Keeping the Chair

21 Sep
 Scratchy in a desk chairThe other day I told you about my new computer that my person said she got for her camera.

I was pretty upset that a camera that doesn’t even have a blog would get a computer before I would.

But now I’ve learned that that camera has some competition for the computer.

You see, for a long time now my person has just had a laptop and she didn’t use it at the computer desk.

So the chair at the computer desk has been sitting empty.

Or at least it was sitting empty until Scratchy decided to take it over.

That’s been Scratchy’s chair for a long time.

And it really must be his chair because when my person tries to squeeze in next to Scratchy on the couch he moves.

So she figured he’d move when she sat down on the edge of the computer chair while Scratchy was in it.

But he didn’t.

He stayed on that chair like it was his.

I guess it is his. I don’t want it. It’s much too small for me.

So I guess Scratchy figured that since a computer got put on the desk where his chair is, the computer must be his.

It serves that camera right.

Scratchy watching the computer from the chair

But Scratchy had better not get any ideas about taking over my blog.

    Oh, Bongo …that computer looks a paw away from a Scratchy take over. Maybe you should watch it! 🙂

      Marina, I’m not only watching the computer – I’m watching Scratchy. He’s tried to steal my blog before and I don’t like it, not one little bit.

    Oh oh….I see your person having to buy an extra chair in the near future. It can be dangerous moving cats off chairs.

      Diane and Lola, cats can be so frustrating sometimes. I’m not sure which is better. When he’s up on something and out of the way – but could jump down on me at any time, or if he’s in the way, but where I can get him.

    I bet Scratchy wants his own blog now.

      Stanze, Scratchy has tried to steal my blog before, but he leads such a boring life that nobody would read his blog if he had one.

    Oh wow. I do see the dilemma there my friend. Let me tell you. Those purr things can be down right mysterious and devious. Don’t turn your back for a minute. You’ve seen the purr things here hijack my blog when I’m not looking. Keep your eyes open pal. XOXO – Bacon

      Bacon, Scratchy has hijacked my blog before too – but not for awhile because I’ve been keeping an eye on him. Guess I’d better watch him even closer now.

        Yes my friend. You might have to. I’m trying to get a hoof identifier put on my laptop so the purr things here can’t access my blog. It’s a work in progress trying to convince daddy that I really do *need* it. XOXO – Bacon

    That Scratchy is tougher than he looks. I’ll be waiting to read soon.

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake, you’d probably fall asleep reading a blog by Scratchy. He leads such a boring life that he’d never have anything good to write about. He’d probably just complain about me all the time. I know his kind.

    Bongo, don’t be afraid that Scratchy will take over your computer.. speaking from experience, he’s only there to sleep…MOL 😀

      Little Binky, I guess that’s what Scratchy does best. Thanks for making me feel better about things.

    That, s right Bongo…put your paws down, no way can Scratchy write a blog like you…..cats might be clever and cunning..but they have a long way to go to get the bette of you

      Thanks Patrecia. I don’t think anybody would read Scratchy’s blog if he had one.

    A new blog for Scratchy? Wow! It sounds interesting! Of course, your blog is the best, Bongo…but…..*whispers* I sometimes enjoy reading the posts Scratchy wrote, too….*Oops!* 🙂

      Kevin, nooooo! I guess Scratchy can write something interesting every once in awhile, but he would get boring if he wrote every day. Took a nap, ate food, used the litter box. What more could he say?

    Scratchy won’t leave the chair…I think those are designed to just fit cat bodies. RC has the same habit (Molly gets it moving with her nose until RC’s eyes are wild from the spinning)

      Karen, thanks for the great idea. I’m going to have to try moving Scratchy around in that chair.
