My Tailio Tragedy

All right, all right. Don't begrudge your King a little hyperbole now.

So last evening, the Human was cooperating with my desire for some fun playtimes with my very favorite Red Birdie wand toy. 

She was dangling and swishing and whipping that thing like nobody's business. That little birdie was dancing, my friends. 

Suddenly, though, that Red Sparrow reared up like Godzilla and whipped itself around, strangling my precious tailio--my tender floofy Tailio, Kitties! I took off like greased lightning, trailing that red snake behind me. The Human was laughing, I tell you, laughing like some kind of heartless maniac while I ran for my life.

Then, as I flashed by for the third or fourth time, she grabbed the stick part and held on and I kept running and that thing pulled my precious tailio right off, I tell you, off. 

Well, almost.

And yeah, sure, it looks all innocent now, posing for its picture, but I will never trust that little $#%$&@ again.


  1. This is not hyperbole, Spitty. Indeed, I'd go so far as to say that 'tragedy' understates the appalling experience you had. And the Human laughed? OFF WITH HER HEAD!

  2. Wow, do you think you will ever recover from this trauma, Spitty?!

  3. What a horrible thing to happen. Would you believe I had the same thing happen this week, only with Stringy? It also got tangled in MY gorgeous tail and I took off with the hounds of hades pursuing me! I almost didn't escape-- and mom flew through the house behind me trying to free me from their clutches! WE need a trip to the pub! It'll be on our Mom's! They should pay (and pay).

  4. It is a terrible thing, Spitty, we agree. But trust us: Since Snapoline has snapped off our various ears and limbs over the years, they will grow back.

  5. You know, as some wise kitty once said, it's all fun and games until the birdie uprising arrives. Yikes!

  6. Not that precious, floofy tailio! How dare that red birdie. That is not a prank but total disregard for a man cat's finer part. Give it a hard chomp and tell it, "so long and good riddance." MM sends some healing kisses for your tailio! XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

  7. Egads, Spitty! Off with it's head, burn it at the stake, bury it alive in the ground!!! How DARE it!?!

  8. You poor guy.....your tailio had some trauma but it appears to have survived the insult and appears to be as floofy as ever HOWEVER I would suggest you keep one eye open if that BURD is that close to you. Never trust a BURD.

    Hugs, Teddy

  9. Spitty, you gotta kill that Red Sparrow.


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