Um, It Was an Accident, Mom

Kitties, other favorite brother is here till this morning and then the usual favorite brother will arrive this afternoon, also for an overnight and leaving in the morning.

Meanwhile, mom and my other favorite brother had gone out to eat last night at Ruby's as mom lurves their salad bar).  When they got home from that, they had a grading pawty with mom getting to grade some papers too.  He has a total of 186 students and he teaches six classes, so we (he) has over 600 papers to grade this weekend.  No, HE will have all of those because mom only graded maybe a hundred or so.  When he goes back to his home in NC he will have to finish all of that we had to leave undone last night before school commences again Monday morning.  Brother teaches Science.

Moving on, here is what I did last night after mom was in bed, lights out and waiting for me to join her.  There she was with her pillow all bunched up to suit her and her position feeling just right.  She had her eyes closed I know when I leapt lightly to my place already prepared right beside her.  She always carves out a semi circle of area free of the top sheet and blankie so I can have unobstructed access to her warmness.  Kitties, there I was, and within just perhaps maybe three minutes she heard that old familiar sound.  I have to tell you that I horked a HUGE amount of kibble all over our fresh and just changed bed linens.  An enviable pile, Kitties.

Mom had to get up of course and remove the pile, place paper towels under the sheet and cover the sheet with two fresh pillow cases.  Then she settled back in.  I refused to go anywhere near where I had horked.  So I occasionally slept at the foot of our bed.  Sorry Mom.  (suuuuure).


Me with this favorite brother last visit.

  4. See, that's what happens with indiscriminate horking! :-)

    I'd better not tell Ron about all that paper grading...it might give him nightmares! :-)

  5. Good one, Katie! If you've got to hork, do it in style, we say.

  6. I'm confused--why would you hork in your favorite sleeping spot?

  7. Too bad you messed up your sleeping spot but good job on the warning free horking so your mom couldn't push you off the bed first! Bet she moved pretty quick afterwards though!

  10. Awww Miss Katie you are a heroine to all of us girl kitties! Such beauty and well timed horkdom!!! What a great combo! MOL

  11. Right on the bed too! *high five*

    I have so far, not horked up anything since I got here. Mommy says it's probably because of my cast iron stomach with super acidic stomach acids from having lived outdoors for a while. And she's not complaining! MOL.

    See you in a few minutes, Sweetheart!

  16. Can't tell you how many times that has happened to us. Not near our pillow though but end of the bed or where we walk. If I hear it, I usually have to get up to see who got sick and clean it up.

    Meredith does it a lot with her long furs. Ashton does it too cause he's a nervous guy and pulls his furs out.

  17. Good job Katie. I pulled that trick once too, but it was down at the foot of the bed on the blankey and so the humans left it until the next morning. Besides, it was just a tiny bit. When you do something Katie, you really do it up big time!

  18. Top marks for a well placed hork Katie.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Yep, hork happens when you least expect it sweet Katie.

  20. OMC I didn't see that coming! I'm sure it WAS accident!
    I like Ruby's salad bar, too. I tend to eat too much though. Did you help grading these papers? His students will love some ow prints :-)
    This is such a cute picture of you! You sure had fun with your brother :-)

  21. Katie, WE know you didn't mean it! Our mom is SO rude! When we start making a certain noise, she pushes us off the bed. Can you believe it? Neither can we.

    Our mom has a tip for your brother. Try grading papers using a dart board. Wherever the dart falls, that is the grade. So much easier and so much faster!

  22. Oh Katie, we know you didn't do that on purpose. Y'know, once I did that right in the middle of the bed. The mom had to get up and clean it all up. She wasn't happy...but she knew I didn't do it on purpose.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oops...that was me, Wally. I forgot to sign my name.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Wow. That was a LOT of paper grading.

    P.S. I love Georgia, but I'm a bit of a ladies' man (shhh..don't tell Georgia), so....I've kind of got a crush on you, too.

  25. What a drag!!! And here you were all cozy, too...

  26. Oh Katie! I just laffed and laffed at your inventiveness--you are my heroine today! I never hork on the bed--or any other furniture. I like to hork only on the floor--I like the feel of solid earth beneath my feet as I feel it gives me the best control of my aim. But ON the bed! ON the clean sheets!!! Well, that's just the best ever. Brava! XOXOXO

  27. MOL! Oh Katie! What a place to hork! You wont believe this, but Star did the same thing to her daddy's spot this weekend! He wasn't there when she did it though but he found it when he went to get in! He was not a happy camper, MOL

  28. Just a thought, Miss Katie, but what if your Mom got into the habit and started grading YOU?!

    #1 says she remember with her first Aby, Ikkyu, who used to throw up a lot, actually flinging him off the bed more than once as he was preparing to grace the bed linens!

  30. Well Katie it happens to the best of us dear heart....if I gobble my kibble too fast it becomes hork piles very soon thereafter. Mom just smiles and cleans it up and onward we go until the next time. Moms are great aren't they???

    Hugs, Sam

  32. Katie, we're awed by your horking style!

    ReplyDelete
  33. "In everybody's life a little horking must fall. I think Shakespeare wrote that.

    ReplyDelete
  34. aiieee!! Katie...I so hate it when I have to hork up something when Mom or Dad are there to see me...ick! And you have the cutest way of standing on your hind legs to play! Sweet!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Wow, sweet Katie your brother sure has a lot of papers to grade. I bet he was glad your mom helped with some of them. You are so cute playing with your brother, we love that tummy picture. Hugs and nose kisses

  37. Even though you, Brother and Mommy had to work on all those papers, it must have been so nice to be all together. :)

    As for the horking, we say good job, sweet Katie. If you're gonna hork, hork BIG, right? ;)

    Hugs!

  39. Hello darling! I came back to tell you the story of BooBoo. Once upon a time, BooBoo, a tiny little kitty who came *long* before me, frowed up a SPECTACULAR barf right on a student's essay. The Human cleaned it up as best she could, let it dry, graded it, and then made a Xerox copy to return to the student with profuse apologies! *I* have never misbehaved myself on any student work, I am pleased to say, because I am a Good Boy. As you know, my sweet. XOXOXOXO

  40. If I need to hork I do it in my dad-persons bed *mol*
    Me too stand on to legs when mom or dad gives me treats :)

    XOXO
