I was dozing on the lounge quite happily tonight. Oberon decided to climb the screen on the window behind the lounge. Screen fell down, much mayhem ensued and that stupid cat FELL ON MY HEAD! It is not so amusing to be woken by a FAT cat falling on your head

For you. Fat cat on head not good.
Silly cat. How undignified.

Both he and Ariel are the MOST unco cats I have ever met. Ariel will jump on a table and fall off.

Lao is 20yo, and she does not fall off tables - she expects me to catch her and provide assistance should she fall short of the distance.

Must be a family trait.....Tetley is pretty unco too. Doesn't seem to matter where she's aiming for, she always lands on my feet or legs. With her claws out

I'm telling you, he's not a clumsy cat, he's a fairly agile, climbing-talented weimeraner.
Nimbus and Grue don't fall off anything. Grue likes to get put up on top the wardrobe but she wants to be lifted up and carried down, if left up there she paces back and forth merping and sobbing. (Once I coaxed her down with her favourite snack and she made, finally, the BRAVE AND FEARLESS leap from wardrobe to bed my old cat could have made at 17 years old - a good half hour of histrionics later).
And Nimbus is too fat and lazy to climb much, he's happier on the floor with the crumbs.

Lol, I untangled Storm from his mad panic inside the linen cupboard this morning. Now he's sulking under the bedside cabinet and there's cat hair all over my towels.

I thought for a moment this was going to be a critique of the character... *sigh* disappointed again, will no one ever discuss Shaekespeare on this site?

I'm sure that the pet ladies would love to discuss Shakespeare with you!

Mind you, did you see that dreadful typo in my post? Lol
Posted 25 December 2012 - 12:35 AM
Yes I noticed the typo lol.
I had Oberon and Ariel (who stayed with me) and Titania, Puck and Portia. Portia and Titania were renamed.
And now Ariel is an idiot too. I was wrapping presents. She pushed the tree over. ON TOP OF ME. Then the star fell off and hit me.
I hate cats.

Sorry to hear your kitties are being naughty.
Mine occasionally swats a low hanging bauble, but thats about it. She had more fun with the wrapping paper this morning.
Anja was soooooo well behaved. When we first put it up, she wandered over for a look, at which point I used my 'warning' voice "What are you doing over there?", next moment I am being smothered in puppy love. She's pretty much given it a wide berth ever since. Clever puppy!
Its a bit wet here, and cold. So cat has been claiming my lap. She is waiting for turkey (DH is cooking it - smells darn good from here). Dogs are outdoors and enjoying a cool day. And their Christmas bones.
DD is zooming around on her new scooter, and is well impressed with her stash. She asked for books and boy, did she get a lot of books.
