The lady with the yellow hair told me she’s leaving for a few days…she’s going to BlogPaws again.  Well, lemme tell you…I’m not happy about that.  Not because I’ll miss the lady with the yellow hair…because I won’t…but because she’s having some strange lady come in to take care of us while she’s gone.  Oh, the big guy will be here, too…but he’s really busy right now working long hours. The lady with the yellow hair wants someone to check on us and make sure we’ve been fed and the litterboxes get cleaned out.  She’s worried that the big guy will forget to do it.

So not only do I have to put up with those boycats…now I have to keep my eye on some strange lady, too.  She came over the other day to meet me and you know what I did?  I hissed at her!  Yep, that’s right.  A couple of times.   I let her know right from the start how I felt about the situation.

I’ll be spending the next few days in my hidey hole.  Don’t worry…I’ll come out to eat and use the facilities…but only after that strange lady leaves.

  1. Oh Zoey how upsetting for you but maybe you’ll find she does really good scritches.

  2. Zoey, we would do the same thing. A good hiss is always good to set people straight. Hope the lady withe yellow hair has a good time.

  3. It won’t be the police lady this time? We know how you feel. You should have heard the manpeep and Aunt O comparing their crazy schedules to figure out who could cover which dinnertime for us. We are not used to having dinner late, and we object to this situation. The head peep says that she’s looking forward to seeing the lady with the yellow hair at BlogPaws. She can’t wait to cheer your bog on at the Nose-to-Nose awards!

    • No, it’s not the police lady…she wasn’t available. So it’s somebuddy new…which makes it even worse! A new stranger!

  4. the lady with the yellow hair owes you big time, that’s for sure.

  5. Oh dear, you do look so unhappy! We hate strangers too. But at least lady strangers don’t tend to be as loud as men strangers. And you will have time to plot out the proper revenge.

  6. It sounds like you took control of the situation right away!!!

  7. You’ve got this Zoey. I can see that easily!

  8. Poor Zooey… Love you!

  9. we also have a lady with yellow hair and big guy. Our lady with yellow hair is also leaving for BlogPaws. Fortunately we also have a little girl with brown hair who will feed us if the big guy forgets.

  10. Oh, Zoey, we bet you will end up good friends with that lady by the time your mom gets back.

  11. Hope the lady with the yellow hair has a great time!!!!! Will miss her!

  12. Oh boy! I sure hope your mom has fun! We can’t go, and haven’t even went for our first time yet!

  13. Poor Zoey, don’t your people know it’s all about YOU?!? How dare they do anything else but tend to your wants and needs? I’m mean, really!

  14. My mom is hoping to meet your mom at BlogPaws! I’m staying home too.

  15. I am glad you put the pet sitter in her place from the start. I am sure your Mom will bring you home all sorts of goodies.

  16. I’m so sorry, Zoey. But I just know the pet sitter will be really nice and the mom will be home before you know it…with loads of fun stuff for you and your brothers!


  18. Yep, that sure is frustrating but hopefully it will be over before you know it!

  19. If our mommy hired somebody when our dad was still at home (busy or not), he would be super offended. Since our dad is going with mom, we have our kitty caregiver Chris coming to spoil us rotten. Yippee! Hang in Zoey, darling. It is only for a couple of days.

  20. Oh, Zoey, I think the strange lady will take good care of you, you will like her, as Granny knows her catsitter cats do to…after all 😀 Extra Pawkisses to make you feel better 🙂 <3

  21. Zoey… we know exactly how you feel. The Mom is leaving us too. AND she’s taking Sophie with her. The rest of us will be left behind with dad, but we are all afraid he will forget to feed us and scoop our boxes. And he works from home too, so there’s no excuse!!!

  22. Our mommy is leaving us too but our daddy could never forget us! Mommy won’t let him! 🙂

  23. OH Zoey we know it’s hard to let your Mom go away, but we believe the new lady that is coming to give you good noms and clean your boxes will do an excellent job keeping your food bowl full and your box empty!

  24. That’s always the same ! The guy may be big but not very efficient with cats ! Poor you, eat, do your business, let the lady clean it and sleep ! Time then goes by very quickly !

  25. This sounds awful!!! I just decided that I’ll also hiss if our Mom ever gets the idea to hire a catsitter. I’m wondering though if I should do more than hissing – it obviously didn’t work out?

  26. You can teleport over to us. We’re not going anywhere! I’m sure Mommy will let us play!

  27. Poor you, I am sure the strange will be very nice to you.

  28. I am also wary of new pet sitters, but the truth is, I liked this last one. I even worked up to purring for her.

  29. Oh Zoey, I’m sorry you have to deal with the stranger! But I’m sure she is a very nice lady. I hope you’ll feel comfortable around her.

  30. Most excellent Zoe! Yous surely does knows how to mes a Cat From Hell!
    Keeps on hissing

  31. Well done Zoey!! You have to make your feelings felt!!

  32. We’re sorry the lady with the yellow hair is going away, and making things all confusing at your house, Zoey. It will be okay, you’ll see. And good job laying down the law with that other lady!

  33. It’s too bad you don’t like the human who’s helping out while your human is at BlogPaws, Zoey! At least it is only for a few days.

  34. Good for you, Zoey! We all need to stand up and let our hisses be heard!

  35. It’s bad enuf she’s leaving, but ya has to put up wif some strange lady too??

  36. We understand how you feel, Zoey ! We hope you’ll get some extra-treats when your mom comes back ! Purrs

  37. my stars zoey….dont be inconvenienced any more than the yellow haired lady has already made you; I shall send a transport jet to your house post haste and we shall jet to paris, rome, london, and any place else we feel like touring….and maybe we will be home by the time your mom returns and maybe we wont….indeed…….hugs girl from dai$y =^..*= ♥♥♥

  38. You do look rather put out and worried, Zoe. Hopefully, she won’t be gone to long. Our #1 is getting set to abandon us again and she will be gone once again for three a half weeks. Can you believe that?

  39. Oh Zoey,
    My offer stands that you should run away and come to me!!!!

  40. OMC!! What a stink eye you have there, MOL! OK. not MOL…

    You look like Minko when he is in his hidey hole, too.

  41. after all you have to put up with, there better be some really good swag in it for you

  42. Oh dear, Zoey. I completely understand and sympathize. I do not like strangers at all.

    Hang in there, sweetie! Maybe you’ll even be glad when the lady with the yellow hair returns.

  43. Let that sitter lady know who is boss. YOU.

  44. Poor Zoey, we hopes the time passed by quickly in your hidey hole. Don’t hide too well though ‘cuz the stranger might come looking for you.

    Before our sisfur Silver went to the bridge, mom bean had a stranger come in to visit us. Well, that bean looked and looked and looked for Silver but she wouldn’t come out. When mom bean came home the stranger told her one of the cats was missing….but it wasn’t true! We thought it was funny but mom bean was a little worried until Silver came to see her.
