Help! I’ve only got a moment to write before the Mama comes back. She’s really mad and says she’s thinking of trading us in on hamsters, or – even worse – parakeets!!! She also said that she thinks I belong in a feline juvenile detention center! (sob)
Last night I got yelled at maybe 50 times for jumping on the kitchen counter, and then come bedtime I wouldn’t settle down and kept chasing Sleeper around the house. Finally, I stopped for awhile – we’d gone out to the cattery to watch the nightlife. Come midnight or so, I was at it again, though, zooming around the house, leaping up on things and over the Mama, too! After the third pass over her, she grabbed me, and with much grumbling, put me in our bedroom and shut the door. Whew! For a minute there, I was afraid she was going to keep me separate from Sleeper (oh no!!!), but then she was back with Sleep tucked under her arm, mumbling more threats under her breath.
I ran in and out of the catdoor into the cattery a few times making as much noise as possible. Then I chased Sleep around a little - just to show I didn’t care that we (me!) were being punished. But Sleeper quickly lost interest, (she doesn’t like to make the Mama unhappy) and she went to sleep.
This morning I could tell the Mama was still feeling ticked off; she says she’s always like that WHEN SHE DOESN’T GET ENOUGH SLEEP. Mostly I kept to myself, though Sleeper had to go suck up and make sure she was still “the good kitty” – yuck!!! Not me – I can do what I want!..........
(Do you think I should go apologize? She was just kidding, right? I don’t want to be traded for a parakeet. Sniffle…)
She won't trade you in, Samhain. Promise. Pawrents get grouchy when we interrupt their sleep.
I 'grees wif B'izzard. Oh shoulda heared da fings Jen was sayin when I's singed all nite on vacation. OH WAIT! No youse too young fur dose words. MOL
I think you need to rethink your policy on not being the good kitty!! It's VERY worth it to be good, for me anyway!! I'm not allowed on counters, either, or any tables where mom puts food or drinks. She has always said, "NO!", loudly and firmly, then snapped her fingers at me or "flicked" me until I get down by myself. Then she says, "Good girl". But I really stopped doing it, because one time she said,"You don't see ME getting up on the counter, DO YOU??" So I thought about it, and it took me awhile, but...NO, I've NEVER seen her get up on the counter!! Maybe your momma is RIGHT!!! Luv, Tink (alias Barbara F, sorry!)
I don't think you'll be traded in on a parakeet - who could replace your craziness with a bird?
Thanks for the moral support, guys! And thanks, Tink for the counseling - I thought about it and was better last night - really! There was only the one time I got caught, and it was all that stupid kettle's fault. It's a stainless steel tea kettle that normally sits on the stove, but was for some strange reason, on the side board where I like to jump up. Well, it went flying with a loud crash, narrowly missing our ceramic food dishes! But other than that, I was a good kitty!
oh what is the big deal about the counters?! Mom gets all crazy and tells me to get off if I get on there too none of us hardly ever do it any more but sometimes boo and I kinda forget, mom just calls our names and points to the chair cause we know it is ok to sit there. Now the chase oh yea we can do some chaing and it is so much fun!
Watch out for the crzay tea kettle glad it did not fall on ya.
lots of love.
itz against de law ta trade kittehs in for burds, stooopid burds, total lee stooooooopid burds, rude burds or noizee burds.
given de fact all burds is rude, stooooooooooooooooopid, noizee and total lee stoooooooooooooopid, ewe haz nothin ta worree about....
Oh, wow! Thanks guys! You've really taken a load off my mind. We didn't know it was illegal to trade kitties for birds! I wonder if the Mama knows that?
OMC! I hope that law exists in Canada too!
Or we are all in trouble. MOL Just the other day I heard her mutter, birds in a cage, that's what I need. MOL
As for staying off counters, tables etc; My mom has capitulated!
We know we are not allowed. Can't seem to retain that knowledge for more than 5 minutes at a time.
So basically she is down to one rule, nobody gets on a counter when she is cooking or gets on a table when
humans are eating!! Or ELSE!
Congrats on being a DDP!
I will be back later with a memento.
Love and bonks
