Cooper the Cattledog here to tell the story, with our Instagram posts, of when Tuxedo Jack, Buffy Cat and I first met.


Our 17th assignment in Writing 101 is to “mine our own material” so we went back to when we started our Instagram account on August 12, 2013. It was our first tentative pawprints into social media.

When we first started our IG account we decided to tell the rocky story of when my dad and their mom got together and we got stuck with each other. We thought you might enjoy reading it today.


 


 

My name is Jack. This was taken in May of 2012. I was still living a lovely dog free life with BuffyCat and my mom. It all changed in June…. A photo posted by CooperDog, TuxedoJack & Buffy (@twocats_anda_cattledog) on


 

My name is Buffy. Sometimes known as BuffyCat or Buffy the Lizard Slayer. Do you see this lovely relaxed face? This was in May of 2012… pre-D.O.G.

I don’t think that little thing called Buffy is saying anything nice. Wonder if she wants to play chase?

In our new house one of the safest places is on our cat tree. Here I keep watch for the D.O.G. while Buffy explores the weird plant hanging near our perch.

Ever since those CATs came I haven’t been able to come into the bedroom without supervision. And often, not even then. Is it my fault those things seem like prey to me? A photo posted by CooperDog, TuxedoJack & Buffy (@twocats_anda_cattledog) on Instagram


 

The adventure of the closed door beckons… Do I dare what lies beyond?

Is that the D.O.G? Ever since I moved into this place I’ve had PTSDD. Post Traumatic Stress Dog Disorder. A photo posted by CooperDog, TuxedoJack & Buffy (@twocats_anda_cattledog) on


 

Ahhhhh… D.O.G. Is locked out of room… Time for a catnip coma.

We are NOT plotting against the D.O.G. … Well maybe a little … A photo posted by CooperDog, TuxedoJack & Buffy (@twocats_anda_cattledog) on


 

I don’t understand Buffy’s problem… She runs, I run, works for me! Wish she’d let me closer so I could start the game.

That black and white CAT only walks around… I wonder what I have to do to play hunter and prey? A photo posted by CooperDog, TuxedoJack & Buffy (@twocats_anda_cattledog) on


 

Woohoo! It’s July 2012 and I get to go to Idaho with Dad! And ??? those cats don’t get to come!

The Idaho ranch is awesome!!!! A photo posted by CooperDog, TuxedoJack & Buffy (@twocats_anda_cattledog) on


 

I slept soundly on the bed in Idaho, not worrying about sharing it with those cats.

When I first met my dad’s kissing partner I wasn’t sure we were going to get along. But when she became my mom we decided to love each other forever.

I was so sad when we had to leave the ranch in 2012. I don’t know why my folks don’t realize that’s where we’re supposed to be. A photo posted by CooperDog, TuxedoJack & Buffy (@twocats_anda_cattledog) on


 

Jack here. Let me tell you it was great when that D.O.G. was gone for July. We had the run of the whole house!

A photo posted by CooperDog, TuxedoJack & Buffy (@twocats_anda_cattledog) on


 

We lounged wherever we wanted to … A photo posted by CooperDog, TuxedoJack & Buffy (@twocats_anda_cattledog) on


 

We were playful and carefree when they were gone that whole month… Admittedly we missed mom and her guy but all in all… Dog free is the place to be.

A photo posted by CooperDog, TuxedoJack & Buffy (@twocats_anda_cattledog) on


 

  Then that dog came back…   A photo posted by CooperDog, TuxedoJack & Buffy (@twocats_anda_cattledog) on


 

If the dog wasn’t sniffing around inside, he was snuffling around outside. A photo posted by CooperDog, TuxedoJack & Buffy (@twocats_anda_cattledog) on


 

  We tried to come to accord… usually I just waited the dog out. I have eons more patience.   A photo posted by CooperDog, TuxedoJack & Buffy (@twocats_anda_cattledog) on


 


As you can see from our Instagram posts, a lot has changed in the four years we’ve been together. It’s taken a long time, but we’re like siblings now (jealousy, hissy fits, pals and all). We all live on the ranch and Jack and Buffy love it as much as I do. We all sleep on the bed together too (Dad keeps mumbling about getting a king-sized bed). Buffy still hisses at me, and I still keep Jack Cat in his place (although he keeps moving anyway… cats…).

I hope you enjoyed this. Instagram is where we started and made a lot of friends like Peter the Schnauzer. He is one of the best pups ever and you should really check him and his gang out in Schaunzytown. His person made a pawesome painting with me in it!

  1. I love catching up on how you furries got where you are. So fun! Compromise is good. I’m glad you all figured each other out. Mom and Dad, too! Yay!

    Love and licks,

    • Thanks Cupcake. I remember we met you on Instagram. Did you know I wouldn’t let Jack (and certainly not Buffy) into the kitchen for a year? Now I know why, he’s always wanting a treat that might have gone to me!
