um, Star? You know, darling, I loves you furry much, and you know how much I want to cuddle and calm you when you has hadded a horbibble experience like you had today.
Yeah, well, you know what? There is an exception to all that. And do you know what it is? Yes, that's right! You got it i-on your first try: F-l-e-a-s.
I'm sorry, my sweet girl, but--nuh-uh, no way, no how is your cuddle-partner coming over there to comfort you. You is on your own, darling. Your mommy and daddy will snorgle you. We'll see after a few days if you have a certificate of Flea-freedom after your baff.
I'm purring and blowing kissies from the safety of my furry own house tonight! Love you! XOXOXOXOXO
Not exactly happy with this answer, a miffed Star replied: Wow.. I guess you said it all, Spit-man... I mean, I stuck by your side when all the females were ready to hiss your face off. I stood by your side when you were... you know.. But I have one little bout with f-l-e-a-s and you won't stand by me? I'll be sure to send you a notorized copy of my flea-free certificate........ eventually..
Quickly the Spit-meister came back with: Okay. I get it. The Human says I am being a bad boyfriend. I oughta just suck it up and risk being infested by those infernal little itch-causing parasites. Yes, darling, I apologize. Just give me a few minutes to find my Hazmat suit, and I'll be right there. When you're right, you're right. XOXOXO
Star, cheritable as always with her furry friend replied: Wow Spitty! I am surprised that you changed your mind! Not that I don't agree with your mom and all, but a begrudging boyfriend isnt exactly what I was hoping for. However, while you're looking for your hazmat suit, my mom checked me over very carefully and said she sees nothing alive in my furs. If that helps.. Purr XOXO
Before long, Spitty requested that we check our email, and we found something that made me laugh so loud that it woke Greg who thought I was choking to death or something because he flew out of his chair shouting "Are you ok!? Are you ok?! What is it?!" I couldn't speak, I had to show him what just showed up at Star's door...
Star was surprised, and obviously not ready for visitors!
Oh my Ceiling Cat! What are you wearing?
I think Spitty was wondering what on earth Star was wearing, but before anyone could speak.. Leo caught sight of the visitor!
RUN!!! It's the boogidy man!!!!
After Leo departed the room, not to be seen again until the next day, Star allowed Spitty to explain himself... Seems he was still afraid of the dreaded f-l-e-a-s.. Sighing, Star told him she understood as she hated the little blood sucking monsters herself.. But she was not going to snuggle a yellow plastic suit, so he could stay and share some of her favorite chicken treats, but that was all. And he was lucky, as she never EVER shares those treats with anyone!
As Spitty jumped into his transport tunnel to head home, Star hid her smirk and waved goodbye, knowing he'd regret not being able to hold her paw once he read what she had slipped into his pocket...
Next time, she thought, he wouldn't show up wearing a large yellow anti-snuggle suit.
Speaking of regrets! hee hee! You wouldn't want to regret missing out on the FUN FUN FUNdraiser, would you? A chance to help kitties and get your kitties some great toys filled with some great nip!
