TW Tried to Kill Me

TW Tried to Kill Me

Wednesday night started as many nights do with TW watching the Yankees lose and doing crossword puzzles. Finally around 1 a.m. it came time to play with The Cat. In the blink of an an eye, the "game" turned violent and I found myself fighting for my life. A "noose" around my neck. I couldn't breathe. I staggered around a little and then …

TW: Stop right there. I think CK owes it to me to let me tell you what happened the other night. I owe you nothing of the sort! I know how CK likes to play. I can trust her with most things without fear that she'll eat them because she'd rather bite Pop and myself. That said, she loves chasing things: the foam rockets, rattle balls, her new Cat Crazies, and coated hair ties.

CK: I don't owe you squat! You're guilty Woman! We were playing nicely and then this happened and … and it was no accident. You did it deliberately on purpose!!

TW: You know I couldn't hit the side of a barn with a bazooka so how could I do this deliberately? I couldn't do it if I tried.

Anyway, if CK will let me continue. She chased the large hair tie a few times. I decided to chuck one just over her head from about two feet away so she could reach up and grab it. I shot it short and got a ringer right over her head.

At first I wasn't sure what happened. She took off toward her Pop's room at lightning speed. Then she ran back into the living room. It was then I realized she was wearing the hair tie like a long necklace or a lei, since it was very loose. For some reason known only to her, she can't stand anything around her neck. It could be from a trauma while she was still a feral street cat; it could be from the time right after we adopted her when she got her head caught in a shopping bag.

Anyway, now she was running faster than I've ever seen her run; back and forth and than around the couch.

CK: I was running for my life.

TW: I couldn't get near her so I had to wake her Pop. I was in tears. I was afraid she'd get caught on something and break her neck or really hurt herself.

CK: No, you were in tears cos you were laughing so hard at the sight of little CK struggling to breathe.

TW: Please don't believe her. I'd never do anything to hurt her. I love her to the moon and back. Finally after I woke her Pop, she must have tired herself out and jumped on his bed exhausted. He went to pet her and felt the coated band and calmly took it off her.

She came in to sleep a while later, still breathing kind of heavy from her ordeal. I kept a close watch on her until she calmed down and her breathing returned to normal, which didn't take too long once she realized she was safe.

I know she wanted a funny, "poor CK; she almost died" post but her life was never in any danger. It was an accident that will never happen again.

CK: You best sign that in blood, Woman. Pop saved my life. And then you had the nerve to make me pose with the noose for this post! So there you have it. TW tried to kill me and Pop saved me!

  1. Aw, poor babies! Boaf of you! The Human did something like that once with a wand toy that got wrapped around my neck and I took off like a crazy thing and dove UTB and refused to come out. She thought maybe I was dead or dying under there so she ended up tipping up the mattress and the box springs and of course by the time she was finished with all that I was long gone and the offending toy was there UTB all by itself. She was so relieved she didn't even complain too much about the struggle to put that queen-sized bed back together, ha ha meow.

  2. Humans! You have to be so careful around them. Not because they are mean - most of them are nice - but because they just have no idea what they are doing half the time! I'm sure it was all an accident... not that that made it any less scary at the time. But who knew your human would land a ringer? It was a one-in-a-million!

  5. Humans just don't think of the bazillion ways we can get ourselves into trouble with common household objects, do they, CK? No one would have thought your human had good enough aim to get that over your head, so it must have been an accident. She isn't a cowboy with a lasso!

  8. Awww, how scary for everyone!! CK, we know TW loves you to pieces and would never do anything to try to harm you. We are sure it was an accident. Still, it doesn't hurt to make her feel guilty to get a few extra treats or bites in, MOL.

  15. Oh, CK, I'm sorry this happened to you! But, believe it or not, I'm pretty sure TW would never do anything to hurt you. As scary as things like this seem in the moment, I bet it was truly a harmless incident that will never happen again. No worries, though, because all is well now! And perhaps you got some extra treats out of the ordeal, CK...?

  16. You poor baby!!! I'm so thankful you survived the attempted murder attempt. Did you file a police report?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Yikes, CK! That musta been such a scary experience. We hope TW made it up to you by giving you lots of treats...though we're sure she didn't mean to lasso you.

  18. You should get a lawyer! That is so wrong!

  19. Poor CK, that is an awful experience- good thing your Pop was there to rescue you. I think you need to seek revenge.

  20. C.K., that was a great tall tale, and we are so happy you lived (snicker) to tell it. Our mom told us that TW would never purposely do anything to harm you. Your lucky you don't live with us. We all wear collars 24/7. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  21. We are so glad you are okay, CK! We know for a fact that TW loves you, so we're certain this was an accident.

  22. Sounds scary, CK. But I believe TW and think it was likely an accident. Is she any good at horseshoes? That might hint at accident or not...

  23. I came back to say your pink tongue is driving me WILD!

  24. Oh my......sounds like it was a scary thing for you CK so whatever caused it or however it happened, I'm sorry you were spooked by the hair tie incident! Thank heavens all is well - sounds like you've forgiven TW too.

    Hugs, Sammy

  25. How scary CK! Mom does odd things with me too like the ear plug episode. What's wrong with these moms of ours?

  27. I'm reading this kind-of late, but wow, what an ordeal. You might want to take that "toy" out of the rotation for a while.
