Fired!

Found by the human on her keyboard this morning…

Yes, she’s been busy at work again and has failed to blog.  What are the kitties to do? <<It’s awfully cold to send the 2-legged outside, but if this keeps up, we’ll consider it.>>

Curtain Beater

Corky has developed the craziest way of acting out lately. When the human is reluctant to refill the food bowl, he ducks behind some curtains in front of a sliding-glass door, stands on his back legs, and then bats the curtains for all he’s worth while letting out a string of vocal complaints.  The camera hasn’t managed to catch him in the act yet, but it has caught him right after doing the dirty deed. Notice his tail is still under the fabric? Why would you suppose that beating up on some curtains would make the human do what you want?Does he look guilty to you? This acting out often does have the desired effect of encouraging the human to put a few more crunchies in the food bowl. Hence, there’s probably little hope that he’ll stop anytime soon.

Most Evil Cat Torture Device?

Which torture device do you think is most scary?  It’s a close call between the nail clippers and the vacuum.  However, the clippers only come out once a month and only three of the cats have front claws that need to be trimmed.  The vacuum, on the other hand, comes out multiple times a week and causes pandemonium among all the boy kitties.  Yes, you guessed it, Miss Mac is not afraid of the vacuum as long as she’s up high and it stays down on the floor and doesn’t come too near. She just smirks at it. The boys, on the other hand, run for the next floor whenever they even hear the cord rattle and long before the scary motor turns on.

By the way, bells didn’t even make the list this year. That’s got to be progress of a type.

Should We Punish Her?

<<You’ve noted the lack of postings of late have you not? The human is back to focusing too much time and effort on work and too little on us — or at least on chronicling our adventures for you, our admirers. Yes, we’ve learned to post, and yes we know how to buy stock photos from the internet, but no we don’t know how to use the camera…not that we could pry her cell phone away from her to get access to it. So what do you think we should do? We thought about sending her back to the doghouse, but right after we did that she abandoned us to go camping.  Perhaps that was not as well conceived as we thought. Humans…can’t live with them and can’t live without them.>>

Our Human is Home

<<It’s about time.  Can’t let her know we actually missed her. That would give her the upper hand. However, we did miss her and we’re glad she’s back. Never fear, we’ve been plotting our revenge all week. You can bet there will be some funny pictures and posts in the not-too-distant future…if we can get her to get back to blogging that is.>>

Do You Think this is All An Excuse to Run Away and Play with Dogs?

<<It wouldn’t be the first time that our human disappeared for a day or two and came back smelling like a stinkin’ dog.  Maybe she’s off cheating on us. Sure hope she doesn’t bring one of those wretched creatures home with her. She does that, you know. Any poor abandoned creature will do.>>

She’s Taking a Short Vacation Out Back

<<The bad human and her computer were sent outside for a while. Hopefully, she’ll get back to blogging shortly. It’s kind of crowded out there and the internet connection is really iffy.>>

Dangerously Close to being Sent Back to the Dog House

<<Bad human! She’s forgotten that we’re more important than work and hasn’t posted in over a week. We’re giving her one more chance before we send her out to the dog house.>>

Boxed in…

The “oh so funny” human put a big box on the floor. The cats ignored it. The human picked up the wobbly egg toy, turned it on, and put it in the box.  Mac came over to check out the noise, at which point the helpful human picked her up and put her in the box with the egg. Mac was not amused. Neither was she entertained. She stared away ignoring her surroundings and plotting new methods to wake the human from a sound sleep at 3:30 am. The human has since been punished 3 nights running for her insolence.
