How to scare your co-dependants to death



During our last visit to the Vet, our mom and dad decided that instead of locking us all into our cat carriers, they would put up a kennel gate between the front and back seats of dad's crew cab truck. They thought being able to move around and lay down where we wanted would make things less stressful on us. Smudge loves it. This way, he finds a small hollow and curls up quietly for the trip after voicing his initial displeasure for a couple of minutes. Magoo sits behind Dad and caterwauls for the entire trip at the top of his lungs. I like to check out everything and look out every window, climb on the kennel gate and bat my dad through the rungs. One thing my dad did not factor on was that I would figure out how to roll down the window with the power window switch. So here we are going down the freeway at 100 kph (60 m.p.h), when the window in front of me starts rolling down. My Mom screams. My dad says some very bad words (two bars of soap bad) and frantically tries to lock the windows. He then mistakenly pushes the window switch down instead of up (GM changed their window switches this model year). So here we are blasting down the freeway, the window is three-quarters of the way down, the wind is blowing through my fur, Mom and Dad are screaming, and Magoo is coming over to investigate. Dad finally rolls up the window and makes a comment that his heart will restart sooner or later. And that is how you scare your co-dependants to death.

  2. Oh my. Mum is laughing so hard she has tears in her eyes. She got those kind of windows too. Maybe that is why I don't get to roam free in the car.

    Like Edsels said, stay safe in the car. But the wind blowing through your fur musta been nice.

  3. Holy catnip, batman! You're lucky you didn't get sucked out that window! Those car windows will do that, you know...they get all sucky and stuff when they're open.

    Did either of your People pee themselves? Cause that would have been really funny...

  6. Excellent! Too bad my Mom puts us in those carrier thingies. But then, she doesn't have the window switches; she has window cranks.

  9. Oh my gosh! I'll bet you did scare them to death! Were dad and mom the ones needing medical attention from the vet, lol? That'll learn 'em to take you to the vet, eh? (And I agree with those above - kitties are way too smart to jump out of windows... aren't they? Well, maybe let's not find out, Bella.)

  11. I'd love to see the faces of anyone driving alongside right then. "What's with them? Is that a dog? Oh my God, look, the cat's trying to escape!" I rode in the car with no carrier when I was a tiny kitten. The woman tried to hold me, but I bit and scratched her, then hid under the seat.
