Mischief is common in my home. Manna and Dexter are very playful and spritely. Cats are great at making mischief cute. My kitties know just what to do to make me laugh. It is something about those eyes! They are pretty good at playing little kitty pranks on each other too.
I must confess, I get in my share of mischief myself. I’ve got to keep Manna and Dexter on their toes! Here’s one of my favorite pranks to play on the kitties:
I wait patiently until one (or both) of the cats falls asleep. Then I quietly sneak over to the kitty and place a really fun toy on top of them. If I’m feeling particularly mischievous, I will continue placing toys on the kitty, one by one, until the kitty notices. The fun part is when the kitty wakes up and reacts to the toy!
After doing a bit of cleaning, I found a tiny brown catnip mouse hidden under a piece of furniture. Manna swears that she didn’t put it there, but I’m not sure if I believe her. Dexter was sleeping in the middle of the living room floor and I couldn’t resist!
Needless to say, Dexter found the tiny brown mouse. When he saw it, his pupils got huge! From the way he looked at that mouse, you would think that the mouse must have insulted him. He gave that mouse a good kick and chased it all around the room.
Before Dexter fell asleep again, he wrestled that mouse to the ground. Whatever that tiny brown mouse said to him, it had to have been pretty offensive. Did he think that the mouse tricked him by climbing on top of him in his sleep? Just look at those eyes (and those claws)! I was able to get a great funny cat picture to share with all of you.
