I don’t believe it. I headed to my (I mean my person’s – sorry) computer to write my blog and I found Scratchy sitting on it. And Scratchy wasn’t about to get off. The computer is a laptop and it was closed up, so there was no way I could use it with Scratchy there. I couldn’t even push him to the side. In other words, he had to move.
It would be one thing if he tried to steal my blog again. I could at least get on there when he finished and comment on what he said. But no. He didn’t even want to write. He just wanted to keep me from writing.
Well, finally I’d had enough and I jumped up at him. I don’t hurt him. I don’t even get close to him, but it usually gets him to move. My person doesn’t like it when I do that though so I got yelled at. At least Scratchy moved so I could get on the computer. I wish my person would think before she yelled at me though. How would she like it if Scratchy kept her from writing her blog?

Scratchy is probably rubbing it in too huh?
November 21, 2011 at 3:25 pm
Rumpy, I think Scratchy’s just jealous because I have my own blog and he doesn’t.

If you are a good dog, Santa Claus would give you your own laptop?
November 21, 2011 at 3:26 pm
Sweet Kitten – Wow! my own laptop. That would be something. I’d better put that on my wish list. I wonder if Scratchy would sit on it if it was mine?

LOL Hey, a dog’s gotta do what a dog’s gotta do! 😀
November 21, 2011 at 3:28 pm
Daisy, you’re right. I’ve gotta do whatever it takes to get Scratchy off that laptop. He’s really a brat sometimes.
November 21, 2011 at 12:38 pm
Bongo, you’re just lucky that Scratchy isn’t so heavy that he cracks the laptop’s top because if he did that, it might be unusable.
November 21, 2011 at 3:28 pm
Sandra, I hadn’t thought of Scratchy breaking the laptop. Maybe I’d better tell my person to stop feeding him.
November 21, 2011 at 12:55 pm
Maybe next time you should give Scratchy a big ole slimy wet lick right on his head. That would probably get him to move…or scratch your eyes out…maybe not a good idea.
November 21, 2011 at 3:30 pm
Katyoparty, giving Scratchy a slobbery kiss is a good idea. He would definitely move, but then eeew – I would have his hair stuck all over my tongue.
November 21, 2011 at 3:38 pm
I think you need a little bag of catnip for such moments! I have yet to see the cat that refuses to move for that!
November 21, 2011 at 4:13 pm
Wonderbutt’s person, what a great idea. I’ll have to get my catnip stash that I can bring out when necessary.
November 21, 2011 at 4:12 pm
ARGH. Is it official Cat on the Computer Day? No one warned me – I missed the memo. (Bet Scratchy really hates wet doggie nose on that sleek coat. I can see the frenzy of cat fur cleaning now….) Good job Bongo
November 21, 2011 at 4:16 pm
Karen, Cat on the Computer Day it must be. As long as Scratchy doesn’t get more paint on his paws and dance on the keys. All I have to do is get near Scratchy and he usually leaves, wet kiss or not – so he didn’t hold the fort down on top of the computer for long.
November 21, 2011 at 4:59 pm
It’s a cat thing…. don’t take it personal!
November 21, 2011 at 6:01 pm
Amy I guess you’re right. Scratchy lies on all kinds of things. At least he doesn’t get on my bed.
November 21, 2011 at 5:01 pm
Time to buy Scratchy his own laptop? 😉
Funny little anecdote you got here, Bongo.
November 21, 2011 at 6:02 pm
Thanks Nel. I don’t think Scratchy would no what he’s supposed to do with a laptop. He doesn’t even have his own blog and he keeps trying to steal mine. Maybe we could get him a box that looks like a laptop. He’d never know the difference.
November 21, 2011 at 6:07 pm
How funny…Bongo, I think it’s another weird cat habit. When I leave my laptop on the couch, Roory is almost always there, taking a nice snooze. Something about that warm computer…
November 21, 2011 at 6:38 pm
Deannamelanie, I wonder what it is about cats? They always have to lay on something. When my person leaves clothes on the bed Scratchy doesn’t just lay anywhere on the bed – he’s on the clothes that are on the bed.
November 21, 2011 at 6:25 pm
Silly Scratchy. We think he is jealous because you do such a good job on your blog. 🙂

November 21, 2011 at 6:39 pm
Brown Dawgs, I think you’re right. Scratchy is jealous of my blog. Thanks for saying I did a good job.
November 22, 2011 at 8:47 am
Scratchy was keeping it warm for you Bongo 🙂
November 22, 2011 at 9:29 am
Bassa, I wish Scratchy would keep my bed warm instead. Then if he didn’t move I could just lie on top of him.
