Audrey, the Cat Whiskerer

Audrey has taken the situation into her own hands as far as texting with Toonces Whiskers.  She thinks that if she just creates a contact name without any other information that somehow the message will magically get to her.  It would be something if it really worked that way.  Every stalkers' dream...and how dumb guys already think that Twitter works ("Dude, how come J-Woww's not writing me back?").

Imagine my surprise when I saw this new addition on my iPhone:

Message Send Failure???

Then when I saw the messages, I realized that Audrey is putting words into Whiskers' mouth.  So these are the messages that she would like Whiskers to send her:


What, am I not praising her enough?  Just how low does your self-esteem have to be to pretend to be getting flattering texts from a cat?   I see how it is.  Pretty soon, "Whiskers" will start giving her demonic edicts a la Son of Sam, telling her to perpetrate all manner of torture on her mother who clearly just doesn't care enough to hand out those pats on the back.

"Go in her nightstand."
"Get the Tylenol PM."
"Flush it down the toilet."

Whiskers must. be. stopped.

  1. Um...I'm gonna err on the side of lil miss Son of Sam and say it really is just some great imaginative play and not a cry for electronic pats on the back. Flush the Tylenol PM just in case though. By the way, you can't just create a contact with no other information and expect the message to get there? No wonder I haven't heard back from Megan Fox. Seriously, that is truly creative and imaginative on Audrey's part.

  3. Just remember that pretend play is a really good thing even if it is pretend texting...with a cat. At least it is not a pretend cat.

  6. Hilarious. But not doing anything for my fear of creepy ass cats.

  7. There were no iPhones when Bud was little. I used to encourage her to listen to the voices in her head tho... unless they told her to get naked at the airport or something, of course. ;o) Kids can be so imaginative. :)

  8. My cat tweets. Maybe you could direct Audrey to get Whiskers to Tweet with her instead. Keep the tweets private between her and Whiskers. Something that would have to be monitored though as to make sure no one is trying to follower her.

    Yes, you have your hands full with her. At least she's thinking and figuring out how things work.

  10. Audrey did ask me what Whiskers and TJ's last names were. She was very surprised that there were so many Johnsons!

  11. I love reading your blog and wondered if you had ever heard of the book "A friend like Henry",written by Nuala Gardner. It is the remarkable story of a dog named Henry and a boy with Autism

  12. @Anonymous: I have not read that one. Is it going to make me feel guilty that, as much as Audrey loves kitties and doggies, I haven't gotten her a pet? Probably huh? I will check it out...thanks for the suggestion...and thanks for reading!!
