Tabby Tuesday Squeeze In and Dangle with Simon

Yes indeed, it really is Tabby Tuesday and yes indeed, I absolutely fit in this round scratcher, well absolutely almost anyways. It seems that if I get my tail tucked in one of my back legs won’t fit and if I get all of my legs tucked in my tail won’t fit. Sometimes one leg and my tail won’t fit. It sure is a problem. At least it’s really comfortable. Okay, it’s mostly comfortable, but I see Brother Brian in here and he seems to fit just fine.

Listen, y’all know I have Kampanaphobia, yes, that’s a mighty big word that means a fear of bells, in my case, the fear of doorbells. I run and hide when the doorbell rings, seriously, I’m quick and thorough too. The doorbell rang late last week too and a strange human entered our house once again. The Dad said it was a good human who was here to make sure our air conditioners and furnaces work the way they should plus he also made sure our generator was A-O-K. That’s all well and good, but a doorbell ring is still a doorbell ring.

Then, a few days later the doorbell rang again. This time it was a neighbor friend who dropped by with a gift for the Mom. She dropped off some pretty cute kitty cat dish towels. That was nice, but then again anything with kitty cats is nice. Anyways, I did spent my fair share of time in hiding, but not as long as I usually hide. Hey, maybe I’m getting used to strangers coming by. NOT!

Okay, that’s it for me today, y’all have a fun Tuesday. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

we go crazy for da doorbell too… the staff said they will buy a special doorbell where you can record your own noises, so we can pick something what is familiar and maybe that helps to live a little more quiet here (da dad say he will record a f*rt, he is terrible LOL)

At least most of you fits. Those strangers just keep coming, at least they let you know with the doorbell.

We don’t get many visitors here, and we’re okay with that. I love the way your foot’s dangling over the edge!

Maybe you need a longer scratcher for your overflow, Simon.

Well, our cat and one of our dogs don’t like the sound of the doorbell as well. We are still working on getting them used to it, but it’s a piece of work.

Sophie always runs and hides if someone comes to our door. Bert runs to the door to see who it is.

Good job Simon getting into scratcher even though some of you didn’t quite make it. You all have a great day.

I remember the hiding when people would visit or the doorbell rang. Sometimes I couldn’t find my kitties for hours after the folks left. It’s the way of cats.

I think you fit in that scratcher just fine.

Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

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

Tell the pawrents: no doorbell. Make ’em knock knock! Kitties do rule after all.

Simon, I think that you fit just fine; you need to air that tailio out! And Angel has kampanaphobia too!

My boys seem to be kampanaphobia, too. You are right, whether those humans are nice or not, doorbell ring is still a doorbell ring! You look very nicely squeezed in there, Simon 🙂

Simon, I doubt you’ll ever quell that fear of strangers since you were out and about for awhile before you got to come in and be a family with everyone else. XXXX

I’m sorry the doorbell scares you Simon – we removed ours for that reason, but now if someone knocks on the door, everyone scatters – oh well!

You look precious in that scratcher, enjoy sweet boy.

Maybe one day you’ll get used to the doorbell.

A little dangle here and there is not a bad thing, just dangle the one that feels the best!! Personally I think cats curled up, dangling or not are just the cutest! And you sweetie are the cutest.

Maybe you need to fit the feet in first and curl the tail on top, almost like a blanket.

If i ever come visit your house, i will have to remember to tap on the door quietly instead of using the doorbell.

We can’t decide if you really look comfortable in that bed or not, Simon! Although we’d wish you weren’t scared, we do think you were smart to learn that the doorbell means a stranger is coming in! We don’t have a doorbell, but if we did, we’re pretty sure Luke would figure it out pretty quickly too!

Hopefully one day you will get over your fear of doorbells Simon…strangers sometimes bring treats and ear scritchies!!

Kampanaphobia – that’s a very big word that we didn’t know before. We think it is nice that both doorbell rings this time were for good reasons. Maybe you can get Mom or Dad to help tuck that tail in once you have the rest of you in that round scratcher:)

Mudpie HATES bells!!! She came to her forever in August 2015 just as the Presidential debates were beginning. I think the bells going off warning candidates that their time was up traumatized her for life!

Yikes, Simon, that’s quite a mouthful and an upsetting phobia. So no bell on the collar for you, lad. I must say you looking quite fetching with just the one leg hanging out you pretty eyed thing.

Simon, I have a fear of doorbells too. I didn’t know there was a name for it. ~Ernie

Simon, our angel Moosey used to be scared of the doorbell, too. But he outgrew it after living here a while. Maybe you will, too!

I don’t hide when the door bell rings but as soon as I hear a strange voice, I run in my office. The one exception is around mealtime. I welcome the pizza man or the Chinese delivery with open paws.

I’m a human, and I hide when the doorbell rings! Actually, we don’t have a doorbell, but it’s the same when a knock on the door comes out of the blue. Out here in Montana, it doesn’t happen often and it is always a bit of a shock! Have a purrrr-fect week!

Making sure that furnace works when the snow flies is important. Although…..it might mean there would be more snuggling to keep warm! 🙂

I are not a fan of da doorbell either. I quick go in Mama & Daddy’s room and hide under the bed when it rings.
