Formerly Feral Friday

I'm getting ready for the big game tomorrow - staking out my seat, so to speak. That's right kitties, it's time for the boys in maize and blue to host those "Oh How Mommy Hates O Hi O state" boys in a game of football. I'm choosing to stay in my kitty cube in case Mommy yells and throws pillows and things. I'm not sure if this is proper behavior for a Formerly Feral Kitty, but I think the cube will keep me safe! It's really the only time she gets worked up about sports. Michigan and O Hi O state are bitter, bitter rivals and from the time she was a kitten, she was raised to love those U of M boys and hiss at the O Hi O boys. Daddy says he thinks it's very funny we would come and live on O Hi O!
Today at her hunting place beans are able to dress in beautiful Maize and Blue or whatever colors those O Hi O people wear. It's also the day that the hunting place gives turkeys to their employees and Mommy is one of the beans who help hand them out - over 3,000 birds!
She'll be decked out in her Michigan gear giving those O Hi O peole the bird!
HaHaHaHaHa!
GO BLUE!!!

Three THOUSAND birds? That's a whole lot of turkey! We imagine there will be some very happy kitties in your neck of the woods.
Go Michigan!:)

Good luck to the Maize and Blue! It's gonna be a tough game. We bet your mom will be one of the few dressed in Michigan colors at work!!

There's gonna be a lot of happy people with all those turkeys being handed out!

have you seen an actual wolverine? those things are scary.

Tiki (& sometimes Kesey) said...

Sorry, Parker. We still say, "Go Bucks!!!!!!!!" Mommy & Daddy met as freshmen in the Ohio Stadium Scholarship Dormitory. Their rooms were under the pressbox. There will never be maize & blue in our house. It's all about the scarlet & gray!!!!

OH!! - IO!!

Ah rivalry. I think you are smart to stay out of it.

Sammy and Andy said...

Stay safe, Parker!!!!!!!

Busby and Raymond said...

Sounds like your Mom has a good hunting place. That's fun that she gets to help hand out the turkeys.

We will be happy for you if the Wolverines win the game because it will be a big upset and we like the underdog. We don't live too far from Stanford and we are wondering if Stanford's coach is going to be coaching Michigan sometime soon because everyone thinks Michigan's coach is going to lose his job. Who knows?

Go Blue!

You know sometimes during sporting events tasty snacks are left unattended...

Rupert said...

At first I think you are reflecting in a mirror!

Misses Peach with the litter box report: Yeah for Powder coming out from under the bed for a bit. I know how hard it is not to be ecccccentrik. I have been sleeping in my potty for over two weeks now!
As for Rudy and his mats...try to use a seam ripper to slice through them and then gently furminate it out. THIS REALLY WORKS! Hunny Bunny has matts and Miss Mimi told us about this trick! Try it!!
Love the smelly Peach

Glogirly and Katie said...

Yeah, I've got to have my safe place planned out whenever there's a big game on TV. The sudden yelling is bad enough... but when objects start flying. Well a cat just can't be safe enough.

LC, Ayla, and Iza said...

May your team win. But like you, I have been staying in our cube when annything involving a ball on TV is on. Not that The Big Thing gets all that excited or watches it all that much, but it gets Ayla an Iza running around. I dont need THAT!

Normally we love watching soccer with photoguy. But when our hometeam plays important games we suddenly remember there is an attic in the house. The shouts, the swears and especially the cheers (they do win a lot)!

Princess said...

Yep, this is a good week-end for sitting on laps and purring. I hope your mom's favorite teem wins.

Purrrs to all of you <3

That is nice for your mum to hand out turkeys to the worker beans. Mum and me agree on Go Blue too.
There was an old song here sung to the Ohio fight song.
Liquidate Ohio State and humble Woody Hayes.
They breed a lot of cattle in Columbus
Send them out to graze.

Tiger Lily said...

Your Mommy must have had a lot of fun in her Michigan colors giving the bird(s) to the O Hi O people! Go Michigan!

My Mom is a Syracuse fan and she got to watch the Orange beat UNC in basketball tonight. She was glad to be able to cheer for a change because she groans a lot when she watches Syracuse play football.
