You think I’m exaggerating when I say I have to battle my cat to get my cup of coffee.
Well, don’t take my word for it. Here’s a full video of a typical morning, attempting to prepare my daily caffeine fix.
And this is after I have fed the cats!
I don’t think I could have held the camera steady to try recording without having fed the fiends first. One demanding cat is bad enough. I would have two on the counter and a dog circling my feet, assuming I hadn’t fed any animals yet.
Normally, I have a hand free and I hold his head back, but even then, I have lost many a battle, a coffee cup, my sanity, and spilled much precious coffee.
Look what happens when I set it down again for a moment and then try to pick the cup up for another sip. That’s Rascal at his best.
I try not to cry over spilled milk (and joe), but it gets old. Really old.
