when i hear big crashes coming from some other room and when i go to investigate can find no evidence of what has happened (nor any cats in sight)
or the time i found a dollar hidden under one of the rugs they often sleep under in the back bedroom (a place i never carry money to); as if they were saving up for some grand escape
or the time i was doing dishes and i kept hearing a cat zooming by behind me to head down into the basement~times about seven~i ventured down the stairs a couple of times and didn’t see where they had gotten themselves off to (and i had never heard the corresponding bells on their collars indicating they had come back upstairs). It was if they were having a little feline bash in some secret corner of the basement and had invited all their pals (just run by real fast and she’ll never know the difference…)
when i went into the back room and stumbled on the rug where i found a couple of dollars hidden underneath it, as if they were plotting their escape.
the time Katushka managed to sneak out of the house and i didn’t notice until a cat that “looked exactly like her” came up to the window
similar to the time i came home and the two stray cats who “looked exactly like” Katushka and Dixie were loitering on my porch with the door wide open
or when i ignored Katushka when she was begging for her supper and so she decided to open the front door and go out and find her own
the times they hide my car keys from me just to make me think i’m losing my mind (is it possible i’m giving them to much credit?)
and the eternal question: do cats purr if there is no one around to hear them?
and if they can do all this why can’t I train them to do housework???
Anyway, back to the book…
most of these are taken from the website of the same name and include all sorts of pets
for the animal lover (perhaps even animal hater) in all of us… Always good for a laugh, or two…
