We love cats, we do, but sometimes they are the absolute worst.

Whether it’s knocking over our glass of water (or worse, a cup of tea), scratching up the sofa, or lovingly sinking their claws into our thighs, it sometimes seems as though our feline friends thrive on chaos and destruction.

Case in point is six-month-old kitten Dave, who caused his owners to spend hours cleaning the kitchen after he decided it’d be fun to splatter white paint all over the floor.

Owner Tracy Goree, 55, from Lincoln, wasn’t too pleased when she realised the havoc her pet had caused.

The full time carer said: ‘I heard a noise from the kitchen and knew straight away that Dave was up to mischief.

‘I slowly got up as I was talking to my partner at the time and as Dave had already been messing about in the sink, I wasn’t too worried.

‘Suddenly I heard a crash so I rushed into the kitchen to be met with a sauntering, paint splashed kitten and complete devastation. I remember a panicked “oh my god, no! No, no, no, no!!” and covering my wide open mouth with my hand.

‘It was absolute bloody chaos! My partner and I had pots of paint on the side ready for decorating. One paint pot was on top of another and probably had a slightly lose lid.’

Thankfully Dave’s antics didn’t leave any permanent damage, as his owner was speedy in sorting out the mess.

‘I scooped up the worst bit with a dustpan and a piece of stiff cardboard whilst my partner showered Dave,’ said Tracy.

‘When he came down we both got a bucket of warm water and washing up liquid for the floor.

‘The paint everywhere else was already starting to dry so we poured salt on the worst of it. This acts as an abrasive and we were able to scrub clean the worktop, kettle, toaster and bread bin.

‘It was midnight by then so we decided the rest could wait until we decorate.

‘It took two of us two and a half hours to clean up.’

Even with this palavar, Dave is so adorable that he has quickly been forgiven.

That’s how cats get you – it doesn’t matter how badly they behave, they’re too cute to stay annoyed at.

‘Dave is cute, sweet, adorable and very loving,’ Tracy added. ‘We rescued his mum and sister when she was just pregnant so Dave has been with us since day one.’
