Mommy Beware

Kitties, last night I showed out in a very unflattering way.  I just can't cope with Ginger.

It was 10 PM and there was an awful crash in the spare bedroom.  I screamed.  Mom got up to see that  I had knocked over the plant stand andthat the sole plant that was on it fell to the floor.  I knocked over the china bowl and pitcher that was inside it as well and the trash can. All to get to Ginger who had the complete unmitigated gall to come into MY yard.

Mom knows better than to come over to me although she spoke to me.  I hissed very loudly at her, kitties.  But she didn't come over to me of course. Every time she spoke, I turned and warned her with my posture and my loud hisses and open mouth.

Mom sprayed some calming spray she said later and she put on a jacket and went outside to scare him off if he was still there.

Peace eventually came back to the household but she stayed up an additional hour just in case.  Sigh.  I laid on the coffee table with her but my tail was thumping so she didn't pet me.  I didn't go in when she went to bed and I finally got up on the bottom on the bed close to morning.

There is nothing to be done.  For some reason he just enrages me.  The black kitty simply makes me talk and chatter and be alert.

Mom doesn't know who he belongs to but he is not a stray we feel sure.  He doesn't act like he's hungry...he's just inspecting what he must consider is his territory.  Mom said she hates to have her hand forced but she may have to stop feeding the birds again.  But birds aren't what brought him here in the night.  It was what he considered his patrol.

Sigh.

  3. That sounds traumatic for both you and Mom/the plant stand.

    Fnaks for your kind comment on my blog post. I wanted to tell you I have discovered some fuds even yummier than T with G. It is the newer Friskies INDOOR formula ones. They are so yummy, I have cleaned my plate for the first time ever.

  4. Katie, maybe my woofie Grete will be willing to teleport over and bark at the introoder. She does that for us.

  5. Oh, Katie, we so sorry to hear this. Honey, your Mom would never let that Ginger ever get in there and hurt you. We are just positive on that. And you know, it seems every neighborhood everywhere has that one neighbor that just always aggravates the spit out of you.
    You hang in there. Hugs and kitty kisses.

  7. You need a hero! I'm sure with your sweetness and beauty you can get a nice woofie (or better yet, a handsome mancat) to come defend your territory and stop that Ginger from thinking territorial about YOUR territory.
    Work it, girl. We know you can!

  8. Oh Katie. We are proud of you for protecting your home and your mom, but we can tell you that the screaming makes moms crazy. It is too bad that Ginger's family can't keep him inside.

  9. You started a real chain reaction there, huh? Sometimes, certain kitties just rub us the wrong way, I think. Once, a couple of years back, a kitty came to our door and the peeps let him in. Ulysses (hmmm... not sure I spelled that correctly) was quite a handsome panther but my Auntie Blossom shrieked and shrieked and he couldn't stay. He lives in Halifax now with his new family. purrs

  10. Oh Katie, you do keep your Mom busy.

    Why do you get so upset when other kitties visit ?

    My gang lets me know but not like you do.

    Love your photo. You look all pouty and thinky.

    xo,

  11. That Ginger must be giving you a look or posture that seems threatening to you. It is not very nice of him to do that.

    Maybe some wood shutters on that window that can be secured at night so you can't look out? I don't know. I'm just throwing that out there.

  12. You are such a brave guardcat, Katie and I'm so proud of you. But you do need to be careful not to hurt yourself in the process.
    You look mighty peeved in that picture...shall Boomie come over to snuggle with his pretty girl?

  13. We're so sorry you were frightened. Snuggles are good for calming, even if you don't really want them. Purrs from your friends at Colehauscats.com

  14. Katie, that is too bad that darn cat comes around and makes you crazy. Baby Doll is the same way when another cat is around. She hisses at Mom too. Mom needs to go out with the squirt bottle and squirt that orange cat. Maybe he will quit coming over there. You must of had a really bad experience with an orange cat. Take care.

  15. Oh,my! What a disturbing way to end your day, Miss Katie!

  18. That MEAN Ginger cat! I'd scold and chase after him if i could Katie. He has no business being where you live, and i'm sorry he bothers you so much. :( Sorry about your Mom's spilled plant. Not every kitty is as good as you are. There are some who are real trouble makers!

