I am SOOO bored.
That ever happen to you, my friends? Do any of you ever get bored?
And if you do, what do you do about it?
SERIOUSLY, what do you do? I'm all ears. I really, REALLY need to figure out how not to be so bored.
I tried complainin' to the peep but that didn't go over too well. Instead of helpin' me, she gave me a bunch of things to do, and she said if I did 'em all, I would no longer be bored.
Yeah, right. Turns out, all those things she said I should do? They were all things she didn't want to do herself. It was nothin' but a scam, for sure.
Plus, all those things that were supposed to make me less bored? Well they were borin', too! MOUSES!
So I decided to take matters into my own paws and find somethin' to do myself.
So I watched my cat grass grow for a bit.
Turns out, watchin' cat grass grow isn't all that interestin'. I mean, I sat there for like a WHOLE FIVE MINUTES and didn't see it do a thing. MOUSES!
Then I offered to help the peep with her knittin'.
Turns out, my idea of helpin' with knittin' and her idea of helpin' with knittin', are TWO TOTALLY DIFFERENT THINGS. And for the record, Peep #1's idea of my helpin' with knittin' is as borin' as borin' can be. MOUSES!
Peep #1 suggested I clean up the family room by puttin' away my toys.
For the love of all things mouses. What kinda stupid idea is that? I finally got my toys all scattered around the room just the way I like it, so why the mouses would I want to turn around and put 'em all away? That made no sense at all.
Plus, it turns out that I'm a lot better at makin' messes than I am at cleaning 'em up, anyway. MOUSES!
Oohhh... But I made a game! Well, it's a puzzle, to be exact. My pal Basil, from over at the Bionic Basil blog, told me 'bout this really neat puzzle-makin' site, so I trotted on over there, and checked it out for myself. And while there, I made a puzzle! If you click on Nissy's picture over on the right-paw side of my blog, you can do the puzzle, too.
And speakin' of puzzles, you ever help your peeps do puzzles at home? Now THAT is not borin' at all. Personally, I like to hide the puzzle pieces which, when you think about it, is like turnin' a puzzle into two games in one. One is the puzzle itself, and the other is like a hide and seek searchin' kinda thing.
The best part of helpin' peeps with puzzles is when they have it almost all done, but can't find those last couple pieces. You know, the ones you hid? Then the peeps ask, "Seville, do YOU know where those puzzle pieces are?" And you answer, "Nope, not a clue. Missin' puzzle pieces is a puzzle, for sure."
Yeah, that last bit really is THE BEST. MOUSES!
Although truth be told, it turns out that peeps don't find the searchin' for the puzzle pieces to be all that fun, I have found.
At least they don't find it as fun as I find watching 'em look. MOUSES!
And for the record, while searchin' for puzzle pieces, peeps will sometimes use words unsuitable for the innocent ears of kittens like me. Of course, that doesn't stop me one bit. I ignore what I hear which, in all honesty, isn't a lot, for it's hard to hear peeps cursin' while you're rollin' around on the floor laughin' your tail off, you know? MOUSES!
But fun with puzzles aside...
The fact remains...
I am STILL bored.
I suppose I could go smacky-paw a fur-sib.
Or hork up a hairball and watch the peeps jump up and run.
Or knock some stuff of the counter and see how much of said stuff is breakable. That's always a fun game to play.
Or I could always make patterns with kitty litter on the bathroom floor. That might add a little excitement to my day.
Maybe I'll just sit here. Just sit here and sigh. Sigh, plaintively, 'til the peep finds me somethin'
Somethin' FUN, that is. I'm not - I repeat, NOT - doin' any more of her chores.
Yeah, I think that if I sit here and sigh loudly enough, FOR LONG ENOUGH, she'll figure somethin' out, for sure.
