Dear Harley,

You would not go near the heated bed I bought you until we put daddy's yucky, smelly shirt on it. Not five minutes later, you were curled up asleep!

I'm glad I've got your number.

Love,

Mom

Mocha, you and I have a date with the claw trimmers tonight. My hand is going to look terrible with 6" long scratches all over it.

Dear Harley,

Now you have a shirt, don't let them think they can have it back! If you look around somewhere the human servants have a big box full of daddy- and mommy-smelling clothes you can curl up in, or knock over and drag  off to make a nest under the bed. If you shed enough fur on it, even the evil eater of laundry device down stairs will give up on trying to stop the clothes smelling of daddy.

Regards,
Matilda

Dear Footlets,

I know we've been having some very cold nights, and it's lovely to have a hot water cat snuggled up to me. However, I must insist that you firstly do not put your paws in my mouth and secondly that having done so, you do not for the love of all that is decent and holy start kneading your claws in and out! It's not a nice way to wake up, having your lips clawed!

Just pretend you're a teddy bear and I'll happily cuddle you all night long.

love,
Mama
and it appears that Footlets hopped onto the computer and read this post, because guess what he did last night? Yep, I had a lovely warm purring snuggly cat in my arms all night and no paws in my mouth. It was delightful!

We've had very cold nights here, and the Demons have been taking over more and more of the bed. This 2am, I woke up to find I was completely pinned under the doona by a Demon on my legs and another snuggled as close to my side as he could. A certain amount of tact and bribery was involved before I could struggle out and rearrange blankets so everyone was warmer.

Good news! Your insurance company says they'll cover you. Unfortunately, they also say it will be with dirt.

Harley is our most experienced cat, and has had many shirts of his very own. Also, our laundry area is on the top floor, for all the sense that makes.

Dear Mikey,

I just want to state for the record that it is my pillow!  I wouldn't mind sharing with you, but I do mind you lying down with your head on the pillow and then using both front paws to shove me off of my pillow!

And I want you to stop popping up the shades.  The first time was an accident, the last dozen or so times (including just a couple of minutes ago) was on purpose.  If I wanted them open, I would have them open.  They are closed to block the sunlight and keep the house cooler.  Please leave them alone.

Love,

Dearest Maya:

What is your current obsession with the back door? You stand there and cry, or lay there desperately bunny kicking in an effort to get it open.  You are an indoor kitty, you do not go outside.  Your recent outside adventure nearly had me in tears. Stop it or the spray bottle will continue to be used.

Dear Ocelot,

I am so glad DS found you under the building yesterday when you were overcome with heat. I'm glad you're improving in air conditioning and with ample food and water and hope you enjoy your new home with the twins.

Love,

DS's Mom

Ocelot is 6-8 weeks old, very tiny and grey with a wild tabby pattern and very lucky to be alive!

Dear nameless stray kitty,

I'm going to get your picture if it's the last thing I do!

Dear neighborhood kitties,

I know the people across the street in both directions and the people one building down and the people behind me all feed you.  I don't believe you when you tell me you're starving to death.

Love,

Dear Duchess,

I am glad that you have recovered from your ordeal.  I agree, the spot under the bed was an excellent refuge from the overwhelming crowd that invaded your home for the barbecue and from those dreadful fireworks.  But no, sweetie, you may not have a second breakfast to help you recover.

Dear Matilda,

I am quite well aware of your ambition to spend your remaining years in four square feet with a bed, food, and litter-tray within reach, preferably with a self-maintaining sun-lit patch.

Us moving the litter tray into the bedroom is solely because of building work, not the first step towards your dream. Don't get your hopes up. It is going back.

And dragging the entire tray under the bed will not change this.

Regards,
Mum (who is still wondering how you moved something that heavy and covered)

Dear Harley and/or Mocha,

We have lived in the townhouse for three years. We have never had issues with the blinds. Which one of you went through them, got stuck and broke them getting out? I'm blaming your human father for closing them all the way.

No love.

Mom
