Oh noes! Help, please! Mom is getting smart!

So, furriends, it's me, Colby. I needs ur help!

I have been *looks around furtively* sneakin' outside. How? I'm glad you asked.

Mom and Dad have a hole in the screened-in porch place!

I snuck out, and Mom brought me back in, and found the hole and covered it up.

Now, as you know, I am furry smart *preens*. So, even though they covered up the hole, I found a way out, by pushin' the covering-up stuff aside.

And Mom brought me back in, all grumblin', and made it harder, but I kept finding ways out.
So they put heavier stuff in front of the hole, and on the outside where the hole was, too, and it was LOT harder, but I ran all the way across the porch and did a body-slam into the heavy stuff, and pushed it away, too. 'Cause I'm smart AND strong.

But *sigh*, Mom Saw me.

And when they brought ME back in, Fancy, who is pretty smart, too, sneaked out!

At night.

And you know what? Beans don't see so good at night. They go stumblin' around. Isn't that weird?

They searched for Fancy lots and got scared, because this is her new home and Mom worried she would get lost and not know her way back. But Fancy came back, and Mom was happy.

Dad couldn't fix the hole, because he's been painting since we were getting Car Pets. And Mom and Dad wanted the door to the screened porch open when the Car Pet guys were putting in carpet, so they could move the furniture and stuff. So I could get out, but Mom and Dad got really tough, and when I did, Dad, who was getting mad because I am so smart, would put me in the little shallow pool and get my feets wet!

I did NOT like that!

I think they wanted to keep me from going out, but I just made sure I hid better so when I DID get out, they couldn't find me so well.

Mom put a collar on me wif my name and our phone number, which I hate because it has a tinkly bell thing, so I can't hunt like a Mancat.

I has all my yucky shots and stuff, so Dad says Mom should stop worrying, but Mom still does, and wants the porch fixed because she thinks I'll get eaten by a Woofy or sumfin'.

She's like that.

So, all this week, it's been me tryin' to be sneaky and get out, and Mom watching me like a hawk and not letting me have any fun.

But then! Mom got sneaky! Yes, Mom. Moms aren't supposed to be sneaky!

You know what she did? She let me go out on the porch again, BUT she put some strange thing called a PetCam around my neck! Only for a little while, but it got in my way when I went out (of COURSE I got out!).

I came back through the hole myself, and pretended I had been a goody -goody cat and not gone anywhere. And Mom took the Pet Cam off.

Anyway, once she took it off, I figured I was in the clear. Only the thing is...

Mom knows I went out! And, horror of horrors, she knows my bestest hiding places!


See, here in the first two pics, I'm pretending to be good, on the screened porch with Cheddar, who never escapes (I think he's just too skeered).

And then here I am running around, you know, hidin' in the grass. You can see our neighbor's houses and the trash cans and stuff.

So now what should I do?!

Mom knows where I hide, and she won't let me out without my collar, and I don't want to wear the Pet Cam thing around my neck because everyone will know where I go!

Well, I think it was a little Wrong of you and Fancy to sneak out. But those photos are amazing! My Mommie has been wanting one of those pet cams, but I never go anywhere interesting except all around the house. It is very funny to see where you have been.

ps: Our current e-mail address is:
I hope that one works okay!

Mommy & Daddy replaced our screens with pet proof screening. It is made of fiberglass and comes in a roll. You cut it to fit and roll in the splines to secure it. It looks a little thicker than regular screening, but you can still see through it. Our woofie can not even tear it. Mommy got it at either Lowe's or Home Depot. Mommy & Daddy installed it 1999 and there are no rips yet.

Firsts of all it is a big bad mean world out there and it is much nicer to just live on the insides with those you loves.. secondly my Mommas jaw is dropped open.. she thinks it is such a neat and wonderful idea!!! And just so cheeky!! What a fun "cats-eye" view :))

Hahahahah, we love that petcam! Where can we get one? I love it. You are such a smart kitty getting outside like that!

Sweet Purrfections said...

Wow! Your mom is getting sneaky and smart!

I can understand your urge to roam Colby, but for kitties who are essentially indoor kitties it can be rather dangerous. So please stay inside. Maybe your Mom & Dad could train you all to wear a harness and go for walks that way?

Colby, We would love one of those cameras. Having one of those is a good idea (or so Jan says). Even though your humans cheated, we're glad you're safe because of the PetCam.

We could stick one of those on Socks and then we could find out where he goes. The only problem is Mom might use it to spy on us too. ~Scylla & Charybdis

Colby, I admire your escape artist skills. ~Socks

Wow, that bloke Houdini has nothing on you Colby! While we admire your talents, we're glad that you're all safe inside again. That Petcam looks like a fun idea, unless you're the cat who has to wear it.
