S/O Dear Dog...Dear Cat

<< < (183/645) > >>

Dear Morty

I appreciate that you're not a good traveller, and I did expect the 40 minutes of caterwauling* on the way to the vet on Saturday.  I very much appreciate that you didn't do it so much on the way home.  And I'm incredibly grateful that you only peed in your box instead of your usual messy, smelly trick.

Please understand though - you're 13, which makes you a bit of an 'old man' in the cat world, so getting your vision, blood pressure, blood and wee tests done are perfectly acceptable - don't want you getting sick like Milly did, now do we?  Thank you for being relatively patient and cooperative for most of the visit. 

The shaved spots will grow back, I promise!  And believe it or not, I think you actually shed more hair during that visit than got shaved off.

PS please come home for dinner!

* Isn't caterwauling the most perfectly appropriate word?   ;D

Dear Oscar

Please stop pulling books off the bookshelf at 3 in the morning (yes - I know its you!).  Aunty Jane thinks we have a poltergeist!!

The one who buys you the good stuff, only to have you turn your nose up at it...

Dear Carmen,

Please stop provoking Figaro and giving him "the finger" when he can't chase you up the back of the wall unit.  Especially when that means you disturb the cable box on the way.  One of these days one of you will get hurt and your mum will be very sad.


She Who Buys You Fancy Feast

Dear Harry,
DH & I had a cunning plan.  We would let you go outside in the snow and you would hate it and quit complaining at the door.  How could such a simple plan go wrong?  I'll tell you how-you are a complete whacko and enjoyed playing in the snow.  You are a very strange boy.

She who is NOT taking you out to play in the snow today

Dear Artie,

Cats are naturally dignified and graceful.  Except for you.  There is no universe in which flopping on you back and asking for a belly rub is dignified.  Also, you are littler than Harry.   And when you came into the shelter, you weren't underweight.  So I am not sure where your food issues come from, but we will not be feeding you every 10 minutes.  And you don't need more food than Harry.

The feeding unit

Is Harry a Maine Coon or Maine Coon Mix?  Every one I've ever known has just adored playing in the snow.  My old cat Booger (RIP) would jump off a second floor balcony to get into the snow.  He was a very happy kitty for the few years we lived in North Dakota.
