Dear Figaro,

These early morning chases you do with Carmen may be good exercise for you, but please refrain from including the bed in your marathon course.  You scare Mommy and can potentially scratch her.

Dear Harry,

I know we just bought you a stroller so that we could take you for walks.  And I know you enjoy them and probably consider it part of your duties as Monarch of the Land to make a Royal Progress daily.  But it was up over 100F the last two days, and didn't cool down until about 4 am.  Sitting in the stroller yelling at me is hardly going to make me want to take you out.  And, as I am an (unpaid) servant and not a slave, no matter what you would prefer, you are just going to have to live with it.  And you need to quit yowling at the neighbor's black cats when we walk by them.  They are allowed to be out alone.  You are required to have an entourage.  Get a grip, dude.

Love,
Your Loyal Stroller-Pusher

According to my mom the only thing that proves that DH and I are not crazy cat people is that the stroller was a thrift store one and only cost $10.  We do leash him for his walks, but he won't really walk on a leash.  He does get out and plays up at the park or at the elementary school.   8)

Dear Mehitabel The Brainless;

I am very sorry that you are now an only cat and may or may not miss your late brother.  (It is impossible to tell because there is such a vacancy inside your skull that it shines out for all the world to see.)  Mommy feels badly about this and has consequently decided to stop locking you in the basement at night.  Mommy, however, is starting to reconsider her position on this issue.  Performing your four a.m. rain dance on my chest and fighting madly with the bed mice (a.k.a. my feet) at five a.m. is not doing a whole lot for my quality of sleep, and I am becoming less well-disposed to your perceived loneliness in consequence.  For pity's sake, cut it out!  Or back to the basement you go, and you won't get any apologies from Mommy... and maybe not any Greenies, either!

Just you wait, Whirling Dervish girl... once school's out, we're searching for kittens.  You'll look back on these days with nostalgia... if your attention span lasts longer than microseconds.  (It doesn't.)

I should have named you "Meatball" instead of "Mehitabel"--it seems appropriate somehow.

Love you anyway, Foolish Feline.

Misha412, just wanted to say I love your cats' names.  It's rare to find another Bleach fan, at least one who'll admit to it.

Dear Lucy and Max,

Those are mommy's feet at the end of the bed, not an evil Sheet Monster. Please do not attack them at 3:00am. I would be most obliged.

Love,
Me.

Dear Smudge,

DH and I were TRYING to have a somewhat nice/romantic dinner tonight for our 25th anniversary.  We were very nice and even gave you a small portion of the beef tenderloin.  Did you have to thank us by horking it up in the hallway during our dessert???

Love,
Mom

It does. Especially if it is right next to your ear. "Umm... sick? SICK! AUGHHHH! Not on the sheets! NOT ON THE SHEETS!!!!"
You are only young once. After that you have to think up some other excuse.

Dear Bootsie;

I just want to thank you for jumping down from the bed to hork on the nice laminate flooring, not on the bed or library books like your dear departed sister, Midnight.  Also, I appreciate that you hork in the doorway/hall where we can find it, not under the bed where we store everything and it will be years before we find it.  Even more, I take responsibility for not giving you the hairball remedy (which you love so much) frequently enough.  I promise to give you more if it will prevent those hairballs.  At least you only hork a hairball once a week or so.  Not like Midnight who vomited frequently, especially towards the end, and for no discernable reason. :'(

You are The Cat now and you're doing a good job!

Mommy

Yeah. My fiance got me hooked on it. the kittens came with the name of Bob and Rose. While those are nice names, they did not fit their personalities. So, out comes the Bleach reference.

Dear Cat

It is lovely that you want to spend time with us in the morning before we go to work but for goodness sake watch where you're waving your tail.  Cleaning tea off the coffee table, the coaster, the carpet and you is no fun for anyone.

Dear Matilda,

We are aware of the loose floorboard in the bathroom (after you hid prawns under it) and have filled in the gap under it. This should mean that it is of no further interest to you.

Instead, it means that throughout the day we are intermittently treated to thwap-wappawappawappa as you try out your new musical instrument. Sitting on one end, hooking your claws over the other and pulling up until the claws slip and the floorboard must be fun, from the number of times you do it a day.

However, one of these days you are going to shut your tail under it or the board will break.  Worse, it will catapult you into a wall, or even the BATH. So shutting you out is in your own best interests, and we are not torturing you.

Regards,
The staff

P.S. Stephen, that door is closed to keep your sister out, not because there is anything interesting behind it. Please stop opening it and letting her back in.

When we first moved to this apartment we had an elderly cat named Vega who discovered that the springy doorstops were the best toy ever.  It was quite annoying to be awakened by THOINGGGGG!!!  THOINGGGGG!!! THOINGGGGG!!! at 2 a.m. (and no, she didn't stop with three THOINGGGGGs.)  Fortunately, the cats we have now have no interest in playing with the springy doorstops.

Dear Beefy,

Please stop being so adorable. We're taking you to adoption on Saturday, and you're going to break my heart.

Love,
