Xylophone anybuddy?


So, it was 1130 PM last night.  Mom had dropped off to sleep.  I had brought in my donkey but I left the room though she did not know that.   She found out however, when she heard me playing the xylophone on the living doom mini blinds. (yes, I bent them)

She shouted at me from the bed but that didn't work.  I had a new song I was composing "Ode to an Outside Animal".  So she threw back the covers, leapt out of the bed and crashed into first: The dresser.   Second: the small cupboard she uses for extra T shirts and jeans.  Third: The door frame.  Then, she made it into the hallway where she went into each room shouting for me to stop it.  I wasn't in any of them.  She turned on the hall light and came into the living room where I was trying to hide under the glass coffee table.  She went into the kitchen, got the spray bottle and liberally sprayed me. I took off for the spare room under the rocking chair and she, to the bed again.  Took awhile for her to fall asleep though.  I DID come to bed later.

Sheesh!

O'Malley the alley cat does similar shenanigans.

Beth said...

Geez! All that commotion over a little blind playing? Humans are nuts!

ANGEL ABBY said...

Katie that was a ruckus! Oh wow the water bottle. YIKES!!!

William said...

Poor Katie! None of us play the blinds but my old sis Olivia used to. Actually, she would bite on them, which made my mom cross too. Me, I don't know what the big deal is.

(Oh, and my mom says Poor Mom and hopes she's OK from the pinball thing.)

Random Felines said...

we hate to say this, but your mom may have to invest in some different blinds if she wants to sleep in peace :)

Oh noooooo! Poor mom! Poor Katie - I bet she has never yelled that loud and hard before.

Oh dear Katie. Mom could have hurt herself. You must be good at night. You and Mom both need your sleep.

Willow said...

Katie doesn't Mom know that you have a big concert coming up. What pep in getting her up.

Loretta Thomas said...

Katie Mom is laughing like crazy... but I not! I jealous, you got to play and I not play!! Mum would scream all the way up the street and back if I wake her from sleeping...
But, hey girlfriend...way to go...high five!!! Meow, Miss Kitty

Yes, I hear the musician's life on tour can be rough sometimes!

Pattyskypants said...

Katie, you gotta let your mom sleep. If she doesn't get enough sleep, she forgets things like litter box cleaning, kitten buffet replenishment, water refreshes and all the other essential functions she performs. Really, you gotta let her sleep, girl!

Angel Keisha said...

How about nap first and then play with the blinds? Everyone wins! :)

Oui Oui said...

Oh my sweet, Katie, I will be there to help you!

Purrs,

Cathy Keisha said...

Hope you got the bed all wet. That will learn her.

The Island Cats said...

We can't believe she didn't appreciate your xylophone playing, Katie.

BeadedTail said...

If only she'd let you continue playing she wouldn't have run into all those things. Moms are weird sometimes.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Wow--I guess she musta never taked Music Appreciation in school, huh? I think she overreacted, Katie, I really really do. But it sounds like she got more beat up than you did, ha ha meow.

Prancer Pie said...

You and Mom sure have a bunch of bedtime adventures! MOL! We hope both of you girls got some rest.

Have a great Thursday. XOXO

Gosh, a budding musician has no chance to practice at your house does she?!

Argh!!
reminds me of when I get up running around looking for the hork I heard or poo I smell :(

Practicing music at night doesn't usually go over well with parents. Try it when she isn't home. ~xo~

Selina said...

Yikes! It's a wonder either of you ever got back to sleep!

Purrz!

OMC!! I did not know you knew how to play an instrument! Pawsome! Too bad the Mom did not appreciate your evening lullaby

BostonBoy said...

We used to have a cat when I was a kid, who would favor us with a tune on the piano in the middle of the night.

Kjelle Bus said...

Typical humans not to appriciate music at night *sigh*
XOXO

It is so sad that your mum doesn't recognise your musical talents Katie.

Rita said...

I know you don't care any more than my Karma would, but Poor Mommy! ;)

La Cabeza Grande said...

Standing up for your mom on this one. I know I don't like it if M makes lots of noise and moves my things. No matter how much she tries to make it up, sometimes I just turn my back on her. I get frustrated too.

Oh K.I., we hate that you got sprayed. Normally we just have to be threatened by the water bottle. We take off so fast that even if one of the humans does spray, we are long gone before they can do it. MOL!
