Grounded

Mom, I'm sorry, really. I didn't mean to jump up on the fence in the side yard when you weren't looking, and when you told me to get down, I really didn't mean to jump into the neighbor's yard. I'm sorry Dad had to break into their back yard 'cause they weren't home and had, like, three latches on their gate. And I'm sorry Dad had to hand me over the fence to you while you were standing on a ladder. Its just, well, its so nice outside, I just had to see what was on the other side! But I was a little scared, and I know I was shaking when you hauled my sorry a#$ into the house, telling me how bad I was. Please don't ground me for life, I really would not have gone far. Please, please take me out tomorrow, I promise to be good

Oh dear Tara... not good, not good at all.

Tara - didn't that happen to you once before at your mountain house. Your beans need to learn not to scare you when you jump on the fence. It just makes you run from them.

Oah Tara,
Maybe ground day or 2 is good for you and for your beans. Both of you and your bean sides are very shocking I am sure.

Let me give you a hug :)
I am sure in door are also good to play, ok :>

Dear Tara,
This does not sound good...we is skeerd to go to the outside since mommy never ever ever lets us out. Be careful if you do go to the outside again, 'kay? It's a skeery place.

Very truly yours,
The Whiskers & Purrs Gang

Oops, Tara! We guess that they need to keep your lead attached to your harness. Back in Canada, our mom used to attach a really long lead to her Siamese, Whiskers' harness, so he had lots of room to explore, but couldn't accidentally escape.

So, what are fences for if not for jumping over to see what's on the other side? Go Girl!

oh Tara! that was naughty but understandable. i hope you aren't grounded long. remember, we would miss you so much if you wandered to far away!

Scout said...

Rutro!!! Tara, you are *not supposed* to leave your own fenced area... Bad things could be there and they could eat you up!!!

Daisy said...

Oopsie, that was a little mistake you made.

Junior said...

Don't you dare go on a walk about like Mao did! Our hearts can't handle it when our friends disappear!

Derby said...

OOpps. Ya gotta stay in your own yard!

Max said...

You know what? That was so traumatizing to you that you need something to make you feel better. Like shrimp and kitty crack. Your people really should give some to you. Or even crunchy treats. Because truly, when a kitty goes through that, the people need to do everything possible to assuage their nerves.

scapin is not good

Tamra Maew said...

Uh oh! Short leash for you now... Do a few cute looks and some purrs and your mischief will quickly be forgotten.

Purrrrs, Tamra

P.S. It's a little brother, now I know how it must have been for you when Kavan first came to live with you but I doubt this thing will ever be as great a mancat as Kavan is. How do I get him off my tail?

Princess said...

Looks like you will be on harness and leash forever now...
drat!

DaisyMae Maus said...

Hmm ... This sounds just a tad like deja vu, Tara. Your parents have gotten a bit wise to you.
