Miss Petunia is in BIG trouble!!!

At 6:00 this morning DD was in the shower and I was icing my new knee.  Petunia was supposed to be eating in the kitchen.  We heard a crash and she came tearing in the LR like the devil had her tail. Of course, she had that "it wasn't me" look.

 

She jumped on a shelf and knocked off 2 Rachel Ray 10 oz. ramekins.  Was a set of 4, now 2.  Smashed to smithereens. They have survived 3 cats.  Until little P.    Petunia the 4 lb. wrecking ball.

 

It is a good thing she's cute.  I love her to death but my throbbing knee is not helping my mood.

 

Henry may have his paws full with my girl.

Whew!

 

I was afraid you were gonna say that Miss P went running across your new knee.....ouch!

 

At least the ramekins can be replaced!

She's just testing you, to see how quick your response time is.  LOL

@Retired Legal Secretary   Oh, I remember those days well.  It's funny you would say this, because I used to call my former cat, Zoe, a 2-lb wrecking ball.  One morning when I was getting ready for work, she brought down an entire 3 shelf metal unit filled with African violets.  The whole thing landed on the dining room table.  Dirt and plants everywhere.  Needless to say I was late for work that day.

She is a little spitfire!  I'm glad it was the ramekins and not your knee.  I hope you didn't try to get up to see what happened.  Henry says she will calm down.  He did.

@QualityGal  She's in luck because my response time is 0.

 

@2blonde  Oh geez, I bet that was a mess.

Re: Miss Petunia is in BIG trouble!!!

My knee is always covered.  It has a 12" strip down the incision and on top of that is a microfiber cloth with a zip lock gallon bag of ice on it. Even with her Ginsu claws she couldn't go thru that.  I always keep a throw near by if the icing is done. I am not taking any chances.  

 

The long strip comes off in 3 days. There is no way she is going to be allowed see those shiny staples going down my leg.

Re: Miss Petunia is in BIG trouble!!!

Oh, boy, I think I have Petunia's brother. His name is Stormy. I have a loft in my townhouse and it has shelves running a foot or so below the ceiling. I also have an armour with one of those big OLD televisions in it. He jumped from a chair, up on to the armour and from their, he jumped up on that shelving which has all kinds of knick knacks on it. Thank goodness I keep a ladder nearby. Somehow, he only broke one item which I really loved. It was a large metal grasshopper that he knocked off and the legs broke when they hit the ground. He still gives it the eye. BTW, that's where I put my little Christmas tree, so wish me luck. Hoping you feel better soon. Happy Thanksgiving to all.

Re: Miss Petunia is in BIG trouble!!!

Oh my.  I know this is about Petunia and I am really not trying to hijack your post but she and my Chloe could be twins.  I have been married for 43 years and only once had a Christmas tree topple and that is when our big dog chased a cat under it, until now.  The tree isn't even decorated yet and I had to pick it up off of the floor this morning.  As soon as I heard the crash I knew what happened and who caused it.  Miss Mayhem.  Funny/not funny.

@Retired Legal Secretary.   The danger is not just getting a cat scratch on your knee but in getting one anywhere on your leg.  It could become infected and spread to your knee, which would be a disaster.  Cat Scratch Fever can be very serious.  I had a friend who ended up in the hospital with it.  Find some kind of loose pants that will cover your legs.
