Safe and Sound Saturday

Howdy!


Well, now that I'm home safe and sound and had a nice night with the beans I can tell you a bit about my Big Adventure. It was pretty cold for the two nights I was gone and that was MomBean's biggest worry-it was 30 degrees one night.

MomBean put some signs up arund the neighborhood yesterday mornin', and a lady on the next block called that afternoon saying that I'd crashed at her house the night before. Somebody had been chasin' me about and I broke part of her porch latticework hid out there for a bit. Then the nice lady threw a blanket on her bench for me and offered some water and food. (Wasn't too hungry yet.) She offered to let me inside, but I wanted to stay out. The next morning I was already off exploring more of the town. Nice Lady felt bad that I was gone before she saw the sign, but it made MomBean happy to know that I was safe for the night.

Now, when MomBean went to go search around Nice Lady's block, I somehow looped back without being seen. MomBean went all around the park, the woods behind the neighborhood, etc., shaking my treat box like mad. (Did I mention that it was raining too?) She decided to come back home and when she walked in the door, there I was rolling on the carpet.

I feel bad because I made MomBean cry.

While she was out, I walked over to a neighbor's house and plopped down on their porch for a bit. (They're friends with my beans, so they knew I was missing.) When a friend of their son came over, he mentioned that there was a cat sittin' on the porch. Thankfully the son remembered about me and called his Mom. I was recognized by my handsome manliness purple toenails, so he scooped me up and brought me home.

I'm sorry for makin' evfurryone worry about me, MomBean is getting me some tags and a new collar today, and I heard somethin' about a vet and 'microchip'. I hope it's ranch flavored!

I am glad you are home safe and sound. Mom is thinking about a microchip for me too. I want a Beef one.

Whew - that was a big adventure and all of us here in O Hi O are so happy you are OK. I think a microchip may be just the accessory for you!

Willow said...

Oh, I am so glad that you are home again! We were all very worried about you. I am told that I was given a microchip when I was a kitten at the Humane Society but I don't know what flavor it was...

Dragonheart said...

Monty, I am so glad that you are back home! I have a microchip implanted in my shoulder. I can't wear a collar because it would rub my skin raw, but the microchip will hopefully identify me if I somehow managed to escape the house.

CT Foodie said...

Oh Thank God. WELCOME HOME! Schmaybe there should be a big party welcome home celebration! It's so nice to see something good happen around the cat blogosphere.

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

So, you've had your big adventure...now, are you ready to stay home? We're all chipped (I think dey was cheese and sour cream) but mom still has a fit when we sneek out...

jenianddean said...

Whew! What an adventure. We are so happy that you are home safe and sound. A ranch flavored chip would be yummy!

Radcliff, Allie, Luna & Ozzie said...

Sound like Monty was the only one who wasn't worried during his trip.

Monty, how did you manage to sneak out? And why? You're ever so much safer in the house.

We spend most of our time trying to keep other kitties from sneaking into our house.

Mickey said...

I'm sooooooooo happy yer back!!!
I was missing for a whole day once.Upset my Mom too :(
Adventures are fun,but not when they worry your family.
IF there is a next time,leave a travel plan ;)

Tara said...

Monty, it wasn't just your Mombean who you made cry! I'm so glad you are home safe, although I must confess that sounds like it was quite the adventure.

JUST DON'T DO IT AGAIN!

Tara

PS Mom's sending out your door prize today.

Sheri said...

So happy to hear you came home. Don't make your Mom cry anymore. You better get one of those tags with your name and number on them. My kitty Tiger wanders off everyday. Its a good thing you found a nice lady to take care of you while you were out.

Maggy & Zoey said...

Well, this is just the VERY BEST NEWS of the day! We are happy and giggly and joyful... welcome back oh wayward one. Don't do that again!

The Devil Dog said...

Monty, you should feel bad about making your mom cry. Naughty kitty, naughty kitty. Don't do that again. You had EVERYONE so worried about you.
Lucky, mom and I are really glad you are back home where you belong.

The Crew said...

