Does Anyone Have a Hacksaw Handy??

Kitties - Sassy here.  Mommie broke it to us today that she is going to be put away for 72 hours of observation on vacation.  I blame Callie.  Its all her fault.  Its always her fault.  Now the men in white coats are going to take Mommie away Mommie says she needs a vacation.    While Mommie is locked up on vacation next week we will not be posting.  Mommie is sending us to a dark, dank terrifying prison deluxe expensive pet boarding facilty.  Does anyone have a hacksaw handy?

Callie here.  It is not my fault.  I am a perfect little angel (hack, hack - okay, even I choked up saying that!).  Since we are going to be held prisoner all week, I thought I would leave my fans with a special song.  It used to be called "Folsom Prison Blues" by the late great Johnny Cash.  But my version is called "Boarding Prison Blues". 


I hear the dogs a barkin'
They’re hollering all night,
And I ain't smelled any good nip,
Since, I don't know when,
I'm stuck in Boarding Prison,
And time keeps draggin' on,
I hope it’s a bad rainin’,
On Mommie in San Antone.

Well, if they freed me from this prison,
If that Mommie would come home,
I bet I'd work up a good hairball,
Smack on her new suitcase,
Don’t like my Boarding Prison,
Until Mommie comes back,
I’ll just meow as loud as I can,
Meow my Blues away.

One time the three of us were boarded - it wasn't because the humans were away (we have a sleepover pet sitter for that), but because our old house was tented for termites. I loved it - there was a play area with an enchanted forest of cat trees, and lots of room to wander around (we got let out of our deluxe hotel rooms occasionally). But Binga HATED it and she did her best to make our stay miserable with her grouchiness and bad behavior. I hope Sassy does not do that to you, Callie!

I sure hope you get outta jail soon! Maybe we will need to get a posse together and come break you out. Hey, I sure did like your tune!

OMC! I LOVE that song. TW once saw that Johnny Cash in concert and said he was pawsome.

Dang, you're going to prison? Our mom is going on vacation next weekend. We hope she doesn't send us to prison too.

My vet boards. I love it there! All the beans that work there come and play with us! They spoil us. They talk silly with us. And then they play with the dogs. They are on another level altogether! But we are always first. I think. The dogs never blab, anyway.

It sucks having to go to kitty boarding. But your song sure is super creative. Any interest in writing a creative story? Go check out the badges we made for blogville.

She will beback in no time at all. And see you soon, cuties.

This is abuse - were you included in the choice of hotel for yourselves - of course not - just keep practicing hurling those furballs.

Do not worry... Herman's mom makes a really good nip cake. It's true! She made one for my peep's birthday a week or so ago. So, I'll ask Herman's mom to make another cake and I'll get a file or saw or something to put inside it. We'll have you our in no time. purrs.
