Tortie Tuesday

It's Tortie Tuesday and I needed to use all of my Tortitude today. You see, the big red box with wheels came out and that usually means someone thinks they're going somewhere. I found out that Mommy thinks she's going to Kansas today to visit our Grandpa. Well, I'll just sit my Tortie tush on the big red box and give an adorable look. There's no way she would leave now!
Hmmm. That didn't work. She's still getting things together to put in this big red box. I need to figure out something else...
Okay, even though it's Tortie Tuesday, I pulled in non-Tortie reinforcement and told her to try to give an adorable face like mine...
That didn't work either. This may take awhile so I might as well get comfy.
If my Tortie charm doesn't work and Mommy does go to Kansas, we'll just enjoy our time with Daddy - I have him wrapped around my paw! We'll still be posting and reading your blogs and will comment when we can.

Hope you have a Happy Tortie Tuesday!
Isabella

What if you sit on the suitcase and NEVER EVER leave? How can your human go away then?

(Nah, it didn't work for Binga either. And she was sitting IN, not ON it!)

Duni said...

Oh no! Not the box with wheels :(
You two sure look adorable and you gave it your best shot, but it looks like Mommy is leaving anyway. Hope she has a safe trip and I bet you'll extra treats when she gets back!

Keiko said...

Oh... we always sit INSIDE but it never works for us either...
You are both super super cute!!

Sorry Isabella. But sometimes Mommy has to do those things. I am sure she won't be gone long. And we know Daddy will spoil you while she is gone.We'll have to make sure he gets some extra treats.
Hope Mommy has a good trip.

Kas said...

Wow, way to go getting the help with the adorable look.

Daisy said...

I am crossing my paws that your plan will work!

The Monkeys said...

If those tactics don't work, nothing will! We hope that your Mom has a great time (if she can manage to leave) and you girls all have fun with your daddy!

Grace said...

Thanks, that was my first giggle of the day - and such great photos of y'all too!

Faith said...

You girls are too cute! If mommy manages to go, I hope she has a wonderful trip!

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

I can't believe yoor mom could resist yoor cuteness ~ and Angel's too!

Anny said...

You could get your other sisfur Sadie to get on the bag too... then it WILL be hard for your momma to pack :) and then... she won't/can't go to Kansas. Great idea rite?

me.. i just stick with them bags wherever they go... just in case they forget to take me along.

woofs & licks,
Dommy

Erika said...

Nice try, Isabella! I am sure sorry to hear that your Mommy had to leave and take the box on wheels but hopefully she will back real soon.

How could your mommy turn down two adorable faces like that!
Tell her to have a great time :)

tahtimbo said...

That photo with Isabella and Angel is priceless! How could anyone resist those faces?
Have a great trip!

Simba said...

The third picture is just priceless. I think you kitties will do just fine with daddy. Mommy, have a god, safe trip.

Katnip Lounge said...

Our Mommy would obey your every wish...you are too cute to resist!

We hope your Dad spoils you rotten. We're a little bit worried, though...will Sadie remember to keep your Dad on the leash?

Admiral Hestorb said...

OH! Katnip Lounge Mama Kat is right! Sadie needs a reminder to keep Daddy on a leash when they go out. Remember what happened that time when she didn't. You have to keep your beans on a leash at all times.

You lady cats are gorgeous and your faces say " Stay home, mommy!" I think it'll work. I hope.

Mommy has a box on wheels and I know what that means. I hope it stays under the bed!!!

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

She'll be bakhk

AND probably bring woo pressies!

I'm sure woo khan wrap your paws around your daddy!

BTW, my word is WRIST

PeeEssWoo: Hi Sadie! I think woo should be in charge!

Reeni said...

Your Mommy is going to miss you just as much as you miss her! I hope she has a safe and fun trip! Love, Moon

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Hi Isabella! We can't believe the cute looks didn't work! We bet you will have a lot of fun with your dad though - dads are always great fun! And we hope your mom has a good time on her trip!

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Woo Hoo - tell her to wave to us as she flies by - hope our good weather holds out for her.

We know Daddy will take great care of all of you, and Sadie, we hope you get some extra treats.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Ann said...

Good idea with the team work strategy. Now go get Sadie in on it. She's heavier than you girls and that might just stop your mom. How could she leave with all 3 of you looking sad on the big red box.

Julie Magers Soulen said...

Have a good trip to Kansas. BTW, Angel and Isabella look adorable together on your suitcase!

Cheers!

Way to go Isabella! :)
Hope your Mom has a nice trip to Kansas!

Au and Target said...

She left after THOSE faces? Hardhearted mummy indeed. Give her the Tayul of displeasure when she returns.

Stacy Hurt said...

that photo of the two of you totally made me MOL!!! I say both of you get in the box; then there's no room left for stuffs so she ain't going anywheres then!

that's hilarious! Oh well, at least there's daddy.... {:-D

Cat Lady Diary said...

I can't believe the two of you did not convince her to put that thing back in the closet!!

The Island Cats said...

OMC! We can't believe that your two cute faces couldn't stop her from going!! Well, we hope your daddy is good to all of you and your mom hurries home soon!

Catherine said...

Hmmmm... perhaps Sadie needs to get in on the act. Between the 3 of you certainly you can keep that suitcase and mommy at home!!!

Good luck!
