Whenever people see this illustration based on real life events they always ask, "Just how many cats do you have?" Two to be exact. And that is all we can handle. My cat Akua shreds toilet paper just for the fun of it. But my cat Hana shreds anything paper to get our attention at feeding time. She is capable of creating chaos in every room of the house.
In fact we have a running gag at our house. When Hana starts her shenanigans we'll hold up some junk mail and say," Hmmm, I should read this important document" And as soon as she sees us acting like we're reading something she rushes over to take a big bite out of the corner. She's the one in the sink with the devilish look on her face. And boy, is it true.
She is so darn smart. If we are watching T.V. and she wants to play she will claw her way up to the narrow ledge in front of the flat screen. And since it is so narrow she'll walk ahead and then back up over and over. Blocking our view! My husband trys to run the shenanigans clear out of her now before T.V. time. An exhausted cat is a behaved cat.
But of course they are just as tenacious at getting affection and petting. And they are not shy about demanding what they want. Akua will cry and head butt you if you stop petting him when he's in the mood. Yes, day to day life with cats is full of meows, mayhem and of course a little magic. Let the games begin...
