Cats that paw on doors are a major annoyance. You know what I'm talking about. I'm talking about when they stand in front of a door and then proceed to place their paws on the door and drag them down it over and over until you come open the door for them. Fatty Feefs is a professional door pawer-onner. She will stand at your door and paw on it for 15 minutes straight until you let her in. Sometimes, in the middle of the night, she chooses a random closet or bathroom that she just HAS to be in and then paws on it. Someone has to get up and let her in, but as you recall, I'm lazy, so I'll put up with it until someone else decides it is annoying enough to end. Sometimes our cats do this exact action, only to sharpen their claws. Which, I guess works, because when I piss one of my kitties off, I pay. I pay big time. I pay like $50. Only not cash, I pay with pain. And it hurts so good. There is claw marks in 2 specific spots on my deck. There are claw marks at one post on the deck, and the door to my parents' room from the deck. They look a little something like this:

I love my kitties, but this is just too much. I run this ****.
