How to annoy your beans; timing is everything

See, my fellow cats, drinking your bean's water is often sufficient to get the beans a bit annoyed at you. But if this has become your habit, and the beans have decided it's just a fact of life, then you have to be more creative with your timing.

My secretary was a bit slow typing this for you, but a week ago we had really bad storms. Mombean was having trouble sleeping anyway that night because of all the storms, and then woke up again at 2am when the power went out. Since the bean alarm clock is electric operated and the backup battery had died, she went down to get batteries. She then realized that she couldn't see the batteries, so she fumbled around for a flash light. She couldn't find the button on the flashlight, so she woke up Dadbean and asked how to turn it on. Dadbean said "you hit the "On" button". Well, of course that smartypants response made mombean REALLL mad at 2am and they said bad words at each other. Dadbean turned the flashlight on and mombean put batteries in the alarm clock. Then she realized that since it was 2am and maybe the neighbors were asleep, she should go find the power company number and call and make sure the power company knew we had no power. So she wanders around the house more with the flashlight. The flashlight awakened the birdies, and they started banging around loudly in the cage. Several times during all her wandering around in the dark, I get underfoot and each time mom says more bad words. Mom is quite annoyed at this point, and is getting warm with the air conditioning not working, and goes upstairs and calls the power company finally. At this point while she is trying to call the power company, she decides she wants some water. And at this exact moment, she notices she hears a noise from her side of the bed--- it is ME, drinking her water! Even though I have my own cup in the bedroom to try and prevent me from doing this! See, timing is everything!!!!

That really sounds like a fun activity, Texas! I am going to try it myself next time the lights go out.

Texas, I tip my kitty hat to you. You are right, timing is everything. And it's a fact that our bean's water always tastes better than ours!
Smooches to you - I hope you are feeling good today!

This is a great story! I bet you stayed out of your mom's way the next few hours.

Gotta hand it to you, Texas. You do have perfect timing!

Great timing Texas. Your mum should know by now that her water is always going to taste better than yours.
