The Tale of Two Pussies on a Snow Day

Ted's $60 bags of food are going to be the death of me.

Don’t judge me.

Sunday night ice storms lead to a Nashville snow day at the beginning of this week. As I rolled over to do a little computing from my bed, a certain pussy had other ideas.


Think you’re using this device? Think again.

When I maneuvered to the kitchen table, my attempts were once again thwarted by my all of a sudden limber cat who pounced over the computer screen onto the keyboard.

What do you think you're doing?

Seriously stopped by an acrobatic feline.

Realizing the computer was off-limits for the time being, I headed to do some laundry. Where my efforts were once again halted by two cats (yep, still have New Cat and yep, he needs a name).

Laundry haters.

Laundry haters one and two.

My sweet hints to move were met with death stares.

If looks could kill

Bitch, please. We’re. Not. Moving.

Out smarting the little fur balls, I opened the door to my patio knowing it would result in immediate retrieval from the laundry devices.

New Cat sounded like his very own herd of elephants as he made a mad dash out onto the porch. And he just as quickly did a 360 degree turn to head back to the warmer climate inside.

Wild cat on the loose.

Fuck this noise. I live in a mini manse now!

Ted was way too cool for school, sauntering outside like he lives among polar bears (even though I could tell by the look on his face he didn’t know what the hell was under his paws, as he’s never walked on snow before).


Stoically parading on unknown territory.

Attempting to jump into his fave chair, Mr. Bear slide off twice (and promptly got pissed at me for laughing in his face) before planting his rear end down on the frozen seat cushion.


A slightly embarrassed, slippery kit cat.

Although his tail wasn’t between his legs after his humiliating run in with a slippery chair, Tedstar retreated inside to lick his wounds so quickly, he was almost a blur of grey matter.



Done with this shit.

Done with this shit.

I thought a steamy bathroom would be the perfect way to warm us up.  Apparently, New Cat had never seen a person in a bathtub before.

Biggest bowl of water ever.

Biggest bowl of water ever.

He walked like a circus act on a tightrope down the edge of the tub, obstructing Teddy from being able to stare into my eyes.



As New Cat planted himself in between the Bear and myself, I heard Ted sigh to himself loudly.


An innocent new kitty…


…only wanted a kiss from yours truly…

A smooch before the plunge

…who got a smooch before plunging into the bath with me.

I’m pretty sure Ted gave our newest mini manse member a hefty shove, causing New Cat to fall into the warm water seven inches below him. And let me tell you, there’s nothing more fun than a screaming, wet pussy in a bathtub.

After I got NC out and dried off with a towel, he retreated to the warm washer to finish drying.

Drying Out.

Wringing the wet out.

And the little bitch we know and love got exactly what he wanted.

His mother, all alone on the couch.

Just what Ted wanted.

Mission accomplished.

If ever you find yourself in my mini manse on a snow day, better watch your back.

Sometimes the claws come out.

    Fun filled day in the mini manse. So how long does a cat have to remain before becoming a common-law pet? LOL. I am thinking you might just be a 2 cat momma now CBXB. And I am still partial to the name Tux (tuxedo). Teddy and Tux. So there ya go. Have a great “Snow Day/Night my friend.

    • Tux is a fabulous suggestion! I’m marking that down, as I think I’ll call on readers to help me name New Cat. And yes, it is official. I’m a two cat mama. Although, I like the idea of being in a common-law relationship with a cat! You never cease to make me chuckle!

  2. Hissy claws and snow days – oh my! SO very happy that New Cat is still in the mini-manse. Have you considered a bond inspired French handle, “Pussy Nouveau” (new pussy).
    Super sorry to hear that the dreaded Polar Vortex delivered a snow day waaaay down south.

  3. I was wondering if you still had the new cat. Good for you! You’re a softie. Let’s not do three though until there’s a man in the house too, otherwise, it’s less funny somehow.

  4. i knew New Cat was going to stay! Ted is so cool! Would love to know what went through his mind when New Cat fell in the tub!

    So cute. My dog broke my laptop being like that. You keep me laughing. 🙂

  6. Bitch. Please. TOO FUNNY. I’m laughing out loud here and hub is saying what’s funny and I say you wouldn’t understand. Hahaha! Might I suggest Princess Rosebud as a name for new cat?????

  7. Too funny, what are you going to cal the new kid on the block? 🙂

    The look those two were giving you as they were laying on the washer and dryer was hysterical!! And… so typical.
    Glad you still have NC, what a cutie!

    • Yes, NC is a sweet little cutie pie. All he wants to do is headbutt me. Seriously all the time. I think Ted has been giving NC tips on how to stare icily into my eyes. And it’s working, obviously, as my laundry is almost near my ceiling now.

    You love that new pussy and will never let him go, admit it!

Holla at me!
