What’s Wrong With Me?

Mom says I need to talk to my readers and see if they can figure out what’s wrong with me.  First of all, it’s not my fault!  It’s all Mom’s fault!!!  Now that we have that clear, let me explain.  When Mom is at the computer, I want her to pay attention to me so I have to be clever.  First I jump up on the computer desk and get right in front of the monitor so she can’t work.  She will usually tell me that she can’t see through me and sometimes she’ll even take the time to pet me.  That’s not good enough.  So, then I jump up on the entertainment center that’s behind the computer desk.  She can’t really see what I’m doing up there so she kind of tunes me out.  That makes me mad so I start pushing everything off on the floor.  If she doesn’t come right away, I just keep pushing stuff off until I get her attention.  Now, since she knows I’m going to do that, wouldn’t it be smart of her to just take everything off the top of the entertainment center so I don’t have anything to push?  Makes sense to me.  Evidently it doesn’t make sense to Mom ‘cuz she keeps putting the stuff up there.  She’s just asking for trouble.  All I want is some attention…..or maybe some catnip…..or maybe some treats…..or maybe a brushing.  So, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with me.  I trust that you, my very dear, very wise, very handsome and beautiful readers will agree completely with me!  See Mom…..there’s nothing at all wrong with me.  Right, readers???

UPDATE:  Mom…..my readers say there’s nothing wrong with me.  I think you better move the stuff off the entertainment center or start paying more attention to me.  Oh, and don’t get mad at me ‘cuz it’s what my fabulous readers want!

  1. I think you need to give your mom a break. She works hard all week and needs some time to relax before the new work week begins. At my house, Nels just got put into “time out” (his kennel) because he won’t stay out of mischief. I’ll take him out in a half hour.

  2. It sounds like you have some energy to burn off! What if BEFORE your Mom gets on the computer she plays with you for a few minutes?

    Alternately, she could put some sticky paper on the entertainment center–but that would be awful! For you, that is.

  3. There is nothing wrong with wanting some attention. It is fitting and proper that you are given the love and attention that you deserve. Love Nellie and Jasper, who are wanting to trade their mother in for a better, less forgetfull model.

  4. Sounds pretty normal to me. I tend to be more polite – I will jump on the desk and sit on my human’s mousepad and stare at her. Or jump on the back of her chair and do my Famous Balancing Act. I only knock stuff of the desk as a last resort. But it is her fault for having all that stuff there anyway.

  5. Oh there’s nothing wrong with you! We do the same thing. We’d much rather have the mom paying attention to us than doing whatever she is doing. Humans are slow learners, though.

  6. Your OK. Being a computer crasher or laptop lounger is just a sign that you are bored and need your own computer to share the experience with your Mom. Actually I would request an ipad. It would be easier for you to use. And it should come with plenty of movies on birds or fish or mice or whatever your interest is. Yip, an ipad is the solution.

  8. Well, this situation sounds familiar……my Sam goes to great lengths to get – then keep my attention. Just coming by to say hello – saw your post on Bowie’s blog and since I actually HAVE a “Hemingway” cat (polydactyl) named Sam who is a ginger tabby I couldn’t resist leaving a comment. My name is also Pam……..and there’s no doubt in my house who’s in charge!

    Pam (and Sammy)

    1. We are so excited that you read our blog and that you stopped to chat with us. We think Sam is very handsome! Mom didn’t realize when she named us that we were going to have our own blog, but she thinks our names really fit now. We’re going to tell Mom that Sam’s Mom has the same name as her. That’s neat! Welcome to our world!

Purrs, meows, barks, chirps and human comments are greatly appreciated. We love hearing from our readers.
