More Sense Versus More Heat

Micah:  Dogs are weird.

Buddy:  Hey, who are you calling weird?

Micah:  You and Marcus. 

Buddy:  You'd better have a good reason for that!

Micah:  I do.  Merci is old and when animals get old, their bladder sometimes goes wonky. 

Buddy:  My bladder is fine.  Usually.

Micah:  But yesterday morning while you slept under your quilt on the big bed, Jan yelled for Merci to get up and go outside with Marcus.  Merci did.  However, as Jan soon discovered, Jan evidently startled her awake and Merci had an accident in her bed.

Buddy:  That's Jan's fault for yelling at her.

Micah:  But if she doesn't yell, Merci doesn't hear her.  Jan understood Merci didn't do it deliberately so she quietly took the bed outside to wash the urine out of it.  It was so cold, she brought the bed back inside to dry and put it in front of the heater.  It wasn't long before she turned around to see this.

Buddy:  Yes, Marcus assumed the bed was in front of the heater so he could stay warm.

Micah:  But the bed was still damp.

Buddy:  So?  

Micah:  So you got jealous and went to sit beside Jan and stare at her so she would think you needed to go out.  Then when she opened the back door and Marcus ran outside, she turned around and there you were in the bed Marcus had been sleeping in.

Buddy:  Yes, I'm crafty that way. 

Micah:  But the bed was damp!  A cat would never curl up in a damp bed.

Buddy:  Not even in front of the heat?

Micah:  No, we have more sense.

Buddy:  You were huddled near a pilot light on the stove.  I lay warm and toasty in front of the heater.  I might not have more sense but I sure had more heat!


  1. Oh Merci poor baby. It's Jan's fault for scaring you

  4. Not weird, it is just sort of like being out in the rain on a warm day:)

  5. A warm bed is still a warm bed, a great place to sleep

  6. You are too smart for your own good by tricking your brother into giving up the bed whether it is damp or not!

  7. Dang, we all had to be scared awake!

  8. MOL We're not sure who has more sense or more heat. MOL We just go fur da 'lectric blanky on da bed with mommy. Fank da cats she doesn't scare us awake. We might piddle our pantaloons too. Big hugs

    Luv ya'

    Dezi and Raena

  9. Maybe your Mom needs to put a plastic cover on the bed and then cover it with a blanket then the pee won't get into the bed. I have a waterprroof cover on our mattress and the couch.

  10. Dogs are very strange and Saphera is even stranger than Marcus.

    Sasha, Sami, & Saku

  13. Boy, crafty is not even a strong enough word for that cagey maneuver! How out-fox, so to speak.

  14. Oops! What a damp circus act at your den, BOL!

    I don't think I would get into a damp bed...but then again...who knows, I haven't yet had the chance to try:)

    Stay dry and warm you pups and kitties, OK!?!
