The Rudy Report

Check out this awesome tail!
Hey kitties, can you hear me now? It's RUDY! With your Rudy Report. We had a very restless night last night. Our little corner of the O Hi O is about 5 blocks from where they have a fireworks display for the town. For the 'rents and all of the other beans it's great because the fireworks are very pretty. But for Diamond Doggie, not so much...Diamond thinks that noisy intruders are trying to steal our stuff and he barks and barks and barks...
The 'rents stay by him and speak to him in soothing voices, that helps ease his stress. But still he barks. I'll tell you, after the first few minutes it can get on a kitties nerves. We try to tell him that it's OK, but he ignores us. Today I am tired and I plan on napping in front of the cold box. The hots have returned with a vengeance! I hope you can stay cool and get some naps in - it's really all that Mondays are good for!

You have a lovely tail Rudy. We hope you can catch up on your naps today. It is no fun if you don't get your full 23 hours in. Diamond is probably tired too after having to protect all of you last night.

Kea said...

Hi Rudy. That must have been both annoying and scary, all the fireworks. Get lots of rest today to recuperate!

And yes, you have a GORGEOUS tail!

Huffle Mawson said...

Poor Diamond. I think you should all have a nap today.

Daisy said...

We are catching up on our sleepies today, too!

Marg said...

I think we are all taking naps today from all the goings on last night. You sure look good sitting there giving us your report Rudy.
Have a great week.

We are very lucky Fenris just gets in his dog house and goes to sleep during the fireworks. Maybe Fenris can have a talk with Diamond, and tell her fireworks are OK!

PS: On the other hand Fenris goes nuts when our neighbor hangs out her laundry.

Poor Diamond he must be so tired today with all his barking - but he was only trying to fighten off the moisy intruders!

You have some great floof!! We had noisy last night too.

Grete woofie says that maybe next year she'll teleport over to help Diamond woofie. She seems unconcerned about fireworks, so just sleeps in the house...but bring out a flashlight or a camera and my Grete freaks out. Woofies.

The Island Cats said...

Aw, poor Diamond! We hope Diamond can get some peace and quiet now from all those boomers...oh yeah...and you kitties from all that barking.

Great tail there, Rudy!

We tried to comfort our woofies last night, but they wouldn't listen to us either. We're going to catch up on our sleep today too.

Stay cool!

Poor Diamond doggie! We got off pretty lightly last night, we only had to inspect the closet for a little while.

Maybe next year the *gasp* vet could give Diamond something?

Katnip Lounge said...

We forgot! Rudy, your tail is amazing...we love the tiny red tip!

Sparkle said...

Sounds like Diamond doggie made more noise than the fireworks! The dog here just whined a lot. She's kind of wimpy. Fireworks aren't THAT bad!

The Creek Cats said...

Rudy, your tail is flooftastic! So sorry to hear about those pesky fireworks. They kept us up most of the night too.

Dat is a furry nice tail Rudy. Take lots of naps, da hots is not fun. Poor Diamond, dem dam fireworks is really annoying. We gots off easy dis year, just a few boomies from da park when dey lit off der display but it's purrty far away so it just sounded like a far off thunderstorm.

ABBY said...

WE had boomers last night too ... from da BAD neighbors who were using illegal fireworks. IT scared us all pretty bad, but at least it didn't last a long time. We had to nap a lot today too to catch up.

Hey Rudy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Lookin' good Mancat ;)
We agree that those fireworks are quite noisy.We kitties mostly ignore them :) It's harder on doggies we think,because they want to kill the things,heehee

Sorry Diamond Dog doesn't like the noise. Would it help if there was a radio or TV on for him to listen too instead?

AttieCattie said...

goggies do tend to ignore us kittehs, dont' they? i am glad to hear you had a good holiday there, even if it was a little too loud.

Harry Spotter said...

Love your tail.

MoMo said...

Your tail is just gorgeous!!!! As are the rest of you, of course.

Good thing fireworks don't bother us kitties as much as they do the doggies.

Your tail is absolutely lush! My mommy likes those kinda tails which is why I have one myself. No goggies here. Just me and my mom.
