Tricky Animals

Hello out there in the Bloggosphere,

Did you know that Fanta and I are both very good at practical jokes?

Fanta's jokes are fairly simple.  She does things like leaving her toys in places Mum is likely to trip over them if she gets up during the night.

She also has a trick where she sits with Mum on the couch, or lies beside her on the bed, and when Mum has to leave the room for a minute, Fanta spreads out over the couch, or the pillows on the bed.  When Mum gets back, there's no room for her, because Fanta's taken up all the space.

My trick is a bit more clever than that. (No, not the time I left a dead mouse among the presents under the Christmas tree, or a corpse in Mum's shoe - which Fanta copied recently.)

My best trick is to hide, and when Mum's not expecting it, to launch at her, and stick my claws and teeth into her.  A variation of it is when Mum goes to put my toys away in my hidey-hole, to grab her hands and sink the claws in. Another variation is to smooch up to her, purring, and then suddenly grab, claw and bite.  Yet another variation, is to lie on the back of the couch, behind her head, and just suddenly decide to do her hair with my claws.

Did I mention that the best tricks make Mum yell?

Well, Minions, I hope I've given you some ideas for great practical jokes to play on your humans.  Remember playing tricks on your humans helps to keep their minds functioning, and their reactions fast.

Until next time we meet in the Bloggosphere,
