Meezer Rule Wednesday: Books

Merlin: My Meezer Rule for today: When a human lies down to read a book, it is important to jump up onto their chest and make yourself comfortable, so that they have to put down the book and pay attention to you! If you purr while doing so, and look adorable, it will be hard for the human to get upset with you.

Crikey - look at you! :)

Snuggling is much more important than book reading. Another good rule is if the humans are reading a newspaper, you have to lie full stretch on it. Cuteness lets you get away with that too.

Sen and Tom said...

Excellent! I believe in this strategy 100%!

Heehee,I think that is a good rule ;)

excellent rule. we prevent mommy from reading too

Kaze, Latte, & Chase said...

Yup this is a very very good rule! Especially if the human is in bed. That is the most important time to veto reading.

I am not much of a snuggler so I don't mind when Meowm reads, but it sounds like a good rule.~Junior

I love this rule! I don't crawl up on Meowm's chest, cause hse is usually sitting up...so I crawl up in her lap and talk to her so much that hse has to put the book down and pay attention to me to get me to be quiet!~Orion

You look very comfy Merline!~Orion and Junior

Cheysuli and gemini said...

That is an excellent rule--of course my human usually tries to sit up and read.

Babs (Beetle) said...

Ha ha! That is very true!

Ack, this is why mom started reading books online! Dat and she doesn't hafta dig around fur da one she wants to read. She still spends lots of time sitting in da recliner covered in kitties tho...who can resist when we make ourselves look cute.

catsynth said...

This is a good rule, Luna will often crawl up on my chest when I am either reading or on the computer - and she always wins :)

jenianddean said...

Yes, I agree. We don't do the chest curl (even though Dad has tried to teach us -- he gets clawed a lot) but we'll curl up at his feet and that seems to distract him pretty well. You've got the technique down!

The Island Cats said...

Merlin, that's a rule that we practice all the time. We do this with books, newspapers, magazines... We guess we don't like our humans to read.

Purrageous Pirates said...

We really like this rule and try to follow it every chance we get. Good job!!

DEBRA said...

Dragonheart if they pull out a book or magazine it is imperative to get into their laps!

I bet you can see right through your humans, why can't they just see through you?

Purrs,

The Furry Kids said...

You do look irresistible!

Love,
Tazo

PS - I'm still lovin' your tan. :)

Camie's Kitties said...

Merlin, we like to do that too, but what is really fun is to bat the pages of the book they are reading before they finally give up and you can curl up with them.

DK & The Fluffies said...

That is a fabulous rule Merlin!

Sunny's Mommy said...

I think that is a rule for every cat!

Lux said...

Excellent rule, and I must say your human looks pretty happy! :)

The Devil Dog said...

Oh, yes, that is a very good rule. You look so cute, and how could your dad possibly be angry with you, being so cute.

Max said...

Heh..that's where Buddah plops down when the Woman is trying to read in bed. It annoys her, and that amuses me (and I note that she does not make him move...)

Chairman Mao said...

Awwww, that's a great Meezer Rule, Merlin! We Ballicai like doin the same thing with our Momma. What a snugglebug you are!

Kittyhugs and purrs from MaoMao!

Jimmy Joe said...

Aw, you look like such a great snuggler, Merlin! Oh, and I showed Momma your toes postie from yesterday, and she said it looks like you two have Superhero-Paws!
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

Veronica (& Fig) said...

snuggling is very important!

Shaggy, Scooby and Scout said...

Thats excellent!! Will have to remember that one!

Sweet Praline said...

Sounds like a great idea to me!

Puss-in-Boots said...

Oh yes, we think that's a very important rule, too. Also, when they go and have a nap in the afternoon, one must go into the bedroom and lie on top of one's human to nap, too.
