Intruder Alert

Hello out there in the Bloggosphere,
"I was just sitting in the lounge room,
watching tv with my humans." - Mr Bumpy.

I'm sure you've heard that if a black cat crosses your path, that's bad luck.  Well it was very bad luck for the black cat who crossed my path last night.

Mum's been leaving the door open because Mr Woof needs to go out so much lately, and just locking up a bit before bed-time.

It was a little before lock-up time, and I was just watching tv with the humans and Mr Woof, when this black cat, who none of us knew, just wandered in and decided to watch tv with us.

Now I'm as laid-back as the next cat, but this was an inappropriate violation of  my family's privacy.  This wasn't a friend one of us invited in.  Not like the humans who visit because Mum or Mr 19 says "come in", or even Mr Woof's doggy friend Nelson who lives in the roof who visited once.  No, this was a cat no-one knew. No-one said "come in strange cat." He just decided to let himself in.

And he was standing right beside Mr 19.  You know Mr 19 belongs exclusively to me.  Well, I said very politely, if a bit formally, with stiff legs and an arched back. "Please leave, strange cat."

He didn't move straight away, so I let out a long loud yowl and launched myself at him.  All that attacking practice I do with Mr Woof paid off because I bowled the strange cat over and out the door in one move.

Mum followed us out to break up the fight, but the strange cat was already gone.

I did an inspection of Budgie Towers because if I'm not allowed to eat my budgies, then certainly no other cat is.

I insisted on doing a patrol of the fence line for a while, just to be sure the intruder wasn't coming back,  before coming back in to watch tv with the family again.

You don't intrude on my family's tv time.

And you don't disrespect the Supreme Feline Overlord.

Until next time we meet in the Bloggosphere,
I remain,

Mr Bumpy,
Supreme Feline Overlord,
Feline Pawty Prime Minispurrial Candidate.


  1. This is very strange. I guess you'll be extra careful in the days to come!

  2. Good job catpal ! Loupi and Zorro

  3. Whoa! I'm sure that kitty has learned his lesson!

  4. Hi Mr. Bumpy Cat! It's nice to meet you. We don't like introoders either...cats or otherwise!

  5. Hello Mr Bumpy we have not met you before, we are very impressed with your expulsion of the intruder cat. Maybe he was a cat new to the neighbourhood who doesn't yet know the rules?
