the break-in

Seville pawed at the door. Grabbing the doorknob between both front paws, he tried to twist it open but to no avail.  "Awww... MOUSES!  Peep has gone and locked my office door."  He sat back on his haunches, debating what to do next.

"Peep #1 is out in the garden," Seville's brother, Rushton, informed him. "Why don't you just go ask her to open up the door?"

"Nah, that won't work," muttered Seville.  "I'm thinking there's some reason I'm not supposed to be in the office by myself."

"Probably has something to do with your occasional spraying issues," suggested Rushy.

Seville glared at Rushton.  "You pee on a peep ONE time and ya never hear the end of it."

"Only the once?" questioned Rushton.  "I'm pretty sure it was at least twice."

"Nope, just the once.  Well just the once for Peep #1.  I might have peed on Peep #2 too but I'm pretty sure I only peed once per peep.  These things happen.  They can't be helped.  But my point is, peeps never let these things go.  If Nissy were here, he would say MOUSES!"

"Yup," Rushton nodded in agreement, "Nissy would say MOUSES! to that, for sure."

The two cats sat in silence, staring at the locked office door.

Several minutes passed before Rushton finally spoke up.  "Well what are you going to do?  Today's Sunday and you have a blog post to write."

"I know...  I know..." muttered Seville.  "Wait, I do know!  I'll pick the lock.  Should be easy enough. Peeps do it on television all the time.  I need a hairpin or something, I think.  Would you happen to have a hairpin on paw, Rushy?"

Rushton rolled his eyes.  "I may be a long-haired kitty but I most definitely do not use hairpins."

"No matter.  I see something else I can use."  Reaching over to his brother, Seville plucked a long, white whisker. "This will work nicely," he smiled.

"Ouch!" Rushton cried.  "For mousin' out loud...  That hurt!  I'm getting out of here before you pull out any more of my whiskers.  You had better watch out or I'll go tell the peep what you're doing."

"Tell if you like, Rushy, but having given me that whisker makes you an accomplice.  You had better keep that in mind."

"I didn't give you anything.  You STOLE that...  Awww...  MOUSES!" and with that, Rushton headed into the kitchen to look for a snack.

Seville beamed when he heard the locking mechanism on the office door make a welcoming click. The doorknob turned easily now and he pushed open the door.  "Now to get to work," and he trotted over to the desk.  Once turned on, the computer hummed to life.

"Whatcha doing?" Mason asked after running into the office and plunking her tail down next to Seville.  "Rushy said you were starting work on your blog post."

Seville glanced over at his sister, Mason.  Noticing that she appeared to be out of breath he asked, "Better question is, what were you doing?  You're panting."

"I was outside in the garden, supervising Peep #1.  She's digging up primroses for the animal shelter plant sale," answered Mason.

"The peep is selling off the primroses?  Nissy's primroses?  MOUSES!"

"Just the extras.  I was very careful to allow her to dig up only the extras.  The ones we don't need."  Mason began to wash a paw but between licks, added, "Besides, the sale is still two weeks away.  If she digs up any of the wrong ones, we can just plant them back in the garden when she's not looking."

Seville nodded in agreement.  "Yeah, we've done that before.  Drives the peep crazy."

"I think you mean crazier," giggled Mason, emphasising the 'er' at the end of the word.  She began to work on washing her other front paw before asking, "What are you going to blog about?"

"Not sure yet.  Hmmm....  Password!  Blogger wants a password?  MOUSES!"

"Nissy was very pro passwords," Mason informed Seville.  "Surely you knew that."

"Someone looking for a password?" Anderson asked, strutting into the office, flipping his floofy tail this way and that.  "Nissy lock you out of the blog?"

"Looking that way."  Seville typed in MOUSES! only to find that it wasn't correct.  "MOUSES!"

"Try nip," suggested Anderson.

"Or niphead," offered Mason.

"How about cheesynippizza?" offered Andy.

Seville typed in FursibsDriveYouCrazy but alas, that didn't work either.

"Why not just go and ask Peep #1?" suggested Mason.  "I'm pretty sure she knows all the passwords Nissy used."

"No....  She doesn't know I'm here in the office," explained Seville, rubbing his temple with a paw.

"Oh yeah," nodded Mason.  "It's because of your spraying issues, isn't it?"

