The Arms Race Has Quickened

Our Maximum Leader has just now discovered that if she pushes the door to our study open all the way, its doorknob will hit the wall with a resounding "THUD." More noise means more attention and more attention means more food.

She used to be content with pawing at things or plucking the carpet, both capable of waking me up, but leaving everyone else asleep. Today's dramatic advance in early-morning feline weapons technology does not bode well for the rest of the family.

You know the springs on the base boards that keep doors from slamming open and making a hole in the wall when the door knob hits the dry wall? Yeah, my cat likes to flip those with his paw. They can make an awful racket with minimal effort. I end up taking them off and putting them away.
