Todd and Creature are sooooo in the DOG HOUSE!

Yes, it's another cat post - AND IT'S AN ANGRY CAT POST!



I am the angry elf.

I realize that after this post I may lose both of my readers - but please find it in your hearts to allow me to rant about the conspiracy that has been brewing, BEHIND MY BACK, in the walls of my own home.

First, behold the cutest cat in the world. Surely there has never been a more lovable feline.



Even the biggest cat hater EVER has to admit that he is downright adorable.



For years I have lovingly cared for this cat. He adores me. He follows me everywhere I go. We have an understanding. When I come home, I call for my cat. I hear him jump off of my bed and he runs down the stairs. He rubs against me and purrs. He loves his mommy. (Yes, I just said that. Please don't mock me.)

But he has betrayed me.

Because this guy bought catnip.

Oh, he may look sweet. Handsome. Innocent. But don't let that cute face fool you. He has beguiled my cat into thinking that HE is the cat's meow.

Todd has used this past weekend to his advantage and has gained major brownie points with my cat. He has spent the weekend feeding him catnip drugs. Today he came home before me and laced Creature's cat food with it.

HOW CAN I COMPETE WITH THAT?

Now, when I come home - he doesn't come running. When Todd calls him - Creature scampers to his new master. He stares at Todd with eyes full of anticipation for the never-ending catnip.

I just want you to know that I am not happy about this.

There is no point to this post. There is no moral. There is no ending question in an effort to get comments. This is it.

I am an angry elf.

Sorry, angry elf! Those dang cats are certainly not known for their loyalty. Oh, and if I lived in a home that didn't have people with cat allergies, I would so get a black cat just like that one! Awesome!

Oh I am so sorry Red. Your husband is a animal drug dealer. The poor putty tat. Let us know and we will pitch in for cat rehab. He still loves his mommy. Todd, do you need an evaluation?

All I can say is....

TRAITORS!!!!!!!!!!!

Frumpy Luv said...

Traitors - both of them!!!!! And darnnit, I am just doing the happy dance thinking of meeting Todd, errrr, you, this weekend! =) ha ha

what an absolutely hysterical post. Oh, I mean, I DO feel your pain, but how easily these creatures turn on us!! My cat lurks in the bushes and greets me when I pull up to the house. My husband brings home leftover food from his work to feed the animals. They have nothing to do with me when "daddy" gets home. No competition there! And BTW, my cat is my baby too!

Hi! I came over from Frumpy. I am soooo NOT a cat person, but I have to admit that your cats are pretty cute.
We can't have any pets because my husband is massively allergic.
Even so, I'd probably get a dog, and make him stay outside.
And that's just mean in the winter, so we opt out of pets.
Anyway, I like your blog.
I'll be back!

Which is why I'm a dog person. They can't be bought.

I am sure you will come up with some way to buy back her love.

I'm jealous you'll be meeting Frumpy.

You're bringing Todd this weekend? Kewl. I told Jefe he had to stay home. No boys allowed.

I have to admit 2 things: Your cats are super cute. I almost want to pet them. Yes. I did say almost. This is my second confession: I hate cats. But yours are cute.

Sorry they abandoned you. That's a giant bummer.

Kudos to Todd on tipping the balance of power in the Watson household even if he had to drug your cat to do it. Maybe you will have to change the air-filter on the HVAC this time around. OK, maybe not. Maybe he's just trying to remind you that he's the man.

fe2o3, Thanks for reminding me of the filter. With this darn cat laying in front of the cold air return I should check the filter daily.

I just signed up to follow your blog I love it :)

Michelle said...

Ha! I watched the Video from Elf and seriously LMAO. Love that scene. Anyway, you should really turn this against Todd. Maybe you could bribe the kids to favor you over him? I mean really. That's low, taking your poor kitty away with some lousy catnip. Seek revenge. ;)

Take the kids away? (let's see, all are teenagers...Hmmmm.... not a bad idea) Oh please, whatever you do, don't take the kids.
