    Great work on the dictionary!

    I hadn't heard "Royal Septre" before but that is what Scout does to people she likes. She walks up and stretches her front right leg and paw out to you. My husband has always called it her "Elvis" because she looks like him at the end of a song when he'd kneal and extend his arm out.

    Nibblets: kitty love bites as Pee Wee loves to give on your nose or chin or cheek. Amber also loves to give these on your ankles or hands and arms!

    Rodent Alert: This is the high-pitched wailing sounds in the middle of the night when your kitty finds and "catches" one of his toy micies and brings them to your bedroom!!!
