Don’t get me wrong, I’m fond of my humans. I’m sure we all are. But that doesn’t make it any less fun to annoy them, just a little bit!
It’s a compliment, in a way. If I thought for one moment they were mean enough to throw me out for being annoying, I’d be on best behaviour.
In fact, I’d probably spend all day hiding.
But I thought I’d share some fun ideas, and see if any of you have some I can try!
I love to run past my Mum as she goes down the stairs, then stop on a stair and scratch my claws on the carpet so she can’t get past.
She does find that annoying! She says it’s like a car that overtakes you and then dawdles in front of you, holding you up.
I wouldn’t know. I don’t like cars. Plus being so small and not having opposable thumbs is a bit of a drawback to driving ambitions.
I used to wake her up when I first got here.
I wanted my food, and there she was, sleeping! How rude.
But this was one of those times when I realised it wasn’t going to work, and the fun wore off. She never fed me when I did that! She just walked past my food, used her litter and went back to bed!
So I don’t bother to wake her up any more.
Everyone knows the sleeping right in the middle of the bed trick. But it’s a classic! Humans do marvel at the ability of even a small cat, like me, to take up almost as much space as a full sized human.
Playing with their shoelaces as they try to tie them up.
Now I hestitated about counting that. It might annoy them, but my primary motivation is simply – STRING!!!
If they choose to tie cat toys onto their feet do they really have any right to complain when we try to play with them?
But I do think it has to be counted as a bonus at least.
What else? Mum doesn’t like when I go on her table. I don’t know why, there are rustly papers there which are quite fun to disarrange.
Sometimes I do that just to get her attention.
I don’t like being ignored!
I am a CAT! Ignore me at your peril. Mrowl!
I think that’s quite a long enough post, even if there are many more annoying things I could mention.
I can’t be bothered now though. It’s time to wash.
Do please share yours though!
