Close Encounters with Vivaldi the Cat

Posted by Sharkey

Vivaldi the cat is one sly fellow. He is always doing things to get under our skin. Just the other day, I found him all sprawled out on top of a nice soft pile of our clothes. Martha keeps our dog wardrobe neatly folded in baskets in a room off the kitchen called the servery. Franny and I wanted to go outside and play and when I went to get a couple of coats, guess what I encountered?

The perfect cat napping spot, right on top of Sharkey and Francesca's wardrobe.  Nice and warm, even if it does smell like dog.

Do you think I care if I get my hair all over their cloths?

    I can't believe you backed down to that fluff ball, I'm very disappointed. I'm sure you had cat hair all over your coats. Martha - could you please provide a lint roller if you are going to allow Vivaldi to nap on their clothes!

    I'm telling you for two famous Frenchies you are not getting the respect you deserve.

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    That’s one bad hair ball you two have there. The nerve of it all; sleeping on your coats. As for me, I don’t need one of those coats because I have some hair of my own. In fact, if I’m not brushed daily, I leave hair all around just like a cat. Sometimes it’s better to back down and just let “sleeping cats” alone. Rough night for me. First one of those “child alerts” came on the TV; can’t tell those from a “storm” alert. That loud beep, beep really does get attention. That got me upset thinking that a storm was coming, and when that calmed down, the fire alarm battery was low and that set off another alarm. By then, I was as nervous as a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Vivaldi you're my kind of fluffy Gato! mommie delia came into the room where the fresh folded laundry was laying, and guess what? I was sleeping on it this morning! meeuw meeuw he he...so she told me all about Vivaldi and how very cute he is and the "talk to my paw with Sharkey photo"!...oh I laughed inside and thought, YES! mommie is such a fan of Francesca and Sharkey so I don't mind, they don't bother me here...speaking of bother, huh...grandog Shihtzu Annie is coming for Thanksgiving and she like to chase me, but I will bat her ears and let her know who is boss in this house...yummy I can't wait to eat Turkey and Ham.

  • This has to me my favorite blog entry girls! At my house, my cat Slippers loves to molest, kick, and roll all over my beagle Daisy's fleece coat! It is so funny. Even after I wash her jacket, it smells doggy (sorry girls)- but that must be kitty catnip in some other sphere! Happy Holidays - I love following your adventures on the Blog. How about some "guest" postings from some of the other animals on the farm as a special Christmas treat - after all, they say all animals can talk on Christmas Eve.

  • Hello Ladies,
    Well that Vivaldi sure has some nerve. First, he throws the election and now not allowing you to get your coats. And I am sure when you finally were able to get them later in the day they were covered in yucko cat hair. You ladies were nice letting him just be--his day will come. After all, he doesn't get the celebrity statis you girls do and get to go to the office and on outings with Mom. Have a grea day.
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • Oh c'mon, girls...you're being weenies! Need I mention that there are TWO of you and ONE of Vivaldi, and he's a member of "species inferiore", or in other words, a CAT? C'mon! Give me a break! Send that cat flying out of your basket and the servery! Now!

  • well, sharkey, as you know, vivaldi is Cat while you are dog. nothing personal--that's just how it Is. greetings from xavier, jasmine, rubimami, baby-jade, & zim.

  • Hi Sweeties,
    I think Vivaldi is actually trying to let you know he likes you, including your dog smell but he doesn't want to get all mushy about it so he lays on your clothes instead. Saying he's king of the servery was just a big cover-up. You know how some guys can get! You were nice little ladies to him just like I might expect but he better stay alert, eh? Have a nice day my little queens!

  • Hi Gals,
    Chows as you know are not cat lovers but your Vivaldi is quite beautiful and shows a pretty mean cat paw!!!!

    I don't know if I would want to mess with her but no DOG wants a cat in his/her territory no way!

    You two gals need to guard your turf big time!

    Happy Thanksgiving kids.

  • ...KING indeed! (Oh, the humanity!) HisFluffinessVivaldi, I'm sure, has earned this highly revered status, due to his maturity, nobleness, and wisdom.

    Girls, it IS best to let Vivaldi 'be'...those mighty front paws and forearms are to be FEARED - they can be lethal weapons sometimes for a kc... Besides, allow him to be king...you two are the little queens, afterall, of mommieMartha's kingdom! Mandy has instructed me to tell you to 'cut HisFwuffiness some swack'. She remembers similar scenarios back when her big brother Edgar was alive. He was king, too, but she ruled anyway.

    She still does!

  • Two words come to mind....

    Lint Roller! :)

    It does a body good!!

    Love your daily blogs...keep them coming.

    A pig in a blanket?
    Or a cat on a hot tin roof.
    A frog awooing - where's the proof?
    A hippo in the bath tub
    An angry little pug.
    An inch worm doing push ups
    Two angry little pups.
    Vivaldi sharing his hair
    On the wardrobe of the puggy pair.
    Talk to the paw, says Vivaldi
    I am KING,I said, KING of the servery.

    A tasket a tiskit
    Would you riskit, for a biskit?

  • Hi Girl Friends, What cute photos of the two of you and Vivaldi. I absolutely love all 3 of you and sure would love to play and hang out with you. I think I could show you two girls how to get along better with all of your cats since I spent the 1st 11 months of my life with only a cat as a friend. I dearly love them and truly enjoy our part-time cat, Bogie. He was gone for 9 days and I was so glad to see him when he came over today. Have fun. Love, Dudley Do Right xoxoxo
