Friday Funny

My cats are not accustomed to closed doors.  They have access to every room in the house and always have the option to come and go as they please.  Similarly, Robert and I are oblivious to sleeping with cats walking or lying all over us, attacking our feet under the covers, jumping on and off the bed and playing thundering herds in the middle of the night.  So imagine the cat crisis which arose when my Mother (who was not that thrilled with their midnight mania) stayed at our house and actually SHUT THEM OUT of her bedroom at night!!!!  They hung around her door looking bewildered and incredulous, how could it possibly be that a) this door is shut and b) someone does not want us in there with them?  Casper was quite persistent and did his best to try and lure my Mother out by being especially cute and vocal....


um, excuse me this door seems to be closed

in case you don't know I'm out here I'll stick my paw underneath so you can see it

if I can just get a little more leverage I'm certain I can get this door open

I can see you walking around in there

::waving paw under door::  hello, hello?!?

maybe from a different angle

come on out, I'm showing off my tummy!


I ask you, who could resist those efforts :-)

Oh my gosh! I couldn't resist that! Besides, if he was vocal, how do you sleep with him out there anyway? Better to just let him in and sleep furry!

Alex aus dem Gwundergarten said...

Haha... :o). Me not of course. I guess I would even let him take over my bed, my fridge, my life :o). Very cute.
Have a great Weekend.

LOL! Too funny! I long ago gave up trying to keep my bedroom door closed at night, but unlike you, I don't sleep through the louder shenanigans during the night. :-)

I never close any doors it's not worth the hassle - anyway the scratching, yowling and head butting noises demanding to be let in are more likely to keep me awake than than having my face patted during the night.

We totally understand and we hardly ever see closed doors here!

Marg said...

MOL, now Casper that was one terrific effort. I don't see how anyone could resist those white paws. Grandma must be a strong person. Too cute. We love this post.

Rene said...

I could not resist him, that's for sure! We have the same thing here. The cats don't like closed doors, even the bathroom.

Cara n Crew said...

mol! we can't believe somebuddy wouldn't want you in their room, Casper :) you know, there are doors here that are always shut and we're ok with that...but if our mom closes a door that is usually open...well, that is just.not.right. hee hee!

Oh Casper! How could she resist you????

#1 says that, before she got her first kitty, she always used to sleep with her bedroom door closed. After she got him, she started to leave it open but it took her quite a long time to get used to having it open!

Purrs,
The Chans

Tamago said...

Oh how cute! With such adorable tummy and paws under door, it's impossible to keep the door shut!

colehauscats said...

MOL! Casper, that was hilarious (even though we know you were being quite serious)! Purrs...

Bellen said...

I certainly would have let him in, but then, I wouldn't have shut him out.

Casper soooooo made me laugh! We tried doing that to Cody once.....and ONLY once!! It was the same scenario!!

Bernadette said...

What a show! It's almost worth closing a door just for the show!

Clooney said...

Oh Casper, you are such a cutie! I mean who could resist your efforts and your adorability?
