Red Bug Road Trip

Marcy and Penelope Kitten take out Cynthia’s red Bug for an epic road trip! …



10 am. Sunday morning. Cynthia is sound asleep.

Marcy and Penelope Kitten furtively sneak out of the house with Cynthia’s car keys.

They hop into Cynthia’s red Beetle.

Penelope Kitten puts the keys in the ignition.

Marcy and Penelope Kitten (yelling):  Road trip!!

penelope kitten (squeaking):  where r we gonna go go go?

Marcy:  Beach! Shopping! Brunch!

penelope kitten:  yay! i luv brunch.

Marcy:  Wait! Why do you get to drive? I want to drive.

penelope kitten:  u already drive.

Marcy: Hunh?

penelope kitten:  u drive me crazy. all day every day. ha ha. i’m driving.

Marcy:  I should drive. I’m a good driver.

penelope kitten:  r not. let’s zoom.

Penelope Kitten breezily and confidently puts her left paw on the steering wheel and her right elbow on Marcy’s head.

Marcy:  Oh my gato we’re all gonna die!

Penelope Kitten looks backwards in order to peel out into reverse when all of a sudden she realizes – 

penelope kitten:  uh oh.

Marcy:  What?

penelope kitten:  my back paws don’t reach the pedals.

And so ends Marcy and Penelope Kitten’s epic road trip in Cynthia’s red Bug.

    Aaaaaawwww!!! Love it!!!
    What an artist. Looking at her website I noticed she threw in a few dogs for good measure. I also love the coffee drinking cats.
    Suggestion, you guys. How ’bout Marcy gets on the floor and works the pedals while Penelope steers?

    LadyK…great minds thing alike! We must have been typing simultaneously, but obviously I’m much slower.

      Love it!! 🙂
      Great minds, indeed!
      Now let’s see if Marcy would agree… something tells me she would think she should be the one steering…

      Hmmm… I wonder if that will occur to them? Cats!

    Awww! Darling painting, and a darling story to go with it. Poor Penelope. Maybe she needs stilts? And I laughed when I saw her driving because I immediately thought, “Ooooooh…Marcy’s not gonna like that!” Ha!
