It’s a Wonderful Life!

So I know I haven’t been writing much lately, but I’ve had other things on my mind.

Rumpy has a crush on a pit bull that lives one block down. He wants to walk down that street every morning. During our evening walk he heads down the street past the pit bull’s home, then doubles back to pass it again. Yeah, it’s that bad. Pit bull stands at the door barking and wagging his tail like mad, while Rumpy pretends to not be interested but leaves pee-mails like crazy.

Let’s go see my friend!

Yours truly has been sporting a shiner, courtesy of none other than the evil one himself, June Buggie. Friday night/Saturday morning Buggie decided he wanted to sleep on my head. I pushed him away. He came back yet again and when I tried to remove him the third time he swatting me with both front paws. The next morning I work up with a black, swollen eye.


This is what I saw in the mirror the next morning.


This is a week out. My glasses make it less noticable.

June Buggie is oblivious to having caused me injury. He is so ornery these days. I know it’s because of the hyperthyroidism, but still, does he always have to be in my face with something?


Don’t let that innocent look fool you. This guy needs Batterers Intervention treatment. 

Ah, life is never a dull moment, is it?

About Jen and the Furries

Hello and welcome. I’m a 50 something woman who’s probably awake when she should be sleeping. Oh, and there are animals, because who doesn’t have pets?

  2. isn’t that crazy how they act? easy does the same with a girl who lives next to us… she turns into a ball when she sees him while her tail turns into a helicopter, while Easy writes only a message on her gate :o) I’m so sorry that you got this cat-too, hope it heals up quickly…

  10. Hehehe! Rumpy’s so cuuuuuute! 🙂

    And June Buggie, you can’t ALWAYS sleep where you want! You probably wouldn’t like it if I used you as a pillow! 😉

  11. Jen: “…does he always have to be in my face with something?”
    Buggie: “Yes. Yes, I do.”

    Rocket puts his paw on OurGirl’s eye in the morning if he wants a treat and she’s still in bed pretending to be asleep. Fortunately, he knows enough to keep his claws tucked in. He’s going to call Buggie later and remind him about that.

    Does Rumpster know the PitPup’s name? Maybe they could have a playdate with beer and a game of pool some time!

  18. That’s cute about Rumpy having a crush on that pittie. 🙂

    Sorry about the shiner, courtesy of June Buggie. We hope you’re all better soon, Jen.

  19. Yikes! At first look, he doesn’t “look” at all like a Golden Gloves boxer. Get better soon. 😉

  20. Dogs love to visit their friends. One of Molly’s besties is a giant pit bull named Roxie. They can spot each other blocks away.
    Cats. They all think if you are laying down, you’re their pillow….and will impress that fact clearly to you. Whew.
