I’m only doing this under duress. In other words my human “strongly suggested” that I feature Binga on Tortie Tuesday “one of these years.” Even though she does something (usually more than one something) to get on my nerves every day, whether it’s stealing my dinner, commandeering my favorite cat toy or trying to slap me around. And that’s just an ordinary day. It can get worse, like the time my human took her in for a vet check up — and dragged me along for the ride (admittedly that was even more my human’s fault than Binga’s).
What really gets me is that the humans think she is something super cool and laugh off her bad behavior. Even worse, when other humans come to visit or do work on the house, she’s out front and center, asking for attention and getting in the way. Getting in the way is her specialty. In fact, she is The Cat Most Likely To Accidentally Be Packed For A Road Trip.
I will confess that she has her purposes. For example, it’s bad to leave my human in the office unsupervised. If no one is looking, she may goof off and do stuff like check her bank balance or write about things that don’t involve cats. It’s a lot of work for me to do on my own. So occasionally I’ll take a break and Binga will take over for a while. She’s very good at sitting on documents that might distract my human from important things, like updating my blog or ordering cat treats online.
I think Binga believes she not only has tortitude, she created it! Heh.
