Tattletail Tuesday

I missed mancat monday because dad kept mom hopping all day long. First he was gonna help her by washing his garage towels so dey would be ready fur da spring but he put in to much soap and da machine clogged up. He hadda take da hoses apart and dat put mom back a couple hours on getting any laundry done. Den he was gonna help her by running da rug sucking monster and he couldn't get it to work! He hadda take da big tank in da basement apart cuz something was wrong with the motor. Den he was doing some stuff on da pooter and it kept going crazy, mom finally did a hard re-boot and reset it to a past time den she cleaned up da old files and stuff. While she was doing dat, dad made a mess of da kitchen making himself a snack...and mom has company coming fur brunch tomoro! Dad sed his day was so bad he shoulda stayed in bed (and mom agreed). We haf been trying to catch up wif visiting but wif dad putting so much strain on mom's time she doesn't haf hardly any left over fur us. It's about time she gots her priorities straight. I am putting my paw down, no more "taking care of" daddy. He has apposable thumbs and can help himself!

It's a bad bean week for sure. We have been being ignored too!

Eric and Flynn said...

Uh-oh sounds like it's better furr your mum when your dad duzn't help her.

Mickey said...

Ya know, I find that from time to time our beans get into stuff and we get ignored. We need to remind them what's important.
Yes your Dad has opposable thumbs but help himself??Mom is giggling. She says your Dad is probably like Andy Capp( an old comic character)

Sometimes, when I'm trying to help my mom do something and a CAT-astrophe occurs, she turns to me and says, "Who ya helpin'?"-is that sarcasm?

Vincent and Mike said...

Yep, da kitties should always come first, heehee. Mombean says she has days like dat sometimes, though.

Diamond Emerald-Eyes said...

I think your dadbean should be locked up in a room somewhere so he can't get into any more trouble. Sheesh.

Gandalf & Grayson said...

Wow, Dad kept breaking stuff, huh? That's terrible. Did they at least make it up to you with unlimited Temptations or something?

Bounce, Lucy and Trixie said...

Sounds like your dad did not have such a good day. Dads should not take Mom's attention away from the top priority - looking after the kitties!

Tybalt said...

Right on, Speedy!

Maybe you and your sisters can get together and find your dad another keeper besides your mom.

Sultanfus and Guy said...

Wow I guess your Dad doesn't get any treats today. Thats o.k more for you guys!

Kellie The Orange Cat said...

Oh Speedy! That is the cutest picture of you!

Wow, your beans had quite the day yesterday - I agree with your Dad he should have stayed in bed, they you could have cuddled with him and gots a nap.

what a sweet picture of you. sigh, those daddy's, how can they be so helpless? mommy has tried and tried to train my daddy, but he can't even seem to remember "unmentionables don't go in the dryer!

i hope you help your mommy relax today after such a tough day yesterday.

PB & J said...

Wow - our Daddy is about as helpless!

Sunny's Mommy said...

Boy, your Daddy sure does need a lot of help! What would he do without your mom??

The Meezers said...

wow is your dad still glad he retired?

Boy said...

How could your Dad take up so much of your Mom's time and weave you guys without any? That's just too bad!

MoMo said...

Yep, definitely put your paws down and demand attention.

Artsy Catsy said...

Whoa, maybe we're not too sorry after all that we don't have a dad to "help" our mom!

Forty Paws said...

Rather than what The Meezers said, Is your Mom still glad your Dad retired? Is she looking for a job outside the house now?

The Crew said...

Speedy dear, I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to come over to comfort you yesterday.

Our Dad is the same way. Mom is always cleaning up after him!

Love

We can relate! If I wouldn't do some visiting today - nothing would get done! The boys (Karl and Ruis) are still at the Spa with no intention to come home - the staff claims they are "busy" all the time and Emil just wants to fool around.....
Sometimes it can't be helped....

Fox's Mom said...

People keeps saying she wishes her friend would come back the the States and be our Dad, but after reading your post, purrhaps Gonzo and I can continue being fatherless children, lol!

Mozart (OK,and Gonzo!)

Kimo & Sabi said...

Yer dad and our dad must be related!

Jimmy Joe said...

Hahahaha, that sounds like Poppa! Granny is always grumbling about having to snoopervise him. It's too much for my cousins Sassy and Sophie and Oreo to handle.
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

Oh no, you must not be neglected on account of dad. He does have those disposable thumbs and can do many things with them!

Tesla said...

Looks like a nice comfy place you've got there. Thank you for your kind words!

hehe That sounds like our daddy trying to help out abound the house! Momma could usually get it done better and in half the time if he would just go somewhere else. ~Queen Snickers
