The Tablecloth

IZA:  TBT took off the plastic tablecloth from the dining table (we are not fancy) today an spread it out so we could see all the damage.  We werent sure iffen that meant we were in trubble or not, so we checked it cautiously.
Marley an Ayla said they couldnt recall doing anny damage to it.  They were right, this was all MINE!  I was proud of some of the holes I ripped out.  It did take some extended werk.
While Ive always had ta do this sittin inna chair or standin up from the floor, I demonstrated my teckneek as best I could.  See?  I both chew AND claw!
I can get my whole front leg in there.
Here is a 2nd place...
And a 3rd.
I started on a new spot ta show off.
And had a 4th hole within an hour.
Amazingly, TBT just took an IDENTICAL one out of the closet an put it on the table.  He only said fer me ta go easy on that one an rip up this old one.

That is a beautiful work of art Iza. Will you stick with the old tablecloth or are you going to start a new masterpiece?

Not only am I impressed with your efforts, Iza, I am also impressed with TBT that he let you have the tablecloth and pulled out a new identical one! I wish all humans were so well-prepared.

Eric and Flynn - I will stick to the old tablecloth for a while. It is more convenient on the floor PLUS TBT have promised ta kick me (gently) iffen I attack the new one. Plus, the spray bottle is sitting on the table now.

Katnip Lounge and Max- I never eat pieces of the tablecloth. Yuck!

Sparkle - TBT has finally come to realize that anything he like stops being sold in a couple years (like Mountain Fresh Dial soap, Diet Coke in 16 oz bottles, certain Faded Glory shirts, certain New Balance shoes, etc). So stuff he likes, he stocks up on. Like the tablecloth. Unfortunately, this new one is the last one he has, so I think it wise not to damage this one TOO fast. He thought 3 of those tablecloths would last a decade or more.

That was before I came along...

What you described with our blog is a reader problem. We've periodically had it happen with other cats when they've made no changes, so it just happens with some blogs sometimes. And it seems pretty random as far as how many readers it hits.

Oh Nellie, if we had a bare wood table to get at, we would scratch it up fierce! You should see what we have done to TBT's wooden waterbed frame at all the corners!

Hi! It's been a loooong time since mommy sat at da puter long enuff fur us to visit and comment. Our mom covers our tables wif dem plastic kind too. She goes and gets dem at Walmart, but she keeps telling us to take it easy on dem cuz she can't find ones she really likes anymore. She sez dey is all ugly now.

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Iza, and Marley) said...

Z,S,and S - All the more reason when Mom finds one of annything she likes, ta get several!

Sweet Purrfections said...

We can't believe you actually admitted to doing it. We always blame "not me".

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Iza, and Marley) said...

There ARE things I will admit doing. I was PROUD of this scratching an chew werk.

Laura and Taffeta Rose said...

Eggcelent, Iza! We think it is a werk of art. Maybe TBT will hang it on the wall when you are done. 'Course then he will need to find more that he likes . . .

(Laura here) Good plan, Mark! The trouble is, like ZSS's mom, I can't find things I like anymore.
