Camera Critters (#98)

It’s a good thing he’s so cute.
…because Weasley, the little brat, has started getting on the kitchen counter as often as he can.  Now I know there are people who don’t seem to mind cats on the counters or cats on the tables, but I mind!  Especially when he starts ripping into the bread sacks and trying to eat my bread.  You'd think we've put the little guy on some kind of diets for quick weight loss the way he's always looking for food. Well, people food, anyway.

So far he hasn’t jumped from the floor to the counter.  I don’t  know if he can or not, and he doesn’t know either.  He just recently figured out how to jump onto the bar stools.  Before that he was using the rungs of one stool to climb onto the other stool, kind of like a ladder.  And then, it was an easy hop up onto the counter and all around the kitchen.

So, we’ve moved the stools away from the bar, to make it a little harder.  He still figures out how to get from the stool to the bar, but it’s a little harder, and when we catch him – he gets water squirted on him, and he runs.  It doesn’t stop him from doing it again, though.  He’s a persistent stubborn little munchkin.  And, he likes water, at least he likes playing in the bathroom sink.

I put some aluminum pie pans on the edge of the counter, because I vaguely remember something about that.  (Yes, I know I have the Internet, and I could look it up, but I didn’t)  When he jumps up, he’ll hit one, and the sound of it clattering to the floor will scare him – except that sounds don’t seem to bother this cat, he just comes and checks them out.  Still, worth a try.  And maybe I should look it up to see if there’s something I’m missing, like putting a little water in the pans maybe?  Does anybody know?

Like I said, it’s a good thing he’s so cute.
