Tuxie Tuesday (and Tortie Tuesday for all the Torties out there) Tabby Tuesday too.

Kitties, mom did have the mothballs down 3/4th of a day and took them back up because of the advice she got here about toxicity. She had sprayed the really strong stuff (and my saved up allowance paid for it..my piggy bank has one single dollar seed money in it now) but she didn't want Ginger or any one hurt so she stopped that too.  She wasted my allowance and here I am without my TV.  But oh well.

I am sad and have spent a lot of time sleeping on the floor or mom instead of playing.  That makes mom sad because she knows I want the doors open.  This is terrible.  Mom feels that Ginger belongs to someone down the street and even if she knew which home, she doubts that anyone who lets their cat wander like that would care one bit about my troubles if she told them.  Most won't keep a cat in once they let it out at will.  Just the way things go.

Happy Tuxie Tuesday.

  1. Hi Katie. We're sorry your piggy bank was raided for naught.

    You're right, though, it's not likely that whatever human is supposed to be caretaker for that cat would care. Still...You never know! Sometimes humans surprise us in a good way. Not often (lol), but sometimes.

  2. Oh Katie, we are so sorry you are having such a hard time. Maybe that cat won't come back over to your house. After all he hasn't been there before now. Do you have any windows up high that maybe Mom could put the tree there for you sit in and look out the window?? Wish we could help you tell that kitty to stay away.

  3. Awww Katie. It's terrible to be without birdie TV. I wouldn't like that either. Sorry about your allowance too. It's like you are being punished because of the Ginger boy! Not fair. We has to come up with an idea so you can have your birdie TV back.

  5. Since that bad ginger cat is out of control, I think it should be reported to Animal Control (or whatever it is called in your area).

  6. I'm sorry you got the sads, Katie. No bird TV is no fun at all. And we're sorry to read about the ginger cat. We hope it all gets worked out. (((purrs))

    xo, Katie & Glogirly

  7. M found these less toxic options: Nature's Miracle Odor Neutralizer or half vinegar / half water mixture, sprayed onto spayed surface. Either one can be used indoors or out.

  8. I am sorry to hear that your Mommeh has disconnected your TV and that your allowance was spent on ineffective solutions to your problems. I know your Mommeh would not have wasted the money if she knew it would not work. And at least you have some savings; not many kitties do!. PT also says she is sorry your TV is disconnected.

  9. Maybe your Mommy could open a window or door for you and sit with you for a little while so she could fend off Introodur Catz for you? Just for a half-hour or so, so you could watch your favorite show?

    In any case, we don't think this will last forever. Hopefully that Introoder kitteh will got bored and go visit some other house.

    If your Mommy were really diabolical, she could get some cat treats and sprinkle them around some OTHER houses so maybe the Introoder Cat would go hang out THERE, ha ha meow!!

    XOXOXOXO, Spitty

  10. Katie, your mom could spray the ginger cat with water. It won't hurt him one bit in the summer (in the winter when it's cold it would be a bad thing to do) but he won't like it. I can promise you that. She could use the garden hose or just a cup of water. Clean water won't hurt anything but his feelings... promise!

  11. We agree with Nerissa! We think you should scare the cat off(and a good spray of water might very well do the trick!) when he comes again.Just make it very unappealing for him to come back!

  12. Oh sweetheart, we are so sorry you are having introoder troubles! We think it is so sad when humans let their kitties run free. Don't they know how dangerous it is outside!!!

  13. We are so sad your TV isn't
    available :(

    We wish we were there to see if we could come up with a solution. We wonder if you'd like a window for Bird TV and whiffies.

  14. Katie we are so sorry about your Bird TV being interrupted due to a rude neighbor cat. Mom and Dad had that same problem with their first cat. he was totally indoors and neuter but oh my once he saw a stray cat on our deck they said he yowled and threw himself at the door. This went on about 2 weeks and then the stray wasn't coming anymore.
    Good luck
    hugs Madi and Mom

  15. I would love to ask you come stay with me but I understand you'll miss your Mommy as she would you. Maybe you could ask your Mommy to use the water technique or she could try what Daddy does...he runs after the stray cats, all the while shouting and stomping his feet. It's really hilarious but it works!
    We sure hope Ginger cat goes someplace else and you can watch Bird TV again.

