BASHFUL: Oooooh! You look pretty! Who are you?
RICE: I’m a rice… short for rainbow mouse. Aunt Sharon sent me here all the way from Australia last year.
BASHFUL: Hey, I remember her! Dude, were you sent to The Nest as punishment too?
RICE: Of course not, I…
RICE #2: Ahem! I beg to differ!
BASHFUL: Wow! Another rice! Slightly used…
RICE 2: I’m his twin brother… and as you can see, I’m living proof of what can happen to you if you stay around this awful place for too long!
RICE 1: Oh, quit being so overly dramatic, bro.
RICE 2: That’s easy for you to say since you live the life of Riley up on the high shelf where the two abominable feline beasts can’t reach you! I, on the other hand, have been thrown to the wolves, so to speak. I’ve been abused and tortured and mutilated at their paws for the past nine months!
BASHFUL: Is that where you got that awesome fur-do? Good news, the frizzy look is coming back!
RICE 2: I’m just warning you, Bashful! Better keep an eye out! You never know when you might run into one of those hideous creatures with the sharp teeth!
RICE 1: Oh, you mean like now?
RICE 2: (Looks over his shoulder) Oh no…….. NO! Not again!
The hideous black and white beast latches on to the well-worn rainbow mouse and begins to haul him away.
RICE 2: Nooooooo! Somebody go get help! Call the police! The marines!!! Walt Disney!!! ANYBODY!!!!!!!
RICE 1: So, Bashful. Wanna go get a beer or something?
BASHFUL: Yes! Sounds like a plan! Let’s go!!!
RICE 2: (In agony) Oh, what a world, what a world……..
This is just the latest in a series of adventures Bacon’s pet rock Bashful can expect to have here at The Nest over the next few weeks. Stay tuned for more madness and mayhem as Bashful and my wide assortment of critters get into all kinds of trouble!
Your tag says “peet rock.”
The life of a chew toy is a sad one.
It would be hilarious if someone found this post searching for “peet rock”…
I wouldn’t doubt it!
Well, I expected better from Bashful, leaving Rice 2 to be mauled like that.
I guess he figures that if Rice #2 has put up with that for 9 months, and is still around to tell the tale, he can probably take another 9 months of it. That or the beer was really cold…
Maybe you can make Rainbow feel better by explaining his importance in the feline social and cultural structure. Make him realize that his sacrifice is not in vain? No? You don’t think that’ll work?
That knowledge might lead to a cat toy uprising, and no house would be safe anymore from angry catnip mice and downtrodden squeaky squirrels…
Reblogged this on Piglove and commented:
Oh snorts with piggy laughter! That Bashful of mine is always getting into some sort of trouble with kitties. XOXO – Bacon
Good grief! Was I hearing the death of Rice a Roni. It was horrible. What happens if Rice get’s stuck in the teeth of that dreaded one? I need to hear the next installment before my heart beats right out of my furry chest.
I think the Rice is just being a little whiny. I could go find a dog for him to play with and really give him something to complain about…
Bashful was at my house last month so I know all about his antics, er behavior. Gotta watch him like a hawk. But he is a pretty sweet guy and the bar thought he was a good tipper and patron. Lucky for Rice 1. 😉
I think he’s going to either meet his match or end up totally corrupted by the crazy critters that hang around The Nest. Heck, who know, he might not want to leave!
All We three can say is watch the rock. Give him an inch, he will take a mile.
Bashful may be outnumbered this time by my equally questionable characters that hang around here. I’m sure there’s going to be some hella good stories to come…
But that is why they came into existence, to be mutilated and torn … to serve as lust slaves for their feline overlords … Rice …
Some rice just can’t understand their destiny…
Ha ha ha! Brilliant encounter 😀
Rich Mouse, Poor Mouse meets Bashful…
HaHaHa! I am so glad ricy is fulfilling his destiny as a feline chew toy. Tell him to stop being such a sook and remember he is AUSTRALIAN! Hi Bashful!
Yeah, he needs to tough it out! It can’t be any worse than getting bitten by a shark. Just put a band aid on it!
precisely, geeze! Man up Ricy. 😀
