Twinkie…Our Kitty

Posted by lori . 1 Comment

Greyhounds aren’t the only 4-legged members of our household; but I don’t think I can refer to Twinkie as one of the “kids.”  She’s more of our “grande dame.”

In 1995, during my daughter’s preschool Christmas program, Santa made an appearance.  He presented all the precious children with little bells and told them, “If you make a wish and ring the bell, Santa will make your wish come true.”  There was an audible gasp from all the parents and grandparents in the audience.  Guess what my daughter wished for?  And that’s how Twinkie came to live with us.

When Twinkie was little, she was feisty.  My daughter and her had a love/hate relationship.  You couldn’t get one over on Twinkie, because Twinkie had a memory, and Twinkie was patient.  If you stepped out of line, Twinkie would deal with you,  now or later.  I used to get annoyed because she would always get in front of me and STOP.  I decided that I would teach her a lesson and just walk into her.  Well, I did, and she bit me.  She didn’t say it, but the message was clear, “Hey genius, I’m standing here!”  I didn’t do that again.  Guess Twinkie didn’t get “schooled” that day.

Now, Twinkie mostly sleeps with occasional breaks to eat, visit the litter box and discipline the houndies.  We live with a kinder, gentler Twinkie…or at least an older, sleepier Twinkie.  I still give her, her space.

    Twinkie never fear I too have a human sis and we have agreed to disagree also. Mom says it is hard for two divas to be in one house.
    Hugs Madi your new BFFF
