Cat in a Cage

31 Oct

Bongo next to the dog crate - Scratchy insideI’ve been totally upset since I found out there was a dog jail in my big package.

But I’ve been thinking about it, and I think I came to a wrong conclusion.

My person was mistaken when she said the package was for me.

It wasn’t for me at all.

It’s not even a dog jail.

It’s a cat cage.

I decided to test my theory out, so I got some cat treats, carefully placed them inside the cage, and lured Scratchy in.

Then I shut the door.

Scratchy in the dog crate

Yup, it’s a cat cage alright.

This is really fun.

Making fun of Scratchy in the cage, I mean.

I was having a great time watching Scratchy in the cage when my person heard something – I’m not sure what – and showed up in the room with us.

Person, I was only trying to do you a favor.

It’s Halloween.

Aren’t you supposed to lock all the black cats up for safety?

    You caught a black cat on Halloween! Is that bad luck? Or maybe it’s good luck since you’re not the one in the cage!

      Will and Eko, it’s definitely good luck. Always better to have Scratchy in the cage instead of me.

      Kolytyi, this is definitely a better use of this cage.

    I know you only wanted to protect your cat Bongo. 😉

      Andrea, you’re so right. People do things to black cats on Halloween and I certainly didn’t want anything to happen to Scracthy – unless it was something I did, that is.

    Mm. Not sure of this one.

      Kev, I think maybe I should fill this cage with black cats for Halloween. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    So thoughtful – cat treats even! (and it’s on wheels – now, I am so jealous)

    That’s more like it!!! [sorry Scratchy]!
    Maybe you could both sleep in that little …house.
    BTW that’s a beautiful bed you have, Bongo!

      Marina, I would never want to sleep in there with Scratchy, but maybe I should take my bed back from him.

      Lola, I agree. This cage thing is working out much better now.

    If that is a cat cage …then I am a millionaire…it looks more like a cage for a very wild animal….the bars ar so thick and strong.
    Are you sure that person has not got a big wild animal tucked away somewhere….and I do not mean poor Scratchy…a lion, a tiger, or a bear…xxxxxxxxxxx

      Patrecia, Scratchy can get really wild sometimes. Just ask all the people at the vet.

      Ku, Happy Halloween to you, too. This is the best one ever – having the cat locked up.

      That’s right Cupcake. I’m taking very good care of Scratchy. People try to steal black cats on Halloween. Hey, wait a minute. Scratchy, get out of that cage. I need you to come outside for a minute.

    GOOD BONGO!!! Your such a good boy! Putting that mean nasty ol’ kitty in the cage. And your right by the way, Scratchy should be locked up safe for today.

    Your such a good boy!

      I’m always looking out for the best for that mean nasty ol’ kitty.

    You look entirely too happy in that first picture.

      Patricia, I was very proud of myself.

      Lily, it was a close call. It’s a good think I figured out what that cage is really for.

    BOL! You look so happy to have Scratchy in the cage on the first picture, Bongo!
    I think that Scratchy and the paw prints cushion go really well! 🙂

      Kevin, having Scratchy locked up is beyond my wildest dreams – even if he does look good with my dog bed.

    Well, sweet Bongo we think you did good making sure sweet Scratchy was safe on Halloween. We have never seen a cage that nice, we like that it is on wheels. Hugs and nose kisses

      Chancy and Mag, nobody laid a hand on Scratchy all during Halloween. My person never got me a cage before because she figured I’d bust out of it during thunderstorms. There’s got to be a way out of this one. I just have to figure it out.

    Quick thinking Bongo. Did it keep you out of trouble?

    • Bongo

      November 8, 2013 at 6:49 pm

      Sandra, I mostly had to stay out of Scratchy’s way after my person let him out of the cage.

    We vote for scratchy to stay in there! We are on your side!
