This is a brief ode to Dexter’s stuffed mice.
Ever since he was a wee little kitty, he’s loved these mice with all his little cat-heart.
Dexter used to drown Jimmy in his water bowl and once, I contemplated sewing up his back.
But then I remembered I can’t sew. So I gave him a treat instead.
Next is Leonard:
Who resembles a catfish.
And finally, Edmund, the most special of all.
You see, last week I couldn’t find my favorite t-shirt so I was digging around in Adam’s suitcase, which was naturally still packed from over Christmas.
I didn’t find my t-shirt. But I did find Edmund!
Dexter was very happy to have him back and played non-stop until he passed out in a black furry heap with Jimmy, Leonard and Edmund by his side.
For the life of me though, I still can’t figure out how Edmund got into Adam’s suitcase to begin with.
