What a Rascal!

This sweet lil' man got into some trouble earlier this week.

Oh Snap has been to the ER-Vet approximately 2 times in the last year.

Oh Snap is the most mellow kitty in the world, who cannot be bothered by little mice and playing actively. He prefers to snooze and cuddle.

However, when he does try to play, the boy always gets himself in to trouble.

On Thursday, he decided to attack a spider in between the crack of the door. A door crack that was sprayed with WD-40 several weeks ago.

Of course I freaked out and called boyfriend. I said something along the lines of "guess what your son did!?!?!?" (He's always boyfriend's son when he gets himself into trouble).

The door crack won, and he ended up looking like this...

One emergency vet visit later, Snap needs a week long course of eye drops. Although you can't tell in this picture, he tore up his eyelid pretty good while attacking the door jam.

Upon returning home, he returned to being my son, and was cuddled and coddled for the rest of the evening.


Not to be outdone, while grilling burgers outside last night, Sage escape through the screen door and made it halfway over the side of the balcony.

I almost freaked.

I give her a good, safe, loving home. There is no need to try to escape.

Oh no! So glad he is okay and Sage didn't make it off the balcony! Every time my cats try to escape out the door (which would be every time we go out the door), I can't believe it. Do they seriously think they are going to ever find somewhere better to live? I think it is because they are so spoiled. If they were outside for 1 night, they would never try to leave again!

Awwww poor little guy. Naughty little kitties getting into mischief. I'm glad they are okay.

Oh Snap! You silly boy.. don't you know not to get in a fight with a door?

I agree with A.D.-- I think if the dogs (who attempt an escape EVERY time the door opens) got out and had to fend for themselves for a night, they'd find this is a pretty sweet gig they have going on.

My Oliver kitty was outside when I got home yesterday. He is an inside only kitty and must have snuck out when the kids/nanny were going out to play! It was sprinkling, so he was at the door begging to come in.. silly boy.
