I have really goned and done it this time. I have been being so naughty in the office during the day while mama is trying to work, she decided maybe I would be happier and better (not well) behaved if she let me have more freedom. This morning she left my food and water in my room, but she took some toys from my little blue basket and left them in the living room. Both my favorite kitty teasers were in the living room, but she brought a few mousies and foam balls into the office in case I came in to visit. I was pretty excited about being loose in the whole house, but I missed mama and came in to see what she was doing. She thought it was so cute that I brought in my very favorite, very ratty looking kitty teaser. It only has a few feathers left because I play real wild with it. It is not easy getting it through small places; sometimes the handle can get in the way. I played with my teaser for awhile, and mama seemed really happy. Pretty soon I got bored with the teaser and sat patiently at the door. Mama opened the door, and I scampered out. Kitten things, kitten things. I gotta go do kitten things. Mama was engrossed in her work when she heard the crash. She came running out of the office and found her favorite early 1920s antique lamp with the beautiful pink shade, fringe, and pull tassel flat on the floor. But, mama; I just wanted to play with the pull tassel. It was hanging there all fluffy, and it was teasing me. All I did was climb on the love seat (no-no) and swat at the pull tassel (no-no). Then I thought maybe I could get closer, so I stood up on my hind legs and put my front paws on the lamp. All of a sudden the lamp took off, and it crashed right to the floor all by itself. People say cheetahs are fast, but I was nowhere to be found when mama got to the lamp. Mama was NOT happy. She told me I was bad. Can you imagine? Me...Bad. No, I do not think so. It was just an accident. Stuff happens, you know? Mama took the lamp to grampster. She did not know if he could fix it, but grampster fixed the lamp, and it is as good as new. Maybe even better, who knows?
During my loooonnnnnng time-out, I made a list of the naughty things I have learned how to do:
I can open the glass shower doors, hop into the tub, and scamper around. This means that when the tub is wet, I get all wet. Then I usually have to use my potty. I catnot help it if the litter sticks to my wet fur. I am just a kitten.
I have learned how to sit on the trash can in the kitchen and jump up on the counter. I only do it when mama is not there to see me, but I have been caught a time or two.
I have learned to sit in the middle of the dining room table and gnaw on mama's orchids.
I have learned how to leap into the bay window and set the hanging antique leaded glass dec-ration dancing. It makes mama scream.
I have learned how to pick up my water dish in my teeth and tip it upside down. The water looks so interesting when it's soaking into the carpet. If I do it in my room, it makes a wonderful puddle on the floor.
I have learned how to climb up on both computer desk hutches and throw things off the top. That makes mama scream too.
I have learned how to scoot into any closet door that opens real fast and real sneaky. Then I wail to be let out because I changed my mind.
I have learned how to make the pictures on the wall swing back and forth. See, if you can just find something to climb on, you take your paw and bat at the picture until it starts to go back and forth. It makes a cool noise too, kind of a squirtch, squirtch sound.
I have learned how to knock over vases and how to pull the most funnerest things out from the rest and drag them around the house.
I have learned how to hop onto the dressing table and dance in mama's perfume bottles if she does not get up early enough. When she hears the bottles clinking together, she is happy to get up and give me breakfast or...not. Sometimes I end up in my room. Then I wail so she feels sorry for me and catnot get back to sleep.
I have learned how to do some good things too, but that is a shorter list. :)
You are lucky your Mama just screams at you. My Mom spanks us when we do something bad. She has a rolled up newspaper (well actually it is just one of the small retail ads that comes in the Sunday paper) and she taps us lightly on the bottom and firmly tells us no when we are being bad. She says she has used this method on my 5 older fursibs with good results and it seems to be working with me too. We have all learned not to cause to much trouble but we still get into things now and then.
Try to take it easy on you Mama. She needs to get her work done so she can spend more quality time with little you. I think you may need to work at reversing those two lists.
MOL! That's quite an impressive list little guy! :~)
I love feathers too! Meowmy buys us the cheap feather dusters and put a little nip in the hollow center, drives us nuts! They don't last long. I'm gonna have to try out some of that stuff on your list, the stuff I haven't already done anyway.
Most impressive for such a youngster.
Oh, Kousin Gun-Gun,
Are you SURE you haven't been hanging out with your Kousin Milo at Auntie Elizabeth's house? He makes the piktures on the wall swing too. He also like to gnaw on things he's not supposed to. He even stole Auntie E's $20, chewed on it and then hid it. hee hee. He also ate his Auntie M's shoe laces. Being a kit-ten does have its merits. Mom sez you will grow up and like to sleep more than those things. Do you think your Mom will have inny hair left by then? hee hee ;)
Wow, Gunnarr, we agree that this is quite a grand list of naughty!! And we understand how some things, like those tassels, just call to a kitty "come play with me, see how much you can make me swing & wriggle!" A kitty just cannot resist that kind of teasing, yes?
