"Angelina, go downstairs and check the mail. I'm expecting some bills."
"Yes, Mama. Won't be long."
"Angelina, don't slam the door."
"It wasn't me Mama. It was the wind."
After five minutes or so...
"Mama, I can't get 'to' the mail."
"What do you mean by you can't get 'to' the mail?"
"It's too high, Mama. I can't reach it."
"Don't lie, sweetheart. It's within your reach."
"I used to. But I can't anymore."
"Well, you should see it for yourself."
"I will. You come with me too."
Meanwhile, on ground level....
"What the #@%&*!!!"
"Mama, don't swear."
"Oh, sorry sweetheart. It will be a while before I'll ask you to check the mail again."
"But I can climb to the brown box, Mama."
"Nope. This is a construction site now. Dangerous for you."

Someone knocked down the mailboxes at our building over the weekend.

Cat..ask Mama to give you a good hug..she was spewing lava at you!
Kesian you..purr

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Paula,
We don't know who did it. We even went round to check every resident's cars. None seem dented. Must have been the work of some hoons or drunkards. Oh well.... purrr....meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Yummy Mummy,
Yeah...that wasn't like her at all...spewing lava and all. Some humans must have been bugging her. purrr...meow!

Pi Bani said...

It wasn't the work of any drunk cats, was it?

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Pi,
Me thinks it was the result of Angelina's suitors fighting at the front yard. Imagine the headline: Cats fight over female, mailboxes ruined. har har har *evil laughs* Brad

Aunty Pi, don't listen to him. He's evil... purrr...meow! Angelina

Cheqna said...

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Cheqna! You're back! That was bad of my Mama...swearing and all. Can you talk to her? Seems so stressed nowadays. purrrr....meow!

kay_leeda said...

Mama knows how to swear, Angie? She must be so, so upset. Hope your Mama's bills don't go missing. Or else we may hear her swearing from my kadok garden!!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Kay,
I'm sure Mama's swear vocabulary is humongous. She's been practising restrain though. Did I hear kadok? Hmmmm....otak-otak.... purrr....meow!

Lee said...

Hi Cat, ha ha, love your humour and your Crocodile Dundee language.
Whats the construction? Building a post office?
Bring a stoll next time, ha ha.
G'day and don't brake a leg, Lee.

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Uncle Lee,
So far, nobody has broken any leg. Mama has forbidden me from going there until they fix the mailboxes. In the meantime, don't send me any love letters, OK? purrr...meow!

Aimy Bazura Mohamed said...

OMG! I didn't imagine that when ur Mama text-ed me to inform "our peti surat hancur!"

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Aimy,
And someone else thought it's our email inbox! hahahaha... purrr...meow!

Naz in Norway said...

Here a swear, there a swear,
Everywhere oso swear swear!
Ask your mom to start a farm,
*big hugs to all*

word veri ni nak kena dah...ZALIM!!!!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

A cat farm Aunty Naz? And a meow meow there, meow meow here. Old McMama had a farm...E.I.E.I.O... purrrr....meow!

tireless mom said...

Obey your momma ok otherwise I will only see you full of debris. If you are unlucky you may end of in the pet hospital, hope not ... or I will miss you. Meowwwww!

Kak Teh said...

CIS, dont let my tabby hear you. While typing this, I had to close Tabby's and snowbell's ears.

~CovertOperations78~ said...

OMG! I am glad no one was hurt! Your mama must be so relieved you are all okay! Sometimes swear words are just our way of expressing surprise or shock... not necessarily anger. Hope the mailbox wall has been repaired by now.

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Yatt,
I've been obedient and I've been a good girl. She's angry about something else and I'm still trying to figure it out. If anything, can I seek shelter with you? purrrrrlease? *winks* purrr....meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Mother of Tabby,
Shhhh....Mama's repented, I think. She swears she'll not swear again. Ooops...what did I just say? Hugs to Tabby and Snowbell. purrr...meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Hmmmm...Mama hasn't taught us the differences in swear language. Not that we hear that often from her. This is a very very rare occasion. Oh, the mailbox thingy is still like that, hasn't been repaired. Though the management said: Soon. purrr...meow!
