Tortie Queen of Box Mountain

Meows from Mudpie!

You may remember that on Sunday I took my selfie from a secret location and I promised you the deets...


Last week we had to have our water heater replaced. (For anyone keeping track, that's the furnace, water heater, cable box, toaster oven, kitchen counter lighting, and cell phone that have all been replaced in the past 6 weeks. It would be cheaper just to buy a new house at this point.) In the process of shuffling crap stuff around to give the plumbers room to install it, this mountain of boxes erupted and I could hardly wait to climb on top and survey my kingdom!


Would you believe Mommy told me not to get too attached to my new playground because the majority of what's in those boxes is either going to the dump or Goodwill? And sure enough, less than a week later 75% of the boxes are already gone!!! (When Mommy gets motivated to trash stuff she doesn't mess around!) Good thing I had fun while it lasted.


You might be wondering how I handled yet another home invasion by workmen. When they got here I met them at the door and Mommy told them I don't go outside. They were really careful to make sure the doors were shut behind them each time they went in and out, but in the process of their closing doors I ended up getting shut down in the basement...with them and no Mommy! All of a sudden she could hear me screaming and traced the tortie hollers to the top basement stair as I yelled for help. Thankfully that was the extent of the drama that day.

We hope you'll join us on Friday for this month's edition of the Pet Photo Fails! I have a few more blurry outtakes to share from my basement adventure.

The basement is fun... until you get stuck down there and can't get out! Am I right?

I'm sorry you got stuck in the basement, Mudpie, but good on the plumbers to be so careful with the doors!

Brian said...

That's a bit scary sweet Mudpie but that stack does look like fun!

Patricia T said...

Sorry you lost your box mountain, Mudpie. I’m glad Mommy “rescued” you from the basement. :)

Rene said...

Wow, your mom sure has had a lot of expenses lately! We hope things settle down soon.

Bernadette said...

Basements are magical places! Once all these replacements are done it will all be over for a while and you can both enjoy the quiet.

Mudpie, no kitties are allowed in our basement, 'cause they'll never come back! Too many weird hidey holes, and it cannot be healthy for anyone down there! Here's hoping there are no more workers in your house for a long time to come!

Oh my - y'all have a lot hitting you lately - I love your 'Tortie Queen of Box Mountain' title and pics - MOL! You are such a doll Mudpie.

At our house Stranger Danger is huge! The moment someone who doesn't smell right enters our home, we scatter in eleventy billion directions. Except Herman and Frank...and Candy who all have confidence in excess. But not me, Dori. I hide under the bed and put my paws over my cute lil face so nobody can see me. So glad you got out of the basement without further trauma!

That's a great box mountain but it's a pity it didn't last. I am glad you were rescued from the basement.

That sounds like quite an adventure.

Cathy Keisha said...

Now she owes you a cat tree the height of those boxes.

meowmeowmans said...

That basement adventure sounds kinda fun and scary at the same time, Mudpie! So, are you telling us that box mountain is gone??? Boo...

The Swiss Cats said...

I love to play in the basement, it's so much fun ! But it happened once or twice that I got stuck over there, that's less fun... Purrs, Pixie

If it incites an indoor cat to run, jump & climb, it might be worth leaving in the house.

All three of my cats have put on a little weight this winter, but their ribs are still easy to feel.

The Menagerie Mom said...

You got locked in the basement with strange men AND your boxes were taken away, Mudpie?!? The horror! But, at least we get some bloopers out of it tomorrow!

Lola The Rescued Cat said...

Why is it that humans must throw away the most glorious boxes? Do they have an aversion to them? It baffles me.
Love,
Lexy

I'm glad your mommy was able to rescue you from the basement!
