Still Hittin' 'Em Right Between The Eyes
I have long thought it would be a good idea to post pictures of the reasons we cannot get things accomplished because of our cats - so here goes:

Welcome to the official "Why I Can't ... " thread where we post pictures of our cats preventing us from doing some task or thing we need to do but can't because the cats are somehow preventing us.

I'll start ...

This is a picture of an apple pie I baked tonight to take with me on a visit with dear friends tomorrow ... you will notice a big, gaping hole in the middle of the pie. This hole is actually a George pawprint and happened when he jumped up onto the counter and right into the pie. So ... the title of this picture is "Why I Can't Take Pie To Visit Tomorrow"



OK, now you all try it ... *grin*

"Why I can't get my schoolwork or grading done"



I mean, who could move that adorable little guy when he wants to take a nap on my students' papers?

Posting for Daddy...

"Why I can't get my taxes done..."



and

"Why I can't use my printer, so can you please turn yours on..."



Cindy's typical obstructionist activity happens either on the stairs or on the back walk as I'm heading to the car. One of her nicknames is "toll cat", since she flops on each successive stair or paving stone to collect a scritch. But in neither of those situations am I carrying a camera to document it.

Well, we are currently trying to get packed for our house move - and of course boxes are far too much fun to put boring stuff like book in - so I guess this is

'Why I can't get the packing done!!!"

I have similar problems to many of you. This is why I can't sit on my computer chair...would you move her?


This is why I never travel. Would you leave her?


This is why I'll never use this bowl again for food...would you tell her she can't use it for a bed?


This is why there is plastic on my dining room table, and why I never eat off of it:


This is why I can't make the bed:


This is why I can't sit at my sewing/craft desk:


And this is why I can't sit on the couch:
