Splashed! But not blogged!

Bloggie friends!

I've been sprayed with puddle water by speeding cars all the way from the station to home while I walked in the cold, rain, wind and darkness so forgive me as I leave you with Charlie while I pour myself something suitably... erm.. medicinal.

Charlie says: I will not look.





Charlie says: Darn.

Special hugs to lovely Trish of Katnip Lounge and beautiful Carol of Ginger Jasper. Trish will be having her surgery on Tuesday, Carol - Wednesday. Charlie and I are sending you both waves of love and best wishes for speedy and safe recoveries!!

Have a blessedly dry day today everyone!

Yikes! Not nice. Sometimes I think the motorists deliberately aim for the puddles, just for a good old giggle...

ABBY said...

We will keep both Mom's in our purrs.

OH dear splashed...that is not good.
Charlie you did the right thing.

purrin

KarenMcG said...

Charlie, we caught you peeking!

But we won't tell.

Old Kitty we're so sorry you got caught in the rain...and by puddle water. That's no fun, especially when it's cold and dark. Bummer.

Brian said...

You know Charlie doesn't care how you look, wet or dry, he loves you. Yes, purrs to them both and all our New Zealand pals dealing with the awful earthquake too.

Tucker said...

Yuck. Sounds like you need that, er, medicine. Have a nice evening.

KarenG said...

I'm sorry you were splashed by speeding cars, glad it was on the way home not to work. Charlie does look concerned, doesn't he?

The Teacher's Pets said...

Oh no! A splashy, wet trip home can't be fun but at least you found your way to the computer afterwards!

Ann said...

Hope you poured yourself a very large something suitable medicinal. We are digging ourselves out of another snowstorm. 15inches since yesterday. I think I will pour myself a large medicinal something too! My best wishes to your friends.

You poor thing!!! Nothing worse in cold, raw weather! Enjoy some of that "medicine" for me too!!!

We also wish Trish and Carol speedy recoveries and will be thinking of them!!

xoxoxo

Theresa Milstein said...

Poor you getting soaked! I heard it was rainy near you today. I hope your medicine did the trick so your nice and relaxed.

Hope you have a dry Tuesday.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Visiting your blog is like a breath of fresh air and a blast of optimism, Kitty! I will be thinking about your friends.

Guinevere said...

Enjoy your, erm, medicine, and I hope the rain stops and you have nice weather! :)

Clarissa Draper said...

Well, I hope your friends surgery goes well. Let us now and now, go get dry and warm. Have a nice cuppa tea!

Deborah said...

I hate that when that happens. I had a very unhappy person at a meeting tonight and I came home and had a drink too, only for medicinal purposes only! LOL
xxoo
Deborah
PS. I'm heading over to your friends blogs now.

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

Oh, sorry to hear about the difficult day! Watch out for those puddles! Best wishes to your friends!

Medeia Sharif said...

I hate those wet days. Even when I avoid puddles, I get splashed by them.

The Chair Speaks said...

Charlie, please tell your mom that on rainy days, our human would bring the umbrella down to knee level in anticipation of any muddy splash when a car pass by. Well, rain is cleaner than those from muddy puddles. :)

Mr Puddy said...

Charlie ! Let's trash the house together : )

Reenie said...

Oh no... I hope the... umm... 'medicinal' remedy helped.

Ellie said...

Oh, no! Was it raining yesterday? LOL. I experienced something similar getting from work to my car. Not good.

Hope you have a dryer day tomorrow!

fairyhedgehog said...

Oh dear, that's not nice! I hope you're all dry and warm now.

Kea said...

Oh, I hate getting drenched by passing cars -- well, who likes it? So rude, IMO. You can tell they're not pedestrians, and so don't slow down at the "ponds" on the roads. Very aggravating! I hope your "medicinal" drink warmed you up in a hurry!

I'm sending up prayers, sending Light, to both Trish and Carol too.

Susan Fields said...

That sounds like a miserable walk home! I hope Charlie took proper care of you when you arrived.

The Monkeys said...

It sounds like today is a perfect day for some 'medicine'! Enjoy!

Simon Kewin said...

Yeesh, not good. I hope the, ahem, medicine helped!

Her highness, Samantha VĂ©rant said...

Awww, poor Charlie! It's been cold, windy and rainy here too! Bella (my cat) has been staying indoors.

Hannah and Lucy said...

Jenn - after your journey home in the rain and splashing puddles we hope you made your "medicine" a large dose!! It certainly was a filthy day yesterday.
Charlie - you were very thoughtful to look away while your mum was taking her "medicine".

Summer Ross said...

I'm sorry you had a watery day! I do hope it gets better.

Au and Target said...

eek, we hate being splashed!

Au is eating again and is trying out a new FIV wonder drug. paws crossed he'll get well soon.

Shannon O'Donnell said...

I have an award waiting for you, Kitty! :-)

Bossy Betty said...

I just love that spot on Charlie's back!

Have a dry day!

Tracy said...

Oh goodness Kitty...we desperately need the rain and I wouldn't complain if we got it but I do not like being splashed-my best way to sepnd a rainy day is on the courch with a good book wrapped in a blanket with a hot cup of tea or coffee...I hope you are enjoying some of that!

roxy said...

I've been splashed by passing cars a time or two, and I always feel a bit chagrined afterwards, as well as wet. Why does this situation make one feel like the recipient of an ill-conceived prank? Sorry about the puddles, Kitty. Have a hot drink and cuddle up with Charlie. Spring sunshine is coming soon!

Hart Johnson said...

URGH! Man, I HATE that! I walk to and from work and we have some spots that get deep puddles. I've definitely been drenched by stupid, inconsiderate, idiot drivers.

Talli Roland said...

On no! Hope you cuddle up warm and cozy. I didn't even know it was raining outside! Duh.

The Golden Eagle said...

That doesn't sound fun. :( Hope you got warm and cozy once you could!

soggibottom said...

Please give your friends our very best wishes too.
I think Charlie really wants to play with that hamster on the wheel on your blog. He wants to love it.
Have something strong and get dry and warm. :-) x x x


Hey Charlie HAMSTER --->
lots of luv Frank de tabs from Soggibottom

Lynda Young said...

urgh...puddle water is horrible. I hope you enjoyed your "something medicinal"

notesfromnadir said...

Hope you're feeling loads better after being splashed like that in the dead of winter. You need a nice big cup of hot chocolate w/ extra whipped cream. Maybe Charlie will want some of that whipped cream.

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

I'm so sorry you had a rough walk home. I'm sure Charlie didn't mind you having a human drink to warm yourself up. :)

Life 101 said...

A good cat is like that :)

William Kendall said...

Oh, I hate when that happens... I always have a few choice bad words handy for just such an occasion.

Charlie's wondering why his staff keeps taking pictures of him without his authorization.
