Ellie Mae and Her Momma

In the three years since Bear's death, Ellie Mae has worked hard to live up to Bear's expectation that she continue his mission of saving Kat (if you missed their conversation, you may read it in Ellie Mae gets promoted). The job isn't easy, but Ellie Mae takes her job very seriously. We think Bear would be proud.

EM: Ellie Mae Kat [black, gorgeously floofy lady cat] 
L: Latte [tortie/tabby lady cat aka "Kitten"] 
MK: Momma Kat [Latte and Ellie's human Momma, named Kat] 
The Boy: Momma's fiance, Daddy [or Treat Man] to Latte and Ellie 

EM: I love you, Momma.
MK: I love you, too, Ellie.
EM: I'm your favorite kitty snuggler, right, Momma?
MK: You're my favorite black kitty snuggler.
EM: Wait ... what? That's not the same thing! Latte isn't as good of a snuggler as I am!
MK: Your snuggles are just different.
EM: But mine are better!
MK: Your snuggles are wonderful!
EM: And the best ...

MK: You are the best at snuggling the way you do.
EM: Wait ... what?! So my snuggles aren't better than Latte's?
MK: You let me hold you in my arms ... and stroke you from head to tail ... then you dance and trill ... and do the Ellie-vator butt thing ... there are no snuggles like Ellie snuggles.
EM: So my snuggles ARE better than Latte snuggles!
MK: Why does it matter?
EM: I'm working on my resume.
MK: Why do you need a resume?
EM: Latte said you must submit your resume to have a boyfriend.
MK: Resumes are for jobs.
EM: Isn't being a girlfriend a job?
MK: Not really.
EM: You mean you didn't send the Treat Man your resume before you got together?
MK: Ummm ... no. What else is on your resume?
EM: Happy paws/professional dancer. Floofy tail. Not a mean bone in my body.
L: But you sure know how to end a fight when you've had enough.

EM: Thanks! I'll add that!
L: Not very bright.
EM: That goes under "shiny black furs." Pro-triller. Supermeowdel.
MK: You haven't let me take pictures of you for weeks!
EM: I work on my schedule ... not yours.
MK: Are you going to put that on your resume? That seems relevant to a job.
L: You sound like a diva!
EM: At least I DO work!
L: What are you talking about?! I spend all day being adorbs ... showing off my belly ... training our humans ... killing stuff ... spreading chaos ... doing my THANG ... I'm very busy! What do YOU do?
EM: Snuggle with Momma. Look pretty. Do my little dance.

EM: My jobs are just as important as yours! I save Momma's life every day! Bear told me that was my job before he left!
MK: You do save me a little every day with your sweetness and cuddles.
EM: SEE?!? Without me, there'd be no Momma. And with no Momma, there'd be no snuggles. And no food.
L: Have some self-respect!
EM: My job is REALLY important! Bear said! And he was really smart! He even spoke Spanish!  And he knew all about Canadia! And tasty whole flightless birds. And tanks!
L: Canadia?! Show me Canadia on a map!
EM: And he taught me everything I know about being a Princess!

EM: {looking around} WHAT?!? Boys can be princesses, too! He was given the title Princess Buttercup Black Bear Cat of the Forest! That sounds super official!
MK: Oh, Ellie Mae, you sweet girl.
L: By that, she means you're S-T-U-P-I-D!
EM: Are you speaking Spanish?
L: NO! I'm spelling!
EM: Spelling sounds stupid.
{Momma puts her hands over face}
L: You ....
L: What?! I can't ....
L: So I'm just supposed to pretend ...

L: This is ridiculous!
MK: You only get one sisfur.
L: I don't know that I could handle more than one!
EM: Oh! Can I put that on my resume?! "You can't handle more than one of me."
{Kat gets up}
EM: What?! Where are you going?
MK: I have a headache!
EM Oh! You need Ellie snuggles!
L: Yeah. That's EXACTLY what she needs! As long as you don't open your mouth ...
EM: What?! What's wrong with my mouth? Does my breath smell like tuna again?! It's not my fault! That's the food I like! Wait! Momma! You need Ellie snuggles!
MK: Come on!
EM: I love you, Momma!

MK: I love you, too, Ellie Mae.
L: Barf.

  1. Ellie Mae, Keep this from your sisfur- but you are my sweetest favorite , even in your whole City.

  2. Aww, that is too cute. This boyfriend and resume thing, is it a point based system based on oral and written exams, with a practical thrown in? I mean, there sure should be exams on cleaning, washing up and laundry scrubbing duties. Which moves me quickly on, just in case Mrs h hears, to what pay do they have to give you for the privilege of serving you, Ellie Mae?

    1. He's supposed to pay me to scoop my poop?! Bear never told me that! ~Ellie Mae

  3. Bear would be so very proud of how great you've been at taking care of your Momma, Ellie Mae. 😻

    1. I do my best. And just between you and me ... she's hard work! ~Ellie Mae

  4. Sweet Ellie-Mae, never doubt your snuggles, we know they are totally purrfect!

    1. That's what I thought. You're right. She's just being nice to Latte so she doesn't hurt her feelings. ~Ellie Mae

  5. Oh Ellie-Mae ~ you are doing a wonderful job ~ Bear would be proud ~ awesome photos and dialogue too ~ thanks,

    Wishing you good health, laughter and love in your days,

  6. Ellie Mae you are doing an excellent job of being Mom's snuggler. I know Bear is smiling
    Hugs Cecilia

    1. Did you know that Bear always smiled after he farted? #tmi ~Ellie Mae

  7. Sounds like you are snuggling with finesse, Ellie Mae, no doubts about that! And, Latte excels at being a smartmouth, as so many kitties do! A lot like some of the kitty groups I've lived with!

    1. I DO have a rather complex dance routine. But it always makes Momma smile! ~Ellie Mae

  8. You are all favorites. Thanks for the smiles.

  9. She will do fine. Bear will be proud of Ellie-Mae really. He is looking down from the Bridge and nodding in satisfaction.

    1. I hope so! If not, I'll never hear the end of it! ~Ellie Mae

    1. Momma calls me her velcro cat. Maybe I should put that on my resume? ~Ellie Mae

    1. That's what I thought. You're right. She's just being nice to Latte so she doesn't hurt her feelings. ~Ellie Mae

    1. Yeah. It ended up in spam. I don't get Blogger ... they've started marking MY comments ... on my own blog ... as spam every so often!

  15. Mom had the best laugh at Latte’s final comment and the expression on her face in the first photo is priceless. She looks downright smug. We know where Latte could get some additional sisfurs. Mom could stand a night or two without C.J. Trying to suffocate her. Hugs to all.

  16. AMARULA: No one can replace Bear but even i have to admit EM is doing a pretty good job!

    1. Wow. Really?! Can I put that vote of approval on my resume? ~Ellie Mae
