Introducing Charcoalie

originally uploaded by Bonnie & Victor Cats.
The evil vet suggested getting a 3rd cat might help with Bonnie's mood. Well, we adopted this little boy from the same shelter as Derby's friend Vir-Ginger. This is Charcoalie, a quiet and well behaved gray tabby. He's the only cat allowed on the table.

Beware of Cat

There are men working around outside my house this week. I heard my people say they are "house panters" or something. Whatever, as long as they stay outside.

One of them took my woman outside to talk yesterday, so I positioned myself at the top of the stairs, ready to stare down any invaders. But they took too long, so I decided it was probably ok and I let Victor take over my post.

In fact, I told Victor to hunch down at the top of the stairs and look menacing. He said he was afraid to attack anyone. I sat in the hall and said, "Don't worry, if anyone tries to get you, I'll be right here to protect you."

What's this "decoy" my woman says I've made of Victor?

Victor's Day in Court

Victor Tabbycat was in court Friday morning, facing charges of assault and battery against a houseplant. The courtroom was filled with cats declaring Victor’s innocence and carrying signs reading, “Free Victor”.

Kukka-Maria had organized a picket line pacing outside the door. Princess Mia Bella was handing out buttons and collecting last minute names for her petition to free Victor. Finnegan J. Katz, Esq., council for the defense, sat calmly next to the defendant, who twitched his tail nervously.

The courtroom quieted for the judge to enter, but the picketers were still chanting, “Let My Feline Go.” The judge cried out, “What’s all that caterwauling?” Someone closed the door, but there followed a few minutes of cats moving in and out the door indecisively before efurryone settled.

During opening arguments, the judge asked Victor his age. Upon learning that Victor is not 18 (months old) yet, the case was transferred to the juvenile feline justice system.

Messrs. Tabbycat and Katz met privately with a juvenile detention agent after their 1pm nap. In light of the excellent defense prepared by Mr. Katz and Mr. Tabbycat’s sincere apology for his actions, the juvenile agent determined the event was an unfortunate accident. She released Victor to his bean parents’ custody. Victor is required to participate in play therapy three times a week and write a Public Service Announcement (PSA) for the benefit of other young cats. He will meet with a parole agent in one month to consider his progress.

Case dismissed.

Goodbye, Puddin Pop

Sadly, Norton from Meezer Tails has left us. Almost 18 years is a long life and I'm sure he was happy and content. He joins his buddy Ralphie at the Rainbow Bridge. We who are left behind are saddened. He was a Good Cat. You can tell from the cats he influenced. He will be missed.
