Saturday: Cat's Bill of Rights #9

I have the right to look aloof when scolded for mistaking your toes for one of those pesky phantom creatures that hide beneath the sheets.

  3. Hey Madi, don't humans understand that we are trying to protect them from the phantom creatures under the covers? I really hate it when one of those phantoms nibble their toes and I get blamed for it!! Pesky creature.

  8. Darling Madi. This is Cap'n Ripley's sister, Abby. Pleased to meet you, dear. And I just couldn't agree with you more! I mean, really. Is it OUR fault that their extremities bear such a striking resemblance to rats when beneath the sheets?

    Head bumps,
    Abby

  10. Ouch! You're a toe catcher?!
    I had a cat as a kid, Frisky, who would wait under the bed in ambush, for when I came to make the bed! Grab at my ankles because they must have been "phantom creatures" to him! LOL
    Have a great weekend!

  12. Blanket mice are so elusive! If only we could catch one, just ONCE.
    We'll never stop trying!

  16. Ha ha! Our phantom critters live under the bed, and really like to show themselves when momma is making the bed. Why she yelps every time I catch one is beyond me. I was SUPPOSED to be a mouser cat. Not my fault the humans decided I should be am indoor cat instead.
    Aloof AND indignignant, is why I say!

    Paws and purrs,
    Milo

  17. You know, that's one thing that cats and peis have in common. You won't find either of us slinking around with our tails between our legs. If humans are displeased with me I just look puzzled, like "Whatever could your problem be?". Franklin just seems unaware that yelling means disapproval. We love human affection and love them back, but we're not subservient, now are we?

    lotsa licks, Lola

  18. Oh yeah, Madi...you can't be blamed for attacking those phantom creatures!
