Dear Kali,
When you disappear for 8 days and have to be returned in the middle of the night by a kindly person who saw my flyers, do not be surprised that I don't want to let you go outside when I'm not right there to keep an eye on you.
I spent those evenings and days (with 2 major thunderstorms in that time), walking through the neighborhood in the dark, putting up flyers and visiting animal shelters on the weekends.
I do not wish to repeat the experience, so you can glare at passing dogs from the window instead of the front fence.
With All My Love,
Moralia

Ohmygod, ohmygod, ohmygod, Venus, Carmen looks *exactly* like my much beloved dearly departed feline soulmate, Persephone. White whiskers and everything! I am reeling with emotion.

I'm sorry she is no longer with you.  I'm sure she was a kitty of great character.

Maybe Carmen is related to her because as soon as she saw that bed her expression said "Mine!  All mine!"

Dear Baby-mama kitty,

Thank you for letting me borrow Coffee Bean for cuddling purposes while you're taking a break to eat/poo/whatever.





Love,

The babysitter.

SQUEEEEEEE!!!!

Oh Da Cute! The Cutest Evah! 

We lovelovelove black kitties.  I had Spooky, a black half-Persian, when I met DH and he fell in love with her, and me. ;D Unfortunately, due to quarantine laws and Spooky's age, we left her with my XH when we moved to Hawaii.  Then we adopted Midnight Kitty (all black) and her sister Bootsie (a Tuxedo) and took good care of them for 18 years and 19-1/2 years, respectively.  Now we have Buddy, born feral about a year ago, and he is pure jet black.  If we didn't have him, I would be trying to steal Coffee Bean from greencat.

Dear Mocha,

I am slowly assimilating to your ways. You love to curl up somewhere hidden when I go to bed, then your human dad locks you away in our bedroom when he comes to bed.

Between 4 and 5 AM you strike. Wet nose to mom's nose. Head rubbing on my hands. Then you lay upon my rib cage. I enjoy the purring, but I do not enjoy the part when your entire 7 lbs is held by one of your paws on my ribcage. I have a large bruise now.

I will be keeping my bedroom door shut.

Love,

Mom

Dear Mocha,

Love,

Mom
Dear Mom,

I'm warning you: If you shut that door, you will get NO sleep tonight or any other night.

I am MOCHA; Hear me roar! >:D

p.s. from MK: We joke that cats are the Enforcers of the Open Door Policy. When a door is closed and they stand there making noise, we Hoomans interpret that as them wanting to be on the other side of the door.  This creates frustration for the Hooman when we open the door and the cat walks away without going through the door.  We wonder, "Why did s/he want me to open the door if s/he didn't want to go out?" Silly Hoomans  :) Cats are simply notifying us of a violation of the Open Door Policy because we have opposable thumbs and can operate the round knobs.  If Hoomans would just use those handy lever handles, the cats could jump up and open the door themselves ... then walk away.

DH shuts the door, so Mocha wakes me up to give her affection and let her out. I eventually go across to the door, open it, and then visit the bathroom. By the time I come out, she has left the room. lol

Uh well, don't move to Vancouver any time soon.  They have banned door knobs in new construction.  I'm 99.999999 perscent sure cats were behind it.

Coffee Bean kind of looks black in the photos, but compared to actual black things like clothing and his inky darling mother, he's actually a BROWN kitten :)  He has two lovely black siblings I'm still trying to get my friends to take home with them though...

Dear Ciaran,

I was enjoying a lovely bath this morning. Then grandma went to see where you were. She couldn't find you anywhere. She happened to look up. And found your stupid self on top of the door. I had to hop out of the tub, get on a chair, and grab you. It was very undignified for me. Please don't do it again.

Sincerely,

A member of staff.

Dear batkitten:

I should have known that your discovery that you could drink water running out of the faucet would be shortly followed by a discovery that you could meow at me to demand that the faucet be turned on for you.

Love,

The zookeeper.

Midnight and Bootsie were very dark sable brown with faint tiger stripes in full sunlight.  They were so close to black that we didn't argue with people who thought they were black.  Buddy (aka Buster) is true jet black and so handsome.  He was born feral and still hasn't completely domesticated. He's a bit bipolar: As affectionate as a Ragdoll one minute and biting the next. Sometimes he's our best Buddy and other times it's "Watch it, Buster!"  He will bite the ankle of the hand that feeds him!