English Daisy said...

I iz so glad you are now unlosted. I hav a micrerchip too, even tho I hav neva been outside thuh frunt door. It's gud insurance, mine mum sez.

Jimmy Joe said...

That sounds like a fun adventure, Monty, but you shouldn't go away from home for so long. It makes the mommas get really worried. I'm glad you are back in your own digs now. Hmmm, I wonder if my momma is gonna get me a chip--I'll have to tell her if she gets me chips, I want fish, too.
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

Welcome Home, Monty!

Dearest Monty Q

You have clearly taken slave training to a whole new dimension. I commend you for making the human sick with worry. She will now appreciate/cuddle/feed/give more attention to you than ever before. Well done.

I also find it highly amusing that you decided to stay the night at a neighbours house! Tell me, what was the menu like? I do hope it was superior to what is on offer at home!

I am very very happy that you are home safe and I know that your human slave is too.

*purrs to you monty q*

p.s I am pestering the human to get the box of treats ready for you and your human. She is so slow at times!

Daisy said...

Wowie! What an adventure you had. Next time you decide to go Walkabout, you should leave a note. I was very, very, very worried about you! My Mommie has been thinking about a microchip for me, too.

ps: Did you get grounded?

poppyq said...

I sure is glad you are home brudder. The advice my mum got about starting a kitty wearing a collar, was to first start with making you wear it a couple of hours every day for the first week. Den on the next week to wear it all day but have it taken off at night. Then by the 3rd week it is yours.
My microchip didn't hurt at all and I was only a 8 week old baby, you is a big mancat - you can handle it!!

I is sorry your mombean cried. It must be all dem hormones. You be happy now mombean.

never never never do that again Monty. I have a microchip and it didn't hurt at all to get it in.

Mommy feels much better that I have ID tags and a microchip (that can't break off!) just in case.

I'm so so so very glad you're home. You need to give big snuggles to Babybean. She was awfully worried about you too.

Hot(M)BC said...

Yeah, leaf a note next time yoo go walkin around. We dunno bout those chips, but we better get some ham chips in case Miles bisits and gets hungry for ham.
Purrrrrrrrs,
Sanjee and the rest of Alla Us

The Furry Kids said...

What an adventure, Monty! We're glad you're back. We were so worried about you. There's been talk of microchips at our house, too. EG loves to run out the door and after hearing your story, Momma's pretty nervous.
Have a great weekend and enjoy all the cuddles!

Love,
Tazo

Angus said...

We're so very glad you're home, Monty. We were so worried about you. You're a good friend and a great encourager. Getting chipped is a good idea..I prefer fritos, myself.

Mao said...

DON'T LET THEM MICROCHIP YOO, MONTY!!!! It's reely a radio tracking privaseey invayshun deevice that sends signuls to yer brane withowt yoo knowing -- they're trying to tern yoo into a STEPFERD CAT!!!

Peach Man said...

monty you had quite an adventure! i've done that before and your mama will forgive your mancat-ly ways. we're glad you are safe and back home!

Fat Eric said...

I think you have some MAJOR purring and sucking up to do to your beans Monty, they were pretty upset you know!
I have a chip, I think it was implanted by aliens in the back of my neck before I came to live with my forever humans, probably some aliens are using them to track all of us...eek!

TheSlyCat said...

Monty,
We are very glad that you are home, we think we have those microchips too. But they were not so...tasty. Be cafe at that vet. I'm sure it's for all well and good reasons, but EOWY!

Derby said...

Monty the adventure sounded fun while it lasted, but you had everyone so worried.

Now about the microchip, they don't feed them to you. So no flavor involved, but probably a tracking devise for the aliens. (We are the superior life form here.)

Samantha & Tigger said...

Oh, Monty Q, we are so glad you are back! We were so worried about you! You had a great adventure, but we are glad you got home safe.
Your FL furiends,

Miss Peach>(^,^) said...

