1.16 - Slumber Party

"Ladies and gentlemen, I have called you here for an emergency meeting. As you might have noticed, we are currently being invaded by small humans," Richie meowed. "Lion, I will have you survey the area from the tower. Nelly will observe the kittens' room. Switch shift at sunset. I will be the window lookout and alert you of new intruders."  If I can reach the windowsill , he thought. "Um. Cool PJs," Ruby said to Striker, who was wearing sports-themed pajamas, "you didn't need to bring them though. We said, uh, mom said the boys had to go at 7pm..." "Oh," Striker said. "But Derik is wearing his too." "What? Well fine, you guys sleep in the living room then." Ruby quickly got into her sleepwear herself and then called everyone to the feast her mom had prepared. The good thing about having to feed a horde of children was that they didn't have expensive tastes. Some fatty mac and cheese and a plate of hotdogs

1.14 - Lord Richie and His Peasants

A week had passed since the family moved. The apartment still looked very bare and the severe lack of cat didn't help in making it feel any more homely.  But Kerry would survive it, even though she really loved Richie, that jerk of a cat . Ruby on the other hand was much more affected. She had a special bond with him ever since she was born, or maybe even earlier when Ruby was still in Kerry's womb and Richie would lie on the pregnant belly and purr to the unborn baby.   And so Kerry had been secretly searching pet adoption sites to surprise her daughters. The family was in need of a new cat or two. Two littermates were up for adoption, one boy and one girl, just over a year old.   Kerry was more than happy that her own kids were old enough to use the bathroom by themselves and not in the mood to train any kittens to use the litter box.
