A fussy cat hides from chaos

Photo of cat's hindquarters and tail sticking out of a backpack in a messy room

In the midst of chaos, a fussy cat escapes to her safe place.

Ursula the British Shorthair likes things tidy. When chaos encroaches, she hermitifies in what she perceives as a safe cave where she is invisible. Bad luck: I’m packing for a trip and I need that backpack right now.

    Aww, tough luck for Ursula.

    If you hadn’t told me what was going on I might have thought she had produced the chaos pulling everything out of the pack while looking for her favorite treat.

    1. Well, no. She’s quite a tidy cat who likes things on time and just so.

      1. Elizabeth says:

        And proud of it!

  3. They do like to be kept informed about what is going on!

    1. So true. But communicating such complex information is beyond me any tips?

      1. First you have to gain their attention for two minutes – Never mind, forget it!

  4. Very funny photo. I sometimes wonder if cats have a sense of humour – in this case with a willingness to look a little ridiculous. Or, perhaps she wants to come on the trip too.

    1. I am certain that Ursula has no sense of humor when it comes to her own dignity. Laugh at her at your peril.

  5. I love your sense of humor.

    1. That’s lucky, because I sure need it these days.

    Ursula to Rachel “no you don’t, last time I didn’t come with you…this time, I’m coming”

    1. Nice try, gal. But I’ve got 75 years on you and I’m on to your wily ways.

    Oh woe! The Staff going on a trip? does that mean that Ursula will have to go to the … that unmentionable place … the C Word. Or does she have a bespoke Cat-sitter? substitute staff? the latter, I trust.

    1. The latter, I’m glad to say. Or rather, she is visited twice a day by a devoted acolyte. I confess, the photo was taken a few weeks ago but in a couple more weeks she will be again abandoned.

    I am relieved to receive this update. If I lived in your city I would be volunteering and providing five-star service. After many years training under Chocolat’s demanding paw, I am an accredited cat-keeper.

    1. I bet you’re the tops. Thanks for your willing, but the honour goes to my neighbour William.
