Hmmm, lemme think…..I don’t think there’s a question here! Maxthe QuiltCat says: August 7, 2011 at 8:22 AM You are absolutely right. The carpeting is the best…. just be careful that you don’t get caught. pawhugs, Max Fage says: August 7, 2011 at 8:39 AM Things you arent suppose to scratch on are the BESTEST! Deb Barnes - Zee and Zoey says: August 7, 2011 at 8:46 AM We agree that your thoughts and actions are purr-fectly logical! We have a wonderful rug at our home that serves the same purpose – we think it is wonderful our humans care enough to buy us things like rugs… Have a great Sunday! Meows from Zee, Zoey, Mia, Peanut, Rolz, Harley, and Jazz Brian says: August 7, 2011 at 8:47 AM Yep, that carpet looks lots better! meowmeowmans says: August 7, 2011 at 8:49 AM Ernie, you’re a cat after our own hearts! We love your plan! 🙂 Have a great Sunday, Island Cats. The Florida Furkids and Angel Sniffie says: August 7, 2011 at 8:57 AM That cardboard thingy makes a great headrest!! Have a great Sunday!! The Florida Furkids and Angel Sniffie The Chair Speaks says: August 7, 2011 at 9:10 AM Right! You can scratch on all fours at one go on the carpet comfortably! Catherine says: August 7, 2011 at 9:25 AM LOL ~ oh you kitties ~ you are lucky you are so cute ~ how could anyone give you heck?? 😉 I guess the carpet just feels better. xo Catherine Fui, Suey and Lishy says: August 7, 2011 at 9:25 AM You’re making us miss our old staircase! Thank you for purring for Fui. We’re lucky to have such good friends 🙂 Marg says: August 7, 2011 at 9:34 AM Oh yes, the carpet is much better scratching. Love your head rest. At least that scratcher is being used for something. Take care. Dma says: August 7, 2011 at 9:47 AM Better yet, why not use the sofa to scratch? Tillie & Georgia says: August 7, 2011 at 9:53 AM Heh,heh,heh!!!!!!!!!!!! Forbidden things are SO much more fun 😉 heehee Purrs Tillie and Georgia KnottedFingers says: August 7, 2011 at 9:55 AM LOL that carpet is better in my kitties eyes too xx Mommy M and The Garrison Catcalls says: August 7, 2011 at 10:21 AM Ha! The only reason that ‘thing’ is there, is to direct you to the better scratching post! madi and mom says: August 7, 2011 at 10:25 AM …..and you can do it reclining…..MOL Hugs Madi Admiral Hestorb says: August 7, 2011 at 10:27 AM Mommy fanks goodness I like my rope scratchy post and cardboard box cause she has carpeting thru the house… Faz the Cat says: August 7, 2011 at 11:29 AM I know exactly what you mean. FAZ Simba says: August 7, 2011 at 12:07 PM It looks like an especially good scratching place because you can LIE DOWN and SCRATCH at the same time! And even have a headrest! Humans – some of that Sticky Paws stuff maybe? CATachresis says: August 7, 2011 at 12:43 PM Absolutely, Ernie!!! >^,.^< Maggie says: August 7, 2011 at 1:03 PM If you tell Ernie to scratch on the stairs, then he’ll probably go for the cardboard… Cheysuli says: August 7, 2011 at 1:49 PM You know, when they got rid of the carpet and put in hardwood that’s the place I miss the most. It was so cool to lie there and crawl across the step as I sharpened my claws. Enjoy! Daisy the Curly Cat says: August 7, 2011 at 2:08 PM Oh Ernie, that’s Harley’s favorite scratching-spot, too! Stacy Hurt says: August 7, 2011 at 2:11 PM makes a nice pillow though MOL! Tamago says: August 7, 2011 at 2:19 PM Heh heh. You mom may be screaming!! But that carpet thing looks perfect to scratch and shred!! Forty Paws says: August 7, 2011 at 2:34 PM We feel the same way. Luf, Us Sparkle says: August 7, 2011 at 3:22 PM That carpeted step looks WAY more fun to scratch on, Ernie! Mr Puddy says: August 7, 2011 at 4:01 PM MOL…Mom said she feel your mom’s pain, I feel your fun time, Ernie..heh..heh..heh xoxo Grrreta says: August 7, 2011 at 4:15 PM We kitties know that everything in the house is put there for our enjoyment, so it is obvious that the carpeted steps are intended to be used for scratching. We think it is a little rude that humans walk on your scratching steps, but you are very sweet to not make a big deal about that. Devoted to Willow says: August 7, 2011 at 4:49 PM Of course the carpeting is hard to resist as it has the most lovely textures to sink into. Ernie the stairs are also purrfect since your extra thumbs can better control the scratching. Athena says: August 7, 2011 at 7:06 PM MOL! You are just like Kit! Lucy the Cat says: August 7, 2011 at 7:08 PM Ernie! Mama is saying something about irony but I totally agree. That yummy, nubby carpet with all those textures is just begging for claws to be in it. Laila and Minchie says: August 7, 2011 at 8:34 PM That carpet sure looks easier on those toesies! Jacqueline says: August 7, 2011 at 10:10 PM Enjoy the carpet scratching, handsome Ernie!!…Stay cool and have a happy week ahead, sweet friends…kisses…Calle, Halle, Sukki Laura and Taffy says: August 7, 2011 at 11:35 PM Absolutely!!! Angel Jet used to grab the stair carpet just that way (as a prelude to dashing wildly up . . . and down). He was a house panther just like you, Ernie. Katz (And Other) Tales says: August 7, 2011 at 11:46 PM Quite right! And there’s the bed, the curtains and the kitchen table legs too 🙂 MOL, Wishing you Happy World Cat Day. Cheyenne-Millie says: August 8, 2011 at 12:21 AM Ha! Ha! Carpeting just feels soooo good when you gets your claws into it!! Spitty-the-Kitty says: August 8, 2011 at 1:06 AM Now, see, isn’t that JUST what’s wrong with the Humans? They think they can divert us from the Real Fun Things with some cheap imitation. As if!! Claws + Carpet = A match made in heaven! CatSynth says: August 9, 2011 at 12:27 AM Ernie looks just like Luna in that picture! Even down to details like the tail, ears and collar 🙂 Whisppy says: August 9, 2011 at 7:39 AM We can’t agree more!! Love, Cosmo and Ling Fuzzy and Zoe says: August 9, 2011 at 9:48 PM Haha, Ernie! I used to scratch the stairs until I got the cardboard thingie like yours – I prefer it much better than stairs! Your friend, Fuzzy Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