Oh Monty I am so releived you are home from your road trip. Please next time ask mommy if it is OK to go. She does not need to worry and flow tears in her deliCAT condition right now. And the kidbean looks so sad in that photo!
While you were gone, I often looked at the pretty graphic you made for me while I was so very sick with those carnations on it....thinking of you:))wishing you a safe return home. And it worked! Now stay put!!!!
Love Miss Peach

Pixel said...

Eric and Flynn said...

Yoo had an exciting avenchur,but now yoo got to make sure yoo stay home. Even though we go out in the feelds and explore and catch mousies, we're not allowed to go on our own. Our mum allus comes wiv us, and when we try to give her the slip, she yells at us to come back, so we know we're safe.

Lisa said...

I'm glad you're home safe, Monty! Only one of my kids got that "snack" of a microchip. The others will just have to never leave the house without me!

Black Cat said...

I'm so relieved you're home safe Monty. Please don't do that again. Your beans were very upset and all of us here in the bloggiesphere were very, very worried:) xxx

Henry Helton said...

You better never pull a stunt like this again. You hear me?!

Kittyhugs and purrs from MaoMao!

Skeezy said...

Nice toenales, dood. Purpul is a nice choice. Ever cunsider alternayting pink and purple??

caspersmom said...

I'm not a regular visitor Monty Q but I am so glad that you are home safe. You sure had a rough couple of nights out. You made it sound like fun even though you made your Mom cry. I got out the front door just once and Mom had a tizzy fit. She thought I was gone for good and I was just down in the gully not to far from her. I haven't done it since. I Didn't want to get my Mom so upset again. She lets us go out back in a fenced area and I have been good.
Monty a nice warm home is the best especially when it is so cold outside.

Casper

Chen & Ollie said...

Oh Monty, you should not scare your mommy like that - especially not in her condition. Our mommy has been talking about microchips too. You will have to let us know what they taste like so we know what to expect!! It's fun to adventure and all but we're very glad you're back. We think you should stick to snoopervised roadtripping with the gang for your next adventure, ok?
Purrs,
Mr. Chen & Ollie

Artsy Catsy said...

Monty, care to share your secret for sneaking out? I've tried everything - including laying like dead weight in front of doors to distract humans by tripping them - but they always catch me before I get out.

Rocky

Max said...

Oh crud, you've got MY people saying the chip word...Buddah has one and even though I won't go outside because there are sticky little people out there, they're talking about it again.

The Woman was kinda sick at the idea you were lost. She can't forget how hard just 3 hours of missing Buddah was. Don't do it again!

Marilyn MonREOW said...

A ranch-flavored chip does indeed sound good -- but perhaps they make chips in tuna, too? *smile*!

Monty, I am so relieved that you are back home safe and sound! I was so worried about you!

Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn!

Rosa's Yummy Yums said...

Ariel said...

Astrid, Kashim & Othello said...

we are so glad you are back home

Diamond said...

Dear monty Q, I am glad you are safe at home again. I have a microchip and it doesn't hurt, in fact you can't feel it at all. I had to have an anaesthetic when I got it. I was having some other alterations done at the same time.

Pablo said...

What an adventure! It's so good that you came home... we were all pretty worried about you, dude. Maybe you should let at least onecat, or onebean, know before you venture afar like that again. But sometimes, it's a spur of the moment thing, I know.

Boy said...

Good to see you back Monty! You had evewyone so wowwied! You mean the chips come in diffewent fwavours? Then can you ask for a megachip instead of a micwo one? I think a micwochip won't be enough!

michico*Adan said...

Dearest Monty,

I am tearing right now, too. I am so happy that you finally come back. And you shall give your mommy lots of lots of hugs~
I can tell that your mommy was really crazy for sure, you are her precious!! Oah.... Luckly you are so safe right now.

:)

There is one store in my city, they have more than 20 cats, each of cats has a collars with the store address and phone. Maybe your mommy could also try it~!
But, it's really hope you are not out again, that's could be too dangerous. Thinking of your missing time, still scares us, that is really lucky of you!!!!!!

Let me give you a big hug.
And you should give your Mommy hundreds of kisses :)

Love,
Adan * michico
