More Abuse from the Woman

I really appreciate all of your kind comments about me being sweeter than Jazzy. Woman still holds to her statement that Jazzy is a sweeter Pug though. She says the reason Jazzy is so much sweeter than me is because I bark at every noise I hear and everything I see or "think" I see. She says I am hyper and high strung and that it hurts when I launch from a sleeping position off her stomach straight into the air to throw a barking fit. Apparently, Jazzy does not do these things. Woman says I have control issues. Well, I guess I get these issues from her!

So Woman is still abusing me. She recently told me that when she was at Magic Kingdom, she saw a character in the parade that reminded her of me. Was it Prince Charming? No. Was is Goofy? No. It was a dwarf. This dwarf ...

She says I'm a grump pot. I'm not sure what that means. A pot of grump? Me?

I have no further comment on the matter.

For all you cat lovers, here is a photo of the neighbor cat who torments me.

Her name is Sambuca, and up until yesterday, Woman thought she was a boy cat. Maybe that's why Sambuca likes to use Woman's new perennial garden as a litter box! LOL!

    ooohhh, I like Sambuca. She looks just like Boo Kitty! Now, regarding pugs launching off one's stomach, if it makes the Woman feel any better, Winston does the same thing to me. It's brutal. Sometimes, when I'm lying on the couch (and usually when I'm drifting off into a nice, peacful nap), Winston will jump from the top of the couch onto my stomach. 26 pounds on two tiny feet jabbing into my stomach is not very pleasant. It's a wonder we don't have internal bleeding from our crazy pugs!

    People who really love their cats do not let them roam the neighborhood. When there is the potential for them getting run over in the street, people are not being responsible or loving to their cats. I firmly believe in a leash law for cats. My cat looks just like the one pictured and I wouldn’t dare let him roam free.
    Sometimes cats can disappear when their owners let them use other people’s gardens as litter boxes!

    Gus does that too!!! And when he walks along the back of the couch he steps on my hair and kicks my head a ton too!!
    I have foudn Gus to be very highstrung too and Indy isn't. Indy gets a bit more frantic and vocal around meal times and peepee times though (she likes routine and HATES deviation).

    Oh Norman... I am sure you aren't Grumpy Dwarf... maybe Dopey? lol

    Sambuc looks alot like Misfit too!

    Tami - Sambuca's owners have a baby, and since they don't want Sambuca to accidentally suffocate the baby with love, Sambuca has to stay outside. Woman has threatened to "disappear" Sambuca for digging up her flowers, but Sambuca's owners are good friends, and Woman would have trouble looking them in the eye knowing she disappeared their cat. Also, Woman doesn't know how to disappear a cat, as she is not a magician! LOL!

    Better Grumpy than Dopey, Norman!

    Aw Norman, I don't think you are grumpy!! And I do the same thing, launching off my humans to bark, and hurting them in the process. They say I have no sense of personal space... I like to walk all over them, including on their faces if I can reach.
    Love Clover xo

    Oh, Sambuca looks like Jazzy. That's a great picture of her near the daisies. I'm sorry she is tormenting you Norman. I think it's written in the cat code that they must torment dogs.

    I walk across the pillows at night and stomp on Mom's hair. She claims that I am trying to "bald" her, but really I am just expressing the fact that I totally love her, enough to walk on her hair even!

    Dear Norman. You just have to remind Woman why she loves you so much, and how boring her like would be like if she did not have you. How to do that is up to you. I do know it is terribly unfair to be compared to another pug. Besides girl pugs are pushovers, and you are not, thank goodness.
    We like you just the way you are.

    I've heard Ian use the term "grumpy" in reference to a turd. A "grump pot" is slang for a "chamber pot".

    norman, don't feel bad about stomping on the woman...i'm certain it's just your way of showing your love for cats love to walk across my 'chest' in the middle of the nite...i'm sure they mean no harm, right? y'all aren't meaning to hurt us people are you??? are you???

    ps: cats should never go outside...that's a bad thing.

    pps: are you giving the woman the stink eye in that picture?

    Oh, Grumpy Norman, that was a good comparison to you with that dwarf picture...but you are the sweetest and not grumpy just sassy!

  • At 8:10 PM, Blogger Frances Louise said…

    Well, Norman, you can tell Woman about the proverb, "The apple doesn't fall far from the tree . . . " Mommy says that means both of you are sweet!

    Norman, I hear your pain. My mommy and daddy say I'm "crabby" and Daisy is more happy go lucky. They say they love me just the same (they better!) but geesh. Maybe if they got a little pesty sister, they'd be crabby too.

    Pug love and sympathy from,

    Oops! I left the above message yesterday under my other account (it's a pen name). I just realized today.

    Haha. My Mother would say the same thing about me. She thinks I"m a grumpy old man.

    Ugh. Living next door to cats: Now that's torment!
