String Serenade for Daddy

Kitties!


Rupert here.

What a day Daddy had yesterday!
First, he got a fruit seed stuck 'twixt his tooth and gum last weekend.  He went to the dentist on Tuesday (the same day a Sly had his teef done, what a co-inky-dink, huh?) and got it taken care of--or so he thought.  Turns out he has to go back because it swelled all up again!  Poor Daddy.  

Then, he got a check in the mail for the car repairs from his rear-ender accident, so he decided to go to the bank and deposit it.  And sprang a flat tire, right outside of the bank!  Mommy called a tow truck and went to get him.  Turns out the tires were so old they were out of warranty and all of them need to be replaced.  So much for the insurance settlement.

Finally, while he was waiting for the tire job Mommy strong-armed wheedled nicely asked him to help her do a HUGE shop at Wally World which ended up being a two-trolley odyssey into the hellish underworld of mass retail.  However, they did remember to buy Stinky Goodness so it's all good. 
Daddy said he's going to follow my example and wash his paws hands of the whole day...

...while I play a little cello music to soothe him.


Happy Friday!

XX  Rupert  XX

pee ess:  The grass Scouty ate stayed DOWN!  We are all a little bummed. 
Except Mommy, that is.

  1. Poor Daddy. He probably needs some noms and a good ear washing. You might want to wait for an hour or so after the cello concert, though.

  8. That was a pretty crappy day for your male human, but it's what my human refers to as "First World Problems!" I bet that does not really make him feel any better. I assume Scouty keeping his grass down is a first world problem for us kitties!

  23. Yikes! Your dad had a bit too much adventure, we think. Ah, the Universe giveth the money, and the Universe taketh it away.... :-)

  27. Oh poor Daddy, that was quite a day. But as long as he did remember the stinky goodness, then the day wasn't a total loss! MOL.

    ReplyDelete
  28. It sounds like one of those days. But if those tires were that old, we feel better knowing there are new ones there now. And you got supplies too!

    Purrs,

  29. Oh, that sounds just awful. We hope he recovers soon from all of that.

  33. Sweet Rupert you are lookin' mighty fine there sweet boy! We sure are sorry to hear about all that stuff happened to your dad. Hope the next trip to the dentist takes care of the problem. You were sweet to play music to soothe him, he deserved some soothing after that day. Hugs and nose kisses

    ReplyDelete
  34. That almost sounds like a mercury in retrograde snafu. Thankfully all is well that ends well.

  35. Sorry your Daddy had such a rough day, but we bet some extra cuddles and head butts from you guys would make him feel better!...Have a fun weekend, precious friends...kisses...Calle, Halle, Sukki

  36. You can tell your dad that the Staff here had the very same thing happen last week. She's been whining about it ever since!! I should go and give daddy a big lickity kiss just after you've finished the cello solo! ;)

    Love Austin xx

  37. Aw, poor Daddy. It sure wasn't his day, was it?? We hope that cello music helps soothe his pain.

  38. Rupert, that's like our life, "when it rains it pours" both positively and negatively!

  39. Oh Geez, we have a lot of catching up to do!

  40. Always A mew sing here! ! Sorry you dads had a rough un. Give him a little back scratch ... but no claws. Meows from Spottty Dotty Begal CAT at Willow farm

  41. Wow Rupert, That's a day we would want to cancel, then go back to bed and start all over again with the hope for a better outcome. A trip to W-M would make our mom want to jump off a cliff if all that other stuff had happened beforehand. Give your dad some extra TLC.

  43. I so loved your "cello music" playing - never heard that saying before but it is so much more decorous thank "butt washing" my huMum uses!

    ReplyDelete
  44. We is sure your Daddy enjoyed the cello music the bestest!

    Mom says some days you're the windshield and some days you're the bug. We don't know what that means, but we'll eat the bug, MOL!

  47. Goodness Catness what a day. Our Dad has those days too where you spill the coffee and bump your head when you lean down to wipe it up.
    You have the right idea just stay still and wash up.
