Does this cat look remorseful to you? Well, he better be remorseful. He's on the timeout bench for the second time in a week. Yes, Mr. Percy has been very naughty. He is like a bull in a china shop, full speed ahead all the time and wrecking anything in his path.
Yesterday he knocked a table and the cable box on it to the floor. Crash, bang. Luckily he was ok but the cable box not so much.
The cable is out now. I chatted with Verizon twice and I spent a long time trying to figure out the problem. The first time it took the guy 20 minutes to look up my account. He had my name, address, phone number and back up number and still could not find my account. Eventually the online chat timed out and I got disconnected.
The second time the guy was competent. He found my account right away and we ran a series of tests on the system. Still no signal. I am going to have find my original remote for my TV. I only use the Verizon one so I am sure it is going to take me a while to find the original one from 2008. Yikes!
And here he is giving me that I am the boss here and you better get used to it look. He's on the timeout bench here because he ate some of my food.
So here's the story. I was eating some very delicious ravioli for dinner. Spinach and scallion that I bought at the Farmer's Market. I was thinking I should give myself another helping so I put two more in my bowl. I was watching TV and about to eat the two I had left when I heard a loud crash in the kitchen.
Oh no! I went back to the ravioli bowl and the two raviolis were intact. I wanted to eat them but I figured Percy had licked them so I threw them out. Actually if he had eaten the scallions he probably would have been sick. Cats can't have onions. Their systems can't break down an onion.
Anyway, he is just fine. He's used up two of his nine lives in a week.
Right now, he is sleeping on my feet and lightly snoring. How do I know he is snoring? Because the house is so quiet you can hear a pin drop! There is no TV, so no noise.
He better help me find my old remote.
