Getting Mom's Attention

MAX

Last night when Mom went to bed I was resting on my top shelf but I thought I should remind her that I might want to come in the bedroom later. So I walked down the hallway but the bedroom door was already closed!!! I called out just to let her know that she should open the door.

meow


Hmmm, I don't think she heard me. Maybe I should try a little louder.

MEOWMEOWMEOW


Mom, open the door. Mom? (scratchscratchscratchs on floor)

MEOWMEOWMEOW

Mom!! Can you hear me!! Maybe I should knock lightly.

MmmmROW, MMMROWR (beats on door with paws)

M-O-O-O-O-OM!!!! I know you're in there!

MMMMM ROWROWROWOROWR
(slides body along door & head butts door repeatedly)

George, Mom's in there and she won't open the door! What should I do?!

GEORGE

Have you called her? Did you knock? Try the handle.

MAX

(stretchs up & wiggles doorknob)

Mom? MOMMOMOM!!!

MMROWROWROWOWOWORORRR!!

MOMMMM!!! (thudthudTHUDDDD) (door rattles on hinges as Max gets a running start and frantically throws himself against the door)

RAWRRRRMMMMRRRRAWWRRFF!! RARRMMMFFMMMMRARRR!!

MOM!!! Are you OK!! MO-O-MMMMMM!!! OPEN THE DOOR!!!

MOM

(opens door) For heaven's sake Max, what is it?! Do you want to come in? Well, don't just sit there...come on!!

MAX

I don't want to come in right now. I just want to tell you to leave the door open in case I might want to come in later.

MOM

(sigh)

That's telling her!

Sometimes humans need things spelled out for them.

Good for you two for being persistent and getting your message across. Sometimes we humans just forget things like leaving doors open for our cats and need to be reminded.

Oh yeah... closed doors are a no-no. Pumpy and I DO NOT tolerate that. Us cats have to patrol our territory.

Hahaha! Sunny does all that too, except when he bumps on the door if he hits a certain spot it'll open for him. He always comes in.

Have a great weekend :-D

Good job on throwing yourself against the door. I'm sorry that it had to come to that, though.

My Twin, they just do not get us do they?

Really, why do dey close doors anyway? It's not like dey gots something to hide from us! Oh sure, dad whines about getting his head (and sensitive parts) stepped on, but really, if he would just leave space fur us on da bed we wouldn't need to keep making him move over.

Misty, would you like to come over and look out da window wif me? Der are weerd beans on da naybors roof and they keep throwing stuff off into a big bucket! It's fun to watch...~Speedy

Oh dear, what a commotion you had to make. I think that is why mum does not bother to close the doors on me.

 
At August 01, 2008 7:08 PM, Blogger Catzee said...

That's right. Peoples should never be allowed to shut the doors.

Haha, that was a cute conversation you had with your mom!

I think your mom needs retraining...

That's why The Big Thing has learned not ta efer close the bedroom door! MOL!

 
At August 01, 2008 9:06 PM, Blogger Max said...

Makes perfect sense to me. People just don't get it, though...

Your mom should know better. My brother and I have learned to start reaching for the door handle. We can't turn it, but we love that it freaks out mommy when she hears it jiggle.

Hahahahahahha, its good to be persistent!

I totally agree with your philosphy, Max. If only we cats had thumbs, the 1st thing we would do is make sure that every door in the world was open.

Purrs,

Hahaha that made us laugh. Our Beans always leave the bedroom door open, but then they complain when we climb over them in the middle of the night. We are only checking to make sure they are all right.

Um Max maybe your beans were doing the human mating thingy and wanted to be alone....

A guy's just gotta be a guy an' get his point across! The banging on the closet door thing is what our youngest does to wake me up to feed him breakfast. So SUBTLE!

How awful to be shut out of the bedroom. I like to sleep under the blankets.

Max I think you must be related to Ramses 'cause he wails if Mummy closes the door on him too! ;)

 
At August 04, 2008 8:08 AM, Blogger Angus Mhor said...

I KNOW! They just can't get it through their heads a cat can't stand a closed door, whether he/she wants to go through it or not!

Mom said thank you for the laugh today.

Of all the nerve she thinks you were being funny Max? I am going to has to remind her on how it is for us kittys, she has had it easy for way toooooooo long! Sheesh!!

We can't believe she would sigh because of that...she never should have closed the door in the first place! Doesn't she know anything about us cats??? Sheesh!
