Bumps, belts and the day everything went kablooey

Wowee…did we ever have a KERAZY day around here the other day.

I wanted to tell you abouts it but it seems Mom totally forgot to take pictures while everything was going on. So I decided I would illustrates it for you in drawings. You ready?

Okay, so a coupla weeks ago, Mom noticed Sisfur Abby had a bump on her back.

Errr…Abby is not really white with black stripes but it was kinda too hard to draw her how she actually is.

Anyways, Mom totally freaked out was mildly concerned and made an appointment for Sisfur Abby at the V.E.T.

Well, the day arrived and Mom put Sisfur Abby in her carrier (which Abby does NOT like). But as they were getting ready to leave, Mom smelled something.

It smelled like rubber was burning or something. So Mom checked around and all of a sudden, she noticed SMOKE coming from the laundry room. So real quick-like, she put Abby’s carrier on a chair and RAN to see what was happening.

When she gots there, she found smoke pouring outta the washing machine!

She didn’t see any fire coming out of it so she unplugged it and totally freaked out again calmly called Dad.

Now, all this time, Abby was walking back and forth in her carrier, cursing a blue streak and threatening to behead Mom. Well, all this activity caused her carrier to shift and WHAM! her carrier fell on the floor. This made her curse more.

So Mom is opening windows and picking up Abby off the floor and apologizing to her and talking to Dad and wondering whether she should still take Abby to the V.E.T. but she really NEEDS to go to the V.E.T. and it already took 2 weeks to get in and she really doesn’t want to wait another 2 weeks and, and, and…

FINALLY, Dad gets her calmed down and tells her it’s prolly only a belt on the washing machine and to take Abby to the V.E.T. But now Mom only has like 8 minutes to get there. So she calls the V.E.T. to tell them that she might be a couple of minutes late.

Well, wouldn’t you know it? Mom drives like a bat out of hell in an orderly and lawful manner and they get there RIGHT ON TIME. But cuz she’d told them she was gonna be late, the V.E.T. went ahead and took an emergency case that had come in.

So Mom had to hang out in the waiting room for 87 million years 20 minutes, listening to Abby curse at her and worrying that maybe it wasn’t just a belt and something was gonna catch fire.

Turns out Abby’s bump has some weird cells in it but the V.E.T. isn’t TOO worried about it. He told Mom that he wants to take it off and send it for a bye-op-see just to make sure. Soooo…Abby and Mom have to go back next week to have that done.

Hopefully, that trip will be a lot less…uh…exciting.

The End.

PeeS. Everything’s prolly gonna be just fine for Abby, but would you keep your paws crossed for her anyway? Thank you, thank you!

PeePeeS. The washing machine is fine. I guess mom’s clothes were so dirty that it caused the motor to overheat. Heehee!

    Sorry, we’re laughin, too. Glad everything worked out okay. We had to buy a new washing machine about 2 weeks ago–but ours wasn’t smokin’.

    Paws crossed that Abby’s bump is nothin.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

    Oh, we love the illustrations…..better than a photograph.

  4. There is nothing funny about smoke and fire and Abby’s discomfort but you gotta know that our mom was laughing her head off at your drawings, Mayzie! Your mom is wearing purple and orange and that’s the True Color challenge comin’ up, ya know! She sure wears crazy colors.
    Our paws are crossed for Abby.

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  5. Oh, boy, those pictures are definitely worth a thousand words! Maybe more! Poor Abby, and poor mom. We’ve had washing machine problems, too, and it’s no fun.

    All 20 of ours plus the human’s paws are crossed for Abby – that’s a lot of paw in her favor, so we know everything will be well!

    What a crazy day for your poor Mom! We are glad it all turned out so well. We will keep our paws crossed for Abby.

  7. Those are terrific drawings and our person would have been a total wreck too. Glad it wasn’t a fire and we sure hope the lump isn’t anything on Abby’s back. A lump on the back like that is not as hard as some other places to take off. We are sending tons and tons of purrs. We sure will keep our paws crossed too. Hope the week end gets better for all of ya. Take care.

  8. Are you sure those are drawings, Mayzie? They look awful lifelike to us! They could probably go into some fancy artsy place like the Louvre…

    Our paws are crossed for Abby (and your washing machine)

  9. WHOA!!!!! What a story!!!! That Abby. She’s a patient patient. Thank doG.

    Aroo, Stuart

    Bwahahahaha! I loved the drawings, Miss Mayzie! Your mom must have taught you because I see a definite similarity in style. Tell your mom that I hope she has recovered from her traumatic day, and give SisFur Abby a big kiss from me and tell her that I am sure everything will turn out fine.

    Those illustrations really told a great story. I’m glad everything turned out okay with the washing machine and I am confident sisfur Abby will be okay too.


  12. I bet Abby had a lump on her kittykat head too when she fell off that chair! BOL! Hope all will be ok with her!


  13. Oh, wow. What a crazy day. Thinking lots of happy thoughts for Abby! Definitely keep us posted!!

  14. Aww poor Mom she was probably going out of her mind worrying!

  15. never fails – everything always happens at the wrong time. we will send Abby some healing purrs (and we hope the washing machine makes a full recovery as well)

  16. Wow, I didn’t know you were an artist, Mayzie! That sounds like a very exciting trip, but NOT in a good way. I hope everything works out well for Abby, the washing machine, and your mom’s tenuous grasp on sanity. 🙂

    Thank goodness you know how to draw!! These pics of the drama were most amazing and informative. Geez talk about exciting!

    Wow that was an exciting day. Love the illustrations! YOu guys make me smile. Paws crossed for Abby!

  22. dachshundnola

    Holy crap I’m glad everything’s okay. I’ll keep my paws crossed

  23. That is a whole lot of excitement for one day! I’m glad that everything turned out okay in the end. I hope your mom is sleeping with one eye open for a while, though, because Abby sounds like one angry kitty.

    We definitely have a our paws and fingers crossed for Miss Abby, too! Suspicious cells are the kinds of things that keep humans up at night worrying.


  24. Woof to you Mayzie!!!! That is way too much drama for a week, much less a day. It’s a good thing that you were able to remain so calm, cool and collected and survived to share this tale. Fingers and paws crossed in NYC for your feline sister. Much love – XXOO – Mazzie

  25. Oh Mayzie, we are very worried about Abbey and we do have our paws crossed and well, my She Two Legged One would have totally lost the plot if she had smelt fire so all in all, we sympathise with the crazy day that it was but we have to say, we LOVED your drawings. They have made our day, we are just sorry that they came out of such a chaotic messy day for you all!



  26. Lorenza

    I have the whole episode in my mind right now!
    I hope everything is going to be ok! Paws crossed here!
    Take care
    Kises and hugs

  27. Hmmmm, so it was just your mom’s dirty laundry that caused the smoke? Not your dad’s or anything of yours? Just your mom’s?
    We want to thank you for your kind comment. We miss our Cotton!
