Psycho Kitty

Do any of you have a psycho pet?  I do, I do!

This is Leo. He likes to skulk about and be sneaky.  He loves to lurk behind doors and stalk me.   Leo is a FREAK!!!!

Gif Created on Make A Gif

Hmm. I am just realizing that Leo and I share some similar traits. I have been known to hide from people -- relatives, landlords, clients, co-workers, and bosses. At one job when I heard  a much-despised curator was looking for me, I flattened myself against a wall in my office when he was marching down the hallway calling out my name (Note: It worked!  He didn't see me!  But it would have been EXTREMELY embarrassing if he found me standing there like that and asked me to explain myself!).  I always like finding sneaky ways to get into and out of places, especially WORK.  And I like to peek out from the curtains and see what is happening in the neighborhood. LOL.

LOL! That would have been so embarrassing if you had been found out! I love finding places to hide for awhile when no one knows where I am.
My psycho cat likes to hide once in awhile, and then when I call her and she doesn't come out, I worry that she's jumped off the balcony and then my calling gets louder and more frantic. Then when I finally find her in a linen closet or something, she just looks at me with this smug little face like "I've been here the whole time listening to you call me and boy, you sounded like such an idiot. Hahahaha!" - G

love it! And Leo is a cutie! I think all kittied have sneaky little personalities. My Gus spilled an entire glass of water on me while I was sleeping two nights ago. That little bastard.

Tracie said...

The only people I hide from are my kids! But they know all my secret spots so it's pretty much a bust.

oh friend i am the same way at times. i will see someone i know on the streets or on BART (public transpo) and instinctively hide without even knowing it. HA! i think the older i get the more antisocial i become.

and my dog omar is a little psycho himself. he will follow me everywhere and stare at me with his googly eyes. he's also autistic.

bananas. said...

btw i love the whole psycho effect you did on those pictures. i hear the music from psycho in my head blaring right about now.

Char said...

LOL i had to laugh about the curator.

i had a cat once that loved me but no one else. my sister lived with me at the time and would swear the cat would hide at the top of the stairs at night and would leap on her in the dark. LOL

...love Maegan said...

omg this is hilarious!! Love the Leo animated GIF!!! ...I also love your door knobs.

Caroline said...

I have been known to do the sa,e when necessary. OK...totally love the kitty pics!!!

Jill said...

Gorgeous cat. I once had a furniture maker hide from me when he owed me money. I walked in, he saw me, and then hid behind the door. I was too embarrassed for both of us to confront him.

Lorena said...

Haaa,
I have done that too. Hide.
I remember that I used to work at a courier company counter many, many years ago.
Customers would always come at closing time.
So I would lock the door and turn off the lights and if anyone tried to peek in I would just lay low on the floor until they went away. It always worked.

Heather said...

Kitteh! I love cats when they are in pictures or in someone elses house. I don't want one of my own. LoL

my wv is trator... Wonder if that means something...

Hanako66 said...

ha!! they say that we are more like our pets than we would like to think!

Ren- Lady Of The Arts said...

i am scared to get a cat for fear of inviting something crazier than I am into my home.

Kitty Stampede said...

bahhahahaha...this literally made me laugh out loud, loud. I am the exact same way. I am a sneaky little bugger too. I love to look out the window to see what the neighbors are up to. sometimes they give you such reason. i live in an apt and there is this young, quite handsome guy that is always working on his itty, bitty red honda civic, i wouldn't be surprised if he kissed it and jerked off on the damn thing..lol. anyways i can totally relate to this. i always try to avoid stupid situations and ending up being a sneaky weirdo..hahaah. it's fun though.

and this is fudged but i can't see your damn pictures of your cutie pie Leo. I must have to restart my computer or something..or do some cleaning out of it or something. will be back to see the pics!!!

enjoy your day...friday is tomorrs!!! woo!!!

TERI REES WANG said...

Good Kitty...

blueviolet said...

If I see anyone in the grocery store that I know, I will hide!

Pretty Little World said...

Your cat is so cute!!

Sometimes I wish that I could hide from students in the same way as you hid from the curator... sadly there's very little hiding space when you have to stand at the front of the classroom :(

diane said...

Letter to Leo:
I love you.

hope505 said...

aww...what a sweetiepie, waiting to pounce on you! Hi Leo!

My smart cat will stand on his hind legs to nip me right in the buttocks sometimes...naughty boy! *hahaha! He knows it's my @ss...sometimes he'll race up behind me and put his paws up to pat it, too. What can I do. He likes the bootay.

freeteyme said...

lol well, my dog is very very much my little miss prissy - she does not like to go out when it is hot, she does not like to step out in the grass when it is wet.

Savvy Gal said...

LOL....

You're Lucky I Don't Have a Gun... said...

your pictures of leo scared me. not so much because of him, but more because i was expecting it to be like those websites where they're like "this room is haunted... if you look closely and long enough you just may see a spirit..." and then some stupid mother fucking banshee face shows up screaming on your computer.

