I hope my silence on the matter didn’t lead you to believe my cats have suddenly turned into angels. The reality is I just haven’t had my camera as handy lately, but a discovery on Sunday warranted a new episode of bad cat behavior. I went to print and, well, noticed the printer wasn’t going to work very well.
Before I get claims of being a bad cat parent by allowing my cat to do this, I will tell you the precautions we have made at our house: 1) we have NO (and I literally mean not one) plug-in lamps, 2) we created this charging station to hide our cords, 3) I have tried various “cord deterrents” with no success, 4) I charge all other things that aren’t in the charging station in the bathroom or closet. We knew we were in trouble when, as kittens, we discovered a phone charger suddenly in two pieces. Next to fall victim? A pair of headphones. Then my laptop cord. Now, the printer cable.
Lucky for us, we had another printer cable on hand and I was able to print what I needed, but that didn’t lessen the frustration. Brandon and I took a chunk of the afternoon re-arranging our charging station and now have a strict “no printer cord left behind” policy. Printer cords are to be put away after each use. What did the cats have to say about all this?
“What did I do?”
Of course they had to recover from their mischief with a good old-fashioned nap.
No, that’s not a seal, it’s just Stuart…
