Disturbing the Morning Routine!

Woo, everypup and almost everycat.  It's me - Dave.  You know how Zim told you about our morning routine?  Well, it was more like the Spring routine - where we go for a walk, then have coffee on the deck. Even though it's been pretty warm here lately (100 degrees Fahrenheit, give or take), we can still go hang out on the deck in the morning because it's all shady there.  So there we were yesterday...

I was getting all nice and relaxed, like this:

Then I struck a different pose and Mom snapped it with her iPhone and did some sort of weird effects on it with her Instagram app - like this:

And then Mom looked over at Zim and saw him doing this:

He was play bowing and trying to reach his feety-feet under the gate at the top of the stairs! Mom got up to see what he was doing (she was afraid there was a big bug or spider or something that starts with an "sn" and rhymes with "lake"...).  Imagine her surprise when she looked over the railing and saw ... this:

Can you tell who it is? On OUR deck?!?

That's right - Maude, The Bully Cat. On our deck!  Did I mention that part yet?

Talk about disturbing the morning routine!  Woo!  I like laying there listening to the birds, watching the occasional bunny hop by, seeing friends walk their bipeds past the house ... but the Bully Cat?  Joining us on the deck?  I think that's going a bit too far!



  1. I think Maude wants to be a Siberian Husky and just hang out with y'all. But she realizes she's a cat and it makes her mad, so she goes into "bully" mode. Just my opinion! ;)

  2. Good thing you guys have that gate to protect you!!

    Mom loves the first pic of you....all flat out on the deck!

  3. Maude sure likes to hang out with you guys! Didn't she start coming around after those giant transformer creatures were in the neighborhood? Maybe she's a spy for those creatures!

  4. Sneaky, sneaky, sneaky!! I wonder if she's trying to plan a takeover of the Ao4 compound?


  5. Oh that Maude is just inviting himself right on in.

  6. Wow... Maudes trying to take over!

  7. That bully cat is not to be trusted! Just look at her face.


  8. Oh my goodness, Dave!!!! I think she is trying to move in with you! Look at that face!! You'd better be careful - before you know it, that kitty will be in all your beds...yes, even that new flat one - hee! hee!

  9. Hi, Dave!
    That is soooo distrubing!
    Kisses and hugs

  10. Monty will head right over if you need help taking that cat on!


  11. Maybe Maude will reform her ways and become your pal?

  12. That Maude sure makes herself right at home in your yard, guys!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  13. Atleast the Bully Cat was minding its own business. I hope it doesn't think about coming up the stairs or else, it's going to be a dead kitty.
