Fish strikes again

filkferengi asked about the cats, which reminds me that I've been meaning to write a couple of posts on them. First up is another devil Fish action.

A week ago Friday around 11:30 PM, I'd finished packing for Denver and had settled into bed with a book. Fish wandered through the room, and shortly thereafter I hear this tink-tink of ceramic on tile. I (correctly) deduced that he had jumped on the bathroom counter and was shoving Agatha's food dish around a little--figured he was after either a bug or some small food fragment that had dropped on the counter. Seemed harmless...until he knocked the bowl off the counter and it shattered.

Cleaning up ceramic shards and vacuuming the bathroom floor and throw rug was not what I wanted to do at 11:30 PM. And the food dish was a very pretty one with a matching water bowl that I'd found at Target--I really liked that bowl. A quick trip to the local Target Saturday morning was fruitless, but then I found a replacement at the SuperTarget in Denver. In fact, I bought 2, in the hopes of staving off another breakage. In a more practical secondary effort, the new bowl now rests on a rubber mat, greatly increasing the coefficient of friction between bowl and counter.

When you expressed some anger, you forgot to mention the wide-eyed "who, me?" look he most likely gave you, along with the "mew" protesting total innocence.

It's a cat thing. ;)

Actually, I screamed "FISH!!! !@#$ you!!!", and he ran from the scene. He came back while I was picking up the bigger shards to see if perhaps that was something edible I was finding on the floor--I suspect, being a Cat of Very Little Brain, that he really didn't associate the mess with his previous actions. But when I said "BAD cat!", he left again and stayed away longer. He finaly reappeared with a feather-onna-stick toy as a peace offering...

How funny that he brought you a peace offering...er, mmm, I guess we shouldn't be laughing, since you were forced to do KP duty during sleeptime (g). Our cat Fidel, who actually looks quite a bit like Fishk, is such a bug that he has earned the names The Little Rat or Ratty Cat. His special toy? His sister Inca, upon whom he pounces freely and with no holds barred. The neighbors probably wonder who exactly in our household I'm yelling at: "You little RatCat! Get OFF of her!"

Errata
The quote was meant to be "You little rat!" since the addition of "cat" would have rendered any questions moot (g).
