We did something very rare last night – we watched TV (Fringe, which just really hits my weird tastes). So all we wanted to do is sit down, get comfortable, have a little quiet, and watch TV. Try that with a Herd living in a house. I am so glad I have Tivo so I can stop the show as needed. Took almost two hours to watch the entire program. No wonder we don’t watch much TV.
First, Rusty wanted to sit on my lap in a recliner at the end of the couch. Notice that the TV screen is still on the menu, so I have not even started the show yet.
When that did not get my attention enough, he went to phase 2 – pulling himself to block the TV. Except, he was not in the line of sight. Good try, buddy.
Ok, come on up. Turn on the TV. Qannik gets jealous. Decides he wants in my lap, too. Notice how motor mouth is loudly complaining about the injustice of it all. Louder than the TV volume, just for the record.
Rusty in a moment you rarely see. Defending his turf.
Which leads to this series of events. In my lap.
Meanwhile, Natasha comes around the other side, spies my beer glass, succeeds in a couple of sips before I get it away from here, and savors the taste.
Kiska gives her best “Look at me, I am not causing any problems” look. It would have been far more convincing if she was not also dragging her claws down my leg in her subtle attempts to get ear scratches.
