Tessa Speaks. 2012 © Colehaus Cats

The other day as I was sitting with the Dad, he asked, “Tessa, so how are things going with you today?”

Boy, did I give him an earful! And that got me to thinking. So much un-mentionable stuff goes on around here in our day-to-day lives that Mom never says much about (which is quite the feat for her because she has something to say about E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G.), I figure someone ought to speak up. Plus, she was feeling under the weather for two whole weeks and missed out on a lot!

That’s where I come in! Either from my high perch or one of my many hide-y holes, I see everything…even more than Pia who tattles on everyone!

Like last month, Mom was feeling good about washing down all the corners in all the downstairs rooms just in case there were…um, certain smells if you know what I mean, because someone who shall remain briefly nameless was putting some there and blaming the rest of us. And just as she finished, the one whose name begins with M.A.X.X. must have thought, “This ain’t right,” and well, fixed that erroneous thinkin’. You could hear the tinkling sound for miles, I swear! Ewwww! And now he’s banished to the big upstairs room that couldn’t possibly have anything to do with punishment because we all know the good toys and servants and treats reside in there! Unfair!

Oh, and Quint had to have not one or two, but three pieces of string taken away from him last week causing Mom to wonder where on Earth he was getting them. MOL! The Princess Pillow, silly Mom! It has long, dangly and very tempting fringe on it! Well, she took that pillow away and now, no one knows where it’s hiding. *sad ears*

Speaking of dangling things, little sister Pia, please, check that floofy tail of yours coming from the box a wee bit more often, okay? Like berries. Little bitty brown berries…maybe it’s because of all the bugs you claim to eat. Ha! See? I warned you that if you tattled on me, I’d tattle back! THERE ARE NO SECRETS! PHFFFFT!

Got no complaints about the sweet dark one. Olivia’s a peach. Good snuggling buddy. She’ll always have my back. Plus, she’s got secret tabby stripes just like me! Shhh, don’t tell Mom. She’s always whipping out that flashy box thing to prove this, that or the next thing.

Big brother Seth, well, I’ve been here since May and I still can’t get a bead on him at all. Mysterious. Drapey. And never gets into trouble. Where’s the fun there? And always napping, not that I don’t enjoy a good long nap too. It’s just, he has two special, toasty-warm sleeping places that no one, and I mean, NO ONE cares to investigate and claim for themselves. It’s odd.

Tussle Partners.

Angelic Tussle Partners. Yeah, right.

And then there’s Newton, also known sometimes as Miss Newton. Funny, I’m never called MISS Tessa. Anyway, we’re purr-fect tussling angels and as long as the Dad gives her an hour a day and Mom stops with her incessant clickity-clicking on that laptop lapwarmer and gives me my hour a day, we’ll stay that way.

Well, that’s all I can remember for now. Hope you enjoyed hearing about the un-mentionables! Until next time, Tessa, a.k.a. Danger Cat out!

  1. No one has any secrets now! One of my cats doesn’t always check that he’s got the right part of him in the box – there’s no point in standing with just his front legs in there!

  2. That’s quite a bit of tattling for one day, Tessa! Hahaha! Though we must admit we did enjoy it. 🙂

  3. There’s a “narc” in every family MOL

  4. Tittle tattle. BOL someone is always ratting on me. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  5. ha ha ha ha!!! It’s always so much fun to learn the sordid backstories…we don’t feel so alone!

  6. Oh Tessa, thanks for keeping us posted on all those “naughty” kitties in your house, we know you and Olivia are little angels. (wink,wink).
    Harry, Dexter and Tipp

  7. WE have a lot of the same un-mentionables here in this family including finding those smelly places. Too funny. Love hearing all about your family. Have a great day.

    • So, yeah, what’s with making the smells? Maxx won’t tell. He prefers to growl over spilling the beans. OH! I forgot to mention the spilling of the beans! And I hardly had anything to do with that mess! Have a great week! Purrs…

    my stars tessa,

    I could tattle about my brother boomer or the equally stupid cousins tuna N sauce but truth be told I fear retaliation as I am the only girl….. I will say all three of them are descendants of hogs and I believe with every fiber of my being they truly ARE hogs, disguised as cats because how can three boys be so ….ugh……

    hugs girl from dai$y, queen of cats, royalty of trout towne

    • I feel for your situation, being the only girl and all. Maybe someone could do something about that? You need an ally, girl! Purrs for a great week ahead of you!

  9. Wow, you really do know everything!

  10. You kitties are a busy bunch, aren’t you!

  11. Sometimes tinkling happens and it’s great to have someone to blame. xoxoxo

    • I don’t think tinkling was supposed to happen there. I mean, a dog could tinkle like that and get away with it. Not meaning to insult dogs – we like ’em! Maxx was being something Mom called, “spiteful.” I don’t think that’s a good thing. But whew! I sure am glad I didn’t get blamed! Purrs….

  12. Thanks for bringing us all up to date. We also went over to admire Quint’s work. Lovely paintings.

    Have a great evening.

    hugs, Max, Bugsy, and Knuckles

  13. Oh Tessa, that was quite the repurrt and thanks for giving us the inside scoop!

  14. Well, that certainly sounds like the long and the short of it, MISS Tessa!!!

    The Chans

  15. Well that certainly oiled the gossip wheels!! We will be able to keep going for quite a while now!!! 😉

  16. Oh we don’t have any secrets around here either Tessa.
    If we did, one of us would tell it all on the other.

  17. Wow, it certainly pays off to keep still and keep your eyes open, Tessa! You have gathered a wealth of information. PURRhaps you should apply to become a professional undercover investiCATor!

  18. Jasper our cat loves to give us an earful of all the happenings. Cats are good at that.

  19. The only one I have to tattle on is Glogirly. …and Gloman never buys my side of the story.
    ; ) Katie

  20. Wow, Tessa, you certainly are, uh … informative. Maybe you could start your own gossip column!

  21. What a great report! Brava! Too bad about that pillow.

  22. Tessa, darling, do you work for the Felinenquirer? Sheesh! I’m glad you don’t live with ME!!!

  23. Hmmm . . . we learned all kinds of little secrets! Julie gets some unmentionables stuck in her furs too. You can look at her face, but not under her tail. We gave you an award, if you’d like to pick it up.

  24. Wow what an awesome bunch of kitties! And Tessa, you are very purrty if I might add. Thanks for visiting today!

  25. Mom laughed a little at the “corners” thing. Tamir had a special love for certain corners too!! Lots of stuff goes on at your house!!

    The Florida Furkids

  26. You certainly know how to dish the dirt! We enjoyed hearing about the unmentionables.

  27. Tessa, I loved how you told us everything! And you’re a cutie on top of it =^.^=

  28. umm…Tessa…actually, Miss Tessa…could even be “Princess Tessa”…you really know how to dish gurlfurriend! And the brown dingle berries…ewwwww…I, of course, do none of those things. But my before me brother named Popcorn, he used to enjoy tinkling right down the drain in the bar sink, he really had good aim too…just a comment, paw pats, Savannah
