Befurr my sister was born, my purrents took a vow between each other to nevfurr speak “baby” to her. They’ve done a supurrb job sticking to this promise – I on the other hand, am not exempt from this rule. My mother calls this torturous language her “cat-mom” voice.
Evfurr since I was a kitten, my mother has ALWAYS spoken to me in this “cat-mom” voice.
[Insert eye roll!]
The volume level of this voice of course belongs in another stratosphere of decibels – so much so that my ears flare back when she talks to me.
Mom, I’m not deaf – yet.
And another thing – she pluralizes EVFURRYTHING! Fur example:
Mom: “OTIS JOE, ARE YOU SADS? HOW COMES HANDSOME PANTS? ARE YOU COLDS? DO YOU NEED TURKERS?”
So many things wrong with this confurrsation.
1) I am just saying hi.
2) Why would I be sad? I’ve been catnapping all day.
3) I don’t wear pants.
4) Yes, actually I’m cold because the A/C has been running full blast.
5) It’s called turkey mom. [Insert eye roll, again!]. But yes, I would like some.
I wonder if she realizes I’m not a kitten any more – I’m working on 11 years old and this is so not cool!
Does anyone else have a mom like this? Asking fur a furriend!
