One of my 2 cats is the sweetest most well-behaved kitty you’d ever meet (the other, on the other hand, is a little ruffian.) However she has the weirdest habit I’ve ever seen — she loves adhesive, specifically tape and labels. I pick up the lint roller (don’t act all surprised, I have and use a lint roller, but only since I got the cats) and she is all around me wanting to eat the sticky sheets. Peel a price tag off, same deal. I have to actually put away my scotch tape rolls so she won’t shred them and eat the plastic tape.

Going to the fount of all knowledge, Google, I search for tape eating cats and only turn up the tip that puttin double-stick tape on a plant will keep them from being eaten by cats. They forget to mention if your cat likes tape it isn’t much of a deterrent.

Stupid Cat

Sun 29 February 2004 by Kevin van Haaren

just spent an hour searching for my damn cat. apparently he jumped off the deck i let them run around on (a second story deck with no direct path to the ground.) turns out he was huddled under the deck of my neighbor. he let me pull him out and carry him home. He didn’t freak out and start biting me and clawing big holes in my shirt ‘til we got outside the door.

oh well, it’s better exercise than searching for the damn tivo remote.
