A fone call and a narrow escape frum waring clothses

We called mom at work today. She answered da fone weird, it dint sound like her. She wuz all profeshunal and stuff, until she herd Zippy meowing on da uvfer end of da line. Me and Speedy were giggling in da bakground. Dis is a transkript, as far as we can amember frum wut we herd on da ixtenshun:

Mom: --- accounting department, how may I help you

Zippy: Meowr mrrr brrrrp

M: who is this?

Z: mrrrm mewow

M: Zippy - is that you, did we not discuss your use of the phone? It's not good for you to call me all the time, I might get in trouble.

Z: mowr, merp mrowr

M: at least speak english, you know my catish is bad.

Z: I said, can you come home now?

M: No, I can't come home now. What's the matter, why do you want me to come home?

Z: We just miss you, we all need snuggles

M: Oh, for pete's sake, you called me for this! Hang up the phone.

Z: Also, it's formerly feral, fruitbat and fashion Friday and you didn't post any pictures!

M: So, you're calling me to come home and post pictures? We have no fruitbat pics and you guys don't wear clothes, won't let me put any kind of fashion on you at all, as a matter of fact I was looking at the cute little shirt that we bought and thinking how nice it would look on you...

Z: Um, o.k. gotta go now - click.

Dat wuz close, she almost camed home to dress us up! Wait, I still need a snuggle! And der are no pikshers of us posted! Zippy can yoo call mom and haf her come home...

That was a great idea! We've never called Mom at work, but maybe we should try it when we're hungry or lonely for her, or...most important, if our litterbox needs cleaning!

Love,
Tipper

ROFMOL! When Dad calls Mom at werk, sumtimes Bonnie shouts in the background. So 1 time, it got recorded an when Mom played it back, Bonnie meowed an Mom's allergic naybor had a gigantic sneeze. Yup, he's so allergic to cats...
Clothes? NO FANKYOU.

I agree with George and his sibs. What a great idea. Sometimes I make noise in the background when mom is on the phone but Tommy's the really really loud one. My background chatter is cute and sweet. I'll have to try calling mom at work. Loved your conversation.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I put you site on my cat friend links. Hope that's o.k.

Boy, that was close, Zippy. Cats get along fine with their warm fur coats, even in cold Wisconsin. Be careful...

Catzee said...

I fink this was a furry good 'scuse to call. Kitties are more important than work any day.

Karen Jo said...

You are very clever cats to learn to use the phone to call your Mom when you need stuff. I loved your conversation. I hope your Mom forgot all about dressing you up before she got home.

Dragonheart said...

You are very clever cats! I'm impressed that you can call your mom at work.

You should let her dress you in the shirt, though. Clothes are fun to wear!

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa said...

uh-oh. did she try ta dress you up? we sure hope not. guess we'll stop harrassing our Lady too. she might get the same cutesy ideas.

Rascal said...

Hmmm. Your mom owes you some treats for this.

Rosie & Cheeto said...

HAHAHA, weve nevur thawt to call owr lady at werk. Why did she sownd so weird and professhunal? That's just silly if yoo ask us.

Gud call getting off the fone befour she tried to dress yoo up.

We'd luv to rite more but we gotta find a biznuss card of owr ladys so we can get hur numbur! Grate inspruashun, Zippy

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

How funny.

And kitties, that was a close one.

One-Eyed Jack said...

That was close! You gotta be more careful! You don't want to end up in clothes do you? I think we're kinda lucky, 'cause our OTW plays with her string at home so we can get snuggles and gooshy food and hallway visits whenever we ask!

Good work Zippy. I knew you could use the telephone. Now I'm just kinda wondering why you never call me....

And...I'm really sorry your friend Oliver was involved in a MVA. I'm glad you get to go visit with hm. Just be real careful around that VET They almost always want to poke cats with a Needle.
