Why Mudpie Was Threatened With Eviction

Meows from Mudpie!

Over the weekend I mentioned that I found myself in a bit of trouble recently to where I ended up being threatened with eviction! A few of you guessed that it may have had something to do with Mommy's Conway collection, which I find really funny because it's obvious everyone understands where her priorities lie!

This summer Mommy bought a portable Victrola record player as an early birthday gift to herself. (Now she's eyeing a Victrola CD player shaped like a jukebox.) She decided to put it on a bureau in our bedroom surrounded by a bunch of her Conway collectibles and wall of photos. One night last week she was getting ready for bed, heard a noise, and turned around to find this.

Something wrong, Mommy? 

She didn't yell (much) or try to make me get down out of fear that I would wipe something out (my "wide load" was mentioned), but she wasn't happy and watched me like a hawk. Each day since I've hopped up there and given Mommy heart failure, but she does admit that I'm not a bull in a china shop and I step pretty carefully. Hey, I value my life!!!

I think I've come up with a credible story to get me out of trouble though. Did you notice the piece of cloth between me and the record player? It's a scarf that was sold at his concerts with his picture on it and the words I'd Love to Lay You Down, the title of one of his biggest songs.


I heard that when he would perform that song in concert women would throw blankets on stage as a not-so-subtle invitation. (Mommy is far from alone in her belief that he was the sexiest man to ever walk the planet.) Well, brilliant little tortie that I am, I'm just doing what the scarf says...I'm laying down on it!

So for the time being we've arrived at a truce...Mommy lets me do my thing as long as I step very, very carefully. But if anything tragic "happens" to anything in her collection, I still may be looking for some new digs!

  1. I think that spot was made for you, Mudpie! And it proves that you are just as much a Conway fan as your human.

  4. That pink record player looks purrfect with a pretty tortie lying on it, if you ask us. You know, Mudpie, a certainly girl cat named Eddy is also known for tiptoeing amongst precious knickknacks. The human here often futilely believes her collectibles are out of a certain kitty's reach, but she is always very, very wrong. All of that being said, if you do get evicted, Mudpie, head our way! You can be our roomie. Purrs!

  8. I understand what you're trying to tell her - you want her to devote an entire wall to everything Mudpie. That seems like a very reasonable request to me. Surely Mr. Conway can't have every wall! Tee hee hee. Kisses and luvs. -Valentine (& Mom) of Noir Kitty Mews

  13. Mudpie, your mommy would never evict you, but if she did, you could come live here. You and Pita could get into mischief together. She always says she wants a partner in crime.

  20. My Tinkerbell would jump up on top of the kitchen cabinets, the ones on the wall. To this day we still don't know how she managed to get her "wide load" up there lol.
