His Name is Valentine, But I Call Him Punk

January 23, 2008

Daisy spends most of her time sleeping — either on our bed or in the big comfy chair in the den. Today, she was snoozing happily in the chair when Valentine sauntered in and jumped up beside her. I shook the water bottle to let him know that I would squirt him in a New York minute if he messed with my cat, and after recognizing the warning, he settled in next to her.

His tail unfurled across the edge of the chair, the last few inches of it right in front of Daisy’s face. She surprised me by lifting her head, surveying the situation, and deciding to groom him. She licked his tail clean, then her own front paws (where he had sullied them with his filthy presence!), and laid her head back down.

So, what did Punk do after this unusual display of affection from Miss Daisy? He twitched his tail so that it repeatedly thwacked her in the face.


Hence the name.



  1. That is hilarious! Gotta love those cats 🙂

  2. That is funny! What a Punk!
