Pawsies or Paws?

In my book I have a lovely photo of my pawsie. One of Lynettea's 'friends' told her that I shouldn't call it a 'pawsie'. Well Lynettea calls it a 'pawsie', so how am I supposed to know? I asked her and she said 'Well Diamond, I suppose it is really kitten-talk and you should say 'paw'.
Now she tells me, after twelve years of referring to them as pawsies! I must be the oldest cat in the world still having kitten-talk used to him. I am twelve, in case you have forgotten. I find this very disturbing and feel that my human is trying to keep me a kitten instead of admitting I am a mature cat. Is there some Office I can ring and COMPLAIN?

If I wasn't such a well mannered Gentlecat, I might suggest putting the 'BITEY' on the 'friend'. As it is, I suppose I will have to suffer in silence.
p.s. Enjoy the tiger paws. I don't suppose anyone will dare call them 'tiger pawsies.'

Paws works for us, although our Mum sometimes calls them pawsies in the midst of lots of babytalk.

You might just have to put up with the occasional slip back to 'pawsies' like us...sigh

Diamond, I think it is okay to call them "paws" OR "pawsies"! Sometimes my Mommie calls my front paws my "little hands".

Just put the bitey on the furiend. YOu can call them whatever you want.

Diamond said...

Thanks for all your responses and suggestions. Derby I have decided not to put the bitey on the friend, as she has bought my book and the money will go to helping other kitties (and a few dogs).

Well, I am 10 and SS still call them pawsies. It's OK by me.

I think pawsies are nice. Perhaps the tiger thinks of his own paws as pawsies too!
