SHE IS IN BIG trouble


..........with a captial 
T
Good morning friends, Romans and peeps
 I am here to tell you about a
major faux pas made by MOM.


RECENTLY, Mom was on a major
 merge and purge campaign.  Cleaning and sorting and 
putting things in piles.  She was going from closet to closet 
with plastic bags and boxes and who knows what else.

Well being a curious kitty I meowed hey mom wait 
I want to help....operative word....MEOWED 


Soon it was time for the peeps
to go out to dinner...evidently sometime during the merging and purging I got bored....
 took a nap on the job...in one of the closets....
Exhibit 1
re-enactment
 When I awoke...I was staring at the wrong side of the closet door
the first thing I saw was two big brown eyes staring at me.
I said asked, who the hoot  are you, where am I and what did you do with my Mom. Hoot the Wise Owl said you my friend
are trapped in the closet AND it was your MOM 
who closed the door!!!! You are up the proverbial creek 
with a hole in your canoe..your peeps are GONE

Exhibit 2
Yes this Macrame Owl is on the inside of the closet.
Mom made it way back in the 1970's and cannot part with it.

After 87 hours and 10 seconds my Dad finally heard my weak, faint, pitiful, MEOW...he saved me from a night in the dark
with Hoot.  He apologized profusely and gave me loving...
THEN HE asked HOLLERED TO MOM
DO YOU KNOW WHERE MADI HAS BEEN....Mom knew this was a  trick question so she said....
WHERE....WELL HE TOLD HER AND 
SHE WAS ALL SORRY AND UPSET AND
CALLING HERSELF ALL KINDS OF STUPID.

When I came down stairs the first thing
SHE did was take a picture of me
washing off closet cooties.  She
told Dad I washed for 15 minutes, even 
between my toes.....twice.
Exhibit 3
 taken with the iPad
with no flash because she knew SHE was in big Trouble
SHE asked why I didn't let her know where I was... 
I told her I meowed to her I wanted to help 
But SHE evidently had BEANS in HER ears....
So I gave HER my back of disrespect
while I decide on  just how 
many DEMERITS to give 
MOM HER



SO TODAY I'M ASKING ALL MY 'REAL' FRIENDS JUST HOW MANY DEMERITS AND LASHES WITH WET NOODLES
I SHOULD GIVE TO HER?

Note from Mom HER: MADI SPEAKS THE TRUTH. I have apologized profusely many many many times, FREELY GIVEN UP my chair and given her lots of love. I know she loves closets and am normally very careful about checking them..

TUESDAY TELL US


DO YOU THINK WE HAVE A GHOST?

WHAT IN THE WORLD IS THAT SPOT?

 THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IN THE PICTURES
IS MOM TURNED THE CAMERA just because.
Pictures were taken in sequence nothing
on the couch to cause a glare.

Mom said it looked like my high beams in one big spot!!

MYSTERY DOOR


I'm allowed to wonder freely about the inside of the house; however, there are two doors that are always closed.
Today I'd like to take you on a tour of

 Mystery Door 1
Behind this door lies a feline jungle gym
Short story is our house doesn't have an attic so
several years ago the peeps added a room above our back porch that serves as an attic


It is not air conditioned which is why the door stays closed.
The computer room is on the other side of this door.  Every so
often when it is cooler mom leaves the door open.
I LOVE THIS ROOM
I HAVE A WINDOW PERCH


THERE ARE GOOBS (scientific word meaning a lot)
of things to climb on and sniff
This is me playing Queen of the Sewing Chest
From atop the sewing chest I rediscovered
a little feline gym of course
Mom slow poke did not get a picture

The door marked no kitty zone
leads in to the access to the a crawl space in the roof.
It is also a no human zone, it is blocked off too!!
Fall means I get to rediscover all the nooks and crannies 
of this room.....and my perch also looks out on the bird feeders.
