Mysterious Tales

There was a funny thing that happened earlier in the week that I didn’t mention.  I think I’ve written that a while back I got one of those automatic carpet sweeping robots for upstairs.  The cats are wary of it but not as much as they are of the vacuum.

It has a mode where you can have it run on a timer, but I have not set it to do that as my upstairs is so complicated the little thing often gets stuck off in a corner if nobody is around, so I would have to chase it down regardless.

One morning I was awake but not up, and the robot started up on its own.  Its home base is near one of the fountains, and one of the cats – Calla or Gus – must have stepped on top and hit the activation button.

Those two were in the room for sure and I saw them giving the stink eye to the robot as it puttered around the room.

A day or so later someone kicked at the other fountain upstairs and made it spill some water.  I’m not sure who did that one.

It is a bit strange how after months or even years (for the fountains) they are getting stepped on this week.

Julie might have been the culprit for the fountain…hard to say.

  2. Hmm, I’m not sure, but it could be that somecat is trying to short circuit that robot by splashing it with water from the fountain! They are trying to eliminate the annoyance! MOL
