WAFFLES: Hey Boss? Are you using this scratcher?
KATIE: Seriously? What does it look like? Of COURSE I'm using this scratcher.
WAFFLES: Because you're not really scratching. You're just sitting.
KATIE: Waffles, it's a scratcher/lounger. Just like the scratcher/lounger upstairs. Just like the scratcher/lounger downstairs. Just like the scratcher/lounger a few feet away from where you're standing RIGHT NOW. Four scratcher/loungers. We have four.
WAFFLES: But I like this one.
KATIE: Waffles, it's exactly the same as all the other ones.
WAFFLES: No it's not. I like this one.
KATIE: Ok, Waffles. How is this scratcher different from all the others?
WAFFLES: I don't know. I just like this one.
KATIE: Does this have anything to do with the fact that I'M sitting on this scratcher?
WAFFLES: Um. No?
KATIE: This townhouse is not big enough. Not for me and Waffles. Not for any more scratchers.
I know what you are going through - kitties are really good at looking out for themselves!ReplyDelete

It's always the scratcher/kitteh tree/litterbox you're using. You have my deepest sympathies, Katie. -ReplyDelete
There are benefits to being an only cat, Katie. Just sayin' ;) --TrufflesReplyDelete
Funny enough, we are all pretty good about sharing loungers and beds and scratchers. Just not so much with treats.ReplyDelete
Uh oh! Waffles, you need to "suddenly" discover the fantastic qualities of a different scratcher. Right. Now. ;)ReplyDelete
We'll just scratch together.ReplyDelete
Our Ben does this too Katie but he will shove his siblings out of what he wants to take over. I just ordered this scratcher! Funny coincidence. But I had to return the Sleepypod today. None of the kitties wanted anything to do with it. I had to pay twice duty fees! Argh!! Ah well. Have a great day on your scratchers guys!ReplyDelete
It's the same thing here Katie. Never failsReplyDelete
Katie, you'll have to take your scratcher into the closet to get any peace .....ReplyDelete
sounds like you need a Waffle sized addition to the townhouse :)ReplyDelete
Katie, I have the same problem around here. Though mine is named Ernie and not Waffles. ;) ~WallyReplyDelete
Kids!!! They always want what you've got!! So immature! MOLReplyDelete
Men, whether human or cat, just don't make sense. Four identical scratchers seems to be quite sufficient, but we know if you move to another one, Waffles will then want that one. Katie, you are a saint to put up with all of Waffle's foolishness. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista JoReplyDelete
Something about another cat enjoying themselves just asks fur an investigation and maybe an self serving invitation! MOLReplyDelete
Katie you have two paws full, no question about it.ReplyDelete
Yup. That's how it works around here, too, Katie. ::sigh::ReplyDelete
Totally typical little brother stuff. "If I see you, I will bug you".ReplyDelete
Waffles you ARE a typical little brother. In every way! Mom said she saw all my human brothers acting like that too! Katie, you're a saint.ReplyDelete
Yup..I agree with the others...little brother has to annoy big sister..it's his goal in life..MOL..ReplyDelete
The best scratcher is always the one that someone else has.ReplyDelete
The grass is always greener and the scratcher is always more appealing when someone else is using it.ReplyDelete
The Florida Furkids
We have one like that and everyone wants it too. LOL.ReplyDelete
ummmm yeah Katie...we have kind'a over done the scratcher products around here tooReplyDelete
Katie, you need to teach that orange tabby a thing or two!ReplyDelete
Yeah, Derby and I went through that too. When I had something, he wanted it and then it worked the other way too. That's Life!ReplyDelete
That looks like TW in the gym. Two treadmills but she can only use the one that’s occupied.ReplyDelete
