Quality Control

Marmie’s always up to something worth snoopervising. 

Like today, she started cutting with these scissors—a pair I’ve never sniffed before.

Don’t worry, I tested them for quality control.

I was also curious about this new species of paper. 

At first glance, it appeared harmless.

But after further investigation, I decided it was a mutation not to be trusted.

When I spotted a piece atop my scratching post, I knew I must reclaim my territory.

And I most certainly I did.  I ripped that paper to shreds.

But guess what?

There’s even more where that came from.

I think I’ll wait until Marmie goes to sleep.  Then I’ll plan my next method of attack.

Happy Sunday!

Mouse and I are celebrating this day of  rest by lounging in the sun together.

Statue Link

Maybe if I stand really still… 

Like a statue.

I will blend in with Marmie’s desk decor.

And she won’t notice…

The damning evidence.

Interior Decorating

Hello, Marmie.

IMG_3684

Did you have a nice day at work? 

 

I hope you don’t mind– I did some interior decorating in your absence.

 

I think your table

Take a Hint

How many brightly colored objects does it take for Marmie to notice my food bowl is empty?

Food Wars 2011

It’s been a hard knock life for an orange man these days. 

First, Marmie rejected my finest gift.  Then, on Friday, I was stuck in the evil moving death trap for two hours.

I thought things could get no worse.

Until yesterday, when Marmie and Diddy came home with several different varieties of natural, healthy cat food.

ICK.

You see, we’ve been through this before.  Marmie is a health food fanatic, and for awhile there, she was trying to impose her ridiculous food philosophies on me.

But I showed her who’s boss. 

Here’s the secret…when she fed me something I didn’t like.  I simply took one whiff, refused to put a single morsel in my mouth, and acted as if she’d never fed me.

And then– every time she’d get up from the couch, I’d run to where she kept my real food and look up at her expectantly.

I could really make her feel guilty.

 

There was also the trick where I’d start eating her human food.

But that didn’t always have the intended effect.  It just seemed to make her mad.

 

When neither of the above tactics worked their magic, all I had to do was disrupt her sleep.  I’d begin at 3 a.m.:  pawing her in the face, playing with Mouse in the bed, and pouncing on the little piggies that roam beneath her covers.

 

A combination of these methods seemed to work quite well, so I’m surprised Marmie has chosen to continue this fight.

But I’m not worried.  With my handsome good looks, it really is quite easy to get my way around here.

So, Marmie, if this is the way it’s gonna be.  Game on.

The Best Intentions…

This morning was like any other. 

 

Marmie’s alarm went off.

I leapt out of bed.

Marmie let me sit in the sink while she drew on her face.

Marmie fed me dry food.

Marmie scooped the poo from my litterbox.

Marmie let me scratch her couch.

Marmie gave me deets.

<—(deets)

And Marmie let me lounge on her desk as she ate breakfast.IMG_3134 

As I was sitting there, soaking up the heat of the laptop, I thought–

I really am lucky to have such a kind Marmie.

sweet marm

And in that moment, I decided I should do something nice for her.

Perhaps bring her a present?

So I brought her my faaaaaavorite mouse. IMG_3617

And dropped it where she couldn’t miss it.

IMG_3611 

That’s right!  I brought  Marmie my most beloved possession.

IMG_3610

I really can be such a sweet fella.

The thing is—she didn’t appreciate Mouse like I thought she would.

In fact, she called it ‘gross’ and threw it away.

THREW MOUSE AWAY!

Don’t worry, I guilted her into giving it back.  But she insisted on washing it first!

Months worth of cat spit, gone.

Months worth of collected floor dust, gone.

 

All because I wanted to be nice.

 

That’s the last time Marmie will get a gift from me.
