Nawt, lyk, Nawty Barn kittehs! Just badly behaved!
I gots a nawty kitteh story, an I bet peeps has moar. (If you libs wif a kitteh, I preddy sure you gonna has elebenty, rly.)
Otay, so…. Trick are, lyk, 13 yrs old, nawt a spring chikkin, an has a bit of arfritis in hips. Wif teh sooperdooper extreme cold, Jackie been feelin preddy sore, an we wurried bowt Trick. So I used old trick (heehee) an set up swing-arm reeding lamp wif 60-watt incandescent bulb innit to make a warm spot. That were, um, three nites ago. Overnight, it are pointed at my puter chair, which Trick lyks tu sleeps in at nite. Inna day, I swing it rouund to mai bed, so moar space plus I can has chair.
Trick finded it preddy quick, an lyks it!
Then Cory, whylol lyin in that spot onna bed just as I swapped it inna morning, started luukin puzzled coz his back half was getting warm. He figured it out wifakwikness. He lublublubs teh sunnybeems inna summerthyme.
Yesserday, Freya catched on. I can has soooooo many adorable pics of her an Bear negotiating fur sharing teh bed under teh lamp, an even a few of ALL THREE!!!! (*gasp faint*) Dunno hao I gonna choose what to use here…
Last nite, it turned… nawt ugly, but cranky.
Cory-Bear and Freya were owning teh lamp spot at bedtyme, bein so cute that I was finkin of puttin mai pillow at uvver end and letting them be (is just loose top sheet an comforter, is eezy an I duz sumthymes), altho wif Trick on mai lap, I nawt had to decide rite away.
Trick leefed fur litter box. Freya leefed fur noms, onna trunk beside my bed (yep, is crowded, mai bedroom…). I retreeved mai pillow an tried to get unner comforter… Cory got offended cos I was crowding him an HE leefed. Trick come back and get chair and lamp. YAY! I can sleeps, rite? (Yep, I can ignore lamp… yeers of practice.)
Bout 5am, Freya wants unner blankets. Okeedokee, hard to sleep deep wif her unner there coz nawt wanna skwish her, but used to that. At this point, Bear on chair, no sine of Trick. Doze off, just shallow.
Then I hear cranky noises and whappities from chair, and wake up wifakwikness.
Trick trying to share chair. Cory havin nun uv it an whapping him. I reach over to innervene, as much as I can wif not disturbing teh sound-asleep Freya unner teh blankets, an finally get Bear to stop whapping. Trick settles daon on edge of chair, an I start to fink battlol over.
Nope. Bear breaks truce and whaps again! Trick leefs. Nao, we be givin Trick crunchies frekwently coz they halping his tummy stay settled, but to keep Bear an Freya out, this meens 2 dishes of crunchies with lids, and we offer to him very often. He started lookin where crunchies get offered, so since mebbe feelin unhappy tummy, I stretch WAAAY over to get teh crunchie bowl.
Freya gets offended that I disturbed her, and stalks off.
Trick has crunchies an leefs teh room.
Bear got mad at me coz I swinged teh lite away frum him fur being a selfish brat – nawt gonna get away wif keepin teh warms to himself after all that!
Rite nao, wif lamp on bed, Bear an Freya sharin agen, Trick curled up in fave basket, everyone got bellyful uv noms.
Aifinkso mai furry children am slitely spoiled, specially teh Bearkitten… pawsibly a lil…
These lamps nawt so cheep as tehy used tu be, but mebbe I gonna has to track daon nuvver one! Or elebenty! Nawt sure I nawt gonna get pee in mai shoos if I turn it off soon as cold snap ends!
Okay, sooo… you can has nawty kittehs? Rite? I nawt only wun?January 7, 2018 at 09:02 #52959

