It's not really a game. And it's not so much the same position. It's just that she's (all of the sudden) gravitating toward some really ridiculous places to hang out. So we'll be wandering around the house and come upon her and just shake our heads in confusion. It all started with Bucket Cat, or Buckat as we've taken to calling it. Then it was other buckets. And containers. Then it was anything at all, really.
You know what, pictures demonstrate this much better. And I had planned this to be a photo-heavy post. So let's move on.
|The original Bucket Cat.|
|Variations on the Buckat Theme|
|Ah am TEH RULER OF TEH BUCKET! As such, I think I am entitled to a little PRIVACY in my bucket.|
We know she has always liked to perch in inconvenient, but relatively normal (for a cat) places to sit:
|You're making cookies? I don't thinks so, fatty. I will sit here and judge your food choices. And block the oven.|
|If I sit here long enough and nonchalantly enough, maybe you won't notice when I try to roam the counter-tops...|
|I will not TELL you to stop messing with the computer. But I WILL make it incredibly difficult for you to ignore me.|
|This show is stupid; pay attention to me instead. What laser eyes? Oh, that's just some of the demon coming out of me.|
|We've BEEN OVER this whole computer thing!|
|I may look cute and snuggly, but I really just think crossword puzzles are BORING!|
|I will sit in this bucket for twenty minutes, six times a day, for the rest of time. Just watch me. Every time you look, I will BE IN THIS BUCKET. No, I don't CARE that it's a BOX. It's a BUCKET to ME.|
|Yep. I found another bucket. I think you underestimate my devotion to these buckets... They don't even need to be open!|
|What do you mean "I don't think this qualifies as a bucket?" It's a squarish container that I fit into. It also has the side benefit of being really inconvenient for you and you laundry pursuits. It's a BUCKET!|
|I know this drawer wasn't open a minute ago. I opened it. Duh.|
|ALL cats like paper bags. Stop judging me.|
|You put this towel here for me, right? So that when you take your bath, I can be warm and relaxed, too, right? It wasn't for your neck, right? That's what I thought.|
|I have claimed this towel. Go away now and let us be alone for a little while.|
|This one is little, but it put up a heck of a fight. I MUST SUBDUE IT!|
|Not only have I taken over this vent, but I am stealing all your warms, too. MUAHAHAHA!|
|I love when you do projects on the floor! In a few minutes, I will sit on top of a picture frame and conform my body to its exact shape, but I will run away before you can take the picture. FYI.|
|What is this "clipboard" thing you speak of?|
Staying home all day has turned me into such an intellectual, poignant, and relevant blogger, don't you think?
