The Rudy Report

My pathetic kittie look. (how am I doing?)
Hey kitties! Here's to a new week. It's me - RUDY! With your Rudy Report. Parker wants me to thank all of you who made her birthday commentathon a success, she had over 170 birthday wishes and that means that we raised over $42 to send to Wayside Waifs. The 'rents are going to even it up to $50 and send it to them in memory of our friends Fat Eric, Luxor, Molly and little Wintergreen.
I've heard a terrible rumor that has me a little upset. It seems that the 'rents think they need a vacation! And yesterday Mommy got out her suitcase and started to go through her "vacation clothes". This does not look good and rumor has it that Friday morning they are leaving us for Lake Tahoe! Why would anyone want to go near all that water? Why?!?!

Mommy says this is why...
Mommy says that no one should feel sorry for us as our most favorite sitter is staying here while they are gone. I say that I am going to milk this for all it is worth! Mommy also says that she and Daddy really need a little "'rent time". Whatever... 'rents can be so weird.
Stay cool kitties, it's Monday and for 'rents that seems to make them less happy, give 'em a purr or two to make them feel like Saturday!
ps - A. Nonny Mouse, we love you whoever you are! Smoochies!

Lake Tahoe! Don't your humans realize that it's one of the deepest lakes in the U.S.? They could fall in and never be seen again! I guess if your favorite pet sitter is going to be taking care of you, it won't be so bad if your humans fall in the lake, but still...

A. Nonny Mouse is very, very cool!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Wonder what they see in all that water? Their reflections?

We hope you have a good time with your sitter while they have a good time getting wet.

Jacqueline said...

Rudy, don't be upset, sweetie, just keep practicing your pathetic look and use it on the sitter=combine that look with a sad mew and maybe you can get extra treats!...It's worth a shot!!...kisses, sweet friends...Calle, Halle, Sukki

You guys hold out for tunas. Even if you do like your sitter, you can still milk it!!

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Look sad, make sad little sighing meows and yoo can get da sitter to spoil yoo really good. It's true, beans is weerd. Our favorite sitter, our nefew, akshooly called and asked if mom and dad were going away any time soon so he could come and kitty sit! Well, he sed to get away from his room mates but we all know he just wants to visit us...right?

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

We fink it absolutely amazingly wonderful to make the donation on behalf of our dear friends that hadta go the bridge. Thank you so much.

A holiday? Near water? Are they mad?

Huffle Mawson said...

What a great donation on behalf of those kitties. I know how you feel Rudy, my parents just up and leave me alone too.

Forty Paws said...

Would you send that wonderful pet sitter to Texassss when you are through so that our Maw and Paw can take a vacation?

Luf, Us

The Creek Cats said...

That's wonderful about the money raised, woo hoo!!
Sorry to hear the rents are leaving you, but don't worry, they'll be back soon!

A. Nonny Mouse is totally pawsome!

Furkidsmom said...

It's pawsome that you raised a lot of green papers in your commentathon!

Why do 'rents think they need to go away from us? We just don't understand.

Daisy said...

It is very wonderful that your 'rents are making a donation in honor of our friends at the Bridge!

The Island Cats said...

Aw, we're sorry the rents are leaving you...you gotta milk this one, Rudy...make them feel real bad!!

And congrats on your commentathon! Thanks a lot of green papers you raised!!

The Island Cats said...

Oh we mean THAT'S a lot of green papers you raised...silly typist mom!

AFSS said...

Mommy wants to go to Lake Tahoe for some rent time. Beans are so WEIRD. I means we has a POND here, what is wrong with just being happy with that.

Forever Foster said...

What a lovely thing you did for your birthday, Miss Parker. Enjoy the milking of your 'rents for treats and games. Make them feel guilty. That's what we do ;)

Cory said...

Rudy, you look so extra handsome today!

My mom just adores Lake Tahoe and the way the air smells so lovely there! Hope your 'rents enjoy their time there and you make sure you milk that sitter for lots of treats.

