Sunday Selfie: This Is My Life Now

Tomorrow, the Garage Trolls return, the Human returns to the daily grind, and I will be left to my own devices.
Plus, all my favorite sleeping places are covered with dishtowels now, so the Human can better track "flea activity." I feel like I'm in a Monty Python skit. Next thing I know, she'll have me wearing a bell. So humiliating.


  1. No no no - bells are not on the agenda as there are no cute things to kill. Only fleas, which surely by now have been vanquished. We send purrs - loud ones - but think they will not suffice for blocking out the renovating trolls.

  2. Geez, you are NOT having a brilliant life at the moment, Spitty! I don't think you'll have to wear bells though - that's more of an outdoor cat thing.

  3. Spitty - I can understand why you're feeling such despair. It is a challenging situation. Several thoughts that might help cheer you up a little: (i) the garage trolls aren't forever. My suggestion is that you milk the situation for all its worth in terms of extra treats and play time, but know that it's a temporary thing and they will go eventually (ii) the Human's service was not very good while she was on vacation. It seemed that she was always popping out somewhere, not bringing home gifts for you and generally only bothering to provide support services when she felt like it. Looked at this way, you aren't going to be materially worse off. Indeed, her return to the Education Factory is another opportunity to milk treats - make her feel really rotten each day when she comes home. I think it's very likely to work! and (iii) there's no prospect of a bell. None. At. All. Your subjects simply would not tolerate such treatment and would storm the battlements to scratch and bite and claw the Human into submission. Please rest easy on this score.

    I hope this is of some help.

  4. Spitty...thanks for keeping me company these past three days. I know that getting away from construction was a motivating factor but...a girl takes what she can get, right?

  5. Oh Spitty Darling!
    They is horrible, disgusting, nasty, reprehensible little bloodsuckers!!!
    Does the towels do anything at all?
    Mes used to hates it when Mommy would bomb our place and makes mes stay at my Aunt Laurie's house! But it worked and a weekend at spa (my Auntie's) was always fun. She is a sucker for giving mes treats...mes will has to tell Marvelous that!!!
    Speaking of Marvelous...he arrives around noon today. Hes exausted from the travelling, but mes hoping to catch a photo or 2 to post.
    Many kisses Spitty
    Your Nellie Bellie

  6. Flea activity? How dare the lowly fleas infest the King?! This is just UNACCEPTABLE!

    Hugs, Teddy

  7. Where are those fleas coming from? Bet'cha the human brings them in on her shoes!! Hop over to my side of the bay and be flea free

  8. Darn em those fleas! They are the ultimate pests, aren't they Spitty! They like our climate in O-R-E-gon, too. Right now the house is flea free, but don't know for how long. I think the D-O-G is the culprit at my house. Tee hee hee! -Valentine (& Mom) of Noir Kitty Mews

  9. Oh woe, Spitty! Fleas and trolls...and a disappearing hoomin! Poor Spitty!

  10. I'd knock those towels off while she's gone.

  11. Yeah, just pull 'em off. That will teach her.

    Ha ha ha ha, teach her!

  12. Aw, man! Those fleas just suck. Literally.


Leave me a meow or a hiss; I don't mind a hiss or two. . . or even a bitey.
