Washing dishes with a cat:
Walk to the sink.
Get back up after tripping on Cat.
Explain to Cat that you are not here to fix Cat food.
Add soap to water.
Explain to Cat that you are still not here to fix Cat food.
Pick up dish.
Explain to Cat that this is not a Cat food dish.
Explain to Cat that water is a substance foreign to his nature and might be dangerous.
Sprinkle water on Cat to make your point.
Put clean dish on drying rack.
Look down to see that Cat has returned, looking for food.
Repeat steps 7 through 13 until all dishes have been cleaned.
!!! Sounds exactly like life in my home with Miss Lilly. She thinks the whole kitchen is there just for the purpose of feeding her.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.“
It's just as bad when I make a sandwich for my husband's lunch. As soon as my fuzzy butt hears the paper from the sandwich meat package he thinks it's time for his treat. My own fault though as I usually give him a little taste.
Have any of you tried giving your cat "Bonito". It is paper thin dried fish. My cat is addicted to it. My husband has accused me of creating a "bonito junkie" out of the cat. I can't get the stuff out of the can fast enough - he is shoving his paw or his head in to get to it quicker. He's so darn cute.
How about - why making your cat unhappy is NOT good:
Travel to strange new place with cat
Cat does not like strange new place
Cat HOWLS for hours
You cannot sleep
Lock cat in bathroom (at least it muffles the howls)
Feel sorry for cat (you fool!) - place litter and water bowl in bathroom
Awoken by crash in bathroom
Cat has spilled water and covered himself with it and then hidden in the litter pan
Clumping litter has solidified into concrete on cat's paws and tail
Force struggling cat to stand in warm water in the sink to loosen litter
Spend one hour (in the middle of the night) picking litter clumps off cat
Try to sleep
Spend next 2 days (until cat has bm) worrying if cat has swallowed clumped kitty litter which is now creating an expensive intestinal blockage
Decide never to leave home with cat again
