Cat hiding

Ever since the lady with the yellow hair got home from her trip to that conference, I’ve been a little more stand-offish.

After all, she did leave me alone for 3 WHOLE DAYS…and had the audacity to have some strange human come in and give me my food and clean my litter box. I didn’t like that one bit! She knows how much I don’t like strange humans. I don’t even like her sometimes.

Now she thinks she can bribe me with a treat. Like that’s gonna make everything all better. Well…you know what she can do with that treat, don’tcha?

Wait a minute. *sniff sniff sniff* Is that my favorite freeze dried chicken treat? Maybe I oughta rethink this.

Okay lady…I’ll take your bribe. Now if you leave the whole bag, we’ll talk about me coming out from under here.

  1. Treats can solve any problem.

  2. I think everybuddy has their price. Your price looks tasty!

  3. Sure looks like a great treat. Maybe you will get more if you come out. You all have a great weekend.

  4. I like to ignore my mom for a while if she leaves town. Signed, Lucy

  5. poor Zoey – it’s a tough life

  6. Yeah, I think the whole bag will help you forgive her.

  7. She has to pay for leaving you for 3 days. When you figure she’s suffered enough you’ll come out and join her and not a minute before.

    Have a purrfect day and weekend. My best to your mom. ♥

  8. Put a firm PAW down Zoey she needs to be taught a lesson she won’t forget.

  9. Treats are a good start, Zoey. Now she has to make the rest of it up, beginning with three days of special Zoey-only food!

  10. New humans can be tough but sometimes they grow on you. Our boys love our cat-sitter now.

    • The problem we have is the pet sitting company we use seems to have different people come in. We’ve had a really hard time finding a good pet sitter in our area.

  11. LOL the lady with yellow hair got you a really good bribe 🙂 And you should get a whole bag. You deserve it, Zoey!

  12. Zoey, don’t buckle under! Make her PAY for her indiscretions!

  13. We think you should hold out for a whole bag of treats and all the kitty swag she brought home from the CWA Conference. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

  14. You must have standards.

  15. Oh I know just how you feel and they always try to bribe you with something after they’ve been bad.

  16. Freeze-dried chicken goes a long way when it comes to forgiveness, doesn’t it, Zoey?

  17. treats help one get over being mad! Hugs and kisses for the kitty!

  18. Poor Zoey ! The whole bag could be a great help ! Purrs

  19. Treats can make a big difference!

  20. Amen and AMEN! The Female Human left us for that stupid conference and gave not a thought to the suffering we were left to endure. Meals were not served on schedule, snacks were not regularly distributed and the petting was sorely lacking. Every one of the Tribe of Five decided to shun her for a few days. I wouldn’t even come upstairs when she came home from work every night for 4 days. That’ll teach her.
    Purrs & Head Bonks,

  21. Zoey I am a bit of a girl who does not like new people either. I do give in a bit for treats so atta girl

  24. Oh Honey, come out. Please.

  25. I am sorry you were abandoned for 3 whole days- she must be punished.

  26. Just because you eat it doesn’t mean you have to give up your principles!

  27. Simon and Seal don’t like strangers either sweet Zoey but treats always help!

  28. Simon and Seal don’t like strangers either sweet Zoey, but treats do seem to help!

  29. We all have our breaking point and treats usually thaw our cold shoulders too!

  30. I’m with you, Zoey! She deserves to be ignored. I won’t even let TW go away to those conferences. I never like the swag bag stuff anyway. They don’t give out foam rockets.

  31. I think treats will do it every time! You sure put up a good fight, though, dear Zoey.

  32. Poor Zoey! Your mom is very smart bribing you with your favorite treat. Hope you come out soon. Have a great holiday weekend!

  33. Zoey don’t be so hard on the lady with the yellow hair……she gave you your favorite treat AND she did come back from being away. I bet she missed you as much as you missed her!

    Hugs, Teddy

  34. Treats! Yes, that’s the universal negotiation tool, Zoey!

  35. Zoey, they always know our weaknesses and use them to their advantage. Hey, if you can get treats out of it, why not? I don’t like when the lady goes away either.

  36. Zoey, we hope you and mom are back cuddling again. Three whole days is a lot, but treats will always make it better. Thanks for sharing. Have a wonderful rest of your weekend.

  37. Zoey, I feel that way about my Mom sometime too! They do need TLC.

  38. I think that’s a good offer, Zoey…first the whole bag and then…MOL 😀 Extra Pawkisses and glad you’re mom is back

  39. You don’t give in easily, do you, Miss Zoey?
