did she have to take US? Well she DID take us against our wishes.She let us out in a strange room we'd never seen before. I spent the night guarding the food supply.
Well someone has to do it, since Paprika was cowering in the bathtub in her carrier.
After a while I tried to go under the bed but there was NO "under the bed" being as how something called a "platform" was there instead. UNFAIR TO CATS!
|I thought I could get under the bed this way but I could only get this far. Unfair!
Finally I had my chance. The human LEFT the motel room. Did you hear that? She left us ALONE in that weird room. While Paprika continued to "cower in corners" I saw my chance to ES-CAPE!
When my human returned to the motel room an hour later, SHE'D LEFT TWO CATS BEHIND BUT FOUND ONLY ONE CAT when she returned. I had disappeared ENTIRELY.
Mom Carol was hysterical that only one cat was there when she had left two cats. She called and called me but Paprika kept coming up to her. I was nowhere to be found. She looked 10 times all over the bathroom, opened up all the drawers repeatedly, looked behind the fridge. NOTHING.
She was sure someone had seen me, noticed my vibrant colors and STOLEN ME!
Finally as she stood there, distraught, I MADE MY MOVE. The drawer beside her moved slightly by itself. then it moved again. She gasped, wondering if the room was haunted and looked for the 9th time into the empty drawer. First she saw nothing. THEN she saw the corner of my ear--BEHIND the drawer. HOPE sprung in her heart. Soon she peered over the top & saw ME squeezed in the tiny space behind the
drawer. (and I'm a big cat.) She gasped and tried to pull out the drawer. It wouldn't budge. Then she tried to pull ME out. I maneuuvered mightily and finally I managed to struggle out of that tiny space my fur flying all over the room
Just as I wanted.
The moral of this story: If your human does something you don't like, make sure to HIDE so that she or he has some time to appreciate you by your sheer absence! All cats should be smart like me.
Needless to say we were soon sprung free back home. My human was nicer to me than usual afterwards, and gave me and Paprika salmon for breakfast! No less than we deserved but I should have had the salmon all to myself.
My human has decided to join The Cat On My Head's Sunday blog hop hoping someone will commiserate with her. Don't listen to her! It's ME who deserves your good wishes.
