A cat with no dignity

would be a really good way to describe Oribel. She really, really doesn't care what she looks like, or if her plan of getting somewhere has proper follow through. Jumping up onto something and she misses the mark? Most cats would try to pull off the "Oh, I really did mean to slip off the edge. Really, that was on purpose." But Oribel is all about the "So what if everyone saw me miss and fall on my butt. I will just do it again and I don't care if I miss the second time either. Who cares if someone sees me look lie a silly dope? I sure as heck don't give a flip."
We keep store put her toys into a basket, which she digs through to find whatever she is in the mood to play with. I have been known to gather up all her coasters into her basket, just to find them all scattered about the house again within just a few hours. (Hmmmm, kind of reminds me of my kids' toy basket from years ago...)

Sometimes her "digging through" involves "climbing into" the toy basket to find what she wants. Somehow, fitting into the basket worked a lot better six months ago than it does currently.
 
Now there seems to be a lot of "Giving the basket what for and showing it who is the Boss" involved with the procuring of the proper toy. The basket handle was a bit wet from the biting and a bit more misshapen from the kicking by the time she was done this time around.

Oh, that is just too funny!!! She is so silly!
Jasmine's basket is whicker so all she does is chew on it every once in a while, she doesn't get the whole body into it like Oribel. He he! :)

Silly cat. :-) Fluffy just now discovered that she gets stuck trying to crawl under the dressers the way she could when she was a kitten. She managed to wriggle her way out this time, but I'm betting she won't try it a second time. lol

I hesitate to say this, but in the first picture she looks rather like she is taking a dump. I assume (and sincerely hope) that such is not the case.

Okay, I am just a bad person.

She is finding a way to make herself small enough to fit under the handle of her toy basket, thank you very much. She just doesn't want to acknowledge the fact that she is too big. Even with the toys tossed out onto the floor.

Oh, that was wonderful! I SO needed a good laugh today--thank you, Oribel. You're the best!
