Tortie Telling on Tuesday!

It's Tortie Tuesday today and I'm going to tell you something that happened at our house last Saturday while Mommy was over an hour away from home at a craft show. We're all scared to tell Mommy about this story so like the photo we posted of her, keep this a secret too!

First let me give you a little background on our family dynamics so the importance/stress of this event makes more sense. I am a Daddy's girl and have him wrapped around my paw. Sadie is both a Momma's girl and a Daddy's girl. Angel has everyone in the house wrapped around her paw but she's really a Momma's girl - BIG time spoilt by Mommy in other words.

Now I'll set the scene. I was downstairs in the ManCave with Daddy sleeping watching football.
We then hear the neighbor call out "Guess I can just walk on in". Daddy hadn't pulled the front door all the way closed and it was wide open for we don't know how long.
Instant panic set in and Daddy said some HBO words. He ran upstairs and found Sadie in our entry way with the neighbor and then the neighbor told him he saw a white cat with brown on it at the bottom of our stairs outside and it ran into the bushes when he walked up. Daddy started yelling for us and although I didn't move, he knew where I was sleeping watching TV wishing he'd quit yelling so much.
He got out Angel's ball with bell toy and also the Temptations bag and shook them like crazy but Angel wouldn't come (she always comes for Mommy). He told the neighbor Angel was Mommy's cat and he'd be in big trouble if he lost her cat. So Daddy and the neighbor were outside looking everywhere for Angel. After awhile he came back inside and looked for her but still no Angel so he went back outside and searched every yard while shaking her ball and the treat bag but didn't find her. (Are you sensing his panic?) He came back in and looked all over the house and was just about to go back outside again when she came up the stairs with her "you lookin' for me?" look.
Daddy told the neighbor he found Angel since he was still outside looking for her. Then he gave Angel nearly an entire bag of Temptations! She had so many she didn't even eat them all (can you imagine too many Temptations?) and Mommy did notice the pile of treats on her nightstand but she doesn't know the reason for so many treats - and we don't want her to know the reason because she'd be upset plus she'd go looking for that other white cat!

I'm glad my little sisfur isn't lost and I'm going to hold on to her so she can't go missing again!
Keep your furbabies close!
Hope you have a great Tortie Tuesday!
Isabella

Oh my Cod! We're not sure if we would tell our mom something like this either. That was so close! You girls are the cleverest for not running outside! You now where the good life is, don't you.
Phew, we could really, really sense the man's panic.

She was very worried.

I can see how your daddy would have been in a panic. Glad your sisfur is safe and sound.

My Duke likes to hang out with his daddy in the man cave too. They of course are always watching (not napping) tv

Lin said...

Whew! That was close! Daddy was gonna be in BIG trouble!!

Don't let it slip to your Mom! One time The Ball Guy let Samson out into the hall of the apartment building and forgot about him for 15 minutes! Our Mom never lets him forget that..

Thankfully your sister is okay, Isabella...phew!

That is a furry scary story. We can understand how scared your Daddy must have been. We're glad Angle was safe. Did you ever find out where she was?

That was a close call. I had a kitty missing for a week one time. Found her at the back door one morning...very hungry after her adventure.

Oh, how scary for Angel!! One time my Mommy thought I was lost outside and she went totally crazy! I'm so happy all turned out OK! Hold on tight to her Isabella! Happy Tortie Tuesday! Love, Moon

What a great story. Doors being left open always happens at my house when my In-Laws come to visit. I go into panic when I find doors open. I've been lucky to not loose anybody.

Awww poor Angel and all of the residents! I'm glad she is back safe and sound and with Isabella to hug her.
We had a stray puppy on our doorstep last Friday and I know how scary it can be to be lost. Fortunately he is now with his daddy, but we were worried too!
I know outside looks fun Angel, but please, please stay inside from now on, we love you just were you are!!

The Island Cats said...

Oh we're glad Angel wasn't lost! That musta been scary for your dad...and don't worry...we won't tell your mom...hehehe!

Daddy - Did your life flash before your eyes? I have been around Sharla when a pet is missing and it's not a pretty sight. I'm so glad everything turned out OK - at least for Daddy's sake. I bet he never does that again. Don't tell Mommy about this.

I'm glad she's not lost! And that last picture is adorable!

Isabella, that last photo is priceless - such sisterly love. Now quick - delete this post before Mom sees it, she would be so upset if she knew.

Woos, the OP Pack
