Tortie Tuesday

It is tough being the boss of a household. I rule with an iron paw but I'm also a compassionate leader.

This new cube, for example, is clearly mine, but I let the others use it too. I always have my eye on them when they use my toys so they can be held accountable for any damage done to them.



You can see my lasers in the background while Bella leaves the cube after a play session. She's new here so she may not be familiar with all the rules.




Of course Sweet Pea is using it inappropriately! She is half in and half out and could very well bend the frame.




Her reaction is typical of the teen cat that she is. She doesn't care and even has the nerve to lay back her ears when I admonish her.




My concubine Samson has certain privileges. He is hanging his very large head over the edge, which will likely lead to some stretching around the entrance. He is so cute that I hardly notice.




If only all my housemates could learn to use this cube to its full potential it would stay perfect.

P.S. It seems that Samson has been out visiting other girlcats! We have an open relationship, so it's fine with me. Click HERE to see his visit to The Beaded Tail girls.

Delilah, we fear you're fighting a loosing battle.

It must be hard living in a multi-cat household. When my cube gets damage I immediately KNOW it was caused by Milo! Although he ALWAYS denies it!

Goldie, Shade and Banshee said...

That is a big responsibility Deli! Do they handle the redirection well?

Catherine said...

That looks like such a fun cubicle to play in! That's nice that it is being shared ~ hopefully it is kitty proof and no damage is done! :)

Have a lovely Tuesday Delilah!

It's VERY tough to be the ruler, Deli. Such responsibility--it can be quite weighty.

But you know what? When/if your cube becomes damaged, that will be time for your human to get you a new one. That's a pretty good deal, really. :-)

It's hard to keep your things nice when you got so many other cats who aren't as careful as you are. Delilah! Ernie chews holes in my nip nanner...how rude of him!

Delilah, I don't know if it is going to be possible to train all of them. I think you need 3 more cubes.

Good luck Delilah. Have you tried charging a 'user fee' each time they use it so that when (notice I didn't say 'if') it gets damaged or worn out you can buy a new one?

We hope your PAWesome cube doesn't get all mangled from the misuse. Your laser picture really made mom LOL!!!

Delilah, looks like you have your paws full making sure none of the other Monkeys damage your cube! Since Samson is coming to visit me now, that's one less Monkey you have to worry about!

We have a feeling that someday Bella may try to take your spot Delilah.

Marg said...

Good job Delilah taking care of your cube. You do need to keep your eyes on Bella and Sweet Pea. But they will learn the rules. Don't be too hard on them.
Love the visit with the Beaded girls Samson.
Have a great day.

Cat said...

That cube looks like a lot of fun and I'm wondering if my guys would like one.

It's nice to see Bella joining in!

Sammy and Andy said...

Deli, we think you have a full time job there!!!!!!!!!!

Hmmmmmmmmmmm, does that mean that Sammy can teleport you over to spend the day with him sometime???? You know Sammy has always had a "thing" for you!!!!!

Angel and Kirby said...

You are so good to share.

loki said...

Delilah, humans complained about the young generations, it seems to be the same with young kittens...Hopeless!

Oh Samson, dating a ladycat? Oh la la... Go Samson!

CCL Wendy said...

Well, somebody has to snoopervise it! You're doing a very good job, Delilah, but I think you'll need to give some lessons on its propurr use. That Sweet Pea is still young and doesn't know to cube-sit yet, obviously!

The others do pretty well, though, including you, of course! You're the expurrt.

Eric and Flynn said...

We hope you get them all trained properly in the use of the cube.

Stacy Hurt said...

So now I'm here too & that woman that feeds me won't stop laughing at this post. whatever.

Samson is indeed a fine Mancat; glad you have an open relationship as our shecat gurlfriend Issy over at Beaded Tail is all aflutter!

Delilah; you and I would get along fine; Queens in separate territories but Regal Rulers just the same. Truly, the RiffRaff must be kept in serious check. All Hail!
