Kitten-ticing

Remove them from behind the sofa with the minimum of fuss

I've just got two lovely kittens [Pete and Dud] who are an absolute joy. When they are not chasing their tails, they love nothing better than to sleep behind the sofa.

Unfortuntely, I don't quite trust their ability to distinguish between my carpets and their litter tray so come the end of the evening, my furry housemates need to be removed from behind the sofa to place of warmth and safety. Not as easy as it sounds ...

So i present a tool for the job. Flat metal at the top so that it fits neatly betwix sofa and wall/radiator, paddle shaped at the bottom to fill the gap, powered for warm air to be pushed through a grill in the paddle ... gently encourages Pete and Dud out into the open.

       Just put some plastic sheeting behind the sofa until the kitties are litter trained. Shouldn't take long, anyway. Otherwise, why not use the vacuum cleaner?

       a vacuum cleaner! DrCurry, I can't ... its cruel... I don't want to hurt them... Also, don't want them 'performing' in the lounge

       nice thought, jonny, but your gentle hands are better than any tool could be. you can probably pick them up without even waking them if they are truly asleep.   

       aaah! pete and dud, how sweet and what a double act.   

       (one of mine refuses to be lifted up at all and digs all her nails into the carpet leaving the same number of little perforations if I persist.)

       Hm. Pete. We once had a cat named 'Pete.' He was fond of hiding behind the bathtub. Impossible to remove, although he was very good about sanitary concerns. He is now my parents' cat and rechristened 'Kitsy-Katsy' (which, I think, is a joke).
