COT: Sneaky Cat Manoeuvres

I'm in my office, working on a piece, when Au walks in, headbutts my ankle, says, "Meow!" and marches out purposefully.

This is a signal that something serious is amiss.  Either his bowl of kitty crunchies needs topping up, or the water glass is not up to the standard our senior cat expects.

I get up and follow Au - who then suddenly ducks, double-backs, and jumps up into my office chair. 

Then he sits there, laughing at me, as I realise I've been tricked out of my chair. 

Au has a wicked sense of humour.

There's a knowing smug look on Au's face. And that's a lovely fur collecting cover for your office chair. :)

Good one Au, I think this chair is beautiful and it looks a wonderful place for a nap! LOL
I think the true, you only want to be by mommy's side there and maybe help her a little bit as well! Well done!
