A family in the U.S. recently got a new kitten, a girl named Faye. She became the companion of the family’s pet cat, Spike, and they became great friends. But the adult Spike did not always support the little one’s activity and curiosity.
“[I] remember thinking during the meeting, ‘Wow, she’s really having fun right now,’ because she was in the midst of an intense zoomie session,” Taylor Nelson, Faye’s mom, told The Dodo (Nelson is also an associate video editor/producer at The Dodo). “She’s pretty much always zooming around, but this time she was full-on sprinting up and down the hallway, and would kangaroo-kick off the walls in order to keep up her momentum when running.”
One day the gang’s owner, Taylor, was sitting in her room participating in a video conference for work. Suddenly she heard a noise and when she saw adult Spike asleep on the couch, she knew right away that little Faye was exploring something again.
She realized the cat had dropped something and thought it was a flower pot. But when she walked into the room, she was shocked. The cat had knocked the TV off the table!“She did, in fact, knock over a couple of plants like I assumed, but she also somehow knocked over a 30-inch TV and a humidifier along with the plants,” Nelson said. “It was like a perfect disaster sandwich, with the plants broken on the bottom, the TV face down on top of the plants and then the humidifier spilled over. This was also all on my rug, so the water from the humidifier made a nice muddy mess under the plants and TV.”
The owner confessed that no one expected such havoc in the whole room from one little cat. And the culprit herself walked around with surprised eyes, saying, “And who did all this?” Of course, curious little Faye was forgiven but only for the first time!“She definitely knew she was guilty, but was trying to act like she had no idea what was going on and just found out about the mess when I did, because she only showed her face after I started cleaning up, and was slinking around sniffing everything with her ears back,” Nelson said. “I couldn’t even be mad at her because the whole scene was so funny, and honestly it was my fault I didn’t have everything secured, knowing how she is,” Nelson added. “My boyfriend and I are actually going to nail the TV down like in a cheap motel, and I’m planning on getting a couple of baby cams so I can finally witness all of her craziness on video because she’s just one of the goofiest, weirdest cats I’ve ever met.”
