Naughty? You decide

Firstly, mommy is holding me on her lap and squeezing my meaty little sides and my back legs.  She keeps saying "Scrumptious!  I could eat you up for supper".    "Look how tender and meaty you are!" And she squeezes my leggies and sides some more.  I am feeling a bit uneasy.

But on to the decision I ask of you.  Mom finally put Admiral's Cat Sitter DVD into the player and I saw it on the TV screen.  I was fascinated.  Mom thought "good!" BUT after she went to get a chair for me to sit comfortably at screen level, I stood up to get those rats that were teeming around on the screen.  I put my arms out...momma put me on the floor lest I knock over the TV. I STILL tried to get them.  Momma could see I was assessing if I could jump up.  That did it and the TV went off.  I stayed and stared for half an hour.

This morning Mom was watching the news and there was a piece about all the hundreds of hummingbirds this man has at his house (and all of his feeders).  I was fascinated and started to make that leap.  Mom turned the TV off but I KNEW they were still there!  I searched all around the bottom of the furniture unit that held the TV and in as many places as I could get to.  I had just gathered my leaping muscles into a bunch to leap to check behind the TV when she tried to distract me.  Kitties, not even Silvervine took me away from my sentinel for those birdies.

Personally I don't think I'm naughty.  I am just trying to hunt.  Mom doesn't really think I am either but it's easy to see that she'll have to be careful what I watch or that TV will be in pieces on the floor.

Oh, here it is, and I am presently watching Public TV children's shows.  I LOVE kid shows.  And you can see the primitive pair of cats on one shelf and the wooden cat curled up on several books on another shelf.  There is a golden panfer head on top in the middle wif green eyes and the cat fairy.  Is this a cat oriented house or what?

  3. So far, none of us have shown the TV much interest. But then again, there weren't any rats or hummingbirds showing.
    Maybe your Mom could mount the TV onto the wall instead? Then you can watch TV and your Mom doesn't have to worry about sweeping up TV pieces. :)

  4. Well, goodness! What are you supposed to do when you see all that good stuff?? Perhaps your mommy should hold you up to it so you can see that it's just for watching, and that there's nothing to grab, darn it all!
    Star only watches bears on tv, she loves them! Leo doesnt watch anything, but I did catch him starting to peek at some nature program once.. just just once.

  5. Sweet Katie there is NO way you could ever be naughty. You just like chasing things and those birds looked like they would be fun to catch. Hugs and nose kisses

  6. You are certainly not naughty.

    Mom has thought about one of those flat tvs but has visions of somecat tipping it over. if she does she says she is gonna have to figure out how to anchor it somehow. not that we pay much attention to the tv....

  7. You aren't naughty Katie, you're just a mighty hunter and know there are things inside that TV. We hope you don't knock it over though!

  12. Well, there is only one solution to this problem, Katie - your human needs to figure out how to fix down that TV so there is no way you can knock it over!

    Naughty? I think not! You are merely inspiring innovation in your human.

  16. NEVER could you be naughty, Miss Katie! Is there some not-too-ugly (and inexpensive) way your Mom could secure the TV? That way you could watch your shows all you want!

    Mommy says what about a couple of black rubber bungees over the base and through where the DVD player is? That wouldn't be to obtrusive and your Mom could criss-cross them for extra "holding" power. Our TV is wall-mounted for a reason! ;)

  17. Well, Katie - you were only doing what most of us kitties would do -= hunting for tasty little hummingbirds. I might have done the same thing, cept that I'm basically lazy so I wouldn't try as hard as you do. He he - we always laugh at what you do because you are so smart and always one step ahead of your human!!

  18. Well all I’ll say, Katie, is that you are one intelligent kitty. I’ll let you in on a secret .. Austin doesn’t even notice the TV!!! Shock horror!! lol

  19. You are naughty AND nice Katie! And that is truly by far a more attractive/distracting/interesting mix than nice , nice , nice!!! :p

  23. Hehehe...I love squeezing boys' soft tummies and meaty thighs :-)
    Sounds like you are mighty hunter, Katie san! If that DVD is on, you may knock over TV someday..haha. But how great you enjoy kids show. It makes me smile to imagine you sitting on the TV and watch kids show :-)

  24. And what your human thinks that your entertainment is not worth the cost of a new TV - cheapskate!

  25. Not naughty at all, Katie.

  26. Mai mom is very impurressed by the obvious lack of dust. xxoo Bhu

  27. Don't worry about those things that Mom was saying. Believe me, that is just typical Mom stuff! :-)

    Wanting to jump up at the TV to get that good stuff doesn't really make you naughty, but it wasn't the wisest decision you've ever made. :-) Sometimes kitties get over-enthusiastic.

    We have some cat related things around the house. I've already put one or two photos of it on Flickr.

  28. Those TV shows shouldn't be so realistic!

  29. You are a true hunter, Katie, and so smart! Our beloved Tabitha liked to watch television. She didn't get so excited, though.

    I think your mommy should seriously consider having your television installed on the wall so you can't knock it over.

  30. Now how could you...sweet Katie...be naughty?? Your mom is mistaken.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Cutie pie Katie, you're not a naughty gurl. You're just doing what's natural fur a kitty, hunting birdies and rats.
    Mom may haf to mount the TV on the wall.

  32. Definitely not naughty! But very nice!

  33. Well honey, of course you are a little naughty! That's why I luffs you so much!

    But this time, your Mommy is completely in the wrong!! First, she pulls out a DVD designed to get you all a-cited and then she decides you shouldn't BE all a-cited!! This is a good example of why the Human should not be running the world. Things were SOOOOOO much better back in ancient Egyptian times when they WORSHIPPED us and we ran things.

    What your Mommy should do is screw that little puppy down so tight Godzilla couldn't move it and then let you have at it. Meanwhile, she could buy some live rats and set them loose in the house for you. How about THAT, Mommy?!?! The TV getting knocked over doesn't sound like such a big deal NOW, does it???

  34. You are NOT naughty, you are a kitteh andn that's what kitties DO!

    Keep trying, we're rooting for you!!

  35. I like to watch the teebee. Sometimes I even get skaired of a noise, and Mom and Dad have to pet me. :)

  36. Sweetest Katie, we think you might be too smart fur your own good! Sounds like you need a very challenging toy or game. Have you got one of those games that makes you work at gettin the treats out?

    ReplyDelete
  37. Well of course you were trying to hunt all those mousies and birds, etc......all that movement is hard to resist on the TV! That's why I like kiddies programs AND human sports stuff like baseball and football....lots of things to keep our attention! BUT you do need to be careful because TVs can bite back! If it falls on you - EEEEK! Be careful Katie but enjoy TV watching. It's fun!

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  38. Be careful Katie - we don't want to hear the sad tale of a flat kitty.

  39. We don't think you are being at all naughty. Kitties are supposed to chase birds and anything else that moves.
    Sorry Mom had trouble putting a comment on our blog. We see she made it though. Whooo Hooo