    PS/ Spitty's idea does sound like a good one (sprinkling treats at some other houses)! MOL!

  16. Dousing the intruder cat with water may be the safest option. Hope it helps.

  17. I agree with the other posters - water spray. I don't know how your house is set up, but could maybe your Mom set up a water sprinkler to run at its slowest setting in front of the front for a couple of days? Might make for a muddy front, but would discourage intruder.

  18. Katie, we are so sad for you...can we send you a little pick-me-up? Have your Mommy email us your snail mail addy and we'll send you something fun!

  19. Katie, we're so sorry you're so sad. Hopefully the ginger kitty will stop bothering you.

    Our mom's sister used to let her cats go outside, but a couple of years ago, she started keeping them indoors. So, there is hope!

  20. Katie, we're sorry that kitty is spoiling your fun and making you sad. Maybe your mom can turn on a water sprinkler to keep that kitty away from the window while you enjoy it. We don't know if that'd work but we don't know what else to suggest to make you happy again.

  21. No bird tv that outdoor kitty is no good at all. Purring for a solution so that you can be happy and playing again soon.

  22. We are sorry you are missing your bird TV Katie. Spraying the cat with water sounds like a good idea. A hosepipe might be better than a sprinkler though, because if he's anything like me he might think the sprinkler is for playing with. I love water and playing in it, but I don't think I would like a hosepipe sprayed at me.

  23. This may seem a tad harsh, but on a warm summer day, maybe Mom could hose the introoder down a little to discourage him from comin around!

  24. We're sorry about Ginger and will cross our paws someone claims her as their own=we know you need Bird TV back, lovely Katie, just sayin...We adore your cute avatar, lovely girl!...Happy week ahead, precious friend...xoxo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

  25. Oh poor Katie! But we do have the same problems here with a ginger, but as most cats go outside anyway, they mark their territory and learn to avoid each other, but there are fights now and then. It’s always unneutered toms that cause the problems, though xoxo

  26. The owners of the ginger kitty might be sympathetic, Katie, but now that he is used to being allowed out, he would be very upset to be kept in. The kitty who was here ahead of me, Rusty, was an outside cat, and if when Mom and Dad tried to make him stay inside, he would yowl and paw at the door for the whole day. It was just impossible.

  27. Dearest Katie

    I am sorry to hear that you are still having problems, and bewails due to the outside ginger kitty from 'up the road'. Of course, I get chucked out in the yard everyday when the Master and Mistress, go to work, so there are certainly no stray cats in my back yard... Millie and Ollie (the felines) of course have a special dispensation yard pass... but because it is winter in our part of the world those lucky cats get to stay inside during the day... while I have to be outside! This is discrimination I say... but there you have it... (I am not allowed on the bed either, for that matter...) heck, I only weigh 40 kg (80 lbs or so... I wouldn't take up that much room really...)

    In your service

  31. Katie, it seems like there has to be something your human can do! I kind of like the idea of hosing down that mean ginger cat... if he was not expecting it and did not see where (who) it was coming from, he might never come back!

  32. We'd go nuts with all the windows closed off too! Hang in there honey!

  36. I'm sorry beautiful lady. I know you miss watching "birdie TV". I hope your life gets back to normal...


    I've been MIA (very sick - strep throat and the works). So I just noticed the new blog banner - it's beautiful.

  37. Katie, to shoo intruder cats, our human either make noise like clapping hands and yell 'go home' or spray some water. :)

  39. So sorry for your troubles, my sweet furriend. I agree w/Nerissa - water! Safe & effective and it won't hurt him.

    Poor ginger kitty ... WHY WHY WHY won't people keep their kitties INSIDE?! This is SUCH an issue with me and definitely with my MomKatt. They are our care-givers and many should be a LOT more responsible. MomKatt gets VERY upset when she sees a kitty that is CLEARLY homed somewhere out 'wandering'. It's not right, I tell ya!

    Irritated purrs,

  40. Oh no! Not mothballs. They're bad for cats and humans too. TW found out Lavender oil isn't much better for cats. People who let their cats out should be arrested.
