There is a special chair in our house. It doesn't look very special. It is really old and threadbare. Everyone that sees it says it belongs in the dump. But, it is special because it is comfy and Mom always sits in it to watch TV. When the sun shines through our picture window, it becomes the most desirable spot in the house. But, when Mom is home, she is sometimes in it when I want it. So, this is how I work the plan - the plan of getting the chair to myself :
I am a smart kitty. I hang around and pretend I really love Mom and want to cuddle with her while she watches TV. So, I get on her lap and start kneading with my super sharp claws. I know just where the top of her pants are and the bottom of her bra. I aim for that spot where there is just a very thin T-shirt between her soft belly and my sharp claws. After doing that for a while, if she doesn't leave the chair, I pretend to settle on her lap. What I really want is the chair to myself, after she warmed it up. Yesterday, I got tired of waiting for her to have to get up and do something so I got up on the arm rest and looked her in the eye and meowed at her. That didn't work so I put my paw behind her shoulder and pulled at her! She took the hint and got up and watched as I quickly took possession of the chair. I think she is onto my tricks now but let me have the chair anyway and went off to do something else.
Then, today, I did all of the same tricks and got the chair. But, not according to my plan was Kitcat. She noticed the special chair in the sun that I had acquired through cunning and intelligent means. She decided it looked like a good place to be and bullied her way onto the chair with me so now I have to share it with her. Not only that, I had to groom the stinky girl.
You sure are a smart kitty, that sounds like a fantastic chair and warm sunny snuggle spot!
Sneaky aren't you. Well, it fits, after all Squirrels are sneaky too.
And you had to groom her? Oh that Kitcat! I do the exact same thing so I'm taking notes and I'll let you know how it goes here. Thanks fur the advice!
I do that to Pipo, get into his spots...but I have not tried the other tricks with meowmy!
MOL! That chair does sound pretty nice.
MOL you guys have it all figured out. MOL.
