Putting My Paw Down

"I'm putting my paw down." - Mr Bumpy.
Hello out there in the Bloggosphere,

It's come to my attention that 2016 has begun.

For this year, I'm creating a new rule for Mum, and I'm going to put my paw down very firmly on this.

Listen very carefully, Mum: Do not bring any more animals home, in fact don't even look at pictures of homeless animals online.

In 2014 Mum looked at the AWLQ's website.  Then she took the other humans to the shelter and they came back with Fanta.

In 2015 Mum looked at a post on Facebook, and then she took Miss C and Mr D to a foster carer's home and came back with Percy.

Well that is it.

Do not bring any more animals back to my home. None.  Not one.

I know animals shouldn't be homeless, but they can all go to someone else's home now.  Mine's full.

No more cats, or dogs.  No horses, cattle, sheep or goats.

How about chickens? Mum likes chickens. - Fanta.

No chickens.  No camels, or hyenas, or elephants.

What about ducks? Joey loves ducks. - Fanta.

No ducks! No donkeys, or crocodiles, or lizards or worms.

We already have worms.  They live in a big container outside and get the fruit and vegetable scraps. - Fanta.

All right, but no more worms!  No more anything.

When I went to Best Friends yesterday, they had a kitten who looked just like you only smaller.  It came over to me and spoke to me through the cage.  Wouldn't you like a kitten who looked just like a mini-Bumpy? - Fanta.

No, absolutely no more cats, even if they are very handsome and look like me.

Just no more animals in my home!

I am the Supreme Feline Overlord and I will be obeyed! 

Bumpy seems a little agitated. - Percy.

I see steam coming out of his ears. - Fanta.

Clearly he's fried what little brain he had. - Percy.

Poor Bumpy. - Fanta.

In case anyone misunderstood.  There will be no new animals in my home in 2016. None.

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

Mr Bumpy,
Supreme Feline Overlord.


  1. A very strong statement when you consider that 2016 has just begun!

  2. We think she'll get the message...or at least we hope she does.

  3. You told her, Bumpy ! We hope she gets the rule ! Purrs
