Tessa Trouble.

We were upstairs, as usual. Our upstairs sees a lot more of us than downstairs. Most of the kitties stay in the same general vicinity as where we’re working when all of a sudden from downstairs, we hear a loud growl, a thud, some scrambling and a whole lot of nails trying to gain traction on the floor. We look at each other.

“Who’s downstairs?” we call out and start a head count of cats on nearby chairs, the desk and rug. “Quint, Olivia, Miss Newton, Pia and with Ruby and Maxx in our bedroom, that leaves just…”

  1. It always gets our humans’ attention when they hear a “cat fit” on a floor other then the one they currently occupy. It is such fun to force them to get up and see what has happened. And thuds are the best attention getters. Good job Tessa!

  2. Maybe Tessa deaded the large mousie.

  3. When a big mousie gives you lip, you have to take care of him. Next time be a little more quiet, Tessa. That way your humans won’t know what you’re doing. 🙂
