Tying Scratchy

08 Jan

Bongo with a package of Bongo TiesI was getting kind of bored today. No adventures. No nothing – when I remembered the Bongo Ties I’d gotten for Christmas. And I hadn’t done anything with them yet.

I had been planning to use those Bongo Ties to tie up Scratchy – and this is the day I’m going to do it.







Scratchy with Bongo Ties on him

Scratchy wasn’t very cooperative and I found out it’s harder than I thought for a dog to tie up a cat. At least with those Bongo Ties. I don’t think they gave them the right name. Somebody needs to invent something that’s easier to tie up cats with. And call that new thing Bongo Ties.

Scratchy dropping a Bongo Tie behind the couch

I started to get some Bongo Ties on Scratchy and then he got really ornery and started dropping them behind the couch.

I yelled at Scratchy and told him to go behind the couch and get my Bongo Ties back. But he wouldn’t fetch them for me so I had to get some more out of the bag.

And you know what he did then?

Scratchy decided my Bongo Ties made great toys.

And no matter what I did after that…

I couldn’t get Scratchy to give my Bongo Ties back.


Scratchy! Get back here! Bring me back my Bongo Ties!

      Sweet Kitten, you’re the bestest. You’re always on my side.

    Me and Nellie agree. Scratchy is being a very naughty kitty not returning your toys. I’d have a word with your mummy.

      Jasper and Nellie, I’m telling on Scratchy now. He’ll get in trouble for sure.

    Ohhhh, well, at least you found something that makes Scratchy play! That ought to count for something, no?!!!

    • Bongo

      Marina, I hadn’t thought of that. Scratchy never wants to play with me. Maybe we can play a game of Bongo Ties.

    It looks like scratchy is having a great time! I hope you get to have some fun today too Bongo!

      Viciously Sweet, I’m having lots of fun – chasing after Scratchy so I can get my Bongo Ties back.

    Yep, those ties did not serve your purpose very well sweet Bongo. Sweet Scratchy sure is lovin’ them though. Hug and nose kisses

    • Bongo

      Chancy and Mumsy, I think they should have named those things Scratchy Ties instead. Hugs and nose kisses back to you.

    There is such a thing as Bongo ties for cats. It’s called duct tape.

    • Bongo

      January 8, 2013 at 7:35 pm

      FleaByte, what a great idea. I’m trading presents with my person right now. Her sister sent me the Bongo Ties and she sent my person some flamingo pink duct tape. Wouldn’t Scratchy look pretty all covered with pink tape?

    Whoops, look like the plan backfired! Enjoy, Scratchy!

      Will and Eko, I’m so glad Bongo gave me his toys to play with. And he’s not getting them back. -Scratchy

    I have noticed that kitties are very good at doing the thing you do not want them to do…

    • Bongo

      January 8, 2013 at 7:36 pm

      Remy, Scratchy’s always doing what I don’t want him to do. And I can’t figure out how to train him.

    I think duct tape works best on cats Bongo – I’d do it myself but I don’t have any thumbs so it’s really hard.

    • Bongo

      January 8, 2013 at 7:38 pm

      Lola, maybe the two of us can work together to duct tape Scratchy. FleaByte had the same idea and my person got some flamingo pink duct tape from her sister. My Bongo Ties came from my person’s sister too, so it would make sense that we could trade presents. Wouldn’t Scratchy look pretty in pink?

        Pink is definitely Scratchy’s color. The trick I think is to get those back legs wrapped up first. I keep trying to tell Diane that something’s got to be done about Moe but all she does is clip his claws (and not enough!)

      • Bongo

        January 9, 2013 at 7:52 pm

        Lola, Scratchy has nasty claws too. I know that first hand. I bet taping him up would solve that problem.

    Sorry, Bongo, you and Scratchy gave me a good laugh! hehe

    • Bongo

      January 8, 2013 at 9:07 pm

      Thanks Roberta, but I think it’s kind of sad when a dog has to play off a cat for humor. I guess Scratchy’s good for something though.

      Benny & Lily, I’ve got to figure out some way to get them back from Scratchy.

    Scratchy has his nerve!

    • Bongo

      January 8, 2013 at 11:57 pm

      Jen, I agree. He’s always getting into some kind of mischief.

    Bongo, it’s seems like Scratchy has a lot of fun, but watch out, maybe he’s making a fool out of you 🙂

    • Bongo

      January 9, 2013 at 7:48 pm

      Angels Whisper, Scratchy is always up to no good. As soon as I get my Bongo Ties back from him I’m tying him up for sure.

    You will have to take his christmas presents hostage!!

      Dalton, I’m going after his Christmas treats right now.

        good idea!!

    uh oh! Hope you figure out a way to get them back!

    • Bongo

      January 9, 2013 at 7:49 pm

      Misaki, Scratchy is being so uncooperative. I think I’m going to have to chase him down and trap him.

    January 9, 2013 at 7:13 am

    Hmmmm….Bongo please be careful! Scratchy might up to tie you up! That’s probably why he doesn’t want to return it to you! 🙂

    • Bongo

      January 9, 2013 at 7:50 pm

      Kevin, nooo! I’d better get those Bongo Ties back from Scratchy quick.

    P.S. Please say “thank you very much” for answering my question about the numbers to your person for me, Bongo. Those “twelve” and “seven” are very interesting! 🙂

    • Bongo

      January 9, 2013 at 7:51 pm

      Kevin, my person says you’re welcome. She thinks the numbers are interesting too.

    Why bother tying him up? Just pin him down and lie down on him. He looks like a soft fluffy pillow.

    Love and licks,

    • Bongo

      January 9, 2013 at 7:54 pm

      Cupcake, I do that to Scratchy a lot. He doesn’t like it much though. I thought I’d try something different this time.

    You look playful in the first picture. And yes, the little things that moves a little when touched, are perfect toys for cats (so, you have to take care of those Bongo Ties!).

    • Bongo

      January 10, 2013 at 12:16 pm

      YouKai, I’ve hidden all those Bongo Ties from Scratchy now. Until the next time I feel like tying him up.
