I love my cat. I really do.
Every guy needs to have a 'man cave', a place where we can go to be men? A place where only we touch the remote, where we an yell at the team we like and, well, act like men.
I have set up the man cave as a sanctuary from the everyday problems of life. It has a decent little TV, DVD player and some other creature comforts. It used to have a futon that was kinda old an lumpy, so it was upgraded to a small bed with TONS of pillows, a small end table that I built and my man-things. Posters, sports stuff and other crap.
It's also set up to keep the cat food away from the dog - The Edster has his wet and dry food station there...and his treats live there too!!!!
I sometimes go into the man cave and fall asleep - a man needs his naps - but before I nod off, I put down some treats for Ed. I'll fall asleep and wake up to either a cat on top of me, a cat has flipped over and opened up the container with his food in it or THE NOISE OF THINGS FALLING OFF THE TABLE......
The table has a small lamp on it, a cheap clock and some other odds and ends on it - a project that I work on while I watch the tube, my glasses or whatever I take out of my pockets and leave on top???
Recently I moved things around to change things up and to clean under the furniture.
The cat knows that he is in for a treat when I do go he cave. Sometimes I'll put his treats out and well, I made the mistake of leaving a package of Temptations on top a few times and guess who remembers and climbs up on top of said table to look for his treats?
When there are no treats to be found the law of gravity is followed.....to a T.
Things begin to crash to the floor followed by a 'meow', IF that doesn't work on the first time, another crash and a louder "MEOW" follows. This goes on until he cleans off the table or I wake up.
He cannot knock over the lamp, that clips on to the table but everything else is fair game! The one thing that he has not ever knocked over is a can of pop - or any other container...So I guess he really isn't THAT destructive.
But, he does give mother nature a run for her money!!!
