(This archived Clinchfield Report was originally posted on Facebook on 08/20/2015.)
We can either have bath mats where they're supposed to be or a kitten, but not both. I don't know if you can see in this picture, but there are Q-tips on the floor as well. Walking further into the bathroom I saw that the garbage had been tipped over.
(Note: This is before we replaced the waste baskets that I mentioned in this report.)
Here's the culprit after I straightened the mats, planning his next move:
As I'm fond of saying, he's lucky he's cute!
After I posted this report, one of the comments that came in was, "Not up on all things cat, but can't you just close the bathroom door?" I replied, "What's the fun in that? :) Yes, I could, but he'd probably bang on it trying to get the toy that he batted under the door. There's quite a gap there."
Steve and I staged this picture so we could post it as an example. I said, "Picture this but with noise."
Then Steve commented, "This morning in the bathroom I tried to startle him out of my way by nudging the bathmat against his hind leg. If he were Pixel, he would have jumped three feet. But Clinchfield didn't even turn around, just lifted his leg like "meh." I realized: He's not Devil Cat, he's DAREDEVIL Cat, the Cat Without Fear!"
Tonight my mother and stepfather are bringing their dog, Cappuccino, for us to watch. Goodness knows what kinds of things I'll be posting about tomorrow and for the next week or so!
