Tortie T(h)ursday

Samson has been preparing me all week for a vet trip for him and I tonight. Little does he know, but I've been to many vets, and I doubt this one will be any different. At 11 years old, I've been around the block a few more times than him.

Samson is under the impression that he is going to the vet to help me feel more comfortable, when in fact, he is going to go for some tests too. He has been scratching and grooming off his beautiful coat so the humans are very concerned about him.

He also told me that the Mommy creature is planning on signing the adoption papers to take over my care. I'm pretty happy about that, but I won't start celebrating until the papers are signed and it is official. Although, I won't turn down a celebratory treat in the meantime!

While I haven't always felt this way, life as a Monkey will be a pretty wonderful thing. The food and love is plentiful, and, for the most part, I get along with Samson and Delilah.

Samson is a sweet gentlemancat with wonderful manners. Once I made it clear that he was not to approach me, he was quite content to admire me from afar.

Most times Delilah lets me do my own thing, but she is a bit of a wildcard. She has a new game that is quite disturbing and frankly, very immature. She is only 4 years old, so I'm trying to cut her some slack, but sometimes I wish I had a housemate that was more my age. Delilah's game involves maneuvering the cat cube so that one of the holes is on the bottom, then she lurks in the cube and lunges, with the cube still on her, at any passersby! She doesn't discriminate because she attacks both humans and furries.

She sticks her feet out of the hole on the bottom and runs around with the cube on her. It looks like a Flintstones car for cats! She has gotten Samson and I a few times with this trick, but the only time I enjoyed watching it was when she surprised Sweet Pea and Sweet Pea nearly jumped out of her furs! Good times...

We will update you tomorrow on how our vet trip went (and hopefully have some pictures).

We think it would be fun watching Delilah in the cube!! Ha! Ha! Hope that the vet trip goes well!

BeadedTail said...

We hope the vet trip goes well for you and Samson! We're glad you are going to be an official Monkey soon too!

We bet Delilah is fun to watch in that cube and can imagine Sweet Pea nearly jumping out of her furs! MOL!

Good luck on the vet trip! Bella, you a great monkey!!! MOL

We want to watch Delilah in that cube!

Kea said...

Good luck, we hope it went well!

We had to laugh over Delilah's cube game...we think we boys would enjoy it, but definitely NOT Annie!

Cory said...

I think I should send Figaro over to play with Delilah...he's just a year old and he's driving us all NUTS!!!! Play play play play play...sigh. We want to see a video of Delilah Flintstone!

Bella, we will be so happy when the papers are signed and you are an "official" Monkey.

Marg said...

That is hysterical about Delilah and the cube. We have a big picture of her walking around in the cube. Too funny.
Good luck at the vets tomorrow you two. Hope you both get good reports.
Have a great day.

Bella this is wonderful news that you are to be formally adopted into The Monkeys. We hope Samson's tests go well too.

Our ape is cackling her head off reading about Delilahs cube ambush technique. Just hope Gerry doesn't read it, he'll try and copy Delilah!

Best of luck with the vet appointments, Bella and Samson! Hope all goes well. So happy you will be an official Monkey!!!

SASS....Sammy Andy Shelly Sierra said...

MOL and LOL....we can just see Deli and her cube!!!!!!!!

Sweet Bella, we are so very happy that you have become one of The Monkeys.

We are purring for a good result for you and Samson at the vet.


meowmeowmans said...

Yay! You're going to be an official Monkey, Bella! Such wonderful and happy news. :)

Teehee .... Sweet Pea almost jumped out of her furs! That does sound pretty funny.

We hope you and Samson's trip to the V-E-T goes well.

Have a great day, friends!

Mishkat said...

Bella, we are purring that both you and Samson have a good V-E-T visit. We'll look forward to hearing the news. And we are so glad to hear that your adoption will be finalized soon.

We're all laughing at our mental pictures of Deli running around with the cube on top of her! Our cubes are hooked together with Velcro (they came set up so you could do that) and it makes them harder to maneuver, although Tasha has pushed them all the way out into the hall at times - she looks like she'd driving a cube train.

Good luck at the V-E-T!

Thanks for purring for Sniffie.

We hope that the vet visit goes well for you both tomorrow.

That is a fantastic game to play with the cube!

I'm smiling big over you getting to be a Monkey, that is wonderful. My sisters and I got our best purrs going for a good vet visit!

Cat said...

Hi Bella, we are so happy that you will be a permanent member of the Monkies :-) I hope everything goes well at the vet tonight, it's very gallant of Samson to want to make sure you are comfortable and not nervous while you are there.

We thought Delilah's cube game sounded very funny and hopefully your mum can catch it on video but I understand that it might be scary if she pounces on you.

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

Delilah sounds funny in the cube. Good luck to you and Samson for your vet visit.


Good luck on the Vet trip tomorrow we will keep you in our purrs.

Delilah you are a trickster! We would have loved to have seen Sweet Pea's reaction.



The Island Cats said...

Oh Bella! You are looking so good!! Good luck on your vet visit!

We think Delilah is very funny in that cube! What a sneaky girlcat she is!!