Fin said...

Mom says she thinks it looks cool there too? Odd...

Pierro said...

Happy Monday Rudy to you and your fursiblings.

I hope your beans are haivng a very good time. I am sure they miss you
Enjoy your favorite sitter!

-d ma said...

as always, nice report rudy. tahoe looks like the place to be to me.

Hannah and Lucy said...

Remember to do lots of loud sighs and sad eyed looks this week to make them feel extra guilty for leaving you to go and look at a big puddle.

The Paw Relations said...

Sorry we missed the commentathion and Parker's bithday. Happy Belated Birthday Parker!

What a pawsome amount raised.

We're sure you're parents will be home before you know it.

Elaine said...

That's so wonderful about all the comments and the donation going in memory of Fat Eric, Luxor, Molly and Wintergreen!

I can kind of see why your mom might want to go to that Lake Tahoe, Rudy! You have fun while they're away with your favorite sitter. :)

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Isn't Tahoe a little off their beaten path? How dare they leave you. Personally I'd go on a hunger strike--wait I already did!

The Furry Kids said...

Lookin' good there, Rudy!

Kea said...

Hi Rudy! Absolutely, you must milk your humans' absence for all its worth. Mope around, only eat when fed copious amounts of treats, and so on.

Does this mean we get a house-trashing party?

P.S. Congrats on the commentation--very successful!

Brian said...

Hooray, you did so good with the Commentathon!!! Now, oh no, a vacation!!!

Admiral Hestorb said...

I am so proud you raised green papers for a wonderful cause like that.

Busby and Raymond said...

Rudy, very cool that Parker's birthday blog raised so much money!

Lake Tahoe is nice if you like mountains and gorgeous scenery and stuff like that. We prefer our own beds and bird tv.

Katnip Lounge said...

Hurrah for the commentathon! Mommy says we will have to do something like that...we'll think up a good reason...

Rudy, pretend to work on a hairball this week. A lot. That'll make your Mom feel all guilty about leaving you. heh heh.

castle diva said...

Happy belated birthday, Parker!

We're happy where we are and don't understand why the woman says she wants to get away for a holiday.

Ms. P and Cinza

ABBY said...

Ooo the rents picked a booteefull place to go and visit. Rudy my Momma envies your rents! But we kitties say play it for all that it's worth, don't let up...but maybe we all need to plan a good house trashing party while the rents are gone...whaddaya say?

Mariodacat said...

Geeesh - seems like the rents just had a vacation. hmmmm, I feel for you buddy - even if you has a wonderful, live-in pet sitter who lavishes attention on you. Well, on second thought, dat is not sounding too bad. Beg for lots of treats. Be sure to ignore your rents when dey finally do come home! You don't want to appear like you missed dem.

Cindy said...

It looks beautiful there in your photo! I'm sure you'll both be spoiled rotten while they are gone.

Eric and Flynn said...

That does look like a lovely place where your 'rents are going. We know what it is like to be deserted though.
That was a lovely idea to make the donation in our sadly missed friends names.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Lake Tahoe? Brrrrrr! All that melted snow, and it's so deep and cold and stuff? I think it's too dangerous for them to visit. Besides, there are all those tempting "kah-see-noze" around and they might lose all your food money!

They should stay home and attend to your every need instead.

Millie said...

Oh boy! Mom has been to that place, and she says it is very beautiful. I hate it when she goes gallivanting. At least you get to stay home and don't have to go to kitty jail.

Sweet Praline said...

Your mom better leave plenty of treats for the sitter to give to you.

My mom went to Lake Tahoe a couple of years ago and she said it was breathtaking! Whatever that means.

Shaggy, Scooby and Scout said...

NO NO NO! Not another vacation!
Thanks be to Bast that ours aren't planning anything like that. Well, dad is but its for work. Mom will still be home so its not a total tragedy.
