Moon Pie

I want you to meet Moon Pie

yes....you are correct to recall from a previous post that I am not a cat person
Don't hate em'....just don't love em either .... but Moon Pie.....yea...I kinda like her.


My grandpa has a hardware store which has been in business for 58 years....I brag on that every chance I get....I think its just awesome...good ole fashion hardware store...with a bucket of free gum on the counter...and a drink machine out by the wood-shop where you can still get a drink for 50 cent.....and YES in this economy...and YES with a Lowes and a Home Depot within 5 miles.....man those are like cuss words in our family....Home Depot and Lowe's......Ewwwww.


and along with that good ole' fashion service and a smile....you also get Moon Pie.
We sell moon pies (and if you are from the south...yes we have RC in the drinkbox)...the construction workers love to grab em' a moon pie .
Well once upon a time when the moon pie box turned up empty.....Graby whom we now call Moon Pie took it over. A little background on Moon Pie real quick. We are a lumber yard as well as a hardware store...and with that comes mice....so its good to keep a cat or 2 or 10 around. One day one strolled up....and she had babies and its been goin on and on since then...we now have ...ohhhhh.....10 or more.
Well Moon Pie is the daughter of the late Mama Goldie...the first cat we ever had.
We feed them all each day and they are well cared for. Moon Pie is the inside cat.....she STAYS in this Moon Pie box. ..which sits up on the counter...front and center.
Each and every brawny...tough...dirty....and sometimes darn good lookin man that walks thru our doors....stops...and coos...and talks to....and scratches Moon Pie. She is truly livin' the good life.
Now....aren't ya glad ya got to meet Moon Pie.....
have a happy day
Pin It!

Such a cute story. Not much into cats myself - but put a fairly cute cat in a pretty cute box...I like it!

Oooh I love old hardware stores, especially the smell and the creaky wooden floors. I totally agree, Home Depot and Lowes are just nasty!!

I LOVED this story. Thank you so much for sharing it. It made me smile on a day I really needed it. :) And I'm not even a cat person, lol.
