Smarter Than I Thought…

My landlord’s cat (see photo in previous post) is perhaps a bit smarter than I thought. The landlord is out of town, and the cat has finally figured out that I am not going to let it in my room to sleep with me at night (he and the other cat are both barred from my room at all, a fact that bothers them both) while the landlord is away.

So, stinker tried a new tack this morning. He tried to lead me into the landlord’s room in an apparent bid to have me get in bed so he could cuddle/sleep with me like he does the landlord. Dog-like actions with a cat’s arrogance and determination. The logic is fascinating: if he can’t sleep with me in my bed, have me get in the landlord’s bed instead since he is allowed to sleep with/cuddle humans there.

Have to admit, it made me laugh when I figured out what he was trying to do. I’ll give him points for it; but, I declined and instead got ready for work. Cats…

Lucky He’s Cute

I get to share the current lair with some interesting critters — including two cats. They are young, less than a year old, and can make life interesting. In this case, I actually found this violation of the rules (they are not to get on shelves, counters, etc. according to their owner) by one of them amusing.
