Leia Takes Over Mancat Monday

An Open Letter to Mom:

We need to talk. Last night you did something very, very rude. I know that Toby was having a yak attack on the bed in the wee hours, but snatching the barf towel you keep on it WHILE I was occupying it was unacceptable.

Yes, I understand there wasn't time to be polite and ask me to move - so you say - but I'm afraid I just can't accept this action lightly. I will consider the mitigating circumstances carefully, as I am a very fair ladycat, and render a final judgment later.

For now, go and think carefully about what you've done and how to be a better hoomin in the future. I leave you with the most painful punishment I can devise:

The dreaded Back of Disrespect.


  1. Well, that was kinda rude of her, wasn't it? She shoulda grabbed another towel for Toby.

    Pee ess...we hope Toby is okay.

    1. Thanks. Poor guy has always had a sensitive stomach. Some nights 3am is a rough time.

  2. I hope Toby is feeling better! Yes, I think it's appropriate to show the back, but not for too long. Mom loves you. :-)

  3. Oh yeah, that was rude! She should have kept a spare, just in case you were using the regular one.

  4. Oh no, that's terrible! But I guess your mom was in panic mode and couldn't find something else. I'm sure she regrets every action she took!

  5. That was very rude of her and she deserves the back of disrespect! Maybe she needs two barf towels so she doesn't disturb you next time.

  6. Leia OMCs totally unacceptable behavior!!
    WE think maybe Toby and your mom deserve demerits...because w/o the yakking there would have been no yanging.
    Hugs madi your bfff

  7. That just sucked all 'round, Leia! Not only was your human awakened in the most awful way, but you got your towel yanked, and Toby was sick! Yuck on three fronts.

  8. Aww... hope Toby is OK :)

  9. I do believe this could be a job for NUCAT!! If you find you don't ge satisfaction, give us a call and we will come and negotiate on your behalf! No win, no fee. And we always win!!!

  10. The Back of Disrespect. Oh dear. We've been on the receiving end of that. Hopefully the human will have learned her lesson.

  11. Leia, I know how you feel. With us, we get flung off our mom if we're all on her on the couch and she hears anything out of the ordinary. Let us know if your punishment works!

  12. The Back of Disrespect is the most fitting punishment. They REALLY get the picture then and regret their actions. I have been shoved off the bed with a foot under the covers while just starting to hork up my snacks through the night. KICKED OFF is what *I* calls it!!

  13. Oh, my heavens! She didn't even say "excuse me" or anything!??! I hope that whole Back of Disrespect will teach her a thing or two!!!
    Yours sincerely,

    PS: Is Toby OK?
