I'm In Serious Trubble!

AYLA:  The Big Thing is very upset wif me.  He says I just became an indoor kitty!

Well, I knew he was unhappy wif my gettin over the big fence and wanderin aroun fer hours and not comin back when called lots.  But I relly made it all wrong Monday.  Ya see, he hadda bring the puter ta be repaired and leave at Noon.  But it was only 9 am an it was cold out so he figured I wouldn't stay out long.  He called at 11 am, and every few minnuts after.  I heard him OK an he could see me outside the fence but I wouldnt come back in.  He even pushed leavin later than he wanned to.

He finally had ta leave.  He says that made him miss his appointment, which meant he hadda wait fer a whole extra hour just ta drop off the puter and drive home.  He's used ta that kinna stuff, so he wasnt real upset.  But when he got home, I still wouldn't come in an he was getting real worried cause of the cold.  I'd been out 6 hours!

Then one time he called an he heard me call behind him.  He looked around and dint see me, cause I was up on the roof!  Then I came runnn to the roof edge cause I wanned ta come IN.  It was cold an windy up there an I couldnt get down!

How did I get up there?  Well, Im not tellin in case he figures out how ta stop me...  He figures I either jumped 6 whole feet up from the deck rails ta the roof or I climbed the huge tree and either jumped or fell from the big branch over the roof 20 feet above.  But Im not sayin which.  Let him figure it out.

But Im gettin ahead of the story...

So there I was at the edge of the roof by the deck with him askin me ta jump down.  UH-UH, that looked too far and hard.  So he ran an got the stepladder and set it up.  It reached right to the gutter, but I ran back to the chimbly ta keep out of the wind.  I cried at him efrytime he called my name, but I dint wanna come to the ladder.

He was annoyed cause I run up an down the stepladder in the basement fer fun.  So he also put up the big xtention ladder cause I go up an down that too.  Ya may remember me doin that when I was younger.

I think I may have been gettin the woozies from the cold.  It was about 20 degrees and the wind was blowin hard.  So TBT climbed up the ladder ta the roof.  He doesn't like heights like I do.  In fact, it took him a few minnits to get off the ladder onto the roof.  Then he crept toward me callin my name.  That was actally fun.  Until he grabbed me, that is.  He was faster than anny snake!  I grabbed him back with all claws right inta him.

I even got a claw inta his nose an made it bleed bad.  But he wasn't lettin go of me and I wasn't lettin go of him.  He shuffled carefully down ta the stepladder I like ta run up an down in the basement, but I wasn't having annything ta do wif THAT!

I wouldn't go down.  I grabbed the roof, the gutter, the stepladder and TBT wif every claw I had.  He  cried and begged but I wasnt goin!  Then he held me inside his light jacket in the wind an the cold hopin I would calm down.  I refused!  He was about ta drop me down onna deck, but he shuffled over ta the xtension ladder I used so easily in 2008.  He may as well tried ta push a pig down a baftub drain...

I've done it before all easily and liked it.  But not THIS time!

He sat there tryin desperately to figure out how ta get onna ladder holding me, but he couldnt.  He was getting woozy from the heights and feelin sick.  He finally forced me down a step atta time  while guardin the roof so I couldn't get back up.  I finally went down awkwardly one step atta time.  Me, awkward?  He followed.

Ya know what I did when I got onna ground?  Do ya?


I ran off over the fence!  I stayed away fer 4 more hours (an it was after dark then) in spite of him callin me efry 10 minutes the whole time.

I finally decided it was too nasty outside an came in.  I ran to eat some food (which was happily offerred), then I went an curled up on his lap.  That's when he told me the bad news...

I am an indoor kitty now.  In fact, we are all pretty much indoor kitties now.  LC doesnt wanna go out much annymore, an Iza has nefer really liked outdoors much.  5 minnits out on the deck fer her an she is ready ta come in.  But TBT says that they are allowed out cause they dont wanna be out much, while I am not allowed out cause I like it too much.  An he says specially that he aint goin up on that roof again.

He says he is real sad cause he likes havin kitties outdoors wif him like in gardening weather.  Mebbe he will relent when the whether gets nice again an it is safe to be out all day, but he seems pretty woorried and upset about me right now.

I guess I really made some mistakes Monday!

Oh MY, what an ordeal! We are very happy that you are safe and warm inside. Being an inside kitty isn't so bad but we do understand how nice it is to be able to let you out in the Spring ... but ONLY if you can be trusted! ;o) We are hoping that TBT's nose is all better now? *purrs and puppy kisses*

Cat with a Garden said...

It might be a good idea to keep a low profile after all this. TBT must have been so worried and angry at the same time! We're relieved nothing serious happened, although mom says that those scratches must be quite ouchy. We're pretty sure that he will let you out again come Spring. And Siena is actually impressed by your escapism skills. Mom gives her the don't you dare glare. We'll all be good kitties, okay?

Sweet Praline said...

I'm sure TBT was very worried about you. I don't know what it's like outside because I'm an indoor only kitty. It's not so bad.

Darling Millie said...

Hot diggity Iza! You ROCK! What a day you had! I bet TBT said lots of bad werds! That must have been so exciting.

I agree with Cat in the Garden. You're gonna have to keep a low profile after this for a while though. If you're lucky maybe TBT will forget come summertime!

