The Incredibly Spoiled Cat

Behold the Incredibly Spoiled Cat (ISC). She has two college-educated people working full time to keep her in comfort.

As you may know, dogs have owners but cats have staff. My beloved (MB) and I are the staff. We embrace our humble role. She deigns to accept our warm laps.

One evening when she was about 10 years old, as MB and I were having an intimate dinner for two with votive candles on the table for atmosphere, the ISC jumped up on the table and proceeded to walk toward our plates across the top of the candles, setting her ruff on fire. Luckily MB had the presence of mind quickly to "pat her out," whereupon with a disgusted look over her shoulder at being manhandled, she jumped down again leaving
two incredulous staff and the smell of burned fur in her wake.

She is dumb as a box of rocks but it doesn't matter. She still rules.

We've got something very similar. We put up with getting woken up at 5.30 in the morning, her walking all over the surfaces and tables, catching wild animals and her amazing ability to store cat litter in her paws for later use all over the house.

Thanks for the funny post, it cheered up my afternoon.

Jennywenny, not to mention beefing with the HOC (Hated Orange Cat) who lives next door! We must be crazy, or in love! :-) Welcome!
