litter mates

last night karl walked into the bathroom, started cracking up and told me it was my turn to clean the litter box. this is what i saw:
okay fine, it was hilarious. and gross. kind of like borat. notice that "dad's" toothbrush is entirely buried and mine, as it had been recently used, got the extra crunchy sprinkles on top.
here is the wonder-cat surveying her damage and checking in on the clean-up crew.through uncontrollable laughter and squeals of "eeeewwww, grooooosssssss" this kitteh got an unconvincingly stern talking to. i suppose it was bound to happen sooner or later. our (former) toothbrushes hung in a toothbrush/toothpaste suction cup holder thingie on the big bathroom mirror over the sink. this alone is a recipe for disaster. toothbrushes = dangley, dangley (to a cat) = fair game, suction cup = not very strong, over sink = over cat box (with sink obstacle), extra crap in litter = crap gets buried. the really funny part in all of this is not that she knocked our toothbrushes down (she has already thrown away my glasses and contacts several times since the waste basket is on the other side of the back of the toilet, which was my favorite spot for putting them. i have become accustomed to checking over our trash can in the mornings.) the part that just kills me is that she buried them. ah, so funny.
lily always tries to "make up" by acting extra cute--we weren't even mad at her about this, it was just too ridiculous. now, if i can just figure out how to keep her off of the kitchen counter and the stove, but that is another story.

oh yeah, and Happy Turkey Day!

I didn't have to read all the way down to see if she's a bengal as I've been drooling over them for years! When I moved to Thailand I tried to acquire one but it was just not to be.

No matter, I've now go two lovely American Shorthairs, each with their own quirky personalities. They twittle and squeak their way through the day, making excellent companions for those who work at home.

OH Lily way to go to bury the beans toothy stuff. My litter box isn't anywhere near where mum uses her toothy stuff. But I do like checking out the little wastebasket for anything that might be of interest.

oh yes, part of the cat code of conduct is that you have to act super cute right after doing something naughty! MeiLin does it all the time. She does this little chirp meow early in the morning which lets me know she is doing something jumping on top of doors (yes doors!). She acts cute while she's doing the naughty

My girl is constantly throwing away my contacts.... part of me always says I should just move the trash can, but then where would they end up if not in the trash can?

how to keep a cat of the stove? a)put a small soda can with 8 pennies at the edge so she startles herslef when jumping up.
b)get a sprat bottle and squirt her. After a while she will stop, scrunch up her face waiting for the water and jump anyway.
Counters are a no win situation espeically with her reputation.
And yes, the cone is VERY funny. Try a cone on a Maine Coon and keep a straight face. Can'
t done.

Problem with the spray bottle is that Tigerlily loves to play in the water, full on, head-soak, play. So spraying her with water doesn't phase her. Neither do loud noises, like motion activated buzzers, or the pennies/can trick. We just yell at her and tell her she's naughty...then apologize and say we love her and pet her and play with her...It's a win-win in her eyes!