The Seeker said...

This is too funny :-)

And Leo seems so cute, besides he has his personality.... lol lol

Luv

JUNKER JANE said...

OMG your new header......OMG, I want that as a print...omg......pass out....

Midtown Girl said...

That would have been an awesome youtube video! I have hidden from dates before...I should share the tales...LOL>

Vivienne said...

I have animals that won't leave me alone. No skulking for them. It's like they're glued to my ass.

However, I have avoided people before. Sometimes the people I avoid are my kids...

Kristine said...

I have crawled on my hands and knees in my place to hide from the landlord and do my best to avoid everyone, antisocial bitch that I am.I am trying to figure out how to install a surveillance camera at my door so that I can spy on anyone who dares darken my doorstep.
And my cat is totally psycho. I know he is plotting my death as I speak.

Stacy Conner said...

I can't believe another adult hides like I do! I too have hidden from a boss in such a manner and thought what would I say if they caught me.

PS - this is Big Red from I Love It Everyday! Got another blog for my new biz. Check it out when you are not hiding from the world. (I have been about blogging on one blog, how the fuck and I going to do two?)

WendyB said...

Jennine of the Coveted complained to me that she once had an emotionally detached cat. More detached than the usual cat, I guess.

Dancing Branflake said...

Haha! You crack me up! My in-laws bichons are way too pyscho. I could write a book. A very long book. I have so many typos in the comment but I feel comfortable enough with you to not care.

pinkapplecore said...

Thank you for the comment, seriously I love comments from new people!


I have an evil cat she likes to bite my feet or drink out of my cups...grr

ASSHOLE BOYFRIEND said...

He's making sure the coast is clear before he smokes a cig and downs one of your Mr. Pibbs.

anotherfishinthesea said...

hahahah i am just imagining you doing this. so so sneaky :)

also the my little pony. oh my god. i dont know what to say.

Iva said...

omg hilarious and totally awesome! love what you've done with Leo's B&W image!! super!

hiding isn't always bad!! LOL you are fab!

Asylum Dolly said...

Ahahahahaa! You crack me up. I'm just picturing you holding your breathe and standing still as a statue just waiting for him to go away...hehehehe. Sometimes it is necassary to be sneaky. I enjoy hiding from people too i have to admit!
Your cat looks devious. In my cat owning days (tear!) i had a kitty who liked to RUN UP MY LEGS as soon as it knew my back was turned. I'd do the dishes, then all of a sudden i would feel the burning pain of it's needle-like claws digging in as it joyously pretended my leg was a coconut tree.
They can be such evil fuckers! But that's why we love them :D

Ooh- also when i was a kidlet, we had a dog that i SWEAR was schizophrenic. I'm talking wild mood swings like you wouldn't believe. She would wag her tail, and roll over onto her back for a belly scratch, then as soon as you touched her she would snarl, and bare her fangs until you backed away. Sometimes if you weren't quick enough she would bite your hand. HARD. Also, if you threw a ball for her, she would happilly run and catch it, but don't even THINK about trying to get it back.
I guess it wasn't her fault- my dad rescued her from an asshole who liked to pinch her for fun :(. So she had an abusive puppyhood, poor fing.

also, one time, i knew a guy who had a pet cockatoo who had the run opf the backyard. he was a FUCKING PSYCHO and would chase you and try to nip the back of your heels (the bird, not the guy!), and i was terrified of it! Polly wanna cracker? Yeah, polly, a FIRECRACKER, up where the feathers don't grow.
(i don't actually advocate stuffing explosives into the rectums of birds, or any other animals, but, ya know what i mean!)

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

My friend has a cat with a major attitude. I tried to sneak my hand toward her head once and she SMACKED me with her paw. Sheesh.

I like to peek and hide too. I spy on my gross neighbors to see if they'll continue throwing trash on our (communal) refuse room floor instead of down the chute.

Addict said...

I'm laughing out loud just imagining the curator deal. Ha haha. Cats are so devious and they think you're the pet and THEY own you. lol.

Christiejolu said...

OMG yes...I have a cat I rescued..He was badly abused and near death when he was found. Now he is the most loving cat ever..But every now and then he like has a flash back or someting and he just tweeks like crazy...His name is stitch and I always say Stitch has a glitch when he does it...

Alisa said...

Ha! That was a good visual, you flat against the wall, hiding! :)

Sam said...

:0) Leo! Look at you! Such a sweetie! As above said - had the best image of you flattened against the wall with that guy marching past calling out your name!!!

Bromeliad said...

Do you sit on the windowsill for hours?

Diana said...

i love the gif! and the kitty!

I'm the same way. Whenever I see people from online in my town (like a flickr contact or twitter follower) I FREAK out and run away. I'm weird.
