Tabby Tattletale Tuesday


You wouldn't believe what's been going on here.   We've had a kitty cold running rampant through the house.  Everyone thinks it started with me, but they can't pin it on me.  Nope. Then everyone's been getting it except for Madison and Cecilia who are in the shop and Jonesie.  The reasons for this have become clear.  You see, I couldn't even figure it out, then mom and dad started calling Ellie "Typhoid Mary".  Turns out she's the one spreading it because she's the one washing everyone!   Ewwww...what I thought was love was Ellie's little way of infecting us all.  She got over it, but by washing Bennette...she got it again!  Mom and dad have finally separated Ellie and she is in quarantine.  None of the rest of us like each other enough to spread it around.  Jonesie doesn't even like Ellie washing her and that is how she has stayed well.  Smart girl.  Seems I can learn more than gardening from her.

Then...all was calm and "little miss perfect sweetheart" Cory was licking on mom all sweet and manipulative like and then Cory put the chomp on mom's finger.  Acted as if my mom should enjoy it.  The nerve of that little whippersnapper!  And then, just when I thought mom would realize that I am the real sweetheart around here, mom makes a fuss over Cory.  "Oh she didn't realize my finger wasn't cheese"...mom didn't even have cheese on her finger.  That little piranha in cat's clothing gets away with stuff all the time.  It's not fair.  Mom even had to go to Urgent Care and get a tetanus shot and antibiotics...she still thinks Cory is sweet and innocent.  And guess who was asleep and purry in mom's lap when she got back from the clinic?  Cory. Sheesh.   Cory claims that she was just trying to re live her babyhood where she used to nom gently on mom's finger.  I know better.  I didn't just fall off the turnip truck.

I really want to know if it was tasty--I mean if it tasted good I can do that to my human...

It sounds like feelings are running a little high over there, with the sniffles and all. We hope everyone feels better and there will be no more chomping!

Hey, Ginger...we hope you all get well soon and Miss Ellie can get out of quarantine...

And sometimes fingers can look like cheese...

Parker said...

Oh dear! I think everyone needs a good nap and some catnip.
Hope your Mom's finger feels better!

Brian said...

Y'all take care of yourselves and get all better soon...no finger biting, those finger things feed you!

The Whiskeratti said...

Ginger, what would we do without you to give us all the latest inside stuff?

Forever Foster said...

Hahahaha! Typhoid Ellie! Ginger, you live a hard life, don't you :P

Maggie May said...

MOL at Khyra's response!!! Dixie Dog wonders how she manages to live here sometimes too!

"Oh she didn't realize my finger wasn't cheese"... Too funny!! But seriously, we hope your mom's finger is all better or at least on the mend now. Our mom got bit by the last TNR kitten she post op here. It wasn't pretty, but it healed up nicely.

Sending healing vibes to all who have a cold!

Cory was just giving your Mom a love nip - we know 'cause we do the same thing.

We pass colds around here too and we don't even lick each other! We hope you're all better soon.

Cliff and Olivia said...

A lot has been happening at your place. We hope you all recover from kitty cold soon - and that your Mom is OK. How sad for Ellie to be in quarantine - and she was just trying to be nice :-)

Ellie is loving everybuddy too much! And Cory can probly get away with just about anything with THAT face! Srsly.

PS. Hi, Cory! xoxo

CCL Wendy said...

Sometimes life just isn't fair, Ginger! At least you get to blog all about it once a week and get things off your chest.

That's really tough when there's a cold going round with kitties who lick each other. Especially a loving kitty like Ellie! I'm sure she didn't mean any harm. I hope efurryone gets well soon.

Junior and Orion said...

We are glad that your Moms finger will be okay. Sometimes we all get carried away with our love bites.

We hope you all get well soon!

Ginger Jasper said...

Oh dear sounds as though things are a little hot at your house. I hope the cold clears up from everyone and that your mums finger is better today.. Hugs GJ xx

William said...

Wow, that sounds like quite a love nip!

Fin said...

That was some chomp!

Huffle Mawson said...

Obviously Ginger you are a good girl.

Cory, I wouldn't worry about putting the bitey on your mum like that. I've done it to mum and dad and they don't seem to mind too much.

Cat with a Garden said...

What a story, Ginger. We can't believe it. Your poor mommy! Ouchies are no fun end especially not when they are from us cats. We're sorry that Ellie is in quarantine, but that might be a clever thing to do.
