Mary, Mary, quite, er, sweet actually

Here is what has been going on here. On Christmas morning mom got up at da usuall 5 am (hehe, did yoo think we'd let her sleep in!) and fed us and did Zippy's paw stretches and gots her coffee and went to brush Sadie...da usual morning ritchual. Den, she heard sumthing and went and looked out da window. Der, on our porch, was a little long haired tuxie cat. Mom opened da door, figgering she (well, we din't know she was a she yet) would run away home like all da other kitties dat use our porch to get out of da wind and grab a bite on der meanderings. But not Mary, she walked right in our house! Well, mom scooped her up (yes, not da best move mom, she coulda scratched yoo) and da kitty started purring! So, mom took her down to da foster room and looked at her bright yellow collar and found a rabies tag wifout a clinic name (ours haf our vets name and fone number) but in a little brass tag attached to da collar was her name and a fone number. Mom has been calling da number a cuppul times a day and leaving messajes fur da beans about Mary but no one answers and no one calls back. She tried to reverse look-up da number to get da address wifout any luck so today she is gonna haf da policeman dat lives next door do it. Den she is gonna go to da house and find out what is going on and if no one is home, cuz she suspects dat da beans is on vacation, she will leave a note fur who ever dat we found Mary and she is safe and to please call. Dad is already in love wif her and Speedy and Sadie haf been chirping wif her and playing pawzies unner da door. Mom thinks dat Mary has fur sibling(s) at home and dey prolly miss her lots. Speedy, of course, would like to keep her. Da more da merrier fur him. But mom figgers dat some poor pet sitter is beside demselves wif worry over da kitty dat slipped out and disappeared and won't pick up da messages on da machine cuz, well, it's not der fone. Mom would post some pikshers but dad misplaced da camera and dey can't find it! No pikshers from Krissmouse either cuz dad decided to clean off da top of da microwave afore company came and dat was where da camera was! Dad is kinda furgetful cuz of his acitement. Today is his last day at work, he is retiring and him and mom is gonna do some stuff on ebay. Dat means we will haf mom and dad wif us alla time...mom sez she'll prolly get a part time job cuz dad can be an irritant at times. Really mom, does 'at times' mean alla time? hehehe
Update-1:33 pm - Mary has been returned to her home! Her beans were so distrawt that she was missing they cut their vacation short and came home to help find her...

Oh, you have a visitor! Hope your mom manages to contact Mary's carer. SS is cat-sitting Charlotte and I'm sure she would be beside herself with worry if Charlotte goes missing.

Sometimes it's nice to have visitors for the holidays!

Mary is very lucky that your mom took her in! I hope she has a loving family who is worried about her.

I hope you can find the camera! Not having photos of Christmas is sad.

It is great that your dad is retiring! :) Good luck to your mom in finding a part-time job.

Your Mom is a very good person to take care of poor Mary. How could her family go off and leave her? That's terrible We're supposed to get 8" of snow today!!

Speedy dear, I'd be happy to come over and help you play pawsies under the door with her.

I am so glad that Mary is back home again. It was great of your Mom to take care of her until her beans came home. I think it's great that they came home early because they were worried about her.

Samantha & Tigger said...

The vet visit went fine! I just got all my shots. He looked at my teeth, they are fine, he gave me shots and said I was a good kitty for not biting and then he said I have to go on a DIET! I'm 2-3 pounds overweight and Tigger has to lose a couple of pounds, too! Oh my, I hope Tybalt doesn't think I'm FAT!!! And no temperature was taken!

Boy said...

Yay...gwad to hear that Mawy is safe and sound back home!

Victor Tabbycat said...

Sounds like Mary took a vacation, too! We's glad she found her way to your house so you could help her get home.

When it was just Bonnie an the fish, the beans went to Seattle an the pet sitter locked herself out. Bonnie was fine; the fish would be fine; but the sitter, a teen naybor, was really upset. Turned out Mom left a garage door opener in her car at her werk an sumone had the car keys, so the sitter's dad went to get it frum her werk! After feedin Bonnie an the fish, they gotted anofur key made.

I fink the moral is, beans should stay home wif their puddins an nefur go on bacation.

The Cat Realm said...

What a great story!!! We are happy that Mary is safely home - with really good beans, it seems! To cut a vacation short because of a cat - that is how ALL beans should be!!!!
Have a wonderful New Year!!!
