The Nightmare During Christmas

I could hardly believe it friends, just when I was recovering from the nightmare from before came the nightmare during. Christmas morning I heard the doorbell ring and I knew company had arrived as I'd been prepped for days before.

Dad's parents were coming as they do most years, and I was excited to see them. I remembered how much fun they all had admiring me last Christmas as I played Hot Wheels with Dad.


I heard everyone come inside and I waited the appropriate amount of time in the bedroom, to develop the right buzz over "Would Fin make an appearance," gotta keep em guessing. When I felt the timing was right, I strolled out in plain view and guess what happened?

Nothing! No one even noticed, except Mom.

I assumed they were distracted with breakfast prep, so I went back to the bedroom to make my entrance again. When they were all seated for breakfast I anxiously sat in the hall, waiting to be noticed. Ready to leap into action, and...

Nothing! Mom said "Oh look there's Finny!" and not a single person looked!

I decided to bring out the big guns. Surely no one can resist the kitty under the tree pose. Dad saw the effort and called out "Oh look Finny is under the tree!"

Nothing Again! At this point I was getting peeved and I did what any self-respecting grannycat would do. I whapped at the Christmas tree branches like there was no tomorrow!

Still Nothing! So I did the only thing left in my arsenal.

I used the litter box. Although it was noticed, no one took time to admire me or my efforts. I spent the rest of the visit on the big bed. Who needs this kind of irritation?

  5. What the fluff??? Don't they know you are a published author? I mean how could they ignore you? They should have been fawning all over you, asking for your pawtograph...eve if they are "family".

    Are you sure they weren't aliens...an alien species immune to the irresistible nature of cats?

  14. Oh noes, that is just terrible Fin. How could anyone not to mention your kind of relatives not pay attention to you. That is a crime. A big crime. All those beans need to be arrested at once.
    Fin you can come here anytime that you want. We would love to pay attention to you.

  18. Who could ignore you? Who could resist such beauty, soft fur, and personality? Come on over to our house and you'll have plenty of attention.

  19. They ignored you??? How embarrassing! Next time don't use the litterbox. The middle of the floor should get you more attention.

    ReplyDelete
  20. That's too bad! Next time, try to impress them a lot better. Cheer up!

  21. That's just Wrong, Fin. Like the litter box revenge though. Maybe I should have done that to keep my mom's family from scooping me up for hugs. I'm a tom cat. Not a doll.

  22. Oh My Dear Fin, theese was simply unacceptable that you were not the star of the day or the belle of the ball. No wonder that you had to keep upping the ante, Poor Girl! And good for you that you ended that whole "nightmare" with a snooze!

  23. How awful it must have been to be ignored like that!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Well, they must be getting old and their eyesight is going...

  25. The only thing worse than being pestered with too much attention, is getting no attention at all!

    Harumph! Imagine the nerve to ignore you, especially when you were making every effort for their benefit.

    You were right to poop in the presence!

  26. This is so wrong!! For Meow sake, you are FIN, the famous FIN! FIN the famous!

    The poop thing was totally cool! We adore you!

    Have a wonderful New Year 2011!!

    Love, Lucky & Co.

  27. Your visitors need to be sent home to be educated how to treat a cat before allowing back in the house.

  28. Oh Fin! Humans can be so into their own thing!

    I of course would never had come out! If they wanted to see me they would haves to come looking for me!

  29. How RUDE! I hope your Mom doesn't invite them next year, just to show them they need to have the proper respect for you.

    ReplyDelete
  30. That really is pathetic, Fin. We are so sorry you had to go through that period of invisibility. They really should be fined for cat avoidance, 5 toys apiece!
