Stupid is as stupid does.
I know, I know... I know what you're thinkin'. You're thinkin', my Peep #1 has done somethin' super stupid... AGAIN.
And do you know what? You'd be right about that, for sure. MOUSES!
Picture it. My house. Yesterday mornin'.
"No. NO! Don't you chase him. No, Dionysus. NO!"
And then there was silence.
Wait for it...
Okay, so the peep didn't actually use the word, "MOUSES!" but as this here is a family-friendly blog, I've done a little editin' on behalf of the peep.
Actually, if I'm bein' honest, what she yelled wasn't really a word at all. It was kind of a... Well... Well kind of a really loud, unintelligible, blood-curdling, wakin' of the dead, kinda scream.
But I'm pretty sure what she wanted to yell was "MOUSES!" or somethin' similar, but totally unsuitable to appear in print form, on my blog.
So anyway, that's what I heard comin' from the kitchen, yesterday mornin'.
From what I've been told, Dionysus - the timeshare cat - was in the kitchen waitin' for his breakkies, when Nosy-Neighbour-Cat appeared at the kitchen window. Well Peep #1, bein' the stupid... I mean, soft-hearted imbecile that she is...
What? What's that, Peepers? WHAT? Callin' you a "soft-hearted imbecile" isn't any better than callin' you "stupid," you say?
Hmmm... Stupid... Soft-hearted imbecile... WHATEVER. MOUSES!
So anyway, Peep #1, bein' the super stupid peep that she is, felt sorry for Nosy-Neighbour-Cat, and opened the kitchen window to let him in.
Now at this point, I should just mention how Dionysus and Nosy-Neighbour Cat don't really get along.
Well I guess Dionysus - the timeshare cat - wasn't too pleased with the peep lettin' Nosy-Neighbour-Cat inside, which is why he started to stalk him. And that stalkin' was why the peep was tellin' him not to chase the neighbours' cat.
Now the peep, bein' a peep, figured Dionysus would listen to whatever she was sayin', and obey her. She figured, he'd stop what he was doin', sit down like a good little boy, and not chase Nosy-Neighbour-Cat after all. You know, just 'cause she told him not to.
Moments later, Dionysus was flyin' through the air, and there was black and dark grey fur flyin' all over the place.
Now one might think that lettin' Nosy-Neighbour-Cat into the house in the first place, was the most moused-up stupid thing Peep #1 did yesterday mornin'.
If ONLY Peep #1's level of stupidity were limited to that.
Let me tell you somethin', my friends. When my peep does somethin' stupid, it's not a little somethin' stupid she does. No sirree. Not MY peep. When my peep does somethin' stupid, she goes all-out, full-blown, gold-medal standard of stupid stupidity, for sure.
IT'S LIKE SHE THINKS SHE'S IN A CONTEST OR SOMETHIN'!
You know, a contest to see who is the stupidest of the stupids.
But actually, if there were a contest for that, she'd be winnin' it, for sure. She'd be holdin' the world record. She'd be THE ONE TO BEAT, for generations to come. She'd...
Well... I think I've made my point. MOUSES!
But back to that moment after the moment of silence.
That would be 'bout the time when Peep #1 instinctively dove for Dionysus - the timeshare cat. With one fluid motion, she swept him up with her left arm, and then turned, so her back was to Nosy-Neighbour-Cat, preventin' the two cats from seein' one other.
You know, so that they would forget about fightin', and stuff like that.
For a split second, it appeared to have worked. Everyone seemed calm.
And then the next?
Well that was when Dionysus - the timeshare cat - was SINKIN' HIS TEETH into the peep's left hand. MOUSES!
And if you're thinkin' that that was about the same time Ol' Peepers here let out that bone-chillin' scream that could awaken the dead... Well you'd be right about that, for sure. MOUSES!
So anyway, the two cats are perfectly fine. Not a scratch on either one of 'em. Bit of loose fur, but nothin' more.
The peep, on the other paw...
Well the peep spent most of the mornin' at the doctor's office and then later, at the pharmacy, gettin' antibiotics.
And then she spent last night listenin' to me. That's right, listenin' to me. Listenin' to me, remindin' her about how she has been bitten before. You know, on account of her stupid stupidity. On account of her stupidly tryin' to break up cats who are fightin', which you would think she'd mousin' well know is a really stupid, stupid thing to do.
