Tabby Tuesday

Mom has placed a line of these Temptations on the floor leading to a red box, and then she has left more in the box. Does anyone know why? I am very leery about going into the box while she is sitting next to it. Actually, I am leery of getting that close to her anyway. Mom says she is experimenting to see if the soft approach works. Last night I went in until just my back feet and my tail weren't in the box. Mom could have pushed my butt in and shut the door, but she isn't going to do that until she is actually ready to take me to our new home. She is hoping she is going to be coordinated enough to get me in on the first try.

Cody, we think getting in the box is an excellent idea if it means more Temptations! :)

I would be very wary about that if I were you. My Mom used that same trick to get me to the V-E-T for my Ladygardenectomy.

I do NOT like the PTU.

Cody, we wish your Mommy luck on the first try, cause we think she'll only get one!

Uh oh, are you getting in that PTU??? Where are you going?

Cody, temptations are always a great reason to go anywhere - but I know how you feel. If the mom WANTS you to do something, that usually means you shouldn't.

Oh Cody! Yes! Come over right away! We'll play and hide and hide and play . . . and then it won't matter WHY there are temptations on the red box. You can have plenty here without a mom or a red box anywhere in sight. Just leave it to us!

We say go for Cody - all those temptations are super. As long as your mom keeps putting out those tasty treats!

Cody, I think you are very brave for even trying out the red box. I think you will be all ready when the scary day comes. And I hope you keep getting all those Temptations!
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

O, Cody, i finks you is already on to yours mommie.
Tha "butt pushing" part must be tha "brute force approach", which is opposite of tha "soft approach".
Seems to me I readed sumfing about a PTU an a trail of temptashuns, just can't remember wheres.
Purrs,
KC

I'm sure it's a trick--watch out!

Someone's being very, very sneaky. That is very, very suspicious, Cody!

Yes, but will you play ball?

Don't get in the box! It's a trick!

I hate those boxes. When I see it coming out I run and hide. But usually I get picked up and stuffed into it. My mum says her top tip is to wear a long-sleeved thick top while doing this in order to avoid getting scratched by the escaping kitty.

Is yur Momma tryin a sneeky way of gettin you to go inna PTU?

I blow Momma's mind. Cuz I like our PTUs! Momma usually keeps 'em put up but she got one of 'em out fur Marilyn to go to the vet for her dental work, and I wented right in it and satted in it and made myself all comfycozy! And when I've gone to the vet I do the same thing. Purretty amazing, huh?

And Marilyn's easy to get inna PTU, too, ecksept she doesn't like it in there much once she's there.

Dorydoo's hardur to get in the PTU and Brainball is the hardest! He HATES the PTU! Makes him yowl and fuss and pee and poo!

Thankies so much fur your infurmation on Meezers/Oriental breeds and FLORS. Momma will be sure to have my toothies checked regularly. I don't want FLORS! It sounds furry ouchie!

I would just eat them, no matter where they led, but that's just me!

DaisyMae Maus said...

Gosh, those Temptations look furry delicious. I guess that the PTU is the price that you pay for havin' so many nummy Temptations.

Oh my, the PTU *sigh*. I'm easy for Mom to get me in the PTU. I'm very easygoing about doing whatever Mom wants. But once I'm in the PTU, I don't like it much! I peed in mine yesterday!

Thank you so much for your thoughts and purrs! I'm feeling well today, getting lots of rest, and eating plenty of stinky goodness and chicken baby food -- yummy! The Cat Blogosphere is the best!

And thank you so much for your info re: FLORS and MaoMao! Mom will be sure he gets his teeth checked regularly.

Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn!

Dear Cody,

You have hit the Temptations motherload! Don't ask why? Just enjoy them! Follow them where ever they go! You might want to take a nap in the red box. I bet it's comfy in there and maybe Temptations rain down in there. I think you should really try it.

Quasi said...

Something is definitely up, and I think it's a plan to get you to go into the box on your own. You just have to weigh whether all those Temptations are worth getting trapped in the box. What a dilemna!
