Terrified Tabby Tuesday

I am one seriously scared kitty. Tonight Mom saw me in our room, and saw that I was really far from the door, so she shut the door. She knows I hate the door being shut. How else can I escape from her if the door is shut? I ran around for a while and tried to hide from her and she tried to tempt me with Temptations. I wasn't having any of those. I kept hissing at her, and I finally tried to hide behind the shears. She got our crocheted blanket that is a squillion miles big, and threw it over me, and wrapped me up in it, and shoved me in a box. I couldn't really see where I was because there was no way I was coming out from under the blanket. It was the only thing keeping me safe in there. I could hear her getting some stuff together and then the box started moving. It moved for a couple of minutes and then it was put down, and the box door was opened, and Mom started to move the blanket. She moved it enough for me to see I could escape that horrid box, and I ran and hid.
Here I am hiding under this big thing on stilts. It is a good place to hide, but Mom can still see me under here. Fortunately, it doesn't look like she can touch me tho. As you can see, I am telling her to go away and leave me alone. It is very scary and I am all alone.
Mom left me alone for a while and came back with some more stuff and opened a can of food for me and then just laid down on top of the big thing on stilts. She would talk to me every once in while, and she kept trying to tell me how sorry she was for scaring me and how bad she felt, but that I would be okay. She would also get off the big thing on stilts every once in a while and look at me. She tried to give me Temptations, but how do I know that they aren't poisoned or something.
See, you can see she has scattered some around for me, but I am not going to fall for those again.
In other news, Mom made a big mistake. When she put me in the moving box and took me to the other room, she forgot to put the lid on our treat jar, and Camie helped herself. If you remember what this looked like in the after shot on Sunday and how it looks now, you can see that she needs to get us some more Temptations.

Mom here: I feel horrible. Cody was crying and hissing at me when I shut the door, but it was the perfect opportunity to get him. He got very calm once he was in the PTU and stopped crying, but as you can see from the top picture, he did cry a couple of times in my room in my new place. I put him in there because I do have roommates and there is a strange woofie he hasn't had the chance to meet yet. I will be moving the rest of us in tomorrow. I can't leave him alone longer than a night. He truly hates being shut up, but until I can be there to make sure everyone knows the rules about closed outside doors, it is for the best, and I will feel horribly guilty until then.

Dear Cody's Mom,

Please don't feel guilty. You needed to move him. It was never going to be an easy task for you or for him. At least you were able to move him. He will settle down. You are doing the best you can for him at this time. It will get better.

Hi Cody, I'm sorry that you were captured and forced into the PTU. That sounds absolutely horrible! Now eat your Temptations and get ready for Tiki and Tavi, Camie to come join you. It's going to get better and better around there.

Thanks for coming to visit us and leaving kind words!

Oh Cody, my man! I feel for you, buddy. Sometimes a mancat just has to hide to feel safe. You know mom means well, though, right? I'm sure you will feel better once you see Tiki and Tavi again.

PS: I know how horrible you must feel, Cody's mom. I hope he calms down soon for you.
