If you follow me on Twitter, you may think I tweet a lot of cat photos. And it’s true, I do. My furry children are adorable. And they do adorable things. And I must share them.

This is Nimitz at his best. At his best means when he’s sleeping. When he’s awake, all bets are off. He is the most destructive cat I’ve ever had in my life. He once knocked an oil painting off the wall. A big one. He stood on the piano and pulled it until the (admittedly old) wire broke. Crazy cat.

I’ve discovered the most fabulous product, thanks to him. Quake Putty. If you live in an earthquake zone, you know what I’m talking about. This is not something we need here in the South. Unless you have a Nimitz, that is. Quake Putty looks like silly putty. Except that it holds things (like vases of flowers, for example) down on the furniture so your fuzzy wrecking ball can’t destroy them. It doesn’t harm wood, either, which is great. I have two packs of the stuff. Came in really handy at Christmas with the extra decorations I set out, I can tell you.

Am I the only person with a destructive pet?
