Cat Story: Need I say more?

{another old blog repost} This is one of my favorite cat stories.

Today I worked from home! A real *treat* for me. My constant companion “Tempo” the black and white mutt cat was not a good coworker.

Mid morning I was craving “Kraft” Mac n’ cheese. Before we debate if mac n cheese is even a real food product… it was raining, I was hungry and it sounded really good!

So I prepared the powdery goodness and placed it on the kitchen table. I then went and got my laptop, remember I WAS working! As I made my way back to the kitchen I heard slopping coming from the kitchen. I rounded the corner and witnessed a massacre of my comfort food by a feline. To add insult to injury when I shrieked with horror he raised his normally pristine white face to reveal a ring of bright orange cheese sauce hanging from his face and whiskers.

I had to eat a “fake meat” sandwich for lunch since there was no more mac n cheese. I was not happy.

After settling back into my computer work my back started to ache. I decided to get my favorite heating pad to ease my pain. I heated it up. I laid it on the bed. I went to get my laptop.
This is what I saw when I returned. {That’s him cuddling up with my heating pad}

It’s a good thing I love this cat.

  • LOL! No cats were harmed in the making of this post {even if I did have evil thoughts}!

  • lol! That is hilarious! I had a cat,but he got sick a couple of days before I had the baby. He left 6 days after I had the baby,and he never returned 🙁 He was like a baby,he would let us swaddle him like a newborn. One time,I caught him sleeping in the dryer! luckily,I saw his big tail sticking out,cuz I was about to stick the clothes in there and turn on the dryer…eek!

  • Omg heather I love it. My cats love the heating pad, they have a pet heating pad btu when I am PMSing they want to lay all over me bc of the heat. My cat Samantha screws for string cheese, I try and be sneaky but she will hear the wrapper and charge downstairs begging for a bite. LOL@ the mac nncheese story. I can see Samantha doing that, Chloe doesn't like people food.

  • Ha ha ha… more mornings than not are spent discussing who should actually get to eat the toast at my house! We share.

    Some day I'll have to tell you about the beer the beagle drank… the WHOLE glass full!

  • Ok, I was wondering about that term Dusti! LOL!

    Oh, here's the beagle story: Not long after we moved into our condo, our real estate agent came to check on us. Hubby had just poured a glass of beer and had taken maybe one sip. We were chatting with the RE agent for a while, and when hubby went back to sit down he found an empty glass on the floor and a lethargic beagle. She hasn't touched a drop of beer since!!!

  • Oh Dusti!!!! I told my DH that your cat did unmentionable things for cheese, he just gave me a strange look. Thanks for clarifying! LOL!

    Lianne, that reminds me of the time I typed a comment back at you and it totally sounded like I was not happy with you, lol!

    I love all of these animal stories guys… thanks for sharing!!!

    My daughter was not happy with this post… she said it's not his "good" side for pictures!

  • I type on the iPad so it always is autocorrecting, lol. I think the kitty looks adorable, I'm a sortie for my cats. We went out of town and I saw stressing out about my fur babies.

  • Dusti – that autocorrect is going to get you in big trouble one of these days! LOL!! 😀
