Aby-a-Day – October 20: What makes you so special?

Like most households, cats are not allowed on the counters in our apartment.


While most of the cats know this rule and abide by it, for some reason Jacoby seems to think that the rule doesn’t apply to him.


I am not sure why he thinks this.


We tell him, “No, Jake!” and “Get down, Jake!” but he doesn’t listen.


Actually, I take that back. Jake does listen. We tell him, “Get off the counter, Jake!” and he does get off the counter.




Because sitting on the rice cooker is not, technically, sitting on the counter. It’s sitting on the rice cooker.


And Jake can’t see the meat from the floor, so he’s perfectly willing to push that technicality for a better view.

    1. I don’t mind him being on the counter per se…it’s when I’m working on dinner (mine or his) and he tries to start eating before I’ve even finished that I get a little annoyed. We also don’t have a lot of counter space, and if the stove top is on it could be dangerous. It’s just when I tell him to “get off the counter,” he gets on something: the rice cooker, the microwave, or the toaster oven. He’s really smart…