Since you are supposed to sleep 22 hours how do you manage to be bored in the remaining 2 hours? Try looking out the window for birds, or nap before you get too tired from being bored.ReplyDelete
Good time management. MOUSES!Delete
Coolio puzzle! Seville, just nap on it, and you'll come up with something fun to do in your sleep!ReplyDelete
Hmmm... Yes, I might dream up some mischief... I mean, USEFUL ACTIVITIES in my sleep. purrsDelete
I like puzzles, especially ones with lots of pieces to knock around!ReplyDelete
They're the best, aren't they? MOUSES!Delete
Have a wonderful Wednesday!ReplyDelete
Noodle and crew
You too, my pal. You too! purrsDelete
Hey, at least your human doesn't have Binga to deal with. You REALLY don't want to see her bored!ReplyDelete
Next time Binga gets bored, tell her to teleport on over to my house. Maybe, together, we could find somethin' to do. purrsDelete
When I'm bored, I just take a nap. ; )ReplyDelete
That IS a very wise thing to do. purrsDelete
Oh Seville being bored is just pawful. I haz a box n we can paint it blue. Mom's got paint on the table, den pretend it is The TARDIS. 🕋 NOW, we'll never get bored again. Time Travel.⏲ 🚀 Wacha think? Advencha after advencha to worlds unknown.🌏🌎🌍ReplyDelete
Count me in! MOUSES!Delete
I am not very good at jigsaws, and even manage to lose pieces when they are on the screen! I enjoyed it though, but have to admit it took me nearly twice as long as you.ReplyDelete
Sometimes that happens to me, too! Well, at least it seems to happen, but the pieces eventually reappear. purrsDelete
We're bored too, Seville. The weather has been awful, with constant rain for months, and so we can't really enjoy our cat run. Napping is great but there are limits, right?ReplyDelete
Months of rain? MONTHS? MOUSES!Delete
I don't know for sure, Seville, but it seems that you had a busy day...a boring day, but busy anyway...MOL :D I only have one remedy when you feel bored, curl yourself up and sleep for a while...I do that all the time. I'm sleeping for almost five days now...MOL :D Pawkisses for an active day :) <3ReplyDelete
You slept for a straight five days? Wow. You should see if nappin' is an Olympic sport 'cause if it is, you'd win gold, for sure. purrsDelete
Oooh I say, I love the jigsaw! I need one with larger pieces though for the housekeeper , maybe with straight edges too MOL I managed 16:23ReplyDelete
No getting bored in this palace as theres always naps to be had and nice to chase, then more naps MOL
I bet you NEED a nap after chasin' mice. That's how I feel after chasin' my fur-sibs. MOUSES!Delete
Great idea the jigsaw. Play with your nip toys then have a purrfect sleep then eat,play,sleep. Oh also keep peeps on her paws.x😻💕ReplyDelete
Eat. Play. Sleep. I heard that was the ORIGINAL title for that book they turned into a movie, you know. purrsDelete
Wait a ... your Peep expects you to clean up your own toys?!?! What kind of nonsense is that?!?! Just for that, you should refuse to help her at all! Hmph. Show HER!ReplyDelete
I know. I KNOW! Can you believe it? MOUSES!Delete
Thank you for the puzzle. I love online jigsaw puzzles even though they take me a long time to finish. Sorry you are bored- a nap is a good idea.ReplyDelete
You liked it? Yay! I've actually done up another one, too. I used one of the pictures from my recent adventure into the woods. purrsDelete
You do have it rough. Your peep just doesn't understand how to entertain a bored cat. sigh!ReplyDelete
Seriously. She needs to go back to school and learn, I think. MOUSES!Delete
Sorry things are so boring there, Sivvers. We think your idea of hiding a puzzle piece from a jigsaw puzzle the peeps are working on is BRILLIANT! Now THAT is a fun game.ReplyDelete
It IS, isn't it. I can watch 'em search for it all day long. purrsDelete
Hey Mr Seville, if you get really bored, you can dial up my tunnel and come and watch Burd TV! I am NEVER bored! And your puzzle was fan! I really enjoyed it! Queen Penelope LOVED Nerissa to bits!ReplyDelete
Nissy loved Queen Penelope, too. He always said great things 'bout her. PURRS.Delete
