Stupid Cats

video

About a year ago I installed a pet door into the door of a large utility closet to keep the cats locked up at night. What I mean by large, is that the cats basically have their own bedroom. You see Bogart, our orange fat cat, likes to wake everyone up in the middle of the night by knocking stuff over or starting fights with the dog or jumping on our faces.

I used to have to chase the cats, every night, trying to lock them up just so we could get a good nights sleep. The stupid cats caught on and did their best to hide from me at night. It would take me a half-an-hour, every night, to herd the cats.

So I got the pet door.

Before I go to bed, I flip the red switch on the pet door which allows the cats to go into the closet to use the litter box or get food, but it locks the door preventing them from coming out. No more chasing cats. No more cat's ass on my face in the middle of the night. My problems were solved.

It took the cats one year to figure out the fricking piece of shit pet door. Watch the video.

OMG that cat is HUGE. I can't believe it can fit its fat ass out the door. Sheesh.

Are you missing one of the kids? I think the cat must have ate at least one of them.

Nobody locks Bogart in the corner.

Cats - 2
William - 0

Never underestimate the persistence and intelligence of a creature that can lick it's own butt.

Hi William, Thanks for your comment. You get "it". I think art is truly a religious experience! My mother was friends with Jamie W. of the "Helga" paintings. She got her niece "Uncle Joe's" daughter a job cleaning house for him. My mother made many visits to Chads Ford in our lifetime. Andrew W. was her most favorite watercolorist. Funny post about the kitty door! Elizabeth

1. I love how the cat waited a few seconds, like he really couldn't believe he got it open, before going through.
2. I can't believe he fit through. That is one seriously underbelly. ;)

Wrong title to this post, they are "smart cats". Smarter than the average bear. (Watch out for Yogi)

ok I'm sorry but I am ROTFLOL literally. I'm not sure what is funnier, the cat busting out or the fact that cat is HU-AGE! I have two fairly new (and small) cats and in order to avoid the ass in face at night we lure them out of the bedroom with treats then slam the dooor...

You think your cat's a smartass? Wait till you give the boys a curfew!

Karen said...

You think that's bad. We have five cats (one who weighs a whopping 25 lbs) who all know how to open our cabinets, drawers, and our folding closet doors. Had to put child safety locks on them to keep the buggers out at night.

And now that he knows how to get out, he'll pay you back by horking a hairball in one of your shoes.

kalki said...

Hee! What cats lack in brains they make up for with persistence.

(My word verification is "catied" - I think you've been catied, dude.)

First, this was very amusing to watch! The kids came running to see what I was laughing at.

Second, we have two cats who look about the same as your's. We REALLY limit their food, yet they don't seem to lose weight. A friend recently told me that she put her cat on a raw food diet and the cat lost a lot of weight very quickly and is now at a healthy weight. She give the cats 4 oz of raw meat twice a day. So about 8 oz a day. Organs, she said. Heart, liver, etc. Keeps it frozen and and thaws it every night to feed the next morning. She said it is MUCH healthier than the dry kibble we all feed our pets. They are not meant to eat that crud. Makes sense to me! I need to look into it and wondered if you would be interested to help your poor overweight kitty out! LOL That is quite a flap of oooze has hanging and flapping around! POOR GUY!

Our cat has a fat waddle like that. We love it. Nothin' better. My favorite part of the video? When Bogart looks at the camera like, "Ha! I did it." Funny stuff!

I bought this Pet Doors and love it!

Does you cat have a goiter?

GERBEN said...

OMG! Your cat has a giant fat belly just like my cat!! LOL, I'd say that's one smart cat.

movin' down the road said...

You can totally see it on the cat's face, when he freezes...it's like, inside his head, he suddenly goes, "OOOOOOH!!!!!!"

raisingtheboys said...

That. Is. AWESOME. Both the stomach on that cat and the breakout.

Do they make a crib version cause Shea is about to go AWOL an time now.

RzDrms said...

We, hubby and I inherited his moms cat, she passed, anyway, the damn cat is such a pain in the but at night, she lays on us and yes, thinks we want up-close and personal time with her winkie, in-our-faces!! If I try to stick her in our huge laundry room with all of her creature comforts she yowls, so I don't know what to do with her!!

'cuz I'm the mommy, that's why! said...

We have the same cat door on our laundry room, and the same cat parties in the living room. Come to think of it, I woke up with a fat-ass cat sleeping on my pillow today. Whose house is this again?
