My sudden avoidance of the great room as been resolved.
You see it all started innocently enough, Mom headed out on Saturday to return a rejected purse, and while she strolled by the housewares department she spotted the ceramic pot she had been dying to try at 60% off. Her Cheapness was unable to resist such a bargain. She wrestled it off the pot rack like a champion, and fortified her strength with a new pan to match.
The new purchase started a chain of unfortunate events at Casa De Housecat. She put them on the dining table so she and Dad could admire her kill. I gave them a few sniffs and settled in for a nap.
Dad decided to make room for the new pot and pan, starting a clang-fest like nothing I've ever heard before. I HATE it when Dad makes his way into the kitchen by the Evil Cabinet where the pots live. He wrestles those pots to within an inch of their lives. Clang, Bang, Boom. I run for the hills as soon as he gets close to the cabinet, on a good day.
His reorganization of the Evil Cabinet led to other cabinets and it scared me into hiding. Now that things have calmed down I able to warily enter the great room again.
So it wasn't a ghost after all, just some bad pot... and a pan.
Hi Friends leaving a comment!ReplyDelete
Mom is feeling sickly so she hasn't been around much and may not be till this weekend.
I'm administering snuggle therapy and she'll be fine shortly.
Hey, Fin! We hope your mom doesn't get any pots and pans with the CSN Stores gift certificate you won!! We hope she's feeling better soon.ReplyDelete
Fin, we hope your mom feels better very soon. We are very glad that the mystery ghost was a pot and pan and all is well now with you. Lots of love, Holly and momReplyDelete
Make sure she leaves the scary pots and pans alone AND especially the nasty vacuum cleaner!ReplyDelete
It is scientifically known that the cat purr is a healing sound. I'm sure you are very good at it.

Bad pot? Oh Fin, life is too short for that. We are glad it wasn't monsters, though...those things can be pernicious! the one in the laundry room has been there for YEARS.ReplyDelete
Glad you told everyone what was up and warned us all of evil pans. The evil boy who lives with us also makes a racket when he's looking for his pizza pan. I forgive him though when he sneaks me pieces from the pizza.ReplyDelete
Hope your mom gets to feeling better, Fin.
We're glad the mystery has been solved! Perhaps your dad should go out and buy you some new toys and a bunch of treats to make up for his bad behavior.ReplyDelete
I don't blame you for not wanting to be near that clamor! One of my human's worst infractions is to put away the dishes while I am trying to eat dinner - all that clattering hurts my ears!ReplyDelete
P.S. Did your human ever figure out the email situation? Should mine try sending the files to another email? Let her know!
Well of course that makes sense! We kitties do not like loud noises.ReplyDelete
We hate LOUD kitchen noises too, and LOUD cleaner noises, and LOUD TV, and the phone ringing LOUDLY ... we could meow on and on ...ReplyDelete
Hope your mom is better soon, Fin. Perhaps she too succumbed to the bad pot!ReplyDelete
Glad mystery is solved, though. Here at Chez Austin, the riddle of the loud crackle in the kitchen still has our hero cowering behind the curtain??
Hope you're better mamy secalhar also afraid of what Dad did barrulho in the kitchen "ghost!" Ouch that fear! Aindabem that you have seen after the pot was mamyReplyDelete
Concats on your win over at The Island Cats. Hope your mom feels better soon.ReplyDelete
I certain hope those clanging monsters leave you alone now!!!ReplyDelete
We are glad the mystery is solved. We hate loud noises too.ReplyDelete
We hope your mum is soon feeling better.
Our dad sounds like he is auditioning for the Boom Crash Opera when he's in the kitchen, so we definately feel your pain!ReplyDelete
The mom makes an awful racket too, wrestling with pots and pans, so we understand. We're glad things are back to normal and hope your mom feels better soon!ReplyDelete
Finny, make sure you give your mom a purr from us, ok?ReplyDelete
The pot cabinet IS scary! I don't like it either!ReplyDelete
Purrs to your mom. And we are glad the mystery is solved...we would have run too!ReplyDelete
I laughed :DReplyDelete
Reminds me of Wendell. One time he got his tail tangled in a bootlace and went tearing through the house with it 'hot on his heels', terrified!!
From then on if we opened the boot closet OR if he saw me wearing them, he made a made dash for cover.
Who says cats don't recognize objects?
At least the mystery is solved. We would have gone into hiding too if pots and pans were dancing around. Glad that is over. Sorry Mom is sick.We know she will be feeling better with you snuggling her. Take care.ReplyDelete
Well, we're glad it was a simple solution.ReplyDelete
Best wishes to Mommy, but I can't suggest retail therapy or there may be more unwanted changy things!!ReplyDelete
Such an affront to your senses, Fin! How would they like clanging and banging to go on while they rested or ate?!ReplyDelete
We all run and hide when that loud machine that sucks up the dirt and our loose hair comes out. Mom skairt us today with it.ReplyDelete
OMC that was funny! My Mom does the same darned clanging here too!ReplyDelete
HaHaMeow...Some bad Pot? Just don't inhale...ReplyDelete
But, really, we are glad that mystery is solved
