Wednesday Word: Hero

Due to breaking news, we have to postpone our scheduled post, More Posing and Posturing. We take you now to the Cat News Network (CNN) where they're innerviewing Hero Cat Cathy Keisha.


CNN: CK, can you describe to us what happened at about 1 a.m. this morning and how you came to be hailed as a hero?

CK: It was late. TW and I had just settled down to sleep after she finished her fussing. Out of the corner of my eye, I spotted something big and hairy on the bed, besides TW, of course. I knew TW would never see it and I knew I had to save her from it. I tell you, humans are so clueless. I saved TW's worthless life but did I get thanks? No, I got "are you crazy??" Well, she thanked me later so I guess that's better than nothing.

CNN: CK, continue please.

CK: As I was saying, the lights were out and TW had finally turned the iPawd off and was settling down when suddenly I jumped. Something wasn't right in that bed. When TW turned around to look, I was crouched on the comforter. I never step foot on the comforter. She thought I was fixing to attack her. That's when she hissed the line about me being crazy.

The evidence w/my furs.
She quickly rolled out of bed to defend herself—as if—and saw me crouched beside HHGutt. She axed me what was going on. Now she was afraid I was gonna have an asthma attack cos of how I was crouched. In the middle of her question, I leaped up in the air and dove offa the bed. That's when she knew I saw some intruder that wasn't supposed to be sharing the bed with us. She turned on the big orange rock light; and, even in the dim light, her ancient eyes could see what I had my eyes on. She thinks it was one of those mothy things since she had the window open after it got dark. They always fly in even knowing that a killer cat lives here. Of course, it could've just been one of HHGutt's pet flies.

Anyway, it was HUGE—like Mothra and Mothzilla rolled into one. I fought with it and knocked it off the bed, leaving a wet souvenir of the intruder on the sheet. I tussled with it on the floor. TW tried to whack it with her slipper but I wouldn't let her. I didn't want to spoil the flavor. I wrestled with it a good 5-10 minutes before I subdued it. I messed him up good! On account of its monstrous size, it took awhile before I could stuff it into my mouth. What a nommy bedtime snack.

CNN: Did the human finally thank you?

CK: Yes, when it was all over, TW thanked me. She's still thanking me. She knew I'd saved her life. It could have crawled up into her ear and killed her. Like all clueless humans, she was then upset cos I kept on high alert for the next 20 minutes or so. For some reason, she doesn't lay down until I get comfortable and close my eyes.

I have my lasers on and I'm in a state of high alert after I offed the intruder.
I was looking for another snack. You can see HHGutt in the foreground.

So there you have it! Excitement at La Condo Keisha. To recap, Cathy Keisha attacked a nighttime intruder to save her human's life. Friday we'll return you to your regularly scheduled post.

What a night! Have you ever saved your human's life? Did it make the Cat News Network? I hope so.

Oh my dear!! You are every so brave and such a hero! Please let me cover you in smoochies, to honor your awesomeness!

That was quite impressive, CK! Sadly, the moths around here have been few and small this season, so I have been deprived of a) an opportunity to show my life-saving prowess and b) a nice nighttime snack.

Kjelle Bus said...

You are every so brave and such a hero , CK !
I would never have dared to save my human like that :)
XOXO

Molly The Wally said...

Not only are you stunning Keisha you are brave too. A hero for sure. We shudder to think what would have happened if you had not been there to save mum. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
Best wishes Molly

You really are a hero, CK! Way to save TW's from that frightening thing. We hope she showed her appreciation.

WOW CK.....what an amazing story! You're so brave to take on that fierce flying intruder (and I agree that moths make an AMAZING snack by the way). I do hope that your human rewards you in some special way for saving her life.

Kitty Hugs, Sammy

CK, you never cease to amaze me. Now you're chasing and vanquishing mothzillas? Your TW has nothing to fear as long as you're paws of mass destruction and your teeth of terror are at the ready!!

Selina said...

WOW! I'm very impressed! I think you should get the Presidential Medal of Freedom - or a lifetime supply of gooshy fud from Fancy Feast (or whatever brand you prefer).

Ciao!
Selina

Austin Towers said...

What!! Don't she feed you enough that you have to dedded your own dinner? That's a reportable offence! I think Tw's days of freedom are numbered! Apart from that, was it soft and juicy? Yum!!!

meowmeowmans said...

All hail the heroine, Cathy Keisha! Great job, CK. Way to show that Mothra-Mothzilla-Mothsquatch who's BOSS! What the heck would TW do without you???

Ann Staub said...

Dude - you should get a medal of honor for that or something!

Katie and Glogirly said...

Whoa!!! that was a VERY close call.
Those monsters, when they crawl into a human's ear, well I hear they eat their brains. What little brains they have, that is.

; ) Katie

Caren Gittleman said...

good job CK!! I'm killin' stuff all the time around here! Love, Cody

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Yikes! Brave girl! Was it dry? I hope you got a reward of something good to drink!

The Island Cats said...

Wow, how brave you were, CK! TW owes you big time!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Mmmmm, a MOFF! What a treat! I enjoy deading the MOFFS but I do not always consume them. I hide their giant desicated bodies in some obscure corner where the Human finds them some time later and is grossed out a second time. Score!

Nice job on protecting TW, CK. I think this should mean extra treats and maybe a flying rocket session.

Anonymous said...

OM C!? CK! Are you safe? Oh yeah, and how is TW? Bwwaaahahahaha !

Clooney said...

Whoa CK, you are awesome! Neytiri would have loved to help you take Mothzilla down, she LOVES moths!

Jobi and Fisher said...

That would definitely lead me right into a sleepless night! Great job on your part, CK! Fortunately, due to my age, I will probably forget this by nightfall and will not have nightmares. Or, I will be sleepless and can catch up on everything in the office.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Hello my Queen of the Moff Killers, I hope you had rich rewards for your heroism today. Me, I had kind of a boring day clawing the furniture.

Texas, a Cat in... Austin said...

What an adventure, CK! Humans are always clueless!

Kitties Blue said...

C.K., you are truly a hero of major proportions. Even though you made a nice snack of the intruder, we sure hope you got some treats as a reward. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
