Jimmy's Jerrycan

Naughty Jimmy has figured out that he can find cotton swabs, his favourite absolutely forbidden thing to play with, in the bathroom garbage.  On the weekend I came home and found the entire bin overturned and contents on the floor.

During this video the can was empty but I got tired of walking downstairs with my rubbish so now it has a giant rock (which I brought home from a beach in Scotland) on top to keep the lid down!

PS - I just love how he comes over for a camera sniff in the middle of his break-in efforts as if he wasn't being a little scallywag at all...!!!!

Roy said...

Well, he'll probably find something else to get into. I know ours do ..... all 6 of them.

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Oh no! Poor Jimmy! We agree ~ he'll get into some other mischief now ~ 'cos that's wot us cats do when we're thwarted! MOL!

Mr Puddy said...

Yeah ! Jimmy, we cats are smart !!! we figured out everything : )

Purrfect Haven said...

crafty! lets see how long it takes to knock that rock off! We love dragging off and killing Mrs H's blusher brush (we also think she prefers using it when its wet from chewing!). Love Darcy and Bingley xxx

YOU are very smart, Jimmy!!! I had not yet thought of it so now..I need to look in our can.

Fuzzy Tales said...

Jimmy, are you sure you can't knock that rock off the can? We're sure where there's a will there's a way. And failing that, we agree, there will be other things to get into! :-D

Marg said...

That is one thing we love to do and that is to get into things. That rock should do the trick. Kind of heavy to move that, isn't it Jimmy. Hope all of you have a great day.

Brian said...

Hey Jimmy, I think we will all come over and help you move that pesky rock!!!

Daisy said...

Wow, Jimmy, what an excellent trick!

Random Felines said...

So now the contest becomes how long it takes him to get the rock off. :) Mom has taken to hiding all of our trash cans for this reason.....

Hannah and Lucy said...

Tell your mom she's a spoil sport Jimmy - fancy spoiling your fun.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Rene said...

Humans sure know how to be killjoys, LOL! I love the rock, though I wonder how long it will stay there.

CCL Wendy said...

Poor Jimmy! Thwarted by a rock! Jimmy reminds me of Domino in his relentlessness. When he wants something he just keeps at it.

The Monkeys said...

Jimmy, Sweet Pea has the same guilty pleasure! She can't resist Q-tips!

LP said...

Jimmy, Lewis in days of old would have been your willing accomplice! Lewis would let LP clean his ears and clip his nails... even bathe him as long as he was rewarded with a few Q-tips to play with afterwards!!

Madi and Mom said...

I nearly fainted when you came up to the camera for a close up..OMC you are one handsome dude with a beautiful high flying tail.
Hugs Madi

Cory said...

Jimmy, mom squeeeeed a bit when you stuck your nose in the camera.

Clooney said...

Oh Mr. Jim! Must be a naughty "gray kitty" thing...Clooney would root through bathroom garbage too if he could, now it must be kept in the cabinet. He loves "cotton candy" (Goro & Niko's term)aka q-tips but can't have them as he snaps them in two and tries to eat them...

The Paw Relations said...

Jimmy is one clever cat!

Cats of Wildcat Woods said...

Oh Jimmy - dogs are supposed to do that kind of stuff..not us dignified cats!

meowmeowmans said...

What a smart boy you are, Jimmy! Sorry to hear that mean old rock ruined your fun.

Simba said...

We keep a brick in the bottom of our kitchen garbage can so it cannot be tipped on its side. Audrey has been the first one to go into it for things like corn cobs, sweet potato skins, etc. So we got a small one with a lid that those things go into and now only very benign stuff like paper towels, plastic wraps etc go in the other one. I hope we won't need a stone on top too!

TK and Squashies said...

Oh very good Jimmy! (Psst- you can head-butt that rock off of that can!)
Loved the bideo!

Catherine said...

Haha - oh sometimes kitties can be so naughty. ;)

The Very Best Cats said...

Jimmy, she foiled your plans! We can't believe she blocked your efforts. We hope you figure this rock thing out soon. Cotton swabs-they are the best.

Teri and the cats of Curlz and Swirlz said...

We loves qtips too! Teri gets the ones with paper sticks now so we aren't chewing on plastic sticks! She still throws her dental floss in the toilet cuz she's afraid we'll get into the garbage and into that (she keeps the lids to the toilet closed, too--easy cuz theirs no men around, hahahmeow!
