Hmm… the two-leggers are using the strange sounds they make whenever they have a treat for the kittens, or want to pet the kittens, or the kittens have played with something they shouldn’t… but the tone isn’t that high-pitched sound they use with tiny things, nor that hissy tone they use when the kittens are in trouble… I wonder what is going on?
Later that day the wrinkly one and her kit gather up the kittens in a cozy four-sided place for a trip in the roaring monster. They mew the entire time, and I can’t say I blame them; myself and their mother don’t enjoy travel by the roaring monster any better.
When we arrive, the wrinkly one lets me and my queen out to play, but the kittens are left in the four-sided cozy place. It’s a fine plaything, to be sure, but their mother is unamused when she spies the grand plaything, filled with so many sneaky hiding places, behind the wrinkly one.
The wrinkly one’s kit starts making a lot of noise, but I can’t imagine why. But suddenly there is a crowd of two-leggers watching my kittens playing in their cozy four-sided place, making all sorts of those high-pitched sounds. Their kitten powers must be particularly strong today…
My mate watches from atop the grand plaything as I watch from the sidelines, staring up as the kittens are lifted from their four-sided cozy place and shown to all these two-leggers. A few give them pets, and go on their way. But some of the two-leggers seem interested in playing with the kits.
Hmmm… One of the two-leggers seems to have an interest in Three-paw. She is using that voice the wrinkly-one uses around the kittens or the tiny one, and Three-paw seems quite interested in her smells…
…And the smells of her mate. He really seems fond of these two-leggers…
…Perhaps it is finally the time that my kits take two-leggers of their own?
Two-paw, too, seems to have found a two-legger with smells that pique her interest.
Aaaaah, she has treats! My clever girl. I really have taught my kittens well…
But I will leave you with one last life lesson, kittens… as long as you can bring that expression to your two-legger’s face, you will be one content, spoiled cat for life.
Good luck, kittens. I know you are prepared to be the finest of house cats.
That night, we return to our den, but it feels so different without the kittens in it. Their mother can’t help but feel worried, but I comfort her in the knowledge that we raised fine kittens that deserve to have the finest dens and two-leggers of their own.
The den is… unnaturally quiet. I think the wrinkly one and her kit can feel it, too.
This chapter marks the cross-story adoption of Boo and Trixie by Robin and Alina McIntyre from Sweetnightingale’s Another World and Ileah Ralston from Sweetnightingale’s Colors of Loving! Thank you Sweetnightingale for the use of your Sims! (I didn’t have the custom-content for their hair, so forgive me for the slight differences in their appearances. I also don’t have Supernatural, hense their de-magicked states). From this point forward Boo and Trixie will be continuing their lives with their new two-leggers in these stories, so you can follow them there! I’m sure Shadow’s teachings will have served them well.
Boo (“Three-paw”), Shadow’s son (and the one that looks a bit more like his mother in the face) was chosen by Alina and Robin, and Trixie (“Two-paw”), Shadow’s daughter (who looks a bit more like Shadow in the face) was chosen by Ileah. I put the Sims into my household and watched their wishes to see who wanted to interact with which kitten. Boo also seemed to take a particular fondness to Robin; the pictures were too dark so I couldn’t use them, but he spent a lot of time chasing him around!
