“Whatcha doin’ there, big kitty?” -Mayhem
“Duh. No way is Mom keeping me from having direct contact with the furniture. Hey, does this towel make my butt look big?” -Chaos
“zOMG, big kitty, your butt, it is huge!” -Mayhem
“I’ll get you for that, my pretty!” -Chaos
“Um, big kitty? You can’t really see where I am with that towel over your head.” -Mayhem
“Hmph. Another perfectly good plan, foiled.” -Chaos
“Big kitty? Are you going to sulk all day now?” -Mayhem
“Go away, May. You can’t see me. I’m invisible.” -Chaos
“Sheesh, be that way. Wow, you’ve done a lovely job of getting lots of fur on this freshly vacuumed chair, big kitty.” -Mayhem
“Why, thank you, May. I think it’s some of my best work to date.” -Chaos

Silly mum! Did she really think that towel would stop you guys from dropping hair all over the furniture?
Careful Chaos, mom could turn to plastic next.
One is never completely dressed without cat fur (or, dog for that matter).
hee hee hee. FAIL! But its definitely a cute photo op…
Yeah, those clear plastic slipcovers, great idea!
And a white chair!
That’s hilarious. I gave up on everything except for keeping the kitty off the counters ages ago (in the old place, it was out of the kitchen too, because she would pull things out of the trash and jump on the counters).
Oh kitties! I’m on the same mission (as my new sofa has cut velvet upholstery), and I’m having similar “success.”
I think they see the towels as “my this would be a grand place to tunnel into.”
We’ve given up trying to keep fur off the furniture. But they make several handy gadgets for fur collecting, now I just need to invest in them. 🙂
I LOVE kitties under blankets. Mary Jane likes to sleep under our covers and I think it is the cutest thing EVER.
Yup – roll on the just-vacuumed furniture, poop in the just cleaned litter box!
Isn’t it nice to have such entertainment in your own home?
You mean you don’t already have black furniture? 🙂 Of course we now have a black couch and our neighbor’s shedding cat is white 😉
Chris- I can’t keep towels around because a certain black and white character loves to pee on them. And worse.
we got a leather sofa so the fur wouldn’t stick. instead, we have ding marks all over it from toenails, rings etc. I call it the ‘distressed’ look….
I saw an ad for a little tool that specifically picks up cat hair off upholstered furniture (holds more that 145 sticky roller sheets!)–and they demonstrated it with black cats on a white sofa. You could be their spokesperson.
I have given up with all pieces of FURniture except my living room sofa, which is covered with a king sized sheet Benny likes to hide under.
How sweet! Putting towels up there on the sofa for the kitties to roll around in. They love that, you know. 😉
Look, Chaos made a fort! Excellent use of one’s time.
Srsly, is there a way to keep the furniture fur free? I can’t even keep me fur free.
I thought when you had pets, fur was a must have on the furniture!
Ahh! Fur Art!
We have Fur Sculpture at our house!
‘you can’t see me I’m invisible’ hee! :o)
ROTFL at “does this towel make my butt look big”! I don’t even try any more. I just buy lots of those tape roller thingies.
The best thing I’ve found is the new Pledge upholstery roller! I can confirm that it works – better than sticky rollers, rubber sponges and buzzing covers (yes, I’ve tried everything).
Hehe 🙂 They aren’t daft those kitties.
I swear they really do sit around and talk like that all day long!
Light-colored furniture, light-colored towels…
what color are those cats? Or are you just giving them the perfect blank canvas to work on?
