Binky and Toggles, the sweet kittens, were playing with toilet paper and cotton balls in a big silly pile of dandilion heads, the blowy kind. They batted and pawed and frolicked and grew fluffier and sweeter with each bat and paw. Binky, a rascal, blew dandilion fluff into Toggles and all of the fluffy seeds stuck in her crazy long whiskers and made her sneeze, Achoo! Toggles took two steps back, wiggled her fuzzy bum and pounced with a tiny, kitten roar! They tumbled and bumbled and patted and batted and ended up in a playful heap, dandilion fluff and floaty bits of cotton batton settled gently on top of them. By that time they were so tuckered that Toggles fell asleep with her soft, sleepy face on Binky's tummy and they purred and slept in the sunlight under a window in the springtime.

11/30/2004 Will Disney (5): This is a really sweet story!
11/30/2004 The Rid: A difficult vote, this. Do I 1-star it for the bad spelling and self conscious goofiness, or do I 5-star it for the sweetness and the fact that I like kittens?
11/30/2004 TREE (5): There is nothing like a fuzzy bum to make you stop and think.

11/30/2004 Dylan Danko: This one keeps getting better
11/30/2004 Jon Matza (5): Good idea, author. The more I read the more I felt strangely defiled.
11/30/2004 TREE: Why do I get angrier each time I read this?
11/30/2004 The Rid (3): Sorry, author. Gotta go with the middle ground based on my previous comment.
11/30/2004 Litcube (5): This is straight out of my head, and very refreshing.
11/30/2004 The Rid: Having seen these kitties, I now hate myself for 3ing this short. Fuck.

12/1/2004 Pix (5): Totally refreshing AND Fuzzy, my kitty loves this one!
12/1/2004 scoop: By kitty, do you mean what I hope you mean?
12/2/2004 scoop (4): If you replaced "kittens" with "firefighters" I would be behind this thing 200 percent, the exact amount, coincidentally firefighters give every day to be heroes, especially when they die babysitting a bridge in the suburbs of Baghdad.
12/3/2004 Mr. Pony (5): This is so rad. The Rid, when I look at the picture below, I think about how you chopped the gray kitten's back feet off with your three. That chubby little kitty looks ready to cry! Because you cut off her back feet, with your three.
12/3/2004 CrazyGuy (5): Wonderful story. TheBuyer, I really enjoyed this story and feel it is the sort of material my whole family might enjoy. Please tell me about your experiences here at acmeshorts.com. Have you ever felt pressure to compose innapropriate material? And if so, how did you manage to overcome this pressure and compose family stories such as this?
12/3/2004 TheBuyer: I feel that the acme community has embraced me as a friend, nay, brother despite my obvious handicap. By reading my comments and other shorts you have no doubt deduced that I am fairly severely 'retarded' or 'touched' as we say here in Canada, AND i'M ACTUALLY A LITTLE SCARED OF YOU. a LOT SCARED OF YOU. pLEASE DON'T TOUCH MY KITTIES. iF YOU DO, i'LL KNOW. i ALWAYS KNOW. sorry, my caps lock button is very large, I didn't mean to yell. Please don't touch my kitties.
01/24/2005 Daphne: This is one of the first stories I read on this site. You might want to put some sort of warning on this page.
01/24/2005 TheBuyer: Too dirty?
01/24/2005 Cyrus: This makes you look like a sick puppy TheBuyer.
