Boing...  Boing...  BOING...

Hmmm...  That's not quite right.  But if I tinker with this here...  And I tinker a little with that there...


Well the springs are boingin'.  But they're only boingin' up and down.  So far, I'm not havin' any luck in getting 'em to boing forward, at all.  MOUSES!

Oh hello there, my friends.  You happened to catch me rippin' apart....


You happened to catch me diggin' into...


On the other paw, you happened to catch me doin' nothin' at all.  Nope, there's nothin' of interest here.  MOUSES!

Okay, so I was doin' a little tinkerin' with the springs from the family room chesterfield.  You did catch me doin' that.

But I ask you, what's a little tinkerin' among friends?

Oh-oh.  Excuse me.

What's that, Peepers?

Uh, nothin'...

No Peepers!  There's no need for you to come into the family room.  I'm just talkin' to myself, is all. Just talkin' to myself, lullin' myself to sleep.

Yeah, that's it.

Yes Peepers, I'm just gettin' ready to have a little nap here.  Nothin' to worry your pretty little head over.  I'll call you if I need you.  Okay?  And until I do - call you, I mean - don't bother coming into the family room.  There's no need for you to come into the family room at all.

I said, DON'T COME INTO THE FAMILY ROOM!  At least not yet.

Peepers, don't you know it's rude to interrupt cats when they're talkin'?  Even when they're talkin' to themselves?  MOUSES!

Whew!  That was a close one, for sure.  For a minute there, I thought the peep was gonna come in here and find this mess I made with the family room chesterfield.

But I ask you, what's a little mess among friends?

And who knew chesterfields contained THIS MUCH stuffin'?  I know I didn't.  Did you? MOUSES!

No, it wasn't the stuffin' I was after.  I was lookin' for the springs.  I found 'em, too

Pardon me?  Why was I after the chesterfield springs, you ask?


Well it's that time of year, you see.  That time of year when the clocks are moved forward on account of Daylight Savings Time.  And you know what they say, right?  They say, time springs forward.  Springs forward.  Springs forward.  You're seein' the pattern here?  The pattern with those springs?

But the problem with all this springy stuff is, after losin' an hour of sleep last night, I'm not feelin' very springy.  Nope, I'm not feelin' springy at all.

So I got to thinkin', what if I could find me some actual springs, and use 'em to add a little spring to my step.  You know, to make me all springy, even after that lost hour of sleep.

But the other problem is, these here springs - the springs I happened to find in this here chesterfield - appear to be defective.  Yup, they appear to be defective, for sure.  Try as I might, I can only get 'em to work up and down.  So far, there has been no forward springy movement, at all.

And by the way, when usin' springs on the bottoms of your paws, to add a spring to your step, do not use 'em in areas with low-hangin' ceilings.

Just sayin'...

But I will add this:  THANK GOODNESS for that pile of chesterfield stuffin'.  Who knew it could make for such a comfy landing.

Again, just sayin'...

Anyway, I think what I need are some non-defective springs, 'cause these ones that used to be inside the family room chesterfield are apparently not up to spec.


Anyone know if chairs have springs, too?

Just askin'...



  1. MOL! This is a good Springy Selfie Sunday story!
    Purrs, Brenda

  2. Now Seville, you might want to reconsider surveying chairs! Consult Mason...there's a worthy source I am sure!

    1. Oohhh.... Mason DOES know her chairs, for sure. MOUSES!

  3. Heh heh you make us alight MOL. Speaking of Springs, every Spring when the big lady and big man cat do their Spring cleaning, they find a ton of Springs (the toy variety) that Scout hides under the fridge! And yes, in our household we all need a Spring in our step. It's going to be a tiring long week for all!

    1. Nissy used to keep his pen collection under the fridge! Unfortunately, we now have a new fridge and there's this metal flap thingy that prevents us from hidin' stuff under there. BELIEVE ME, I've tried. MOUSES!

  4. Good thinking Nerissa. So Logical that only a cat can think of it.

    1. Well we cats ARE the more intelligent species. purrs

  5. Darn peeps messing with those springs. We decided we're staying on Standard Tummy Time, we get hungry, food best be served!

  6. Good luck getting the stuffing and springs back into the chesterfield. That was a good plan though. I much prefer the fall back to the spring forward. XO

    1. Yeah, kinda like unpacked suitcases. The fact that it all fit before doesn't mean it ever will again. MOUSES!

  7. I am pretty impressed by the Daylight Savings Time thing - it got us dinner a whole hour early! So our springs must be working right... my human says we don't need to go testing them.

    1. You must still be on Standard Tummy Time, like Brian. purrs

  8. Hehe oh my just as well you found out they were defective springs, who knows what might have happened if peep had tried to go forwards! Could have been stuck there, going up and down, till the fall. Mouses!

  9. eye noe this commint haz nothin ta due with this post

    boomer ♥

  10. From personal experience, I know that the stuffing makes a great nest to take a peaceful nap in! Well, until the peep finds you sleeping in said nest and flips her poop (again from personal experience) and she takes it away to re-stuff what you so deftly and aesthetically-pleasingly un-stuffed.

    1. Flips her poop... BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! purrs

  11. You are one smart cat with those springs. Good thing you had a comfy landing though. That could've been a disaster!

    1. VERY important to make sure the landin' spots are comfy. MOUSES!

  12. MOL Seville, there's so much springyness happening effurywhere dude!!! MOL MOL


I love hearin' from my pals. I really, REALLY do. PURRS.
