I have a thing or two to pass on about Banshee. She's not Miss Perfect like she makes herself out to be.

The PM had just taken the wee-est one out of the bath and was combing her hair when Banshee strolled in and jumped on the side of the tub. The water was still in the tub and the PM explained that to her and even splashed around some of it to prove it. Banshee looked at the splashes then jumped right in. Yes, jumped in on purpose!!!! Not an accidental slip like me. She jumped right out though but not in a crazy stressed out manner. She calmly walked out leaving a trail of water behind her, went to the window ledge, jumped up and spend about an hour washing.

The PM wanted to get a photo but the Music Man had taken the camera as he was going to see some bands play. Too bad, I would have made a poster out of it. I wonder if Banshee ever went fishing in a brook when she was feral?

Banshee also has a bad habit of stealing licks from the PM's coffee! The PM has to drink fast and watch her like a hawk. I don't think she needs all that caffeine!

Now I want to introduce you to a friend of mine. She hangs out by my bed on the window ledge.



She's a penguin though it is hard to tell as Goldie chewed off half of her beak.



I think of her as a kindred spirit as I still have a scarred nose where Banshee scratched me.



The PM put a ribbon around her neck at Christmas and left it on as it raised her self esteem. Maybe I need a ribbon two.

Really? She jumped in on purpose??? Maybe she has a little Turkish Van in her background.
I think your friend is very nice.

We knew Banshee was a little bit silly, but that takes it to a whole new level! Banshee in a bath, hahaha.

Shade, your friend looks like a lovely penguin friend.

Tuck said...

Why would Banshee do such a thing? That gives me nightmares just thinking about it!!!

The Island Cats said...

Banshee sure lives up to her name, doesn't she??!?

Your Pals,

Banshee sure is a character. We wish we could have seen that! I'm guessing that you would look fabulous in a ribbon.

Hi Shade. It's nice to hear from you...those other two cats seem to get to do most of the talking. Too bad the PM didn't have the camera to catch a picture of Banshee in the tub! It'll be interesting to see if she does that again. Your friend the penguin looks very nice...maybe your Meowmy could get you a pretty ribbon to raise your self esteem, too?

Tom Cat said...

Maybe when she saw PM splashes in the water she thought it was fishies?

The Creek Cats said...

Banshee sounds like a lot of fun!

Thank you for the purrs for Cal and Maya!

Oh my goodness, Banshee jumped in on purpose! Wow, you are so brave! We wish there were pictures!

Cat with a garden said...

Shade, it is lovely to see you! That was quite something you had to tell us. Banshee is quite a daredevil, eh? Like Chilli...
You would look lovely with a big girly bow but we're sure it wouldn't last for long.
Purrs, Siena & Chilli

Cliff and Olivia said...

What a nice friend you got there. Looks calm and quiet.

Banshee must be crazy, but it's still a shame that the camera was away. Maybe you should get your humans to get a special cat camera just for you? (Catmera? Catera?)

Mickey,Georgia , Tillie said...

Banshee is very, very funny to willingly jump into water! Maybe someday you can get a photo!

Eric and Flynn said...

Haha Banshee is funny.
Your penguin friend looks very nice.

Spooky said...

Hmmm...I think Banshee is crazy...and I don't think you need a ribbon to raise your self-esteem, Shade. I think you're a very handsome cat, and not at all crazy like you-know-who.

Well, around our house, Trixie is definitely the one who would jump in the bath full of water!! She loves to play in the tub when it's empty and we think she'll try anything once - or several times!! We're impressed with all your snow up there. Ours only lasted about a day, but it was awesome!!!
:o) Thomas, Phoebe and Trixie

Oh you all make us happy with your posts. You are the best medicine.

Thanks for your kind comments about Daddy and our situation. You are great friends and you mean the world to us.

Banshee sounds a little bit naughty, but funny. Penguin looks like a good friend to have around, especially for face rubs!

VampyVictor said...

HAHH I loves coffee too Banshee! Momma and Dadda re VERY careful with it around me.. they says I jones for it...I do not know about that, but I do know that it is very fun when they do not clean the machine properly to stick my head under and get lickites :))
