Typhoon Claims The Desk Fort

So many places to spread out inside Hu-Dad’s study, but the Little Prince has claimed the desk fort as his own, personal domain.

The desk fort is mine...all mine!
The desk fort is mine…all mine!

Sleeping under the desk has many advantages. The floor is cooler in the summer which is a plus for all of that Siberian fur (and notice the floofs on Typhoon’s hips that just beg for plucking, though he hates HATES being plucked). It’s dark. And, most importantly, his siblings want it so it’s an opportunity to be a pest while pretending to be innocent.

But there is one big problem.
But there is one big problem.

Unfortunately, Hu-Dad, for some odd reason, believes that his feet should be able to go under the desk when he is working. And then his feet might—brace yourself for the horror here, folks—his feet might actually touch His Haughtiness which the Little Prince hates almost as much as being plucked. And, imagine this, Hu-Dad seems to take great delight in revving up the grumble bunny just to hear the complaints.

Life is so rough when the humans fail to recognize your royalness.

    How dare you filthy humans dare to touch King Typhoon the Haughty. Forts, Keeps, and Castles are the domain of royalty. Vacate the area immediately and allow the king and his court their area until such time as you are deemed worthy of gracing their presence….probably around the feeding times where you are graciously allowed to present them with tributes of food.

    Typhoon is a very interesting character, so alpha. :-))

    Little Prince AKA Typhoon-you are SO funny(although you don’t think so). You really have to let Hu-Dad put his feet under the desk too. I would love to hear you grumbling about that! GOTTA love those tufts of hair waiting to be plucked-our boy doesn’t like it either!

A Whiff of Wildlife

January 29, 2023

An hour before sunrise. Darkness cloaked my path. Fear bubbled up inside me. A whiff of wildlife alerted me to a heinous stalker in the woods.

While we may not be siblings since we don’t share parents, we certainly claim each other as our brothers and sisters.
