Butter Bean ... A true story

ButterBean here to tell you a story ....

I am a BIG FAT cat ... I have no problems telling you that, admitting that and being ok with that. So in saying that I am a BIG FATty ... I will also say that generally I do not like to go outside. You see there are things outside that could make me scared and thus cause me to need to run which would in turn disturb the fatness of my bellah and make it wiggle and the fat wiggling is not one of the things I call fun. Also, I DO NOT like to go potty outside ... something about the wind blowing across my bum when I am doing my business makes me uneasy ... so I do perfer the litterbox. And so goes the story ...

Momy lets Lucky and Moosie out some when she is home. Actually Lucky cries like a little girl to go out until Momy gets tired of hearing him and opens the door. Moosie likes to go but sometimes he dosnt. I should insert here that neither Moose or Lucky have front claws yet they are not scairt of the outsdoors and Moose has even gone potty out there and was PROUD of it ... BAH!

I use to go out quite a bit but the last few years I really just have not felt the need to. Until Saturday ... Momy let out the usuals, Melon, Mama and Meet, Scotch was already out and Lucky and Moose wanted to go play too, since it was cool in the morning and the afternoons here have been horrible. Its been 90 or above for the past several weeks YUCK! Anyway, Saturday I decided that maybe I wanted to venture out as well. Momy said ok ... by 1130 it was 95 degrees so all us kitties headed for the house and the cool where we napped for the rest of the day.

Sunday morning Momy was up early, everyone went out again and again I wanted to go so Momy let me since I had been a good boy on Saturday. Momy was up early to pick beans and pick beans she did. Then she sat on the back porch breaking bean when she saw me Bean running as fast as my short little legs could haul my 25 pounds through the field. All she could do was laugh. Shes still not sure what was after me or if I had accidently touched the electric fence and Im not telling. That was at 10 Sunday morning..... everyone went in my 12 but me .. ha ha ha .... it was 100 degrees Sunday here in Virginia ... Momy sat outside under the tree all day calling for me, looking for me, yelling for me ... looking and hunting and not finding.

As the sun started to go down and the air started to cool some Momy was still outside in her chair under the tree calling for me. What she didnt know was that I could see her and hear her and knowing she was close made me not so scairt. Finally at 10 that night I needed some lovin so I started rubbing on the underpinning of the building and she heard 'tink, tink, tink,' and went to investigate only to find lil ol' me ... she ran to get my foods but I wouldent come out so she went and got some stinky goodness and I just could not resist.... however I did not eat any of it I just like to sniff it.

SO Momy picked me up and carried me in the house. I scratched her just a little on her hand cause Im a big boy and she has a hard time carrying me so she hurted me but didnt mean to ... she was mad, glad and upset all at the same time .... and something about how I will never go out again .. or at least not in the next few years ... yeah whateva ma ...

I am not entirely myself yet, been drinking lotsa water ... and laying around


  1. O dear Butterbean, I duznt think that wuz such a good thing you did to your mama

  2. Oh, Bean, you certainly picked a hot day to go out in...no wonder you are drinking a lot...your little paws sweated a lot we bet!

  3. Oh Butterbean, you really should have come in sooner. Our humans hearts just don't have what it takes to put up with those kind of antics, they are very frail you know.

    Load up on your water and get lots of rest....that was a hot day for you to be out!

  4. You prolly have heat stroke after doing that running! You need lots of love and affection and expensive toys and noms. xoxo

  5. Glad the story had a happy ending :)

  6. Butterbean
    We are glad the story had a good ending...we were getting kinda worried!


  7. You had quite an adventure but you scared your Momma!

  8. Didn't woo learn from Rocky?


  9. We are glad you are back inside now and safe and sound. Once the end of Eric's tail touched the electric fence and he was scared for a couple of months. Whenever he was outdoors, he kept looking up at the sky cuz he didn't know what had attacked him.Mum always turns it off if we are outdoors ever since then.

  10. ButterBean you must have given your mother so much stress that day! We think it would be a good idea for you to stay in from now on - whatever was out there must have been very scary for you to hide for so long in the heat. We are so glad you are Ok!!

  11. Butterbean, you scared your mom badly. Stay in, please, hon!! You'll feel better and so will she!
