Pia Scratches

No More Computer Playing for You.

Mom: All right. Who scratched up my laptop? C’mon, ‘fess up, you cats. Don’t make me go all CSI on the lot of you to figure it out. Who did it?

Pia: Mom, dearest, gentle, non-judgmental Mom, it is I, Pia, your sweetest, little orange girl whom you sought out to fill the ginger-shaped void in your broken heart, who cannot lie and must confess that this dasteredly deed, this infringement of your property and vandalism in the worst way, I’m compelled, no, I’m driven to admit, it was my big sister, Miss Newton.

Wasn't Me, Newton Says.

Miss Newton: What?!? Wasn’t me, I swear! Leave me out of this.

Mom: Pia, are you telling fibs?

Pia: No…well, no, um, technically maybe not, uh…

Who Me?

Tessa: Mom, look, it was me. I’m sorry. I was gonna say something about the scratches but in all the excitement of Pia’s storytelling, it slipped my mind. I swear, it was unintentional. I was stretching and stretching and somehow, your laptop just got in the way and well, there it is. Won’t happen again. I bet we’ll all feel better after a good nap.

Pia: Oh, I agree!

Mom: Okay, no more computer time for you. You either, Pia. Now go make up with your sister Newton. You owe her.

  1. Cute Pia! You are such a tattle tale, but you are so adorable that you get away with it.

  2. Sooo cute! I bet Mom won’t be mad at you for long!

    • You’re absolutely right. In fact, right after Tessa confessed (hey, that sort of rhymes – Tessa, confessa…she should confess to everything!), Mom took more pictures and then scooped me up and planted a dozen kisses on my belly. She can’t stay mad around me!

  3. Hey, a purrsonalized laptop might become the latest fashion statement!

  4. I don’t see anything wrong with a few scratches on the laptop – it’s like having it pawtographed!

  5. Oh dear. Touching the laptop is a big no no here. Makes blogging difficult.

  6. MOL scratches are ok, but fur gumming up the keyboard is a whole other matter!! 🙂

  7. Uh, you know whose fault it really is, don’t you? YOUR MOM’S, that’s who!! If she is SO careless as to leave the laptop open for AnyKitty to use as an emergency scratching post, then honestly, why is she even surprised??

    Thanks for coming by today. I’m ashamed I let the Human touch my foods. I couldn’t help myself. They were so TASTY.

  8. Oh no! Sorry about the scratches. 🙁

    But cute photos. 🙂

    I love the one of Newton yawning.



  9. Precious kitties! Happy Wordless Wednesday; thanks for hopping!

  10. Pia you’re one cool cat and I liked your story telling! Wagging wordless Wednesday.

  11. Paws up from Wordless Wednesday. Kitties love the keyboards, books, or whatever is distracting you from them. They want attention when they want it.

  12. We wanted to say something about gorgeous Geoffrey. For seven years our feral Domino refused to come inside and lived on our porch. He had a electric blanket etc. Finally last year, he decided he was ready to be an indoor/outdoor cat and is now a lap cat!

    • We’re hoping Geoffrey will be the same as was one of our departed ferals, Old Man Skitters, who refused for eight years to come live inside. But once he did, he was just the best cat. We’ve only known of Geoffrey for three years; friends enough to touch and pet him for just over a year. We look out for him twice a day, every single day and think that someday, when he’s ready, he’ll make an awesome lap cat too! Thank you for your comment and for looking out for the ferals!

  13. Tessa is an honest, honorable cat. How can someone be upset with a cat who told the truth when a lie would have been easier? Pia, are you listening?

  14. It gives the laptop a fine patina, “aged properly”, character even! And Pia’s storytelling skills are impressive!

    • Yeah, Pia’s a storyteller, all righty. And a tattletale too if you hadn’t noticed! No one gets away with much around here with her nose in everything! LOL! Thank you for visiting us!