  19. I sure wish I had an answer for you sweet girl, but try to be calm, you don't need that stress!

  20. Don't you worry about Ginger, lovely Katie=we bet you scared him with all the hissing, sweetie...You are the Queen of the house, precious girl!!...Hope you are enjoying the week, sweetie...xoxo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

  21. Isn't it funny that one bothers you so much and the other not so much? What's really funny is our orange guy from across the street always gets Star and even more, Leo in an uproar, but the black one, from the same house, doesnt. Of course, black guy never comes as close as orange guy..

    I wonder if your ginger guy is unfixed... that might be the issue, if he's marking near your house. Even if he belongs to someone (who's obviously not taking good care of him if he's out all night!) maybe he should be TNRed..

  22. That is SO not fair that that intruder just traipses all over YOUR territory, Katie! I wish there was some way to keep him off, but I imagine your human has looked into EVERYTHING by now. Calming purrs to you.

  23. Whoa! You do have a nasty side. I never would've thought! Not even I hiss at the humans.

  24. Oh Katie I am so sorry that Ginger upset you again. We hope he stays away so you won't have to deal with him anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh Katie dear! We are sorry that Ginger had the nerve to invade YOUR territory! Hmph! How dare Ginger do such a thing!
    We are sending extra hugs and calming purrs your way xoxoxo

  26. I'm so sorry that the ginger cat upsets you so, dear Miss Katie. It makes things difficult for both you and your Mom. I suspect that if your Mom tried to go outside to chase away the ginger cat, you would try to go outside too.

    Our late Hemingway went berserk at any cat in his territory. Gracie eventually tolerated Cat, the kitty from next door, before he crossed the Rainbow Bridge.

  27. So sorry to hear that ginger kitteh is aggravating you. If we hear of a way to keep him out of the yard, we'll pass it along. XOXO

  28. Oh, sweet Katie we were sure sorry to read that the ginger cat has come back around and got you all upset. We wish he would stay away. We are glad you got all settled back down though. Hugs and nose kisses

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh no, Katie! This is rough for both you and your mommy. I sure hope for everyone's sake the ginger stops coming by. Hang in there, girlfriend. Maybe regular calming spray is in order...? I wish I had an answer.

  30. Sorry to hear that Ginger has been bugging you, Katie! That's rough on everyone -- especially moms and houseplants!

  31. Katie, you must try to remain calm and maintain your regal poise! xxoo Bhu

  32. You are right Katie-Isabella, this is 100 purr cent a territorial issue. No wonder he upsets you -- he's invading YOUR turf. Harumph!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Um, you looks real skeery peering down like that, my darling girl. In fact, you look . . . FIERCE. And you know what? It's kind of, well, yes, I have to say it, ::shhhhhhhh:: sexy.

    Tell you what: Maybe your Mommy can come over here tonight and hang out with my Human, and *I* can teleport over there and, you know, kind of "be there for you" if you get all crazypants with that Ornj Boi. Your Mommy might not know how to snuggle up when you're all poofed, but I know how to purr and groom your little head....and, well, you know....

    So, shall we expect your Mommy in an hour or so? Around 8 our time?

  34. We wish Mr. Ginger would stay in his own yard! And we bet your mom wishes the same thing too, Katie.

  35. Poor beautiful Katie Isabella. I'm so sorry he scared you. Mom might need to get you a pair of blinders.

    But are you sure, you knocked over all the stuff? Because I think "Wasn't Me" or "I don't know" did it!

  36. Maybe your Mommy could get a ConTech Scarecrow Animal Deterrent. It scares the intruder away with a spray of water. So it doesn't hurt the trespasser and it uses very little water, but after getting wet a few times the trespasser will get the hint and stay away. Those we know who have used this product say it's really easy to set up and solved their problem. Just an idea to avoid the upset an intruder cat might cause. If you want one you can just Google or Bing it. Or email our huMom, she can tell you where to get one online. Take care.
    Purrs to you,

  37. Poor Katie ... boy some kitties just canNOT take the hint, can they??

    You must continue, however, with your vigilant protection of your home & territory (and meowmy). You're doing an excellent job!

    Purrs!
