Curtailed Jumping

Gizmo asleep on the bedDoesn’t Gizmo look sweet sleeping on the bed?

Well, don’t you believe it for a minute.

It’s all a ruse – a clever disguise.

There’s nothing sweet about Gizmo.

Here’s what’s been going on.

You see, it’s my job to get my person up in the morning.

When it’s time for her to get out of bed I start jumping – right next to the bed.

And sometimes my front paws land right on the bed.

And it works.

Because I keep jumping till my person gets up.

I’m persistent that way.

She can’t ignore me like she ignores her alarm clock.

But a couple days ago Gizmo was sleeping on the end of my person’s bed when I started jumping.

And he took a big swipe at me – claws and all.

So when Gizmo’s on the bed I don’t dare jump anymore.

.

I’m taking my life in my paws if I do.

Gizmo awake on the bed

Look at him. He’s awake now.

He doesn’t look so sweet and innocent anymore, does he?

He’s probably thinking about swiping at me with those claws of his.

Bongo on the floor - Gizmo on the bed

Hey person, I think you’d better ban Gizmo from your bed.

Otherwise, I’m taking no blame if you don’t get up on time.

***

Note from Bongo’s person: Gizmo is staying on the bed.

Packing up the Cats

Bongo looking at a cat cageFinally!

I’ve been putting up with three cats for far too long.

Today is my big day!

Those two extra cats are getting picked up and taken back home today.

Now all I have to put up with is Scratchy.

I guess I can tolerate one cat after putting up with three cats for so long.

There they go. Locked up in the cat cage.

.

Cat cage held in the air with Bongo looking up

The house is mine again. Mine!

I can put Scratchy in his place now that he’s the only one.

You know how hard it is to put three cats in their place?

You get one taken care of and the other two run wild.

Then you get those two and the first one is at it again.

It’s gonna be so nice around here.

***

Hey, wait a minute.

What?

Gizmo lying on his back

Gizmo!

What are you still doing here?

You missed the bus. You’d better go run and catch it.

What!?

You’re staying?

Oh no!

I’m still outnumbered.

Hey person, you’ve got to get me a puppy.

Cat Mischief

Gizmo stretched out in Bongo's kennelThose cats are still hanging out at my house having a cat party.

This must be the longest cat party ever.

But I guess they wore themselves out and decided to take naps.

The only problem is that Gizmo took his nap in my dog jail kennel.

What’s a cat doing in a dog’s kennel? My kennel at that!

Well, I’d had enough of all the mischief going on around here so I told Gizmo he’d better get out of my kennel.

.

And you know what he did?

Gizmo on his back in Bongo's kennel

He made sure there was no room left for me.

Cats!

What do you do with them?

You can’t beat them and you can’t join them.

So I did the next best thing.

I kissed him.

Cat Party Continues

Bongo looking distressedThis is really bad.

The cat party is still going on around here.

Didn’t anybody tell Scratchy that parties only last a few hours?

They’re not supposed to go on for days.

And these cats are getting into so much mischief.

.

.

.

.

.

Look at this!

Tiberius and Gizmo on the bed

They’re hanging out on the bed.

I’m not allowed on the bed.

And if I even go near the couch I get yelled at.

Tiberius, Gizmo, and Scratchy on the couch

But look where all those cats are sleeping.

It’s no fair. It’s just not fair!

Somebody’s got to do something about these cats.

Wait. What?

What are you doing Tiberius?

Tiberius rubbing on Bongo

Oh, no!

No cat’s gonna come rubbing up on me.

Bongo walking away from Tiberius

I’m outta here!

Can somebody please help me?

Invasion!

Bongo wearing a red bandannaOn Friday my person rescued me from the dog hotel – I mean, she came and forced me away. I was having so much fun I didn’t want to leave.

I got home and looked forward to a nice, long nap when I noticed something was afoot.

Cats.

Scratchy had invited Gizmo over for a sleepover.

.

.

.

.

.

Remember Gizmo?

Gizmo

So now I had two cats to put up with.

I wandered around the house looking for a comfy, peaceful place to lie down where there weren’t any cats, when I saw him.

Gizmo brought his friend Tiberius with him.

The cats were having a party.

And there was no holding them back.

They took over my kennel.

Gizmo, don’t try to deny it. I know you were checking out my dog jail kennel.

They took over the floor.

They tried to steal my snake.

Not you too, Tiberius!

The cats even took over the counter.

Scratchy, can you take your cat party outside?

Oh, no. Don’t you dare invite another cat to your party.

Can somebody please help me!?

Who’s Up to Mischief

Scratchy on top of cabinetsScratchy, the cat I live with, has been up to all kinds of mischief lately.

For some reason I always get all the blame for all the mischief around here, but this time I have proof that Scratchy did it.

Check out this picture.

Scratchy’s on top of the laundry room cabinets.

And it’s sure a good thing that opening to the attic is closed up tight.

