Tyler Talks Bullying

July 29th, 2013 by Magdalena Tabor

I’m sorry I could not get to blog sooner but I have had a tough weekend. All right, I’m the new kid on the block, I get it. But two against one is no fair. Both Clemetine and Snowshoe have been ganging up on me. Why? Is it because I’m cute? Because I get treated the same way they do even though I just got here? Why can’t I walk across a room minding my own business without having Clementine growl at me? It’s very unladylike. And if I want to play with the toys, Snowshoe wakes up out of a sound sleep, gets up and gives me the eye. Then he POUNCES on me. Scared the bejesus out of me! What’s a poor cat to do? Oh. Did I say I was playing with the toys? I was only pretending to like them. I wouldn’t want the Beans to get too self satisfied. I like watching them play with the feathery thing on the long pole. They look ridiculous.tyler

When Clementine leaves the room, I naturally want to follow her to see what she’s up to. How else will I get to know everything that goes on around here? Like, is there a hidden stash of food somewhere, something other than what the Beans normally serve? Are there secret hiding places I don’t know about, perhaps leading to the outside world? Then I can make my get-away and hop a plane back to Texas where things are more normal. It’s a good thing I still have my paratrooper’s gear somewhere in case I have to make an emergency sky dive. I’d rather deal with scorpians in the desert than have old Tuna Breath hiss in my face one more time. How insulting! These Long Islanders have no manners compared to a southern gentleman like myself. It’s a good thing they haven’t found out about my Facebook page yet. I will not “friend” them.

The Beans have been really great throughout this whole ordeal. They will not let those kids get the upper paw. At one time Snowshoe was banished to the basement. Ha! And Clementine retreated to the dining room. She probaly thought she was gonna have some sort of candlelit dinner or something, but they YELLED at her. Ha! Ha! I can’t wait until I’m around long enough for them to yell at me. Then I’ll be as important as they are.

The thing to remember about being bullied is, stand your ground. Thus far I have been sent reeling for the safety of the dolls under their chair. But they wouldn’t get involved.¬† They didn’t even bat an eyelash. They always pretend I’m not even there. I honestly don’t know what’s worse. Being the center of bullying attention or ignored completely. As soon as I get a chance I’m going to pull their curls out. Maybe knock the little one on the floor. That’ll wipe the smirk off her face.

So………………….whadayathink? What should be my next move if I can’t climb out the window? Should I swat the little white spot off Snowshoe’s face? Should I hold the door open for Clementine (in all politeness) to make her exit? Why should I be the one to leave? I’ll give her my paratrooper’s gear and a one way ticket to Nacogdoches.

    Tyler, sorry to hear you’re having such problems. Sadly, bullying is not limited to the Beans! I must advise you to be careful, but the phrase “stand your ground” is a hot topic these days. Be Careful!!!
    My advice: just be yourself and ignore them for awhile and then Snowshoe, Clementine and maybe even the Queen Isis might seek out your companionship out of curiosity!
    Hang in there.

    Thanks for your support, Chip. If you don’t mind me asking……are you feline, canine, doll or Bean ?

  3. Chip Says:

    No problem Tyler. As for your question…………………..I’d prefer to find out what you think. The only clue I’ll give you for now is that I’m far from a “doll”.
