Tuxie Toozday: Mom likes ME best!
Last month when Mom was away (... sniff ...) from us on her vacation, she shopped at a store called MudBay. She bought lots of nifty stuff including some Yeowwww! Catnip sardines called "Stinkies" an' a ginormous 'nip rainbow that she puts as a tiara on Sparky Fuzzypants' melon (!) ... But the furry best-est thing that she bought was a planter. Yep. A planter is the furry best-est present. Why? Well, 'cuz it is a planter for cat grasses. The planter has its own dirt an' four different little squares for the different kind of seeds. It cost $9.99 at MudBay, but you can get one for about $12.99 at Drs. Foster and Smith.
Mom didn't want to plant it in the house 'cuz Charmee snoopervises EFURRYTHING an' the seeds wouldn't have a fair shake to grow into anything edible. She thought an' she thought 'bout places where she could stow the planter so that the seeds would become grasses for us to eat. Then, it came to her .... The PURRFECT place to take the seeds where they'd have access to light an' plenty of CO2 (carbon dioxide) to grow big an' green: SCHOOL.
The seeds were planted ten days ago an' they were kinda huge just after a weekend in the classroom. Today, she cut the blades of rye, oat, wheat, an' barley an' packed them into a zipper bag to bring home to ME!
Mom sprinkled those blades on the floor an' I ate 'em up just as if I were a vacuum cleaner! I LOVE grasses an' I love the taste of "green"! There weren't many blades left for the Feline Americans, but that's okay 'cuz I got mine!