.

Because my person said when it was first put there – way back before I lived here – the cover wasn’t over the hole and Scratchy discovered it before she did.

But since Scratchy couldn’t escape that way he tried another way.

And don’t think Scratchy was just sniffing the air because he didn’t stay at the entrance.

Scratchy heading downstairs

Who knows where Scratchy would have ended up if I hadn’t put a stop to it.

If Scratchy doesn’t stay where he belongs I’m going to have to do something about it.

Like lock him up in cat jail.

I’m the only one around here who’s allowed to be an escape artist.

Mischievous Cat

Scratchy sleeping on a toy bearScratchy, the cat I live with doesn’t have his own blog because his life if boring.

He just hangs around the house.

No adventures. Nothing.

But lately Scratchy has been getting into so much mischief.

So much that I can’t wait for the Monday Mischief blog hop and post.

It would be way too long of a post.

.

You know what Scratchy did this morning?

You can kind of get an idea from the picture of him.

You see that thing he’s sleeping on.

Well, that’s my squeaky bear.

First Scratchy took over my old bed, and now he thinks he can steal my squeaky bear too.

Scratchy, you’d better think twice about stealing my bear because if you don’t give it back I’m locking you in dog cat jail.

Scratchy alone in the kennel

Alright Scratchy.

Here I come!

Give me back my bear now or you’re in for it.

Scratchy on the cabinets

Fine, go up there.

I guess you can’t do much mischief on top of the cabinets.

Bongo with his bear

 At least I got my bear back.

National Dress Up Your Pet Day

Scratchy in a T-shirtToday is a really special holiday. At least I think it’s a special holiday.

It’s National Dress Up Your Pet Day.

I got all excited until I realized – I don’t have any pets.

So I did the next best thing.

I decided that Scratchy would be my pet for the day.

That way I could dress him up any way I wanted.

But then I had another problem.

My people are way bigger than Scratchy.

How am I ever going to find something to dress him in?

Then I had an idea.

My younger person doesn’t clean out his closet very often.

So I snuck in there – don’t you dare tell him – I would get in real trouble – I’m not supposed to even be in his room. I don’t know why he has a problem with my hair.

He has hair.

So anyway, I went through his closet and I found it.

A very small shirt that he had decorated when he was little.

And I put it on Scratchy.

Scratchy started to step right out of that shirt.

And the decorations didn’t even show.

So I decorated him with a bow.

And then you know what Scratchy did?

I’m telling too.

Because he went right into my younger person’s closet.

And then he dressed me up as a Cub Scout.

I couldn’t stop him. He threatened me with his claws.

Scratchy, Get Off!

Bongo caught lying in his kennelI have this really cool new dog bed in my dog jail.

But now I have a problem.

You see, I still have an old dog bed.

Right now my old bed has a hole in it, so my person put it by the sewing machine until she gets around to fixing that hole.

But Scratchy decided to take over my bed.

.

 

Scratchy sleeping on Bongo's bed

 Scratchy, can’t you see that’s a dog bed?

Those are dog paw prints on that bed – not cat prints.

I don’t believe this!

Scratchy gets to sleep anywhere he wants.

He can sleep on any of the couches and even on my person’s bed.

I’m only allowed to sleep on the floor and on my dog beds.

Somehow I feel like a second class citizen.

I only have two dog beds to sleep on and Scratchy has all those nice, comfy places to sleep – and he decides to sleep on one of my beds.

Scratchy, if you don’t hurry up and get off my bed I’m going to give you what for.

***

I guess that did it.

I scared him off that time.

Scratchy sitting in front of the computer screen

That’s a much better place for Scratchy. Right in front of the computer screen.

Oh, wait. I hope my person has finished typing up my blog post.

The Worst Christmas Ever!

Bongo in his dog jail on his new bedI hope you had a wonderful Christmas. I didn’t. I had the worst Christmas ever!

Look at what I got. This thing I’m sitting on.

I got a new bed for my dog jail.

Nothing like sprucing up your jail.

I would rather have had something taken away than something new for my dog jail.

Like maybe the locks on my dog jail door. I could easily do without those.

But that wasn’t all that happened to me on Christmas.

I was tormented by cats besides.

.

First Scratchy tried to steal all my presents.

Scratchy on the floor with presents

Scratchy, those are my presents!

Then my younger person ignored me because he was reading a book about a cat.

Younger person reading Grumpy Cat book

He’s not even reading about a fun, playful cat. He’s reading about Grumpy Cat.

Fine. I’ll grump on his Christmas.

But to make things even worse I had to stop chewing on my new antler to pose for a picture.

Bongo with his antler between his legs

Well, at least I did get a frog for Christmas.

A frog and an antler.

But wait a minute.

Where’s my treats?

Bongo with  a longing look

I thought I was getting treats for Christmas.

Do you believe it!?

I have to dig my treats out of this ball.

I hope you all had a better Christmas than I did.
