Wink Cats on the counter

My cats have about as much respect for my authority as a blinker has fluid. Unless you have a squirt bottle in your hand. So when I told my cat to get off the counter, he watched calmly as I walked over (sans squirt bottle), pulled out the sprayer hose in the kitchen sink and pointed it right at his face... His calm demeanor lasted for about another 1/10th of a second. HA! Me:1, Cat:0.

Do you have any funny animals in the kitchen stories?

I'm sure I do, but I can't think of any right now!

I had some friends whose cat kept getting on the stove. His tail caught on fire at least twice. You'd think he would have learned from the first time!

Years ago I had to start keeping my bread on top of the refrigerator as my cat would get up whatever cabinet it was on and tear the bag open and eat it.

i always make charlie get down, when i see him that is. i am sure he is on the counters when i am asleep. i have given up on the dining room table. both he and thomas, think it a great place to snooze. just clean it well before company. works for all of us.

Omg that poor cat! He's lucky he didn't come out worse! And you would think he would have an unpleasant association with the stove and stop going up there... Was it a gas stove? Maybe he liked the heat from the pilot light?

Lol I have to keep the butter dish in the cupboard or my cat will knock it down and lick the butter. He is a rascal. Never heard of cats liking bread so much tho!

It was a gas stove. He didn't sleep on the stove or anything. It was just part of his daily walk.

I had one who wouldn't dare do it when I was around to see but in the morning there was often evidence of him having been up there; he left a long gray hair or two where he sat ...

He is also the one who got an ice cube in his water dish whenever someone poured a glass of ice water. If we didn't he'd try to sneak sips out of our glasses that were sitting beside us on the computer desk or coffee table! It was kinda funny trying to watch him stick his fat head into a glass ... until he inevitably knocked them over.

Ha ha my cat does that too... I put filtered water from the fridge in his dish. He tries to drink out of my water even when I'm sitting right there. Like I said, no respect lol. I can't leave water glasses anywhere overnight, or there will be water all over the floor in the morning :/

now that sounds like thomas. he can't abide a glass of anything on the bedside table. what i can't believe is it took me two years to realize i should have a closed bottle instead. aren't cats interesting creatures?
