Repost Friday: Office Chair Kitty

This post is from 22nd March 2007. NOTHING HAS CHANGED!

Office Chair Kitty

Au on the office 
chair
Au and I are having a tussle over the office chair. When I go into the office to switch on the PC first thing in the morning, Au is firmly ensconced in his seat. Ears back, he'll glare at me as if to dare me to move him.

I leave him be and go downstairs to make coffee while the PC boots. While I'm gone Au rolls onto his back and hooks a claw into the fabric of the chair. By the time I get back upstairs he's lying there, pretending to be fast asleep.

Au usually gets his own way. If he wants a sofa spot, I’ll sit somewhere else. If he is in bed first, I'm willing to curl around him. But work is different. "Someone," I tell him sternly every day, "has to earn the cat biscuits. And unless you start typing, you’ll have to give way on the seat."

When I pick him up to move him to the bedroom, Au whimpers, sticks another claw into the chair, and pretends he's wounded to the core.

Cats! They're so histrionic!

What IS it about those office chairs! If only he COULD type!

I was in Glacier National Park in mid-September. The temperature was very comfortable wearing jeans and a short sleeve shirt. As we climbed higher in elevation, it got colder. When we were very near the actual glacier, it was rather cold and we put on our jackets. I had no idea what a glacier looked like up close. I thought it would basically look like a snow field as it does from far below.

I find your experience with your cat endearing although I'm not much a cat fan.

Well, Au cannot sit in two chairs at once, so maybe you need a second office chair............

Tell Au if he wants to sit in your office chair, he has to bring home the bacon! Au, now you have to do a weekly column and Twitter each day!
