the ear

Who did it?



All I can say is, it sure wasn't me.


I bet you're all wonderin' who did whatever they did.  Oh yeah, I bet you're all wonderin' that, for sure.

Perhaps I should start at the beginnin'.

So Thursday mornin', Peep #1 was servin' everybody breakkies, when...

Scratch that.  Thursday mornin', Peep #1 was ATTEMPTIN" to serve everyone breakkies, but Andy didn't come when he was called.

Now Andy not comin' for breakkies when called is highly unusual, as Andy doesn't normally need to be called when there's any kinda food involved.  No sirree.  You open a packet of...  Of ANYTHIN'!  And Andy's right there, front and centre.  Even if what you're openin' isn't actually food.  All it has to do is sound like food to get Andy's attention.

Seriously, Andy will come runnin' when Peep #1 opens a bag of frozen broccoli.

What?  What's that?  What's that you're sayin' now?

FROZEN BROCCOLI IS MOST CERTAINLY NOT FOOD.  Have you ever eaten that stuff?  It's totally inedible, for sure.

Broccoli bein' food...



So anyway, like I was sayin', Peep #1 was servin' breakkies, and there was no Anderson anywhere to be found.

So as you might imagine, the peep went lookin' for Andy.  'Bout five minutes later, Peep #1 found him in the front hall closet.  He wasn't sleepin' in there or anythin'.  He was just lyin' about.


Well the peep brought Andy out of the closet, and what did she find?

She found that one of Andy's ears was all swollen.  It was like TWICE its normal size!

Actually, from what I've heard, it was kinda disgustin'.

Less than an hour later, Peep #1 and Andy were off to see the Wizard...

I mean, DOCTOR.  Yeah, they were off to see the doctor at our local hospital.

Turned out, Andy's ear was all infected, and filled with uh...

Like I said, it was kinda disgustin'.


So while the doctor was examinin' Andy's ear, Andy reached up with a paw, and...

Now I bet you're thinkin' he clawed the doctor, aren't ya?  Yup, I bet you're thinkin' that, for sure.  And it would be a safe bet to make with any other cat. but you see, we're talking 'bout Andy here.

So while the doctor was examinin' Andy's ear, Andy reached up with a paw and managed to lance his own abscess.



Well after the peep and the doctor cleaned themselves up, the doctor went back to work on Andy's ear.

Long story short, antibiotics and pain meds were on board, and Andy and the peep were headin' back home, readying themselves for a couple of FUN-FILLED WEEKS of twice-daily warm compresses and such.

But our little story is not yet over for you see, there's still a mystery left to be solved.  There is still an unsolved mystery, for sure.

Fact is, Andy didn't bite his own ear.

No sirree.  He's a strange lad, that brother of mine, but as strange as Andy might be, his mouth cannot reach his ears.

No...  No, someone else bit Andy on the ear.

And NO ONE is takin' the blame.

The peeps are both adamantly denyin' any involvement, whatsoever.  Mason and Rushton are claimin' they didn't bite their brother, either.  And as for me?

Seriously, do you think that I, Seville the Cat, would ever do a thing like that?

No, seriously.  I mean...  SERIOUSLY.  Goodness knows where Andy's ear has been.  I'm not puttin' that ear in my mouth and that, my friends, is for sure.


So the mystery, it appears, remains unsolved.




  1. Dang it, I sure hope Andy’s ear heals up quickly. Maybe it was one of the weasels who did the bitey thing.

  2. Poor Andy! That must have been some infection for a kitty to not want his foods. Maybe it was one of those darn mouses who bit him?

  3. DNA, whats you need is a DNA test.... and maybe one of those police line-up tings, behind oneway glass. That ways he can point the claw and paw without anyone knowing. OK O can see a few flaws in that, but it seems to work in the movies MOL. Anyways I hope Andy gets better soon.... and not revengeful, else we'll have a new story called Revenge of the Abscess!
    Toodle pips and purrs

  4. MOUSES! That's pretty disgusting, for sure. We're glad Andy will be okay, even if the WHO part of the mystery will probably live on forever...

  5. Ewww. Seriously though, I hope Andy will feel better quickly. Are you sure the peeps didn't bite him? ;)

  6. THat is awful! Poor Andy! Did you do it Seville? Did Andy put his ear where it did NOT belong?
    I too have been known to bite.

  7. Well, I just hope Andy's ear clears up soon! And that WHOEVER bit him doesn't do it again, amirite? Ouch!

  8. Let's hope that Andy got some food after missing his breakfast AND having to go to the stabby place!

  9. Poor Andy! I hope his ear soon heals and whoever did it doesn't do it again.

  10. Poor Andy , clearly a weasel bit him in the ear. I hope he feels better soon. XO

  11. We hope Andy's feeling better. We know you could never do anything like that Seville ... unless you had a very good reason ;)

  12. Poor Andy! We hope this is a quick recovery. But now, it's a Great Mystery... Who Bit the Ear??

  13. I'm so sad about Andy's ear. I think it's called an ab-sess. It's when someone puts a bitey on someone else and they got germs in their moufs. Andy clearly is in a position to rat on a fur sib, but then he'd get ostrich-sized by the others for being a Tattle cat. <--- Not my brofur Herman.

  14. Anderson, you get better fast! And you have our permission to run from Anything that bites you!
    The nerve of whoever it was!

  15. It was a zom! Andy got a bite from a zom! I just know it! EEK! Severs, you'll have to keep an eye on him for 5 days. If he starts to turn, sprinkle cooked broccoli bits and brussels sprouts on him, 'cause you sure don't want an AndyZom running around wild!


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