Delilah & da Garlicky Bed

Mommy: "Delilah honey, aren't you going to help build the new raised bed for the garlic?"

Delilah: "Mommy! It's raining out here... and it's freezing! Are you crazy?"

Delilah: "I think I should have stayed inside with my sister Iris and snuggled on the sofa."

Mommy: But Delilah, you and Dr Tweety are our gardening cats. You have to help."

Delilah: "What exactly is that thing? A raised bed? Can I sleep in it??"

Mommy: "Delilah... you weren't paying attention. It's for garlic."

Delilah: "A bed for stinky plants?? You've got to be kidding!"

Delilah: "Well this merits further investigation... Daddy? Can I see?"

Delilah: "Wow! That's quite a contraption! You know, the more I see this bed, I think that it would make an excellent kitty-litter box for when Dr Tweety has his parties. Can we poop in this thing Daddy? Can I try it out?"

Daddy: "Now sweetie, no pooping in it. But you can get a closer look if you want."

Delilah: "I can't wait until Angus gets a load of this thing!"

Delilah: "Um... Daddy? Aren't you forgetting to do something? Isn't dirt or litter supposed to go in the bottom of this bed?"

Delilah: "Oh this is a riot... and they thought they knew how to garden? Mommy??? You better put that camera down right now and get over here and help Daddy! He's using the kitty-litter bed!"

Delilah: "I am not going to hold my breath until Spring on this one folks. If we get any stinky plants (instead of stinky poops) out of this box, it will be a major miracle."

Dr Tweety: " You see how tingszez are oevfur here. If any cat wants to help egg-nog-erate dis box, you haz my personal invite!"

PS: Da Momee iz at a 3 day meetin' fur her work.. so we cannots be bloggin' until Fry-day. See you den!

That looks like it will be a very good big litterbox. We use the greenhouse but mum duzn't scoop it as often as we would like.

Gemini and Ichiro said...

It is certainly a good thing you are there to help out!

Cat with a Garden said...

You didn't promise too much - your two really are Gardening Cats! It's a lot of work, isn't it. Thanks for the info on the Furminator. (I fear my mom is going to get one).

Who knew garlics needed their own bed!? Do they get a pillow, too?

Anonymous said...

We think it would be put to a much better use of they planted catnip! That is a very good smell!

Great job of snooperzising. You are the best!

Goldie, Shade and Banshee said...

The PM is jealous of your garlic. She wants a bed like that too!

Sunny's Mommy said...

Dude! I wished I'd seen this earlier, but you know how Mommys are. Next time I feel a super stinky poop coming on, I'll be right over!


Rosemary B❤️ said...

Your dad made a good garden, you could do some pooping in that "raised bed"
Superb pictures!! stay warm Delilah

Boy said...

That's a fuwwy huge bed! Why do stinky pwants need such a huge bed? I don't even need such a huge one!

Tesla and Hansel said...

Chrissie said...

Delilah, my heart, you're so pretty! And doing a wonderful job snoopervisin' the construction of that VERY LARGE litter box! How very kind of your people to provide facilities suitable for the entire cat blogosphere! Please extend my gratitude and tell Dr. Tweety I'm in for the next par-tay!

Everycat said...

It's all go in your garden Delilah!

Angel MoMo and Charlotte said...

What raised bed for garlic???? I reckon that's a giant litter box for our next party. Right, Dr T??? Or a sand bed or rolling around. Either way we are claiming it for our entertainment.

Robyn and The (Mostly) Badass Cat said...

I'll help egg-nogg-erate the box Dr Tweety. Then you can come help me liberate the hams in the fridge.
Purrrrrs huge smoochiez,

JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

I think that is a really great big pooping spot!

Black Cat said...

Heehee, you are very good gardening cats. Methinks the garlic will be, erm, well-fertilised?!? :) xxx

Mark's Mews (Marley, Lori, Loki, and Binq) said...

Oh Bast, The Big Thing is about ta plant garlic too... At least it won't be in places where we like ta nap...

Robyn and The (Mostly) Badass Cat said...
