Barley Fat Cat


I know you already know this cat. But still, this is Barley, the impulse adoption/purchase I got with my tax return last year. Recently, this cat must be either feeling left out or going through a mid life crisis or is just feeling too frisky because the Spring is right around the corner because even though I love him so much, he has been getting on my last nerve. So much so that I was so excited when I used up the rest of the wrapping paper for Daren's birthday present (the BIGGEST George Foreman in the world) and then bopped Barley over the head with it and was so excited because it scared him!

And now it keeps scaring him!! The only thing I really wake up to other than my alarm clock is the stupid cats. Barley jumping up on my dresser and knocking off anything he can get his paw on. And Sushi flicking her claws on the side of the litter box. Except for now, I sleep with the empty roll from the wrapping paper (aka Barley's Beating Stick) on the side of the bed or in the bed above my head or behind the pillow and all I have to do is make a noise with it and he immediately stops whatever he is doing. Love it, love it, love it.

Umm....and the best thing in the world is that he is actually responding to Fat Cat. :-)

Oh, and I stopped feeding them twice a day because I am being serious, Barley is fat, so unless their bowl is literally empty, then fineeeeeee, I will fill it up a LITTLE. This was taken from I Can Has Cheezburger and it truly depicts my silly, not so starved cats.

haha i saw that pic on there and i lost my mind laughing.

i sleep with a tiny squirt bottle. i've gotten very good at aiming right at my cat's eyes without even opening my own or moving much more than my arm.

BARLEY LIKES WATER KATHERINE! I tried that damn squirt bottle for I don't know how long, he likes it! I was thinking about switching to acid!

I would like to take credit for the Barley Beating Stick. I believe it was my idea. :-P
