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

Cat paw prints are all the rage now...;-)ReplyDelete
We painted over them, but they were kind of cute!Delete
How did you get the little bugger clean? And did your husband repaint? Or leave the paw prints?ReplyDelete
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.Delete
At least that stain is in a design completely unique to anyone else?ReplyDelete
Yes. Unless someone else had the same problem with their cat.Delete
At least the stain is now uniqueReplyDelete
It had a little character.Delete
Cats have a mind of their own, I well remember the antics of my cat Tabitha.Great read Sherry.ReplyDelete
Cats definitely have a mind of their own!Delete
Cats are always upto some mischief or other.ReplyDelete
Cats will be cats!ReplyDelete
They can sure have some attitude!Delete
will you be posting photos?ReplyDelete
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.Delete
It's so hard to keep things pristine with animals, but I can't live without them.ReplyDelete
They are unbelievably messy! I get so tired of all the hair everywhere - especially in the summer when they shed.Delete
I had a cat named Bootsy when I was a kid. :)ReplyDelete
Gotta love that cat attitude.
My kids named him.:)Delete
Cattitude has to be one of the greatest, and most accurately descriptive, words ever inventered!ReplyDelete
At least your deck (and Bootsy!) are uniquely decorated, lol.
Yes. They are definitely uniquely decorated.Delete
Cats: can package "Screw you" in a cute body.ReplyDelete
Haha! That's pretty much what my husband says about the cat!Delete
As soon as you had to tell the cat no, you were doomed.ReplyDelete
Yes. Bootsy doesn't accept "no" for an answer. :)Delete
Now he needs a bath. A fitting punishment.ReplyDelete
The trick would be catching him without getting all scratched up. He hates baths!Delete
The deck might have been quite warm.ReplyDelete
It was, but Bootsy found a shady spot.Delete
Was it hard to wash the paint off?ReplyDelete
Yeah, I think it's safe to assume that animals ignore signs.
I didn't bother. He'll shed off the fur, and it wasn't too bad.Delete
so now he has nail polish on his nails?ReplyDelete
Are Schultzie's ears still coloured?
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!Delete
How hard was it get the stains off? Naught cat!ReplyDelete
I think they're still on him feet, but it's all dry, so I'm sure it will wear off.Delete
Still happy, even with the new colorReplyDelete
He's probably the most fashionable cat in the neighborhood!Delete
A cat gotta do what a cat gotta do.ReplyDelete
Yep. He needed his nap!Delete
Of course the cat went exactly where you didn't want him to go...they like to show us who the boss is :-) .... ♡ReplyDelete
Yes. Cat is always in charge. ;)Delete
You what they say, "curiosity killed the cat, but satisfaction brought him back!"ReplyDelete
Haha! There was a lot of satisfaction there . . . for the cat!Delete
Bootsy wants to make as many headlines as Schultz does. :)ReplyDelete
I think you are right!Delete
Maybe he needs a reading tutor.ReplyDelete
Definitely! Would you like the job?Delete
Hahaha! Love to see a shot of the cat, Sherry! xoxoReplyDelete
Sorry, no picture, but he looked ridiculous!Delete
Cats. Love the attitude. Hate the shedding.ReplyDelete
Yes! Bootsy is doing a mega shed right now. What a mess!Delete
Guess the cat left his mark. Haha! #kneeslapperReplyDelete
Haha! You're a funny one! :)Delete
What a great name for a cat.ReplyDelete
My kids came up with that one. I thought it was pretty good, too.Delete
I know a rhyming cat who would do the exact same thing.ReplyDelete