I mean, HOW MANY TIMES does she have to be bitten, to figure this stuff out?
Well like I said, STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES.
And not only that, apparently, it's forever. MOUSES!
Well, we understand, Pal, but you gotta remember that CATS -- ALL cats -- are irresistible.ReplyDelete
Too true. TOO true. PURRS.Delete
Oh, my. She meant well, good-hearted and all. I am glad things ended okay, at least. *Yikes*ReplyDelete
Painful, but okay. PURRS.Delete
Oh, Savvy - my doctor simply updates my tetanus shot automatically. Doesn't even ask.ReplyDelete
He keeps you prepared, huh? purrsDelete
Sorry the peep had to get meds! Cats and their arguments! Glad your Peep is ok!ReplyDelete
She's fine. And even if she weren't. It kinda was her own fault. MOUSES!Delete
Oh man! I can't believe your human did something so mouse-brained!ReplyDelete
I know! And the worst part is, it's not the first time. Sometimes I REALLY WONDER 'bout my peep. MOUSES!Delete
hmmmm—me and Mom L was hopin' your peep#1 had learned. Guess not, huh Seville? Guess now she will clearly hopefully understand you don't have tons of time to devote blog posts to her lack of unnerstandin' of us cats...right?ReplyDelete
True. But... But actually... ACTUALLY, some of my most popular posts have been 'bout mockin' the peep. MOUSES!Delete
I hope her hand will be okay. Everyone knows, you don't tug on Superman's cape, you don't spit into the wind, you don't pull the mask off the Lone Ranger and you don't mess around with fighting cats (or Jim). 😂ReplyDelete
Yup. Good rules to live by, FOR SURE. purrsDelete
Well, do you think your peep learned this time??ReplyDelete
I don't know... She appears to be pretty slow on the uptake. MOUSES!Delete
Oh no! Well, it may have been stupid, but we understand that your Peep was just reacting to the situation, Sivvers. We hope she's okay, and that the antibiotics do their work quickly and completely. Purrs and prayers!ReplyDelete
Yup, the antibiotics did the trick! Good thing, too, on account of someone rippin' apart another nip mouse and I might need her to knit up some more. She couldn't knit with her sore hand. MOUSES!Delete
Oh no! The poor Peep, that sounds awful.ReplyDelete
Yeah, her whining about it sounded pretty awful, too. MOUSES!Delete
Oooh I say, biting satire, love it. Oh hang on, what! you mean this stupid repetitive thing keeps going! Mouses, there was me thinking peep might grow out of it. Maybe theres some tablets I could get? Or a spot on anti stupid treatment?ReplyDelete
Biting satire... BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! purrsDelete
Well, we let 2 outside cats in and they stayed!ReplyDelete
Yup. Happens. Happens more often that you might think. MOUSES!Delete

Yeah, and apparently, the stabby place for peeps does stabby things, too! Along with the antibiotics, the peep got her Tetanus booster shot. MOUSES!Delete
Oh wow, your poor mom. We hope she recovers quickly from this.ReplyDelete
Me too! I need her to recover fully and get to knittin'. More nip mice are required. purrsDelete
We're glad no cat was hurt ! We can't believe your peeps did it... But we're sorry she had to spend time at the doctor, and take meds, and all that medical stuff. PurrsReplyDelete
Yeah... But I had BETTER NOT BE HEARIN' 'bout how SHE had to go to the doctor, next time my check-up rolls around. MOUSES!Delete
Uh oh. You're right, Seville! It's like these morons ... err ... humans are challenging each other to be MORE stupid! And we have to put up with it! On the plus side, I've started writing all those un-repeatable words down to use at a later time ;) Did I mention I'm grounded for the rest of my nine lives? ~Bear CatReplyDelete
Grounded for all nine of your lives? MOUSES! But think 'bout the incredible list you must now have. purrsDelete
Ohhhh your Peep.......Happy Easter to you all :)ReplyDelete
Marty and the Gang
You have a good Easter, Marty? purrsDelete
Have a super Sunday...
Noodle and crew
Yeah, it is unfortunate Peep #1 is lackin' in the department of brains. MOUSES!Delete
Oh no! When will the peep learn? I guess you'll just have to keep talking to her. Anyway, I hope she's okay.ReplyDelete
She's okay but whether or not she will EVER learn is still up for debate. MOUSES!Delete
