T.G.I.F. Try Grabbing

      46 Comments on T.G.I.F. Try Grabbing

Okay, this is a tough one!  My friend Fin from Housecat Confidential is celebrating Scafflaw Week, which is a celebration of rule breaking across the land.  Of course, she asked her friends to participate.  So today, T.G.I.F. means Try Grabbing It First.  You’ll see what I mean in a few minutes.


So why was this a tough one you ask?  Well, I’m such a good cat I hardly ever break any rules.  OK, if you’re done laughing…I’m serious!  We have thousands of pictures of all of us and we had to go through each one of them looking for evidence of some sort of rule breaking.  Nothing, zero, zip, zilch, nada!  So we went through them again, slowly.  We finally came up with one, which is really not what it seems.

T.G.I.F. = Try Grabbing It First


I know, I know, it looks like I’m scratching the furniture, but I was really just having a good stretch.  Oh, that hole in the chair above where I’m scratching?  It was there already.  OK, are you laughing again?  Really it was, this chair is very old and was scratched up by a cat or cats that came before me.  Seriously!  Well, I may have added my own little touches, but not that many.  So there, out of thousands of pictures we found one, and only one.  What kind of rule is “Don’t Scratch the Furniture” anyways?  Thanks for the fun Fin, we all appreciate it!!!

So what’s up this weekend?  I don’t have a clue if we are doing anything exciting or not, so we’ll just hang around as see what happens.  Y’all have a really great weekend…and obey all the rules!

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

    I break some rules but I'm not stupid enough to let the human capture them in that flashy box!!!

    Isn't it amazing that when we're doing something 'naughty' the humans grab the camera rather than scold us?

  3. Max the Quilt Cat

    Brian… I can't believe you're even touching that chair. Of course you're not scratching it.

    Yay for breaking the rules. I have an idea of a picture to put up of me breaking the rules. Now I'll have to see if I can find it.

    Happy TGIF

    We believe you, Brian! You do seem to be good kitties, really.

    Actually, our mom didn't participate because she, too, would have had to look through thousands upon thousands of photos. Oh sure, Nicki is naughty, but she never has her camera handy–she's too busy yelling at him or running for the squirt water bottle. MOL!

  5. Poppy Q

    I hear you Brian, I get told off for scratching the couch but it was Puss, the cat before me that started it!!

  6. Marg

    Brian, we certainly do believe you. You would never scratch that chair would you??
    Hope you have a super cool week end.

  7. The Kool~Kittie~Krew

    We totally believe that hole was there before you! Our two couches have a B~I~G hole in them (from Scooter-RIP), but now Cricket thinks that you're supposed to scratch them! She keeps getting yelled at. Dad says she's walking a thin line…he's so full of crap! MOL~!!!

  8. Furkidsmom

    Nice Stretch! We know you would NEVER scratch the furniture.

  9. Mishkat

    We knew you were a good kitty, Brian! And we think the rule about scratching the furniture is that once it's started, any cat is allowed to finish it.

  10. Cheysuli and gemini

    I scratch on the furniture. My dad says I will never be better than 82% good if I don't stop.

  11. cats of widlcat woods

    The thing is never get caught breakign the rules – so that's why there is no evidence! Happy Friday guys!

  12. Cat

    You're perfect, I"m pefect…we're perfectly good at not getting caught doing imperfect things!! We should form a club…The Perfect Boys Club…no girls allowed cause girls aren't perfect (they are just quick..like Tiny…she does bad things all the time, but she's really quick so she never gets caught. But Mom knows because Tiny forgets to wipe her paw prints off the TABLE!! Shame!!) and we good, sweet, smart, sexy boys are irreproachable! Yeah. That's right. Purrs, Lautrec

    Of COURSE you're just stretching, Brian! We totally believe you!

    We hope you and your sisters have a great weekend. 🙂

  14. AFSS

    Well I thinks you broke the rule don't make your girlfriend look bad. (Sigh) I break so many rules Mommy has given up making me behave. ~Scylla

    PS: I guess having a purrfect mancat for a boyfriend could come in handy. Mommy can't object to me spending time with such a good cat.

  15. Katnip Lounge

    Brian…a)are you and your sisters really cats…or b)just really CLEVER cats? We think the answer is "B"!

    We are going to have a rain nap. Sorta like a rain dance, only napping instead.

  16. Old Kitty

    Awww beautiful Brian!! You were erm.. stitched up! LOL!!! The scratches were already there and you just added your special touch! Me and Charlie know you are a very good law abiding kitty! 🙂

    We are also waving to your equally lovely and law abiding sisters Zoe, Gracie, Sascha and Dolly!

    Take care

  17. CCL Wendy

    I believe you Brian! As long as we have been following you, we have never seen you misbehave. You're the one who sets the good example for all your sisters!

  18. Jacqueline

    You look pretty busted Brian=photographic evidence is tough to get out of, sweetie!!…Happy Friday…kisses…Calle, Halle, Sukki

  19. Sparkle

    I thought the rule was, "If it feels good, scratch it!" So you still haven't broken any rules.

  20. Pierro

    Awwww Brian, I am sure you did not make that big hole in the chair. Those ones that came before were so destructive and sooo naughty!
    I can see that you are just showing daddy the big hole in the chair

    Happy bonkful bonkbonk week-end!

  21. ABBY

    I guess we all break or bend the rules just a little here and there. It's not a bad thing — just a bit naughty. Think how boring it'd be if we didnt do a little something "bad" now and then!



  22. Ayla and Iza,

    We believe you Brian (wink, wink).

    But doesnt yer innocence kinna leave you out of the running?

  23. Ayla and Iza,

    Us again. We just learned that while we were visitin YOUR blog, You were visitin ours. The exact same MINUTE!


  24. Siku Marie, White Dog

    What kind of "crime" is it really when you get your photo taken instead of being sent to time out? It's like "ok, punish me with a treat!"

  25. Au and Target

    Of COURE you don't claw the sofas. And OF COURSE that hole was there before. We believe you.

  26. Your Daily Cute

    Brian, can you come live here and I'll send Moo over to your house? You seem so well-behaved… 🙂

  27. Sharon K. Mayhew

    We broke the dog walking rules at our house today… we did two two mile walks instead of one. 🙂 Macy was not at all upset with her crazy humans….

  28. Fin

    Have I mentioned how much we always love to see how you work in a TGIF. Great work this week!!

    You're just barely naughty!

  29. MoMo

    I haven't shown anything but it's not due to the fact that I am a good cat and don't break rules. It's because my SS is snowed under with work after the glorious time in Kauai. I don't even get visiting time :sigh;

  30. Sagira

    You are such a good kitty. I never break any rules either (ha ha…okay that totally made me laugh).

    have a good weekend. 🙂

  31. ♥I am Holly♥

    Brian, that is such a great picture of you!! Who ever heard of not breaking rules anyway! Lots of love, Holly and mom
