A Potty Conversation

As I was tidying up my plant pots while the sun shone and the skies were blue this conversation ensued:

My next door neighbour but one: Is there something special about that drainage cover?

Me: Eh?

My next door neighbour but one: It’s just that Charlie likes staying on it.

Me: Er…. I think it’s because it’s warm.

My next door neighbour but one: Is it really?

Me (going over to feel the drainage cover): Er.. actually it’s cold and still wet from Friday’s rain.

My next door neighbour but one: So why does Charlie like staying on it?

Me: Er.. who knows?

My next door neighbour but one: Strange.

Me: Yep.

Charlie says: Be so kind as to remove the twig from my furs. Thank you.



Have a marshmallow Monday everyone!

You're such a precious marshmallow, Charilie!

Ann Best said...

I think "who knows" just about sums it up for anything!!

Jen and I hope you and Charlie have a "sunny" marshmallow Monday!

Kea said...

Charlie, you silly, gorgeous boy. Our mom would have thought the cover would be warm, too, from the sun. Maybe it just feels good, the texture of it!

hugs & kisses to sweet charlie

Ann said...

Ours is not to wonder why.....

Hope your Monday is sunny!

I go to see the surgeon tomorrow for his opinion on whether I should have surgery -- so I'm wishing for a "No scalpel" Monday!

Charley looks comfortable. Actually he looks like a marshmellow cloud.

Have a great week, Roland

Who knows what lurks in the (tiny) minds of Cat...

HubbleSpacePaws said...

Have a wonderful week, folks! I have never figured out some of the favorite places, either. :-)

Perhaps the grass gives Charlie an itch while the drainage cover doesn't. :)

The way of the Charlie is mysterious and cute.

Ellie said...

Charlie is a funny one! I wonder why it loves it so much?

Reenie said...

LOL @ the 'potty' conversation :D

Susan Fields said...

You're a very complex cat, Charlie. :)

Hi Old Kitty - I'm back from my break and so happy to be catching up on my fave blogs! I've missed you and Charlie. :)

There's no understanding cats, that's for sure!

Charlie may be cold and wet but he looks gorgeous as always.

Brian said...

Just so the neighbor doesn't start laying on Charlie's drainage cover, all will be okay!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

He really wanted to know the answer, didn't he? But how do you explain a cat's behavior?

Al said...

It is simply a suitable stage for him to display his brilliance!

Jayne said...

I have consulted with my two fur-balls, and they tell me that sometimes sitting on odd things is just part of the fun of being a cat. While we were there, I tried to get them to tell me why they insist on sitting on every piece of paper and carrier bag in the house, but they just looked at each-other, shrugged as if to say 'humans' and walked off.

The Monkeys said...

Keep it a mystery, Charlie! The less those humans know about why we do what we do, the better!

Hannah and Lucy said...

We thought it would be warm too - still Charlie has lots of floof to keep him warm not to mention his twig!!

Clarissa Draper said...

I just love your daily cat photo.

Have a great week, both you and Charlie!

Only Charlie know why the cover is great.

Sammy and Andy said...

hehehe, we kitties have our secrets, don't we, handsome Charlie?????? We know why you like that drainage cover, but we cross our paws that we won't tell!!!!!!!!!!!

xxxxxxxx

Hart Johnson said...

It's part of Charlie's nefarious plan to mess with you... Reminds me of the old Far Side strips where pets do random things just to see how their people respond.

Marg said...

Oh my that conversation was hysterical. Charlie, it just felt good to you, so who cares why. Nosy neighbors anyway. And Charlie you know perfectly well that cats rule. So you sit or lie anywhere that feel like doing. Take care and have a fun day.

Talli Roland said...

Aw, what a beautiful photo of Charlie! Maybe Charlie likes the texture of the drainage cover... who knows?

Happy Monday to you both!

Jackee said...

LOL! Who are we to question the activities of a feline?? :o) They do as they please and in routine order.

Have a wonderful evening!

Alexandra Crocodile said...

Oh, when will you humans learn not to ask why cats act in mysterious ways? Our level of intelligence can't understand why cats do what they do. But rest assured - they do it for a reason:)

Hi Charlie
Only you know and I bet you're not telling!

The drainage cover looks like it's in a warm & sunny area. But who knows why that's his spot du jour.

I've known of cats who find old paper bags fun places to nap!

Nicki Elson said...

I keep seeing your name in comments at various blogs, so I just had to come see what this Old Kitty was all about. Imagine my horror at finding out that "Old" Kitty is YOUNGER THAN ME! *Hmph*

But I see we get pictures of cats here, so all is good. In the summer my bunny likes to lay on the metal floor grids where the air conditioning blows out. O_o
