Devilcat tip#1 - bench walker

This might sound obvious, but if you want to get up on the kitchen bench then get on the bench! If they bat you off, then get up again. And again. And again.

Believe me, their patience will fade faster. They have things they'd rather be doing, such as watching TV, or eating. If you think they're going to stand there all day and bat you off the bench, you're nuts. (You could throw in some snarling and biting and scratching as well.)

Eventually, they'll give up and you'll be free to stalk the benches anytime you like. It's a great place to find food. (But that's another tip . . .)

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. You really are one naughty cat! Maybe you ought to come over here so I cab teach you some manners!

PS And don't call me matronly! Though this white apron thing (bald chest, you might call it, but really I'm just having a bad hair month) is a bit much.

OMG Beth, you really are pathetic. I started these tips with you in mind, you know. Just read, learn, and shutup about whatever it is you're blathering on about.

BTW, you've just given me another idea for a tip!

Oh, and apeaking of your silly white apron -- that's just what I'd expect a matron cat like you to wear anyway!

Ha ha, devilcat, you might say you'd expect me to wear an apron, but have you, er, looked in the mirror. My humans say I look just like you now!
