I came home just now to find all the drawers in my chest of drawers open and loud rustling from under the bed. In my absence tomkitten found the stash of Dreamies and helped himself to 55 servings. That's about 400 Dreamies.
The rioja mogs deliver items from the garden and place them in the living room. These items have included large clumps of soil, a used tea bag, dead stuff and occasionally something unidentifiable that smells so bad you can't even guess its origin.
Good job they're cute.
Bright cat. You'll need to raise your game, Fluffy.
Fluffy cat has cottoned on that if needs the loo and he's rampaging around the house shouting so much he gets an ASBO and locked in a room with his tray that I want him to use his tray.
So he scoops the litter into a corner just like he's used it. I let him out and were back to rampaging around the house shouting.
Rinse and repeat.
Mine has just chewed through the brand new fairy lights. She also likes the taste of toothpaste (fresh off the toothbrush when its been rinsed and put back in the holder - ewwwwwww).
Many, many years ago.
As a kitten, Firstcat sometimes got up in the middle of the night to play. One night, my mum had left in the dining room a nearly finished sweater she was knitting together with the last full ball of wool.
She went in the next morning to find that overnight, Firstcat had got in there somehow, been playing with the remaining ball of wool - and had unwound the flipping lot of it by batting it around the room. So there we were, faced by this giant Cat's Cradle - I mean it was horror movie stuff.
Under the firstchair, over the table, under the carving chair, over the carving chair, under the carving chair again, around the sideboard mirror spindle (three times), over the table.............It just went on and on.
And because he was my cat, and because it was the last ball of wool for that sweater, I had to very gently unwind and very gently re-roll every last blessed inch of it.
Took me - hours it must have been !
ErrorCat steals sandwiches, or more specifically, the filling out of the sandwich, leaving you biting into two bits of dry bread.
I came home once to find her digging for gold in my knicker drawer.
I've also found a huge heap of toilet roll piled up on the bathroom floor, still attached to the holder, with claw marks in it where she's using it as some sort of scratchpost/vertical treadmill!
Yesterday I was sewing softblocks (like pointe shoes but without the shank that allows you to go en pointe) ready for starting a 5-day ballet intensive this morning. Left room (& shoes) to use loo & came back in to discover blond!cat carefully picking up the shoe I'd just done then delightedly rolling about on my bed with it & hugging it. I stepped in when his attempts to help soften the box moved on to chewing it. And I'd thought all I had to worry about was the fact pointe shoe ribbons are apparently irresistible to my moglets, even when tucked into/wrapped round the shoes!

NobCat once came in with a mouse, we threw him
And the mouse out, and blocked up the cat flap until he dropped the mouse (our back door is glass, we can see if he has a mouse).
He tried the blocked cat flap a few times, but it only opened maybe an inch, if that. A few minutes later he was back at the door, sans mouse, so we let him back in. He then goes to the cat flap and retrieves the mouse he stashed in the lip of the car flap after we'd chucked him out.
I used to leave a large glass of water on the bedside table every night so i could drink first thing in the morning before getting up. one night I woke up to hear a lapping sound...😸
I used to work from home. regular pacing around the house kept me sane. having topped up with fruit cake (one of those no flour absolutley solid fruit packed ones) and tea, i went for a little lap around the house. came back, no cake. Though DP had eaten it (haveing forgotten he wasn't at home) . So went back for another slice, went for another lap, and came back to find same tinkerbellkat helping himself for a second slice.
That's true Fluffy what a fab game. Her cries are pitiful every single time. DH reckons she could actually get down herself if she thought about it, or even back into the bathroom window. But that's no fun is it?
sparkling, look at it another way, if she gets on the roof mommy gets the ladders out and you play jumping into the basket.
this is more evil genius than naughty, but my cat bought home a mouse the other week and rather than killing and eating it decided to drop it in the pond then sit and watch as it desperately tried not to drown!!
she also regularly helps herself to the wet food sachets from inside a closed cupboard and proceeds to eat them through the foil wrapper. messy!
Catfink isn't the smartest cat (though very very sweet and tolerant) so he tends to do silly rather than naughty things (getting stuck up trees, lost in the next street and crying to be rescued, falling into the bath when trying to fish for my toes.)
His mother, though, was a different proposition. When we went away overnight (leaving food and clean litter) she would express her annoyance by waiting until we got back then pooing in a corner of the bathroom - always the same corner, always within a few minutes of our return. Except for the time she peed in my open handbag instead.
Sparkling Cat is quite sensible on the whole. Except if she jumps out of the bathroom window onto the roof she can't get down.
She knows that, and yet at least once a week she does it.
I have to stand on the stepladders holding the laundry basket so she can jump into it and I bring her down. Every single time.
My cat when I was a kid used to do the tag team get at things on the counter with the dog.
Misty had been found in the wardrobe on top of the hangers!
I once went to get a pair of socks out of my bottom drawer, it had been left slightly open, it was dark outside and my bedside lamp wasn't very bright. I pushed my hands into a nice warm fur.
Misty is also not allowed in the kitchen, she knows this, but unless the door is firmly shut she gets in.
I can currently hear one of my cats outside fighting with next doors cat they fight at the same time every night
I tried to stop them once , I still have the scars .
Most memorable is my cat RaRa , my dsis (12 yo) came round after school with some Scones she had made , she left them in her bag & RaRa stole all of them one by one
Mine cleared off the top shelf of the bookcase and hissed and smacked my hand away when I went to remove her.
Love that website. Ours loves to shove her bum in your face when watching telly. Never at any other time.
I went in the shower the other day and felt something watching me. I looked up and it was the cat, sitting on top of the sliding door mechanism staring at me intently.
I had to do a flip chart presentation for an interview a few years ago. I left it on the floor after working on it all night. I came downstairs the next morning to find my cat's head poking out through a giant hole in the middle of it. i had to re-do it all.
thanks for the link to that website, it's so funny!
Love this thread already and I've just spent bloody ages laughing at the pics on that link!!
Mine wind each other up chronically. If Millie hears Scabbers coming down the stairs she looks at me as if to say "watch this" then crouches down, wiggles her bum in anticipation then pounces! Cue tearing around the place, rolling around like nutcases...
He's just as bad though. Millie is a tortie with a black tail with a white dot on the tip. Can he watch it waving around and just leave it alone? No he can not.
Oh and I've lost several tasty bits of meat, cooked and uncooked when I've foolishly left them alone for five seconds.
Will add mime later
I had a large net sack of Babybel in the kitchen. Got back home one evening to find that Oneago (who adored cheese) had removed it up to the bedroom.
That would be the bedroom with the pale beige carpet.
Which - when I went in the room was studded everywhere with red wax.
I never bought Babybel again.
Ours is banned during that, he stood on the pillow once with a "what ya doing?" Look on his face.
Pretty sure society in general would disapprove of him being actually in bed with us.
