Righty's recipe for unintentionally creating a "monster"

On the headboard of my bed sits a reading lamp that turns off and on just by touching a button on the lamp's base. There is also a space by the lamp that usually is occupied by a member of my cat family. Righty is one that spends quite a bit of time up there by the lamp and she discovered how to push the button that turns the lamp on and off. She's figured out that turning the lamp on and off when I'm in the bedroom is an excellent way to get attention.

Now Righty's personality is fairly laid-back and easygoing and she's often busy playing and doesn't demand a lot of human attention. Therefore, she uses the trick of turning the light off and on to get attention in moderation. She only does it occasionally. Although some of the other cats have observed her doing this, they haven't seemed interested in it and I haven't observed any other cat try to do it.

Today, all that changed when the ingredients for creating a "monster" all came together.

Here is Righty's recipe for unintentionally creating a "monster."

You take:
one reading lamp that turns off and on by touching a button.
one part Righty turning the light off and on.
one part Uno p.o.'d because after she tried to help herself to my sandwich today, she didn't get any tidbits of it.

Mix well until until Uno has absorbed the skill of turning the light off and on and continues repeating the skill. When the strobe effect of the light getting turned off and on becomes annoying enough that you pull the plug on the lamp to stop the Uno-powered strobe light, you know you (in this case Righty) succeeded in creating a "monster."
