No, Mom...no I'm not.

I simply have my arms under the rug you placed here for me to scratch along with every OTHER surface you have bought and placed throughout the house (that was mommy writing there, NOT me!! STOP IT MOMMY!)

So, I slid my arms under there and I am resting my chin on the folded up rug edge.  What's that you say?  You heard scratching all the way in the computer room?  You must have been delusional dreaming when you heard that or thought you did, Mom.  Who could possibly be scratching?  ME?  I beg your PARDON!?!

I am simply lying here, arms under the rug.  I am keeping my muscles, pawsies and sinews warm.  Why is that a problem, Mom? Scratching?  Pardon me?  ME?  Can't you see my chin?  It is RESTING atop the rug edge while I warm my arms.  *flexes toesies by mistake* Oh.  THAT sound?  Um, that is, um, I fink that is, um, yes, that's um, that's the clock ticking loudly again.  I want to tell you about that.

Take my arms out?  You're going to lift the rug off them...what?  to see what, did you say?

Oh, THOSE marks and tears?  The pet sitter did that.  I wouldn't scratch the carpet, mommy.  I a good girl.

Your Mommy is sillypants! Naturally you are subduing the Monsters that reside under every throw rug. Not Scratching! As if.

Katie, you little dickens! :-) anyway, your Mom got a great photo of you!

Nellie said...

Oh, my! Miss Katie, what stories are you telling about the pet sitter?!:-) Be sweet! xo

You are doing nothing wrong Katie ;)

Just because your mom didn't think of sticking her arms under the rug to stay warm doesn't mean she has to be a spoilsport for you. Sheesh! Clearly the pet sitter thought of it too since she marked up the carpet underneath.

Cathy Keisha said...

I saw some dog at the house trashing pawty doing that! OMC! I can't believe your Mommy is blaming you.

Beth said...

Sweet Miss Katie, it is your right and privilege to keep your paws warm! xx

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

You are just kneading the carpet into submission - that's all!

Eileen said...

We has some of that going on at our house too! The paw warming stuff that is, MOL

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

OF COURSE you are just warm those arms. You have to keep them nice and toned and flexible for all that hugging your Mommy seems to love so much. Honestly, she is sooooooo suspicious! Also, she needs to get her hearing checked!

Jenn said...

Yes, the pet sitter. Hehe!

meowmeowmans said...

Um, maybe that happened by accident during the house trashing party?

The Island Cats said...

We can't believe she would even think of accusing you of doing something bad, Katie. What is she thinking???

Prancer Pie said...

That pet sitter of yours is a real rascal! MOL!

Terri said...

Katie, Katie, Katie...There are some things mommies just know!

dArtagnan Rumblepurr/Diego Hamlet Moonfur said...

BAD pet sitter!! She needs to go to bed without tuna.

Anonymous said...

Moms are SO suspicious of stuff aren't they Katie? You look purrrfectly innocent there with your chin resting on the carpet....how could she think you're up to mischief??????

Kitty Hugs, Sammy

Oh, Katie, sometimes humans make it hard to just be a cat, don't we? I scold Chloe Jo for things like that, and of course she tries to blame Stella. She says dogs are naughty.
~xo~

Selina said...

I feel your pain, Katie. I claw our carpet downstairs (mostly around the bottoms of the walls), especially in the mornings for some reason no one understands. I mean, what's a cat to do?! Of course there are scratching posts but ...

Well it's all about "textures" isn't it? At least, that's MY story.

Purrz!

Hannah and Lucy said...

Your Mom will have to stay home more if the mat keeps getting lonely and beats itself up.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Jacque said...

LOL I enjoyed this post! Such fun!

William said...

Caroline is sure you were just grooming the carpet, Katie. She does the same thing and has no idea why our mom is not more appreciative of her efforts!

Peaceful said...

thanks for the chuckle :)

Tamago said...

LOL! Of course that was your baby sitter who did all the marks and tears! The rug makes a very good chin resting spot. You are so smart! I love the picture - so cute :-)

Photo Cache said...

at least you didn't get yelled at. the humans scream when they see scratches on the carpet :) they don't see who did it (buster).

The Furries of Whisppy said...

What a cheeky pet sitter! Was it because we didn't let her partake in the house trashing pawty? Heehee.

ANGEL ABBY said...

That little spot of carpet was calling your name right Miss Katie? We understand we get calls like that too from time to time.

*hugs*

LP said...

Obviously you are suffocating all the bugs under the rug Katie! Your Mama is thick as a brick! Got to connect all the dots there for her....

Welcome home to you Mom, and we hope she had a good trip!

the critters in the cottage xo

Random Felines said...

that's her story and she is sticking too it MOL

Marg said...

Oh Katie we know that pet sitter did that. You are entirely innocent. Have a great day.

Pattyskypants said...

Katie, that's the easy way out. There are much better things to scratch than under-carpet spots.

Brian said...

Hey, we have a defective rug here too, maybe that's it...defective!

Angel Keisha said...

Wow, can u ride the magic carpet?

Oui Oui said...

Oh, sweet Katie, we KNOW you would never do anything like claw and scratch at night. You are as sweet and innocence as Oui Oui.

PS, we thought your post was lovely, and all your own. Its ok to channel an inner Oui Oui occasionally.

We're with you. ALWAYS hide what you are doing (or at least try to).

And we will fall back on one of the ORIGINAL RULES. "If they bring it into the house, it is yours to use"!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Your Mom said the Admiral might come down the Sparkly Paff to visit me tonight. I'll be UTB waiting for her!

Oh, and do try not to be such a naughty girl, Katie ;-O

Flynn said...

Of course you are not scratching Katie! Anycat can see you are just keeping your arms warm. Cat sitters are always doing things to get us in trouble.

Laila and Minchie said...

Scratching? No way! It's just another way to keep feets warm.

Kea said...

Ha! Yes, I'm sure you're as good as my Nicki is, Katie. :-p

Thanks for stopping by. Things will be chaotic at our end very soon. But with, I deeply hope and pray, excellent results. Please, Universe, make it so! :-)

That's the cutest little rug that we think was obviously bought and put there for you to do with what you like. Obviously. Because obviously, you wouldn't do anything too obviously bad, right? We didn't think so either. Sending obvious purrs....

Kjelle Bus said...

Of course it was the pet sitter that scratched on the carpet !!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Happy almost-Halloween my sweet girl! I hope you are getting ready for a day full of treats and no tricks....well, okay, maybe one trick. If it's not tooooo naughty.

Katz Tales said...

Is there a toy under there? or a snizzle circle? May we come and paw?

Old Kitty said...

Gorgeous Katie Isabella!!! You are so innocent!! The scratches were there already! Yay! LOL!!

Take care
x

Austin Towers said...

Scratching???? As if!! Your mommy needs to see a opthal .... opt ...... eye doctor!! ;) xox

SquirrelQueen said...

How could your mommy accuse you of such a thing? You are sitting quietly, warming your legs and paws and resting your chin and nothing else. Moms here scratchy sounds and they accuse us, how dare they.

Kitties Blue said...

How strange. We believe we see some kind of cat scratcher implement very close by. Possibly placing that atop the little throw rug would be an appropriate measure. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
