Still not speaking to you, Mom.

“But you are speaking to me, sweetie. You’re telling me you’re holding a grudge and that’s not healthy.”

I’m NOT speaking….I’m….singing! LA-LA-LA-LA, I CAN’T HEAR YOU, LA-LA-LA…

“Okay, fine. Do what you want. If I’m so horrible, I won’t bother you. Nope, I’ll just mosey along and leave you to dwell on something that happened weeks ago and as I recall, you seemed to get over rather quickly. Yep, just me and these Greenie treats leaving the room now.”

  1. We missed to V-E-T post about Tessa on the 1st. That was the day our humans were trying to get home from our last trip. Those were some antics. Even our Lily, at her worst, hasn’t carried on like that. Mom has probably mentioned that you might try for the V-E-T to visit you at home for the yearly stuff if you have efurrybuddy close to the same schedule. It saves a lot on your nerves and shredded skin. Tessa’s face in that final photo is priceless! And all it took were a few Greenies. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  2. We’re glad you got that worked out! Treats change everything!

  3. We’re so pleased to treats made you feel more chipper Tessa!
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  4. Tessa,
    You must put all the icky stuff behind you and concentrate on treats. You have such an expressive face and we just know that your human melts when she looks at you and then she feels obligated to give you even more treats. That’s how we work it! 😉

  5. Even just the sound of treats brings the ears up around here!

  6. oh that was great!!!!! The last photo and that expression? PURRFECT!

  7. LOL, pawsome photos!

  8. Foodables always have a way of making us forget our “mads” too! MOL!

  9. Ha ha Tessa. Never ignore the hand with food or treat. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  14. MOL. Nothing like Greenies to make the grumps go away!

  15. Treats have a way of making you see things from a different purrspective. But only until they run out.

  16. Yeah, Greenies get me every time too!

  17. Ah treats are usually the cure for a cold shoulder :-0

  18. treat make it all better! I had to go to the vet today too!xx Speedy

  19. Funny how the word “Greenies” can so totally capture our attention isn’t it??????

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  20. Greenies do it every time, right Tessa? 🙂

  21. Yep! Treats always have a way of making a kitty with a grudge come around. MOL.

  22. If you are given treats you can forgive most things 🙂

  23. Nothing like Greenies to make you forget your troubles.

  24. Nothing like a Greenie to make one feel chipper!!

  25. Tessa darling, you have to live in the moment. I do and treats help. How is Quint? I ask because my mom is just a simpering idjit over him.

    • Our brother Quint hogs the couch when he naps which is most of the afternoon like a beach bum all sprawled out with his long, long legs everywhere and lemur tail struck straight out. Undignified, we say. He yawns, sniffs our direction and says, “Quiet, you. I’m sleeping.” Then more napping. Our Mom says that’s cute. We think that’s crazy-talk!

  26. Amei a sua expressão Tessa!
    Penso que agora você voltou a conversar com sua mamãe hehehe

  27. Oh, Tessa, what an expression in that last photo. Treats make everything better, don’t they?

  28. Wow, Tessa! I has the impressed. Do you know that the last two times I went to the vet they had to GAS ME just to get me out of the carrier to examine me? I am proud to know you, my soul sister.

  29. I would have to bury the hatchet for treats..MOL Have a wonderful weekend xx00xx

    Mollie and Alfie

  30. Of course treats make everything much better! They are the way to our hearts.

  31. Aw cat, they ALWAYS do that – mess up a perfectly good grump by dangling a treat – or a wand toy… *sigh*

  32. Beautiful cat meowwwww

  33. hee hee! you don’t want to stay mad when treats are involved, right Tessa?

    Pip, Smidgen, Minnie, Hollie

  34. It’s amazing how Greenies solve the Sulkies!

  35. Very interesting there Tessa. If you got treats then maybe all that hissy fitting was worth it. The scuttle-flea around here is that it is that time at the Tomcat Home. Dad may want to take us all at once but…
    Thanks Tessa
