It was an outrage! A Horrible outrage!

KITTIES!  It was awful! It was a terrible horrible bad bad outrage!  It shouldn't  happen to a woofie!

I was lying in a very warm and bright sunpuddle at my own front door which was open so that I could gaze contentedly at the daffodils and hyacinths and watch Birdy TV.  It was a quiet, nothing moving kind of day and I was there, cat loaf position, eyes relaxed and just humming to myself.

Then, that Maine Coon tabby, gorgeous though he is, came straight up to ME on the front porch.  He did.  The solid NERVE! Kitties!  Only the depth of the door glass separated us.  He could have done heinous things to me and to my mom if I had not risen to the occasion once again and protected her!

She was in the computer room, but she heard me leaping up the door glass and growling.  By the time she rose and came in to see what was the matter, she saw Mr. Handsome standing there and I quote her, that she claims I was glaring at that show-off while I was in full scream and spit mode  He, on the other hand just stood there interestedly as I read him his full pedigree and antecedents as well as probable relationships with various entities which shall not be re-screamed and spat out now as the moment has passed.

Kitties, I looked over my shoulder and say mom LEAVING!  She came back with calming spray (HA!  As if!!!) and started inching the heavy wooden door closed, a millimeter at a time until I was forced to back away.  Then, she closed the door and walked off like nothing happened despite I saved her from untold terrible bad bad awful things!

I may seek a replacement mom.  I won't countenance this!

  1. Wow, Katie. Thank COD you were so strong and brave against that cheeky Maine Coon introoder! As for Mom not being a little more appreciative, there simply MUST be a reason for it. We wonder what that could be?

    Hugs!

  2. Knowing how big those Maine Coon cats can be, and how petite and sweet you are, it doesn't sound like a fair matchup. Your mom should have reacted in more dramatic fashion. Sheesh! Sounds like she sniffed in some of the calming spray herself!

  3. Well, that was pretty nervy of that big ol' Maine Coon to come right up to you, Katie. You obviously gave him what for!

  4. Oh Katie san, I'm sorry Mr. Handsome disturbed your nice relaxing time! Sounds like your mom handled the situation with much calmness. It's a good thing while I understand you may be thinking about replacement mom, hahaha :-)

  5. I bet you wouldn't act like that if it were *ME* at your door, hee hee hee. Hi darling The Human is finally cooperating with me -- a little. Very little to be honest. And can you believe she is leaving town AGAIN tomorrow? Oh she says it is only for the day and that she'll be home tomorrow night, but frankly my patience and credulity are wearing thin, yes they are. Shall I come over and hang out at your door? XOXOXO

  6. Oh poor darling Katie! How dare that big brute come and flirt with you through the door!

    Leo says: What's that? No way! He did NOT come and try to look at you again! You, Katie, were very brave and ferocious! But you shouldn't have to be! That brat cat should not be trying to come that close to you, ever! Um, shall I come over and help you keep watch? I could bring you some treats, all for you.

  7. Well, maybe Mr. Handsome got the message this time that you are NOT interested! As for your Mom closing the door and spraying that calming spray stuff - I'm glad she shut the door so you wouldn't be subjected to that flirt, BUTTTT the spray? Oh no not the spray!!!

    Hugs, Sammy

  8. Hehe! I bet that Maine Coon had no idea his ancestry was so interesting!! Handsome Welsh tuxies wouldn't get the full scream and spit treatment, I know!! ;) xoxox

    PeeEss Replacement moms are hard to find. I know, I've been looking for eight years!

  9. Ungrateful! Here you are - working like a DOG (excuse the expression) to protect your family, and there is no appreciation. I have the same situation when I protect Mom from the mailman every day. No gratitude for my efforts. Humans. Ugh.

    Love and licks,

  10. You and Da Beebs definitely have the same opinion of intruders, Miss Katie.Da Genj on the other hand, is ready to make friends with everyone!

  11. Way to go, Katie! You have to protect your humans from dangerous intruders. That cat will be afraid to come near your house from now on.

  12. He may have been drawn to your beauty, dear Katie, but that was some nerve of him to come right up to your door! As if he owned the joint. It is YOURS and you have very right to be on the defense. Your mommy was being what the human call non-reactive to your intense calling out of the handsome interloper's antecedents.

    She wanted to help. Although you may think she went about defending your honor in the wrong way, she really did cuz she loves you. Keep your mommy, sisfur.

  13. Oh No Katie, but he might be a nice guy. Did he growl at you??? Sorry he scared you. But the Mom was smart to just close the door.

  14. GASP! Ebil introoders are the WORST! Doesn't he know that is YOUR space and YOUR mom???

  15. Oh, Katie! It looks like you've got a stalker! We will come over to purr-tect you, just say the word.
    What's that, Trixie? Oh - Trixie says Mr Handsome must be really stuck on you, to keep coming back after you've made it so plain you aren't interested.

  16. Look at it this way Katie...that Maine Coon probably has to go out in icky weather to do certain things. Would you want to go out in icky weather?

  17. The nerve of that kitteh!!! What an injustice you've had!
    We do hope your nerves aren't too rattled and Monday brings a much better day.

  19. The nerve of that intruder! I am very glad you told him his exact pedigree or lack of it. I can see I need to come back and have very strong words with him. Have you had any more problems with the ginger I "spoke" to on your behalf?

  20. Were sure sorry that Maine is such a pain for you sweet Katie.

  21. Gasp! Not again! I think he needs to be taught a lesson or two and I'm mancat enough to do it too (flexes muscles). You'll never find a new mom sweetie. Like Austin, I've been looking for about 8+ years myself and no one has applied for the position. Good help is hard to get these days.

  22. You are a brave kitty to protect your Mom. Spooky wishes he was there to protect you. Thank you for displaying his badge. XO

  23. Darn that kitty! But we kind of understand how he might want to make furriends with a beautiful girl kitty like you.

    But good on you for showing him who is boss of your house.

  29. Dearest Katie-Isabella,
    Wow, you had quite an adventure and so glad you were on the safe side of that glass door! Just imagine what that big Maine Coon could have done to you or your Mom!
    Sad that she is not fully recognizing what you accomplished there; all by yourself!
    Our kitties were growling inside the garage this evening when Pieter went to close the garage door shut for the night. What had happened? A new, unfamiliar cat, a kind of a Russian blue was INSIDE the garage! Oh, how mad our kitties were. We doubt that this was one of their friends... Always something to happen.
    Friday a huge hot air balloon that landed and made all six babies disappear to God knows where. Two were missing at midnight and luckily all six came for breakfast.
    One never knows what kind of danger lurks around the house...
    Hugs and wishing you calm days ahead with sunshine for basking in.

  30. Uh-oh...it is scary to be threatened in your own home. Maine Coons can be very tough and intimidating. But, they can also be very sweet and cuddly. I have known and loved a few.XO
