The Trouble With Tortis

Well, here it is, Torti Tuesday. So while all the Tortis are out there showing off their supposedly gorgeous coloring and "tortitude," I'm going to give you the real scoop about living with a Tortoiseshell Cat.

The trouble with Tortis is that they only have two speeds, "Full Blast" and "Sound Asleep." When I feel like playing then fine, let's play. But I have my limits. Plus, I need my mid-morning Catnap. Sure, I'd like to be friends (sometimes), but that doesn't mean I want to be bopped, batted, poked, or pounced upon everytime I walk by. Or in the middle of a nap. Or when I'm trying to eat. Or getting a drink. Or asking for treats. Or snuggling with Mom.

So after the last time I tried to prepare for a box report, I decided to be more assertive in getting ready for the upcoming review. But here's what I have to deal with.......

All poor Rascal is trying to do is check out the box.

Here poor Rascal is being bopped viciously by his little sister.

Poor Rascal! She won't give up!
See what I mean? Tortitude.

Oh, Rascal. What suffering you endure! Perhaps you are right, I should definitely not encourage any cat sibling discussion in my house.
