Dogageddon is upon Us

The hour is near.

Until treaties are affirmed, the gates are up.

We await Dogadeddon.

Cat looking forward at you. (© image, copyrighted, all rights reserved, NO permissions granted)

Was it not enough that Our Personal Staff was stolen from Us loaned to Ella’s realm for such a long time ?.(© image)

Mousies have been gathered into safe sanctuary.

Trimmed for the duration, cat grass has moved to the shelter of a barrier protected sunny window in Our sweet of rooms in the back.

Honoring the Realm Mutual Aid Agreement, We have sputtered and spit without results graciously agreed to offer Person’s dog, Ella, a tourist visa while her home is being painted and readied to be listed for sale.

However, We have heard it said that a dog makes a house a home and attractive to families. So it seems to follow that a herd of dogs should make a house attractive as a clan compound.  What says “welcome” more than three giant dog crates? Should make the house stand out among the others to buyers.

Ella, being a previous guest, was a whole lot better than being invaded by her wild and crazy bachelor housemates has stayed for sleepovers before.

Normally, We insist on the Rule of Fishy Stink, but in this case We were unable to pound into Staff’s heads the chaos potential benevolently offer an extended stay as it is a poor one in transit to a better better be far away life.

The arrival of a friend will thrill the Molly for about 2 hours, then it’s snarly time and get that attention thief outta here who has spent endless days of boredom with all the rain alternating with excessive heat.

We have advised her to stash her toys in Our sweet of rooms where they will be safe from unauthorized mouthing.

In addition Staff has been advised to throw the throw pillows in the back, also. There have been worrisome rumors of ugly rip tries around couch accessories.

The hour draws near. Prey for Us: they say one can order anything off Amazon. Butterflies would prove an amusing distraction.(USPD/

Final preparations are in progress.

Arm loads of towels are stacked by both front and back doors as tropical rains are expected this week.

We have suggested to Staff that some fleece booties might be appropriate so those responsible for the muddy floors could be part of a Work-Study type program to learn the marketable skill of cleaning floors and justify their existence gain esteem from being productive members of society.

Our Personal Staff seems too glassy eyed out of fear occupied to absorb Our suggestions.

We shall attempt to have Staff keep Realm business and correspondence done in a timely fashion but expect, as usual, that those lumbering woofers will demand far too much of Staff’s time and patience.

Commiseration in the form of tribute shall be looked upon kindly.

Sadly this audience must come to a close as We make final rounds before the onslaught of overly excited paws.


And don’t forget to leave your tribute of an open can of food in the doorway.

Our paw has waved. 

And We wait your compassionate sympathy.

FYI: Small lizards are equally favored So many places deliver now…

Dogagdeddon is upon Us.

Adieu, mon Chère

Take Our sound advice and make a run for it before that dog transport box swings open that door. We yowl for a reason!)

I am RC Cat and I approve this message.

    Wait. What? Tropical rains this week? Where have I been? Better question: where are you all going to be if rain keeps everyone indoors for a week? Why does the phrase “runs me nuts” come to mind. Cheerio, and good luck!

      RC Cat. “We can assure you there will be no hunkering down. Regents do not hunker down. Prudence may require recons be done in the middle of the night when the Ella invader sleeps, but We shall keep a stiff upper lip and a firm paw raised just in case of insubordination.
      We are pondering how to get Our lovely grass out to the showers for a bath – nothing like tropical bath time..even if early in the season.
      Greatly appreciate your suggestion of nuts – possibly the grocery store will deliver?
      A vigilant paw wave in thanks “

    Yikes! Four ginorous dogs? Over 200 pounds of pawhood? Blessings. Perhaps some Xanax is better. Can’t wait to hear of the shenanigans that go on. Peace to RC.

      RC Cat. “if the Molly alone weighs 85 lbs…Oh, math is not Our strong collar. We may be getting on the elderly side and small in stature but not brain befuddled. A tourists visa was only issued to Ella. Those rambunctious boys are elsewhere while the painters and carpet cleaners are at their realm. After a period of joyous dog jousting, both the Molly and Ella are in front of the tv under the ceiling fan. They have twin beds…only it’s easy to tell Molly’s as there are patches and sewn shut ripped spots. We are pleased to see that Ella at least respects and treasures her bed…perhaps she can be a role model. We graciously accept your kind words and shall endeavor to send reports as the week goes on.
      A brave reassuring paw wave is sent.”

    Oh my! I think you’ve given some great advice to the staff and to Molly. Why, oh why, can’t they ever figure out that you know best?

    The good news is eventually the visa will expire and the interloper will have to leave. Then you can rule over your kingdom the way you want.

      RC Cat. “We are miffed today as Staff has said ‘No, you are not taking a vacation cruise until it’s over’. Working on plan B now…So appreciative of your kind words. A grateful paw salute waved in your direction! I know, you are overwhelmed. Yes, you may tell your friends of this honor.”

      RC Cat “Ah Sir Rowdy, your kindness has touched Us. Please excuse Our brief response as We must prepare to retreat to Our fleecy loft in the closet for the duration of the Night of the Bang-bangs.Some fool behind Us started early last night – at 1:30 am. No doubt they have replenished their noisy stash for tonight. Take care, RK, We shall chat at more length at another time”

    I think it’s time that Ella led a revolt , Methinks RC cat’s been watching too much Fox news and that occupant of the Oval Office.

      RC Cat “A delighted paw wave to CoCo and Staff. And a chuckle. AS RC of a Realm We have little time or patience for what passes as news these dazes. A short glimpse at one of the business channels gives us al we really care about….We can discern just how many cans of tuna We should request Staff purchase each week. The important thing – none of that hyper over the top foolish emotional opinion nonsense. We do tutor the Molly in such as she is RC-in-training. Ella at this point is in exile from her realm…although staff says that’s not true. Bah. We await proof of her plans of return.Take care, Coco…you must be the master of the new sources of your realm! A paw salute in solidarity.”

        ‘I rule the house quietly and seductively RC Cat I get all I want plus and I aim to keep going just as I am but I thank you and will take notice of your advice.

        Coco get off my computer or no treats for the next hour!
