Sweetie Pie Goes Home #Caturday

Sweetie PieSweetie Pie Turner here.

Mom has been gone for two weeks, and you’ll never guess what MomGoth did. She kidnapped me! I wouldn’t have believed it of her, but it’s true. She came to my house, poked me into a carrier, and brought me to her house. I knew she liked me, but I didn’t know she liked me enough to steal me while Mom was away!

The first thing I did was get under the couch so she couldn’t pet me. I flashed my warning signal that this wasn’t over.

Tipper, MomGoth’s cat, kept trying to make friends, but I wasn’t about to have that. I hissed and growled every time he came around. It’s too bad; he seems like a nice cat, but making friends with him would have made MomGoth think I was okay with being abducted. I tested to make sure Tipper wouldn’t strike back. When I saw he wouldn’t, I began patrolling the entire house, hissing and growling every time I saw him, until he had no place he could call his own. It was a shame, but I was fighting for my freedom.

I even took over his place next to MomGoth on the couch. I never sit next to people on the couch, but I forced myself to do it.

Am I getting through to you?

As a last resort, I began using my bed as a litterbox. When MomGoth picked me up to take me to the basement where I knew my real litterbox from home was, I peed all over her! Not very ladylike, I know, but desperate times call for desperate measures. When I say “all over her”, I mean she had to remove all her removable fur and wash it immediately, from her brand-new coat to her stockings.

[No picture. You’re welcome.]

So, at last, after she put new fur on, she took me home. She also took my beds (including the one she washed after I you-know-what), my scratching pad, my litterbox (which I’m now using, since it’s where it belongs), and my food dish.

That’s more like it.

Note from Tipper:


A WRITING PROMPT FOR ANIMALS: Were you ever abducted? What did you do?

    Sorry that didn’t work out as planned. Will there be a second attempt?

      Possibly. I’ll research how to go about it with a difficult cat. She’s had a dog brother and a cat brother, so I expected this to go well. Maybe a spell of being on her own will make her crave more company than my brief visits. Or, you know, not.

        We used to bring our daughter’s cats here when she traveled. Now I go there.

    I’ve done the separate food and box/closed door things and all that, all the vet / expert advice, and it doesn’t always work out. I give it about 3 months because the vet says more than that and it can be trauma. (!) There’ve been more than a few broken hearts. 🙁
    The strangest thing I’ve encountered was that although Casey and Catticus lived with us for 3 years, Papaw took Casey home with him, where she lives happily as spoiled solo kitty <3 When we left Georgia and stayed with them while we house shopped, Casey was fine with Clara and Catticus, since they'd been her adopted babies, but Catticus lost his kitty mind! He acted like Sweetie Pie often. Peed in the dog's crate! Hissed and growled and carried on like a madman. When we moved to this house, he totally changed, completely different personality — he became lovable and friendly to strangers and much more affectionate with us. Weird. They're weird like people. I think Catticus has a fragile male ego and Casey's an extroverted gal.

      I don’t know about the cats, but Charlie and I were traumatized.

    I feel for both Sweetie Pie and Tipper. :/ Maybe once Tipper is older he’ll be more dominant and then she’ll behave better. Good luck. 🙁
