Cathouse

The kitties are in the dog house. At around 3:00 a.m. this morning Dean and I were awakened by the sound of our dressers being completely cleared of whatever was on their surfaces. A moth had gotten into the apartment and both Allison and Wrigley were trying to get at it. All my perfume, lotions and whatever miscellaneous items that shouldn't have been on my dresser in the first place were pushed to the ground as Wrigley slid across the varnished finish. Allison had more of a graceful landing on Dean's dresser but still managed to knock over his Tino Martinez mini bobble head.

Dean knew one of his mini bobble heads was knocked over, but when he went to retrieve it this morning he couldn't find it. He deduced it was Tino but neither of us could find him. Perplexing. The only thin I can think of is that one of the kitties ran off with poor Tino and he could turn up anywhere.

This isn't the first time something like this has happened. One of the kitties knocked over Dean's Yao Ming MacFarlane figurine. We found Yao later that evening in the litter box.

Dean's got good taste in bobbleheads. I've always liked Tino Martinez — and this is a Red Sox fan talking.

I'm glad, you needed it!

He has pretty good taste in bobble heads. He's especially excited about the bobble hotdog the Brewers are giving away. He'll be on ebay for that one.

HEhehehehe!! I read this after talking to you on the phone where I was in the way of the stampede!!

I say we take wiggly, ally, the bean, lok, the bug and the most beautiful stripy cat with eyes to big for her head and place them all in your bathroom and shut the door. When it gets quiet we see what is left. hehehehe

Nat - Guinea pigs. Cute, cuddly, and never knock stuff off your dresser. Just a thought.

Also, I'd be curious to see what the hot guy says if you DID call him up with, "Hi, I'm a retard, and I have the hots for you." Points for originality? Perhaps.

Found my roommate's kitty snoozing on my pillow last evening. There are 6 to choose from, invariably he picks the one I actually rest my head on. Commence the pillowcase change and benadryl.

Good times.

Tino is overrated. And he sucked for the Cardinals. I hope you find that one in the litter box.

Wrigley is aptly named it seems, being a good slider and all. But come on, you can't blame the poor innocent little kitties for chasing a moth. That's part of the package!

rgfl-
It's funny you should say that because I actually locked Wrigley in the bathroom in the middle of the night that same night to keep him under control. He loves to play in the bathtub so he was occupied and not too upset.

h4t-
It's funny how cats know to do that. He'll break you eventually and you'll love them even more than rodents.

lefty-
Sorry, too late. We found him under the bed caught in some dust bunnies.

Scott-
I know. It usually makes for great entertainment when I'm not trying to sleep. I should just be happy they protected from the big bad moth!
