Tabby Tattletale Tuesday

Hi there!  Last week was really hard.  I mean, most of the attention around here went to Jonesie.  Jonesie this and Jonesie that.  What about me?  Aren't I helpful in the garden?  Aren't I as beautiful and special and ....oh...I feel a hairball coming on....

I thought I'd pose by the oregano...I'm a spicy girl you know.  A spice girl actually.  Gingerspice!

Mom and dad brought home some cool garden art.  Jonesie will take credit for placing it, but I look good exposing my belly next to it.  This one has a butterfly and a dragonfly on it.
So...it's Tuesday so I might as well dish it.  See, Jonesie DID get all the attention this past week because she was sick.  Mom fussed and dad fussed and you'd think all they cared about was Jonesie...not the rest of us.  It's enough to make me file a complaint with the ASPCA.  I was just about to do just that, when I found out that little Miss Purrfect had an "incident".  See, she was being stubborn about using her private litter box.  She went 48 hours without touching it, which freaked out everyone.  I dream of having a private box, but Jonesie was having none of it.  She was hauled back off the to v-e-t for a recheck and on the way back home her very full bladder couldn't take the bumps in the road and about a couple of blocks from the house she let fly in her carrier.  All over her fleece...all over her and all over the instructions from the v-e-t on what we need to do for her.   

It was great! 

Jonesie was horrified and all that did was make mom and dad fuss even more over her.  I can't win.

Ginger has a floofy belly, Ginger is a drama queen, Ginger is a gossip, Ginger is a sweetie! I hope Jonesie feels better soon so you can get some of that limelight. Bonkies for you all from us.

Ginger, although I'm a spicy girl too and love to get all of the attention I can't help but to feel terribly sorry for Jonesie. That was very unpleasant for everyone involved. Please try to be nice and give her a noselick from Siena and me.
Purrs, Chilli

OMC! Jonesie peed her pants? Ha ha ha. . . but really, I'm sure she's embarrassed, poor girl. We're sending more purrs for her to get better. And we're sending you some purrs too Ginger. . . just because we like you!

Cliff and Olivia said...

You look like a great gardener.

Because of the lazy humans we didn't know about Jonesie until now. We'll look into that right away.

Forever Foster said...

Careful, Ginger. Jonesie might pee on you next:P

We hope she is feeling much better.

Parker said...

I can see why they would fuss, but I agree, you are gorgeous!

The Island Cats said...

Aw, poor Jonesie! That is a little embarrassing, y'know, and a mess too!! Ginger, we know you want the attention, but that kind of attention you don't really want...cuz you don't want to be sick and hafta go to the vet.

We hope Jonesie is feeling better...

The Monkeys said...

We think that you'll be back to getting a lot of attention when Jonesie is feeling better, so we'll send lots of purrs so Jonesie is feeling great and that you get your attention, Ginger Spice :)

Goldie, Shade and Banshee said...

Your garden looks wonderful and the new additiond are great!
