IKEA What You Did There

“All right, the next step is you’re supposed to put the wooden pegs we just put into the short pieces into the long pieces and fasten with hex wrench. And then after that, you’re supposed to put the cat into the box and then bolt down the top lid so that the mailing address to Abu Dhabi is visible on the… HEY!

    Holding all of the different screws and bolts in a muffin tray (or sorting tray of some kind) is brilliant. Cheers to the cat. 🙂

    P.S. My calendar just arrived and it’s awesome. Thanks for making it.

    Kitty looks so hurt!

    But his nose has arrows so you know where to boop!

    Every part in it’s place .. every part placed to be inspected by Inspector Kitty to ensure proper placement and tightness.

    We never thought of placing screws and such in a muffin tray, we’ll do it next time for sure because every time the 5 cats come around and try to play with the stuff on the floor.

    The good news, I just got my Cutetropolis calendar and it’s great! There’s even some Holidays written in French!

    OK now the bad news, and Mike don’t take this the wrong way because I’m very happy with the calendar but … There’s one little misprint, on August 7th in French it says : congés officiels/provinciau, the x is missing at the end of provinciaux.

    Actually, the name of the Holliday in French is “Congé statutaire du mois d’août”, but since it’s not observed in Québec the only French speaking province, who cares what it’s called! LOL!! 😜

      Notice TREET intake hole also comes with handy markings for easy identification. IKEA thinks of everything.

      Speaking of TREET intake holes…last night was my last night cat-sitting and Stripes decided he need all my attention just as I was going to bed at 12:30 (way too late to begin with). He walked all over me (literally), kneaded me in the boniest spots of my torso for maximum pain, then proceeded to alternate between nuzzling my shoulder and shoving his head under my hand so I was forced to pet him, then finally settled down next to me on the bed, whereupon I rested my hand near his head…

      AND THEN HE BIT ME!!!!

          The knuckles at the base of the first two fingers on my right hand are now connected by a faint red line.

        That was a love bite. My cat Penny is like that with my husband, there’s a point where he has to stop petting her or she’ll bite him.

        Some cats are jerks.

      • Skimpy October 7, 2016 / 3:45 pm

        My neighbours will think I’m mad. I just laughed at the top of my voice (and it’s pretty late).


        They should indeed come with operating instructions.

        • Kar October 8, 2016 / 12:49 am

          Its not exactly like the missing instructions for suit from Great American Superhero,

        Ok, topic for debate: Most painful place to step/knead?

        My vote would be my throat. Literally, mine likes to knead my larynx and see if my trachea will bounce back if compressed.

        • SoccerSue October 8, 2016 / 1:17 am

          Owch! Mine will lie next to me under the covers, and if I’m lying on my side when she goes in head first, every time she stretches a paw out I get a set of needle-like claws poking me in the butt. 😛

            Steppping on my boobs and my hair right near my scalp across the pillow when I am lying down, which feels like a sharp yank. When Romeo was alive him and big orange, yelly- flappy lips would delight themselves by playing full speed chase across me. It was like been run over by a car, first set of wheels and insult to injury second set of wheels always on the boobs and hair. *arrggh and sigh*

        Allein, the cat thought you were going to keep petting and was trying to tell you that the petting session was over, and he wanted to sleep. Cats are very firm when it comes to petting schedules – it’s up to us mere humans to read the signs and obey. 🙂

    Reminds me of one of our favourite very old “Herman” cartoons. Not popular enough for me to be able to find it, but it went like this:

    Herman, with cardboard box, at PO counter:

    “How far can I send this cat for $10?”

    We have been known to invoke this quote, when one of ours is being particularly…cat-like.

    • ffleur October 7, 2016 / 7:39 pm

      Your Herman cartoon reminds me of one we always quoted in my family when I was growing up. The cartoon had a boy talking to his mom with his dad standing in the background. The kids says: “who are you going to believe? Me, your own flesh and blood or some stranger you married?”
