The Cat Is Bored…..

boredMaslow, the furball baby, is bored.

He is bored because no-one is paying him any attention. C is out and I am working from home. Despite the cat. Maslow has done everything in his power to distract me. He has played with my computer cables. He has stolen my pen. He has sat on my pad. And, he has walked up and down my keyboard.

Once it became clear that he was not getting any food, he has been running around the house like a demented thing, howling at make-believe monsters that live in the corners of the ceiling, and chasing sunspots.

And now he is playing with his toy mouse. The killer instinct. You never lose it.

    I had a small and enterprising Yorkshire Terrier once. It was bored one day and decided to have a chew on some cables under the desk. Somewhat to my surprise I heard a bang, lost Internet connectivity and saw the dog disappearing at a rate of knots. There was a smokey trial following it. I then noticed the dog had chewed through the router’s 240V cable ! A bored animal is an enterprising animal. Bit like crew members on a ship. Or a bored Alan Partridge.

      I had a colleague who had the same problem with a pet rabbit. More fool him for keeping it in the house.
