THANKFUL THURSDAY ON FRIDAY

by Janet Blue on August 30, 2013

So Mom wanted us to post this yesterday…on Thursday. That does make sense, but we were mad at her and so didn’t.

The grudge we’re holding began on Wednesday after we got a package in the mail. It was from OuiOui, Mica Minnie Moo, Carl and Julie from Twinkletoe TAils, one of our super fav blogs.

Our Goodies!

Our Goodies!

Mom won some calming collars in a drawing at Twinkletoe TAils. She was probably more excited about this than anything we’ve won in the past. She wants to put them on Mauricio and Fiona. She hopes that the collar will help Mauricio stop spraying and meowing incessantly and that Fiona will stop terrorizing Astrid. The package says it could take from two weeks to one month before we might see a noticeable effect, so you will need to wait for a report as to their usefulness. Mom says that if they work, she’ll be buying them by the case.

Our kitty friends added some goodies to the package: two toys with feathers and a pack of treats. However, we only got to see these things. Our mean, old mom wouldn’t let us play with the toys or nibble any treats. She put everything away in a kitchen drawer.

The scene of the crime after being cleaned. Didn't the culprit pick a great place?

The scene of the crime after being cleaned. Didn’t the culprit pick a great place?

We think her reason for depriving us is totally bogus. She says it’s ’cause one of us left a huge projectile hurl for her to clean up. Whoever it was, and we’ll never tell, managed to hit one of the carved oak columns between the dining room and foyer and lots of hardwood floor.

Since Chris had been here to clean on Wednesday, Mom was all wound up. When she had to use about half a roll of paper towels to mop up and then a ton of Seventh Generation™ Disinfecting Multi-Surface Cleaner and a toothpick to loosen and dig the vomit out of the nooks and crannies of the columns, we knew those toys weren’t going to be distributed anytime soon.

So, we are really thankful to our friends for sending us such great goodies, but we’ll be even more thankful when Mom forgives us and we can have them.

Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

That’s cool that you won the package! But not cool that your Mom won’t let you have it. Hopefully you will get the toys and treats soon!!

Purrs,

Oh! We hope your mom relents and gives you the treats! Or at least the toys. Our mom was a little skeptical of feather toys but when we didn’t chew the feathers off and eat them, she decided they were ok. Too bad we don’t have fancy woodwork columns in our house, we’d love to see the mom on her hands and knees with a toothpick. We bow humbly to the mighty Mistress of Bomit!

(BTW, we aren’t allowed to bomit in bed, or pick our toes there either, but we can get away with picking our toes if the mom isn’t there.)

Oh dear… that sounds like one epic hurl. Still, a treat or two wouldn’t hurt, would it? We will distract your human while you go open the treat drawer…

We sure hope you are all feeling better (and that there’s no more vomiting). We hope you get those cool treats, too!

Congratulations on the spectacular choice of hairball depositories. I’ve dirties several levels of perches, wool rugs, and even inside dad’s shoe. But I’ve never managed to make them clean the woodwork with a toothpick. Hopefully your mom will forget your little indiscretion and let you have your treats soon. After all, it’s not like you choose to hack up on the woodwork, it just happened to be in your path.

The Island Cats August 30, 2013 at 7:21 pm

Well, we hope the bomiting stops so you can get your toys and treats. And we hope those collars work, too.

Sparkle August 30, 2013 at 7:20 pm

Hey! Just cause someone hurled is NOT an excuse to hold back on the toys. Neither is being too busy going to a vintage film festival, which is my human’s excuse for not even opening up the package we won yet.

Oh goodness, we barf all the time but we still have the Person trained to give us treats. That is too bad. Hope you eventually got some of those nice treats. Take care.

What you need is a Fiona! A Fiona is one of those canines who likes cat puke and will clean it up for you. I would let you borrow mine, but I really need her. Maybe I could send you her brother Zappa, he does a pretty good job too!

Scratches,

What?? No treats for the extra barf effort? Hmm, sounds like your human needs a touch of training! You didn’t do all that for nothing, after all, right? Looks like she did a sooper job cleaning though, so she should get treats too. Purrs…

Oh kitties! We can’t stop laughing about the bomit and your Mom. Hahaha! We hope she forgets about it after a good night’s rest and brings out the goodies from Twinkle Toes!
And we’re purring the calming collars work. Will be looking forward to an update!

Beverly August 30, 2013 at 11:20 am

Oh, poor kitties!! I know you can’t help where you barf. It’s not like you know to run to the bathroom to deposit it there. I’ve had to just chill out when Sophie does it, except if there’s something in her line-of-barf-site that’s important to me. Then I run like the dickens to move it away. But — I am not always around to witness the event. Hope you get off of Mommy’s “bad list” soon and can enjoy those treats and toys. I can’t wait to hear how the “calming collars” work, too.

Uhoh kitties….NOT a good idea to projectile vomit when there’s even a remote possibility of new treats and toys to be had. Somebody there didn’t get the memo! Well, perhaps the memory of having to get all that mess cleaned up will fade as the weekend comes on and the MAGIC DRAWER will open and at least those feather toys will make an appearance. Paws crossed for you…..

Kitty Hugs, Sammy

Momma said Miss Boo threw up around 5am this morning and she had to get out of bed and clean it all up. (Boo was the only kitty in the bedroom so there was no doubt it was her)

Wow who was sick? Big purrs for the upset tummy. Seems like we are all having a lot of hair balls lately but no barf so far.
Hey we tried the calming spray with Rumpy and it did nothing. He did get older and that seems to have worked. Of course now Buttons is hitting his Man-Cat Stride and pushing for top cat.
Always fun/
