This is EXACTLY what AC does. Though given enough time, he’ll just eat it off the floor.
Happy New Year everyone! So yeah, it’s been like 6 months since my last post but c’mon… I’ve been busy. Busy enough that I couldn’t find time to post about AC’s shenanigans? No. But it’s easy to get complacent when your cat is a grade A douche-waffle. This blog would also get stupid repetitive if I posted every time AC puked/knocked something over/shredded a roll of paper towel/etc.
So what’s changed in the last 6 months?
When you live your entire life in a smallish apartment in Brooklyn, and even more to the point, when you are not allowed into one room of that apartment, and gain sparing access to the bathroom, you probably get a little bored with your surroundings pretty quickly. Seems that it’s taken AC about 4 years to reach that threshold…
One of the more peculiar things I’ve noticed about AC is that he likes to drown his toys. When this first started, I did a bit of research to see why this occurs and was met with many results explaining that it’s an instinctual left over from their days in the wild. Some say it has to do with masking the scent of their meal so other won’t come looking for it, some say it was to actually kill their prey. The common thread amongst these posts is that cats will do it indiscriminately amongst their toys.
AC, sure he’s a wild one, but he’s not “wild” or ferral, he doesn’t display street cat tendencies like his sister DC does (the winning theory on this is that momma had a train run on her, both AC and DC are from the same litter, but obviously have two different fathers.)
The one thing I’ve noticed is that AC really only does this with toys that can absorb water… like that pic you see up there. At first I thought it had something to do with things looking like living creatures because most of the plush or fabric things I get are mice looking things, but he’s done it to plush balls as well. I always seem to find them when I’m walking through the apartment in socks and get that oh so creepy “squish!” when I step on it. :/
While the lolcat pics that accompany most if not all of the posts here generally refer to the wiles and neuroses of AC, this particular one is more my mindset. Over the past 36 hours, my email has been somewhat bombarded by Tumblr notifications of new followers (and I love all of you equally… except for you, you’re my favorite…), and I have to admit I’m taken aback as to where the flood is coming from.
Sure I’ve got my Google Analytics telling me that this huge spike is coming from StumbleUpon, but that doesn’t tell me much. So my question to all of you new followers (remember I love you!)… how did you StumbleUpon (see what I did there?) this somewhat permanent record of my misadventures with AC? Did you search for something? Did you just get linked here by a friend? Is SU just suddenly seeing the genius behind this blog and handing it out to anyone that will listen? Inquiring minds want to know!!! Mainly mine. :)
So if you wouldn’t mind, drop me a line in the comments section and please enjoy your schadenfreude while reading about the hell that is my daily existence with AC.
So the other day I accidentally locked AC in the bathroom overnight. Seriously amazed I didn’t find this out until morning. I guess I deserve this one.
On a similar “oops” note… accidentally broke the commenting system the other day while trying to snazzify this piece. I mean… AC must’ve done it, yeah, that’s it.
Here’s AC not being so much of an asshole but rather being kinda interesting.
I’m coming up on about 3 and a half years of being a “kitteh daddeh” as I’ve been called… I figured it was time for a new poop box for my little monsters. I present to you, the iShitBox Pro! Or if you want to get technical… the Booda Dome Clean Step Litter Box.
It looks like an Apple product to me, or at the very least an Apple Store. So I felt it was only fair that I slap one of those free Apple stickers that came with my laptop on it. There are some other subtle double entendre’s going on here but I digress…
