Scratchy, Get Off!

02 Jan

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.

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.

    Bongo, I think all cats like to take over all beds.. I know my cats like to take over MY bed. They sure are something. Bunch of bed hogs.

      Jackie, I don’t know what it is with cats. I even saw a video of cats stealing dog beds and what the dogs were doing to get their beds back. It would have been funny – except there were cats in the video.

        Cats are definitely a nervy bunch.

    Well scratchy doesn’t roll in icky things like we do and she probably cleans herself better

    • Bongo

      January 2, 2014 at 6:55 pm

      Fredrieka, I guess Scratchy does stay pretty clean. He’s not allowed out of the house so he doesn’t have much chance to get dirty.

      Kari, I just don’t know why Scratchy has to choose my bed.

    Bongo, you cracked me up…a second class citizen….BWAHHH!!!! I hope your doggie bed gets stitched up soon dear Bongo!!!! Hugs

      Write to Way, I’m afraid my doggie bed is getting forgotten by all but Scratchy. After it gets stitched up it will need to be washed to get all that cat scent off of it. Happy New Year!

    Ah, Bongo, remember who’s got the looks and who’s the boss?! Exactly: YOU! So don’t worry with little things like that! 🙂

    • Bongo

      Marina, I guess you’re right. Thanks for reminding me. Scratchy, you’ve got nothing on me. Now get out of my bed!

    Hmmm…You have two beds all your own and Scratchy doesn’t even have one of his very own. You even have your very own bedroom—you call it a jail but it is yours. Just sayin Bongo

      But Patricia, every time I try to get on the couch I get told to get off. Now how fair is that?

      • Patricia

        January 3, 2014 at 7:12 pm

        It’s not fair. Just be more careful and don’t get caught. What your person doesn’t know won’t hurt her…or you.

      • Bongo

        January 3, 2014 at 8:11 pm

        Before I got stuck in my dog jail all the time I would sleep on the couch when my person wasn’t home. But sometimes I wouldn’t wake up in time and she’d catch me there. Oops.

    You better Scratchy who’s boss

    • Bongo

      January 2, 2014 at 7:02 pm

      Lily, I’m going to get up there and give Scratchy what for. Then he’ll know who’s boss for sure.

    Bongo, you can have my blankie, it has dog prints too, Granny thought I wouldn’t notice, but now I know 😉

    • Bongo

      Thanks Little Binky. You’re a much nice cat than Scratchy. When you look at those dog prints you can think of me.

    Scratchy had better be careful. Black cat, black bed – he might get stuck inside the hole and your person will sew it up. Bye, Scratchy!

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake, that would be so nice. Then I could lay on my bed and smash him flat.

    Tell me about it Bongo! I’ve had the same problem here… I have a post about it too. Hang in there! (Good thing your person had finished your post) Cooper the Cattledog

      Cooper, it seems like cats are always up to no good and hanging out where they’re not supposed to be.

    Bongo that is so typical of cats. Keep a paw on things there!

    • Bongo

      January 2, 2014 at 8:59 pm

      Karen, I’ll be keeping a big paw on Scratchy for sure.

    Both of your beds look like the ones all cats love!!! Scrathy seems to be very comfortable on the bed and the color of his fur matches the one of the bed! 🙂

    • Bongo

      January 3, 2014 at 7:57 pm

      Kevin, are you saying I should let Scratchy keep that bed? He’s always sleeping on it now.

  14. Sun

    January 3, 2014 at 9:55 am

    ha-ha!!!!! poor you. i guess the best remedy for all of this is to just go over and snuggle right next to Scratchy!! life can be so hard with cats. poor Bongo. maybe you should go eat all of Scratchy’s food… 🙂

    • Bongo

      January 3, 2014 at 7:58 pm

      Sun, that’s a good idea – snuggling next to Scratchy – because he always leaves when I do that. And I would eat all his food, I used to eat it, but now my person keeps locking me in dog jail and I can’t get to it.

      • Sun

        January 4, 2014 at 12:07 am

        while in jail, keep thinking, Bongo. i’m sure some grand scheme will develop in that smart brain of yours. 🙂

    I think you should leave that old dog bed to Scratchy and receive a beautiful, super-comfy new dog bed. Or an own couch. Or an own person-bed. Or all three. And with a sign “Trespassers W”.

    • Bongo

      January 3, 2014 at 8:01 pm

      Kolytyi, all those beds sound really great, but for some reason I get kicked of the couches and the person beds. Maybe I could get Piglet to come and chase Scratchy off of my bed.

    Same deal here Bongo. As soon as Diane makes up a new dog bed for ME, that Moe goes & gets cat smell all over it. And he sleeps tucked up behind Diane’s knees every night while I have to sleep on the floor! Well, ok sometimes I do sneak on the bed & couch but then i’m supposed to get off so I don’t think that’s fair. Plus I do all the work around this house, protecting everyone from bad guys…Lola

      Lola, you and I are in the same boat. Those cats take over everything. Us dogs need to unite, carry picket signs, and chase the cats under the bed.
