Introoder in the Garden!

I was out in the garden late the other night and suddenly mum heard yowling and swearing so she ran out with the torch. She saw me on the hedge puffed up to more than ten times my usual size, then she saw the introoder inside our purrison fence. It was shadowy and the torch was a bit dim so she isn't sure whether it was a fox or a floofy dark brown cat. Dad said it was more likely a cat because it would be harder for a fox to get over the fence. Mum yelled and it ran off under the bushes. I went to chase it but she yelled louder and told me to go indoors. After a while my fur went back down and I had some supper, but my tail refused to de-floof.

Mum's note: The fence is eight feet high and not easy for the boys to climb over as the horizontal timbers are on the outside so they can't get a foot hold to get over. However that makes it easier for cats on the outside to get in although that has only happened twice as far as we know.

The Random Felines are having a commentathon so please go and leave a comment on their blog.

That is one fat tail, Flynn! I would like to have seen how big the rest of you floofed up! Although it is probably just as well that you did not have to chase after that intruder.

Princess Jasmine said...

Well done for scaring the introoder away. We had an introoder in our garden. I never saw what it was, just saw the big paw prints in the snow. Simba saw it and said it was big and hairy and dribbly! Good job I stay indoors at the moment xx

michico*Adan said...

Oah I just love that floofy tail~!!!!

Kea said...

Oh, Flynn, good job on introoder patrol! We can see how a cat could get in -- not so easy for the poor thing to get out, though!

We just love your poofy, bottle-brush tail!

Kari said...

Wow! That's a big tail! When you have had other feline intruders, did you fluff up to such a grand size? Maybe it was a an opossum. And in your fenced area too! Is there a footprint? Thank goodness your mum was there. We don't want you to be too brave! Love you lots

Wow that is really scary Flynn. Glad Mom got rid of that guy and that you didn't have to fight him off. We sure don't want you hurt. That silly tail is still in fight mode. Take care.

Hannah and Lucy said...

What a magnificent floofy tail Flynn - we think if the intruder had seen it he would have been back over the high fence in an instant and running like mad to get away.
You deserved your supper and hope you got seconds too.

The Island Cats said...

MEOWZA!!!!!!!!!!!! Sammy applauds you as one mighty fine watch cat!!!!!!! Sammy is our watch cat also.

Since moving, we have two kitties that appear on our roof looking down on our balcony.......they have both found a way down on our balcony and when confronted by them, Sammy has puffed up like a blow fish and thrown a hissy fit and chased them both off again....he's our watch cat!!!!!

Love to both of you and your 'rents.

Wow! Your tail really did get big, Flynn! It looks like a raccoon tail, there! It must have been some big introoder for you to puff yourself up like that!

Good thing your Mom was around to shoo it off.
