We know you all do it. We’ve seen plenty of you on your own blogs. And don’t even try to pretend you don’t know what we are talking about.

L to R: Lily Olivia, Astrid and Mauricio

That’s right…stealing your human’s warm chair when they stand up. Even though we only have two humans, the kitchen has four stools. When the humans each lose the first seat they have warmed, they move on to an unoccupied stool. (Yes, we have trained them very well.) Of course, as soon as they arise again, they lose those stools to another two of us. You realize this means four of us have to remain on the heated kitchen floor or find another place to nap. So the arrangement isn’t ideal, but it still has us on the warm stools and the humans standing. S-C-O-R-E!

Wishing you all an easy and snoozy Sunday.

Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Our mama is laughing right now and says this looks just like our house. Personally we think she is somewhat goofy and should be ignored at this moment. We do however like the chairs after the hoomans have pre-warmed them.

It works both ways. I confess to sitting on cat-warmed seats.

You cats have stool stealing down to a fine art. As we have said often before, there is strength in numbers! 🙂

As it should be! I play musical chairs with Pop. I poke him when he’s sitting at the table. He gets up and moves to the other chair. I poke him so he has to get up and we switch chairs. This goes on until he gets mad and yells at me. What a meanie.

How nice of the humans to warm up the stools for you. Our Mom does that for us, too, but sometimes she insists that we move, like when she wants her rocking chair or her computer chair. How do you train them not to want a kitty-occupied chair?

Yup – I get up to make myself a cup of tea and by the time I get back to the computer room, SOMEONE is sitting in my chair. And it’s not Goldilocks. 😉

good job on chair occupation!!! Well done! I am so strange, when I read the title of this post I thought it related to poop……I’m certifiable 🙂

You have a real system worked out for your fun game. We like to play it too. Our pawrents say things like “scoot over and let me sit down” but we just ignore them. We pretend we don’t understand what they are trying to tell us. We don’t think they have caught on to the deception yet. Love, Cali, Andy, Tater and Shelly (C.A.T.S)

Whisppy January 19, 2014 at 1:02 pm

If we did that to Mommy, she would come back to the SAME chair and wiggle her way back onto the seat. We’ve obviously not trained her well enough. Do you give lessons?

You have a great system going there. I hope it also works on the couch and bed.

GREAT technique!! It’s nice to have human seat warmers isn’t it? The minute they’ve done their job and moved on, we’re right there to enjoy the HEAT…….we’re so smart that way aren’t we?!?!?!
