to seclude, seize and hold
and that is exactly what happened to me on Tuesday.  Why? Because the painters had to paint our exterior doors and leave them open until they dried.
I was peacefully napping on on Tuesday when Mom seized gently picked me up to take me to my ' holding cell for the day'.
Notice my look of total dismay when she secluded me the 'puter room, then she recruited  Mr. Steamer to be the door sentry so that I could not pull it open
 Obviously if there are pictures of this Mom was in there with me
but I gave her the one eyed look that says, that DOES NOT MAKE IT OK!!
 She quickly pointed out that I had a litter box, food and water which was supposed to make me happy...but I don't like being put in one room.  I like to roam from room to room each day.
Mom doesn't have a litter box or food up here so I'll bid my time
until I can escape.

 Her idea of food was about 10 pieces of kibble (because I had already had my morning ration of noms)...MOL...I gobbled that right down and will most certainly demand more very soon.
 and told her if she expected me to stay in this room she better provide some colorful and enriching entertainment
 So she immediately showed me her Raspberry Rush piggies

the glitter on her piggies made my eyes hurt so I took myself to the
other side of the room to not sit quietly

Note from Mom:
Madi voiced her 100% disapproval of this situation for most of the day; however, my goal for the day was to keep her safe.  I had not planned to put her in the room quite so early.  However, as soon as she heard the painters arrive she ran under a bed. I had to get her while the gettin' was good. 


  1. Oh my goodness Madi, you are a prisoner in a room in your own home. That just doesn't seem right. We are sure you let your Mom know this was just wrong. If you play your cards right maybe you can get some extra sympathy noms!

  2. Oh Madi, we feel your pain! Almost every time our mum and dad go out, they lock us away in this horrible cage and then take what seems like forever to come back! Sometimes we even worry that have forgotten all about us! But mum says it's to keep us safe as we tend to like to get into things we shouldn't(what's wrong with a little harmless redecorating?). Hopefully you won't have to go through this again anytime soon! BTW...our mum says to tell your mum she loves the nail color she has on her toes!

  3. Madi, I think it's not so bad ! As long mommy is with you : )

  4. Yes, we just had a painter a couple weeks ago. We were sequestered too. I like open doors myself.

    pawhugs, Max

  5. Please forgive your Mom, Madi. She's only keeping you safe because she loves you so!

  6. Oh Madi, my mummy puts me in the bedroom too when she has to do the sweeping and mopping (I like to try and catch the broom and mop!). Rio from Barcelona

  7. Awe.....poor, poor Madi. I am so glad you survived this ordeal though! Lovies to my BFFF, Miss Mindy

  8. Raider wanted to leave a message:
    At least Mom was there to keep you company and you weren't locked up all alone!
    Is that why you typed on her email? Was that a coded message for "Help, I'm being held prisoner!"
    My mom loves the Raspberry Rush tootsies! bol
    BTW, my mom has been AWOL for a few days, so was I glad to see her come back Monday! She needed that doggie facial! tee hee hee
    Your K9 buddy, Raider

  9. Oh Madi, I am sorry you had to endure such hardship ...I would demand extra treats for pain and suffering.

    Your pal, PIp

  10. Mom was just taking care of you Madi. I'm glad you are safe!

  11. Poor Madi :( A Diva held captive in one room all day and not able to roam free through out her palace sad
    I hope you will be able to recover quickly

  12. Some days it's best just to retreat to your safe room....looks like you have it really nice!

  13. had access to da puter all day! Tink of all da online shopping you could of done.

  14. Madi,

    Dat is NO way to treat a DIVA, but your mom was only tryin' to protect you so I guess it was OK, dis time. ;)

    Woofs and Licks,
    Maggie Mae

  15. Madi
    We know that the first order was to make sure you were safe. We know that is Number One with your Mom, and even though you were a prisoner for a day it was all meant to be for your safety. We hope that this will not be repeated or else the entertainment needs to be better!

  16. Poor Madi... are you sequestered????
    I hope you stay better now!

  17. Madi, we hate getting locked up too!! We hope the torture is over now and you are wandering from room to room once again!!

  18. You are totally justified in your indignation! The horror of it all may keep me from a nap! Or may not. MOL! Purrs and headbutts.

  19. Poor Madi, a prisoner in your own home. If we had known, we would have shipped a cake with a file in it to you.

  20. We get it Madi...Closed doors are B-A-D!!!!

    Dory, Jakey & Bilbo

  21. Oh, Madi ... I hear ya! No fun! But I bet you are gonna love your new walls!


Please leave a meow or bark for Madi...her assistant (aka Mom) will respond in a timely fashion. =^..^=
Life is short, spend it with those who make you laugh
