Questions for our Pals


Hi... Bugsy here.... Knuckles and I have a couple of questions for those more experienced cats out there...

First, here I am sitting on the "throne." Well, I've noticed that the throne isn't as perky as it used to be. It seems lower to the ground and I have to sit very still so it won't tip over. Here are the questions: Is it lower to the ground because I am heavier? And, does it tip, because I am bigger? Or.... it is time for a new throne? (Brian... you are the throne expert and I know that HH will do what you say, so feel free to tell her like it is.) All opinions are encouraged, especially from throne owners or those who have engineering degrees.


Second, Knuckles is getting ready for IBD (International Box Day on June 30, 2011). I've tried to tell him that paper bags don't count, but he continues to practice in this crumpled old bag. As you can see he has some of his toys in there with him. Anyway, help me convince him to move on to boxes, so we'll be ready for the celebration on Thursday.

Thanks.... Have a great day everybody!!!

We have that throne too, but really it was Annie who claimed it, so we don't use it. It's in the garage now, waiting to be disposed of. But it was looking a little worse for the wear and was sagging anyway. So we vote for a new throne, boys!

Marg said...

We think probably a new throne is in line for you boys but it might have to do with you are just a little bigger. We have never had one like that. We think you look good in that bag Knuckles. But boxes are a lot of fun too.

I´m not that old = 14 months.

Hey there Knuckles it´s much moore coosy to be in a propper box than in a paperbag I asure you !!!

We think that throne still has some life in it, Bugsy, but you can always use another one!! And we'll be celebrating IBD...we love boxes!!

Buggsy - I don't have a designated throne - the whole house is really my throne! Knuckles - Now what is this stuff about not liking boxes???You need both pal cuz you can have tons of fun in each - just hop from one to the other.

Bugsy, we think you need a larger throne, cuz you have grown.

Knuckles, we think sack day is really more appropriate.....especially for us as we very seldom have boxes large enough for us.....mostly only when we move, and we HATE moving!!!!!!!

We love y'all very, very, very much.

MOL Bugsy: My answer to your questions about being heavier is..."the pot (Me) cannot call the kettle (you) black!! In other words a full figure girl would never tell anyone they were getting heavy.

Bugsy my dear, if your throne ain't perky, get a new one. After all you are a king and kings only have perky thrones!

Knuckles you really need to box clever next Thursday ;)

Well, my dad is an engineer and I haves da feeling he would agree withs a new throne...never should weight be an indication of anything!
Loves da foto of Knuckles in da bag...hehehe!

I you need a new higher throne. Sometimes things just shrink for no good reason.

Catsparella said...

Hi Bugsy! I love your "pondering" expression in that first pic! As for your throne, I'm not really sure..but do you ever really need an excuse to get a new one? :D

Thanks so much for telling us about IBD..I had no idea!

Knuckles: Get your cute little hiney in a box asap!!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! xo

Brian said...

HeeHee, mine is that way too and the vet just said I was overweight! Yep, they tend to wear down after a while, make sure they are nice and smushed together, but they do go lower with weight...and time. I'm on my 3rd one!!!

Furkidsmom said...

We think it's time for a new throne!!!

Boxes are fun, but so are bags. Maybe Knuckles could get in a bag on top of a box??????

I think a new throne is in order. I don't know about getting Knuckles out of the bag, though.

Maybe it is time for each of you to have your own throne:) We love IBD, and we don't think it much matters if the B is a bag or a box - just have fun with it.

Happy weekend.

Bugsy, yes, it is time for a new throne. And I don't see a problem with Knuckles and his bag - boxes, bags, they are all good!

Thanks for stopping by my birthday party!

Bugsy, you're not fat! You´re so cute ... and can have big bones, which makes the seat look smaller.
And Knuckles think the bags are boxes?? Poor thing! I think he will not be able to participate the box day like that!

Bugsy we think your throne is just 'well used' you look so snuggable and soft. You may have to put up all the bags and bring out the boxes so Knuckles can practice with the 'real thing'. Hugs and nose kisses

OKcats said...

Hmmm...we're not going to be much help at all. If you want a new throne, then we think you should get one. However, we have a scratcher like that, and we like it just as it is - all shredded up! As far as IBD, neither of us like boxes, so we can't play. :(
