I think everyone could use a few good laughs to start your week off.
We cats notice a lot more than people think we do. Like when the humans come back from the grocery store with something in their bags that smells suspiciously like treats, and they act all relaxed and non-chalant, like there’s only boring stuff in there and try to slip the treats out and hide them without us noticing. YEP. That’s right- we notice. Even when we are sleeping in the other room.
We also notice that most people hate Mondays like we cats hate the vacuum cleaner. With that in mind, I decided to try to lighten things up a little for you guys by sharing some of the Can Opener’s favorite comics. I hope you enjoy them and get yourself a warm spot in the sun and take a nap. If it’s good for cats, it’s good for humans.
Sit down, Human. Sushi and I had a talk and you need to listen.
Now, We waited all day for you to take time with us- and you didn’t have to go anywhere, but you still didn’t take time to play with us! You cleaned our ears (a BIG NO-NO)- you put flea treatment on us -(a BIGGER NO-NO),… and although you cuddled us and fed us treats, you STILL didn’t play with us!
You read, you cleaned, you cooked, washed laundry, washed dishes, and you took care of us, but when we wanted you to stop everything and keep us playing, you didn’t. And then, you kept going back and forth to your sister’s house all day long, leaving me and Sushi wondering just what the flea was going on. So the last time you left to go there today, I followed you- (yes, that’s right)… and I watched through the window as you played with HER CAT! PSYCHO SHEBA! What the flea??
You say you were there because her human had a painful surgery Friday and she needed help. But how was it helping her to feed Sheba and play with HER? Hmmm? I HEARD you two laughing and I saw Sheba chewing on the phone charger while you and her human laughed and YOU EVEN TOOK PICTURES OF HER!
Now, you did take time to spoil us and play with us when you finally got back home -(after I almost turned into an icecicle waiting out on the banister for you to get done and come home), but it wasn’t enough. We think you need to revisit your priorities, and buy more treats. Right, Sushi?
*Rolls eyes* Nevermind.
(Sushi): Oh. What’s right? (Twilight): Just forget it.
I was going to do a post to make you guys smile this morning, but Sushi is getting on my VERY. LAST. NERVE. I saw her laying on the rug and swiped at her to let her know I wanted to play and she HISSED at me and smacked me with her tail- so I smacked her back. And she smacked me back. And I smacked her back again.
I’m calling this post “Monday Mischief” because I plan on getting into a lot of mischief today.
It’s time to have some flipping FUN!
Why get into mischief? I don’t know. Probably because I’m a cat and I feel like it. But mainly because it’s cold and has been raining so much that everything outside is all muddy and I don’t like getting mud on my paws just to go out and run wild for a while. I keep trying to play with Her Grumpiness (Sushi)- but she just grunts and swats at me, and then I get upset and swat the holy heck out of the big whale.
So then I start playing with everything I can find- lucky for me the Can Opener likes to play- only she’s not so crazy about my claws locking onto her when we wrestle. And I’m not crazy about getting my claws trimmed.
But this is why I love the pink thingie- there’s ribbons, and beads, and sparkleys and it’s so much fun! And, it doesn’t yelp when I sink my claws into it!
Well, my tummy’s growling now- time for dinner and my nightly grooming with the Can Opener! My favorite part of the day!
Was there a horrible catastrophy? No. Did someone get hurt? No. But it was still a terrible, awful, miserable Monday. Why?Because we are CATS and it was raining all day long and every time we tried to go outside and chase the squirrels that were taunting us from the tree branches, we got soaked. And cold. Very cold!

So since the Can Opener simply refused to serve us popcorn (or treats) while we watched the squirrels and birds taunting us, we decided to do the only thing any cat in his right mind would do… sleep!
