Cold Shoulder


I'm feeling a little standoffish these days. I get this way about this same time every year. During the winter I can't get enough of Mom's lap, she's so toasty. The lap time begins to taper in the spring as things heat up here in the desert.

This last two weeks has felt like Summer already, so the days of Mom snuggles is pretty much over till Fall. The other reason I abandon the lap is because it's shed season and any snuggle time turns into a hair pulling session. Mommy's obsession with alphalpha hairs is legendary.

Oh yeah, my parents are taking off for a night for a Staycation or kitty abandonment. Who will feed me at 4:30am? Cans don't open themselves.

Good move Fin...if we were always falling all over our humans they would take us for granted...

Max said...

They're leaving you without someone to open a can??? That's just...wrong!

Well, they need to hire someone to feed you at 4:30 a.m. You can't be allowed to starve in the wee hours while they party.

You have a nice-looking back! This one is definitely going into my album.

You get fed at 4.30am????? I have trouble getting fed at 6am. Now, you must tell me the secret of this. C'mon, I'm your SIF, must share important secrets like this!

Tell them to get you a full time servant - it's only fair. Don't tell anybody we waz here - we're under house arrest!

We hope your parents have fun on their trip (but not too much!) :)

The Island Cats said...

We're the same way...weather gets warmer and we don't wanna snuggle much...

They're leaving and there's no one to open the can for you??? That's just not right....

Tuck said...

I don't blame you Fin. Sometimes the humans have to be out in their place! My humans are leaving for a little vacation this weekend too. I'm not happy about it either.

CCL Wendy said...

Fin, no wonder you turned your back on your mom -- she's leaving you alone!!! I hope she leaves you extra foods so you don't get hungry.

By the way, as much as I love your furry back side and your floofy tummy, I would like to see more of your sweet face sometime soon. I am a real Fin fan!

We were very blessed to have a cold front move through here this weekend, but I believe we'll be back in the nineties before too long. Summer is the suck! I hope you can find ways to stay cool, Fin!

The Monkeys said...

Fin, you're the queen of the cold shoulder move. It makes me want to apologize until you forgive me (but I'm a sucker for a beautiful floofy girl like you)

We don't blame you for giving the cold shoulder. We didn't like it when our Beans deserted us for two weeks. We have heard a rumour that we have worse to come later in the year. We may run away from home before then.

We've never been to the desert, Fin. It sounds like a place that Tristan might like though, because she's always cold. ~Crikey

Ugh, abandond! What is wrong wif deze beans dat dey beleeve dey can haf a good time wifout us! Dat is just so wrong.

Amy said...

Oh Fin, don't worry, I am sure your mom knows your moods by now. You are lucky it is warm - it is cool here still.

As far as your mom leaving - you could try and get her to do what my boyfriend wanted to do when I had to go out of town - he wanted to hire an au pair to help with the kitties, because he wasn't sure he could do it on his own.

Sweet Praline said...

Your mom gets up at 4:30 am to feed you?!? What am I doing wrong?

Reese =^..^= said...

Poor, Fin. Don't worry efurrything will work out ok.

Cliff and Olivia said...

The humans going away is not a good thing. Maybe we all need a cat butler?

Goldie, Shade and Banshee said...

I am the same way. Winter I am a lap pig but now I prefer a cool breeze by the window.

Hope your parents have a great trip!
