Mama and Papa's Cat-a-strophic week - Cats on Tuesday

Mama and Papa's Cat-a-strophic Week


Hello everyone,

Me in bed drawer
It’s me again, Rappy, mama and papa have had a bad week, their car is in the hospital since last Thursday night, it broke down when they were on their way home from Harrogate and they were stuck in a bad place for 2 hours until the RAC man arrived, he couldn’t fix the problem so he had to do a temporary job so they could drive it home.  He was afraid it would give up the ghost on the way home, 40+ miles on lonely country roads, so he followed them to a garage in Malton where they always have work done, then he brought them home in his van.  It was very late when they arrived and me, Jet and Calli were getting worried.

Me trying to get Jet to wrestle
Mama is still not feeling very well, and her camera won’t work, she said it needs new batteries but they can’t get into town cos there is no bus from our village.  So she said I can put up some old pictures of me, Jet and Calli.

We are glad the car is sick cos now mama and papa can’t leave us and we have them all to ourselves all day.  They have to stay in today cos an engineer is coming to look at one of our walls, the one between the kitchen and living room is not well, and the plaster is crumbling and falling off.  Papa says it is rising damp.

Our Calli has several names, Calli-poppet, Calli Patch Pelt, Papa's little Princess and Mama's little Mugwump.  Mama say's Mugwump is an Algonquin Indian word meaning Big Chief.  But I'm Big Chief here.

Oh dear ... the car and the wall sound expensive to repair. Poor mom and dad.
We klove the pics ... especially the bed drawer one as we BOTH like to get into the bed drawers here. Mom worries we will get trapped in there so she keeps a close eye.

We are sorry to hear about your Mom and Dad's car troubles! Bad for them, but good for you since they have to spend more time with you! Also tell your Mom we hope she feels better real soon!

We are so sorry about the car and the wall. Sounds like two big problems.
What a pretty garden for Calli-Poppet to sit in. She is just as pretty as the garden.

Jet you are very handsome. I love the picture of you with the big ball of yarn.

Mjau, mjau!
I am also glad to have mum home - because I think she has been away too much lately. Fortunately her sister lives near by and she feeds me when mum and dad go traveling.
I miss Nøste, we had good times together during our stay in the house, just the two of us. Now I feel quite alone.
My friend in the house in the end of the street is also gone, but a new cat has moved into the house beside our neighbor. Haven't seen much of him or her yet!
Sad to hear about you mum and dad's broken car, but it's a thing that can be fixed....I think!

Good bye mjau from Sia

Rappy you are so cute!!! I read an article that stated the tuxedo's are to be the most intelligent kitties around Mr.Jangels and Buttons both say they agree...
You look like my sweet Charlee Barlee of many years ago....
