Tabby Tattletale Tuesday

::rolls eyes::
As if you would be fooled into thinking that this photo was taken in November.  Clearly you can tell my mom is trying to pass off a summer photo as something current.
Never fear, I look as handsome as ever.  It's just that the weather outside has been a bit chilly and I'm staying indoors with my pals.
But furriends...you wouldn't believe the horror of my day.  Mom was fussing over Madison.  He's old and can't quite groom himself the way he used to.  But that means mom is fussing over him.  Brushing him.  Furminating him.
What about ME??
I love to be brushed, I love to be Furminated.  Yeah I admit throwing a few punches at Madison when he's getting attention...but I didn't deserve what happened to me.
Mom stepped on me!   You heard me right.  She stepped on me!
Now mom will say it's because I was underfoot and trying to steal Madison's time...but
I can assure you that being prone to drama worked in my favor.  Mom swooped me up...cooed and told me that she would never ever do anything like that on purpose. She carried me around and kissed me until I purred.   All my paws were tested to make sure they still worked. 
Oh it was awesome.

I can't believe she stepped on you! But at least she treated you well after. Did you get treats too? To make up for it? And purrs to Madison.

Ginger, the same thing has happened to Binga, twice! That's right, she has been stepped on two times (at least) by my human! And yeah, getting all dramatic about it really does get attention! And of course Binga was fine!

P.S. It still looks like that outside down here in L.A., so you would have had me fooled!

Oh no!!! That had to be traumatic...we hope you continue to get lots of extra treats and love!!

You're a bit of a Machiaveli, aren't you Ginger????

#1 always tells us that we must show proper respect to those who are older…

Milk it, Ginger. That will teach her for not paying more attention to you.

Hi! Nice to meet you! I'm Crepes! It's still kind of warm here, so we still have Crepes. Totally PLAUSIBLE photo. - Crepes.

That happens to us sometimes too. It is a great way to make the humans feel bad and get some extra attention from them.....if only it didn't hurt so much!

Meowm sends Madison hugs and smooches.

I am glad you got lots of cuddles and kisses after the terrible trauma of being stepped on. Humans! They always try to blame us by saying we get underfoot when it is obvious they aren't looking where they are going.

Yikes, poor Ginger! Sometimes Mom steps on Saku too 'cuz he is quicker than her, MOL

Making mom feel guilty and getting extra lubbing is almost worth the pain, MOL

Better a Summer photo than no photo at all!

Please tell me you also got treats? I sometimes get stepped on too - always milk it until I get a treat!

Oh, no! She stepped on you? If it didn't hurt much maybe you can slip a toesy or the tip of your tail under her foot now and then and you can get picked up, loved on and get more attention that way. Maybe even get brushed. Hugs and nose kisses
