Sometimes, you just gotta claw

I’ve been good, very good. I’ve been cute, fluffy, and very understanding that Sammy needs more attention and better food, and more attention, and really good food, and a nice tasty chewy, and more attention, but I couldn’t stand it any longer last night.

I admit, I had a bit of a temper tantrum. We had been ignored long enough and I wanted attention!

The humans came home from work and it was all about Sammy. Sammy, Sammy, Sammy! They gave him really good tasty food, and the human woman was hand feeding him all of the yummy treats that we don’t get anymore, all of this in front of us! At lunch I sat there and watched the human woman share her macaroni and cheese with him!

That’s just too much! I have to draw the line somewhere!

So... I clawed them both. Oh yeah, they deserved it. They tried to sit in their computer room and ignore us even more, but we wouldn’t let them. Even the suck up mutatoe was mad at being ignored and yapped and yapped and yapped while I clawed and clawed. I stomped and woo’d, I clawed, I stomped, I demanded things, and they FINALLY paid us some attention. Oh sure, they tried throwing us outside, but we would go out there, turn around and claw at the door to be let in. We will NOT be thrown out like that we demanded our well deserved attention.

Whatever it was, it must have worked, because the human woman left Sammy in his crate most of the day and spent a lot of time with us. She even took a nap with us, and gave me a large part of the bed. I thought that was very nice of her, but she’s got a lot of sucking up to do before I’m going to forgive her.

Just when I thought we had turned her around and made her realize that we aren’t just here to be cute and fluffy... down she went to spend time with Sam. Sigh. I even heard that they plan on taking Sam out on a car trip, and he’s going to get to swim. I swear, there better be some big payback when he gets better.


  1. "Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!"
    Hang in there, Meeshka! Hope Sam's recovery is going well!
    Tail wags,

  2. You should try biting too. A triple attack: yapping, clawing, AND biting. It works for me!


  3. Surely he will be well soon & all this can be put behind you. While we feel bad for Sammy. we're starting to feel worse for the rest of you, this almost borders on neglect! Keep your fluffiness up Meeshka, it has to get better soon!
