Size Doesn’t Matter Around Here

I woke up this morning to an epic battle being waged in my livingroom between the forces of light (the dogs) and the forces of dark (the cats). For the record, I do not like waking to the sounds of crashing lamps and vicious snarling.

I walked in just in time to see Piper, the tiny, stunted calico cat, swipe the sensitive nose of Sheba, the pitt bull mix. Sheba ran away crying.

Piper the midget cat – 1

Sheba the pitt bull – -2 (Piper made her cry like a poodle. 😦 )

And as quickly as it had broken out, the conflict was over. Piper groomed herself victoriously, and Sheba huddled in my lap, her ego smarting more than her nose.


Piper showed Sheba just who really runs things around here....

Also, I’d like you to note the pink sheet over the window on the door. I have that up because the last epic battle that broke out somehow ended up destroying my blinds. In the course of this war, we’ve lost a brand new Samsung Smart tv I’d only had for a week, various articles of clothing,  Bekkie’s television, a standing lamp, my favorite brown purse, a couple of their food dishes, a laundry basket, and my livingroom curtain rod.

I’m animal-ed out around here.

  1. I had a cat in High School that was Queen of the land. Every dog was afraid of her. We had a watch cat instead of dog. It was funny to watch her put those dogs in their place. It was outside though. So, we didn’t lose anything.

  2. BTW, I have two standard poodles and our cat refused to enter the backyard or house when they were around because poodles can be bad-ass scary, especially as a pack. We eventually got our cat a new home where no dogs could reach him. When we just had the dog, the cat could deal with him. Two, the tables turned, and he was no longer a happy camper. Poor guy. Wish I was better at training the beasts, but I hadn’t the time or energy; besides, we were allergic to cats. I am glad that your cat has the upper hand (claw). Good for her.

  3. Hey there, I found you via the NaBloPoMo blogroll.

    Piper is super cute! I love calico cats. I love calling them calico cats because in Australia we call them tortoiseshell which is just plain weird. Tortoise shells are not this colour! 🙂

    As part of NaBloPoMo I try to comment on as many participating blogs as I can, and I some of the add participating blogs to my feed reader.

    So I’m just dropping by to let you know I’ve added your blog to my feedreader, I’m reading you loud and clear, I have a link up going at my place so my readers can find participating blogs which you are more than welcome to add your blog link to.

    Looking forward to seeing your posts, and you’ll likely see me drop by again during November.

    Happy NaBloPoMo to you!


  4. Hi my friend,
    Interesting post when I first started blogging I made sure all comments were controlled by me as my past life was an information technology project manager. I understood how people can hide behind the p.c., smart phones and attack. Jan of 2014 I started my new business and fb is an important part of advertisement. Sadly you cant control what others say until after they attack you I really hate this about fb.

    Keep following Jesus, keep being true to yourself as you just like me are a survivor of this little thing called life. You are helping people find the light of Jesus Christ and say goodbye to the lies of Satin. GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged! Melody
