That's what mama keeps asking me: "Gunnarr, why are you SO naughty?" I don't know. I simply do not know. I don't set out to be naughty; it just happens. I guess I have a rare talent for doing things that mama considers "naughty."
This morning we started working at 6:30. By 7:08 I was headed for time-out. I had been leaping on everything, swatting at artwork on the wall, chewing on saddles, and the prize naughtiness, trying to shinny underneath mama's flat screen computer monitor to check out the router sitting behind it (where mama thought it would be safer from me - HA!!). I spent an hour or two in my room, napping and playing with toys. Then mama felt sorry for me being all alone. I secretly think she was missing my wonderful company. She came and got all my things and took me back into the office with her. It was only about five minutes before I started acting up again. This time she thought she could outsmart me. She remembered something she had before for kitties who like to leap up where she thinks they don't belong. It is a battery operated squealer called a Tattle Tail. Mama put the Tattle Tail on an office chair because that's where I start most of my naughtiest adventures. From the chair I can go to the saddles, artwork, or computer. Maybe a whole minute passed before I jumped on the chair. The Tattle Tail screamed at the top of his lungs. Mama turned around to see me sniffing and pawing at the Tattle Tail. It screamed again, and I batted at it. What a fun new toy!
Mama thought, OH NO! Maybe Gunnarr is deaf! She ran to pick me up and cuddle me. Then she did a spearmint. She waited until I was interested in something else and not looking at her. She said my name very softly. My ear twitched, and I turned around and looked right away. She was relieved that I am not deaf, but she figured I would be if the Tattle Tail kept screaming in my ear, so she turned it off and put it away.
After work mama was real bizzy working on our computer. She heard a crashing sound and went to investigate. I had dumped an expensive pottery vase with all the dried and silk flower things in it. Mama said she didn't know how it missed a big piece of Roseville when it fell, but nothing was broken. You guessed it; I went to my room for awhile. After mama let me out, I disappeared for awhile. Later I came into the office with something in my mouth. When mama looked to see what it was I had carried in, it was a willow rose from the arrangement I dumped over. Here, mama; I brought you a flower. Game over. I win...

You have a room? My time out is in the bathroom. I am there a lot!
My mom screams a lot- NO! MILO!!MILO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I also try and try to get behind the flat screen monitor. I know what her reaction will be but I CANNOT HELP MYSELF! I think you know what I mean.
OH!OH! My mom wants to know where to get a Tattle Tale. Although me thinks she would be wasting her money. Mr Vacuum does not scare me at all.... so probably the noise would not deter me either.
