Hey..... if you want to catch up the adventures of Minnie Moo, Mr Hawk and why it's never ok to be a bully, read on here. Tanks!
|Zonked from climbing Fear Mountain|
Safely home and tucked in all warm and cuddly in my bed, well M’s bed actually I thought about my adventure with Mr T, the most incredible Bunny Rabbit I've ever met, Mayor Thumper leader of all the little village anipals and the once nasty and old big bully but now nice as pie, Mr Hawk.
As scary as our adventure was I managed to conquer 'fear' mountain, it was super challenging and I almost ran out of puff but boy, it was oh-so-worth-it.
You see for a long time I was terrified of those big birds of prey and direct descendant of the dinosaur, Hawk’s. All they did all day was fly around in menacing circles ready to swoop down on delicious looking little ones aka Minnie Moo's and take them on a way one ticket to never to be seen again land.
It got to the point where I was 100% totally convinced the ceiling fan in our old house was one big mean angry Hawk.
As you know on our adventure I met a certain Mr Hawk and instead of backing down and letting his bully bird ways turn me in a wobbly bowl of jelly I decided it was time for me to find my inner strong confident Minnie Moo and stand up to my greatest fear, Mr Hawk.
Using words from the dictionary I had secretly stored in my brain and with the support of Mr T and all the anipals from Little Village, I found my big hearty cat voice and let him know the reasons why it’s never ok to be a bully, in fact I think I remember using made up words like bully ssshmully.
Living in that moment I felt no fear and didn’t even think about being whisked off to never to be see again land. All I kept thinking was ‘hey leave us all alone, we’ve never done anything bad to you or your family plus you're a part of our community and we're supposed to look out for one another. It's hard when you've learnt your bad behaviour from your family and your family’s family but you know in this day and age its ok to change. If you’re worried that if you stop eating us little anipals you won't have enough food, don't worry, there’s always plenty and loads of birdseed in the cupboard.'
Amazingly Mr Hawk turned his life around, I think Mrs Hawk had a lot to do with it as she wanted her little bird's Dad to be a positive role model able to give them each a little tool box on how to deal with the beautiful, good, bad and ugly that life can dish out.
So before I closed my eyes to nap I typed a little list on my i-pad with the bold title in bright pink capitals BULLY SSSHMULLY BULLIES AREN'T COOL CATS
Bully’s are mean
Because mostly they don’t know any other way or are under pressure from someone else to look and act mean. Deep down though they’re craving a little love, attention and just for someone to say something positive about them.
Bully's pick on you because they think they can
But you know what, they can't. It's never ok.
We may be different on the outside but we’re pretty much all the same on the inside.
Just like a super hero I learnt a cool trick
'put on an imaginary cape' so mean nasty words just bounce right off and don't hurt.
It takes a clock to change bad ways
You need a lot of time and understanding. Us cats aren’t very patient so I had to learn how to have a little more of that patience stuff.
Share your worries with others
I told Mr T and before long we found another support group; all the anipals from Little Village. I never-ever felt alone. Besides a problem shared is a problem halved or something like that.......
And finally, always look for a positive in a not so good situation. Like is my friskie bowl half empty or half full?
With loads of love and friskies Minnie Moo xxx
