A few weeks ago, a friend texted me this link: “People Have Discovered the Perfect Way to Mess with Your Cat.”
Once I knew it didn’t involve terrifying your poor cat with a cucumber, I was all in. Here’s the gist:
You make a square on the floor out of tape. You turn away, and BAM! There’s a cat in the square.
Naturally, we had to give this a try.
So, Sunday afternoon, we laid the trap. My son put down the square at 4:26 p.m.
We waited. A cat got into an empty laundry basket near the square at 4:48 p.m., but the square remained empty.
We kept waiting. Cats walked by the square. Aine even sniffed at the tape.
Aine took a nap at 7:51 p.m. Seamus was napping next to me.
At 8:46 p.m., Seamus was asleep again, becoming one with the sofa.
Aine and Emmett chased (and ate) a bug. That was 8:31 p.m.
Finally – finally! – at 10:22 p.m., Seamus sat in the square to take a bath.
