I mentioned before that the feral cat we adopted, Oscar, was making it more difficult to go to work in the morning by trying to convince me to play with him instead of leave. He isn’t doing that quite as much now, but he’s found other ways to make getting to work in the mornings more difficult. This one? Shoelaces.
Every morning, I get dressed after I take my shower. Then I go check a few things on the computer and put on my dress shoes. Oscar is waiting.
I mean it, he literally comes in and waits for me to put on my dress shoes. He stares, he lurks. Then, as I start to tie my dress shoes, he pounces on the laces as they move. Apparently, dress shoe laces are a much more interesting toy than anything else he has to play with.
This isn’t really a surprise. After all, he won’t be a year old until perhaps April or May. However, it does make getting ready to go to work in the morning more difficult. And, at this point, it’s happening every morning.
