Ha! Here I am, sitting on the “forbidden” table, the supposed no-cat zone, the off-limits plane for all but me because I’m a special snowflake. I’m Tessa, a.k.a Danger Cat and danger is my business!

No one will tell me what to do. No one will tell me where to go. I will do what I want and no, my middle name is not, “GET DOWN!”

The only fly in my kibble soup is that pesky, self-appointed “cat” who thinks she’s the boss of the world. I mean, who died and made her Ceiling Cat?

Well, I’m putting my paw down on that business. No more bossing me around. I’m going to stake out my spot right here and after a few days, mom and dad will have simply adjusted. I’ll get lots of extra attention and pets, and maybe I’ll even get my own place setting. “I’ll have the filet mignon please. Extra rare,” I’ll order every evening and that other cat will count herself lucky if she even gets to sniff my plate when I’m done….”

  1. Tessa we think you might need to hide somewhere quickly before Zuzu finds you. The answer’s YES she is and maybe you should share filet mignon with her!
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  2. Oh dear, oh dear… do you have a permit to be on that table? I think the fine might be extra stiff on this one.

  3. Tessa, that’s an excellent goal!

  4. Uh- OH- she sure is behind you 🙂

    Tessa I think you should have what you want when you want it.

  6. Heh, heh! The human gave up on keeping me off the table. If I really annoy her, she picks me up and puts me on the floor. Why shouldn’t you have filet mignon every evening? It’s a perfect little meal for kitties.

    Sorry to say she is behind you 🙁

  7. Tessa she is definitely watching…we wondered what happened in the next picture? MOL

  16. Uh oh, there could be trouble brewing.

  17. That’s the way to put your paw down!!!

  18. It must be the Tuxie in you Tessa, because my tuxie sisfur Emma is so just like you. Stubborn, unyielding, does not conform to norm or follow the rules, and spoiled rotten 🙂 Always gets away with murder, that one. As do you I assume 🙂 Mom is laughing – this looks like a scene from our house with you on top of where you’re not supposed to and me (orinj boy Buster) looking and waiting if there’s penalty to be meted out.

  20. Yep, Tessa, there’s a spy in the house!

  21. You mean there’s a forbidden spot in your house?

  22. Tessa, we have no cat tables too. It never stops us, although sometimes we do it while Mom is asleep. But none of us would squeal on the other!

  23. I have a standing order for grilled beast.

  24. I think ya’ve been busted.

  25. MOL MOL MOL Tessa, patrol cat is on to you 🙂
