In which the cat watches the printer and doesn't go nuts!

I think I showed tremendous restraint in the face of impending chaos!
You can watch on YouTube here

The more observant amongst you will have noticed my singular lack of interwebs presence in the last week or so. This will be entirely because of failed communication between me and The Staff. She has been doing her own thing busy and I have been napping out on border patrol and our diaries have been conspiring against us mislaid.  We have scheduled a summit conference in the next few days, during which, I hope, an agreement will be reached regarding the political and economic determinants of treat deficits and non-pollex keyboard access. It could be a momentous event in the history of blogging. Watch this space and keep checking the press!

In other words, we are sorry!



conference - a meeting during which much is inferred and many are conned

  1. Good boy Austin. That did show some restraint. Well done. Mahoney loves to watch the printer spit things out. It is just fascinating. Have a super day.

  6. Very impressive restraint, Austin! The lady loves the conference definition as she's on conference calls all the time at work and says that definition can be very fitting a lot of the time. I hope the right agreement is reached at yours (in other words, I hope you get your way).

    Purrs,
    Annie

  12. How did you do it? How did you keep from grabbin' those papers between your teeth and just tossing 'em about the room? I don't think I could have shown such restraint. Very impressive.

    Purrs,

  14. When we first met the printer, we would jerk along as the paper came out. It made Mommy LOL. Pity she didn't videotape it then because now we won't even look at the printer. MOL.

  18. You are very restrained Austin. Mum keeps me away from our printer when she uses it because I try to get my paw inside to help the paper come out quicker.

  22. Yo, Buddy! That's about how I react to the printer too. I don't see what makes some kitties INSANE about it!

    I have had trouble with my staff too, mostly in helping me visit. As in, she doesn't. Pfft. I need thimbs. She also has some delusion that her needs take precedence over mine. What *is* it with the Humans anyway?

    We need to go get a beer. Or maybe a coupla boilermakers. It's cold.

  34. One of your best definitions ever, Austin. Did someone give you a tranquilizer? We cannot believe your restraint when it came to that printer and paper. Oh, we know, you were just being a good Cat Scout. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  35. We thought you were off catting around, Austin!

  36. Well Austin, I think the video just goes to show what a brave mancat you are. Who could be frightened by such a silly contraption?

    ReplyDelete
  37. Are you going to livestream the conference? It should be interesting to watch!

    ReplyDelete
  38. You definitely showed some restraint! I hope you come to an agreement with the staff :-)

    ReplyDelete
  39. You not into whapping paper? Neither am I. I don’t whap ornaments either. Hope you can reach an accord with the Staff.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Austin I see you contemplating it in the middle, but you showed great restraint. Good luck on negotiations with the staff.

    ReplyDelete
  41. You've been very good, Austin. I would have stolen the paper and ran away with it.

    ReplyDelete
  42. OMC, that was such a cute video! You sure do exercise incredible restraint there buddy...good luck with the summit...I think you should demand some extra Num-Nums before you get started!

    ReplyDelete
  43. How furry good you are, Austin! We don't think We could have resisted the urge to pounce on that paper.

    ReplyDelete
  44. You are a model of restraint, Austin. Hope you can get your staff back on the ball. :D

    ReplyDelete
  45. Allie: well, Mother says Faraday holds CONferences all the time. *cough*


    Maxwell: Pawesome restraint you showed int hat video, dood!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Wow! What a will power you have Austin!

    Thank you for all the purrs!!! It's been working!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Don't worry, Austin, our human has been seriously slacking off, too. Hers says her excuse is cause hers is helping us send our Christmas cards, but we thinks hers just needs to nap less and help us MORE. MOL.

    Just keep bugging your human. She'll get the point. ;)
