Battle with Cat for Coffee

Battle with Cat for Coffee

You think I'm exaggerating when I say I have to battle my cat to get my cup of coffee.

Well, don't take my word for it. Here's a full video of a typical morning, attempting to prepare my daily caffeine fix.

And this is after I have fed the cats! 

I don't think I could have held the camera steady to try recording without having fed the fiends first. One demanding cat is bad enough. I would have two on the counter and a dog circling my feet, assuming I hadn't fed any animals yet.

Normally, I have a hand free and I hold his head back, but even then, I have lost many a battle, a coffee cup, my sanity, and spilled much precious coffee.

Look what happens when I set it down again for a moment and then try to pick the cup up for another sip. That's Rascal at his best.

I try not to cry over spilled milk (and joe), but it gets old. Really old.

    1. Not the word to that comes to mind in the moment, but I suppose it is sweet. Though the rest of the day he might completely ignore me!

  6. Maybe Rascal doesn't approve of Yuban? Or maybe he just thinks he is a better energizer than caffeine!

  7. You are sure "helping" a lot there, Rascal. We suspect that's why the coffee gets made around hwere while we're eating in the mornings.

  8. hahahahaha!!! That was great!! And you picked the purrrfect music to go with it to!
    That is SO much like my kitties! Especially when I am sitting at the computer, KiKi likes to jump up on the keyboard and "help" me with my work haha! One time she even shut the keyboard off on my laptop.....not sure how, but I had to reboot the computer to get it working again! BOL Silly kitties.
    Happy PP!

    frum our pack at love is being owned by a husky

    1. I would have been so mad! They certainly are "helpful" and often when I'm crunched for time!

  9. MOL Rascal and Rocco, mew guys are too funny!!! :D

  10. My sister Constance always head-butts Peep #1's hand if she's holdin' a glass of somethin' and Connie is on her lap. Many a changed top or nightie have I seen.


  11. Too funny! Looks familiar - my gang makes eating breakfast (or any meal really) a difficult task. Most of the time we have to put a couple of them in the bedroom or bathroom so we can eat in peace!
