Weed Pulling Traitor

24 Jul

cat lying in a yardSomething is terribly wrong with this picture.

And my person is a real traitor. I think I can even get Scratchy to stand with me on this.






Bongo cornering Scratchy under a desk

Well, maybe.

You see, my person said she was going out to pull weeds in the front yard.

And she wouldn’t let me come with her because there’s no fence in the front.

I would stay in the yard. Really. For a minute anyway.

So my person went out and left me in the house.

She didn’t bother to tell me she already had a helper.

Cat eating grass

And she let that cat eat my weeds.

I like weeds. I could have eaten all of them myself.

But that’s not even the worst part.

back of cat's head next to railroad tie

That cat looks awfully close to my person in that picture.

My person is only supposed to be close to me. No other animals allowed.

Okay Scratchy – maybe a little bit to you.

But not to that strange neighbor cat!

Oh dear! It’s a good thing I got hold of my person’s camera and checked her pictures out.

Cat on a lap

Is that cat sitting on my person’s lap?

This calls for measures of the strictest kind.

My person will no longer be allowed to pull weeds without my supervision.

And next time she goes out to pull some –

I’ve got a cat to chase.

    Pooh boy, there’s got to be some rules clarified in your house Bongo. It’s obvious that cat is trying to weasel his way into your family. The old ‘let me help’ trick might fool a person, but certainly not a fine observer like you.

      Lola, my person says that cat came right up to her while she wasn’t looking and started loving on her. I’m not sure if I should believe her. She must have encouraged that cat. I can’t wait until I find that cat in my yard so I can chase it.

        Ok, let’s give your person the benefit of the doubt … this time. We both know how sneaky cats can be.

        Lola, she’s guilty for sure. My person found that cat outside again and she went up and petted it. Maybe the first time it was the cat’s fault – but not the second time.

        whoa…second time? did you say second time? Ok, that means an intervention Bongo.

        Lola, I don’t think I can allow my person out of the house without being on a leash anymore.

    I think it’s time for a serious sit down at your house Bongo…Time to educate your person on “the rules”

      Gizmo, I’ve been trying for a long time. My person is a really slow learner.

    Bongo – that’s one pushy cat…what’s Scratchy think of it? (Cat insight might help when creating a plan)

    • Bongo

      July 24, 2013 at 5:15 pm

      Molly, do you have any ideas on how to get the inside cat to help? Scratchy never seems to want to cooperate with me.

    Honestly, Bongo, there should be laws about this. Lap privileges are for you and Scratchy strictly! And getting a …cat helper for the weeds? tsk tsk tsk!

    • Bongo

      July 24, 2013 at 5:16 pm

      Marina, I know. What my person did is terrible. And she’s trying to put all the blame on that cat. She says the cat came up behind her and started loving on her. She could have picked that cat up and tossed it away. But no, that’s not what she did.

    Is somebody jealous?

    • Bongo

      July 24, 2013 at 5:17 pm

      Susan, of course I’m jealous. I get stuck in the house and my person gets all friendly with a strange neighbor cat.

    Such a cute cat! Looks like a ragdoll 🙂

      Daydreamer, it is a cute cat – but I still want to chase it away.

    How lovely he/she is!!! *Oops!!!* Hmmmmm….I’m wondering if the cat has his/her owner? looks very tamed….and is very helpful *Oops again*
    *clear my throat* anyway….yes…I agree with you…you should supervise your person next time when she is out for pulling those weeds!

    • Bongo

      Kevin, I’m for sure going to supervise my person from now on. She says she’s been seeing that cat around for the last few weeks. Always before it ran away from her, so I don’t know what happened this time. Now they’re friends. She saw it outside again and went over and petted it. I’m sure that cat lives in one of the houses nearby because it looks healthy and well fed. Maybe if the cat’s owners knew their cat and my person are friends they’d get jealous and keep their cat inside.

    This is terrible! You should keep your person on a VERY short leash! She is totally unreliable!

    • Bongo

      July 25, 2013 at 2:50 pm

      Kolytyi, I am totally keeping my person on a short leash from now on. And no weed pulling unless I’m there to supervise.

      Benny & Lily, you’re right about selecting which weeds to pull. You don’t want the ones that taste bad or the ones that make you sick. I guess I could leave those weeds for that cat.

    Bongo, maybe your person just uses him to do the hard work and in return he may sit on her lab for a minute to purr out 🙂

      July 27, 2013 at 5:01 pm

      Little Binky, whatever it is, I’m not going for it. I think that cat is trying to get all my person’s attention.

      Ginger, I finally got back at that cat. It was in my backyard last night when my person let me out. No leash to stop me from chasing it. Unfortunately, the fence in my yard has some cat sized holes that I can’t fit through.
