Wednesday Word of the Day—Flashback


Since TW has been busy and ignoring The Cat's needs, which include blogging and visiting The Cat's furrends, I thought I'd publish a rerun from January 4, 2010, which got about 5 views at the time. I hope you like it cos I have a feeling more of these may be on the horizon.

THE DISAPPEARANCE OF CK

Sunday at my house is laundry day. One thing I don't understand about laundry day is why, in 2010, The Woman sees the need to segregate the whites from the "colors" and isn't "colors" a derogatory word? (It feels good to finally get that off my chest.) Anyhow, this is a fun day for The Cat because first she gets to lay on the sheets while the peeps are trying to take them off the bed. They don't like that for some reason.

What they like even less is when I lay on Pop's clean—and very colorful—Old Navy boxers. Hey, these clothes are nice and clean and they're warm. What can be better than clean and warm for a cat looking for some place to sleep. Besides, if it's that important to you, you should put these right into the dresser.


After supper, TW finally put away the clean clothes in her closet. I rarely get to look into, let alone get into TW's closet. I jumped at the chance. Before you knew it, I was asleep and TW had gotten on the computer. Pop asked TW several times if she knew where I was and she didn't. (Cue the SINISTER MUSIC) Just where was Cathy Keisha and did anybody care?

Unbeknownst to the peeps, that dastardly HHGutt had locked Cathy Keisha in TW's closet. When I woke up, I started desperately scratching at the door to no avail. The tv was on and the peeps were otherwise occupied. I was losing hope that I'd ever be rescued. "You'll never get out. You'll die in there," taunted Guttierrez. I heard Pop asking about me again and then I heard him get up.

It was Pop to the rescue. He finally heard the scratching and rushed to open the closet door. I was free! Pop had once again saved me! He was once again my hero! Unfortunately, the peeps don't suspect a thing. They haven't a clue what my political enemy, HHGutt, did and that he was responsible for my being locked in the closet all evening. Pay back is a bitch; and, make no mistake about it, pay back will come for HHGutt. When he least expects it. He's now got a bulls eye on his back. You don't mess with this cat from the Hood.

  5. Very nice to meet you Cathy Keisha. This is our first time stopping by and we have subscribed. For a ghetto cat you have settled into all the duties of a house cat quite nicely. We've checked out your nemesis, and we definitely think you can take him. Hope you will drop by sometime and meet us. Purrs and hugs from the kitties at www.thecatonmyhead.com, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

  7. OMC, shut in the closet? That's low! We like to hide in the closet, so we have been shut in there before. Thankfully, we have always been rescued by the peeps, who then feel REALLY guilty and give us treats.

  8. It's a calamity that you were locked in. But what we want to know is was there payback and what form did it take? Come on, dish the dirt!! :)

  9. TW actually closes the door to her closet? Strange woman! Why bother - you only have to open it again later. And those boxer shorts: if they are going to be worn soon, why put them away at all?
    (our Dad does put his clothes away, but he doesn't like to put away papers and other stuff that he might need "soon". He feels more secure having it all out in piles he can see. Drives Mom nuts.)

  10. Do people still sort colors from whites? My son started doing his own laundry at the age of six because he didn't like pink underwear. Geoff washes his own clothes because he knows I am domestically challenged. I wash my own clothes and I love the color pink.

  11. Oh my cat. HHGutt BOUGHT it after that...didn't he???

  12. We are lame but we don't get eh HHGutt meaning. Sigh. Help us please.
    Thanks for your comment. Dad is supposed to land imminently. The wind and "Air Traffic Control" delayed his flight almost 3 hours. For a 2 1/2 hour flight, that is annoying.
    What Mom does not get about the weather forecast is that the temperature is not supposed to go below freezing tonight but they say 1-3 inches of snow accumulation. Huh???

  13. Oh, friend, this happens to me all the time. I usually curl up and go to sleep just to see how long it takes Mama or one of my supposed friends to notice I'm gone. In the end, Mama always says it's my fault. I don't think so. Purrs, Livia.

  15. I had no idea laundry day could be such an adventure... and so treacherous!

  16. CK--No need to worry about me: I *always* keep my distance.

    This was a pretty good story and I never saw it before because we did not start blogging until April 2010.

  17. Glad you were rescued; horrible memory we'd never forget either! Hugs & belly rubs!

  18. Ha ha and what was the payback from the cat from the hood that you certainly don't mess with? Have a terrific Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  20. Thank COD for Pop, CK! We bet you threw down with that HHGutt, huh?

  21. That was a HARROWING account of one of my nightmares. I think your revenge is best directed at TW.
    Why was TW not asking where you were???
    Why did POP have to come to your rescue???

    You're got plenty of revenge to plot.

  22. As a matter of fact, CK, the Human **DID** have the flu shot. Damn! But she guesses it is not 100% effective against every kind of germ out there. She is not going to school tomorrow, nor is she going to the Teacher Job Faire in Caturday which she is sposed to be in charge of. Not.Happening.

    She has not been this sick since she had the flu 10 years ago. Shoot! This needs to end soon! She got sick last Sunday night/Mon. morning, so this is really Day 4. She NEVER misses work either. Sigh. Not to mention MY inconvenience.
