How to get Dad to say bad words...

Niko:So, Mom was downstairs with me yesterday, while Dad was upstairs with Cloud. I was climbing around on the couch, and caught a claw in the couch. I must admit- I wasn't very manly- I started howling. And not just a "hello over here, need attention please" meow, but more like the "I'm being murdered!" meows that Texas would do when getting baths.
Well, Mom had never heard this type of meow from me, and was really startled. She came over, and it took her a minute to figure out the problem, and every time she tried to calm herself down and try to figure out where I was caught and help me, I howled again and scared her all over. So finally she couldn't deal with it anymore and started screaming Daddy's name...
Cloud:We were upstairs watching TV together when Mom started calling frantically for Dad. When Dad asked what was wrong Mom just kept screaming his name. And so Dad said some bad words.
Niko: And then he came down, Mom told him what happened, and he saved me! He saved me! And then he gave both me AND Mommy a big hug!
Cloud:We think Mom is a big scaredy cat. But she's kinda cool.

Our mom said she is familiar with that kinda meow and totally understands how it made your mom feel! Not a good feeling.

Unfortunately, I have to admit that I have done that kind of meow before when I got my claws stuck. I made a big "ReeeeeEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!" sound, increasing my volume and flailing to show my panic, but Ms. C SAVED me!

We have an award for you! Please stop by our blog to check it out.

Looks like someone needs to start getting his claws clipped!

That meow would have scared my mom, too.
