Roll Into Space

Merci:  Hey, Rusty, what happened?  You're bald.


Rusty:  No, I'm not bald.  Just half naked.

Merci:  Oh, I remember this.  It was taken - can it really be ten years ago? 

Rusty: Yes, I was living with Miss Mother (I'm a good Southern cat) then.  I fell off the refrigerator and Jan thought it was because my fur was matted, so she took me to the groomer for a shave and Miss Mother cried because she feared Jan wouldn't take me back home.


Merci: But you fall off everything - the bookcase, the printer, the air conditioner ...

Rusty:  I do now, but I didn't back then.  Miss Mother wasn't doing well and she had a hard time grooming me.  Now I'm old and a bit forgetful and sometimes I just roll into space and crash.

Merci:  I hope crashing isn't contagious.  Jan likes to fly into space and crash.

Rusty:  I wouldn't worry about it.  You're very sure-pawed on solid ground and you don't ever climb.

Merci:  I sound very boring.

Rusty:  No, not boring.  Safe and sound.  To stay that way, avoid Marcus, keep your distance from Jan and don't nap near where I'm sleeping.

Merci:  I think I'll go spend the day in the closet.

  1. Rusty, this is the first time we've seen these pictures. Glad your beautiful fur all grew back. Merci, the closet sounds safe, but then you'd miss all the fun adventures that happen at the Funny Farm! :)

    Hugs!

    I agree with mmm, the closet might be safe, but it would get monotonous! I has the spce/crash thing too. Which probably means it isn't contagious. Guess that means you either get it, or you don't. Like mumps. Unlike age - efurrybuddy catches age - or it catches them... sigh... hugs wags and whiskeries, YAM-aunty xxx

  8. Your hair looks fabulous now so shaving didn't hurt you overall beauty. ♥ Falling is no fun at all. Be careful.

  13. Snorts with piggy laughter. Now that is a look my friend - it stands out and says, "Here me roar!". And don't worry about rolling off things. Mommy rolled off the bed the other night. See, even humans do it. XOXO - Bacon

  15. Rusty, happy to know you're half-nekked days are over. I'm a trained groomer and um...I'd never shave a cat half-nekked. Herman used to get fully shaved in the summertime, but then he complained about being cold. So I gave him a sweater. Then he complained about being hot. I finally decided his complaining wasn't worth it, so I gave up shaving him.

  16. Oh Rusty, falling off of things is OK if you aren't too high :) Half nekked is ok if it is really warm outside!

  17. Rusty, you do not look rusty at all! And with obstacles such as Marcus and others we will not mention, yes, maybe the closet is a good choice.
