Okay…so Kitties Blue really weren’t away but Humans Blue were. That’s right, those pesky humans, who think they can do whatever they want whenever they want, abandoned us for 15 days—an entire one-half of the month. We bet you are wondering what could take them away from our sweet and adorable selves. Well here it is:




TortolaMom calls this place paradise*. We don’t see it. Looks like one big litter box to us. Sitting around all day in a litter box is not our idea of fun.

Besides sitting around in the sand, we heard the humans, formerly known as Mom and Dad, were eating gourmet food and imbibing in rum-based, secret concoctions. Worst of all…wait for it…they were fraternizing with a whole slew of other critters. And some of those critters were C-A-T-S!

Word around the house is that a total of 1,398 photos exist attesting to this beyond-belief betrayal. Absolutely no way they are going to wiggle their way out of this purrfectly pawful perfidy.

With all those photos, we guarantee you will see more evidence of how little they care about our well-being. We know for a fact that the male human has already posted a tall tale about their abduction as well as oodles of photos on FaceBook. The female is planning a slideshow next week on our blog.

Don’t get us wrong. We were not neglected or mistreated during their absence. Kitty care-giver and housekeeper extraorinaire, Chris, came twice each day to feed and look after us. As usual, treats and catnip were in plentiful supply, and we even got to go out on the catio on nice days. That doesn’t mean we have not petitioned the commonwealth to cite them for cat abandonment. We’ll keep you posted on how that works out.

And finally, one last photo to torture tease tantalize you.

I just had to laugh at the largest litter tray I have ever seen. Lovely photos too.

What a beautiful and spectacular place. We love the photos too. Breathtaking! We can tell your pawrents had a very good time and we think you had some fun during their absence as well! 🙂 But we bet everyone was happy to see one another!

You’re right, humans are weird : Mum is totally “awwwwww” seeing the photos of that giant litter box ! And your humans left two weeks for that ? Isn’t it against some kitty law ? Purrs

That looks like a big litter box to us too. Our mom thinks it looks heavenly. We are glad that your pawrents had such a good time in such a beautiful place. It’s too bad that humans haven’t figured out a way to be in two places at one time; that way they could be on their vacation in paradise and home tending to the needs of the Kitties Blue. Love, Cali, Andy, Tater and Shelly (C.A.T.S.)

“A big litterbox”…you kitties are funny! What gorgeous photos, we are happy that your Mom & Dad had a chance to get away and be somewhere so beautiful with “rum-based secret concoctions” – sounds good to our Human! Kisses to F & G, hope they are recovering from the abandonment…

Pipo/Minko/MrJackFreckles May 1, 2015 at 11:33 pm

Oh, My!!
Glad things may get back to a more normal state, now, what evfur that is, MOL!

Meowmy is feeling pangs of envy….

Austin Towers May 1, 2015 at 6:31 pm

Just popped back to say, Mau if you submit your resumé (in triplicat!) to NUCAT headquarters, I am certain there would be a position for you! The union is looking for meowers of your calibre to help in the ongoing war … errr ….. negotiations with the Affiliate Typists!! If we stand together I know we will prevail! And if not, we can take a nap! 😉

Wow! We can envision you all together walking, playing, scratching in all that litt….er, sand, not to mention partaking in gourmet treats. Sounds like someone needs a vacation of their own!

Those were gorgeous photos we look forward to your Mom’s slideshow!

Hugs to you all,

Gosh KB crew, that DOES look like paradise so my Mom is saying “cut the humans some slack and be glad they got away for a rest” because they just might have missed you all and there may be extra treats in the offing in exchange for deserting you!!!! Sure is a beautiful spot they chose (even if it does look a lot like a humongous litterbox!).

Hugs, Sammy

Don’t worry Kitties Blue, I think this is a job for NUCAT! I reckon we could have the humans for gross neglect and abandonment plus intent to enjoy themselves (not allowed under the 1992 UN resolution #5467) Don’t worry, we’ve got it covered!

PeeEss the pictures are great. Awesome place ! 🙂

Ah! My Mommy wishes she was in that giant litter box with your Mommy. She can’t remember the last time she had a vacation.
Glad your family is all together again, rubs your scent all over your meandering humans.

WOW!!! Your parents left you for two weeks for THAT?! A giant litter box?!?! Unthinkable! Preposterous! Unacceptable!!!
Our Mom on the other hand, says… WOW!!! That looks amazing! She is so jealous and can’t wait to see more photos!
Sampy, well he is glad to hear that your parents are home because he knows Astrid is much happier. He sends her all his love and as many kisses as grains of sand on that beach. Love from all of us!

Now, you guys know what we were talking about. Mom and dad just up and left us…no thought to how we felt about them taking off. They can be oh so inconsiderate! There is one good thing that happens though….they were so happy to see us that we got loves galore and special food and treats. It just might have been worth it.

Dear abandoned kitties, thank you for venting! We don’t blame you for being miffed. We would be miffed too if someone chose palm trees over OUR company! However, here’s the thing, these individuals will be better parents now that they have seen beautiful places and had the pause that refreshes and you will be treated EVEN BETTER than ever (if that’s possible)! Just wait. Purrs for your speedy recovery from this unavoidable event.
