Happily Never After

It had been the Sneaky-Peeky Ceramic Lion’s lifelong wish to stop the Noisy Plastic Horses and their constant clippity-cloppiting over the bridge.

Finally, the Sneaky-Peeky Ceramic Lion remembered the old Kitten in a Pink Bucket ploy! It was his last hope to lure those noisy horses down into his devious trap!

Too late the Sneaky-Peeky Ceramic Lion realised his one terrible miscalculation! As the horses escaped the villain’s clutches, it was suddenly obvious that horses prefer oats in a pink bucket!

The Kitten in a Pink Bucket was not going to sit around waiting to be rescued. So she took the pink bucket and went home!

Anyway, she had been pretending all along just so she could get a pink bucket.

Proving once again, kittens are smarter than ceramic lions and plastic horses, Van M.

    This is the best story I have ever read, and the illustrations are awesome as well.

  2. I think it’s a great story too, but I seem to be missing something – is there a ceramic lion that I’m not seeing?

  3. Ali-Baba says:

    I missed it too! :-) In the first pic he’s peeking around the right side of the bucket.

  4. skippymom says:

    In the second picture you can see one of his legs.

    Wait, is that a walrus I hear, crying for his bukkit?

    fyi for super long URLs, you’ll have better success using an URL shortener like tinyurl.com or something

  8. Fird Birfle says:

    I really like the Magic Glowing Orbs next to the Special Crystals in the last picture.

  12. Oh how convenient, kitten-in-a-bucket. Perfect for take-out.

  13. Fird Birfle says:

    Don’t do it!!! You’ll be hungry again, two hours later!!.

    But that’s the nice thing about prosh kittayns–you can nom and nom and never run out! ;-) And *boop!* to that smudge of a nose!

  15. Well gee. That’s it. I’m giving up planting flowers, and am going to just start planting kittens. Hopefully I’ll get a large bloom of them!

    I have seen many levels of cuteness in my life – but this little kitten goes way off of the “cute-o-meter”. I need medical attention – I saw that kitten and my heart turned to butter-sauce!

  17. victoreia says:

    Why can’t I grow kittens in buckets? All I ever get are weeds!

    P.S. Let me just *boop* that little smudge-nose!

    We have a couple of blueberry plants growing in buckets. Last week, mushrooms popped up in one of them. 8O

    “One of these things is not like the others…”

  20. I think my favorite pic is the last one. The kittayn’s expresh says it all.

  21. I just want to gently take that sweet little kitty out of that small pink bucket and gently cuddle him/her :D

  22. JenDeyan says:

  27. sunnylessmum says:

    Once again C.O., your delivery of cute has saved me from slaying the eveel bosses in my office!! Oh sweet little kitty, how I would love to gently snorgle your softness. Le sigh.

  28. Nanette says:

    This may well be the proshest, most snorgalishous kittayn I have ever seen.
