After brief consideration was given to “FartDog,” Kitty Cat has decided that her new name is Poo Poo.

This should not be confused with this, this or him.

I have discovered that when Poo Poo is yelling at me, I can put my nose against her cheek, gently poke her repeatedly in the shoulder with my index finger and say, “Hey, buddy. Hey, buddy. Hey, buddy. Hey, buddy. Hey, buddy. Hey, buddy. Hey, buddy. Hey, buddy. Hey, buddy. Hey, buddy. Hey, buddy. Hey, buddy. Hey, buddy. Hey, buddy. Hey, buddy.” and she will eventually laugh and like me again.

Until the next time I screw up.

Since Poo Poo is getting older, she is less interested in sitting on the couch and cuddling with Uncle Pete. (Pooooooooooooooooop.) However, Uncle Pete found a way to work around that. I invented…

The Cuddle Walk.

It involves going for a walk around outside, while in a nice cuddle. She puts her head on my shoulder and hugs me right up. For it to be an official cuddle walk (patent pending) you have to sing The Cuddle Walk Song.

The song usually starts out with the general version:

We’re going on a cuddle walk
a cuddle walk
a cuddle walk.
We’re going on a cuddle walk
and we’re gonna have some fun.

But, usually gets more specific to reflect what is going on:

We’re going on a cuddle walk
a cuddle walk
a cuddle walk.
We’re going on a cuddle walk
Annnd I think I just stepped in some shit.

Poo Poo enjoys the specific versions the best.

    My niece doesn’t sit still long enough to cuddle. But she does still like to be carried, so you may have something with this Cuddle Walking!

    I got in trouble and was put on timeout for 57 hours (!) in the dark, with no toys. My mom finally came and rescued me and asked my niece, “Why is JenBun on timeout?”

    “She said shit.”

    I totally didn’t!

    no need to wonder where Poo Poo aka Kitty Cat aka the ACN gets her devious ability to cleverly manipulate her relatives…

    Hi Peter-
    This is off-topic and you don’t know me, but do you know what’s going on with IndieBloggers and/or JurgenNation?

    Thanks!

    Poo poo?

    Um. Did you lie to her and tell her that means something other than “fecal matter”? Not nice. No wonder she wants to go back to the Unc store!
