Maybe It's a Boy Thing

If you read the chronicles penned ... err ... typed by my dear friend-that-I've never-met Sheepish Annie, you'll know that she is currently engaged in a monster battle to get out her own door due to certain abandonment issues on the part of Prometheus aka The Absurdly Ginormous Kitty.
I just want to reassure her that she is not alone and that the problem is not confined to males of species felis cattus. That here on the other side of the planet, there is an equally neurotic mum-obsessed male animal.

"You're going to leave me again, aren't you?"
Yes Bear - Mummy has to go out, but I'll feed up the fire first so you're all nice and toasty warm, okay? Oh noes. I can't move. I'm paralysed from the knees down
...okay ... don't panic!
Can I reach the phone and call 000 ? Where's that rescue dog when I need him ?
Ahh! Okay then
I think I may have discovered the explanation for my sudden lack of mobility ...

SOMEONE thinks that he can stop me going out by pinning me to the floor with his full 7 kgs [ about 15 pounds ] of determined manliness
Incidentally the cats could have told him that this particular ploy was doomed to failure. In their considered opinions formed from much greater experience, the old rush-between-her-legs-and-beat-her-to-the-door is much more effective.

Short of being a contortionist - how did you manage the position for the last two photos?!!

Susan, I enjoy reading your blog so much. I just stumbled across it a few days ago, and now I check it every time I get close to the computer, which is a number of times during the day! You're so bright and articulate, and your stories are hilarious! Thank you for making me smile. My name is Keri, I live in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA, and my blog is called Greyt Balls of Yarn. I'm new to this blogging thing, so my blog is quite a bore compared to yours, but I just wanted to let you know where you could find me so you won't think I'm a stalker.
I'll be checking back in soon.

Oh, what a precious. How could you possibly leave that sweet thing home?

Maz I did a sort of twist to the left as far as I could and then held the camera out as far as it would go while still being able to sort of see the screen at the back - there were several not-quite-right-shots in order to get those two!

Susan, your dog is so cute...they really become members of the family and never really learn their place do they.
Have a wonderful day.....:-) Hugs

Bear really is the cutest dog in the entire world.

It's good to know that it's not just me struggling with this issue! I mean, honestly! You'd think we were heading out to backpack the whole world, given the level of hysteria that erupts whenever we move towards the door.

I too am dead envious of anyone who can get down on the floor let alone get up again......
but clone that last canine expression.......and you will make a million.
