(Joint Post by Anne Belov & Cordelia’s Mom)


It’s so hard to give enough attention to your first charge after the second one arrives.


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERADear Mehitabel [Boss Cat],

Now that I’m big, my mom doesn’t love me any more.  Sure, she still feeds me, gives me water, takes me for walks and plays with me.  But she used to take lots and lots of pictures of me, and now she’s taking pictures of that teddy bear instead.  I don’t even know where she got the stupid thing.  She even gave it a name – “Teddy Rosalie.”

I hear she’s planning to go on someting called “photo shoots” with some of our three girls and the teddy bear – without me!

I’d love to tear the stuffing out of it, but Mom keeps it way up high where I can’t reach it.

What do you think of all this?

Your Faithful Servant, Cody.


IMGP4855Dear (cough, cough) Cody,

I really hate to say I can identify with a dog, but I must say, I feel your pain. But, I also have to say, that (so far) you only have to share your mom with one stuffed invader. At last count, there were more than 20 &#¥¥#+@&!!! stuffed pandas occupying a corner of mom’s bedroom. 

Where will it all end?

I’m trying to decide if I should give you advice that will get you in trouble, or advice that will help you in your hour of need. Ha ha ha ha ha ha! I’m a cat, how do you THINK I am going to respond to your dilemma?

Stuffed bears are a blight on the face of the earth! We must do our part to rid the world of this plague of pandas, and um… Of Teddy Bears named Rosalie????? 

Be brave, be valient, and, um, if you get in trouble, don’t call me, call a lawyer.

Yours, Mehitabel




Dear Boss Cat,

What’s a lawyer?  Can a lawyer get rid of Teddy Rosalie?

Hope your cough gets better real soon.

Your friend, Cody.

Dear Cody,

Around here, we call them “thieving attornies”. When you hire a lawyer, both parties agree to give all the money to the lawyers. Well, that’s what Mr. Badger says, and he seems to know about these things.

I don’t think a lawyer can get rid of Teddy Rosalie (and what kind of name is THAT for a bear?) you may have to take more “drastic measures” if you know what I mean.



Cody122114Thanks, Boss Cat –

I’m not sure, but I guess you mean I should just eat the bear?  Maybe Mom will leave it around somewhere.  I’ve gotten really good at stealing Mom’s socks and shoes when she’s not looking, even when she thinks she’s put them up high.  🙂

Thanks for all your help, Boss Cat.  Pretty soon you’ll be seeing new photos of ME – heck I can sit by a daffodil plant just as well as that stupid stuffed bear.  And I’m cuter!  (That bear doesn’t even have a tail to wag.)

Your friend, Cody



OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI must say I did wonder at the increased traffic on my street recently – could it be all those lawyers looking for a new client?  Or has Cody hired a hit man?  Does Teddy Rosalie need to hire security?  Only time will tell.

    Dear Teddy Rosalie
    This is Vladimir the Vampire Bear, I live at willow21’s pad and I am sending you this email post haste! I have intercepted some emails of murderous intend on your human’s blogythingy! It appears that your human’s dog Cody has been emailing a cat called Boss Cat asking her / him for advice on how to get rid of you!! ( jealousy the green eyed monster I’ll be bound)
    Rosalie I cannot impress strongly enough the the immanent danger that you are in. May I as an Immortal Vampire Bear ( who willow has written about ) offer my services as a professional bear bodyguard, I will work for you free gratis as I am just that kind of guy!
    I promise not to drink too much of your human’s blood or the dog who is obviously mislead and miss informed by this Boss Cat … I may have to teach that Cat a lesson !
    I am your not too humble servant

    Dogs and cats agree, oh, my! I can hardly Bear it. 🙂 Smart animals, all.


  6. Paul says:

    Heads up for all bears – if you are crossing customs borders watch out for your stuffing. They will check your stuffing and if it is organic material, may hold you there until your owner comes back. Bears can be problematic at borders – unless, if course you can fly at the speed of light – then you’re fine.


  7. This is obviously a plot against cats! I hear all the pandas in the other room mumuring and grumbling when I walk by to drink out of my special water glass.
    I am not sure what a woozle is, but I believe Winnie ther Pooh(another confounded bear! Curses!) went hunting woozles with piglet once. I hate to align myself with a mere dog, but these bears are getting out of paw…I mean hand.
    What to do, what to do?


    • Dear Mehitabel –
      I can’t worry about pandas right now. I hear Teddy Rosalie murmuring about bringing in “reinforcements.” I’ll let you know if I need help.
      Your Faithful Friend, Cody

    Puppy Cody missed Mehitabel (may she rest in peace). Mehitabel could always be counted on for just the right viewpoint. Thanks, Anne Belov, for sharing Mehitabel with us through the collaborated posts.


  13. Love it, CM. What a cute and interesting conversation! 😻💕
