Why My Cats Are Going to Be Murdered

My cats have managed to destroy four of my iphone/ipod chargers, three of Simon's iphone/ipod chargers and three pairs of headphones belonging to both of us.

None of which are cheap to replace.

The kitties don't mess with big extension cords. They consider tiny, skinny wires to be a delicacy like caviar.

I've tried to be really good about removing my chargers from the wall when I'm done charging and not leaving them on my coffee table. However, today I decided to sync my iphone using my laptop. My laptop was sitting on the floor.

Daphne decides I've placed a wire buffet for her culinary convenience. She gnaws at the wire. I curse and shake my fist at her. No effect. Then I remember I have some yucky tasting spray so I drench the wire in cat repellent. Daphne keeps gnawing away.

I FORGET that I sprayed the wire and eat some potato chips. Yuck! Cat repellent works on people too. I spit potato chips everywhere as Daphne calmly gnaws away.

Now I have the computer and the charger on my lap and Daphne is not allowed to join them. (So she's sitting on Simon's lap, nursing herself.)

I swear if she wrecks this charger, she's going in timeout.

Why thank you! That's very nice to hear. I always think my blog is lame because I write so much about my cats, but I guess we all find our own lives slightly dull!
