Sharkey Gets Turned Down Again

Posted by Francesca

I don’t know what the deal is with Sharkey.  She’s always trying to make friends with the cats.  I keep telling her that it just won’t happen, but she persists anyway.  Why would anyone want so much rejection?

Hello Princess Peony  - I was hoping we could have a civil conversation.  Do you think that perhaps we could be friends?

I've been thinking and realized that we even share some of the same interests.

For example, we both like to eat and sleep.  And we both like to chase small animals.

Why is it that you seem to ignore me and just flit off when I make an attempt at being friendly?

And if that weren't bad enough, there's your sister Empress Tang.  She's even more evasive than you!  That's it!  I've had it with the both of you!

Don't act so shocked, Tang!  You ARE snobby and it hurts my feelings.

I've tried talking to Bartok and he just stares at me with those big icy blue eyes of his.

And then there's Verdi?  Say, how about a chat?

Silly Sharkey - you'd think she would have learned by now.  Cats are simply aloof and if you want a good friend, find a dog.

  • At least you tried Sharkey. You'd make a good diplomat trying to build bridges with the furballs. Maybe it's best to just hang out with Franny and GK.

    I see you two are busy this week helping MommyMartha set up for a wedding at the farm this week. I like the way you two are surveying the property for where the tent should be. :wink:

  • Sharkey how many times do I need to tell you furballs are for chasing! Listen to Franny give it up already and move on.

    So our house guests left last night they were here for 10 days. I had a 6 year old little girl who just loved and kissed me the entire time. I have to say I was very disappointed that I was not allowed to sleep with her something about my snooring and a little fart here and there. So I just snuggled in between mom and dad :)

    Sophie and I had a birthday and we got fancy dog cookies that looked like a birthday cake. I wasn't too fond of the icing but loved the cookie part. Mom said we're going shopping for my gift but I need to go and try it on. And I sure don't want her making any alterations it's not like I'm living with a Martha Stewart this woman can't even sew on a button!!!

    So F & S who is getting married at the farm? Maybe you two can be the flower girls :)

  • OK Sharkey, first off names that start with Empress and Princess say a lot, and you wonder why they are aloof?...mommie delia can tell you about that, she was born a real Baroness and people thought she was not approachable, well it's a good thing she doesn't use the title anymore(she became a US citizen)

    So Sharkey my dear pup, cat's are just that way, they have an attitude...and that's coming from ME Kitty!

  • Hi Sharkey and Francesca: Gosh! Sharkey, you have the worst luck with kitty cats. Maybe they are just too snippy to get along with anyone but themselves. My grandpa Littleman Cat got along great with me. He showed me the wonders of a good sunbath in the doorway. He also told me, as we looked at the land our home is on, that someday all of it would be mine. When he passed away and went to meet God, all of it did become all mine. But, I sure do miss him and love him.

    Momma and Daddy and going to Greenville so that the Doctor can remove more of his skin cancers. They make sure I get to stay at the Deluxe Boarding Kennel in the "Queen's Chamber." I'll get a bath and get my nails done too. Plus, I get nature walks, regular walks, playtime, snacks, breakfast and dinner and plenty of water and other outside activities. They really spoil me!

    On Wednesday, the radio station where he retired from on Friday will give him his retirement luncheon and then on Thursday, he has to go to the radio station and be interviewed for a newspaper article. I love my daddy and am soooo very proud of him.

    Well Sharkey, keep trying for the friendship of cats. It is time for me to have an early morning nap. Take care. See ya later. Love, Gracyn.

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    Sharkey, how many times do I have to tell you; cats are not for “aloof,” cats are for chasing? I’ll bet those cats are so pampered that they wouldn’t even run if you did chase them. Oh well, GK and Franny will have long conversations with you. Anyway, GK has so much fur that he just might play the part of a cat for you so you will have a “cat” to talk with. On second thought, maybe NOT. My mommy says that I am like a cat often. Every day when daddy has his lunch, he gives me a little treat. When he calls me, I just lay still but my ear gives me away by moving. He then says, “You better come get your treat or I’ll eat it.” I get up slowly and get my treat. Cat’s don’t come when called either you know.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Hello Ladies,
    Sharkey you are just a lady to keep trying to be friends with the cats. Give it up. If they want to be friends they will have to beg. You have Franny and G.K. and Uncle Carlos and Shaun. You don't see Uncle Carlos taking the cats on rides and into the city. They can just hide from everyone and stay where they are. Hope you guys get to be involved in this upcoming wedding. Are you maybe going to be flower girls and the ring bearer? That would be fun. Have a great day. I am waiting for the Zucchini Bread to be baked and hopefully get a bite.

    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • Forget the friendship route Sharkey show them how cool and regal you can be.

    Glad to see you all tweeting.

    Welcome to a new week of doggie adventures.

    "It's a cat's world"...

    Aw, love you Sharkey! :)

  • Hi Girl Friends &G.K., Well Sharkey if a kitty doesn't want to have a dog for a friend then it would be better if you ignored it. It seems like the only way a kitty will get along with a dog is when they grew up together as very young babies. I grew up with a kitty and now I get along with all kitties. Whenever I go for a walk and we meet a kitty, we always talk to each other and I never do anything that might irritate the kitty. Hope all of you have a great day. Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+ P.S. The wedding at Martha's farm is for her nephew Christopher.

  • Sharkey, better watch out, because if you try to make friends by chasing, the two of you will be sworn enemies! My Frenchie and Siamese Cat just don't understand each other. My Frenchie wants to play chase, Siamese wants to cuddle. Different moods you see. :)
