We need to have a talk. I know you like the screened in porch. Really-yelling at the door will not convince me to let you out any faster. In fact, it makes me want to avoid the door altogether.
Bob-we have bought you beds. We have bought you kitty towers. We have bought you toys. You have now decided that a cardboard box is your favorite sleeping spot/toy. And that is okay. But you need to understand that, when you use a box as a toy, it falls apart. Soon you will have neither bed nor toy. And don't come complaining to me when that happens, okay? Also-reaching out of the box to sharpen your claws on the computer chair is not as stealthy as you think it is.
Harry-you do not become invisible when you hide under things. A 16 pound cat hiding under a little sleeping pad is NOT invisi-cat. Honestly, you are hanging out at both ends. And in the middle. And you make a big lump. Bob isn't fooled either-and he does know you are there if you take a swipe at his tail when he goes by.
Both of you-you sleep all day. Then you want to spend all night playing and cuddling. That doesn't work for us-we have to go to work every day. Let's see what we can do about staying up a little more in the day, and sleeping a little more at night, okay?
I am glad that you came to live with us and, after your former home, it is wonderful that you have settled in with us so well. I am amazed at how friendly you are, that you don't have litter box problems, and that you are just the sweetest kitties on the planet. But please, please, please, let me go potty and shower alone. I don't harass you when you go to the bathroom or bathe, do I?
