All Hail The Queen of Slink

Meowllo everypawdy, hope you had a great weekend. It’s another Miserable Monday here and let me tell you, we sure had a storm last night. Ya know da skies have been gray and sunless furever now, but at least da rains have been quiet da last few days. And then outta nowhere last night da thunder and lightnin’ started up and scared da b-jeebies outta me.

 Dezi cocks head to the side in thought

There we was, layin’ in bed all cuddled up da way mommy and me do. Ya’ know mommy can’t sleep without a kitty cuddled up next to her purrin’ her a lullaby. And me and sis Lexi used to purr in unison. Mommy says it was kinda like havin’ a vibratin’ bed. Anyways, me’s getting’ off track here, let’s get back to da storm of da century. So there we was all cuddled up and suddenly, BOOM gRrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrUMBLE It was so loud even mommy jumped. Me couldn’t slink or scamper off da bed and under it fast enuff. But me had purrlenty of light to see by, cuz lightnin’ came through da black bedroom curtains and lit up da whole room. Well mommy began to coo at me from atop da bed while me shook in me’s fur under da bed. She wanted me back up on da bed with her. Like dat was gonna happen. As long as da sky was grumblin’, me was gonna stay put……….safely UTB (under the bed). Mommy calls me da Queen of Slink. She says fur a big kitty me can sure flatten out fast enuff.

Now let me tell you somethin’ you may not know about me’s mommy. She’s a clever one. She doesn’t like to take no fur an answer and won’t ifin she can help it. So there me was shakin’ in me’s fur and mommy’s cooin’ and nothing’s happening. So she begins to whine. You know, “Dezi, I Neeeeeeeed you. Baby, I can’t sleep without you. Dezi, it’s okay, I won’t let anything or anybody hurt you, come on back up here on the bed with mommy.” Yeah, just how did she plan on purrtectin’ me while she slept? Was she gonna snore dat storm away? Me wasn’t goin’ anywhere. UTB was just fine with me.

After what seemed like furever me heard mommy softly snifflin’. Hmmmmm Me cocked me’s head and thought a minute. Somethin’ must be wrong. Mommy’s cryin’. So me made da decision to go and check on her. Me bravely crouched low to da ground and slinked out from under da bed and looked up from da floor. Me couldn’t see a thing. So me hurried up da steps and jumped over to mommy’s chest and stuck me’s face in hers. Meow? What’s wrong mommy, me asked. ‘Tween da sniffles mommy went on about how sis Lexi wouldn’t have left her alone just cuz of some storm and how me has to be her big girl now, and how she neeeeeeds me and luuuuuuvs me and would never let me go. Me lissened intently and purred luvvingly. And then when da next thunder boomer hit…………me scurried back UTB. From me’s spot UTB me meowed to mommy, “Remember mommy, me’s da Queen of Slink and…me Ain’t sis Lexi.”

Me’s gotta make sure dat ole storm didn’t mess with me’s tree.

We didn’t get much sleep last night, but fur now da storm has ended and it’s quietly mistin’ so me’s out hangin’ with mommy and makin’ her happy. We’ll be by to see you all just as soon as we can. And mommy wants me to say thank you to everypawdy. She feels better knowin’ she’s not so old fashioned after all. It’s been a long time since she applied fur a job so she didn’t know ifin things had changed or not.

Where do you (your kitties) hide when thunder boomers start?

Do you (your kitties) hide during loud events like thunder storms?

 

 

Till da next time…………………………………..Be Blest!!!

 

 

Luv and Hugs and Kitty Kisses

  • ThunderBOOMIES are never good, but those sudden ones are the WORSE! TBT says that means they are right over our house an thats the LAST place we want them. Normally Boomies make us hold onto TBT tighter (with claws) but when they are TOO close, we run unner the bed.

  • Oh, Dezi, I wish we could send you some of the sunshine we’ve (finally) been having. I sure hope all those storms let up for you and your mom soon. We’ll purr and pray that you get to the see the sun real soon!

    (P.S. So your mom is pretty good at the sniffling tactic, Dezi? One of my childhood pups would fall for that every time. A little sniffle, and he’d come running.)

  • We could use some of your rain here, but we will pass on the storm part…
    We hide under the couch when needed…or we cower in a dark corner. Meowmy’s first kitty jumped behind the hutch in the dining room…which one time resulted in a broken mantle clock when he jumped back out of there…meowmy was at work when that happened and she came home to a house still standing after severe weather, but broken stuff inside, OMC!
