Hi, my name is Ruby!
You guys don’t know me… but I am the original member of the tailless cousin’s club. My older cousin, Alex, didn’t want me be alone and a couple of weeks after I had my tail amputated he had his done too… and by the same doctor to boot! Now if that doesn’t prove what an amazing guy he was, I don’t know what does… but then again, I bet you already knew that….
Man, have I had an interesting few weeks…. It all started about a month ago. First my parents stayed home on a Monday morning. Then my cousin’s Marla and Robyn came over my house. Then by lunchtime my Aunt Hilary and Uncle Marc showed up. I didn’t know what was going on, but I didn’t really care. My mom was making me tunie juice!
Everyone had a lot to say… but then again you already know my Aunt Hilary and Uncle Marc so that shouldn’t be surprising. They kept on talking about a storm or something. I couldn’t care less. All that mattered was my parents weren’t letting me out of the house. Seriously, they were crimping my style. I had places to go and people to see.
My Aunt Hilary brought over a little yellow back of treats for me. I was excited, but I didn’t want to seem overly eager. After all, I had to focus my efforts on getting out of the house. A certain mancat was expecting me…If you know what I mean. So I didn’t give her the time of day.
Hours passed. No matter what I did no one let me out. I was soooo angry! But then something strange happened. Right as everyone was finishing up dinner the lights went out. My mom ran for candles. My Uncle Marc whipped out flashlights from his bag. No one was too concerned at first. But in moments that all changed. Water started pouring through the house. Everyone started freaking out, running from room to room, moving furniture, and moving clothes. It was chaos! Everyone looked so upset. I don’t know why. I was having fun. It was so exciting! I was loving every minute…. Thoughts of going outside were gone. Being inside was just way too much fun!
The next morning the lights were still out and the water was still all over the house. My parents, cousins, Aunt and Uncle all looked upset. I don’t know what was wrong with them? Don’t they know fun when they see it? I would say it would be their loss, but in their haze no one thought about feeding me!
And it was then that I remembered…. The day before my Aunt Hilary brought over a bag of Felidae Tid Nips (chicken flavor) for me. I looked around and saw them sitting on the bench in the kitchen. I made a mad dash for them and used my paw to knock them over. Unfortunately I couldn’t open the bag but my Aunt Hilary came to the rescue (sometimes she is good for something – I don’t know why Alex always complained about her). She opened the bag for me and let me tell you… they were delicious!!!!
