Floofy Friday

I wanted to thank all my friends for your support on the counter issue. It's so nice to have friends who see things the same way you do. I've begun my Meow Campaign to wear them down on the "No Cats on the Counter" rule guideline.

I've been sitting on the floor and meowing loudly and plaintively at the counter. Surely Mom will cave soon.

In the meantime, my friends at The Katnip Lounge have graciously offered to have their Dad make me a ladder. I think this is an excellent interim solution. It needs to be about one cat wide, and three cats high.

Oh and if it could have wheels that would be so excellent. I've had my eyes on the top of the china cabinet for years. I also have been dying to add a back paw claw mark on the other side of the bedroom dresser. I want to even out the scratch on the other side of the dresser that I left awhile back. I like balance.

Maybe it should be four cats high... with a wide launch pad at the top. Yeah, that sounds good. Luckily they live in my town. How cool is that. If I get in trouble here, I think I could just head over and get in line for the buffet. There are so many of them, maybe no one would notice if I showed up on the catio.

Nah, I don't tend to blend. Now on to the floof!

 
 Is that my ladder? Already? Nope, it was a tweet.


I hope you all enjoy your weekends. It is supposed to cool down, so I am hoping for some Patio Time. See a nice letter or two and the universe is yours.

  1. Maybe you need a CAT-apult as well, then you can be superkitty and fly places!

  4. Come here, Fin. It was under 5C last night. Plenty cool enough, huh?

  5. You know, Fin, you can always come here to visit, where humans' words mean nothing, and where any kitty who wants can hang out on the dining room table, even when humans are eating (well, that only applies with my human's boyfriend. My human actually does not allow it).

  6. I think the ladder is an excellent idea! Besides, that's a silly rule!!!

  7. A ladder will work purrfectly, Fin!! Or maybe a moveable set of stairs....then you can get on top of all sorts of stuff...the counters are only the beginning!!

  8. We like Rumbles idea of a CATapult! It is so cool that the kitties at the Lounge are so close!

  9. I like the idea of the ladder. But your parents should realize they are fighting a losing battle, unless they want to listen to you meow forever.

  11. Finny, I have posted a picture of my ladder on my blog as a possible solution for you.

  12. That ladder sounds excellent. We think we might want one too!

  13. Hahaha! Sorry but we were just visualising you in a Cat-apult.
    She flies through the air with the greatest of ease.

  14. Fin - if you made a recording of your loudest and shriekiest meows and yowls and play it over and over they will surely put you a cushion up there for comfort and a private elevator to save you from jumping up.

  15. Fin,
    We will get Daddy busy designing ASAP. We are thinking lightweight space-age materials, locking caster wheels so you can move (safely) in all directions, with a motorized lift. (battery operated)
    Of course, a custom paint job is included!
    Now, exactly HOW wide is one cat? We have a "wide" variety of widths here...and it all ain't floof, either.
    Height, we can all pretty much agree on.
    Any way...we'll have Mommy work up some drawings for your approval.

  16. Fin, it sounds like you might have a ladder coming that even has wheels. We are going to get you back up on the counter, never fear. We will look into getting you a magic carpet that you could fly around on and just get everywhere you want to be.
    Have a great week end and you look very pretty sitting outside. Glad the letter worked.

  17. Those mockingbirds would be in for a shock if you got your ladder.

  18. We are utterly appalled at what is happening to you, Fin. We are on the counter all the time, and strongly believe that all cats should be!

    We hope you can find a way to foil them!

    Purrs,

  19. With help from the CB (and possibly your mom), you'll find your way back on the counter again.

  20. If you get a ladder, please be careful! One of our kitties gets up on top of the highest kitchen counter by way of the washing machine and then to the refrigerator and up she goes! No idea how she does it but it looks tricky!! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

  21. We think the ladder idea is wonderful!

  22. A ladder is a great idea, but how about a ramp, that would make it much easier to get up and down? Hope you have a great weekend. Who tweeted you?

    ReplyDelete
  23. You have been such an inspiration to all the kittens here. The kitchen counter still is out of reach, but the coffee table is an attainable goal and most of them are going for it.

  24. Fin: you are such the Femme Fatale! I wish I could sit beside you out on the patio--yet I'm not too shure I'm catworthy enough to bask in your effervesence! :)

  25. I just jump directly from the floor to the counters. I don't need a secret way to get there. The lady knows she can't stop me, no way, no how.

  26. We hope you're having a great weekend, and that you were able to get your porch time.

  27. I think you need a feline butler who walks around with a silver dish and uses it as an elevator whenever you need to reach new heights!!

  31. Yeah baby! A ladder would be wonderful. So many intriguing places to explore!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Yeah, that sounds GREAT ... a ladder is a fine idea, indeed!

  33. We could help you get to the counter! We have enjoyed reading your book Fin! It is great to know more about you!

  34. It is every cat's Right to walk on the counter tops.

    I have always longed to walk around on top of our kitchen cabinets, and the Curve perches were the answer to my prayers!

  35. The Meow Campaign...did Elizabeth write you for guidelines, perhaps? I must say the persistent Meow does work ...
