The Prodigal Polar Bear #Caturday

Sweetie Pie Turner here. My mom is MomGoth’s mom, too, but I call Marian, who is my sister, MomGoth because she helps take care of me.

We had such an exciting week!

Some of it was not very good excitement. A water main broke, so we had a boil water advisory. That meant MomGoth had to boil water to mix Mom’s electrolyte water and to put in Mom’s water delivery bag on her feeding pump. She keeps my water dish nice and full, so that was all right. If I had needed water, then she would have boiled it.

And our refrigerator stopped working! MomGoth didn’t know it, because Mom doesn’t eat food food, just canned formula. The motor was still running, but a friend opened it and found out it wasn’t cold. And it smelled BAD! MomGoth threw everything inside it away and cleaned it out with baking soda. She called Sears and they said they’d schedule a repair appointment in two weeks. MomGoth laughed and laughed, thanked them anyway, and hung up. Then she got the name of a local guy and he came right out and fixed it.

Before he came, MomGoth and Charlie pulled the refrigerator out and cleaned under it and behind it, and look who they found! I used to baptize him in my water dish every day! He’s been under the refrigerator, herding pigs by the smell of him. MomGoth washed him, once the water boil advisory was lifted.

PPBThe thing sticking up on his back is a Velcro(tm) tab. He and another one stick onto a bigger one. Now the family can be together again!

But the most exciting thing was three cousins who came to visit. Cousins of Mom and MomGoth, I mean, not of me. I don’t like company.

Company? Seriously? Here they come!

Company? Seriously? Here they come!

I’ll just go hide back there in the bedroom, ‘k?

SweetiePie HidesThey had a great time! I could hear them yakking and laughing all the way back where I was lurking.

They forgot to get Charlie to take a picture of them all together, so they took two pictures and MomGoth put them together in the GIMP.

They left, so I came back out.

Are they gone yet? YES!

Are they gone yet? YES!

MomGoth says I’m a Calico Recluse. I’m just shy and retiring. But the cousins sure sounded like they were having fun. Maybe next time they visit, I’ll come out and see them. I know they made Mom and MomGoth really happy.

And MomGoth finding my prodigal polar bear made me happy. So it was a good week, all in all.

    Sometimes, I think I’d prefer crowds of animals to crowds of people. Good news on the polar bear – I’m sure Sweetie Pie is happy to have him back.

      Sweetie Pie seems to be out of the baptism business, but she was happy to see her old convert after his sojurn in the wilderness. 🙂 As for animals v people, it depends on the animals and it depends on how hungry they are.

    You are so lucky Sweetie Pie! The only thing I’ve ever found under the fridge was an old mouse that one of the kids brought in…and released…I’m sad to say it did smell though. Fridges really should be designed better. 🙁

      There was a mouse under there, too. Fortunately, it was a stuffed felt one, not a formerly live one. Fridges need room underneath so the feet can be adjusted to make them level, and for air circulation. So I vote for them to sit higher off the ground, so anything that goes under can be easily retrieved.

    Looks like a bunch of happy people at Sweetie Pie’s last week!

    BTW, it looks like baptismal visitations have made for a very clean little bear, considering how long he was under the fridge!

      Oh, when we got him out from under the fridge, I anointed his head with dish washing liquid and soaped him up pretty good. Then I rinsed him through and through, wrung him as dry as possible, and put him in durance vile (aka the dish rack) until he dried out. He’s ready for polite society again.

      And we had SUCH a good visit with the cousins!
