I have to admit that I have gotten lax with my cats. I demand from the beginning to keep them off the tables and counters. At first I allow them to crawl up under the Xmas tree and then I get a bit more lax and not yell when they start crawling across the coffee table to avoid getting kicked or to avoid having to jump twice. But laying down on the coffee table and letting some one take their picture be taken only leads to other things.
Oh well, since he now has decided to jump up on the kitchen table and hides behind my computer screen. He jumps up on the counter and relaxes when I am not then he looks offended when I catch him at it.
Life is crazy sometimes,
