The Riddle Explained

Oh man, every-buddy, thanks for your concern and support. Well, the day I had been dreading came yesterday. Momma was getting all sorts of bags ready all day on Wednesday, and then yesterday morning, I thought I'd just hang out with the bed sheets, hopin' she's just pass me by. But no--she got me and stuffed the little pink pill down my throat, and then I spent the next 11 hours in the prison box in the car.
Things were fuzzy and I heard the voices from the cat-fairies, and sometimes I think Coco would schnuffle at the cage front of the prison box, and Momma would say "wave to the Meezers, Jimmy Joe!" or "wave to Parker and her family, Jimmy Joe!", but I didn't know where we were. Momma said I was a "space cowboy," and suggested I use this picture to show you all:

Maggie and Zoey and Miss Ann at Zoolatry made this for me on the astronaut day, which I missed, but I guess it works for this adventure, too.

Momma giggled and sang "ground control to Ji--mmy Joe!" in the car, but I don't think there's anything funny about it.

Well, apparently we went over the river and through the woods, and now we're at Granny and Poppa's. Luckily, everything at Granny and Poppa's is good. Sophie is playing hidey-cat again (I thought she'd remember me and Coco, but she is sulking), and I met Sassy the kitten, but she's a brat and she hissed at me and fluffed her tail and glared at me for eating from the kibble bowl. I sat there patiently and explained to her that I am a big mancat and that she is a little kitten brat and she needs to learn how to share, and I tried to touch her nose, but she just made a spoiled squeek and went under the table. Oh man, kittens.

Oh Jimmy Joe, the indignities yoo must suffer! Sassy will learn, Speedy sez just lay still and wait fur her to come to yoo. He should know, he helps raise the foster kittens. Have a Merry Krissmouse anyway, just do what ever YOU want.

Oh, Jimmy Joe, I'm so sorry! At least you got to talk to the fairies, and it sounds like you'll be having a lot of fun and extra chin skritches over the holidays.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I hope Sandy Paws is VERY good to you.

(The astronaut picture made my mommy giggle.)

Daisy said...

That's a cute picture of you as a Space Cowboy! What a long, long ride you went on.

Sunny's Mommy said...

Poor Jimmy Joe! Your Mom must think she's a real comedian. Ugh.

An 11 hour drive. Wow that's a long drive. How long will you be at Granny and Poppa's? I'm sure your visit will get better. But man another 11 hour drive back home. Poor, poor Jimmy Joe. I feel for you.

Eric and Flynn said...

We haf only been in the car furr as long as it takes to git to the V E T, never furr 11 hours. we like your Space Cowboy pikchur. We wish yoo and your Beans a great Chris Mouse.

Mosaic Cats said...

Eleven hours! We feel better about the 4.5 in front of us tomorrow. We don't have pink pills, but ML has been giving us Bach Flower Rescue Remedy all week. She'd better shove it in our mouths tomorrow!
And the worst thing of all? the SUV we rented only has a radio.

"ground control to Ji--mmy Joe!"

OOh! Mom is laughing! I can glare at her for you! This is big Trixie by the way. My collar no longer fits so Mom has put a Christmas scarf around my neck.

I look EXQUISITE and I am on her lap holding her tight and purring while she types. I am dictating. I am a good dictator.

Pyewacket is asleep. Shhh! Don't wake her up. She thinks that because she is the Siamese, then it's all about her.

Mickey said...

Whew!!!! While I feel sorry for your ordeal, I'm glad everything is OK :)
MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!! Mickey,Georgia & Tillie

With lots of hugs from Tigger the FBI cat. :)

P.S. Mom says I have to say that Pyewacket and Trixie from tpcatrules wish you a Merry Christmas too. {{hugs}} from all three of us.

Maggy & Zoey said...

Merry Christmas Jimmy Joe... to you, and yours. And a Happy New Year, too. (So, do you get a little pink pill for the trip home as well? Dream on...)

Dragonheart and Merlin said...

Jimmy Joe, I agree with you about kittens. My little brother has arrived, and I'm not quite sure what to make of him.

I hope you have a very Merry Christmas at your Grandparents' place.

Parker said...

Gah! I just had a flashback from last August! I am glad you are OK now! Have a wonderful Christmas Jimmy Joe!
