Life as a Cookie - Chapter Eleven

I'm back.   I like the sun on my belly and I'm so very cute!  

Snort.

That wasn't nice, Evil Twin, but I'll forgive you since you gave me an extra teaspoon of yummy stuff to get me to write this
post.

I want to tell you all about my hidey-holes.   These are the places I go when I need to chill or get away from it all.  We all know how hard a domestic house cat's life is, don't we?  Please keep this between us. I don't want the humans to know about these secret places.


This is my cave.  It has a cushy floor, a nice roof, and makes a great viewing area to keep an eye on red dot:



This is my cave.  I like to tunnel under this cushy thing, hiding while sticking my butt and pointy tail out.  Yeah.  The humans will never find me.  It also doubles as a play area for my favorite game -  jump and catch the flying mouse (shown deceased next to my pile of soft):



This is my cave.  Yes, I like caves.  It smells like people feet but it's dark, cool, and quiet.  I can get a good snooze on here:



I hope you like my hidey-holes.

Some things I've learned in this life of imprisonment with the humans:
  • When the noisy device next to the female's side of the bed speaks, it is time for her to rise and escort me to my food bowl, stroking my back and scratching my hind-quarters while I feast.  If she silences the device and turns over for another snooze, she is punished by me walking on her chest.   For some reason, I get pushed off the bed occasionally.
Oreo, your food automatically dispenses.  You can leave the bed and go eat at anytime.

Huh?
  • If I nibble at the humans' calves, they squeal.  Hee Hee.  But then they get the spray bottle and spray me with water.  I don't like that much.
So what have you learned, Oreo?

Huh?

Shut up and food me you stupid human.

Welcome back, Oreo. We avatar humans missed your persistent torture of the virtual beings that food you. I want a secret place to hide from my two earthbound mutts that hound me.

Btw, was your human able to thwart the dandelion menace? They're attacking the north east.

Let's face it, Oreo. You're all cat. Just a cat, mind you, but all cat. And down-right annoying. I'm surprised Reffie puts up with you, and evil twin.

Ha! Oreo and I have a lot in common. I, too, enjoy getting lost in the "red dot." AND I'm always looking for humans to "food me" too!

heh heh

@Lauren - Thanks. I hear the female talking about hiding in a place called spa. Good Luck finding a hidey-hole. Hum....dandelions. Is that food?

@Rob-bear - Meow.

@Quirky - I'm glad you like red dot but you do know that it's all MINE!

I love the cat cave. Ours have one just like it. LOL.

Have a great weekend!

this is Lenny, Amy/Iwonderwye's male cat - aka., king of the house...I also have a cardboard cave my person put in front of my african toy bowl, before I shoved it behind the large plant, thus rendering me invisible to the living room inhabitants. My blanket cave is my favorite nest at night. It's covered in a horse design but I can pretend I am eating them. I don't care for a cave in the closet because I frequently get locked in there, which is most inconvenient when I need to eat or pee.

The noisy device on the other side of the bed, HA! Good one.

Ivy said...

Hi Oreo! I wish I had a few hiding holes. The couch is sinking, so it may become a hiding hole when I least expect it.

Hmm..

You know they make an alarm that the humans have to chase around the room to turn off. It may save you some bruises.

@Constant - Thanks. We love our caves.

@Amy - Howdy King Cat! Greetings from one king to another. Your caves sound cool but I'm sure MINE are better.

@Sue - Hee Hee. Yeah, it has multiple personalities: voices, birds, squeaks.

@Ivy - My human might hurt herself chasing things around the room and that might interfere with my ability to eat. Good Luck finding your own cave.

Ahhhh..to be a dog would be so great! I can only fantasize about sleeping all day and occasionally licking myself! LOL

little lotta said...

Tell the truth...you DID clean up the floor of your closet just a tad, before taking that photo. Right? Please tell me I'm right.

ReformingGeek said...

@otin - I am cat but I lick like a dog. Peoples taste yummy.

@little lotta - Reffie's Hubby is actually very neat!
