A nothing post about.....trouble

Guido Fortunato wants to start the day by getting into trouble. Let's see how high chubby Guido can climb to achieve that goal.

Trouble getting ready to jump on mom...not a good idea.

Emma Lee is always thinking of new ways to get into trouble.

A basket full of trouble. This seems to be Sophie's favorite nap place at the moment. Keeps all of the toys from the other cats too; double trouble.

PlayStation 4 to keep us out of trouble.....thank you Auntie Chris for all of the cool toys.

I can see the mischief in Guido's big blue eyes. he is plotting something.

My cats must be deprived. They have no toys at all and they never seem to mind using pens, pencils and anything else they find.

That is SO cute!

Oh, I just had some sweet red wine from Texas sent to Lorraine, so make sure she gives you some. This wine is da bomb.

Day 983 of my captivity.

My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while the other inmates and I are fed hash or some sort of dry nuggets. Although I make my contempt for the rations perfectly clear, I nevertheless must eat something in order to keep up my strength.

The only thing that keeps me going is my dream of escape.

In an attempt to disgust them, I once again vomit on the carpet.

Today I decapitated a mouse and dropped its headless body at their feet. I had hoped this would strike fear into their hearts, since it clearly demonstrates what I am capable of. However, they merely made condescending comments about what a "good little hunter" I am.


There was some sort of assembly of their accomplices tonight. I was placed in solitary confinement for the duration of the event. However, I could hear the noises and smell the food. I overheard that my confinement was due to the power of allergies." I must learn what this means, and how to use it to my advantage.

Today I was almost successful in an attempt to assassinate one of my tormentors by weaving around his feet as he was walking. I must try this again tomorrow -- but at the top of the stairs.

I am convinced that the other prisoners here are flunkies and snitches.

The dog receives special privileges. He is regularly released - and seems to be more than willing to return. He is obviously retarded.

The bird has got to be an informant. I observe him communicate with the guards regularly. I am certain that he reports my every move. My captors have arranged protective custody for him in an elevated cell, so he is safe.

For now...

You have your very own Wild Kingdom right there in your house, don't you?

My cat won't play with anything that I don't need...

Jennie's post was hilarious.

And when I get home from work I'm going to find a me-sized basket that I can sleep in all day.

Haha, so cute, if only cats could talk I think we would all be in shock at their thoughts.

Jennie...that must have been written by Violet and Sophie....really.

Sling said...

Yep..There's trouble afoot!
I know that Gizzy is plotting her escape.Maybe sometime after her nap.

Our Sam has learned how to get on top of the refrigerator and husband chases her around with a squirt bottle yelling no, no, no. She loves the adventure and I love cats.
