Sneaky Kitty

Posted: Saturday, March 17, 2007 by Travis Cody in

Mr Tucker doesn't like my laptop. I usually keep it on the ottoman in front of my chair, a place Mr Tucker considers his own. But he rarely sits there...unless I'm working on something. Then he has to sit there, if for no other reason than to stop me from doing whatever it is I'm doing.

He'll sit up on the floor next to the ottoman and fuss at me. I'll tell him to wait and he'll give me the eye. Then he'll jump up on the arm of the chair and wedge his way down behind me, forcing his way underneath my arm.

Next comes the face. This is not an easy face to read. It could be the pathetic face, looking for sympathy. It could be the evil kitty face, meaning I'm about to get swatted unless I move the laptop and make room for Mr Tucker. Or it could be the sweet face, wondering how I could possible favor the laptop over kitty.

Next comes the determined 20lb cat, using all of his strenght to push underneath my arm and get where he wants to go. And now I have two choices. I can force him to get down, in which case he'll just try again. Or...

I can give him his little victory, knowing that in a matter of minutes...

...he'll have decided he'd much rather lay on the floor anyway!

    Trying to get around and make my visits today trav... Mr. Tucker is a typical cat.. don't bother me until I want to be paid attention to...

    OOO and is that a Travis leg in one of those pictures????


  1. Heh heh...too funny! :)
    Cute kitty.

    (By the way, in my Saturday photo hunt: NO, I did not leave the empty tea jug in the fridge. I placed it back in the fridge in order to take the picture. And...those were dill pickles in the back. :)

    Happy Saturday

    *LOL* Love the pictures. Mr Tucker acts very familiar to someone at my place... =)

    Is 20 #'s normal for a kitty? I don't remember-it's been a while since I had adult cats.

    He's very cute, and makes me want to get another kitty.

  1. Travis says:

    Meri: Weeeeeeell, if you say so.

    V: Yup, that does appear to be my leg.

    CWM: Oooooohhhh! Well that explains it then.

    Sanni: I live here at the sufferance of my kitty.

    Mags: He's a big cat, but he could stand to lose a couple pounds.

    **rushes back to look at "a Travis leg"

    Cool cat, Travis!

  1. 20 pounds! Dang, that is one big ol' honkin' kitty!

    Mr. Tucker - master of his domain. Trav? Not so much, I'm thinkin'...

    With one of my cats it's the newspaper that they just have to lay in the middle of.

    Mr. Tucker isn't the only one that acts like that, Buffy can be sitting around doing nothing until I want to read and than she wants to crawl up and sit next to me and have me pet her.

    ROLF that sounds very similar to what my kids do... what a cute kittie;)

  1. Lizza says:

    Mr. Tucker looks just like my dear departed Billy, the first and only cat I ever loved. He was nowhere close to 20 lbs, though. Your cat is gorgeous.
