Tuxie and tattletail Tuesday

Hah, dad tried to use taking care of us as an excuse for da house being a mess! He did vacuum and try to stay out of mom's way most of da day cuz she had lazers coming out her eyes and steam coming outta her ears. Da neece was here cuz she came down wif a frend Friday afternoon to see some frends but da frends weren't home so she stopped by here and her frend was suppose to go see his gramma but HE NEVER CAME BACK! She left a couple of voice mails on his fone and he finally called her back and sed his gramma was purrty sick and would she mind if dey stayed until Sunday. Well, dad couldn't very well say no when da gramma was sick and besides, he needed her to scoop litter (cuz he don't do dat). Okay, we will say we kept him purrty bizzy, he duzzent unnerstand us like mom does so when we meow at him it takes furever fur him to figger out what we want! And den Zippy was barfing a lot and he kept thinking she was really sick (she's not) so he spent a lot of time "checking on" her. He tried to do her paw stretches on Saturday morning and she screamed at him and tried to bite him. We all laffed cuz mom does 'em and da nefew does 'em and now even da neece does 'em. She just doesn't like daddy to do dem. Things are getting back to normal now. Here are some tattles on daddy:
1 - He has really sensitive skin and breaks out in blisters when he uses dish soap, but, we haf a dishwasher and he won't load it because he is lazy.
2 - He gags when we do poopy in da litter but he won't scoop it out because he is lazy, and it makes him gag.
3 - He will take da sheets off when Zippy barfs but he doesn't clean da barf off first because he is lazy.
4 - He is not allowed to touch mom's washing machine cuz he broke it, twice.
5 - He won't vacuum up our furs on da carpet because he is lazy.
6 - Zippy will let almost anyone do her paw stretches, if dey know how, except fur daddy. We think it's her way of punishing him fur letting mom go away.

Ah, so you kitties are playing up on daddy. Your mom needs to go away more so he can get used to looking after you. Just kiddin'

Wow, lots of tattles on your dad! Our dad generally won't scoop the litterbox either - that was the deal he and our mom made when they got Dragonheart. Dad would only scoop the litter if mom is really sick or if she's away.

Our dad scoops as much as mum, but he's no good wiv the vacuuming. Whem mum broke her leg she wuzn't allowed to do anyfing cuz it wuz bad wiv lots of breaks in it, and she wuzn't allowed to move it. Dad did the vacuuming and told her it wouldn't work and it smelled funny.She looked at it and the bag had burst and our furrs were efurrywhere in it. He said he didn't know he had to change the bag when it wuz full!
He did all the cooking and washing until mum wuz allowed to use her crutches. Mum sez in a way breaking her leg wuz a good fing cuz it taught dad to be able to do efurryfing furr himself.
Mum sez we haf to tell you that he did do lots of fings to help befurr that though.
I helped by lying on mum's cast and guarding her leg.

Wow, when the Moms get laser eyes and the steam from the ears it's realy bad!
We all just went and gave Daddy a group hug. He does all of that stuff now. But there was a time he would not scoop. He still gags, but he scoops!

My male human gags when he does the litter as well, so he covers his mouth with a big scarf and only does it under extreme duress. PATHETIC!

Human mans are such wimps! teeheehee!

Ana said...

Oh, your poor Daddy. He seems to be a bit overwhelmed :-)

The Crew said...

Boy oh boy, when Mom's are shooting lazer eyes, everyone better get out of their way!

Our Dad only scoops if Moms asks him to (otherwise our box would be overflowing) and doesn't do a very good job. He only loads the dishwasher if Mom asks him and never changes the bed or does laundry.

Mom says she's positive our Dads are related!

Love

PB & J said...

Hmm, sounds a lot like our Daddy! Except our Daddy scoops (but only cause our boxes are down near his Man Cave and he hates the smell). Maybe they are cousins?!

Zippy, you had the right idea, punishing daddy because he let mommy go away! I bet your mom's laser eyes are SUPER scary.

Angus Mhor said...

The Sandy Man seems similarly without ability when it comes to such things as your dad..he's got that whole gag thing goin' on, too!

Max said...

Heh...does he know yer tattling on him? I would totally do the same thing.

Jimmy Joe said...

Oh man, buddies, we keep laffing and laffin at the mess your daddy and the neece made. Your poor momma, coming back to a messy house. I think Zippy thought of a very good punishment.
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

Mums just do things best! It's that simple.

Camie's Kitties said...

Our Papa is pretty handy around the house, but thankfully, he doesn't have to scoop the poop so to speak. Because of our littermaid, and our setup, Mom says he doesn't have to do that, but he does take Camie for walks and he will clean up her poops.

We hope your dad learns how to help your mom more.

Kelly Cat said...

Let's not be too harsh on your human daddy. He must understand that vacuum monsters make loud noises that hurt kitty ears, so he's just waiting for a good time before he vacs.

Sunny's Mommy said...

Your Daddy sure has lots of excuses. If he spent as much time doing something constructive as he did giving excuses, he could have loaded the dishwasher and turned it on :-p It's not that hard to do.

I think he needs to take some lessons from your Mom in how to do some things around the house - the things he can do without any problems.
