Well I should say the tribcat has had an entire week like the Gincat's, only with extra insults thrown in as the reason we have all been here all week is because ds fractured his collar bone last Sunday. So: - ds' bed has been in my room, which means tribcat has had to sleep on it religiously every day and night to make the point that any new sleeping surface is first for her and only then for humans (but ds has been sleeping quite restlessly so every now and then she gets kicked off - I have been using a desk in the dining room which used to be upstairs, so now that has to be jumped on to and inspected fully every time I am trying to do a phone conference - she has not been the centre of attention because ds has been treated - in his words - 'like a king'.
Plus, I think in an animaly way she's been a bit worried about ds herself, I think she can sense he is not quite himself.
Sounds like I should be thanking my lucky stars she hasn't been pooping on the pillows after this!
Charlie could sulk for Britain. You knew he was sulking at you because he sat in front of you with his back to yoou.
He once spent ages finding the one spot in the room he could sulk at us (a few freinds round).
On one occasion he was mad at my friend so turned his back. I picked him up and turned him to look at said friend, he turned his head away. I turned his head back and he actually turned his eyes as far to the side as he could.
Of course we were in hysterics over this, and he sulked more.
One of mine poos in our toilet when he is annoyed-but he always misses and gets it everywhere... The other one likes to sneak into my car when I am not paying attention, and doze off in the children's seats or the back shelf, to then jump out at me when I am about a mile down the road so I have to drive her home again...
They are going to HATE us next week as we are moving house-I'm not looking forward to seeing what punishments they arr going to cook up for us
Big cat shits on my bed when I deviate in anyway from the routine that he has devised for himself. He obviously learned this behavioural technique via osmosis from my former cat who died before big cat arrived here.
Little cat, this week, has perfected turning his back on me pointedly and looking at me in disdain to make sure I'm noticing his back turning. My crime? Buying a different brand of cat litter.
Oh God, this thread has had me doing proper belly laughs! So funny.
My little boy is a fairly docile chap so far, but I see signs of things to come..
Yesterday I got up from the laptop to grab a bottle of wine and a glass. When I came back he had sprawled himself on the keyboard with that challenging "what're you going to do about this then?" look. In the past I've been a wuss and let him stay there but last night I picked him up. put him on the floor and went back to mumsnet work. Well, I knew some form of punishment was imminent.
He waited until I over-filled my glass and had to lean in carefully to sip off the top inch then, I kid you not, he pounced from the dining table onto the back of my head, pushing my face into my drink. Cue jumping up/general noise-making from me.... and the little sod just sat there on the laptop looking at me as if to say, "What???? I just wanted a cuddle! What????"
Am starting to think I maybe should't read this with the kittens about, they might be getting ideas. Black!kitten was peering at the laptop screen & started purring VERY loudly as I read Fermez's post...
