Tuesday Lockup

AYLA: Well, todays lockup wasnt as long as Friday and Monday!  And the Strangers werent as noisey as before either, thank Bast...  But the lockup wasnt without some adventure. 

Marley made a break fer it when TBT opened the door to bring us some food at mid-morning.  TBT managed ta grab him by a back leg and pull him back into the room.  Marley did draw some blood on the way back in...

So he and I spent the time unner the dresser together.  Its "snug" unner there fer *ME*, so Marley had to be pretty annoyed ta squeeze himself in there too.  In fact, when TBT came and left the door open later, I couldnt get out until Marley did, and he hesitated a while.  I finally kicked him a few times until he squeezed himself out!  Iza just sits on top of the bed, so she could leave as soon as she wanted.

But we all went out and checked the house thoroughly, peeking around corners and listening carefully for the Strangers.  Then we went outside.

It was glorious.  SUNNY!!!  DRY!!!    I went straight up to my lookout spot and looked all around.  Right...
Front...
And Left.
Marley an Iza went straight down the deck stairs to the yard.  
They looked around carefully, too.  
And we all decided the Strangers were gone.
Unfortunately, TBT says the Strangers are coming back tomorrow AND Thursday.  The Thursday visit was a surprise to TBT too.  He says HE is feeling a bit locked up himself.  We were surprised by that, but he says he cant really do normal things himself while there are Strangers wandering around the house (and he worries about how WE are feeling).

At least the Thursday lockup will be short (he is told "about 30 minutes").  Then they will be gone.

Well, at least you got to go out and get some fresh air. Don't worry...it'll be over soon and the strangers will be gone.

We don't like strangers either! I like being outside but when someone comes too close to me too fast I get scared. I'm glad you guys got to go outside. Let's hope those strangers won't hang around long!

This does not sound like a fun week At All! At least you guys got to spend some time outside today.

Hang in there guys. The end is in sight. What have you negotiated with TBT by way of compensation?

@Megan: So far, we are demnding a few extra treats at mid-day, the egg filled with spillable treats 4 nights per week, and tossed treats the other 3 nights.

We WERE getting treats at mid-day, the egg 4 times a week, and the tossed treats every night. How are we doing?

Just a bit longer, furriends. We know how rotten this is for you.

The Menagerie Mom said...

I hope the Strangers finish up soon. Otherwise, you may all have to start wearing stripes so as to feel like proper prisoners. I sure hope you guys get a big reward from TBT once this is all done!

Oh it is so good that you investigated after the strangers left. I feel for you pals - not fun in lock up. My peeps were thinking about a lock up when the movers were here, but instead sisfur talked them into bringing me to their house. At least I have cousins to play with there.

The Swiss Cats said...

Oh, no, again ? We're glad you could check the house, and we hope that the strangers won't come again after that. Purrs

We think you'll get a new fun place to play after they're done--a new cat hockey rink!

MeezerMews&FrecklesWoofs said...

By the time those strangers are done, you might even be used to having them around, MOL!
Well, except fur the noises they make that is...

Yes, we can well imagine the TBT is feeling cramped in his style too. Hang in there!!
