Pet Pride: Siren & Mia Discuss Territory

Hi everyone! Siren here, Mia says she needs to chime in at some point but I'm ignoring that right now.

I have an issue. I am being mocked. In my own home. By Mom!

She's been winking at me and singing ...

All he wants is a place somewhere
Far away from Mia and her hair
With one enormous bed
Meow, wouldn't it be loverly
loverly
loverly


And this goes on and on. Trust me - Mom is no Julie Andrews.

This horror started when I found my way to the top of the curio ...



This week it has been further compounded by the arrival of boxes in the hall, my hall. These boxes are fantastic. My claws poke holes in the cardboard. The handles are open enough for bits of bubble wrap to peek out. Bubble Wrap! It is delicious.

Then the curio top was blocked ...



And Mom says she's unpacking the boxes. Bye Bye Wonderland ...



So in my grief I sought out Mia's crinkle blankie. I didn't even sit on it. I just leaned ...



After all, she was hogging the bed again, in another one of her coma states ...



Excuse Me! Mia here. Hogging? The bed? It is my bed. My bed. Me, Mia, Mine.

I have a question. How many spots does Siren need?




Look! The Mom person creates nooks and crannies and cozy corners all over the house. Give me a break Siren. You're like the Donald Trump of cats. You claim ownership all over the place. Granted - you have better hair but really. Get over it.

I stick to the bedroom. I rarely come out during the day - no more coma comments please - and at night all I do is walk around a bit sniffing at all the places you've been luxuriating on all day long!

I could say more but the Mom person is coming. And she's singing Siren's song. That's one thing we agree on ...

She's no Julie Andrews.

Oh, your mum is naughty! But oh so funny! And I agree - Mia has loads of lovely comfy resting spots!

I'd go easy on the Mom, Mia - you may need her help in that turf war thing you got goin' with Siren. Take it from one who's the referee around here. Suck up to her. Big time.

Sylvia K said...

I have to agree with Deborah, pay attention and suck up to the Mom, from the looks of things Siren is running the whole show!!!

Lucky for me, there are two corners to this sofa or that hog Gus would have all the good sleeping places marked as his ... as it is I am only allowed to sleep on the corner of the bed when HE is sprawled in the middle.. signed, Rosie

I don't think you two have anything to worry about. Anyone that sings like William Hung and can't make the hills come alive...well I think your safe. Now you two get along ya hear or mom might just evict you out of the DNC! Wouldnt that be a treat. :)

Cherie said...

Clearly, the girls are ganging up on you, Siren. ;)

bobbie said...

Careful Siren. I may have to turn your complaints into a toonlet strip. then you'll have to put up with your Mom's singing AND becoming a cartoon character!

They have some pretty habitats sandy

That top of the curio place looked cool! So mean of your mom to block if off!

Liberality said...

Your cats are lucky creatures indeed!

jennifer said...

I am charmed by Mia and Siren! Though you should point out to them that Julie Andrews is no Dianne :)

Linda said...

Well, at least Mia isn't yelling at Siren to "Move yer bloomin' arse!" when caught lying next to her crinkly blankie ... or is she??

whizkid said...

ha ha! some conversation!! :) loved the first photo.

Deb said...

i would be disappointed if Dianne sounded like Julie Andrews. I imagine more of a Janis Joplin or Pink type of voice. You have some wonderful sleeping choices! And I agree with Siren ~ bubble wrap is the best!

Hilary said...

The top of the curio is a fine place to roost. You just can't please those Julie Andrews wannabes.

The bankers' boxes look much more appealing than any of those cushy, sissy beds. I know how it is. Sometimes a cat's gotta be a cat. Humans don't understand.

Michael Manning said...

Dianne: I laughed out loud when I saw how you blocked off the Curio! You definitely have a great sense of humor! :D)

Nessa said...

Boy, do you guys have a tussle going on. i suggest family therapy to sort out the sleeping arrangements. I have no suggestions for the singing. :)

Dear Miss Andrew's...

applause...applause...applause!!!

Do you ANY idea how much I freakin' LOVE when you post these???

These posts would make for a great cat column in a magazine or newspaper.

Being a cat lover, I can actually HEAR them saying all these things, so it CRACKS me the hell up!

Thanks for a brilliant post, dear lady.

I'm smiling from ear to ear and saying..."Meow!"

X ya!

Raven said...

Mia, Siren... you are both awesome... and so lucky to have a Mom who sings to you, even if she doesn't sound like Julie Andrews.

I did miss seeing Hope today, but you two are so cute...

Samantha ~ Holly and Zac ~ said...

You have some very nice cosy spots there to snuggle on. :-)

Fun pix! :-)
