Finny's Day Off - Screenplay

Fade In

Mom is seen gathering her things by the back door as Fin watches from the floor. This is the regular morning routine, and both seem resigned to it.

Mom: You be a good kitty sweetie, try not to nap too long. (Snickering) You have it rough my girl.

Mom reaches down and gives Fin a neck scritch. Mom heads out the door. Finny appears to curl in for a nap, as Mom gives one last look.

Cut to a shot of the kitchen floor. Cue music "Old Time Rock and Roll." We hear the opening strains as Finny skids into the frame as in Risky Business. Montage continues as Finny is seen racing through the house, and whapping toys to the music.

Cut to Fin on the phone mewing with catfriends. Cut to Fin mewing through the back door to Mittens the yard cat. Cut to Fin sitting on the couch with her paw on the remote watching Animal Planet while popping cat treats.Cut to Fin shopping on Ebay and reading blogs.

Cue Sound effect of the Garage Door Opening. Fin races to the back door and recreates the pose she was in when Mom left. She sees she has left on the computer and runs to the office, jumping onto the desk. She flips the power switch as we hear Mom starting to turn the door handle. Fin leaps back onto the floor and runs back to her spot. She manages to lay back down before Mom enters.

Mom (lovingly): Did you get your rest today granny?

Mom reaches down and picks up Fin for snuggles.

In Voice Over: "Yep, I've said it before, and I'll say it again... life moves pretty fast. You don't stop and look around once in awhile and you could miss it. - Ferris Bueller"

Fin turns to camera and winks.

MoMo said...

Oh Finny, you captured it all!! Now we just need to make a short film out of this.....it will be superb!

The Kitty Krew said...

MOL - before we got to the end, when we read about running back to turn the computer off and then get back to the nap spot, we were thinking Ferris, and then there he was in the voice over! Great kitties think alike.

We'd better not let The Mommy read this, we can't let her know what our days are like...

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew

Kea said...

LOL! I can just see this happening, too. Hmm, maybe I need web cameras installed all around our house, to see what the Fuzzy Tales crew *really* gets up to when I'm at the office!

Eric and Flynn said...

That was great Fin. They never suspect a thing do they.

Cats in Trees said...

They see us sleeping when they come home and streching endlessly before getting up and think we have slept all day. They haven't got a clue.

Amy and The House of Cats said...

That was a great one Fin!!

Grrreta said...

Love it! Moms are pretty clueless about our secret lives while they are at their day hunting places. We could absolutely picture you skidding into the frame as in Risky Business.(Ambrose does that all the time.)

Derby, Ducky said...

Excellent.

The Crew said...

That was great, Fin!! And they think we sleep all day (LOL) These humans have no idea what we do when they're gone.

The Furry Bambinos said...

That was great, Fin! Inquiring kittehs want to know, did you wear briefs for the Risky Business scene? ;-) We will try to get a post up for the Acatemy Awards later this week or on the weekend. Thanks for hosting it!

We want to thank you for attending Cookie and Caramel's Coming-Out Party! We had fun, and hope you did too!

Padre, Panda Bear, Meerkat, Cookie, and Caramel

The Bumpass Hounds said...

Hey Fin,
We saw that movie and it was GReat. Did you have white skivies on when you slid into the foyer like Tom Cruise.

Alasandra said...

Well you know that old saw about the cats will play when the beans are away. Or something like that. I mean do beans really think we sleep all the time? ~AFSS

PS: We are glad you liked the Clean + Green as much as we did. Mommy had to use the carpet stuff yesterday on some kitty throw up.
