The Teenage Years ...


Sigh ...my sister Rosie has hit feline adolescence 


not listening 


You are not the boss of me 


Give me the car keys ...I want OUT of this house


Here's just a sampling of recent Rosie related incidents ...

1. Playing peek-a-boo I am going to get you with Lulu, my bunny sister 

2. Jumping up on the counter while my assistant is making sandwiches and snatching  pieces of turkey - not once, but three times!

3. Using the lap top key board as a scratching post

4. Ripping a hole in a new, unopened bag of dry cat food - so when my assistant picked up the bag all the food fell on the floor.

5. And my personal favorite, giving herself a bath on the kitchen table just as the peeps are about to sit down for dinner.


Busy, come back later. 


Do you believe what I have to put up with?

Ahhh! Girls and the teenage years. Don't miss them at all. Rosie is being a regular bum isn't she! I do love her ears!

GOOSE said...

PIP I am so lucky, I don't have to put up with this sort of thing. And what's up with the ears? Is that the latest teenage cat craze?
Blessings,
Goose

The kitties are different, aren't they. Freedom, Casper and Nikki feel your pain...just a little different...they live with a senior kitty.

Sam and Pippen said...

Dude... our kitteh brudder still does lots of those things and he's 17! But that's probably because he's into the cranky old man stage!

Marg said...

Pip. be glad you don't live in our house. There are hundreds of cats here. (not really hundreds) But there are way too many. Rosie had very interesting ears. She sounds like she is just a cat and can get away with the stuff. You know Pip, that cats rule unfortunately for us dogs. Hope all of you have a great day.

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Sounds like time for a time out and take away the nip, Pip!!! Have to keep those rebellious teens under control.

Brian said...

But that all sounds so normal Mr. Pip!

harrispen said...

I hope you were able to take advantage of the food on the floor incident. Sounds like Rosie has settled into your new home a bit too well.

Berts Blog said...

Ah Pip, I kinda understand your pain. Cats sure do think that all the rules DO NOT apply to them. You know, like taking a bath on the kitchen table.

You are a very patient pup, Pip.

rottrover said...

Pip, you are truly a saint!

Rene said...

LOL, all right Rosie!

injoyinmylife said...

Oh Pip, those teen years are so tough. I feel for you. However, Rosie is pretty darn cute! Hang in there Pip, it will get better.

Dip-Dip and the Bridge said...

There was some very inappropriate sniggering coming from our mother when she was reading about Rosie's misdemeanours.
We, of course, are horrified, just like you are Pip!

We feel for you Pip, all we know about cats it to chase, but we do know teenagers hang on it's gonna get worse. BOL

Sarge said...

Hey Pip!
Wow, it sure sounds like a teenager to me! At least she's entertaining and none of this trouble is your fault. I'm always happy when it's not my mess! BOL.
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

sprinkles said...

I feel your pain, Pip! I used to have a kitteh and he was much the same way.

The good thing about Rosie being so naughty lately is that all the focus is now on her so you could probably get away with things a little easier now. Just don't take it too far though!

Jo's World said...

Bathing on the kitchen table while peoples are eating there???.....

Too, too disgusting. Put her down in the basement for a day or two, maybe she will change her wayz.

Kisses,

Stella and Mom

Tucker The Crestie said...

Wow! Rosie sounds a lot like Finn right about now! He turned two a month or so ago and now he is the classic teenager!

2browndawgs said...

Rosie sounds like quite the character.

Two Doodles and a Dane said...

Awww Pip! you should get a special award for having to live with a teenager, even worse a kitty teenager!

We feel you pain

mayziegal said...

Whew! That Rosie sure does think she runs the place, doesn't she? (But, well, I kinda want to learn that trick about ripping into the bag of food. Do you think she'd teach me?)

Mayzie

mayziegal said...

PeeS. Thank you, thank you for your kind and sweet words on my bloggie today for mom. They really meant the whole wide world to her!

Corbin said...

Hehehehe this is why there are nooooo kitties in my house!
-Corbin
Ok... really the reason is bc my dad is allergic. If he wasn't, I wouldn't be here and my house would be invaded with 50 cats.

Remington said...

I hear you, my friend.... Somedays....

Kippy Marrie said...

Amiguinho Pip...
Tenha paciência, os adolescentes são assim mesmo...
Então ... Voce tem que aguentar e colocar a ordem na casa. Rssssss.
Mas é difícil não é amiguinho?

Sua irmã é muito fofa e lindinha, apesar de ser adolescente, e ter a fase de querer tudo e mandar.
Rssssss.

Voce está lindo com esta camisa de rock. Muito fofo, como sempre está.
Fica com o Papai do Céu.
OBRIGADA POR SUA AMIZADE!

Love and licks, Winnie

The Island Cats said...

Oh Pip! We think what Rosie does is so normal!! We 'specially like to bathe on the dining room table!!

LP said...

Come to our house Pip for a vacation...or um... a dose of hell which would makes Rosie's antics seem quite tame in comparison!! Six cats Pip.Six.Count em.

Your pals in disbelief and utter horror ,

Kristin G. said...

Hmmm, sounds like your feline sissy has quite a case of teenage naughtiness. I hope you don't pick up some of her habits, Pip. You would never, right!?! ;)

Sammie and Avalon said...

O Dogness! Sounds like Sammie with the octostuffings; is Rosie bein' nice to YOU??? On behalf of Mom, we mighta been a little tiny upset about the bag 0 foodables sprinkling the floor, but we woulda known what to do about it wink wink!
Hugs xoxo

Your personal favorite is mine too, Pip! Wow, that Rosie is going wild. You better guard your snacks closely or she might eat them!

jen said...

Oh Pip! I am so sorry that you have to share your house with such an adolescent!

I laughed out loud that she was playing peek-a-boo I'm going to get you with the bunny:)

BOOTIFUL Rosie, I know this is untrue. You are far too innocent and lovely.

haopee said...

Awww, Pip. You know you have to be a responsible big brother if you want Rosie to grow into a mature cat.

Huggies and Cheese,

Haopee

Pibble said...

It's a travesty Pip! I don't know how you do it. Such patience!

Declan said...

OMG! You are living with KC's long lost sister... or aunty or something! is she evil too? Deccy x

Peggy Frezon said...

Oh Pip that's rough! I think you are the boss, not the c-a-t. Maybe you better put some scheme into action and see what you can do about the situation.

Sue said...

I love this post!! I've always thought that as difficult as dog's adolescent times, cats are even worse. After all, cats can go places dogs can't.

Relax, it doesn't last forever and someday you can look back and laugh.
Sue

Archie and Melissa said...

Shawnee the Shepherd said...

Pip, do I detect a tone of jellyness in your postie? Mebbe you wish you had kitteh powahs so you could do those things? There is one thing both you and I can do... Pawdon me while I go start werk on that unopened bag of dog food sitting on the floor.

Beans4Biscuits said...

Poor Pip, the things you have to endure that no cute-as-can-be guy should have to.

Stay strong Pip, I thinks they grow out of it (at least I hope so).

p-n-s:: the momma here snorted and snickered over the foods falling on the floor...her mentals are fading.

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

We feel your pain Pip. And when they get older, it doesn't get any better! No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

No going back, now. Rosie has achieved full catitude.

We're so sorry to hear about Miss Judi's test results and will keep our paws crossed for her. Mama's been a breast cancer survivor for 17 years and we have every confidence Miss Judi will also be a survivor.

Happy St. Pattty's Day, my furriend!
