The Tale of a Tail on Tuesday.

Flynn: Do you see how my tail and back is all poofed up? We were taking mum for a walk and she was in one field with Eric and I was walking up to the next one. They were coming to catch up with me because she doesn't like us going off on our own. When she came around the corner she saw I was stalking something. Then she saw it! A BLACK INTROODER CAT!!! She called for me to come back because we never see other kitties close up and she didn't know what I would do, but I was gone! I chased him up the field, over the hedge and up the next field. Mum was screaming at me to come back by then because there is an old disused gate that leads into our country lane and she was scared I would run out and a car would come along. I chased the introoder all the way to the gate. Mum doesn't know if I went out in the road or not and I'm not telling.

When I was sure he had gone, I went back to tell mum all about it.

Then I told Eric what had happened. This was what we were whispering about on Wordless Wednesday.

Eric said he would check that the introoder hadn't come back but I told him I was sure he wouldn't be back in a hurry.

Eric said he would check anyway and he put his hackles up so he would look fierce.

While he was gone I rested on some stones to get my breath back.

I saw Eric on his favourite lookout post on the hedge. He said that he could smell introoder there and I told him that was where I chased him over the hedge into the next field. We decided then that it was safe to take mum back home to get our supper.

We want to thank everyone who has commented on this post. We know they aren't showing but we have seen them all by email notification. It appears to be a Blogger glitch as we know other blogs are having the same problem. Hopefully Blogger will put the comments where they belong.

Wow, Flynn! What an adventure! We're awfully glad you're safe--and good for you for chasing off the introoder. But no wonder your mum was yelling at you; ours would have been too. Whew!

ABBY said...

Your family is furry lucky to have you to keep them safe from the introoder kitty. We also have a black introoder kitty. Mom is trying to find it's owner. She might trap him/her for vetting on the 24th of this month.

you two are the best guardcats, even though flying away like that might not have been too prudent, ahem... let us know of the introoder returns!

Derby, Ducky said...

YOu can scare off all the intruder kitties you want, just don't run in the road and get hit by a car.

TK and Squashies said...

You both are very brave to protect your mum from the introoder! Just when we thinks your mancat-level can not go any higher you does something makes it off-the-charts.

Laila and Minchie said...

Sparkle said...

You did a GREAT job of getting rid of that intruder, Flynn! I'm impressed.

Nico, Simon and JayJay said...

Oh Flynny - don't you & Eric go chasing off intruders like that! Something awful could happen! You had our Mom scared while she was reading your blog 'cause she didn't want to read that you got into a fight with that cat - or worse, brushed paths with one of those metal monsters!! Just stick close to your Mum from now on!!

Have a happy day - just play it safe, ok??

You two are great at protecting your property! We can understand why you were all poofed up!

You two did a great job patrolling and protecting your Mom from ebil introoders.

The Island Cats said...

Good job, Flynn!! You sure showed introoder cat!! We don't think he will be coming back anytime soon!

Madi and Mom said...

Flynn thank you for looking after Mum like a lion... sounds like you gave her a great big scare running off though. I bet you didn't go into the road because you are a very smart kitty. You and Eric might need to take turns playing sentry for Mum. YOu have a very handsome fluffy tail!!!

Hannah and Lucy said...

You were very brave to chase that black intruder off your field - it's a good job he wasn't setting you up for a good pawy cuffing from his accomplices.
Bet Eric and your mum were very proud of you.

SuziQCat said...

What a brave kitty to run after the introoder like that! I believe I would have hidden behind my mom!

Simba said...

You are both very brave and good kitties to defend your area against intruder cats. Lt the word spread about not to enter your property!!!
BUT, don't go too far away from home while you are on the chase. Mom's get gray hairs worrying about lost and hurt kitties.

Pierro said...

WOW Flynn, your tail is pawsome Puffy
and it looks quite manly and brave for sure

bonks to both of you

The Furry Bambinos said...

Well done, both of you!

Debra Taylor said...

Hey that's great that the two of you mostly stay on the walk with your mom.

Keep up the great work in the field!

For all the folks (I consider cats and dogs as persons) reading this, my blog has stories and information helpful for cat helpers everywhere.

I pray that all the cat blogosphere kitties will remain well!

The Furry Kids said...

Wow! That was an adventure for sure. We're glad you chased that guy away - your mum and dad are super lucky to have such brave mancats looking out for them. But maybe you shouldn't go by the road any more. Just a thought. ;)

Angus Mhor said...

Wow, guys! You both look really fierce! Good on ya, mates! I'll bet that introoder cat won't even THINK about comin' back into your fields again..not with you two on patrol!
