Tazo Tuesday

This is the new box that Mama gotted for me. It's super comfy. After the weekend we had, I'm just going to stay in here until it's safe.

I'm kinda in the mood to tattle tail a little, so here I go:

First, Mama has been coughing and coughing. None of us are getting very much sleep. It's really annoying. If we don't get a full 21 hours of sleep every day, we don't function very well. Yesterday, she was coughing so much that her boss gave her some cough drops. hee hee Mama says she cannot help it that she comes from a family of bad lungs.

Second, Mama was snoozing on the couch on Friday morning (since Hurl Grey gotted her up at 230 am). Daddy was going to be super sweet and bring her a cup of coffee and wake her up. Except he tripped over Hurl Grey and spilled the coffee on the couch. And Mama. Oops. hee hee

Finally, the best part happened yesterday. Yesterday, Hurl Grey gotted Mama up at 3 am. Then again at 5 am. Then he stayed up instead of letting her take a nap until the alarm went off. Then he crawled under the couch and pretended to get stuck under there. He cried and cried like a little girl. So Mama had to go get Daddy to help her tip the couch over to free Hurl Grey. As soon as Daddy went back to bed, Hurl Grey crawled right back under the couch. So Mama locked Titus and me in the bedroom with Daddy. It was not fun but she said it was easier to wrangle the couch and just one Furry Kid that to have us all under there in danger of being smooshed.

So Mama tipped the couch over and noticed that a big hole had been clawred or chewed in the felty part that's tacked to the bottom. So she took some scissors and cut the whole thing off. Then she noticed that there were a lot of treasures under there. Like milk jug rings and jingle balls and trash and crumbs. So she cleaned that out, too, so that Mr. Obstruction Hurl Grey couldn't obstruct himself again. I'm sorry that there's no picture of this, but Mama was a little hissed off, you know, since it was only 6 am and she hadn't even hadded her coffee yet. Daddy says when Mama gets like that, it's best to just hand her a cup of coffee and stay out of her way. hee hee Which is why I'm staying in my shoebox for a couple more days.


  1. We're glad you have a safe place to be, Tazo. It sounds like good ole HG is going full blast at the moment...

    We hope your Mama's cough gets better soon!

    Your Pals,
    Tom and Tama-Chan

  2. Oah My GOD!
    Sounds your mommy has a very very horrible flu~!
    I hope she will be doing ok!!! Looks like she has to coughing for days~!!!!
    You better watch your back for these days and let your mommy have great rest ok?

    Big Big purrs,

  3. I have learned that when beans have to do things that are hard when they first wake up is really is best to stay out of their way. They get so grumpy!

  4. Sounds like a good idea, Tazo, to stay out of your mom's way when she's sick and remodeling the couch like that so early in the morning. Hope her cough is better soon! It's no fun to be sick.

    Maybe, and this is just a suggestion you understand, maybe you guys could go easy on her for a couple of days.

  5. OMD Titus!

    We have ANOTHER chance!

    I'll bring the tape!


  6. WOW!!! That Hurl Grey sure likes to cause trouble doesn't he. We will purr for your Mom to get well soon.

  7. It sounds like Hurl Grey is in fine form!

  8. Our mom was doing that last week, and still a little bit this week. She gotted bronchitis.
    The couch adventure sounds like it must have been quite the sight!

  9. What a super-duper box, Tazo!

    Mom is No Fun before pre-coffee either.

  10. To heck with the shoe box. I'd go for a closet!


  11. Boy, Hurl Grey is a little stinker, and I bet you other two gets blamed for a lot of things he does. Your mama better take care of her cough, doesn't sound very good. We don't have kitties but our two ferrets drag a lot of junk under the couch. Hope you all have a better week than what has happened today. Purrs and headbutts to you furries.

  12. Tazo, that is a great box! And *giggle*, I know what you mean about moms and coffee. Mine is the same way!

    Please give Earl my love, and I'm sending him whiskie kisses. I'm so sorry I missed the Tuxie celebration yesterday!

    Love and cuddles from Dorydoo!

  13. We LOVE boxes!

    We know about bottoms ripped offa chairs. We love doing that. It gives us places ta stash mousies.

  14. Tazo, that was the funniest thing I've read in a long time! (Well, except the part where the coffee went on your mom.) I guess EG has quite the evil twin!

  15. We probably shouldn't be laughing but honestly a hidey hole in the couch - brilliant!

  16. What an interesting story about the couch. We hope no one gets stuck in it! The box sounds good! Sandusky here loves boxes. Leave a empty box anywhere and he will find it within minutes!

  17. hello tazo its dennis the vizsla dog hay i wood just like to poynt owt that i hav never ben under yore kowtch and thus i cud not hav mayd this hole and theirfore kleerly i do not destroy furnitcher ok bye

  18. Wow, talk about drama! HG's been quite busy, hasn't he? Too bad he couldn't keep your mom from discoverin' his stash.

    Oh, and, pore mom, too, for not bein' able to breathe. It's probably the lack of sleep and coffee. That would do it for my mom pretty fast!


Thanks fur stopping by!
