1. Don’t leave ping pong ball in bathtub overnight…who needs sleep anyway.
2. Wearing socks with holes in them is asking for it!!
3. Leaving morning paper unattended results in more bits of
of paper then you originally paid for.
4. Shopping bags are for climbing into while still enroute from car to kitchen.
5. Sneaky opening of fridge door for a private snack is a constant goal to be achieved one day.
6. You will never win a computer game because cat will walk across keyboard and nuke half the game.
7. Put favourite squeaky toy away BEFORE going to bed.
8. Kitty litter tray is for one use only..has to be emptied and cleaned before used again.
9. Car trips result in carry basket bursting open and cat sitting on your lap helping steer the car.
10. Arms, legs, hands and feet hanging out of bed are a fantastic way of getting your attention and erupting into early not so intelligent war of words and
flying pillows.
11. Any black clothing you are going to wear the next day is going to be slept on.
12. Alarm clock is not needed any more.
13. Neighbours dog is there for the pleasure of sending it into a hysterical mess.
14. Fridge magnets magically disappear..and pens..and keys..etc.
15. Anything left on top of fridge, benches and coffee tables has to be cleared off..night or day.
16. Using computer printer results in the instant death of the emerging dangerous bit of paper.
17. Explaining to the telephone company that your bill has been eaten by the cat and can they send you another one. (had to send them a picture which
resulted in an amazing burst of email traffic within the company.)
18. Etc. etc…The list is growing. My new cat is adding to the list of achievements by breaking off the ends of the indoor TV antenna.

I'lll add opening doors to rooms closed off to cat because cat can reach the lever door handles. Doesn't matter if the door opens in or out. In is easier, but he can open them out as well. Exterior door handles are round and doors are locked or he would be coming and going as he pleases.

Great list, by the way.

A puking cat makes a great alarm tone.

1. Can no longer use my alarm system that has "pet safe" motion detection. They set it off every time.
2. If I leave a bathroom door open, when I return from work there will inevitably a closed door, and a bengal (sometimes two) locked inside, screaming their head(s) off. New house rule: bathroom doors must be kept closed at all times!
3. Sealed containers of cat food will be shredded. Just in the last week I came back from the pet store with a sealed bag of Blue Buffalo dry food (they just came out with some new flavors!), and some pouches of wet food. I put the dry food on the kitchen counter and the pouches inside a bread box on the kitchen counter. When I came back from work, the dry food back had been punctured and ripped open by sharp claws and food was all over the counter. And one of cats had opened the breadbox, pulled out a pouch, dragged it upstairs, set it down on my bed, and punctured it in a thousand places, letting juice ooze out all over the bed (what a mess!), which they partially lapped up.
4. If it sounds like a cat is being murdered, that's just Gaga with a ball in her mouth, screaming at me to come play with her.

- toilet paper needs to be stored in armoured furniture
- you don't use kitchen roll anymore, you use kitchen shred
- all your doors look like props from The Shining
- automatic feeders are defeated and the one that works goes offline and goes bust... Damn!
- you salivate when serving your kitty's food: pheasant is the new chicken
- your cats get more manicures than you
- they also get more compliments than you
- you learn about poop consistency and keep a poop diary as who knows what is causing "those stools" now
- you don't go to the psychologist, the psychologist comes to them

HAHAHA. The other day when I was at Petsmart getting some litter, the girl rang me up and the looked up at me, with a straight face and said... "looks like you've got $5 off your next cat grooming".

I almost fell over laughing. I had this picture in my mind of someone trying to hold Serafina, and she having that "W-T-F?" expression and then the claws coming out and slashing the unsuspecting groomer to shreds.... The girl saw the expression on my face and said "oh... I guess you wouldn't need that then...".

He hasn't visited me since..don't no why. :rolleyes:

The nose ring story is hilarious.

I will add a few:
  • The top of 6 ft bookshelves are not safe for storing ANYTHING
  • (to add to Sherry's comment about levered door handles) lock/bolt all doors to the outside. And enjoy watching your Bengal jump on the handles repeatedly in hopes of opening the door
  • Grocery store ads, books and magazines may be shredded at any time at your Bengal's discretion ( similar to the original list item about the morning paper)
  • Remember that those big eyes are not to make them look cute; those are predator eyes
