11am. Late Friday Morning.

Marcy is sleeping deeply in her prized sunspot as Penelope Kitten walks by wearing construction coveralls and hardhat. She is carrying a large hammer.

Marcy yawns. Birds sing. Bees buzz.


Marcy:  Ackkkkkk!!




Marcy furiously marches into the room with all the banging.

She stops in cold terror and screams.

Marcy:  Ackkkkkk!

Bombarding Marcy’s eyesight is an entire room full of life-sized photos of Penelope lookalikes.




Marcy (screaming in horror):  Ackkkkk!

Penelope (standing atop a ladder) gives one final blow to the nail holding up a frame.


Penelope notices Marcy quivering in the corner.

penelope kitten (squeaking): hi hi. don’t worry. i’m just redecorating.

Marcy:  Why?

penelope kitten:  ‘cause the hoomans in the house forgot about me.

Marcy:  No they didn’t. They’re just consumed with getting Scooter better.

penelope kitten:  and you only care about your solo sunspot.

Marcy:  Well, what’s Hamlet doing?

penelope kitten:  practicing his monologues.

Marcy:  Oh right. Ever since he got so much good feedback about his philosophizing, he wants to take his show on the road.

penelope kitten:  i don’t want to join “the traveling tabby troubadours”. and i don’t want to be forgotten either.

Marcy:  No one could ever forget about you, Penelope. You loom larger than these gigantic photos. Heh. Heh. Heh.

peneople kitten (squeaking):  yeah well i’d rather loom large than loom litigious, marcy very much!

Marcy (eyes dilating):  Gulp.

penelope kitten: uh hunh. how many lawsuits have been filed against you ever since you hooked up with Lawyer Cat?

Marcy:  Uhhh… guilty until proven innocent.

penelope kitten:  thought so.

Marcy:  Wait! I mean –

Cynthia walks in to the room full of life-size Penelope’s.


Cyntha:  Ackkkkkk!

Marcy (shuddering):  Terrorizing, no?

Cynthia:  Awwww …  there’re giant P’s … every … where.

Cynthia pics up Penelope and smooches her.

Cynthia: So cute. Smooch. So cute. Smooch. So cute.

Smooch smooch smooch.



Just then Scooter yells from the next room. Cynthia drops Penelope and rushes to Scooter’s aid.

penelope kitten (dusting herself off) i’m buying more pictures.

Marcy:  I’m moving to the Cayman Islands.


Marcy:  Or Cancun.

    Penelope, would you come decorate my house? This cat artwork is fabulous and I’m going for the trendy black and white look.
    Maybe we ‘ll end up on the cover of House Beautiful and you’ll become decorator to the stars.

      Thank you, Vik!
      Scooter still has the darn cone on. He’s healing but attacks the rash every time we take the cone off so it has to go right back on again. It’s so distressing. We’ll try again in a few days.
