Acting Out

Greyson here. Guess what friends seems I'm not the only cat who acts out when Dad goes away for a couple of days.

I mean sure, I lamed Mom's treating thumb but I was just trying to get my pipe cleaner back. Luckily she totally bought my remorseful face. I mean of course I meant it.

First he climbed the screen door every time  Mom tried to get some fresh air. I mean imagine this move but add about 15 lbs of pussycat....

He can still make it to the top of the screen!

Next Mom was trying to answer the phone and nothing. No sounds. No rings. No nothing. Mr Quillbert McNaughtymon had chewed another phone cord! He repeatedly chewed Mom's Apple phone cord last time and no it was the cordless.

When questioned he agreed it was not as tasty as an Apple. But that did not stop Mr Quillbert McNaughtymon. I really can't get enough of that nickname! Usually he is such a goody-four-paws and a total Momma's Boy.

Of course Mom forgave him and all the scolding he got was the nickname. Sheesh.

Little does Mom know he is anxiously awaiting the iPhone cord replacement's arrival....

  1. The human has a suggestion: Bitter Apple on the cords. It is available in most pet supply stores and tastes terrible. She uses it on her plants.

  7. He chews cords? Weird. And pipe cleaners are so cool.

    I used to be an awesome screen climber, but have not tried any lately. The only screen are on the windows and they are not as fun as door screens.

  9. Our humans had to give up swapping between the screen and the glass on their storm doors. Now they stay glass all year and whiffy air must come in through windows only.

    That phone cord chewing trick is a good one. I think Audrey may give it a try. She has been licking (not chewing yet) the power cord for Mom's Mac laptop.

    as for cords, we mostly leave them alone....though Mo did get his revenge on the computer speaker cords one year when mom dared to go on vacation

  17. Screen door climbing looks like lots of fun. I used to chew cords when I was younger.

  18. Some of us love to climb the screen like that and not only on the door. We do it on the catio as well. The best is to get a running start and land three-quarters of the way up. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
