Shame on Me, I Laughed

I bet you would have laughed too. Princess believes that she belongs on my desk and that she can sit or walk anywhere she chooses. I got plastic roll out desk mats and I am trying to put them in place. Instructions are on a large (12 x12) sticky label. I peeled one off to read. After reading, I sort of folded it and laid it on the desk. Some of the sticky was still exposed. Princess jumped up on my desk and sat on the label. The cat quickly jumped up and began running back and forth in the house trying to get away from the label which had stuck to her fur. She looked really funny and I laughed. I had to corner her and pull it off. It was not stuck really badly, and it did not hurt her. I just surprised her and probably made her mad. I bet you would have laughed.

Yes, they do keep us amused, or annoyed at times. Pets and kids are funny often.

And it is always important to look at things from their point of view.

@GardenGerty Maybe, but they too need a sense of humor to make it through life.

true. when something like that happens, you have to find a way to catch, corner or cover them since they're in a panic running, jumping, rolling, kicking, flapping, scratching, biting...

It probably did not last more than a minute, but yes, she would have gotten thoroughly wound up and been hard to handle.

No, she still thinks this is where she sits. She also knows that I have treats I will share in a drawer.

I had a cat who used to walk across the keyboard. Wish I had thought of sticky tape.

Draco got stuck in a plastic bag last week. It freaked him out and he tore through the house. It was kind of funny, but I had to remind the kids to never leave the plastic bags lying around.

@katsmeow1213 true. the warning 'this bag is not a toy' applies to pets too.

@hereandthere I do believe it says to keep away from pets and children. I'd just come back from the store and the kids were emptying the bags, so that's how the cat got into one. He wasn't suffocating or anything, but he put his head through the handle and then couldn't get it off of him.

I needed comedy relief, those roll out desk mats are terribly hard to unroll.

Yes I would have because that one sounds so funny. I think it is funny what cats do and how they can get into trouble if they want to.

I might have cried if that were sammy. I would not want to pull that off of him knowing some fur would come off with it.

I am quite sure I would have laughed too. Cats are the boss of the house (or so they think) and every once in a while it is good to see them get addled a little bit.

I'm glad I have a 75 pound dog who doesn't jump on tables or desks!

Yup, I would have laughed too. I wonder what it is with cats and desks - they seem to think that's where they belong.
