tornado tuesday

well, some of you may haf seen onna talking picture box that the southwest corner of missouri, where we lives, gots pounded wif tornadoes last night. yup. one storm after anofur came roaring through about efurry 45 minutes until we losted count (mom: i think there were six before it was all done, and maybe one more around 3 am, when the sirens started up again), but thank bast, we is still here. our block don't seem to haf got much damage from the winds that yowled all night (along wif those turrible noisy sirens), but we dunno much more than we can see out the windows right now. our talking picture box is blank this morning an' power is iffy--we is hopin' to get this posted before it goes "poof" again.

mom & dad herded us all into one tiny room inna middle of the house last night around 6:30--even though we clung like limpets to the hiding places we had already selected around the house!!--an' we hadda stay there ALL NIGHT!!! alla us, woofies an' kitties!! we hadda share xing's ONE litter box!! now, that's cruel an' unusual punishment, an' we hadn't none of us done nuffin' wrong!! they SAID it was for our protection, but it seemed pretty odd to us. we was scared, an' we din't know why!

it's pretty calm outside now, an' we fink the sun might show her face a little later . . . mom's gotta get to the day-hunting place now, an' see if the building is still there. we hope not--then she could come back an' cuddle us for a LONG while! she's muttering something about who do we think buys the food an' litter. . . well, daddy does, don't he? his day-hunting place is fine!
(note: mom called an' said hers is ok.)

anyway, we's all here togefur, an' that's what counts!!

That is very, very scary! When we get weather like that here, mommy makes us AND the doggies go with her to the basement. It is cold and dark down there, and the doggies WON'T be still, but she tells us it is to keep us all safe and she would never let anything bad happen to us. Thank goodness for mommies.

I am so glad that you are all safe!

That sounds very, very scairty! I am glad you are all safe. We get hurricanes here, but at least we have plenty of time to prepare for those.

We're very glad that you are all safe and that your Momma and Daddy made you go into the inner room, although you didn't like it. It was for your own good.

Whoa - how scary! We're so glad you're all okay! Hey - just wondering...while your people were herding all of you into one room, why didn't they bring in the rest of your litter boxes? I sure hope they thought to bring in the Temptations and nip! Anyway, you don't wanna mess with those tornados. Our Lady saw something on TV and found out that a tornado can pick up YOUR WHOLE ENTIRE HOUSE! Then it spins it around and drops it in an unnecessarily colorful foreign place where a bunch of really short people won't stop singing in really squeaky voices. Apparently it's very annoying and makes you wanna leave and go somewhere where everything is green and there's a giant talking head that wants you to kill witches. Seriously. Watch out for those tornados!
love,
Midnight
