The Chu Strikes Again

I had to add a funny story. I always enjoy reading other people’s cat tales so IF anyone reads this thing I hope they can get a laugh. On Saturday I was incapacitated and asked Brandon if he would run down to the pharmacy and get me some Aleve to help with the pain. He made sure I was comfortable, left my cell phone nearby in case I needed him and left. The Chu was lying sweetly on my legs keeping me warm. The moment I heard his truck door shut she jumped down and then jumped on the desk and proceeded to make herself very comfortable indeed on the keys of Brandon‘s laptop. She knows good and well that he doesn’t like her on there. I weakly yelled for her to get off and then took the miniature stuffed cat Brandon left near me and threw it at her hitting her squarely on the hip. She didn’t even flinch.

Now I might expect that from a curious kitten but no, our 6 year old cat is boldly lying there blinking innocently at us. No wonder there is a great gaping ‘hole’ in the branches. I yelled at her and she immediately high-tailed it under the bed to escape the wrath of the squirt bottle. She believes we bought the tree just for her amusement. I can just picture her right now, no one is home, lying 2 feet up in the tree just as happy as can be, and I have to laugh.
