Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Danger! Danger! Shopping bag warning from TKS!!


Aiieeee!!! Danger!! Danger!!! Who knew??  Certainly not Mom L or Dad P!!

We all know in my castle that all paper bags MUST have the paper handles cut so that NO KITTY can get hung up in those handles. I know you all know this, but just stick with me for the learning we all got just yesterday from none other than, you got it!!—the infamous TKS the extraordinaire “let it all hang out” cat!

Wow!! This is pretty cool!

So Dad P left about four grocery shopping, reusable bags, at the foot of our stairs. All folded neatly, no handles showing. And then Mom L came out of the kitchen about thirty minutes later to TKS IN A BAG!!

Whoa! I got this thing to stand up! Cool!!!

Yes, you got it. That bag was lying flat, no handles exposed. But the ever exploring TKS found a way to not only get that bag out of a pile of bags, but she also was able to paw it into standing upright!! Seriously!!

Amazing this thing is standing right up! Sweet!!

Mom L was busy in the kitchen and Dad P was in the garage. Then Mom L came around from the kitchen into the entry way and there was TKS!! IN THE BAG!!! (no pun intended)

Ok! You caught me!!

Mom L was horrified at the thought of what might have happened had TKS been frightened by her or Dad P or any kitty in my castle scaring TKS so that she might jump from that bag THROUGH a handle!!!

Ok!! Stop making this more than what it is—I just like this bag!!

And there you have it. TKS has perspective on what she was trying to do, which was have a bit of fun. However, Mom L and Dad P won’t ever leave another shopping bag with handles anywhere near where this kitty can get a paw on it.

And before anyone says this is comments—yes! My pawrents ALWAYS cut the bag handles. This grocery shopping bag was lying flat in a pile of four. But TKS managed to get it out, upright and take up residence.

Hope you are all having a marvelous Monday!! Got any shopping bag stories to share?? Leave a comment and a photo is even better!!

  3. But how do you carry the bag if the handles are cut??

    I learned to cut handles off of paper bags…and we don’t leave the others in the house. XX

  10. That’s so funny! Sage clearly wanted some bag fun! Honestly, nobody here has ever been compelled to use any of the reusable bags other than my human! Over here, they are folded and left out for a day at the most – usually they live in my human’s car.

  11. I once had my shy Tom running with a shopper in which he got caught. He was terrified.

  12. the cat in the bag is is must… and this one fits so perfectly, the color is fab with your furs!

Waving paw...HI!...what'd 'cha think...??
