My name is Mr Stubbs..
........... I belong to no-one!!!
I come when I please...
I'll let you pet me.....
if I'm in the mood.....
I'll let you feed me too....
In the book "Mr Stubbs" written by T.L. McCready
and illustrated by Tasha Tudor, (1956)
their Mr Stubbs has battle scars on his ears.
Our Mr Stubbs has some too!
Mr Stubbs in the book gets himself
built into a woodshed that carpenters
were coverting into a room!
Our Mr Stubbs managed to get himself
locked in our shed for a few hours!
My name is Simon....
I like to Take PEACE....
The Mousiekin Family...
are my Friends....
After the passing of our Beloved Cat
"Sir Markus Kitty", at the ripe old age
of twenty three,
Truly he was "The BEST CAT EVER"!
we decided, after 5 months, it was
time to adopt a new kitty. So we took a ride
to meet some Kitties at the
Shelter and give an older Cat a second chance.
We were compelled by a bonded pair,
and even though we had decided that
choosing another black and white Kitty
would be painful (and were only planning on one) ,
we went ahead and adopted
the two, a gray tiger and a black and white.
They just looked so scared and abandoned.
We were assured that they were
"mostly indoor" cats that stayed close to home.
(My fear was of a "door dasher" for we have Coyotes
around that we need to beware of)!
Well home we came with the new members
of the family and ...
soon we were ready to allow them to check
their new surroundings. Simon (who is black and white)
went immediately under a bed... but Mr Gray tiger whom
we discovered had a stub tail, and quickly dubbed
"Mr Stubbs" (from T.L. McCready and Tasha Tudor fame)
disappeared so quick as a flash!! He was not to be found
until the next day in a cupboard under the sink
with the door closed!! (he opened and closed it himself)
Well no sooner was he found then gone he was again.
The next morning he made his "DOOR DASH" escape
before Husband even knew what flashed before him!!
There was Mr Stubbs flying across the land..
far beyond the Pine trees......
After searching and calling, leaving food and water at the door,
on the third day guess what was left in front of the door stoop?
You may have guessed "a dead MOUSE"!!!
and you would be right!!!
Well, as time would have it he decided he would stay
and everybody now loves the cuddlely Mr Stubbs!!
Hubby-Bear knew he came second to our dear.... so he bought this plaque!!
(Markus a month before he passed)
Markus looked young and
BEAUTIFUL even in his twenties
we miss him sorely
