Remember Whensday

Yesterday, Winston Wilbur shared a story about how his kitty sister Tika ran into a little trouble at the litter box. I won't get into the particulars here, but let's just say Winston's Mom had quite an exciting start to her day.

It reminded me of a cold Spring morning some years back, when I got into a little bit of  trouble  at the crack of dawn.

If I remember correctly, it went something like this...

It's time for Mom to get up and get ready for work. and I follow her downstairs where she lets me out to do business, while she waits for me at the back door.
I run to the way back of the yard like I always do, and get started.
As I sniff around looking for the perfect spot to do my business, I smell a glorious scent near the back of the garage. I go over to investigate and find a tasty morsel. It's a dead baby bunny carcass that Mr Owl dropped when he was done with it. So I have at it.
Well, apparently, Mom noticed me chowing down on something and yells" drop it!!!" Mind you she is standing way off  in the doorway, as I stated earlier. so naturally I pay her no mind.

Next thing I know, Mom is running towards me, barefoot, in her t-shirt and underwear. She  screaming for Dad, who is sleeping upstairs, and flailing her arms all about.
She reaches me, looks down, and starts freaking out even more dramatically then before. She then swoops down, reaches into my mouth with her bare hand, and pulls out a hand full of fur and flesh.
Then, before I know it,  I am scooped up, whisked inside, with her shouting stuff about disease and parasites. She runs over to the sink and starts washing her hands, still screaming for Dad, who bleary eyed, saunters down to find us in this this mess.
In the end, after an emergency call to the vet, Mom being late to work, and Dad not wanting any kisses from me for at least 5 sleeps, I was fine.
As far as Mom knows it was too early and too dark for the neighbors to see the show. She's pretty sure they heard her though.

Any of you ever get their humans day off to a screaming start?


  1. Oh Wilma, what a classic tale of terrorizing our parents. So inspiring!

    Were we bloggie friends yet when I tried to eat that frog? Oh my. Very similar situation. I still laugh endlessly about it, momma still has nightmares. Here's the linky:

    Keep up the good work, Wilma. We've gotta keep these mommas on their toes.


  2. oh my god I'm crying. wilma, you little rascal!

  3. Hi Wil,

    OMP that is totally funny. Mum is sitting here horrified but I thinks that I would have done what yous did. Don't you thinks that our momma's totally overreact? What is up with that's. I ate an ear plug once and Mum freaked! Kizzy ate an elastic band and Mum freaked! One day they is gonna have heart attack!

    Oh and we just saw Pearl's comment. Oh she is another good one for having her momma freaks. Pearl even tried to eats chap stick too!

  5. Wow, what an exciting story! Hope the bunny carcass tasty and worth it!

    Drools and licks,
    Minnie and Mack

  6. Hello, the other Wilma. I haven't had anything like that...yet...hehe. But, I usually have 'accidents' in the middle of the night, but I really do it because I'm too lazy to ring my bell and go outside. Or use my litter box. Well, I don't think you should eat anymore dead bunnies. Poor bunny :(

  7. Oh My word Wilma what a story, BOL..

  8. We haven't been graced with dead critters in our yard yet, but you can bet our mom would wake the neighborhood, too. Heck, she probably would have thrown up which we would have eaten as well. It's a pug's life.

  9. Bawhahahaha! That's a funny one! My mom does that screaming and flailing her arms around like a crazy person thing, too. Fortunately, she has never run outside after me in her underwear - someone might call the police.

    Your pal, Pip

  10. Hola Chicos!!
    Ohh Wilma !! That why you are the Queen of Queen!! Oh poor of your Mamma!! we have not given any heart attack YET!! but you never know!
    Spongy & Licky

  11. oh my gosh Wilma
    That story,, our eyes got bigger and bigger as we read each word! Oh the panic your mama must have felt. Even though it is funny now, I know it was not before!
    I sometimes eat mousy parts that the kittys leave laying around,, and moms scream... so loud,, so we understand,,, and yes,, we remember the frog story from Pearly too....
    Parents don't know how tasty these things are!
