We Deny All Charges

Since Blogger has just restored this post (minus the comments) after having been down since yesterday and readers have not been able to access blogs, we decided to re-post this for today. Otherwise our follow-up post will make no sense.

Yep, it's me, Rusty. I am hoping if I post a funny video, Jan will smile. She's not in a very good mood the last few days. Between being under the weather, and sweating buckets while trying to get the house ready for summer, and ....

Oh, yeah, something about us furries beating her up and trying to kill her.

We categorically deny all charges! And there are no pictures, so no proof!

I want to go out and Jan hasn't been letting me lately. So I try to dash past her whenever she lets the dogs out the back door. It wasn't my fault she didn't turn on the light at 3 am this morning. If she had, she'd have known better than to throw her foot out to make a barrier. Yep, her bare toes scraped the car ramp which wasn't supposed to be sticking out there. Just because I like to move it once in a while doesn't mean her injury was my fault.

But I'm a poster boy compared to Buddy. He's been wreaking havoc on the house since Jan put a cone on his head so his skin can heal. Buddy does not know how to reverse. When the cone touches something, he throws everything into pushing forward. So if Jan is trying to open a door and Buddy is on the other side, it's a contest. If Jan is walking ahead of him, he runs into her legs and tries to move her out of the way.

Yesterday he walked into the bathroom, tried to turn around, and knocked something into the bathtub which scared Percy and Cameron who had been napping behind the shower curtain. They scurried for safety. Buddy was in their way, so they leaped over his head, and knocked a bunch of bottles and jars off a cart - almost onto Jan's bare toes.

But the topper was when Buddy tried to throw her through a window while she was climbing down from changing curtains. There was nothing to brace herself on so when she stepped back and met Buddy's cone racing forward .... Let's just say there was a lot of yelling! Some of it is on our bad word list.

So, I picked out this video to try to make her smile. If it doesn't, we'll just have to pack our bags and go visit friends until things cool down around here.

If the video doesn't play, click here.


  1. We gotta sneak a video camera in your house...we wanna see Jan & Buddy in action!

  2. OMD, that kitty must have been hitting the nip.

    Hope Jan is feeling better soon.

  3. You are a cutie. Keep trying to make Jan smile. She deserves to feel better. Your friend bijou

  4. Mom hasn't shown us that video before - very funny!!

    Must be the weather - mom swears she gots one nerve left and everyone is all over it!!! Mother Nature decided to send the hots here with no warning and it makes mom's head ache when the weather switches so fast..... Hope Jan is better soon (and tell Buddy to try to find the reverse button on that cone).

  5. We are with the Katnip Lounge. Sounds like all of you would make an hysterical video. But your house sounds a whole bunch just like ours. We all lie across the floor, so there is no way Mom can get from one place to the other, and she says words that are on the norty list. Hope Buddy gets rid of that cone soon or Jan might be wearing one.

  6. Oh Jan keep trying to smile through. I hope you feel better soon.. Hugs GJ xx

  7. Hi Rusty! We hope that your attempt to make her smile worked! We think it isn't all your fault and we are sure that she knows it - but just in case you might want to have a bag ready!

  8. MOL!!! I will tell you, if THIS didn't make your Mom smile...pack your bags and move in with US! We loved it! We also hope your Mom is feeling better!

  9. Oh me oh my...Jan is havin' a very bad day. I hope she's smilin' now...and sittin' down somewheres...preferably on her feet to protect them. BOL

  10. Hi Rusty!Hope your Mom is feeling better and we were so surprised at the kitty in the video we wondered what prompted that???

  12. Hey folks! Buddy & Rusty, go easy on Jan, will ya! We've been under the weather too, we pass purrs to Jan & Buddy. That video was funny so hopefully it did the trick if not tell her to re-watch the Popcorn Kitties video you posted a couple days ago, that one will make her smile for sure. We thought it was the cutest. Have a good weekend everyone.

  13. Well I know this post was here, I saw it, and I'm STILL smiling about that silly video!

  14. Haaaa!
    I am sure she had a good laugh with the whole episode!
    That kitty in the video is sooo silly!
    Take care
    Kisses and hugs

  15. It sounds very fraught at yoor howse at the moment!

  16. Awwww poor Jan!!! Awwwww Rusty you are so innocent of all charges and Buddy - awww!! Me and Charlie hope his skin heals asap and he gets better! He's so adorable!

    Take care, seriously!!! Be safe now! :-) x

  17. Your poor Mom! Sounds like she is hafing a lot of rough times. Ouch!
