“Miniscule hiss” Poor Sophie.
It’s good to have a firm ally to hide under.
Hiding under bureaus is something Sophie and Elvis have in common.♥
when my girls first got here, they went right behind my couch. luckily, I still had the pink, fuzzy kitty bed that was Nadia’s back there. they found it, smelled a momma kitty and quickly calmed down and went to sleep. they were home.
Interesting behaviour. Bring the new kitten from the RSPCA, and she starts exploring the house. Move the full grown cat to another house, and she hides behind the washing machine.
(This comment is a general observation. Any similarity to any particular cat in command of any particular person is purely coincidental.).
I love how cats can just go boneless and flatten themselves out to fit under furniture with very small openings. I thought nothing could be more adorable than Puck’s tiny hiss, but Sophie’s minuscule hiss is even better!
There! You see? The robber mice have just been keeping a low profile, but even they can’t resist MOVING DAY!
Besides, it’s almost inevitable that something good will be left unguarded long enough for . . . well, for it to go unaccountably missing.
(Not that a particularly strange disappearance such as that would be at all likely to have anything to do with the mice. I probably shouldn’t even have mentioned it in the same comment.)
Love the big smiles on the people, Lupin, Goldie, Tommy and Natasha! I do hope Sophie smiles again soon. (Even if we’re unable to see it as she acclimates to her new home.)
A true Breaking News moment!
Meanwhile, Back on the Nile
Outside the No Longer Hidden Library
Iggy: What do you got there, Bea?
Beatrixia: I found these gems in the treasure room next to the library. Want to play with one?
Enter Ora Z
Ora: It’s Little O, don’t you know!
Bea: Want a gem to play with?
Ora: Don’t mind if I do.
Enter Seven Elven Brothers (Not the Santa’s Helper Kind) With Their Father
Elf #1: They have our gems! Seize them!
Bea: Wait a minute! What do you mean by this?
Elf #2: We have sworn an oath to take back our gems no matter who has them! You will learn what happens to those who oppose us!
Ora: And you’re about to learn what happens to bullies!
A Fight Ensues
Elf #3: I could swear I just saw an angry sunflower!
Elvis-Anum: You did!
Violet-Ifa: Aren’t you going to join in the fray, Tash?
Ta-Natash: No, it looks like they’re doing fine by themselves
Box factories must be a cat’s version of Heaven… with treats inside.
… you know I thought my shiping of Sophie and Elvis was on shaky ground.. but then I see they have the same exact reaction to a new place and I feel validated. The minsicule hiss is also adorable. The bold new purple future is here. I also wonder if now it’s Tommy’s yard he’ll still show up outside the window, you know for old times sake?
It’s my Bureau, and I’ll hide if I want too, Hide if I want too! You would hide too. if they asked you to, mooove!
And now, appearing, Live! Tommy and the Miniscule Hisses!
They just issued a winter storm warning for 4-8 inches of heavy snow starting late tonight and lasting through noon tomorrow. This will be on top of the 5 inches that fell on Sunday. The prediction for Sunday had been for an inch or less with temps warm enough that it wouldn’t stick to the roads and would quickly melt. I hope they got it wrong this time and we’ll end up getting the less than an inch we were supposed to get on Sunday.
Tuesday is my usual grocery shopping day. The stores will be crowded. Fortunately, I don’t need bread, milk, eggs or toilet paper!
Goldie toe beans!
OT, need purrs again.
Miniscule Hiss may be Sophie’s new BCW name.
How thoughtful of the BPH to provide a bureau for Sophie to hide under!
Second panel hit me like a train…Guess I haven’t woken up yet
Forward Sophie’s mail to “Under the Bureau”! (Pronounced “Chest-a-droars” here, by the way)
Goldie has such pizzazz, makes me think of a game show host announcing a prize. It’s good there was something for her to hide under, all the excitement will definitely not be to Sophie’s taste.
In panel two, I’m hearing Goldie as if she’s a game show announcer telling a contestant what they’ve won.
Love the miniscule hiss.
It’s the “minuscule hiss” that got me.
Better check to see if any of Elvis’ mail is still under there, Sophie! Although at this point it’s probably so far its relevant date that you could make origami with it instead.
Poor Sophie. When Paul and I moved here, Yum Yum protested all the way and for a couple of days afterwards. No one could doubt we had a Siamese!
The long-awaited arrival of the mice- Natasha, specifically. I wonder what she’ll be stealing from this move.
As they were moving down the street
Down the street, down the street
A pretty li’l cat still had cold feet
And we hope she’ll stop her hissin’ real soon
Sophie sweet girl won’t you come out tonight
Come out tonight, come out tonight
And paint by the light of the moon
They packed her art things with nylon stockings
But she’s still not a-talkin’ ‘bout a move so shockin’
When she’s ready, opportunity is a-knockin’
And she can paint by the light of the moon

I think we can all agree that Minuscule Hiss oughta be someone’s new band name.
Poor Sophie .love the ’minuscule hiss"!!
Elvis did the same!
Does this make Sophie a bureau-cat?
Keep movin’, movin’, movin’
Though the movers are cruisin’
Keep them kitties rollin’, Rawhide
Through rain and wind and weather
The move is for the better,
A-wishing Goldie was by my side
All the things I’m missin’
Good vittles, love and kissin’
Are waiting at the end this drive,
Move ’em in, head ’em up, head ’em up, move ’em in
Move ’em in, head ’em up, Rawhide
Cut ’em out, stack ‘em here, move ’em in, cut ’em out
Cut ’em out, move on in, Rawhide
Though they’re disapproving
Keep them kitties movin’, Rawhide
Don’t try to understand them
They’ll be happy when we move ‘em
Soon they’ll be living high and wide
My heart’s calculating
Goldie will be waiting
Be waiting at the end of my drive
Move ’em on, head ’em up, head ’em up, move ’em on
Move ’em on, head ’em up, Rawhid
The Minuscule Hiss: When you want something to know that you’re angry, but you don’t want to risk it actually hearing you.
It’ll be all right, Sophie – you’ll find a new sun puddle, and have marvelous windows to look out of!
When is Tommy going to get Sophie over to those BIG windows?
I bet there is something interesting in the left behind bureau ….
Hopefully, there are enough boxes to make an epic fort.
You can forward all of Sophie’s mail to: Under the bureau!
Dainty hiss might be more appropriate for Sophie but minuscule is pretty darned good.
Gasp! Could that be the Bureau of Lost Socks!
OT My unplanned afternoon off from work.
I do hope Sophie has finished growing.
Aw, miniscule hiss!
Poor little Sophie needs to get used to a new home.
LOL! Minuscule hiss!
When Sophie crawls out there, she will be unrecognizable for all the dust bunnies and cobwebs that will cover her.
It looks like Lupin is ready for the adventure inside all of those boxes.
Quick, check the dresser for old stock bonds. They might still be worth something (then again, the company might have folded fifty years ago)
OT for DorseyBell….Are you OK after the storm?
Tiny hiss – awwww!
Poor little Sophie (minuscule hiss indeed!)
Oh, Sophie, sweet girl. You’ll be okay. Take your time and let the bureau shelter you for now.
Hiding until you feel better about a place is par for many cats. They either seem to hide or explore their new territory.
Omigosh Sophie is so precious!
y’know, i could really pull off the Hawaiian shirt and bow tie look
