Saturday Morning Cat Mischief

"Don't even think about it," I warn as she tries to slink back to where she had been.

At first, she had settled next to me. She was in cute kitty mode. Of course, I had known that she was up to some mischief.


Kitty teeth in a computer cord is not a good thing. It is also not a new thing around here.

I scold her and shoo her away. Queen Kitty knows that she is not permitted to chew computer cords, but that does not stop her from trying.

She returns, and I issue that warning. Of course, it is a futile warning. She has already thought about it. That thought is a frequent one for her.

Must. Chew. Cord.

She has kibble. She has toys. She has television to watch. She has siblings with whom she can either play or argue. However, that is apparently not enough to occupy this little kitty.

Must. Chew. Cord.

Finally, tired of trying to get past Guard Mommy to get "her" cord, she decides to settle in and groom herself. She will resume her attempts to get the cord later.

Kibble and toys and playing with siblings aren't things that will draw your attention. Chewing on the computer cord is an activity certain to draw your most-wanted attention. Queen Kitty knows how to play the game. : )

Queen Kitty is currently resting up for her next attempt at a sneak attack on the cord. The thing is, she's not as stealth about it as she likes to think she is.

Dear Queen Kitty,

What's the fascination with cords? Have I been missing out on something? Do they taste really good? Should I start chewing them?

Sincerely, Guiness the Cat

They are never boring to live with. Hope she learns soon.

Guiness, she has always loved cords of all sorts. Within the past few years, she has eaten two computer cords and destroyed one set of ear buds.

While she loves the taste, I very much advise you not to start chewing cords. Somehow, I do not think that your human would be any happier with it than I am with Queen Kitty's cord chewing.

Oh, I don't think there is any danger of that. She is going to be 11 this year, and she's been crazy about cords (and the tails of catnip mice!) since her kitten days.

lol she will not then, she is just trying to keep you alert

The "baby" likes to make sure that I am alert as well. She's not a chewer, but she has all sorts of things she gets herself into... She is the only cat who has ever sent me to the doctor... and more than once.

Hi. It's Mildred the Cat. I understand the desire to chew computer cords. I did it myself when I was very young and my mom wasn't happy about it. Now since my mom lets me use her laptop to write, I no longer chew the cords. I like the wicker furniture better!

Sounds like she wants mommy to pay strict attention to her, my other one used to do that until I'd play.

Sometimes, my three dogs try to hone in on my computer activity. Have a blessed day!

Hmmm - I have not tried computer cords. They sound fascinating. Do they taste like tuna? - Morpheus

She will sneak back to it when you are not looking.

Well now, what a mischievous kitty cat, lol. I have not had a pet cat in so long I honestly forgot that they would have a desire to chew computer cords!
