BIG Trouble, BIG time.

The People got a new ginormous TV last night. It is to replace the one in the cat free room that didn't have enough "put things in" whatever that means. So since the "old" TV is a year old and slightly less ginormous than the new one, it came to live downstairs in the common space. Of course we all had to sniff it! And of course I tried to jump on it...the Awesome Man (I'm reconsidering that name, at least for today) got REALLY REALLY mad at me when I tried to jump up on the TV. He got "speaker mad" at me. I should explain....

When I was a kitten the Awesome Man was already my favorite person. But he ignored me and didn't pet me or play the bite-game with me. One day I thought I'd hit him where it hurt and I chewed the cover off of his center-channel speaker. This thing was up high and hard to get to, but I did it. I chewed an entire corner off. When the Awesome Man found out, he yelled and screamed so loud the Woman was scared for me. I was scared too. I slinked off and hid under the bed for a while. He was SO MAD!! But he got over it and I never did that again.

So last night he yelled at me because he wanted to let us all know we are not allowed to try to jump on this new TV. Well, of course I didn't listen... He ran after me and yelled and screamed and scared me so badly that I lashed out at him as I was running away. The Woman heard me shrieking and....and....I bit him. I'm sorry! He was trying to pick me up and I was really scared. I would never bite him on purpose, I LOVE HIM! He didn't get mad at me for biting him because he knew I was just scared and running away and my hiss/bite caught one tooth on his arm. I went and hid under the bed for a long time. The Woman came up to console me and it made me feel better. Later that night the Awesome Man came up and gave me lots of pettings and said he wasn't mad at me and he understood why I got so scared and was sorry.

I'll tell you what, either I'll never touch that TV again...OR...I'm going to destroy it in spite. I haven't decided yet.

We getted one of those gineormous tv's too and fancy loud speakers. The speakers are too loud and they scare us and we leave the room when they BOOM!!! I really don't understand why your Daddy got upset, but, I think, mine would do the same thing. Good thing Momma's are softies.

Purrs to you Chase....

Oh Chase, do not feel bad. It is only natural to bite by mistake when you get really scairt. It sounds like your Mommie and Daddie understand about that.

Oh sometimes Cheysuli bites when she gets mad. So does Georgia. We don't get too mad at anyone for biting...

ginormaous tvs have a short life span here. we had two big screens that only lived to be 4 each. snowys a sprayer and it was in a room that cant be closed off. our new option is to get the big tv but on a stand so the cats play on the stand & leave the tv alone. and we have to figurines, the ceramic kitties from the house of green walls on top so they dont try to get on top. hunter was sitting between them the other day, but he was pushed off and didnt get back up.

Don't feel bad Chase. Our beans just don't relize how much they can scare us sometimes. On the other hand use this to your advantage....guilt is good for treats.

Oh Chase I is so sorry you got scairt. The only time our Momma has efur raised her voice to any of us wuz when Ping kept sprayin on all her stuff. She fussed real loud at him and made him go onto the back porch. But he sat there wif dis furry forlorned look on his koot face and she melted and let him back in and loved all up on him. She has tried efurryfink to get him to stop sprayin, but nuffin werks. So now he has his spots which she just cleans and disinfects.

Poor Chase! I'd have bited him and not been so sorry. But I've never made my man that angry. Under the bed is the bestest place to go when scared. If you need a better place to hide, come on ofur to our place.
Purrs and a comforting head lick,

Poor Chase! Your Awsome man should not scare you so. Poor Baby, you should get plenty of scritches.

Get on top of the TV and poop on it. That'll teach him to yell. Just don't pee on it. It might make the TV go bzzzzzzt and stop working.

Oh, Chase, I'm so sorry that you were yelled at like that. I love my Dad very much, but he has gotten VERY MAD at me too. Of course, I've done bad things like pee on his music stand, but he eventually forgave me.

Oh Chase, sorry to hear you were scared and bit the Awesome Man. It sounds like you both made a mistake, and you forgave each other, which is the important thing.
