Trapped!

We haven't seen this strange piece of furniture is quite a while!  Mom Paula pulled it out last night and like fools, we decided to check it out.


We've read about this thing on the CB and it's called a PTU.  We've never quite figured out what that means, so the ever curious Truffle decided to investigate first.  
 Little sister, let me go first to see if this thing is safe.

 My turn! My turn!

Whose bright idea was it to close the door?

Mom Paula:  Don't worry!  Truffle and Brulee are fine!  I need to get a refill on their Revolution treatment and I have no idea how much they weigh.  I've tried the silly idea of stepping on the scale both with and without them in my arms and that just doesn't work.  Their vet told me today that he would weigh each of them at no charge if I wanted to bring them in.  I only have one carrier, so I wanted to see if both of them fit inside.  As you can see, it worked!  At least for a short period.  I hope they will both travel together peacefully in the car to the vet.  I need to get them in as soon as I'm off the road from traveling for my job.

Just wait!  Mom Paula has to go to sleep sometime!

Never trust the PTU!
No matter how cute, how innocent, how safe it may appear. I know.

Oh no, girls! Quick, run UTB! A car ride is imminent!

Oh dear, Miss Paula...I think Truffle is giving you the stink-eye!

Be good, girls, and let your Mama take you in to be weighed. It could be lots worse.

Years back I had two girl cats and they once got into the same carrier on a long car trip. For years and years they would go into one, and then one trip they had enough and got into a big fight until I got them out.

I bet you girls come up with a creative way to get back at your human!

Ooo... captive bootiful ladycats!! *swooping in and stealing away with PTU*

Don't go into the box girls - you may get a nasty surprise.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

I am amazed that one small carrier fits not only the two of you but both of your flowing, flauschie, floofalicious tails as well!

The Island Cats said...

Uh oh...girls...that box...when it comes out, it's not a good thing.

Marg said...

Oh you two look really mad. Too funny. Bet you don't get in there again for a little while. Gave our Mom a good laugh seeing you two both in the PTU. Have a great day.

The Whiskeratti said...

Some vets CHARGE to get a weight? That's insane.

Laila and Minchie said...

A little crowded in there! We have an extra PTU from when Mom Peggy had three kitties. If Mom Paula can figure out how to get it home, it's yours!

Nothing good ever comes from the PTU being around. Bet the vet is going to sneak in a shot or two while he is at it - never trust a vet either!

Brian said...

Oh you might not fall for that one again!

"The Boys" and Karen said...

What a nice looking carrier, and the "cargo" is even better to look at.

Lesson #1; curiosity will get you into a bit of trouble.

Hahaha! Lovely sweethearts!

Jenna and Sissy said...

We wouldn't trust the PTU ever! The human has separate ones for us. She worries the stress might cause a fight.

Mom Paula needs to train you to step on the scales for her!

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Those little sweethearts love each other, I doubt you'll have any problem with them in the same PTU for the ride to the vet!
I've seen many different meanings for PTU around the blogosphere.. Pet Transport Unit, Prisoner Transport Unit, Pet Torture Unit, Prisoner Torture Unit... I prefer Pet Transport Unit, MOL, but I bet the cats prefer NONE!

LP said...

Oh you two are just on an adventure! It won't hurt to get weighed and you will have lots of new folks fawning over you :)

the critters in the cottage xo

The Monkeys said...

You poor girls! I've seen an awful lot of a PTU these last few weeks and I don't like it either!

Thank you for your purrs, sweet girls! I think they are working.

You girls will probably not be fooled again!

Oh dear, not the PTU!
