Mister Naughty Pants Bides His Time – Wordless Wednesday

Mister Naughty Pants - Biding His Time

Mister Naughty Pants Bides His Time

Thought For The Day
After scolding one’s cat
One looks into its face

And is seized by the ugly suspicion
That it understood every word.
And has filed it for reference.
Charlotte Gray

Recently, I spent the weekend cleaning out my closets and dresser. I went through every piece of clothing I owned, filling my bed with piles of clothes to keep, store and donate. In the process, I cleaned and lined all of my dresser drawers with pretty new paper.

Since the day was hot, I stepped out briefly to get some water. When I returned, I could not believe my eyes. There lay that huge hairball himself, Mister Naughty Pants, sprawled across my freshly lined drawer in all of his fur-shedding splendor!

Mister Naughty Pants was happy as a lark. Apparently that drawer meant more to him than I realized. It meant so much to him, that he wrote about it in a special post, Mister Naughty Pants’ New Toy Box.

Unfortunately, I was not in the mood for fun and games at that moment. I was hot and tired and in need of a nap. So, I did what most people would do in that situation. I unceremoniously booted my baby from my drawer, gave him a new box to play in, and went about my day!

Mister Naughty Pants - Life From The Slum Brown Box

I now fear that I may have acted in haste. Every time I enter the bedroom, I am haunted by images of Mister Naughty Pants lying in wait for me, potentially plotting my demise. Wouldn’t you be, if your cat continually returned to the scene of the crime (his words, not mine) and sat staring at your dresser – without blinking – or glaring at you from his “slum brown box?”

Anyway – if I mysteriously disappear in the near future – send out a search party and put Mister Naughty Pants at the top of your Person Of Interest list! He has the motive. I’ve shared the evidence. These photos are worth a thousand words!

    Of course he’d want to lay on the fresh laundry, nice and clean…who wouldn’t? Trust a kitty to know how to live well!!!

    I wonder that sometimes myself, if animals actually understand what we are saying sometimes, the looks on their faces seem to say yes. 🙂

    Mr. Naughty Pants, I love it. The second pic is pure evil, lol. Such a cat.

  18. LOL. When I first met my husband I caught his sister’s cat in the kitchen sink. I didn’t even shoo it away but after that it would hiss at me whenever it saw me in the kitchen. For years. Yup, it understood.

      My cats ADORE sleeping on Prince Charming’s clothes! He often leaves them scattered about just for them to find. I would say they have him pretty well trained. No wonder Mister Naughty Pants is pouting – he is not used to being denied! 🙂

  27. Mimi says:

  36. Mirjam says:

  39. Becca says:

    Thanks for hosting!

  40. 🙂 them cats sure can glare. When my cat gets mad she uses her teeth to rip at my carpet, I’m guessing she’s wishing it was me she was ripping at.

  42. McGuffyAnn@ McGuffy's Reader says:

  44. Nancy says:

    Cats are inherently naughty and I love that. xoxo

  45. Camille says:

    He does look like he may be plotting something hahah!

  46. Susi says:

    What a beautiful cat. My own naughty kitty prefers my laptop keyboard and is non too pleased when I boot her off. I have the scratches to prove it. She has on occasion skyped one or the other contact on my list!!! 🙂

      See! Finally! Someone who understands! Naughtiness abounds in the feline world! 🙂

      Not only do my kitties love to type when I’m not around (and sometimes, right in the middle of my own posts and essays) – they have also been seen and heard making phone calls when they think we are not around! We are always careful to check our phone bills and to look for suspicious calls. Thank goodness we don’t skype!

  47. Katherine says:

    LOL Mr. Naughty Pants. Thanks for hosting!
