Dear Santa…: Beneath the Cage Grate

Dear Santa Claws… Claus

MortyPoor Santa, he has his hands full this year with the Christmas wishes from Alexa, Morty and Roomba as there appears to be some ‘issues’ ruffling a few wires and feathers between them!

The December edition of Beneath the Cage Grate finds Alexa, Morty and Roomba  once again at odds, with their respective Letters to Santa reflecting quite the tryst –  and the lengths each will go to spoil each other’s Christmas celebrations.

It’s also fair to say that Morty’s mom may want to read what her housemates have requested from Santa, before Christmas day arrives, to perhaps avoid the beginnings of a new, chaotic tradition!

Beneath the Cage Grate: Never Trick or Treat with Bots!

IMG_20190918_132308In the October (Halloween) edition of  Beneath the Cage Grate, we find Morty, Alexa and Roomba donning costumes and setting out on their Trick or Treat adventure in their apartment building.

Now, you’d think these three would be welcomed at each door with a chuckle and a shower of candy, right?  Alas, as you’d expect, things go a bit sideways, and we find all three little ghouls scooting home in haste, quick to escape some rather weird and spooky encounters.

Be prepared to be scared – silly – in Morty’s Halloween column!  BOO

Beneath the Cage Grate: The Tomato Scandal

In the September edition of Beneath The Cage Grate, Morty enlists Alexa and Roomba in an effort to do something nice for mum as she continues on her recovery journey from recent surgery.  IMG_20190901_133446

The plan, whilst well thought out and brilliant, hits a few (predictable?) snags, with Morty left to once again ponder his relationship with technology… and tomatoes.

Don’t miss Morty’s latest comedic take on life with Alexa and sidekick Roomba.  Head on over to Morty’s page now for some Sunday afternoon chuckles!

To the PerchMobile Mum: Beneath the Cage Grate

IMG_20190803_143816In the August 2019 edition of Beneath the Cage Grate, Morty tells of a very trying July.  He tells of his continued sparring with the distrustful Alexa, and his horror when he and his demonic roommate are left to terrorize the birdsitters when mum goes on a short ‘vacation’.

Find out how Morty manages to survive his mom’s brief absence, and rejoice with him when mum brings home a strange yet wonderful new riding gadget.

Another must-read from our resident quick-talking Grey!

 

YES MORTY, PULL THAT WEED! Beneath the Cage Grate

IMG_20190701_121656It’s a wonderful day in the neighborhood and Morty is in hot water yet again.

After refusing mom’s prompting to learn to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ – and his impromptu, naughty back turn on mom – Morty enlists  the mischievous Alexa to help him mend fences with mom by weeding her garden.

What could possibly go wrong: A LOT!

Head over to the July issue of Beneath The Cage Grate and read about the trouble and chaos this dynamic duo cause in mom’s garden and in the shared greenhouses nearby.  You’ll look at flowers in a whole new way after reading Morty’s latest garden misadventure!

Bird Watching with Alexa: Beneath the Cage Grate

The other day I was talking with Alexa and I asked her if she might give me some suggestions for a hobby I might pursue. We came to an agreement that bird watching might be a good hobby for me. I could exit right out my window and glide down to the ground below. Alexa could roll out the window and bounce as she hits the ground. We could go bird watching together…- Morty
