After the Concert 22

Filed under: Kritter stories — unwriter1 @ 11:21 am

“Mandy, are you ok?”

“Yes. I’m just a bit overwhelmed and a lot confused.”

“Me too, really.”

“All we do is walk through the woods. Why is that so special?”

“Let’s go ask Koko, she knows everything.”

It was a good idea, but leaving the concert area took a long time. Most of the forest kritters that had not yet met the ‘wild bunch’, waited in line to introduce themselves to Amanda and Alex. The lineup included animals normally afraid of cats that wanted to meet them. The birds flew down to offer greetings. It was very late when they arrived at Koko’s. She knew they were coming so she waited up.

“You two look exhausted.”

“Yes. Mandy barely made it here. One of the fawns gave us a ride.”

“Yes, we appreciated it. I have a (yawn), question.”

“Amanda, questions can wait until morning. I think it’s time for two exhausted kitties to get some rest. Alex, would you help Amanda to your sleeping area?”

“Yes Ma’am.”

It was almost afternoon when Amanda finally got up. Alex was already awake but he knew how tired she was so he let her sleep. Koko told her charges not to bother her.

“(Yawn) Did I get up too early?”

“No, why do you say that?”

“Because all I see are you and Alex.”

“Ah. The kids are outside playing and gathering food for lunch.”

“Lunch? Wow, I did sleep late.”

“You were tired.”

The kids came back with enough food to feed an army. Everybody was trying at once to talk to the forest celebrities. Amanda excused herself and went into another room. When Koko and Alex found her, she was crying.

“What’s the matter Amanda?”

“I’m so confused Koko. We’re just kitties. I don’t understand what all the fuss is about.”

“You have actually answered your own question. You two are not just kitties. You are both very special kitties. Unlike most cats, neither of you chase squirrels, birds, butterfly’s or any other forest kritter. You make friends with all you meet.”

“That’s what Mama taught me and I taught Alex. It is better to have friends than enemies. I have learned a lot by meeting and talking with the other animals.”

“As have they from you. You have a very wise mama.”

“Thank you.”

“Alex, you are also very special and wise for listening to Amanda.”

“I agree and thank you.”

“I may call you the wild bunch but the only thing wild is how the other kritters feel about you.”

I guess kitties can blush. Let’s leave them alone to spend some personal time with Koko and her charges. We’ll catch up to them on their next adventure.



  1. A lot of human beings could learn a great deal from Amanda about good and decent values. Nice segment, Sir Twain.

  4. The DH and I punished ourselves by going over to the Buddy Foundation today, where one of our friends is a volunteer. We’re both allergic to cats, but one cute kitten kept putting her paw up to the window. We both fell in love with it and would have loved to bring it home with us, but that would never work out.

    We saw a dog named Charlie there also, which kept wagging its tail at us, so we had to pet it.

    After talking with our friend, we put in a donation and got out of there before we both bawled. I wish we could have taken every one of the animals home with us.
