UGH! Betrayed by my body!

It went down a little like this:

Mom: "Kukka...what are you doing?"

I immediately freeze like a statue, pretending I don't hear her. After what seemed like an hour (but was more like 7-10 seconds), I began shoving the plastic register hood again.

Mom: "Kukka-Maria! Stop messing with the vent cover!"

I freeze again and continue pretending I've suddenly gone deaf and can not hear her yelling to me.

Mom: "Kukka! I know you can hear me because your ear is completely turned in my direction! Now stop that!!"



Who knew my own ear would rat me out?

Did you see a bug or mousie in there?

Kukka-Maria said...

Ah...you guys give me way too much credit.

I saw an opportunity to make some noise and get some attention. I wish it were as innocent as chasing a bug or mouse! I wouldn't have to go to therapy then!

That looks like a nice warm spot to sit in front of and hog all the air! Our's are on the ceiling so I don't get to get the direct air.

That's a good one Kukka. We'll have to remember that tactic.

This is the reason we need hats for cats - then our ears would not betray us.

Mom is always commenting about what my ears are doing. It's annoying, especially when she can tell I am just about to start thinking about giving her hand a little nip, and she says, "MOOSE, no biting." HOW does she KNOW??? It's the ears, damn them!

Yes, darn those ears......Mom always knows when my ears slant..I try to hold them straight.....they just go in the direction of sound......and you know what? Mom is always turning mine ears inside out!!!! The indignity of it, I snap them right back upright!!!

But the blowing air thingy is fun to play with! You're lucky yours is on the floor. Ours are way up high where I can't get to them. It;s not like you'll BREAK it...!

Mum has one of those too. She puts in on the heaty thing, I push it off so I can lay on the heaty spot.

You can't trust those sneaky ears....

At least you look innocent in the second picture and that's more important. Although, our Mom says that looking innocent doesn't help at all.

I'm not entirely sure it's the ears that give us away. My mom says she has a sixth sense about things like that.

Kelly Cat said...

At least she told you, so now you can figure out what to do about it. If I come up with any ideas, I'll let you know.

BTW, you have a beautiful face!

our body parts give us away....

Sebastian loves to swat anything and everything. Especially the toilet paper roll. Once he gets a hold of that, the whole roll is on the floor.
