Painted Cat

A week or so ago, Schultz, our German Shepherd, had a brush with some paint. This time, it was our cat's turn.

The big project this past weekend, was staining our deck. My husband was outside in the sweltering heat, doing it. When he was done, he put up all kinds of signs indicating that nobody should walk on it.

Apparently, our cat, Bootsy, didn't read the signs. He tried to climb on the deck. My husband caught him and chased him away. That didn't stop the crazy cat from trying again.

A couple of hours later, my husband spotted him on top of the rail, in his favorite napping spot. 
"Come take a look at your cat," he said.

I looked out the window. There he was in all his glory, with stain splotches covering his fur coat. I shook my head and went over to the sliding doors. Little paw prints could be seen on the stain. I opened the door and stuck my head out. "Bootsy, what do you think you're doing?"

He opened his eyes, stared at me for two seconds, and then resumed his nap.

Talk about some cattitude! I think I need to send him to the dog house!

  1. Did you have to bathe him? Because there is nothing more frightening than trying to bathe a cat.

    1. Bootsy hates baths! I'm just going to leave him alone. it's not too bad, and I'm sure he'll shed it off.

  3. How did you get the little bugger clean? And did your husband repaint? Or leave the paw prints?

    1. Little bugger still has some on him, but it's not bad. We painted over the paw prints. It's dry now, so you can't see them.

  4. At least that stain is in a design completely unique to anyone else?

    1. Yes. Unless someone else had the same problem with their cat.

    1. No. The paw prints are covered now, and Bootsy doesn't look too bad. It would be kind of like the paint on Schultz's ear.

  9. It's so hard to keep things pristine with animals, but I can't live without them.

    1. They are unbelievably messy! I get so tired of all the hair everywhere - especially in the summer when they shed.

  10. I had a cat named Bootsy when I was a kid. :)

    Gotta love that cat attitude.

  11. Cattitude has to be one of the greatest, and most accurately descriptive, words ever inventered!

    At least your deck (and Bootsy!) are uniquely decorated, lol.

    1. Yes. They are definitely uniquely decorated.

  12. Cats: can package "Screw you" in a cute body.

    1. Haha! That's pretty much what my husband says about the cat!

  13. As soon as you had to tell the cat no, you were doomed.

    1. Yes. Bootsy doesn't accept "no" for an answer. :)

  14. Now he needs a bath. A fitting punishment.

    1. The trick would be catching him without getting all scratched up. He hates baths!

  15. The deck might have been quite warm.

    1. It was, but Bootsy found a shady spot.

  16. Was it hard to wash the paint off?

    Yeah, I think it's safe to assume that animals ignore signs.

    1. I didn't bother. He'll shed off the fur, and it wasn't too bad.

  17. so now he has nail polish on his nails?
    Are Schultzie's ears still coloured?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Schultz's ears a normal again. It took a few days to wear off. (A bath didn't help.) Bootsy probably has painted paws. I am not motivated to give that cat bath! He's impossible!

  18. How hard was it get the stains off? Naught cat!

    1. I think they're still on him feet, but it's all dry, so I'm sure it will wear off.

    1. Haha! There was a lot of satisfaction there . . . for the cat!

  23. Bootsy wants to make as many headlines as Schultz does. :)

  24. Maybe he needs a reading tutor.

    Love,
