Hairy Coffee!!! >. - Jessie T. Wolf
Hairy Coffee!!! >.|
This morning, after I got up and finished washing up and everything, I felt really good. And so I went upstairs to make coffee. And it was some DAMN good coffee too. :-P It was perfect, and I usually don’t make perfect coffee very often. And so… I turned around for TWO seconds, to put the milk back in the fridge, and when I turned around, a CAT walked past the counter… RIGHT over my f*cking coffee, and got HAIR in it! Like… LOTS of hair!! X.x And I was like, “Awww… DAMMIT!! You idiot!!” and he ran away. And I had to dump my perfect coffee down the sink, and make myself a new cup. And it tastes like crap now. >.<
This SAME friggin cat… the evil white one, with the gray patch on his head… he ALWAYS finds some reason to conveniently walk past any kind of food/drink I’m trying to prepare on the counter. I can’t use the bloody kitchen anymore, cos everything I make to eat gets cat hair infested. Gah!! *throws her arms up in frustration*
Current Mood: Stupid Cat!
..why don't you just train them to stay off the counters?

When you have 40+ cats, it's kinda hard to do that. O.x They're litterally everywhere. :/
So can a Remmington M1100 :P
But the supersoakers leave smaller messes =P
I would be kicking his pussy ASS lol. Especially if he does it a lot.
Water pistols work wonders for belligerant felines. Ya gotta get over your fear of cats hon, they aint nothin'. Grab that sucker and throw his ass outside!

I'm not afraid of OUR cats. :-P And he originally came from outside, but I can't throw him back out... even if he does drive me nuts. >.< My mom would kill me. O.o

*lol* I always have to worry about cat hair when I'm eating in the living room, instead of my room. Artemis loves to be around me, cause I'm his mommy. When the people we got him from handed him over, he came to me, not mom. ^_^ But, because he always likes to be around, I have to watch that he doesn't get fur in my stuff. And, Trouble will act like she just loves me, if I have food. She'll hop up next to me, and start rubbing her head on everything nearby, trying to con me out of food, and she usually getsher tail in my food.
*pulls a cat hair out of her mouth* Cat hair is everywhere.

You don't have to train your cat, just nect time it does it take out a pair of hair clippers and buzz his fur off. Problem solved. :0)

My mother's late cat - known to his friends as Brian - learned rather quickly not to jump on to the kitchen work-surfaces after a sniffing-encounter with an uncapped bottle of some cleaning-product which utterly reeked of Ammonia.

In this case, them getting onto the counters can't exactly be helped, because that's where their food bowls are. :/ They can't be on the ground, otherwise the dogs will eat the cat food. There are just way too many animals in this house.
See... what I recommend training that stupid white cat to do is RUN away everytime you're in the kitchen. When I was making instant noodles he tried to stick his head in the pot of water before I boiled it. So I grabbed his head and stuck his nose in the water. He apparently did NOT like that. *evil grin!* so he scampered off and wouldn't go near the kitchen while I was cooking. I had to dump the water out and wash the pot, and then refill the pot again, but it was a lesson learned for that little stinker.

He's worse than Junior. O.o At least Junior's cute about it, so you can't get mad at him. It's that cranky, evil looking white one, with the gray triangle on his nose... the one that likes to hit people. He's just a meanie. And I swear to gods, he DELIBERATELY tries to piss people off. >.
Could you possibly get something that cats don't like the smell of ... something that can easily be taken away at feeding time and then put back afterwards?
I'm sure there are products one can buy that are designed for the purposes of keeping cats out of gardens. A garden/DIY store might have some in stock.
There are also natural items that can be placed that have the same effect (dogs?) but I can't recall off the top of my head. Gardening lore isn't my forte. :P
Then again, I suppose there's always the risk that the kitties would permanently associate the bad smell with the counter and refuse to go near it to eat, period. Difficult dilemma ... sorry I can't be more helpful, I'm more used to hamster rearing than cat rearing I'm afraid.
Failing everything else, you could always ask 'em telepathically to keep off the counter til mealtime - or send a mental 'Oh no ya don't bub' if you see one heading for the worktop. Cats are very psychically receptive. ^_^

*nods* If we only had a FEW cats, it wouldn't be a problem... but because we have over 40 (I'm not joking either) they've taken over the whole upstairs section of the house. X.x Even my mom can't keep them from staying off the counters, and stovetop (we have an island) and dinner table. You kick them off, and they just jump right back up again.
This ONE cat in particular though, ALWAYS decides he wants to get to the food bowls, RIGHT when I need to use the counter. I SWEAR he does it on purpose, just to piss me off, and it works. >.< And no matter how many times I spray him with the water bottle, he keeps on doing it. It's just one of those things I can't really do much about. This is another reason I'm looking very forward to finally moving out in January. :-P
how can you have a crappy cup of coffee? personally if it has caffiene in it its a good cup of coffee to me.
i wouldn't know much about cat hair... DOG hair on the other hand is everywhere, i can't so much as walk out of the house without being covered in it -_-;
i suppose you could have some sort of motion detecter that makes some sort of noise so you know when they're on the counter... but you might end up setting it off more than your cats do... i guess i'm not much help either :p

Hee, lots of interesting ideas anyway. ;)
Meep!! *hides under covers* ok ok so we felines tend to be mischivous, tho the white and grey cats are the most evil, take it from experience.
