Monday evening my wife wanted to watch a Christmas movie and I, being a good husband, sat and watched it with her. Of course, one can’t watch a Christmas movie without hot cocoa so I, being a good husband, got up and made hot cocoa for both of us.
I made it through about half my cup when Frankie got on my lap.
I was then stuck with a half cup of hot cocoa in my left hand but couldn’t drink it because Frankie was lying partially on my arm. Soon after, Chris noticed where Frankie was and he suddenly needed to lie on top of me, next to Frankie.
At this point, I wanted to get rid of my cup so I said to Rose something like, “I’m stuck with this cup I can’t get rid of.” I didn’t want to ask her to get out of her seat but I was hoping she would volunteer. She didn’t. Maybe she was not paying attention. Fifteen seconds later, disaster struck.
Frankie decided Chris was annoying and got up to leave. As he was leaving his back foot landed inside my cup and tipped it over, dumping the contents on my pants and on the sofa. He then proceeded to walk across the sofa with his cocoa foot and then down to the carpet.
I got up and went into the kitchen to get some towels but Rose insisted I wipe the cocoa off Frankie’s foot first, so I got a wet paper towel and followed him into the bedroom. I was able to only get one swipe at his foot before he disappeared under the bed. I then went back to the living room where Rose handed me a wet towel.
I started wiping the cocoa off the sofa but Rose chastised me for doing it wrong. I was not clear on what I was doing wrong. Perhaps it was “no up down go side side.” I don’t know but she took over since she was the only one qualified to do it right and I went to change my pants.
Maybe popcorn will be on the menu for the next Christmas movie.
Yep – cocoa and cats just do NOT mix! Nice thought though…..LOL
A lot of things and cats do not mix. 🙂
that was a purrfect cat-astrophe… popcorn is much better, we agree … apart from caramel popcorn, that stuff ist as sticky as super glue…
No caramel but we do use a lot of butter. That could be a problem.
I need to consult with Frankie to see how I can get a cocoa-foot of my own! That sounds perfect…
Love and licks,
Don’t – chocolate contains Theobromyn – and that stuff is not good for cats or dogs.
Chocolate is a good benefit of being human. 🙂
Well, since we are slaves of our cats, yes, it is a good compensation.
Maybe it would make a good book title.
Yep, popcorn sounds like a plan!
Lol…it funny but not funny, in my defense, you cannot clean cocoa off suede with a paper towel!
In my defence I was using the cloth towel you handed me.
That is such a funny story and typical with cats! My cats fight over who gets to sit in my lap and usually it doesn’t end well!
I know the feeling.
With your crew, I definitely think popcorn is the better idea!
Yes. That will have to be a new holiday tradition.
We agree with above : chose popcorn next time ! Purrs
Good thing we like popcorn. 🙂
Or sippy cups…
Another good idea.
Popcorn sounds like good idea.
Maybe we can get hot cocoa flavored popcorn.
Well I hope you have better luck next time. . .
Thank you. I don’t think it could go worse. 🙂
Sounds like a mess.
A hilarious tale, Charles, but I wasn’t the one covered in hot chocolate!
It’s funny after the fact. 🙂
Next time, you’ll need to have treats for them as well. 😉
That’s a good idea.
I generally don’t complain if someone says I’m not cleaning correctly and they need to do it for me. 🙂
I was very dissapointed I couldn’t clean. 😁
