A Tabby's Tale of Terror

The weekend before the mom went away, the PTU came out!  We noticed the top was open so Mica Minnie Moo and I rubbed against it until it shut.  Every kitty scattered, foiling the mom's nefarious plan to stuff one of us in it and whisk that poor soul away for torture.  The questions were, who?  And what?

Oh, no!

The mom, thinking she was nonchalant, calmly looked through the house for her victim.  5, 15, 20 minutes went by and she started making comments about no one would guess any kitties lived here. Then she got mean.  She started poking the broom handle into dark closet corners until a corner hissed.  She had found her victim.  Yup, it was Carl.

This is so not right!

A short drive later, he was at Julie's beauty parlor.  After a couple baths and a good de-furring, he was a new kitty!


So does he look happy?  No, we didn't think so either.
Carl was purrfectly happy with clumps of matted and shed fur 
sticking out all over the place.  
He looked cool with his punk look. 
Unfortunately, the evil mom disagreed.

He may have been happy to be home,  
but we girls thought he smelled funny 
and we let him know in no uncertain terms.

This was the best place to be until he smelled like good ol' Carl again.
And maybe until the mom removed his tie
(though he does like wearing it).

So we got to say that the tie is a little silly, but you are looking mighty fine Carl and any one of us lady cats would feel just fine having you as our beau. Purrs and hugs from the kitties at The Cat on My Head, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette .Mauricio says that we can leave him out of this.

Oh, Carl, you are soooo cute in your tie! But the indignity of it all... so not fair.

MOL. Mommy still can't stop laughing at how "happy" Carl looks after his grooming session. Hahaha. That's pretty much how all HER clients look when she's done grooming them too. MOLMOLMOL!

Fuzzy Tales said...

Hahahaha. Nope, Carl didn't look happy at all. But he sure looks handsome, especially with that necktie!

Pat Hatt said...

Hahaha he looks like one grumpy kitty, don't blame him.

Carl is looking very handsome post torture-adventure!

Our neighbour kitty, Manoush, is a very wild boy and even his owner can't get close enough to brush or demat his long furs. So, recently, he would look like an angel, or bird, when he ran, with bits of fur flying up and down his sides. They're mostly gone now, thank goodness.

Purrs,
The Chans

Brian said...

Well Carl, you do look mighty fine pal!

Annie Bear said...

Lol about the corner hissing. Not too savvy, Carl. You look so handsome, though. All the girl kitties I'm sure are swooning.

Tails from the Foster Kittens said...

How terrible! First you get poked with a broom handle then you get stuffed in the PTU and taken away to be tortured. You do look good now though.
