Normally, I would never allow my cat on the table or counter tops. We adopted him 12 years ago, he was estimated at 5-7 years old then. It was so hot, and the dogs were playing on the hardwood floors, so he decided to nap on the table. I think maybe I should cut him a little slack. I've seen worse things on peoples kitchens tables. It doesn't take much effort to wipe it off. Apparently it takes a lot of effort for the cat to do much of anything in the 90 degrees heat!
