My Hisser Got Stuck

People and fur people who like The Leader Otis,

It’s Thomas. Ummmm… Brother Oliver has put me in time out because he thought I was very rude to him earlier. I couldn’t help it though! My hisser got stuck! I tried to explain this to him, but he wasn’t having any of it.

Thomas chillin out

Brother Oliver put me in time out because my hisser got stuck.

See, what happened was, Leader Otis and I were out in his Outdoor Domain and that crazy Raccoon came walking by again. Leader Otis started churring at her, probably because He wanted to nuzzle her fluffy tail, but she scares the kitty crap out of me so I let out a loud hiss. The hiss startled the Raccoon, and she ran off behind the fence next door. Just as she disappeared, Brother Oliver came walking up behind me and sniffed my back. It startled me, and I reflexively hissed at him. Then, my hisser must have gotten stuck in the on position because I hissed at him three more times right in a row! I didn’t mean to! It just happened! After that, he put me in time out.

So here I sit in time out for something that wasn’t even my fault. To tell you the truth, it makes me kind of mad. So mad, in fact, that I could just hiss at Brother Oliver! Oh, I guess that probably wouldn’t be a good idea though considering how I ended up here in the first place…

  1. Poor Thomas….maybe you can take your case to Leader Otis to see about getting an early release πŸ™‚

  2. Not to worry Thomas, time out looks kind of fun! You can practice your poses.

  3. How embarrassing. Don’t worry, Time heals all hissers.

    the way I see it, if Oliver does not want to be hissed at, he should not sneak up on you from behind. He knows how sensitive you are.

  5. 2 cats

    Poor thomas, at least you getting to work on your posing while in time out.

  6. Poor Thomas. Oliver should be more careful about startling you.

  7. Poor Thomas doesn’t Oliver know that “Racoon induced hisser stick” is the most awkward of situations πŸ™‚

  8. We’re sure it was a temporary hisser problem, Thomas.

  9. You know I don’t think I have ever hissed…at least not since I was adopted by my mama. But I do growl sometimes. And I sure have had my share of time outs! But it is not all bad, Thomas. Great time to take a nap…and naps are always good.

  10. You’d think Brother Oliver would know that cats are creatures of reflex, being that he is one and all? Guess he just isn’t the most understanding type. Be patient with him, Thomas.

    By the way, Miss P has a report concerning the LFDU. About two hours ago, she heard some clinking and panting right up next to the patio screen where she was keeping watch. She didn’t hiss, but her tail puffed out and she begged me to go get Priestess Jen for backup and some catnip for courage. I didn’t consent. A few minutes later, Mama Human poked her head out the front door to see two humans reclaiming their lost collie. It must have strayed far, as there are no collies in our neighborhood. Whether or not it was a Long-Feared Dog, we don’t know. Miss P. insists that she heard it whisper, “At last [pant pant] I’ve reached the enemy’s stronghold. As soon as the re-enforcements come [pant pant] these cats will be mine!” but I think that was just the adrenaline talking.

  11. Paw you! Wow do other cats get stuck hissers? That could explain why they hiss at me when all I want to do is lick their nose!

    • Hmmmmm… I’m not sure if the hisser is actually stuck in that case, Basil. They might think that you want to do more than just lick their nose and they want to make sure you know they are not OK with that. πŸ˜‰

  12. Poor Thomas. My hisser gets stuck too. I hope your time out is over.
