Here my Harley Boy waits patiently by the refrigerator door. Maybe he thinks there's food in there for him. Or maybe he knows that's where I keep the milk. Ya' think?!?! No........!!
He's waiting for his ICE! Harley is OBSESSED with the ice machine! Whenever he sees me in the kitchen, he comes running. And it has to be CRUSHED! I put my cup under there and when it's on "crush" it sprays a fine mist of ice all over him. He likes that! But that's not enough. I hold my hand under the ice machine and crush a few pieces for him to "kick" around the kitchen floor! Only problem, it makes little puddles all over the floor. So now I throw the ice across the floor into the family room. He goes chasing after it and will play with it on the carpet. That way it eventually melts into the carpet and dries! He also likes to walk around with it between his teeth. So, all you see is this black ball of fur and a little white piece of ice hanging out his mouth! Harley, you spoiled little cat...guess you have ME trained pretty well!
But the reason for my blog title....that little sweet, innocent looking kitty! Well, this morning I fixed me a bowl of cereal and a piece of peanut butter toast for breakfast. I finished eating and laid the cereal bowl on the counter and headed to the powder room. As I was coming out I heard a loud rattle, a huge thump and saw a black fur ball scooting by me as fast as he could run. He had jumped on the counter, knocked my bowl over (which, by the way, still had a little milk and cereal left in it, and knocked the jar of peanut butter off the counter. The peanut butter jar was rolling across the floor, and milk and cereal had splattered all over the toaster and it's buttons, as well as on my counter and back splash. What a mess! I'm STILL trying to figure out how he did it! I guess the moral of this story is...always rinse your bowl out and place in the dishwasher BEFORE you leave the kitchen! Or maybe...NEVER leave a little black cat unattended! ~~Annie
