Yesterday when the pink carrier came out, guess who went running to hide under the bed?
If you guessed Mr. "Alpha" Nuk - you're correct ! As soon as he heard the latch that opens the wire door, off he went "slink running."
I stayed calm, out and about and supervised. I'm feeling fine, so I knew the carrier wasn't coming out for me.
Poor Wookie Gabby though, if she *was* scared she didn't move, maybe she just wasn't feeling well enough to put up much of a fight. Anyway, she's been smelling kind of *funky* lately, so I wasn't too surprised to see her get deposited into the carrier and taken out of the house. No doubt going for a *special* visit to the Tortury!
No "several nights booking" at the Tortury for our Wookie though, maybe an hour later or so, Mama, Papa, and Wookie were all back home. Let me tell you, if I thought that Gabby smelled "kind of funky" before she left, upon returning home she was bringing the FULL funk!
She was missing some hair on her neck, smelled like Tortury liquids and there was some gooey, oozing thing "giving up the funk!"
I asked her "What did *they* do to you?" - but I never got an answer, Papa scooped the Wookie up and took her along with Mama into the bathroom... Where, no doubt, some extra tortures sent home from the Tortury, were performed. After being let free of the bathroom, Gabby took off looking for a place to hide.
A little later an exhausted Mama laid down for a nap, Papa thought he'd join her and guess who joined them?
Right... Mr. "Alpha" himself. Except he was so *needy* and sickeningly sweet. Making his big, round, soft eyes and walking back and forth from Mama's chest to Papa's and bumping their hands to make them pet him. I don't know what that whole *display* was about, but as Nuk was settling himself down on and holding on to Mama, I gave a little snort and left the bedroom in disgust.
Curled up ALONE in the big red chair, I realized that we have an "Orange Contingent" here! Gabby has diluted orange in her hair, Little Ancho is very orange furred and I have spots or orange. If I could only *mobilize* those two (The Wookie and the hamster!) We could have a coup and rule the house. (even if I would have to be the "brains" of the whole operation, and don't even ask how a Tri Color, a Wookie and a Hamster are going to overthrow the Striped Nuisance and two Humans...)
*sigh* - well a girl can dream, can't she?!
Anyway, the good news in all of this is that Gabby is much improved today over yesterday. Her appetite is fully back and she's drinking her water. She's no longer giving off heat like a furry furnace! (The *Funk* is still draining from her, but even that doesn't smell quite the same as it did.)
Striped Nuisance is still singing his "It wasn't me" song... but I've got to wonder ;)
What's with these SNs? I've got one now, too. Come to think of it, I've got my own Wookie, too! Maybe even two with Leo and Sophie! Good luck with your coup, I fully support you!
I am glad Gabby is feeling much better today! I will purr for Gabby. Sounds like you have your paws full Gabby!
Hugz and purrs, Sassy
I meant to say it sounds like you have your paws full around there Sweets! Sorry, Mama made a typo!!
Hugz and purrs, Sassy
*sigh* sweet dreams, eh? but i guess it might be even harder to teach your "contingent" than it could ever be to revolt successfully... :(
however - i cross all paws for gabby to be back to normal soon!
