Tabby Tuesday with Simon and the Oops Leap

tabby tuesday simon 05262020

Hello gang, here we go with Tabby Tuesday once again. You know me, I’m ready to romp on a moments notice.  There’s an old saying though, it says look before you leap.  I guess it’s an old saying because the Dad told it to me and he’s pretty old.   Well, as it turns out it’s a pretty accurate saying, you should always look before you leap.

As you can see from my photo, I’m getting ready to leap from the cat tree down to the chair where Seal lays.  I always leap down from up high and give her head a bath.  You probably remember me saying that from time to time.  I wash Seal’s head and then she washes me under my neck.  So, leap away I did.

Oops!  It wasn’t Seal in the chair, it was Brian.  Oops, I didn’t stay long and I didn’t wash his head either.  Okay, I jumped out of the chair and ran down the hall.  Sorry Brian.  Oh, Brian and I get along fine as long as I don’t get all up in his face.  That leap might have qualified as some serious face time.  Yes, yes, yes, look before you leap, always!

Have a fun Tuesday everyone, I’ll see ya soon. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

We all make mistakes, Simon.

I bet that surprised you when it wasn’t Seal, and surprised Brian even more!

Perhaps you need the equivalent to Air Traffic Control? You know, to keep you away from other cats and ensure safe landings and take-offs?

That is OK Simon, Brian probably didn’t mind too much. You all have a fine day. Dee says hello.

Oooops and Leap in the same sentence always means expect the unexpected.

Brian is King of the Manor we all know that

But, what fun is playing it safe, Simon? A wee bit of not-looking-before-you-leap is okay too…spices things up a bit!

That is great advice. We’re glad Brian didn’t get too mad at your leap.

A slight miscalculation. I’m sure you’ll be more careful next leap. You made me laugh out loud.

Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.


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

Whoopsie! I’m glad that Brian is a forgiving guy. Maybe when you find Seal, he’ll want his face washed anyway. I bet it is really cute when you two bathe each other.

Surprise!!! Maybe Brian might have been more surprised than you. MOL! BTW, that pic looks like you’re in the middle of two bun halves making a Simon sammich.

What a surprise for both of you! Sometimes such a mistake is a timely reminder.

Luckily, you and Brian didn’t have too much FaceTime. Definitely a good idea to look before leaping.

Would it be easier for you all to identify one another if you wore different sweaters.

Ooh. Yeah, we’re sure Brian gave you quite the what for after that, Simon!

Oops, Simon! We can all be forgiven an occasional mistake – I am guessing it’s pretty hard to look when leaping from such a height. And have I told you what lovely eyes you have? (P.S. Don’t call Dad old …)

We are delighted that the oops leap was not one where you hurt yourself, as that is what we thought from the title. We are not certain, however, how you mistook Brian for Seal! But you are fine, and that is what counts. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

Oopsies! Oh well, we all make mistakes. We’re just glad it didn’t end in a fight or something.
