Getting My Own Way

"Humans need to know who's boss"
Mr Bumpy.
Hello out there in the Bloggosphere,

As you know, I like to get my own way.

For example, the humans think I don't need to go outside any more because I have my fortress that I can go out to any time.  So they won't actually open a door for me.

But I still get out when I really want to. I've developed a technique.

When Mr Woof asks to go out, I back up from the doorway a fair bit.  (I need a good runway, and I want the humans to think I'm not trying to leave or they'll try to catch me.)  This works best when Mr Woof wants a wee in the middle of the night and Mum's only half awake.

Mr Woof always stands in the middle of the doorway for a little while trying to decide if he really, really wants to go outside after all.

While he's doing that, I have my run-up, launch and fly over the top of him and I'm free. From there it's easy. No human can catch me if I don't want to be caught.

It's an important thing, making sure I can do whatever I like.  Humans need to know who's boss. They can't just be left to think they're in charge.

Sometimes they have to be shown that their rules don't mean anything. And sometimes, they need to be walked over, just in case they get above themselves.

Until next time we meet in the Bloggosphere,
I remain,

Mr Bumpy,
Supreme Feline Overlord,
Feline Pawty Prime Minispurrial Candidate.
