Minkee Monday

Minkee loves me. .... There is no doubt about it. However, there are times when her "love" gets really irritating. Here she is while I am on the computer. Not once in a while but every time. First, she takes a flying leap, grabs on for dear life, with a big ooooof, and scrambles to the top of my chair. See the claw evidence on the chair? This big fat cat oooof, generally scares me out of my wits. You'd think I'd be expecting it but more often than not, she shocks me. This picture isn't so great but you get the idea. I was taking it over my head.

This is a much better shot of her, once again taken over my head. She usually will sit there, with her motor runnign, for quite a while.

Once her motor gets good and warmed up, she begins her descent....down my chest and arm that is! She thinks I'm her own personal climbing toy! Here she is standing on my shoulder. This is a big girl here that thinks she's a parrot!

Climbing, climbing down....along my arm to reach....

.....the computer! She isn't happy until she is in my way, tail swishing in my face, exploring what I am doing! It's usually about this time that she either clears out on her own or more than likely, I give her "a little help!"

This climbing up and down us is very common for this cat. She usually is on the back of any chair I am in and always ends up in "the descent." She likes being perched on our shoulders. I really think she missed her calling as a parrot.

That looks so familiar! I've been thinking about taking photos of Bucky climbing on me in bed... at the computer he just tries to jump in my lap (claw marks on my thighs...) but in bed he is always sleeping on me. It's kind of like having a live heating pad that's not always in the right spot!

Minkee is adorable!! My cats love to be between me and the computer monitor, stepping on the keyboard.

What gets me, is they will almost always manage to step on a series of keys that is an actual "shortcut" and do something funky to the display or setting. grr

Gotta love them though!

Julie - and heating pads don't weigh 12 pounds! My cat sits on my chest in the morning to prompt me to feed her, and I start to feel like I can't breathe.

Minkee's adorable, but oh, claw marks (sigh). It seems cats and good furniture are mutually exclusive. My husband's last desk chair was "decorated" like that.

To think, I can remember when you weren't a cat person...
