Fail

Granny lives in an apartment building in the center of a big city. Mom had the brilliant idea to take me for a walk to the basement because she thought I’d like to explore long corridors.

cats hate closed doors

Eh …. shouldn’t she know that we cats hate closed doors??? And that we love windows?? Total fail. After several attempts to make her open doors, I showed her in no uncertain terms that I had enough. Bah. A basement where people store a lot of stuff in boxes sounds fun, but not this stupid corridor. Honestly – what was she thinking???

Intergenerational competence

Thank you for your support, kitties, I’ll go for the maximum number of boxes!

Today I want to share some inter-generational wisdom with you to get maximum attention from your humans! Occupying Mom’s laptop is a very powerful tool to get her full attention. However, I’ve never seen Granny with a laptop, so I tried sitting on her newspaper. Success!

Even better – on the newspaper and crossword at the same time.

Hehehehehehe. Needless to say: look as sweet and innocent as possible!

Curiosity Stretched The Cat

curiosity stretched the catWe live in an old house from 1890, and our neighbors are partly heating with firewood. It’s a pity that we don’t have one of those lovely old-fashioned masonry stoves in our apartment – we’d love to snuggle there. However, we DO get to share their wood shed, and of course Kajsa and I love being there.

If I only knew what was in the shed next door! Mom says that she’s no idea. The key is lost, and nobody has opened this shed for many many years.

Arg! Aren’t humans stupid??? I tried to get her interested, and had some suggestions:

  • A squirrel colony? Mom says she’s not interested in squirrels. Besides, she thinks it’s unlikely that they live in colonies.
  • A mouse colony then? Mom says that it’s sometimes better not to know things. Eh????
  • A treasure of gold and silver, from pirates or smugglers? Mom says that this is Finland. Highly unlikely.
  • An old murder mystery, a body, and our house will be cursed until we open the shed? Mom says I had too much cat nip. Bah.

Help me out here! Why are humans not curious enough to BREAK IN and find out?

And You’ll Never Walk Alone

One of the things I haven’t thought about when I cat-proofed my home was enough space in my cupboards. I have to put more things away now – bread, fruit, or let’s face it: anything I don’t want my cats to eat / play with / destroy.

I finally got myself to do one of the most boring things I know: to rearrange my cupboards.

You can always count on Tessa’s help when something needs to get fixed. She was sleeping upstairs, but it took her only 2 minutes until she joined me.

naughty cats

All activities are more fun with cats. Especially if you want to find new safe places for stuff you want to keep paw-free.

What Humans Learn From Their Parents

Mom was surprised that I snuggled with Granny a lot. She’d love to snuggle more with me, but I normally go away after some seconds.

So one evening she petted me, and I hissed at her. Granny saw what happened, and started tickling me right after I had hissed at Mom. The latter couldn’t believe her eyes when I started purring. Those stupid humans eventually figured out that Granny tickles me in a different (read: better) way than Mom.

Oh, how I miss my Granny!

the best way to make your cat purr

Since then Mom’s tickling skills have enhanced a lot. She still has a lot to learn, but she’s on a good way. Can you believe that she’s been TOO STUPID to tickle me for 7 months??

Hehehehe. Let’s see when she’ll change my byline!

Meow Meow, Gray Cat, Have You Any Wool?

Feline friends!

Any ideas why Mom started laughing? I think this is a perfect sleeping position.
