Simon Is Hearing Things on Tabby Tuesday

tabby tuesday simon 08132019

Wait. What? Was that the doorbell? Phew, it was only on the TV thingy, but you never know. Ever since last week I’ve been hearing doorbells. Yep, I’m still a bit of a weenie when it come to strangers, especially strangers that announce their arrival by bonging on the doorbell. Oh that’s scary. The Dad needs to figure out a way to disconnect that thing. What Brian? Oh, Brother Brian said they would just knock on the door and I’d run anyways. Hey, he’s right, I would scoot off rather quickly.

Oh well, it’s been quiet so I’ve been playing with the toys in the toy basket. As you can see, I dug out the silvervine pillow, it’s pretty popular here with all of us and it sure doesn’t stay in the toy basket for long. You can also see the leopard print kickeroo, yes, I kickeered the roo out of that thing too. I’ve had to make up for lost toy time after two days in hiding.

Anyways, guess what else? There was some more noise outside, but it wasn’t the kind of visitor that comes inside. I’ll show you tomorrow if you stop by. Have a totally terrific Tuesday everyone and remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Simon, it is very scary when strangers come, especially if they ring the door bell. You just have to be on the alert at all times. You all have a fine day.

Better safe than sorry!

Our lated beloved black cat Buddy was faster than the speed of light when the doorbell rang or when we had company, he’d hide until they left. For us though he was so sweet and loving. Miss him:(

It’s very, very quiet where I live, so the slightest noise causes near panic with everyone(lol). Those toys sure look like fun! Hugs, RO

Our kitty Sophie runs and hides if the doorbell rings too, but cat bro Bert comes running to see who it is.

I’ll bet all those toys will be out of that basket soon!

I used to have a loud buzzer doorbell that would make Misty and johnny jump all the time. When they renovated the building, somebody painted over the button so it doesn’t work anymore. Johnny doesn’t miss it and neither do I.
Happy Tuesday all.

You gave us a good giggle with kickeered the roo out of the kicker. You and Sister Dolly have the biggest and best eyes. Glad things have calmed down enough for you to come out and play.

Simon you look like you’re on “HIGH ALERT” in that photo!! Isn’t it awful when sounds interrupt your play time? I bet that silvervine kicker will sooth your nerves!

Hugs, teddy

I can remember our kitties hiding when the doorbell rang. Sometimes I couldn’t find them for hours and hours. It’s what kitties do. I’m glad you’re back to normal.

Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. My best to your peeps. ♥

Simon…OMCs you should live here. NO body ever rings our door(except once in a blue moon)…they always knock and it is more of a tap tap and I have no idea why!!
We two seniors rarely hear the tap tap which is a good thing I guess no solicitors

Our black cat Shadow runs to the door when the doorbell rings, he is our guard kitty. He is without fear.

We didn’t realise that you were a bit of a….scaredy-cat, Simon! You must learn not to fear the doorbell!

Looking forward to tomorrow!

It’s true, if there is no door bell, then there is knocking. Kitties can’t take a break! Glad it’s been rather quiet there. Have fun with your toys 🙂

Brian is right, the doorbell is much less scary than someone pounding on your door. That’s like savages at the gate! Enjoy your silvervine.

The “eyes” have it – wow, could you get them any bigger? And send some of your toys on over – they look like fun!

Simon, our doorbell just rang and we all got very excited. Only Lightning barked. But we are happy because it is the a/c guy who we hope is going to fix one of our units so the upstairs stay cool. It is too hot to be without that nice cool air.

We will be back tomorrow to find out what all that ruckus was.

Simon, Lexy loves greeting visitors and she runs to the door when the bell rings. I’m a little more fickle. It depends on my mood.

Simon, I’m the same way. I’m a weanie…I admit it.

Hey Simon, Moosey used to not like the doorbell, either. Knocking was okay with him, though!

We’ll see you guys tomorrow, to find out who was outside!

Had a great Tuesday and it sounds like maybe you did once you realized the door bell was on the tv thingy. That pic looks like you are scared to pieces.

Charlee: “As a cat who is also wary of strangers, Lulu, let me explain to you why Simon might be less than thrilled about that …”
