Dunk Dunk Goosed...What the Pfffttt! Just Happened?

As some of you may know, us kitties like to test our skills in jumping, climbing, and the feline equivalent of tightrope walking. Some of us like to add a little challenge to the latter and attempt to walk all the way around the rim of a bathtub of water.

I've heard humans mention a game called "dunk dunk goosed" but I never knew what it meant until today when its meaning was taught to me in reverse order.

Lately I've felt I needed to do something to remind Mom that I'm the Queen and deserve to get the most attention around here and those newcomers need to get used to that fact. I'd impressed Mom before by walking all the way around the bathtub of water while she was in it, but it'd been a long time ago. Now seemed a good time to impress Mom again and at the same time, remind her that I'm the one who is Queen around here.

There I was, getting ready to demonstrate my superior balancing skills by walking all the way around the rim of the bathtub while it was half filled with water. In that water sat Mom. I leaped up onto the edge of the tub, neatly poised to pivot into place to begin my walk when suddenly.....Bbbbrrrrrr ! A shiver went up my spine! KerSPLASH! I fell headfirst into the water! I hissed, "What the PFFFFTTTTTTT!!!!! just HAPPENED?"

Angry, embarrassed, and soaked, I leaped back up onto the edge of the tub barely in time to catch a glimpse of a big long dark feather duster tail disappear around the corner of the bathroom door. There's only one cat who has a big long dark feather duster tail around here like that....Velcro!!! To make matters worse, Mom was laughing at me.

"You got goosed then you got dunked," Mom laughed.

Then Mom proceeded to tell me that Velcro had very quietly sneaked up on me and poked his cold nose into a sensitive part of my rear, startling me and causing me to end up getting dunked in the water. I must have been concentrating so hard on trying to execute my balancing act perfectly enough to impress Mom with it, that I didn't even hear him. Now I not only have to think up something else to do to impress Mom and remind her I'm still the Queen of the house, I also have to think up some way to get even with Velcro for goosing and dunking me!

Sorry, Uno...we couldn't help but laugh (at least mom and Harley laughed). Raj & I have both done the walk around the tub while mom is taking a soak trick. Raj even likes to lick up some water cuz he thinks it's a giant water bowl, but I'm above such things. Both of us have almost slipped into the water a couple of times--yikes! We got lucky & managed to escape the watery doom. Now that we have heard your frightful adventure, we are going to be extra careful!

One of our clowder, Baby, now at da Bridge, used to jump up on a shelf and furom here on a door trim to walk to da top of da door.
I could do dis, too, but no ofur of us could do dese two, so we didn't get goosed. I didn't goose Baby but bit her ankles to show I was boss. 
So fur getting even, surprise him at somefing, or hide somefing.

MOL! Too funny! I'm sure you'll think of something "special" for Velcro.
