Terrifying Hour and a Half

Cyndi:  Before we begin, we want to make it clear we are all innocent!

Buddy:  You mean we canines are innocent.  The identity of the feline culprit has not been established.

Micah:  We can get back to this subject later but we need to do our post for today first.

Merci:  We came across this photo of our sweet Angel Cotton and decided to use it for our photo subject this weekend.  Our washing machine isn't actually yellow.  The lighting was bad.

Cameron:  This is Cotton in sepia.  We like the colors in this photo much better.

Percy:  We always thought Cotton was beautiful and should be in the movies, so for our art subject today, we turned her photo into cinemascope.  We miss you, sweet girl.

Marcus:  Are we done?  Can we tell everyone now what we didn't do?  I want everyone to know I had absolutely no part in it.  It's not that I wouldn't have been napping there if I could, but I can't climb that high.  And I wasn't even in the kitchen at the time. So there's no way to blame anything that happened Friday on me.

Sam:  That's true for Friday, but Thursday night you did a number on Jan's left knee.

Marcus:  I'm sorry about that.  I leaped for her lap, lost my balance and slid down her knee. There wouldn't have been so much blood if Jan had remembered to cut my nails.

Rusty:  Is this a guessing game or are we going to tell what happened?  Jan was attacked by an ice chest -- with claws!  And by the way, Jan doesn't consider me a suspect either.  The only ones in the kitchen at the time were Jan and the innocent perp.

Micah:  Isn't "innocent perp" an oxymoron?

Merci: Since Jan believes the most likely innocent perp is Cameron ... Percy ... or even Micah, let's call him "Anonymous" and let him tell everyone what happened.

Cyndi:  *whisper, whisper*   It seems our innocent perp is afraid to tell the story for fear of retribution by Jan, but he has agreed to wear a bedsheet to hide his identity.

Anonymous:  You guys couldn't find a smaller bedsheet?  I'm liable to trip and break a leg wearing this.

Sam: Just tell the truth..

Anonymous:  I was taking a mid-afternoon snooze on the edge of the big ice chest on the refrigerator.  Suddenly the ice chest moved, I slid down, hit something solid, kicked out, hit the floor, ran and hid.  It was a terrifying hour and a half!

Buddy:  It was probably more like a second and a half.  Talk about an abridged confession.

Cameron:  I ... uh, I believe what actually happened is that Jan opened the freezer door and the ice chest fell forward onto her head, the innocent perp slid off, landed on her eye, stomped it ... er, pushed off just as her hand came up to protect herself so her arm got scratched up, the freezer door slammed into her shoulder, the ice chest bounced off her shoulder, and ... she says her knee hurts?  (Not the one Marcus clawed.)

Rusty:  Everything happened so fast she never saw which cat "punched" her in the eye and did some minor claw work on her face. 

Percy:  It was one of those freak accidents Jan excels at.  Fortunately, no cats were harmed in the taking of the above selfie.  We thought we would post it since some of you have asked why we don't share photos of Jan.

  1. Ouch! Terrifying indeed, for all concerned.

    Poor Jan! Gees, that's *this* close to her eye. :-(

    Purrs for speedy healing!

  2. Oh gosh! That is a big oooppps! We hope you heal quickly!!

  3. Wow! That was really close to the eye. We sure hope it heals quickly and the knee too with no issues. We know it was an accident and we know Jan does too so it doesn't matter who was involved does it? You know you are all loved very much and sometimes accidents do happen. Healing hugs for sweet Jan and hugs and nose kisses for all you sweeties.

  4. Oh noes! What a terrible accident. I'm purring that it heals quickly and no more accidents!!

  5. Oh gosh... we had an incident yesterday when I was sitting on the couch - a blur landed on my thigh and launched into space. I found bloody scratch marks as evidence in my skin, but don't know who did it... Oh well.. Anyhow, do hope you are okay, Jan, those kinds of injuries can hurt like the dickens! Purrs from the Zee and Zoey Gang!!

  6. Oh my JAN! OUCHIE for sure. How are you doing? Ice is always helpful. I know that was scary for all involved. Hope your knee is doing better too.

  7. Ouch - bet that hurt lots Jan - of course as usual the perpetrator was "Not Me".
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  8. OMD!!!!! OUCH!!!!! That does sound like a scary hour and a half!!!! So sorry!
    ღ husky hugz ღ frum our pack at Love is being owned by a husky!

  9. Phfft. I think she did that herself just so she could take the dramatic selfie and blame it on some innocent little kitty-cat.

  10. Wow, Cameron (or Anonymous), I'm glad you didn't hurt yourself when you fell!

    Oh yeah, I'm glad your human wasn't too badly damaged either.

  11. Ouch ! Poor Jan ! We wish you a quick recovery ! Purrs

  12. Punishment = no cat milk for a week.

  13. Goodness. The last fur perp here was Buddy running across the bed at night and accidentally he did the eye/claw thing.

  14. OMC, Jan! Your poor eye! Girl, you almost could have had something a lot worse! Stuff like that happens and the cats do freak out. But, geez, Honey! I hate you got so hurt, and your poor eye. It looks so sore. Take care of yourself (as if you meant for this to happen).
    Hugs to you, and kitty kisses, not scratches :-)

  15. OMC! All that action at your house. Sending Jan healing purrz cos that looks nasty.

  16. Hope you are feeling better soon

  17. I think your kitchen is a dangerous place to live in !

  18. Ouch!! You need to teach the gang to dial 911! haha

  19. Oh no, poor Jan! Purrs to her and we hope all heals quickly. (We did think "Anonymous" wearing the bedsheet was a nice touch though!) And it was wonderful to see Angel Cotton as the subject of the art today.

  20. Poor Jan. Sending healing purrs to her.

    Great pics!

    Purrs xx
