How to Terrify Your Mom in Four Easy Steps by Audrey

"So dad's been working on fixing the back door outside.
This means that I have to stay in their bedroom while he's doing it
because there aren't any other doors to close me off in the house.
As I'm sure everycat is aware, This Is Not Fair To Cats™!!
Fortunately, dad forgot about the fact that I am
fast, fast, fast and I managed to get OUT.
But he caught me and put me in the fenced yard.  HA!"

"You see, during time I've walked outside, I found out that you can jump over the back and side fence!  Well, I didn't do that the first time I got OUT of the back yard.  Muahahahahahahaha!  No, I went under the fence through a spot mom didn't know about!  Go me!!"

"For some reason mom got all worried and scared about me being out and going into the bushes with the sharp thingees that didn't bother me at all!  She was calling and calling.  My twin brother of another mother Star and my brother Zaphoid came OUT with me after all!!  Really!!  Why would it bother mom just because she didn't have Star's toys that mom calls shoes??  She almost got me and then went in to get some stinky stuff called too-nah.  All the boys wanted it and I came out to get some but stinky ole' mom tried to pick me up!!  Pooh!  I jumped back into the yard.  Mom tried to pick me up again so of course I had to jump back over again!  Then I went back into the brush and the Lady Next Door who has all the Woofies That Yell at Us asked what was wrong.  Mom told her that I was OUT.  ::rolls eyes::  The Lady Next Door said something about 'beating the bushes'.  I didn't like the sound of that so I ran back out again.  Wouldn't you know it, mom got me this time!!  She tossed me into the house and pulled the not-yet-fixed-door so that I couldn't open it.  ::pout::  Then she came back into the house through the front door.  I told her and told her I wanted to go back OUT but she said "No!"  Mean ole' mommy!!  She even made me go back into her room!  Oh well, at least she let me have the too-nah in there.  Harrumph."

"Well, I'm tired and I'm going to take a nap now.  It's hard
work scaring moms!!  I need to make sure I'm extra
extra cute so she'll give me looooots of treats tonight.
I'm really going to need them!  Hmmm, I wonder what 'adult beverages' are and why mom is talking about them?"

The Bad and the Good and the Oh My!

First the bad so we can get it out of the way and then feel better by looking at pictures of sweet babies.  This message was passed on from on of the blogs I read regularly (I actually read a lot but don't have the energy to reply but we purr & pray for everycat that needs it!).  It seems that Caboodle Ranch, a no-kill home for kitties with no other place to go may have become a hoarding situation.  Here is some more information about it.  I don't have absolute proof, but if anyone does, please please let me know!  This is very sad and we are purring & praying for the sweet cats there.

For the good.  Well, there's a bit of bad.  Somehow we can't find Audrey's harness & leash!!  Fortunately she has a backup harness and I was able to cobble up something to use as a leash.  She doesn't like this harness as much since it's an H as opposed to a Figure 8 which is what most cats prefer.  I hope we find it!!

"Hey mom!!  I'm ready to go ou-ut!!
What do you mean I need my leash??"

"Mmmmmm, open window... mmmmmmm"

"So-oo what are you guys doing to my bathroom??"

"Okay Audrey, mom & dad are trying to get the house in shape so they can have the house appraised so they can get the house refinanced and pay off some stuff.  That'll mean more treats." - Star

"More treats!  More treats!!" - Knives & Audrey

"Now if mom could just afford a cleaning team.  I have no idea
why she keeps complaining about me spraying everywhere.
It was not me.  No, really!!" - Thomas

::yawn:: "I'll help by taking a nap.
I'm sure that will be very very helpful." - Zaphy
