cats + yarn = danger

Loki is turning out to live up to his name - trouble maker - quite well. Some time ago he ate his way through a cardboard box that was housing some yarn, extracted a substantial amount of this yarn, and then set up an elaborate trip-wire with it, a leash, and my bike shoes at the bottom of the stairs. Besides being annoying, it was also quite impressive.


He later showed that this trap may not have been indicative of intelligence and menace so much as a total fluke of spazziness. Below he has wrapped himself up so tightly in the yarn that he is "army-crawling" his way out of it with his front paws...

getting tangled...

wriggling...

the army crawl (Kiki looks on with dilute interest)

Further indication of his lack of intelligence may be that he stuck around after the mess was completed, to take the blame. Even a two-year-old knows to become scarce!

Funny stuff!
The way Kiki just watches is hilarious!

"Getting Tangled should have a larger version.

It kind of looks as though Loki got into spaghetti right now.

Also, Itinerant thinks that Loki looks like he is trying out for the next season of project runway.

I don't know what happened there with the images - usually it lets you click on them to make them bigger, but this is the dud blog post for photos apparently.

I love project runway - Loki and his spaghetti dress is clearly the next big thing!

The "army crawl" is called a "leopard crawl"
