So Barney has been bad lately - he is in that phase of kittenhood. First, he has learned how to jump up on the counters in the kitchen, and on to the stove (we keep the knobs off already because on at least 3 occasions I have bumped them, turned on the gas with no flame, and not noticed). Then, last night I noticed that someone (most likely Barney) had chewed through the wire on my headphones (thank goodness it was only the headphones and not something plugged into the wall). There was a left side but the right side was no longer attached. Then tonight we had takeout from The Cheesecake Factory (oh, shoot, I have a cheesecake in the fridge still - Red Velvet Cheesecake) and I had Fried Macaroni Balls - and he tried to take one! He started to go for my corn cakes and then faked me out and grabbed a Macaroni Ball! I caught him with it right away but the point is that he picked it up. He is always trying to steal stuff but this is the first time he actually got my food!
Oh, and the other badness in the house is that someone (I didn't see who - they are sneaky) has peed on the new floor! To be fair, there was a laundry basket that fell over and they were trying to pee on that (my clothes of course) but it got on the floor. But still - they were bad either way. At least it was dirty laundry, so it needed to wash anyway. I use this stuff called Out that a girl at work recommended - it works really well either on carpets and things in the laundry (thank goodness). I will wash the stuff twice but it really probably only needs the one time.
I love the cats, don't get me wrong, but sometimes I just want them to understand English so I could tell them to behave and actually have them understand. Heck, even Spanish would be ok because Brad speaks that pretty well. I will try to have more pictures tomorrow - right now Barney and Virgil are running around like maniacs because it is time for their dinner.
