Naughty? Moi?Posted: September 11, 2012
My good friend Mollie is hosting a new competition looking for the naughtiest cat and dog. But I’m finding it tricky to supply a story to enter as I don’t think I’m particularly naughty.
According to the Oxford Dictionary the definition of naughty is:
- (especially of a child) badly behaved; disobedient: you’ve been a really naughty boy
- informal mildly rude or indecent, typically because related to sex: naughty goings-on
- archaic wicked.
The way I see it, its all about perspective:
For example: yesterday when I refused to hurdle, this wasn’t me being deliberately disobedient, my intentions (i.e. to get my daddy fit) were good. And its not like I chewed the hurdle, so I don’t think that counts.
A while ago when I tried to help mummy with the garden and accidentally broke her edging I was trying to help and my efforts went awry. Again, good intentions all round. Is that really considered naughty? I don’t think so.
I did once run away from mummy to try to make friends with Peggy. BUT it was in a effort to be friendly. Over-enthusiasm if you like. Its not like I tried to eat Peggy or anything. I only said hello. Was that naughty? Really?
I have been accused of chewing up one of mummy’s books and also lobotomising Gerry the Giraffe – but there is no evidence to link me to either incident and I stand by my position that evil birds were the culprits!
There were a couple of times where I MAY have appropriated food not meant for me. However, the food in question was left out unattended and in my opinion that made it fair game. So I don’t think they count either.
But as I should really support Mollie’s competition I will submit something. I doubt I’ll have any chance of winning because, well as you can see from above, I’m not very naughty at all!
