The Wind Machine...

biped...."The news reported it thusly:

CHICAGO — A monster wind and rain storm that left some 220,000 homes and businesses without power and triggered at least 12 suspected twisters across the Midwest was moving into the Northeast overnight.

Stretching as far south as Mississippi, the system was expected to weaken a bit, the Weather Channel reported, but still threaten severe thunderstorms in these population centers:

biped....."We would of reported it thusly."

smudge...."Firstly it was really, really neat. The wind started blowing. The leaves flew by the window to the left. Then they flew back to the right. Then the left. Then BLAMO! The leaves flew right straight at me!"

smudge...."The front door started banging and I ran for da hallway wif da biped and da dumb dogs."

annie...."He surely did."

major...."Yup we all huddled there while the lightning flashed and the rain poured off da roof. Finally it quieted down a little bit and we all crawled under the desk, well except for da biped cuz she couldn't fit."

smudge...."When I clawed by way out dis morning my head wouldn't turn and I hurted all over my body. Da vet said I had whiplash and I needed to wear dis neck brace."

smudge....."Thank goodness I have my buddy here to compfort me cuz I gots no sympathy from da biped."

annie...."How long do you have to wear dat thing?"

major...."Gigggle...Till dinner time cuz he's going to rip it off when he finds dat he can't reach the Fancy Feast in da bowl."

smudge....."I see now why da vet said I'd need a good lawyer."

Poor Smudge, We never heard of a kitty getting whiplash! Maybe, whippy tail?

OKcats said...

Oh noes! Whiplash! Who do you think you can sue? We had that wind here, but it wasn't near as exciting - none of us got hurt, so none of us have anyone to sue! Rats.

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

Whoa! That sounds scary! No wonder you got whiplash, Smudge! Yes, you do need to sue that awful wind - it should know better than to mess with kitties!

catsparella said...

Oh noes, I hope you feel better soon!

Sabrina, Sam and Simon said...

We did have some crazy winds here in the Ozarks, didn't we! Our Momma was a bit nervous and Simon hid under the recliner, and we thought sure as heck that the hanging plants were going to fly away! We are glad you all made it through the wind storm okay, and Smudge, we hope your neck gets better soon!
Purrs and headbutts,
Sabrina and Sam

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Kitty Horde all nod. Thomas says, "Wow! We had windy, twisty storms here in Smurfreesboro too!! Mom got home just in time with the kid Feeders before it stopped raining. We're glad you're all safe. Jennifer is usually scared but because we were all calm she said it would be okay."

Mumsy said...

Oh, Smucge we are so sorry you have to wear that thing...sure hope you can reach the Fancy Feast okay and most of all we hope you are well real soon. Nose kisses and hugs

Smudge, seriously now, why do you have to wear that? Whiplash, from hiding under a desk? What - did you struggle with the biped for a space and you won?
