Just put down a huge rug I bought months ago.

One of the cats is in seventh heaven, she's flat on her belly, pulling herself all over it with her claws :-|

...I can see the rug lasting 3 months if I'm lucky!

The cat may think you bought it for them being a good mummy,like.... :-D :-D

When my cat does that, looking all inviting and ecstatic, it usually means that you will get bitten if you dare to stroke her!
She's a little s*d, even if she is 15 years old!

Betty isn't like that - she's (usually) a gentle soul, but being an awful lot smaller than her brothers, spits at them.

I have bare floorboards or laminate in every room (apart from the stairs) so a huge rug is a novlety

Has it been stored anywhere near catnip - sounds like she's really enjoying this Christmas :-D

We gave brother-in-law & his wife a gorgeous rug with a fringe for a wedding present. It wasn't cheap!

When we saw it six months later, it was in tatters and had no fringe.

Bl**dy cat!!!! :-(

Mine thought the new sofa was a litter tray. He wasn't misbehaving because he did it in front of me.
