T-13 - 13 Things I do that drive my Mum Crazy

1. Glass Tipper - If Mum leaves a glass on the table with water or ice tea and I can't get my head in to get any, I just tip it over and lap it up of the table : )

2. Sloth Walk - If Mum needs to get somewhere in a hurry (say the bathroom) I make sure I get in front of her and I do my sloth walk and then I stretch and weave back and forth so she can't pass me : )

3. The Temptation Whine - right after my Mum comes home from work I usually get Temptations. So, if she doesn't give them to me right away, I do the Temptation whine, which apparently is quite annoying : )

4. Dart out the Door - this one is tricky because she is always watching that I don't dart out the door, but if you wait long enough, sometimes even years, it can be done.

5. Clear the Table - this is a new one for me. I have decided I am tired of her junk being on my night table, so even though she has left me 1/2, put a purr pad there and a bowl of water I decided I want the whole night table so now at bedtime I just push all her stuff onto the floor.

6. It's the Middle of the Night, Let's Play

7. I Must Keep Digging in the Litterbox - I like to spend 5 or 10 minutes in the litterbox sometimes just maniacally digging, all the litter flying around seems to bother Mum.

8. Stroll Across the Food - okay I only did this once, but it did seem to freak her right out. There was a frozen pizza sitting on top of the stove waiting for the oven to preheat and I had to walk across it to get to the Temptation cupboard, I don't know what the big fuss was.

9. Stand in the Sink so Mum can't get ready for work

10. Pulling out big wads of fur just after Mum has used the sucky monster

11. Laying across Mum's forearms when she is on the computer and trying to type

12. Poking my head between Mum and her book so she can't read

13. Standing on her lap and crying when she is on the phone and she should be focusing all her attention on me!

Kellie, I mean Hellie, those are too funny! I especially liked the Sloth Walk. What a perfect description.

Bounce, Lucy and Trixie said...

Kellie we do the same kind of stuff to our mom too. We love standing in the sink and clearing off tables. It is fun!

Sunny's Mommy said...

A lot of cats do these things. Instead of allowing it to drive her crazy, your Mum should just get used to it!

Dragonheart said...

What's wrong with those? I do #7, 12 and 13. I don't like those book-things - I would much rather have my humans paying attention to me!

Diamond Emerald-Eyes said...

I do not know what it is about humans and digging in the litter box. I like to make sandcastles, what's it to her? Do I ever complain about how long she in he bathroom? No....

Victor Tabbycat said...

I can asplain #5! Yur infestigatin Gravity Free Zones (GFZ). It's SCIENCE!

I left a toy mousie in Dad's shoe last nite, so dis mornin he tossed it onto the bed for me an I chased it... all ofur Mom! WOW what fun!

Tybalt said...

I do #12 a lot. Sometimes I have to lay on it to get my point across.

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

hehee oh hellie/kellie - those are fantastic. I think they are thirteen reasons why it pays to have an evil/naughty alter ego! x

ASTOR CATS said...

Stray Kitty had a habit of plopping down right in a doorway and not moving - so if mom want to get in the room she has to step over him. That just drives our mom crazy - we think you should try that one!

Parker said...

I see nothing wrong with what you do - seems like SKOP (standard kitty operating procedure) to me!

Derby said...

Kelly Cat said...

And you say those things drive your Mum crazy? Oh, for goodness sake... humans get worked up over the most picayune things, don't they? It all comes down to this: the cat owns the human, and not the other way around!

Chairman Mao said...

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA... yup, yup, yup, alla us Ballicai do those things, too -- and Momma laffed so hard she about spewed her coffee. Heh! She espeshully loved the Sloth Walk, and me and Dorydoo love love love to do the maniackal diggin inna littur box and make a pile of littur as big and wide and deep as the Gobi Desurt fur Momma to have to sweet up!

Kittyhugs and purrs from MaoMao!

Chairman Mao said...

DaisyMae Maus said...

Those are excellent! I like to do the "rub the mirrored lid of the make-up case 'til it falls closed" an' then do it again!

Marilyn MonREOW said...

Oh, Kellie... um, Hellie... I can't quit giggling! I do some of those things, too. And I like to shred paper towels! You might try that sometime, too... it's a riot! *smile*

Junior said...

Number 13 is so funny! I don't stand on my Meowm's lap but when I decide she has been on the phone long enough I start merowing at her very loud......sometimes I nip at her!

Skeeter And LC said...

We do that sloth walk alla time. It is only useful in the hallway, though. He treatens to pick us up outta the way, but he nefer does.

#7 is pretty good too. I love sometimes not doin any coverin, but sometimes doin it for a LONG time. Drives The Big Thing crazy (cause my litterbox is in the computer room). I practlly emptied the litterbox once. Hey it jus seemed like a innerestin thing to do.

I really like sittin on anythin The Big Thing is trying to read…

Mom says OHMIGOSH! You are just like us!

And she says that Blasted Tigger (used to be Tigger the FBI Cat) played the dart out the door game yesterday! Mom didn't really call her "blasted" - um, I can't spell what she really called her.

Merry Christmas!
