Good morning, friends! We are one "wake up" away from the weekend! Isn't that exciting? Saturday is so close I can smell it!
So I don't know if I've mentioned it before but M and I adopted 2 shelter cats a couple years back. One is the sweetest cat you will ever meet and the other one is completely rotten.
Garfield pretty much terrorizes us and destroys our house every single day. When he was a kitten I was actually terrified of him. He would take these running leaps at my head and if I made eye contact with him at the wrong time in the morning he'd charge at me and send my cereal bowl flying in the air (picture this happening because this is a true story).
Where am I going with this you ask?? Well yesterday something really exciting happened for M! He won't let me announce it to the world yet, but I decided to get him something nice as a "congrats" gift!
So at lunch I drove to the packie, got him a nice bottle of gin, then went to the party store and got some sweet balloons and a card. I tied everything up and left it on the counter so he'd see it when he got home last night...
Well I was all excited to go home and surprise him when 5:00 rolled around. I unlocked my front door, stepped inside and wanted to cry:( Rotten Garfield chewed through each ribbon, separated each balloon from the bunch AND he put a hole in the blue balloon somehow.
I walked in to find the bottle of gin on its side and the balloons scattered around the ceiling with short, chewed ribbons! I wanted to start sobbing right then and there:( Garfield ruined my beautiful presentation!
How do I know it was him, you ask?? There was orange fur on the counter as evidence!!!
My question for you ladies is this....
What can I do to keep this rugrat off of my counters??
ANY advice you can offer me would be appreciated. Please keep in mind he ENJOYS being sprayed in the face with a water bottle!
Moving right along....
