Rosco’s New Scratching Post



I’m not the only one putting on weight since self isolation.

Rosco’s been piling on the pounds.

He’s a real tubby tabby.

He’s worn out the old scratching post so we bought him a new one but it won’t do.

Are you kidding? he snaps. It’s too small.

You’re too big, I say.

That’s like the pot calling the kettle black, he returns.

That Rosco !

Just then he looks outside.

Just the thing, he announces.

We open the door.

Rosco barges out.

His new scratching post ! It’s big, it’s natural, the bark rips off.

He’s taken to it with a vengeance.
