Dear Gabrielle:

You're such a good kitty to have caught the mouse, and we're very proud of you. But was it really necessary to spit out most of the mouse on the living room floor? Right before your daddy and I were going to eat pulled pork for dinner? It's a good thing for you that a) we both have strong stomachs and b) you're cute.

Go ahead and continue to catch mice, but we'd much rather you just left them on the kitchen floor for us to find.

Love,

The Warm Lap and Provider of Food

Midnight used to love to lay on our dresser.  Then DH made the top of the dresser into a sort of memorial to his father, putting all our family pictures on the dresser top and the wall behind it.  He thought he could tell Midnight not to jump on top of the dresser.  That didn't work.  Midnight still jumped up, but it was hard to get comfortable with all the framed pictures in her way, so she would lay down, then kick anything that interfered with her stretching her legs.  The first frame to bite the dust was a crystal frame with our wedding picture.  It wasn't the last frame to be broken when Midnight kicked it off the dresser.

Midnight died December 2, 2011.  We had her cremated.  The little box with her ashes is on the dresser in her favorite place.  I told DH to put her ashes there because she always wanted to rest there and she can't kick any more pictures off the dresser, so she can stay there forever.

One of my friends picked up a stray cat a long time ago, and the cat was FIV positive, but she lived a few years with them before she finally died.   They had her cremated and brought her home because 'she's never going to be homeless again!'.

And now there's something in my eye.  Anyone got a tissue?

A total aww for this. I leave my cat Ally's ashes on the window sill in the bedroom because that was her favorite spot.

Dear Max,

Not one person has ever come toward you swinging an axe, ready to chop off your head and place it in wall-mounted collection of other murdered Maine Coons. Please stop looking at everyone as though that's what you expect them to do.

Love,
Me.

That's sweet.  I feel the same about my kitties.  When we adopt each other, it is forever.  I have Tasha and Deanna's ashes on the bookshelf in my office because they both loved to help me when I was on the computer.  In fact, Deanna pouted for months when I got a new printer.  The old one had a top that was perfectly cat shaped, and warm.  The new one, didn't...

Dear Xena,

You have known me for over four years and I have never once tried to eat you.  Why do you dive under the bed every time I walk in the door?  You are so incredibly sweet and loving, but such a scaredy cat. 

Love,
Me

Dear Tyra,

What is it with you and my harp??? I was just tuning it and you not only wanted to sing along, you were digging your claws into my leg.  I promise you that the strings are not made of catgut!!!

Love,

Dear Bug,

There's no food in there.

It took a couple of looks before I found her!
After cleaning out my Dad's house, I have this advice:  If you haven't used it in a year, throw it out!!!!.

Dear Gizmo,

I'm glad that you've accepted the 'bad man' being in the house and come out from behind the couch, but going to the other extreme really wasn't necessary. He likes you of course, happy to give you a pat or a cuddle, but spending the entire night trying to leap into his lap (especially when I am already occupying it) and sulking loudly when you're put on the floor is very offputting for both of us.

Please to be toning it down just a little.

Thanks

Dear Moose,

I would never have taken you over to my now-ex's place to visit if I'd known you were going to pick up so many annoying habits from his cat.  My hair is clean and brushed and does not need to be groomed, thank you very much, nor do I need a second bath from your tongue after I get out of the shower.  I most especially do not need my head clawed and hair pulled and toes chewed on during your efforts to see to my personal hygiene.

Love,
The nanny.

Dear Pumpkin,

You are so cute. Yes, I know you are. So tiny too. But that does not mean that you have the right to place your baby kitten paws on my face and then chomp on my glasses. Seriously Pumpkin? I'm not even your foster mommy!

Your (seriously peeved) paw and chin cleaner.

Dear Pumpkin,

Humans find it even more annoying when you steal their glasses than when you chew on them - whether you take them from their nightstand or right off their faces.

Dear Moose,

Thank you for the suggestion. I will try that when I am a little bigger and older. I'm not even eight weeks yet! I am still too little, and I think Auntie's glasses are bigger than me!

Sincerly,
Your Friend,

Pumpkin the Kitten

P.S. Auntie told me I only needed one, either Sincerly or Your Friend, but I like it with both. And she told me I spelled sincerly wrong. What does she expect? I'm only a baby!

Dear Pumpkin and Moose,

The second most annoying thing you can do to them is to climb up on to the bed-side table at night and hork all over everything, including the glasses. The most annoying is if you can manage to do in on their pillow - while they're sleeping on it.

Best wishes,

Cassie Cat

Dear Pumpkin and Moose and Cassie,
     I've discovered an EVEN MORE annoying thing! Horking into your person's ear while they're sleeping. It's so funny to watch them wake up and realize that they can't straighten out their head without getting everything yucked up.

Always,
Dorsey Cat

Dear Pumpkin and Moose, Cassie, and Dorsey Cat:

All those are good, thank you for the suggestions. We plan to add them to our arsenal soon. We would like to point out--actually, this is Aprodite's specialty--that the ultimate in annoying behaviors is to dump on the comforter. The human will freak out. (Trust me, there is no other description for it.) If your human has a $150 "dry clean only" comforter, that's good. But a cheap one will do as well. Bonus points if it's a king or California king size that won't fit in the washer.

Best regards,

Amara, Athena, Aphrodite
