Further Investigation on the New Thing

Hello out there in the Bloggosphere,
"I thought I'd get away with investigating
Joey's fortress." - Mr Bumpy.

You might remember my post about the new thing Miss 22 and her husband brought to our house. I was trying to work out what it was.

One of my readers told me it probably had another name, not just "Grandma's Girl".  So I've been listening each time it comes here, and another thing the humans call it is "Joey".

That explains why I couldn't work out what it was.  I hadn't even thought it might be a baby kangaroo!

Er, Bumps, it's a very small human. - Mr Woof.

How would you know?

It smells like a human and it tastes like a human. - Mr Woof.

Tastes? Did you have a bite of it?

Of course not. That would be bad manners.  I gave it a little lick on the toe when I introduced myself.  It's a small, female, human.  That's called a girl.  And it's named Joey.  And she's quite happy to have her toes licked. - Mr Woof.


"Mum caught me!" - Mr Bumpy.
Well, I never would have thought of tasting it! That old dog's got skills, after all. Definitely tastes human, huh? Fancy naming a small human after a kangaroo.

I did try investigating Joey's fortress. Mum caught me in there and I was in trouble.

What's wrong we me checking out her fortress?

OK, I don't like humans going into my fortress, even though they have to when they change my litter tray. But that's my fortress.  I don't see what's wrong with me checking Joey's fortress. Cats are supposed to be able to go anywhere we want and do anything we want.  It's in the Feline Code.

Humans are supposed to let cats go anywhere we want and do anything we want.  That's in the Feline Code as well.  It's a pity my humans don't seem to read the code at all. Mum has no right to tell me I can't investigate Joey's fortress.
"I don't know what that is supposed
to teach me." - Mr Bumpy.

After my little investigation, the humans did something really strange.

The smallish humans who live in the roof came down and helped Mum and Mr 19 blow air into
these floppy things.  The floppy things got big and round.  Then they put the big round things into Joey's fortress, and said: "That will teach Bumpy."

I had a bit of a look, but I can't work out what it's supposed to teach me.

I'll have a closer investigation when there's no humans around. After all, they don't seem to like me going into Joey's fortress. So I'll do it when they're not looking. What they don't see won't hurt anyone, will it?

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




Mr Bumpy,
Bloggercat,
Supreme Feline Overlord.
