According to Mom, Vanessa and I are spending more time sleeping than we used to. It may appear to be so, but she's not always home with us all day, so what would she know! Here's what happened earlier today during a break from napping.
Mom was in the bedroom sorting some clothes from the middle drawer of the dresser. The drawer was partially open with some clothes on the carpet and other items still in the drawer. Vanessa saw an opportunity to explore a new spot and jumped in the drawer and then squeezed herself through the open space so that she was now standing at the back of the dresser.
It soon became apparent that extracting herself from that spot would not be as easy a feat as getting there. I took advantage of the situation and swiped my paw at her several times through the space created at the bottom of the open dresser drawer. Mom was laughing and told Vanessa that now she was stuck there and had no way of getting out unless she was able to leave the same way she got in.
I hoped that Mom would just leave Vanessa there but she went to the trouble (totally unnecessary in my opinion) of making her escape effortless by removing the entire drawer. Vanessa stepped right into the empty dresser drawer that was now balancing on Mom's legs. It didn't look like she was going anywhere, so Mom had to lift her out with one hand and plunk her onto the bed. I then took advantage of the fact that the middle drawer of the dresser was out of my way and found myself a cozy spot on top of the sock-filled plastic bags in the bottom drawer. Before long I left and Mom put the middle drawer back in and finished rearranging her clothes.
I wish I could have stopped her from doing what she did next. She made a phone call to the awful place and mentioned my name in the conversation. I observed her scrawl "10 am Sat. June 9" onto a notepad along with my name and the evil words "vet appt." I had to act now or never so I quickly jumped onto the small table where the phone and answering machine are located and succeeded in toppling the answering machine. Unfortunately, the phone call had just ended and Mom was hanging up, so I'm not sure that the party on the other end heard any evidence of my displeasure. Note to self: when trying to sabotage a phone call to the awful place don't wait until the end of the conversation.
P.S. If I'm not too busy napping, I may just entertain you with more episodes of "What cats do when they're not sleeping". Stay tuned.
Toffy, how was your Saturday?
Hi Beepers! My Saturday was great! The weather was nice and I went for a stroller ride. Unfortunately, I ended up at the vet clinic. Fortunately, I lost some weight since last year and was deemed to be in the ideal body condition category. Unfortunately, I got my claws trimmed. Fortunately, the vet said that Mom could feed me more. Unfortunately, an appointment was made for me to get my teeth cleaned on the following Tuesday. Fortunately, it went well and none of my teeth were taken from me. :)
