The Gambling Mancat
as dictated by Giggles...."Da Gigster here." "Since the biped's imagination has been compromised by her need to think up excuses for why the imitation hardwood flooring is still scattered around the house in boxes, I figured that I'd make it easy on her." As I stated before I was adopted from an animal fair in Sacramento, California." "I was crated off to Fresno where I promptly got scratched in the eye by one of my siblings. I almost lost my left eye, had to have surgery, had to wear a dreaded cone for over a month while the biped and the vet fought infections. Finally I started improving just as the biped decided to go on a road trip to Arizona to visit her cyber friend." "So Grandma, biped and MOI climbed in da car and headed off to Arizona." "Oops, I forgot to mention the litter box, and dreaded cone and the PTU that I wouldn't fit in because of the cone." "It took me about 10 minutes to quit yowling and to start enjoying the ride." I could freely walk from one end of da car to the other while waving at the people who smiled and waved at me from their cars." I got to stand on the biped's shoulder and hit her in the head wif da cone." "You should of seen the people wave and laugh as I tickled da biped wif my tail while I bashed grandma wif da cone." "Everything went fine on the trip down, but on da way back, da car got sick wif some bad gas, or maybe it got gas, but it got real bad hiccups and eventually a nice man wif a truck showed up and da biped, Grandma and I had to cram in his truck while he towed our car to a repair shop and took us to a fancy gambling motel which of course did not allow pets." "Da biped sent grandma in to rent da room (7th floor) while we stayed outside casing da joint for an outside staircase.(none)" "Hmmm, did I mention now that it was now getting dark and I and da litter box were now inside da biped's suitcase (honest da God's truf). "Grandma comes back and we proceed towards da door and wif the strength of ten frantic cats I rip da zipper apart and spring from da suitcase and run into some bushes." "A frantic Grandma and biped quickly catch me and put me back into da suitcase which I NOW know I can escape from. Grandma is SURE dat da people in da rooms must of called security because of a peeping tom(cat) in da bushes." "We enter da back lobby and wait for an empty elevator and make a run for it." "Just as da door closes a lady's foot opens da door and we're not alone anymore." "Da biped is holding da suitcase in her arms clutching da broken zipper and I'm trying my best to escape." "Da suitcase is jumping up and down and just as we get to the lady's floor I let out a meow." "I think Grandma has passed out by now and da biped and the lady stood there silently staring at the writhing suitcase." "Finally da elevator door opened and da lady left." "As da door closed and we began to move you could hear hysterical laughter." "To make a long story short, someone brought da car back to da motel and we all went home da next day."
