Giving Mom a Hard Time

As I told you in an earlier post, Mom finally got home Friday night after being gone all week.  I've been pulling the finicky routine on her and will only eat my stinky goodness if she puts it on her finger or buries treats in it.  I'm also ignoring her quite a bit as you can see by the fev-ver just laying on the floor and me walking by it.


Maybe this will teach her not to leave me for long periods of time again!  I just love to give my Mom a hard time.  It drives her crazy!

I always ignore my humans after they have left me for awhile. I love how it makes them worry about me.

Have mercy, honey! She didn't *want* to be away from you. On the other hand, a little reinforcing of where priorities should be never hurt! ;-)

You cats really hold a grudge. Three of our four cats still have not forgiven mom for bringing me home two years ago.

How rude it is that these hoomans think they can come and go without asking our permission!

Sometimes it's nice to give a hard time but what if your momma bought you some pressies. What would you do then?

Denita said...

Keep her on her toes, Praline!

Well, it is good you show her who is boss, but don't "cut off your nose to spite your face".

I am not complex enough to ignore Mom when she goes away. I am the opposite - I give her lots of attention, lots of purrs, lots of snuggles.

We understand completely. She shouldn't lave yoo like that!

Kea said...

You are absolutely in the right to do that, Praline. She should know better than to leave you alone like she has!

The Monkeys said...

It is best to keep them on their toes! We're sure your Mom won't leave you again, Praline!

We didn't do a very good job of ignoring our Mom and Dad when they came home. Do you give lessons?

Praline....you certainly know how to give your mommy the "cold shoulder"! MOL

Come on....give her a little break....she wasn't having fun....just working!

Hannah and Lucy said...

We're right with you - if you don't show aloofness when your mom comes home they think they can come and go just when they please!

Cindy said...

Yes, we agree. Our beans were gone part of this week and we are showing our displeasure.

Eric and Flynn said...

That is the right idea Praline. Make her suffer for deserting you.

The Paw Relations said...

That's right Praline. You go girl! Your mum needs to learn her lesson!

Busby and Raymond said...

Oh Praline how can you resist your stinky goodness?

Parker said...

Atta' girl, I need to take instructions from you. I stay aloof for about 3.5 seconds...

We're really good at ignoring mama when she leaves--for about five minutes.

Our moms should never ever leave us alone. They never learn, do they?

Brian said...

I think she probably understands by now Sweet Praline, give her a bit of a break...wouldn't hurt!

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Good job Prailine! We think that it is very important to keep moms on their toes!

We like that waiting for treats to be buried idea - we may need to try that!

AttieCattie said...

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

My human does not even have to leave town for me to treat her like that.

catsintrees said...

Good for you. Only we don't really understand the eating protest. Isn't that punishing yourself too?

ABBY said...

We always make sure that Momma earns our respect!
