Jake and Bathsheba

A blog by two cats who used to live in the same house in Northern Virginia. Unfortunately, they are both no longer with us.

Thursday Thirteen - Edition Nine

It's a little late in the day, but we couldn't let the day pass without listing

13 Ways We Like to Annoy Mom or Dad:
  1. Beg to be let out by frantically scratching on the sliding glass door only to beg to be let in 30 seconds later. (I gotta keep them on their toes! ~ Jake)
  2. Pee on the grill cover on the deck. (I have to let the other animals know that the deck is MY territory. ~ Jake)
  3. Keep backing up when you're blowing chunks and they want to catch them with a newspaper or paper towel. (Making a mess is part of the deal! ~J&B)
  4. Bite their fingers when they give you tasty treats. (Hey, we're excited, it's nothing personal! ~J&B)
  5. Scatter your kibbles around the floor as you eat. (What can I say? ~Bathsheba)
  6. Beg at the table. (So what's wrong with that? Who can resist my cute face? ~Jake)
  7. Stand really close when they're working in the kitchen. (Just dare them to trip over you. ~J&B)
  8. Scratch on the floorlength mirror in the bedroom to get them to get up and feed you on the weekend. (I don't believe in sleeping in. When I'm hungry, I think my servants should feed me right away. ~Jake)
  9. Lie in the middle of the hall or stairs so they have to step over you to pass. (They're lucky I grace this place with my presence. ~ Jake)
  10. Jump in their laps and purr and snuggle when you know that they were just about to get up and do something else. (They need to keep their priorities straight. Nothing is more important than I. ~Jake)
  11. Hunt birdies. (They SAID that we could go after the starlings. How are WE supposed to know the difference between a songbird and a starling? ~J&B)
  12. Scratch, scratch, scratch and make the fur fly. (Why wouldn't they be pleased with a little cat hair on everything? ~J&B)
  13. Wrestle with each other and let out blood curdling cries. (At least we don't do this as much as we used to! ~J&B)

Maybe some other time we'll list things that Mom and Dad do that annoy US!

Very cool list. I can relate to #13. When LT pounces on Bubbles, he (Bubbles) lets out a scream as if LT is killing him.

Great list! Those are wonderful ways to annoy humans! Sadly, I don't get to hunt birdies - I just get to watch them since I'm in indoor-only cat.

I so identify with number 8.

I've never tried scratching the mirror but I do sit next to HER head and purr very loud or I just cry out..."Raow"

She gets the message.

That's a very good list. I well remember about not sleeping in on the weekends. Of course, once the kitty was fed, I could go back to bed and she didn't care, usually.

Yet if I listed all the things mom does that annoy me. There wouldn't be enough room...lol