Cory said...

I'm gonna have to turn this one over to Jonesie...

Jonesie here! Ayla, you really screwed up this one. The first rule of being a garden cat is coming in when called, especially when it's freezing cold or dark. You can get away with it more in the summer time. If you want to catch birdies or help TBT with his garden you need to keep a low profile for awhile.

Pee Ess: I was impressed with what you did even if it was naughty.



JC said...

You can go out on a leash ... tell the big guy .. or a cage thingy .. he can buy one or build one for you.

(I don't let my purr gang out anymore ... one time Ashton was gone for 3 days ... indoor only now)

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Oh Ayla, you were not very nice at all. That was a horrible thing to do. You are lucky he was so nice to go up and get you!

Alasandra said...

First we are very glad you are OK Ayla. And yes we thinks you messed up bad but TBT will forgive you. Our beans always forgive Scylla. She pulls the get up on the roof and I needs help getting down trick and Socks who is AWOL (although now that it is really cold he comes in at lunch time and stays in). And according to Artemisia being IN is far better then being OUT. She doesn't even ask to go outside. In fact she hasn't even set paw in the garage. So we guesses you should just enjoy being in while it is cold and maybe you will be ungrounded once the weather is nice. ~AFSS

The Island Cats said...

Ayla, we think you learned a real important lesson Jonesie said, you gotta come in when called. We hope TBT's memory fades by summertime and you'll be able to go out then....

Mary said...

Uh-oh, Ayla. You was really, really bad! The Womun says she mighta been tempted to just leave you up on that roof all night!! You are lucky TBT rescued you from up there and you shoulda gone in with him 'stead of runnin off for all those hours!! Hoominz have short memories though, so maybe if you are really really really good, you might get paroled in that spring.

Still, I'm impressed with your mad outdoor skills!


THE ZOO said...

Ayla yoo shuld hafe known better. anyfing kuld hafe happened to yoo. yoo better mind yur daddy.

Karen Jo said...

Ayla, you really messed up this time. I am glad that it all ended happily, but you have to learn to come in when you are called or you will be an inside kitty forever.

Parker said...

Alys, Ayla, really oughta' know better...
Those are exactly the types of things that get us in deep deep deep trouble with the 'rents.
I am just glad you ae OK!

milocat said...

Uh oh! Norty (altho we secretly admire wot yoo did!)

TBT musta been very scairt. And he coulda fallen off the roof too. So praps it's not a good idea.

We're glad yoo're safe now, and TBT is safe too. He'll hafta get yoo a leash. We're only allowed owt on a leash. :sigh:

Wow what an exciting story ! I just lived every moment with both of you ! I can imagine how it was, we once had Arthur up in the wheeping willow tree and he couldn't get down. Mr. G. climbed up with a ladder and when he arrived where Arthur was sitting, Arthur suddenly jumped from branch to branch and arrived on the grass while Mr. G. was now sitting in the tree and couldn't get down. Cats !! I think it's better for you to stay inside for a while especially with this bad weather, when spring will come I suppose you will sing so loud to get out that TBT has to change his mind. that happened with Arthur too !

Jan's Funny Farm said...

You guess? We figure you'll be lucky to get outside again when you're 33 and old enough to live on your own.

Max said...

Trust me, it's safer inside. And you'll get used to it... or maybe petition for a screened in porch so you can be outside and inside at the same time. I've been working on that once for YEARS and I'm pretty sure I'm =this= close to getting it...

Shaggy, Scooby and Scout said...

What got into you Ayla?
Not coming when you're called, disappearing, jumping on the roof, and making the Big Thing execute a daring rescue, then fighting with him when he's trying to save you??!!
We expect you will yowl and argue with him when you want to go out again, but if Big Thing sticks to his plan you will get used to it and being in will be the new norm.

DaisyMae Maus said...

Ladies ... To be quite honest, I don't know how you HAVEN'T been indoor kitties your whole lives! We NEVER go outside 'cept in a PTU to go to the v-e-t. Concatulations on "screwing up" enough to get grounded.

Derby said...

Ayla you had TBT so worried and climbing up on roofs is not something beans like to do.

Maybe he will forgets by spring or maybe let you out on a leash. I only go out in my porch or strickly snoopervised by mum.

Everycat said...

Ayla you are made of devils!! We love it when cats lead their apes on such a merry dance, but we think you are gonna have to be extra well behaved to get your outdoor priveledges back.

To all of you, thank you so much for your kind words to us on the loss of our darling Angel. It means so much that you cared about us at such a sad time. We miss her so much.

Kaze, Latte, & Chase said...

Ayla!! That was very very bad, yet very very meezerly of you at the same time. I can see why he was so mad at you, the Lap Lady would have been freaking out the whole time so he was pretty darn brave to get up there.

Latte is the only one of us that loves the Out of Doors so maybe it is a seal point meezer thing? He always has to have his harness on when he goes out because he just loves it too much. Indoors is good- VERY good.


The Crew said...

Well Ayla, I usually side with the cat, but in this case I must agree with TBT. You could have been seriously hurt or even deaded! We're much safer living indoors. If you want to go out in the nice weather, wear a harness where you can be controlled and SAFE!
