Monday Mayhem

Woo, everypup and almosteverycat!  It's me, Dave!  Talk about crazy, mad, mayhem!  ...and I guess today is Monday and this happened over the weekend, but "Monday Mayhem" has a nice ring to it.  Woo.

Anyway, so there we were, settling in for Movie Night...

Zim, settling in for movie night
"What are we going to watch tonight, anyway?  Who's got the remote?"

...when Mom said she needed to do some more watering out front.  Zim and I offered to go with her, but since it was still over 100 degrees out, she said she'd handle it.  If only we'd known what was going to happen out there!!!  

Look who was waiting for her out on our brick path!!!

"Well, well, well!  And where are those boys of yours?"

Oh, no! Mom, look out!!!  It's Maude the Bully Cat!!

"Ah... they're inside, are they?  So you're all alone...?"

And then... before she could do anything about it... brace yourselves, friends!!!  Mom was ... Mom was attacked by the Bully Cat!!!

"Mmmmrrrrrowwwwww!  Purrrr... purrrr..."

Oh, sure. She's acting all cute and snuggly and stuff... but that's MY mom's foot and I'M the one who's supposed to snuggle up to it!!!

"Can you believe that?!?!"

I was shocked, as you can imagine.  I did my utmost to get in extra snuggle time during the movie - and showed Mom how skilled I am in that department.  I don't want some bully cat messing with my job security!  It's crazy, mad, mayhem!!!


PS:  EDIT:  I got so caught up in the mayhem that I forgot something VERY important!  It's my kid brother Zim's Gotcha Day!!!!  TEN years ago today, he joined our family!  Happy Zimaversary to the very best brother a guy could ask for!!  Woooooo!!!  Click here to read his adoption story!  Stinky Goodness treats for EVERYONE!!!!  


  1. Oh No!!! Now you are going to have to work extra hard to snuggle AND get the bully cat smell of mom's sneakers.... :)

  2. Oooh, poor Dave. I bet that bully cat is very lonely you know. See how desperate she was for a bit of fuss? She didn't get to enjoy snuggling up for movie night did she? There, feeling better now :)xx

  3. Good thing for the bully cat it is still hot and you weren't out there..hehe we know what we would have done
    Happy Zim Gotcha Day!

  5. Wow. Unbelievable! Shocking! We're just stunned! Good thing your mom was able to escape & come back in to woo for some proper snuggling. Did it take a few minutes to settle her down after that attack?

    Happy Zimversary, Zim!
    Mom says we'll get an extra treat in honor of your gotcha day!
