Sam In Space



Sam In Space

I do look rather smashing in this fancy suit...but this seems a little HARSH as punishment!

Well, if Mom has her way (and she most often does), this could be me any day now….that is if she decides to call NASA to see if there’s an opening for another space dude.                                                                                

OK – let me back up a bit…….this all started YESTERDAY when my parents disappeared around 1PM and didn’t come back home until around 7PM.  They left me here all by myself for that whole long time.  Off they went to see a play then out to dinner.  What did poor little Sam do?  Sat and looked out the windows waiting – longing for his parents to return!  Sniff.  There’s only so much I can do to keep myself occupied with no humans around you know!

I gave them the cold shoulder when they finally got home.  So there!

But, what pushed Mom over the edge and brought on this space cat thing is that beginning at around midnight – after my parents were sleeping away peacefully – I began my assault.  Commando cat…….I hopped up on their bed and meowed nice and loud.  They woke up (tee hee) and gave me pets and snuggles and I settled down for about five minutes between them…..waited for things to get quiet then hopped down and left the room.  I did the same thing about every thirty minutes ALL NIGHT LONG.  Yep – I sure did.  Around 2AM Mom decided to just plain get up and give me some fresh food, check my litter box, adjust my tissue and toy pile for me then she went back to bed thinking MAYBE I’d settle down. 


I changed my tactics a bit after that.  I’d go upstairs and go in their room – go under the bed and begin meowing…….To his credit OLD DAD slept right through everything after around 1AM but good old Mom sure didn’t.  She was up/down/up/down/up/down all night long!  The last time I woke her she got up and shoo’d me out into the hallway and closed the bedroom door.  That was around 4AM.  But at 5AM which is when she ALWAYS gets up anyway, I was back and howling at the closed door.  She got up.  She’s been grumpy ever since.  Even coffee didn’t help.  She looks like she was run over by a truck…..kinda rough around the edges you might say.

So – maybe you think her idea to send me into space isn’t a bad one huh?  Perhaps I pushed the envelope a bit too much………maybe I should let her have a nice long nap today……..I’ll think about it……seriously…..because I’m just not sure being a space cat is right for me.  What if they don’t load enough treats into my spacesuit before tossing me out of the spaceship? 

Sammy – In trouble today I’m afraid!!!!

  1. Oh, Sammy. What a naughty boy you were! I am hoping that a nice long nap will help your mom feel better today, but if I were you, I would lay low for a while…seems safer that way! I don’t think you would like space travel!
    Just in case, I am sending my hugs to your mom today…I think she needs them and maybe you need to think about what you can do for her to get back on her good side.
    Hugs for Pam…Linda


    • Hi Miss Linda! I told Mom that you thought maybe I’d been a bit BAD and she said “tell Miss Linda you were more than a BIT bad!!”…….but I’m sure once she settles down on her recliner and I hop up on her lap and purr she’ll be forgiving me for being a little devil last night. Space would be a bit lonely – and if I get lonely when my parents go out for a few hours just IMAGINE how I’d feel out in space!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Kitty Hugs Sammy
      p.s. Thanks Linda – I needed those hugs!!! Pam


  2. Aw, Sammy. What was going on with you last night???? Was somethng bothering you? Maybe it’s the time change…
    You and I should have switched places: Motor Man and Motor Mommy kept ME awake most of the night!
    I sure hope you are extra nice to your Mom today…..
    Love, Sundae


    • Hi Sundae….I am going to be extra good today. I guess I got a little carried away last night but I just wanted some company. Since my parents refused to get out of bed and play with me, I just bugged them all night. Can I just say “the devil made me do it” ???? HAHAHAHAHA

      Have a super day…………I promise to be GOOD.
      Love, Sammy


    • Hi Nerissa! We were just reading about your attempt to find that hour your peeps said they had lost. You sure tried to find it for them – but then to hear that they KNEW it was coming back all on its own later this year????? You’d think they would have saved you all that work!!! Humans….hard to figure ’em out huh?



    • Hey that’s way cool Pedro! So you like to rattle the human’s cage once in a while too huh? I think it’s just our way of keeping them on their toes – alert – ready for the unexpected – EXHAUSTED…just the way we like them. Nice and tame.

      Wicked? No….our way of saying “WE LOVE YOU!” – right Pedro? Tee Hee

      Your BFC Sam


    • Oh I know Cody….I was a BAAAAAAAD boy last night. I’m going to make up for it this afternoon though. I’m sure Mom will be falling asleep any minute in her chair and I’m going to keep her company!! Then tonight I’ll be on my very bestest behavior (but I’m thinking I got my MESSAGE across about leaving me alone – don’t you think??).

      Kitty Hugs and Watching the Driveway…..


  3. Oops! I think all that time sitting and staring out the window by yourself was not a good thing for you to do, Sammy! Idle paws are the devil’s workshop! You have some great parents, I hope you know, since they didn’t launch you into outer space at 4:00 this morning!


    • You’re right Miss Trish….I think I was mighty lucky to escape the spaceship considering what a pain in the rear I was last night. I’ve been EXTRA good all day today though and have promised (kitty’s honor) NOT to bug my parents tonight. I know I’m lucky aren’t I ???

  4. Dear Sammy,
    Me is going to has to send yous a Cat From Hell badge if yous keeps that up! Yous right up with me! Me did that last night too!
    BTW – Mommy put Mr Chirpy in a bag with some catnip (so he marinates on his journey) and then into a envelope and Daddy mailed it! Yous should be getting your own Mr Chirpy soon!
    PS Me put some special stuff in the envelope too!


    • Hi Nellie!! Oh boy – I can hardly WAIT to see what you guys sent along with Mr. Chirpy. Marinated chicken – YUM. You’re so sweet and please give your Mommy a BIG hug from me will you???? So you get in trouble too once in a while huh? Well, guess what – last night I was a very good boy and I stayed out of my parents bedroom so they could get lots of catching up sleep. They’re much happier this morning and so am I. It’s a “win/win” I suppose. I wouldn’t mind having a Cat From Hell badge anyway…..even though I’m being good today…..once in a while I just can’t help myself and I get “up to something” – know what I mean????? Tee Hee

      Kitty Hugs (to all!)


  5. Oh silly Sam!! When my Chun-Chun was acting just the same way, the first year and a half I had him, I never thought of sending him to space even though I was pretty sure that he was beamed down to Earth by the aliens. I would feed him to quiet him but it only worked temporarily, and when I played extra hard with him before bedtime to tire him out, it only got him even more excited! I finally cured him of his nocturnalism when I got him a baby sprocket. After that, he was grateful for any quiet moment he could get! Maybe you need a baby sprocket too?


    • Oh I would LOVE LOVE LOVE a baby sprocket – especially if he looked JUST LIKE Chun’s baby sprocket…..LOL Speaking of the guys, do they wear their berets in the warmer weather or do they switch to something lighter – – like straw hats? I need to know these things. I’ve learned a lot from them about the fine art of chapeau wearing.



I wanna know what YOU've got to say!!
