Welcome home present?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Well, I made it! Three days on the road, through bits of France, Belgium, Holland, Germany (a lot of it!), Austria, Slovenia and Croatia before hitting Bosnia. All fairly uneventful, except for not knowing that Belgian motorways are not like French ones with fuel at reasonable distances, and I had to leave the motorway and then got lost in a Flemish speaking area in the dark with my petrol light flashing before I found a station. After that I filled up when the tank was half empty. The weather threw everything it could at me, rain, sleet, snow, fog and blinding sun, but the jeep behaved beautifully. Then the real drama happened when I got home. My flatmates had let the cats out today and Persil and Napoleon were still out when I arrived. They both ran up to the steps when they heard me but would not come in. So I half unloaded, decided to have a cup of tea before finishing, and hoped that they would come in the cat door when they realised I was inside. That in fact happened, so I made sure they were locked in and went to get the rest of my stuff. This is what met me -



One or both (it was a lot for one) of the cats had left a present right on the bonnet of the jeep! Has anyone ever heard of such a thing? Peeing in beds, messing the bathroom floor, but on my NEW CAR? And did they know it was mine, or did the warm metal attract them? Why would they do that? When I got upstairs the Chief Suspect (Napoleon) had decided he was really satisfied with life:



Butter would not melt in his mouth. And I brought them back so many presents and lots of good food!

I'm glad you made it safely, Jenny! I think the "present" was payback for having left them! That picture of Napoleon is great - I can't believe how big he's gotten.

hahaha.. that's hilarious! I've never heard of that kind of kitty revenge before. Cats are amazing animals... you'd think they'd planned that before you arrived!

Wonderful pic!

I agree with Trisha's theory on the present!

hahaha, if that's an outcry against Jeeps I don't know what is, that's great!

Maybe they were mad at the Jeep for taking you away, so they pooped on it to teach it a lesson?? haha

So glad to see that you made it home safe and sound after your long drive. What a welcome home present - that was so funny. Either the last poster was right and they were mad at the jeep for taking your away or they decided to personalise the jeep and make sure that everyone knew this was their new car . Either way, as you were driving through all those countries, imagining the welcome you would get, I bet you never imagined that one

That picture of Napoleon is brilliant - he definitely looks far too relaxed; I'd say he's trying to pretend too much that it couldn't possibly be him.

well you know, in winter, you don't wanna poop in a cold litterbox and get your feet cold I'm sorry, that's too funny!! I love the way Napoleon is lying there all smug I think you caught your cat red-pawed!

So pleased to hear you made it back safe and sound! It seems like you had a bit of an adventure there too!!

What a welcome home though!

That is a fantastic picture of Napoleon! He certainly looks very pleased with himself!

I love this pic, Jenny! The way he has his back legs hanging over the edge! As for the mess on the jeep, we've had cats do that to anything new we brought home. Sort of making it smell like it belongs? Or maybe they didn't like the color.

Glad to read you made it home safely. I've had plenty of cats sit on the hood (bonnet) of the truck when it was still warm but no surprises!! I can't believe how big napolean is!!!
