Thursday Thirteen: Things We Don't Like to Hear

13 Things We Don't Like to Hear

  1. Merlin, NO! (when Merlin is doing anything he's not supposed to)

  2. Merlin, GET DOWN! (when Merlin is up on the table, or the treadmill, or other places he shouldn't be)

  3. Merlin, Stop That! (again, when Merlin is doing anything he's not supposed to)

  4. OUT! Get out, Boys! (when we're in the bathroom or the Bowflex/Comic book room, when our humans are going to close the door)

  5. It's too early for crunchies (we only get crunchies at bedtime)

  6. We're all out of fishy treats (Dragonheart likes to have dried fish cubes crushed and sprinkled over his stinky goodness)

  7. Dragonheart, is your brother being a bad influence? (when Dragonheart, normally the "good boy," does something naughty, like Merlin would do)

  8. Get off the laptop! (gee, we're just trying to blog and visit our friends)

  9. You're supposed to be an obligate carnivore! (when Merlin tries to eat people food, like animal crackers, cheese, etc.)

  10. Merlin, we're trying to eat. Leave us alone. (when Merlin climbs all over our humans when they are trying to eat)

  11. It's human alone time (we aren't sure why humans need time alone apart from us)

  12. Not right now, Merlin (when Merlin tries to climb all over our dad, and cuddle on his chest, when our dad is trying to do something)

  13. Bath time (no explanation needed!)

MISS PEACH ~(^.^)~ said...

Oh I do not mind bath time at all. I would think your bath would go really quick not having any fur to wash and rinse out.
I have missed you and hope you are both well. I see Merlins gets into more mischeif than you do dragonheart!
Love you....Peach

We do not pay attention to anything that starts with No.

The Devil Dog said...

Do I detect a theme there? Hey, Merlin, last night I pulled the leftover chicken off the counter, but PlusOne nabbed me before I could eat it. Have you ever done something like that?

Cheysuli and gemini said...

I hate hearing things like that too. I didn't think you two were ever naughty cats!

Kaze, Latte, & Chase said...

Just take out Merlin's name and put in Kaze's.....trouble makers I tell you.

Tybalt said...

Quite a few of those are heard around here . . . minus the name Merlin, of course. ;)

Name: Mr. Hendrix said...

we hate those words too. especially No. Merlin, we just love that you get Dragonheart to "explore" outside his normal goodness. Bendrix especially thinks it is wonderful.

silly bean private time. why would they want that? i saw how they whined for their TV during the blackout (Weds post)

Did you meet Marley & Reggie yet? They are two cute Sphynx kitties!

First, animal crackers are FOR animals, right? Second, you have a comic book room ... is this a room for storing all the comic books, or is it a special room for reading comic books so you don't walk on them or chew them? Dad used to collect comics, now he just has boxes under the stairs that I sometimes nap on.

Sunny's Mommy said...

I think your Mom and Dad are too hard on you two. They need to loosen up on all those rules they have :-p

Princess said...

I do not like the sounds of these words either!! Beans can be so bossy!

Sweet Praline said...

Poor Merlin. It sounds like you are always getting in trouble.

We3Katz said...

Furkidsmom said...

We pretend to be listening when we hear the No word or the Get Down or Stop That words....and then go right back and do it again! Hey...we're cats...it's what we DO!!
