Thursday - Buddy and the shrinking Basket

     Once upon a time, way up there in the 'up there' where Ceiling Cat lurks, the senior kitty type, the one Small One calls Cuddly Chops, went to take a nap in the basket originally placed up there for the resident House Panther, MikiCato, who, at the time was, either indisposed, or maybe tucked into the bed/nest/basket that the senior kitty type originally wanted but couldn't sleep in because the House Panther one was already sleeping there.
     Like that fancy writing, Huh?  Read on, I gots more!
     Now, as I was saying, Buddy Bear hopped into the basket 'up there' and tried to settle down.  Now, we know he had done this (settled down) in that self same basket in times past, fit well, and slept well (or at least was quiet and did not bother the Beans for most of the day), but for some reason this particular day, something was just not right.  

"Dis ting done shrunked on dis side.  I gots no rooms to gets ma
head down insides to sleeps"

"an I don't gots room back chere for da rest of myselfs .....
da foots and da tail fluff jus don fits in.
Is sumptin wrong chere.  I wants to sleeps in da baskit and I
nots got da room and I not happies lak dis"

     So, our fine flufftailed ManCat hero kitty, hopped out, took a couple steps down the shelf the mysteriously shrunken basket was attached to, heading toward the 'way down' from up there when he suddenly came upon the greatest discovery of the day!   The basket was too small, but the shelf was not!
     The day was NOT a total loss after all.  
     Then there was peace, bliss, and total 'out and buzzing'.  The little ManCat's humans were allowed to fend for themselves until such time as the much needed cat nap was at a successful end.  Somehow, they managed to survive this most frustrating and depressing absence of the owner and leader of the 6 Mouskateers of Five Oaks Manor.  Buddy Bear has slept.  The basket did NOT win out this day.  All is well in the SouthWoods.

"Zzzzzzzzz ........"

     Have a good day, everyone be safe, stay warm and dry, look to the outside pets and other critters that need our help during the winter months, and come see us at one of our blogs or web sites.  You'll find the list on the right of the page ..... well, somewhere over there.  You just gotta look for it.  Buddy keeps moving it around, up and down ....
     I feel loved .....
     I am

  10. We love gigantic, medium and teeny-weeny beds. We welcome all sizes! Because depending n our mood, sometimes we like to stretch out, other times we can like to curl and snuggle up tight.

  11. Hi!
    Thanks for commenting on my Fundraising for Cat Protection Society post! Just wanted to let you know of an update with my fundraising page - I've decided to give people more incentive to donate by doing 2 giveaways. The fundraising page will be active for 6 months so at the end of the first 3 months I'm going to draw all the donors out of a hat and they will win their choice of anything from my Etsy store (there will be even more cool art and apparel in there soon too!). At the end of the 6 months I'll do it again :o)Just wanted to inform you of the update, and thanks again for visiting The Purr Diaries!!!

  12. Mieow, thanks for being furriends on FB. Please visit me in my garden when the sun is shining.

  13. It's a cat thing to be adaptable and as long as it's "up high," it's cozy and sleep worthy as you saw, Buddy Bear!

    Hope things are going well for you in the southwoods, even if the wind is gettin' to howlin' a little and old man winter is on his way. Stay warm, keep mom and dad happy and enjoy the holiday spirit, effurrybody!
