the booby-traps.

We got a new dining room table... well, a very OLD table actually. A family heirloom, in great condition. A beautiful piece that Miss Lulu (cat) thinks is her new personal scratching post. wtf. so I had to booby trap it.

(please disregard my horrid "dining room". it's not remodeled yet. currently is more of a "catch all" room than a real dining area)

we also got a new car seat for the little one (a hand-me-down, so it's not in a box)... and since he's still a bit small for it, it's sitting in the dining room as well... and apparently Miss Nala (our other cat) thinks this is her own personal lazy-boy chair. so, I had to booby trap that too.

notice the lovely cat hair.... :rolleyes:

on the upside, my dining room is orangey-fresh now, and they haven't gone near the table or car seat. :D

I hope it works. I'd like to booby trap a few things around here myself. Of course, if it doesn't work, I'd like to see the pictures of them chomping down on those oranges.:laughing:

Does that actually work??

I could see Alley :evil: swatting the slice away. Or eating it. If she eats tomatoes, bananas through the skin, and steals bread slices, whats a little orange? :yell:

If that works though, right on! :thumbs up

Might work on my cats, but the dogs would eat the oranges!
