Putting The Schmoop in Schmoopy

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie.  Most of you are aware of my rather energetic, playful, crazed River Otter side.  That's a big side of me.  But there's another part of me you might not be aware of.  Since my mom posted about it to FaceBook the other day, I thought I'd come clean here.  It's my schmoopy side.

We all have one, and the more I do that "growing up" thing, the more I'm revealing mine.  Lately, I like to show my schmoopiness on our walks.  We'll just be going along like normal ...

"Isn't it a great day, Mags?"
"It's AWESOME, Cam!"

... and then I pause. I walk over to Mom, gently put my paws on her chest ...

"Hey, Mom?"

... look her in the eyes ...

"Lean in closer; I want to tell you something."

... and then I give her a gentle kiss.

"I love you, Mom!"

Yeah.  Just like that.  It's important to let your bipeds know how you feel.  Let them see your schmoopy side!

Of course, I often jump Cam after that, to try to get her to play with me ... but not always!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher


  1. Maggie OMCs this is absolutely the sweetest post. I for sure understand how impawtant moms are and how we must (in spite of my diva cat-i-tude) let her know I love her. Felines do this by gazing into the peeps eyes and slowly blinking at them. Our peeps will respond with a slow blink back...it can go on furever. But usually my diva side wins and I quit! MOL
