So this post was going to be an update on my cats because I haven’t written anything about them in years but I didn’t feel right considering what happened on Monday. I don’t know that I have ever posted about my grandparents cat name Vinnie on here but he was another black & white kitty like my Alley Cat is. He was older than she is but he has had a tough life as well. He was shot at one point and has been kicked & stomped on among other things.
Anyway we had to put him down on Monday night and even though he wasn’t my cat I still did love him. I grew up with him so it was hard to put him down. Because of that I don’t feel up to writing a update on my cats right now. Alley does have some health problems going on so I will write the update soon but right now just didn’t seem like the right time. Instead I am going to post a few pictures of him and leave it at the for this week. I also have a video of him that I am going to post as well.
Father’s Day started out like any other Sunday at our house. I was woken up at about 6:50 or so by my grandparents cat which as I look back on it now should have been my first clue that something wasn’t right.
Anyway back to my story. I was looking through the Target ad and saw that they had Dr. Pepper on sale so I decided I was going to run over to Target and then come back and work on designs. As I was getting dressed I heard what sounded like finger nails on the wall under my bed. The first time I heard it I didn’t think anything of it but when I heard it again I knew that there was something alive under my bed and it wasn’t one of my cats.
I finished getting dressed and then went and told my grandma that I thought there was a mouse or even a bird under my bed. She came down to my room and started looking under my bed. I ran to get a flash light and once she turned it on and looked under the bed she saw what was making the noise.
There was a BABY BIRD under my bed and it was very much alive. Needless to say this immediately freaked me out. I went and got my grandpa and we started to chase the bird around my room and into my grandparent’s room for the next hour.
Needless to say when we finally caught it my whole room was torn apart and a total mess. My grandma and I then spent rest of the day cleaning my room and doing laundry since my entire bed had to be moved while we were trying to catch the bird.
Let’s just say I have never had an issue with birds before but now I find them totally creepy and I want nothing to do with them. I also am going to be sleeping with my door closed because I can’t handle any more critters getting brought into my room! Oh and it was my grandparents cat Vinnie that brought the bird in because my cats are terrified of birds.
I hope your Father’s Day was tons better than mine!
I haven’t written about my kids in awhile so I figure you might like to hear the latest thing that has happened to the baby of the group Sylvia. If you have followed for awhile you know I have 2 cats Elinore or Alley Cat and Sylvia. My grandparents also have a cat named Vinnie that has to be around 15 years old. I recently received an awesome product to review on my blog (that review will be up in the next few days). They packed the box with paper so that it wouldn’t shift while it was being shipped. Now my two cats are easily scared and my family has been known to torment them from time to time because of how they act. My grandparents cat has always loved paper. So he was playing in the paper and is actually still sleeping on the paper because every time we try and clean it up he gets upset that we get rid of it. Anyway Vinnie decided that he was going to hide in the paper and jump out at Elinore. Now of course she took of running both times he did it which gave me the great idea of scaring the girls myself. Let me just say Sylvia ran into the metal railing as she was trying to get away and go hide in the basement.
She finally at one point decided that it was safe to come up so she came into my room and I was taking her to eat because she hadn’t eaten because I had scared her. My brother hears me coming down the hall holding her and he scared her again. I think she would have been okay if she had only been scared the 2 times but then the next morning Vinnie is hiding in the paper again and scares poor Sylvia for the 3rd time.
Now my poor cat is having a hard time even functioning in the house. I am sure part of it is because the paper is still in the living room because my grandma refuses to throw it out because Vinnie is still sleeping in it. My hope is that after Christmas when the paper is gone and things are back to normal that she won’t be as scared as she is now.
***I know I shouldn’t have done it at all but it was funny. I did get pissed when my brother did it the second time but there was nothing I could do since I had no idea he was going to do it until I walked past the paper and him. If I had know I wouldn’t have walked down the hallway with her.
