Running Secrets #1


What happens when you run?  Do your beans laugh at you?  Mine laugh at me, and do you know why?  They think my stride should get longer when I run, BUT IT DOESN'T!!  When I run, my legs just move faster but my stride stays the same length.  So they laugh at my fast moving toes and flashing feet!  In fact, that's how I earned the nickname "Twinkletoes".  They even use it as a verb, as in "Oui Oui is twinkletoeing."

I  can't be the only kitty out there who twinkletoes.  Oops, now they have ME doing it!

MY bean laffs at me when I run but only because she thinks the sound of my feets hitting the floor is so funny! That woman would probably laff at anything..the nerve!

the one who came before - Ralphie, did the same thing! Billy does it too.

We have never noticed whether any of us have short strides. But that is really rude of the Mom to laugh at you for the way you run. Although it probably does look kind of funny.Just ignore all of them.

I laugh at Dante when he runs, because all you see is fluff moving quickly.

I think "Twinkletoes" is a lovely knickname, and that you should be proud of it. I mean, how many kitties can say that their toes twinkle?

Mum always laughs at Hannah when she runs - her legs are a little on the short side and so they go very fast and it makes her bottom sway!
Our Mum is very rude and you should see her run.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

We say that instead of worrying about it, you should be PROUD, Oui Oui!

Twinkletoes is a delightful name, even if for the wrong reason. You can hardly see when Kizzie runs, she moves so fast.

My mom laughs at me when I run because I got big feets and it looks funny when I run...at least that's what she says...I don't think I look funny at all!!

My mom and dad laugh when I run because I am so FAST! I can be walking along nonchalantly, and then like a flash, I'm gone! :)

My Mommie laughs at me because she says I leap about when I run. I do like to take a running leap over my sisfur!
