Can a Cat be in the Doghouse?
Hi, Fred the Cat here. This week I am responsible for a two hundred dollar check Pop had to write.
Here’s what happened. There is a three foot high concrete wall around the pool/patio area. The area is screened from that wall to the top. Lots of times when no one is looking I hop up on the ledge of the wall, stand on my hind legs and stretch against the screen. When I do this I put my front claws into the screen and pull against it. This results in the screen getting torn a little bit at a time. I just keep doing this at different places along the wall and over time I have destroyed six of the screen panels.
The man who replaced the screen panels asked Pop if he could borrow me to teach classes. He wants me to teach other cats my talent for destroying screens. Pop laughed at his joke but she didn’t laugh after she had to write that check. The guy told Pop he was giving her a discount because she was a “repeat customer “ And he knew as long as I’m around he will have future work here.
I think I may be in the doghouse for a while. Then again, she just walked by and scratched my head, which always makes me purr. See ya later. I’m off to test out the new screen panels.
Have a great weekend and keep your paws off the screen.