Seville rolled his eyes to the sky.  "I've said it before and I'll say it again.  You pee on a peep once...."

"Two peeps, once each," Mason quickly added.

"...and you never hear the end of it.  Peeps just never let these things go."

"Unlike Seville," Anderson whispered in Mason's ear, "who thinks nothing of letting go when peeing on peeps."

"MOUSES!" cried Seville.

Feeling a presence standing behind them, all three cats turned slowly to find Peep #1 standing there, hands on hips and looking rather displeased.  They all spun their heads back to face the computer screen in unison, donning the most innocent-looking expressions possible.

"My little blogmeister," said the peep.  "Nissy's Blogger password was my little blogmeister, no spaces."

Seville typed in the suggested password and the blog opened at last.  "I'm in!  Thanks Peepers.  You're a peep.  And I mean that only in the most nicest of ways."

"I know you do," said Peep #1, giving Seville a kiss on the back of his head.  "Just don't spray anything in here, okay?  No spraying allowed."

"I only..." began Seville before stopping himself short.

Sometimes it was better to just let things go, he thought to himself.  Arguing with the peep about the difference between peeing once on each of two peeps and peeing on one peep, twice, could wait for another day.  Maybe he could blog about it sometime. Yup, definitely a good blog post idea but not for today.  Today he would blog about....



  1. MOL, I wuz shocked da password wuzn't NIP.

  2. Wow that's quick thinking to use a whisker as a pick....did you learn that on one of your adventures?

  3. Oh Sivvers!! It is so good to hear from you! Your very first blog post! I'm so glad you sorted the password problem!! That could have been monumental!

    Now about the spraying .......

  5. Insure am glad the password was had Seville, ya had me worried for a minute. I agree with the peep pee thing.

  7. Whew! That was a close one. Glad you didn't get in trouble.

  8. Wonderful!.. Sivvy... you've done an outstanding job. Nissy must be so proud of you. Grammy was laughing, we came running to see what was happening and she read it to us. Now we all have sore sides from giggling.

  9. Awesome job, Sivvers. We love that Peep #1 realizes the importance of the task at paw. :)

  10. I bet the password gods told Nissy that nip was too short, so he had to come up with something else. Glad you got in!

  11. This was great Seville! Made me laugh, especially about the peeing! Pee once and no one will ever let you forget! MOUSES!

  12. Well done, Seville ! Now if only your peeps could forget that little pee-incident... Purrs

  21. Great first post Sivvers! I have only peed once indoors. I'd been for a walk in the fields and forgot to pee before I came indoors. I got in my litter box but I forgot I wasn't still in the fields and started to pee standing up, Mouses! Mum didn't tell me off, she just gently pushed my butt down and I never forgot again.

  22. Seville you are very smart to use Rushton's whisker to pick the lock on the office! You will rock the blog, we have complete confidence in you!

  23. Wonderful post Seville, Nissy is certainly looking down on you and approving completely of your excellent work. MOUSES! Big high 5 paws all round pal. Now, this pee eeep pee eeep peeeeee oh no it be PEEGATE !!! BIG HUGS PAL XXX MOUSES!!

    Nissy would be proud :)
    Purrs Georgia and Julie,
    Treasure and JJ

  27. MOSUES...We suspected that it would take more than just Seville to fill Nissy's large paws. We are pleased to meet so many of his fursibs today and see photos. We do look forward to hearing their thoughts. We know that Nissy will be guiding Sivvers paws over the keyboard and probably sending him ideas while he naps. We are so pleased that you have decided to carry on as coming here will remind us of a great cat and friend. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  28. Spraying sounds like such a nice feature. I bet peeps pay extra to get that feature! Live it up!

  29. Peeing on your peeps is a good sign, isn't it, Seville, you have to make them a kind of your doggies do ;) I think Nissy is helping you with a smile from above to continue his blog and you just did a fantastic job on that..MOUSES! Nipkisses for a wonderful day :) <3

  30. Mouses! Seville I know Nissy is super proud of you - great job on your first blog with Nissy "snoopervising" from the Bridge! I like the idea of your Peep donating some of Nissy's primroses to an animal shelter plant sale - I just KNOW Nissy would totally approve.

    Hugs, Sammy
