How bored do you have to be….

.

I’m the first to admit Lord Dudley Mountcatten is a trifle odd. But the other day? He really made me wonder.

.

.

Because this is what he did for a good 35-40 minutes.

.

.

He sat… and stared at a corner of the kitchen.

There was nothing there. No spider, no fly, no mouse, no toy, no bag of catnip.

I hadn’t spilled tuna fish juice or dropped a crumb of bacon.

Nothing. Nada. Niente.

And yet, he stared.

.

.

Then looked up at me as if to say, “ I don’t know what I’m doing either. But I can’t seem to stop.”

Cats.

They really should come with an instruction manual.

  1. There is something there, cats don’t just stare at something just to stare. Charlie does that a lot, then later on he some in with small lizards or bug of some type in his mouth. He does that a lot with tony spiders, one got stuck on the tip of his nose the other day and there I was staring at him for like five minutes because I couldn’t figure out what it was until I put my glasses on. Just because we can’t see what they are staring at doesn’t mean there’s nothing there…..lol. Unless it’s a tiny spider stuck to your cats nose….🙄.

  2. As the Huntress said, you can bet there is something there, even possibly an ant that went under the baseboard. Cats are very patient hunters, but don’t realize that just because something disappeared in a place that does not mean it will come out in the same place. We may not understand them, but cats have reasons for everything they do.

      1. Aw. Even red squirrels have their place in nature. There is no need to hate anything, and lots of reasons to love everything. We all come from the same source, and I do not mean anything religious.

      2. I live all creatures, except her. She chewed through our barn wall. She chewed through our garage. She chewed through the woodshed. Then she chewed through our gutters and made a nest in our house eaves. She bred a whole family of chewers and I had to forcibly evict the lot of them. She is my sworn nemesis.

      3. That’s crazy. I’m an only child… and my husband is one of 9.
        He’s #2 in the birth order…. If you are also, we might be mirror images.

      4. Lol. I am No. 2 on the other end. 2nd last to be born. But seems we do have a lot of similarities in our present lives. (Not being mean, just being curious. Was your mother a school teacher/principal who knew everything you did in school, and made you do 4 hours of homework EVERY night so you would not have time for boyfriends?)

      5. She wasn’t a teacher/principal, but certainly knew everything. I always wondered how… she told me many years later she git the dirt from the crossing guard and gym coach. They were in her bridge club.
