|Checkers the Peek-A-Poo|
|Chess when Eve found him|
I'm not sure I could every be hungry enough for CAT food.
Can you believe his owners NEVER EVER looked for him? Anyway, back to the story.
Boy, was I relieved!!!!
|they bring him out|
|me telling him it will be okay|
|me and daddy waiting|
|here he comes|
|I'm the boss - don't forget it!|
Since he didn't like any of my beds, mom put a soft Santa blankie on the floor and he went of to sleep and slept for 5 hours. Apparently he was on drugs which explains why the police were at the shelter in the first place. BOL
|I'm watching you|
I kept an eye on him from under the table or perched on a chair or the sofa
|how am I supposed to eat this?|
Once he woke up he was very hungry but when he tried to eat he couldn't manage with that silly cone. Mom put some food in her hand and he gobbled it up like he hand't eaten in days! Water was another issue. If he could get to the bowl when he finished it would flip from the cone and make a mess. Mom must have taken out about a thousand bowls to find one that the cone would go over but wouldn't flip.
We don't have any pictures of this because Mom was too stressed over finding a bowl and cleaning up the mess this little rat, er, I mean, Chess was making.
For the rest of the evening he would get up and down. Sitting very gingerly! He went outside and did his "business" making mommy very happy. He would come up to me on occasion but I just ignored him because I do not like that cone. I think he may be from another planet.
Daddy spent a lot of time with him during the Georgia/Missouri Game. You know the one that Georgia won! I shoved my way in to remind Daddy that I was here too and I got lots of snuggles too. I put some toys out for him, even though I knew he couldn't get to them because of the cone. But it was fun watching him try to get them! BOL!
Finally it was bedtime. They put the little rat, er, Chess into the laundry room. Mom said it was so I wouldn't help him with licking his rear. YUCK! I'm not going there she could have just left him.
I went to sleep in mommy and daddy's room and dreamed of being alone again! But when I woke up he was still here and that cone is still on his head.
|Checkers & Chess|
Oh well, that's how Chess came to his REAL FOREVER HOME. Nobody around here will lose him and I'm pretty sure I'll warm up to him when the cone goes away. I might even learn to share my beds and toys and other stuff with him!
Besides, he can't be that bad, he looks a lot like me!
