Mama says our staycation is becoming more of a workcation. Today after she did errands in town, mama decided Gunnie and I should have our first campster lesson. Mama put a potty in the campster. Then mama made a HUGE mistake. She put me and Gunnie in the same carrier and tried to lug us down to the campster. We were too heavy, and we were dancing around inside and rocking the carrier. Mama said her arm almost fell off before we got to the campster even though it is not very far.
Mama let me and Gunnie out of the carrier. Mama was trying to be real casual about it all, so she got out her little player and started listening to an audio book. Gunnie and I were exploring, sniffing, and climbing on things. Mama decided to go to the bedroom and see if we would come in and get on the bed with her. Nope. It was too exciting out in the kitchen and living room part. Then Gunnie found the potty and tried it out. It was silly. Mama kept telling him what a good boy he was...just for going pee in the potty. Big deal.
Mama was relaxing on the bed when she heard a big thump. She got up and came out to see what we were doing. She could find me, but Gunnie had vanished. Then mama heard wailering from behind the couch. She got on the couch and looked behind. Yeppers, Gunnie was trapped behind the couch. It makes into a bed, but mama was worried she might squish Gunnie with the bed. Mama tried to get Gunnie by his scruff. I managed to hide my giggling behind a paw when my brother would not fit through the hole to get out.
Mama wondered why she did not bring her cell phone, but she did not have it, so she had to trot over to grampster's house. Before mama left to get grampster, she put me back in the carrier so I could not get into trouble too. Grampster came back with mama. Gunnie was wailering for help. Finally grampster held parts of the couch up while mama climbed on top, grabbed Gunnie by his scruff and pulled him to safety. Boy was Gunnie's face red. He thinks he is a man cat, but he was wailering for help like a kitten. Mama held Gunnie for awhile and made sure he wasn't hurt Then she let him go, and he stalked off with as much dignity as he could muster which was not much.
Mama was probably thinking how glad she was that the excitement was over for the evening when she went back to the bedroom to listen to her book some more. Later she heard another noise and came back out to check. Gunnie was there, but mama could not find me. She looked all around the campster and called my name but no Peekie. Then mama climbed on the couch and looked behind it again. Yeppers, there I was looking kind of scared but not making a peep. It took three tries, but mama finally got me by the scruff and pulled me up through the hole. We were both glad I am still slim enough to fit through the hole.
The good news is Gunnie and I both learned a lesson, and we settled down after that and were good kits. I think if mama gave us a grade on our first campster lesson, it would be a D. Mama is hoping we will do better next time. Maybe...
Campster exploration sounds like a whole lot of fun! We are sure you and Gunnie will be just fine once the newness wears off. Enjoy your summer staycation.