A short one:
Foster-luvlee gray baby, I miss my Bubba. When I lived in town I kept the cat food under the sink. Because Pip & Duffy had figured out how to open the door I had put heavy rubber bands between the door knobs. I had the food in a rubbermaid tub. Sometimes when I got the food the lid would be off the tub. I would just think I did it and didn’t remember. I was sitting at the kitchen table one day and in comes Foster. He went over to the cabinet and pushed his head slowly into the rubber banded door, he looked funny with his face all squished back, then next thing I know he’s in the cupboard! I opened the door, he had pushed the lid off and was sitting in the tub, eating the food!January 15, 2018 at 13:34 #53063
Josie, my darling Josephine, she never was naughty. ok maybe a little but she was so cute at it all I ever did was take pictures.
and this isn’t a naughty story anyways but an anecdote I guess.
In the same kitchen opposite the sink featured in the last story was my great-grandma Caruso’s Hoosier. I fed Josie on the table top part of the Hoosier. I fed her there so Pip and Duffy (and then Foster) couldn’t eat her food. When she wouldn’t finish her food I would put her dish in the top drawer of the lower part of the Hoosier. Sometimes I’d open the drawer and the dish would be empty. Again, I figured I was just forgetful. Until one day sitting at the table I watched her open the cabinet door under the Hoosier and climb upon the shelf in there-the side of the drawer was not complete to the top and she was going in there and eating her food while it was in the closed drawer. Then she’d get out and the door would shut behind her and I’d be none the wiser.
PS Foster watched her do that ONCE and then I couldn’t keep her food in there anymore.January 27, 2018 at 09:14 #53449
here’s fun. try transplanting the not-dead-yet house plants from a sympathy basket arrangement with not six furry assistants.January 27, 2018 at 15:48 #53450
I can imagine the fun with horticultural kittehs. One of my pastimes is fly fishing. I *used* to tie all my own flies. It got so bad I had to quit. If I locked myself in a room they would just scratch at the door until I relented. Can you imagine kittehs with fur, feathers and thread? Plus I worried about them around the small hooks.January 29, 2018 at 06:14 #53471
yep amazing how many activities either not done or done behind closed doors while the darlings sing you the song of their peoples.February 19, 2018 at 12:54 #53763

Got nothing to offer on teh goggie issues except sympathies, I afraid. I can do kittythink but nawt goggiethink. But congarats on teh mortgage getting all paid off, and I keepin fingers crosst for things like gettin stuff sorted out with the ferals and all.
My heart-kitty Loki were a multi-polydactyl, two extra thumbs each hand, and he had a nextra claw down in teh space between teh thumbs and teh rest. I clipped it periodically coz vet warned me it could grow around into his foot otherwise, but it were no big deal, rly, just had to gently press on claw so it came forward so I could reach it ravver than tryin to clip in a very narrow spot.

A silly Trick-tail…
2 fings you need to gnow:
1) Trick lyks to drag shoolaces, earbuds, dressy scarfs, kitteh toys, an nao n then uvver things around, with a very specifik yell he duz
2) Jackie duin teh gardnin fing onna balkonee, in buckets an pots
Jackie been addin wurms, big fat earfwurms, to her soil so tehy aerate it an can eat ennyfing that dies.
Well… cupple days ago, Trick came in offa balknee makin hims gotta-string yell. We hadda puzzled, coz, no strings on balknee, rite? Then he dropt it onna kitchin floor an lukked daon an his string was wriggling! He were fassinated bai it an ravver annoyed that we taked it away an put it back inna pot.
Tuday Jackie did moar gardin stuff then came inside… an twice had to go back onna balknee coz she heard Trick yellin, an boff times, he had anuvver wurmie. Cannawt tell which pot tehy comed from, so she hadda guess, mebbe is nao pot wif no wurms.
Iz ennywun’s guess hao he findin teh wurmies.May 18, 2018 at 05:36 #55840

Furst Happy Gotcha Day 2012 handsome Steve and my lost boy Seamus. *Sob,Sniff,Sob some more*
Sekint Last week a work friend finally told me that when she took Casey to Rochester for a doctor’s appointment last year that he told her that he found Seamus in the road dead and he buried him. WTFBBQ????? Now why would he say that to her if not true? I really was a stupid woman for almost 25 years. I might hold the Guinness record.
Thurd I finally found out who is doing the inappropriate peeing-ROSIE-I saw her today. I had a wooden dryer rack on the floor folded up so it looked like 2 squares and as I was going into the kitchen I saw her get in one of the squares and squat and PEE. Must be she wasn’t done because she went into my bedroom and I had a pair of shoes sort of lined up but about 10 inches apart and she finished peeing between them! I have always left the door to the boxes room closed so they go through a cat-sized opening but I wonder if she’s been ambushed there before. So I left the door open and we’ll see what happens next.August 7, 2018 at 10:39 #57838
I think the record is his, for utter lack of empathy and sheer malice. That’s appalling and unforgivable. I think it’s really common for people to refuse to see some things about peeps they’ve made a central part of their life, because it’s easier than rebuilding one’s entire life.
With Rosie: usual inappropriate peeing causes: UTI causing pain that they then associate with a place so they keep trying to find a different location, or stress associated with the litter box, or other cats not allowing her to use it. Usual rule suggests one box per cat plus one, spread out to make territoriality harder, but then, I have 3 cats and two big storage-bin boxes side by side and it works because there’s no conflicts. Your horde do have some inter-kitty personality issues, and it could be that one or more of the others is crowding her or intimidating her. The UTI would be the simplest to ID and fix. :/ Good luck!
But happy Gotcha Day!
