Chumley's Toes

One of the only things that calms this kitty is having his toe nails clipped. He becomes so docile and just lays there like a loaf of bread watching me snip each razor sharp claw. From what other cat owner's have told me clipping a cat's nails is one of the most difficult things to do. My sister needs to wear pot holders on both hands to hold down her cats while her husband tries to clip their nails. I know of many a cat owner who is left scratched and bloody after a nail trim. I guess we are lucky in that regard. We are just left scratched and bloody if we try to pet, play, look at, or walk by our cat. Wow. We are really blessed. (To be fair, it's not like this all the time. Chum does have some moments of non-demon like behavior. Usually when there are two full moons in one month (a.k.a. a "blue moon" - which happens on average every few years) he's pretty good on the day the moon makes it's second appearance. And, according to my moon calendar there will be 2 full moons in 2018! Something to look forward to because as everyone tells me, this cat is going to outlive us all!

This is why I am in love with your cat. He is unique. Special. Deranged. Warm. Hyper. Loving. Suspicious. Affectionate. Misunderstood. Funny. Angry. He's a lot of things, but he is NEVER boring. I wouldn't want a boring cat.

Good Chum. Your auntie thinks you're just perfect. You can piss on her walls anytime. She also has lots of old shower curtains for if you ever want to visit.

Only Chum would act exactly the OPPOSITE of a normal cat!! Hmmm, a bit like his mommy perhaps? ;-)

Take out affectionate and you just said all the words Tom uses to describe me. I wonder if I have molded my cat's psychotic-ness in any way? If that's the case wouldn't Wrigley have issues? He seems pretty normal, though he's not even 2 yet. Shit, should I be worried about him now too???

OK, when I left the first comment, I was at school, so I couldn't watch the video (youtube is blocked) Now that I've watched it, I swear you switched Satin with another cat!
