Wut makes you a Scardey Cat?


Hello Tabbies!  Sparky Spitfire here! Are you ready for the spoooooky times? Cuz they is here, you know. Long shadows. Short days. Full moons. Creaky bumpy noises in teh darks of teh nights.  All that great stuffs.

So I asks you - Wut makes you a Scardey Cat?

For me, the answer is nuthin.  But of course, you knew that.  We Ninja Kittehs of teh Night don't has times to be scared. it interferes with the ability to teleport and whatnot.  

Now, my sistah, Upstairs Suzy, on teh other hand, has, shall we say, issues. 

Suzy has been here a lot longer than me, so she must have a good reason to not ever EVER come downstairs, but I has looked and looked for these monsters and small childrens she is so worried about, and I can't find any. 

The peeps has to promise her it's safe so she'll come down to eat.  And when she does, there is always something that makes her shoot straight up in the air, mid gulp of cat food, and race back up stairs.  Like, say:

  • cabinet door opening
  • cabinet door closing
  • yaptastic dog next door
  • newspaper crinkling
  • monster truck rally ads and right-wing talk radio

    Like, the house is not vacuumed simply cuz Mrs. Whatsername is lazy.  That kind of thing sends Suzy into catatonic shock for days.  

    But in general, as long as the house is quiet and no one ever drops a fork or makes popcorn, Suzy is pretty happy.  She is quite fine with her Under Teh Bed space that she occupies 23 hours of teh day.  No shame in that.

    And that's all for our Scaredy Cat Tails, so now it's your turn to....no. 
    Wait.  
    Mrs. Whatsername is giving me that look.  

    No! No! I is not scared of nuthin, I tells you! No! Don't post that picture! NOOOOOOOOOES...



    Oh! So awful, the Shut Up Box of Trapped Kittens!  gasp! can't BrEEEEEEthes...tiny, enclosed spaces...no exit...pant...pant...no! no moar!!!  

    Oh, Mrs. Whatsername, you are a horrid, horrid woman.


    Okay, yes.  I hates to be locked up.  I freaks out when I am trapped.  Are you happy now?  Like, I can't even watch Maru and his boxes.  That cat is a Freak - or an Evil Genius.  But I is NOT scared o' him.  No. No! Not the Mask, Maru! Don't put the mask on you head, no! Don't Do eeet!

    Oh, Cod. Now I has to climb a tree to clear my head.  In meantimes,

    What makes you a Scardey Cat?

    Everything scares our Derry-bear. The mom gets a jug of water? Derry runs. The mom picks up a mat to shake out? Derry runs. The mom has laundry and/or bedding in her arm? Derry runs. And heaven help us when there's a knock at the door the doorbell rings!

    Now, Nicki's another matter. About the only thing that scares him is the PTU, the taxi ride and the vet/vet clinic!

    BTW, our mom was supposed to schedule a post for this....We'll see if we can get to do something, but it's tough to motivate her, especially on the weekend.

    Moosey thinks the doorbell or a knock on the door is scary. And strangers in the house, too. His brother Sammy isn't scared of much at all. :)
