Aby-a-Day – 30 March: Alfred and his mother (part three)(Friday Flashback)

This is the third installment of posts about Alfred’s family. I was lucky enough to get to meet both of his parents, all of his littermates, and some other relations as well. Today we’ll see a little bit of Freddy’s relationship with his mother. Last week’s post is here.

While we were visiting Alfred and his littermates, Artemis, their mother, decided that Freddy needed to go upstairs to bed.

Although she’s had several litters, Artemis seems a little unclear on the whole “carrying kittens by their scruffs” concept.

She sort of carried him by his front neck.

Of course, it didn’t help that Freddy wasn’t sleepy and didn’t want to go to bed upstairs.

Okay, upstairs we go, little man.

…A slight readjustment of grip…and we’re carrying, we’re carrying…

Come on, you little brat…cooperate. Mommy needs…I mean, YOU need a nap!

Mother knows best, after all.

…And up the stairs she whisks him.

Say goodnight, Freddy.

But what’s funny is, when Freddy wants to grab Logan by the scruff…he usually grabs him by the throat, just like his mother did to him. The only difference is, Logan doesn’t put up with it.
