Me: “Um, what the hell is this?”

JB: “What?”

Me: “This. On the sofa. The trap you left me. Where if I sit down next to those pillows a clawed foot will come out and hook me.”

JB: “That’s not a trap. I made a hive for Cat.”

Me: “A . . . cat hive.”

JB: “Yes. A cat hive.”

Me: “Cats don’t have hives.”

JB: “Well what else would you call that?”

Me: “A TRAP.”

JB: “It’s clearly a hive.”

Me: “I will ask my blog readers and if the consensus is that it’s a trap, you owe me twenty bucks.”

JB: “What do I get if they say it’s a hive?”

Me: “What do you think you should get?”

JB: *knowing leer*

The time for voting is NOW. Trap or hive?

That is TOTALLY a trap.

And I completely forgot to watch Survivor last night. Thank goodness for On Demand!

Absolutely a trap – and I love that picture of Cat stealthily peeking out at the end!

I so want you to win, but I have to say it’s a hive.

Um… looks like a trap to me. I suffer from the trap of getting into bed only to find a dog (or two) have decided to surprise be by already being there. (They look like lumpy pillows under the covers.)

A hive! I do this sort of thing all the time. But … I’ve also been known to build my cat a fort out of boxes. I’ve been single for a long, long time …

Well, where JB really missed it was not calling it a LAIR. Bees have hives, felines have LAIRS so my vote is that it was a trap.

JennB

Sorry. Neither. It’s a nest.

I have to vote trap. I mean look at cat peering out with that one little eye there. He’s obviously using his high powered scope to determine your exact location and range to target. Trap, completely a trap.

I go for a cat CAVE. A trap second but def not a hive. Bzzzz!
This trap reminds me of old shows with island savages and beasts where they’d cover a hole and leave wooden stakes (meow claws!) to capture and kill their prey.

Sorry. Definitely a hive for the cat. But a trap for you, with clawed paws ready to sink into your tender flesh. Uh. Do I get two votes?

I have to say trap. What kind of cat has a “hive”?

JB clearly knew what that conversation was going to turn into, which clearly means he wants some good lovin’…and who wants to turn down such a good daddy and husband from good lovin’? So even though I know that cat is deadly….I’m goin’ with hive. love ya! mean it! ;)

it is clearly a fort. or a nest. but maybe your cat is more dangerous then mine.

I suppose it depends on who you are asking — the cat? Your beloved? Either way, I wish I had one — some nights, after long days of teaching…

A hive? I think not. One more vote for TRAP!

Clearly a Trap and oh no! Cat got to JB! How did that happen?

Cat and JB team up in an Evil Plot!

Erin

I agree with Christine, it’s a fort, or a nest.

Though, knowing how evil your cat is, I might have to change my mind and say it’s a trap.

It’s a TRAP. A TRAAAAAAAP! (yelled from the other end of the country as you innocently start to sit down on the couch)

HIVE.

Pocklock
14 years ago

That’s a fort! A fort is sort of like a hive, but it’s also where soldiers (or in this case Cat) plan for attack!

You both win. Take $10 each.

Gotta go with hive.

as much as i enjoy the notion of a cat hive (and may in fact build one for my cats), that is clearly a trap. set for you.

Claudia

Call it what you will, it’s clearly asking for trouble. It’s not a hive nor is it a trap, per se, because the cat is not trapped. Perhaps “booby trap” is a better term. Either way, I’d stay clear of it. Cat clearly has murder in her eyes.

Hive?? I think not. Trap?? More likely. But I would call it a cat fort. Every day when I make my bed I cover a cat with the afghan that goes on top the bed. It’s a similar situation so that if someone sits on the lump that’s her they are a gonner.

Its really an upholstered tent.

If no one really wins, do you just get to watch?

Sabine

I vote trap, and so does my dog. So that’s 2 votes for trap. :) (Although my dog suggested that you should buy him a greenie since you’ll have twenty bucks, so that might be an unethical vote to count)…

McWriter

Trap, trap, DEFINITELY trap! No question. The question is, how will you spend your $20? And does that sum come with a babysitter so you can spend in peace?

hmmm. Was cat there for long? long enough to establish residency status?
My first thought was fort, then lair (because she is so obviously dangerous), then cave (with a handy moon roof/escape hatch). The color is right but hive?? nah.
I gotta vote trap.
Can you trade the 20 bucks for some Haagen Daaz and cheetos??

Hive FTW

Kari

Trick question. I, too, believe it to be more a lair or a fort than a hive, but as between a hive and a trap, I have to go with hive.

Shabbir
14 years ago

I, like many others, would have said it’s a cat cave. Lair is also a good word. But the upshot is that JB is right, and it’s time to, um….you know.

Cass

I’d really call it more of a Cat Den – but if the choice is Trap or Hive – it would be Trap – A hive would have been a blanket draped around the cat in an intentional manner.

Ashley
14 years ago

I would call it a hidden hallow, but if I have to choose between hive and trap….trap it is, hives by definition must have a dome shape.

Paula

It’s a LAIR. Duh.

Emily

Hive…sorry, but i think kitties like a place to “hide”…it would only be a trap if kitty couldn’t escape.

TRAP. I would not want a pissy cat clawing me after I sat on her with my big wide 31 week pregnant Shamu butt!

Jennifer

Well if my only two choice are hive or trap, I’ll go with trap. But seriously it’s a cave. Obviously.

Michelle

I agree with “nest” and “cave” … but since that isn’t one of my choices I’d say hive. Sorry.
