Mildred the Cat – I want a groundhog friend

United States
February 6, 2018 9:55am CST
Hi everybody. It’s Mildred the Cat. I had planned on posting something yesterday but decided to extend my napping time instead. Right now my mom is looking out the window at the snow coming down. She is muttering about some idiot groundhog Phil from Punxsutawney. Allegedly, a few days ago, Phil predicted six more weeks of winter. My mom doesn’t like Phil. I did some research on groundhogs, including Phil and also Chuckles, another groundhog, who lives closer to my area. Chuckles predicted an early spring. My mom does like Chuckles. Both groundhogs look cute and friendly and I’d like to set up a Meet and Greet and get to know them better. I must admit, both Phil and Chuckles look bigger than me, which does cause me some concern, especially if I make a bad first impression. What do you guys think? Should I take the risk, extend an invitation to Phil and Chuckles and hope for the best? I’d appreciate your input before I approach my mom about this. Thanks, everybody. Have a great day. Till next time, purrs, paws and high fives. Image: Mine

Better not with Phil. Mom doesn't like him.

You're probably right about that.

But, what if you are bigger than they are?

Most of me is just lots and lots of fur. My real body size is very tiny, plus there are two of them against one little me.

@LindaCPearson ......Looks like your head is bigger than your body.

@celticeagle Two reasons for that: 1) I have lots of brains 2) When I get my haircut, they shave my body but leave most of my fur above the neck.

If you wait till your coat grows you'd look much bigger but I'm sure groundhogs are friends little critters. They look like they would be.

That picture of me is after one of my summer lion shave haircuts. My hair is really long right now but somehow I'm still a bit intimidated by the looks of Phil and Chuckles, plus there's two of them!

@LindaCPearson Divide and conquer. Invite them one at a time.

Scar saw a pair out in the yard last summer he wanted to meet, but I told him it was probably not a good idea, since I looked it up and whistlepigs aren't very sociable

Thanks for the info. Maybe I should rethink this idea. Give my best regards to Scar.

I am quite sure that both of the groundhogs would love to meet a pretty kitty like you Mildred. By the way, my oldest sister was named Mildred, she was called Milly.

Mildred, I think you should meet with the children of Phil and Chuckles first. Tiny baby hedgehogs would be safer to meet than those that are far too big.
