The Rudy Report

Sekoh kitties! It's me - RUDY! with your Rudy Report. Frost on the pumpkins and the radiators are on! My little (well, maybe not little) hiney has been very warm sitting on them. As a matter of fact all of us kitties are loving the warmth of the radiators and we're stuck to them like Velcro. I am trying very hard to be a good big brother to Parker. She's OK, but not very feisty any more. Lots and lots of naps on the 'rents' laps and lots and lots of treats and stinky goodness. She has adjusted to her poor eyesight and still can jump up up things that aren't real, real high. She sends her love and smoochies to everyone.
We have not seen Rogue in a few weeks. We're hoping he found a home. That's what we are hoping...
But in the same way Rogue appeared, we had a very interesting thing happen Saturday evening. Mommy was relaxing on the sofa with Parker when she saw a big yellow tail through our front porch window door. She got up and told daddy to hang on to Diamond and she went to investigate. There, ON OUR PORCH, was a huge yellow lab dog. He had a chain collar on and it was attached to a leash. But there were no tags (Mommy said a few bad words about that). He was extremely friendly and he let Mommy take him by the leash. She walked up and down the sidewalk hoping that someone would stop and say "hey, there's my dog." Then it got dark. Diamond was not happy about this turn of events, and the 'rents did not want to stress our Parker, so Mommy put the big yellow lab in her car and they went to our little shelter. Mommy got a bed and some food and our new friend went into a kennel. He was happy for the food and he bedded down for the night. We are hoping that someone is looking for him and that they have the sense to call the shelter. Otherwise, he'll get medical clearance, a much-needed neuter and he will go up for adoption. Since he's such a sweet guy, his chances for adoption are very good. Mommy calls him "Goober" since he was such a sweet, dopey guy.
I am just happy he's safe and NOT ON OUR PORCH anymore! A few of us got a little poofy when we saw him. I'm not naming names though...
Keep those tails high (and not poofy) kitties!

We're hoping that Rogue found a wonderful forever home too.

Sounds like that woofie made his way to the right house. We hope his owners find him soon.

Purrs and prayers to Parker.

Parker darling girl, please keep feeling happy and content with your 'rents. I'm sending power purrs and all my kitty loves right straight to you.

The Island Cats said...

"Goober" must belong to someone since he had a leash on, but we can't believe they aren't looking for him! If we got lost, our mom would be frantic until we were found! But we hope he can be re-united with his family.

We're purring non-stop for Parker and we're happy that she is doing okay. Give her some smooches from us.

Thanks for the report, Rudy! I hope that silly goober finds a great home; if he had a leash on, it sounds like he has/had a home, but I wonder why he wasn't neutered?!?!

Purrs to sweet Parker.

Great report. Felt like the Sunday paper and catching up on things. Way to go!
We have had several hard frosts here where I live. I am afraid the nice weather is gone for awhile.

William said...

OMC, a DOG?? On the porch??? EEEEK! Your mommy is very sweet to take care of him anyway. Fie on his family who hasn't bothered to.

Anyway, you're a very good bro to look out for Parker.

Angel and Kirby said...

WE hope Rogue found his home or one that will take care of him. The Yellow Dog was lucky to come to your house so he could get a bed and food. Hopefully his people are looking for him.

We are glad Parker is doing so well. We know is is hard on every in the family!

Forty Paws said...

Rudy, you are quite a handful aren't you? Well, we are glad that your Mom volunteers at the shelter and could put Goober there rather than keeping him at YOUR house! And we hope that Rogue found a new home too!

If beans let their woofies wander they deserve to have them taken to the shelter.

Hope he gets a good responsible home.

Smoochies back at ya.

Oh my! What an intruder that must have been. I am glad your Mom did not want to stress sweet Parker. That is important.

Mark's Mews said...

We hope that Rogue found a home and that Goober finds his home.

Purrs to Parker...

Marg said...

WE sure hope that Goober does find a good home. How strange for him to wandering around with a leash on.
We sure are sending many purrs etc. to Parker. And many hugs to the hooomans. Take care

Once a neighbor's dog figured out how to get into our yard and was playing with the dog that lives here - we all got pretty poofy over that! Fortunately, he had a home, and I hope this dog does too. I also am keeping paws crossed that Rogue has a home too. And as always, I am sending purrs to Parker.

Laila and Minchie said...

That doggie sure was lucky to find your house! Hoping he finds his owners or a new forever home.

Hugs and purrs to Parker Pie!

Tillie and Georgia said...

We have our heaters on too and we love the heat ;) We purr for Rogue and hope the woofie finds his owner.
Good to hear things are pretty well in your home. Give Parker a hug from us.
Purrs Tillie and Georgia,

Wow - what an exciting report Rudy. We really hope that Goober finds his home again, or that he finds an even better new home.

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

We hope he is claimed by his loving family ~ or rehomed to a lovely home. Somebody must be missing such a sweet boy though.

Purrs for Parker.

God bless your mom!
Hope all turns out well for that guy!!!

We are glad y'all were able to help Goober, we hopes he finds his home. Did he have a microchip? We know sometimes people don't think they need to put their names & numbers on the collar because their pet has a microchip. Mommy tries to tell them that not everyone can access the data on a chip.
