Hi everybody! It's Furby. I want to tell everyone a BIG secret. Sometimes I'm not as sweet as I look. Mama calls me a "handful." Is that bad? Let me tell you all what I did this week and you decide and see if you can top my week.
On Monday I was playing hockey. Yes, I have toys but I get bored or something looks fun to bat around and I don't think. So I played hockey on the bar Monday morning while Laura was washing dishes. She had her cell phone on the counter. No I didn't knock it into the dish water so don't even say it. I knocked it into the big dogs water bowl on the floor.
I've never seen Laura's face turn that color before. Uck-oh. Anyway, Laura put the phone in a container with rice and it started working again Wednesday. Laura should THANK me because mama ordered her another cell phone before her old one dried out. Thanks to ME Laura has 2 phones now. Yea Furby!
On Tuesday Laura made me cornbread and soup. I LOVE soup, especially tomatoes. So I got on mamas plate to help her out and the next thing I knew there was butter on my tail. That night ended badly. I ended up covered in butter by trying to lick it off. That's when Laura decided to give me a bath. I really don't mind a bath. I'm a good kitty and will take medicine or let Laura clean my ears or anything.
I'm glad mama was home. Laura was going to give me a bath using the DOG shampoo. Mama told her not to if it had pyrethrins in it.. I'm SO glad mama is smart. She knew the shampoo could have hurt me because she's read up a lot on cats.Here's some links to other things that are bad for cats: Plants Poisonous to Cats, Cat Poison, Pain Relief Medicine (without care).
I got a good old Dawn dish detergent bath. That's what they use for critters in the wild when they get yucky from oil spills. It didn't take much and I felt so good after my bath I went to sleep. If its good enough for penguins its good enough for me.
Wednesday didn't go any better. I jumped on the computer and broke the "shift key." Then I jumped on the stove and turned on a burner. Do you think the excuse "I want to learn to cook" would help? Some days I'm not too smart.
Thursday was great and nothing bad happened. Mama made some pictures and MOO-vies of me. One of them is on my fan page. of me and Laura playing tug-of-war. This is the way I steal food off a plate too. I just grab it and run! Mama says if I keep trying that with her food she's gonna put me in my cat house and feed me there. Wouldn't that be great! I sleep in there so it would be like breakfast in bed. Unless she locks me in my house. That would be like - JAIL.
Friday wasn't any better. My favorite place to look outside is sitting in the window on top of the air conditioner. I was sitting on the air conditioner and it attacked me! It growled and made a horrible noise at me and blew out cold air. I jumped off and turned mamas drink over (note from Joyce-it had a lid) and got away before something bad happened. How embarrassing! Mama laughed at me!
Did any of you have a bad week? Mama did. She can't get one of my MOO-vies to upload and her computer quit working last night. So far it's OK today. It's a good MOO-vie. I'm washing up in it and you can see my beautiful toes. I wash between my toes and you can see my claws and everything. I'll let everyone know when it's ready to watch.
Please tell me if your kitty ever did anything bad. That way I won't be alone.
If it's funny enough I may try it out on mama.
