I may chat about my books, what I'm writing or reading, or just general thoughts. You may read posts about my cats or just my crazy life in general. Comments are welcome, if anyone wants to interact with me. Maybe we can share war stories, whether it's writing related or just about life in general.

Smarty Pants

Yes, this is a brand of vitamin that we sell at work, but this story is about my cat.

 Raven taking in the breeze in the kitchen window.  We don't get to open them much around here.

My little Raven is too smart for his own good sometimes.  This cat loves to eat rubber bands, so I have to always think like a cat around here and put things up that could become cat toys.  This is easy since I’ve been doing it for years but sometimes things still get left in a cat’s reach that shouldn’t have.

I had to take a fat, blue rubber band away from him tonight.  I’m not sure how it ended up on the floor, but he had it and was playing with it.  I have a small, square open box that I put rubber bands in on the panty shelf because they come in handy.  I think I figured out how the rubber bands are ending up on my pantry floor.  Once this cat gets an idea in his head, he won’t let it rest until he can accomplish what he has in mind.  I was putting things away and found him up on the pantry shelf fishing rubber bands out of that container.  I was shocked.  He always figures out a way to go someplace.  I think he probably climbed up on the cat food bucket and then started on the shelving until he reached his destination.  Little rascal.  It was funny and I wished I had a picture.

In the end, I had to take his prize away from him and give him a squeeze and hug instead.


  1. pilch,

    Thank you! He is cute and smart! Of course, as his mum, I would say that. I have to stay one step ahead of him. Thanks for reading.


  2. It's amazing how smart some animals can be. He's adorable!

    1. Vashti,

      He's definitely too smart for his own good.
