My darling Archie,

I am aware that, inside your feline brain, I am not a different species, I am, in fact, a large, hairless cat who is incompetent at keeping herself fed and cleaned, and thus you feel the need to lick me regularly and also to leave dead things at each of my doors, so that I can be fed.

However.

I do *not* appreciate it when you decide that the appropriate response, while you are purring at and nuzzling into my belly and the baby in there kicks at you, is to swipe at said baby.

Yeah. Four nasty claw marks right next to my belly button because Baby kicked right where Archie was rubbing his face on my t-shirt - the shirt itself is fine, just punctured but not torn, though the skin underneath is bleeding.

So *someone* is now shut in the laundry while I disinfect and cover up the scratches. Here's hoping that they heal okay!
... it might frighten them.
Victoria,

I swear I'm laughing with you...not at you :D

Dear Matilda,

Jumping on my lap while I am sitting down is a rare and cute occurance. Jumping on my shoulder however, was so unexpected that we stared nose to nose at each other for a moment. I hink its the first time you;ve ever done that.

A big thank you for turning your head away before you sneezed.
No thank you at all for sneezing over my lunch instead.

Your attempt to follow up by sniffing my afflicted lunch was also not appreciated.

Regards,
Your hungry owner

Might as well let her sniff it to her heart's content. She flavored it.  >:D

Dear Sassy and Peggy:

I'm on to you two, now.  I get home last night, 12 hours early to empty food dishes and both of you acting like you are starving to death.  So much so that I thought my friend forgot to look in on you.  Today, I find out she did look in on you and feed you appropriately.

It won't work again, my dearies.

Love, the food giver.
Our cats would do this within two hours.  DD2 and I were supposed to trade off giving the cats their evening wet food.  I'd do it before I went to bed at 10, and she would do it after she got in from work at midnight.  She was always greeted by cats at the door, cats who had been fed but insisted that they were staaaaaaaaaaaarving!  And if she didn't remember whose turn it was, she fed them.  (They always had dry kibble down, so even if they hadn't been fed wet food, starvation was not imminent.)

We finally worked out a code.  If the light over the stove was on, she was to feed them.  If it was off, I'd fed them.

My boyfriends dog was like that. They just started leaving notes over her food cup.

I don't want to set a precedent, or she'll be after my dinner next!

Dear Butters,

How/why/when did you learn to squat and pee down the bathtub drain?

Curious,

Dear Louis,

It's a CPAP. It helps me sleep. It is not a scawy monster facehugger. Please do not kill it again.

Love,

Dear Butters -
   Do you teach seminars for felines to learn your awesome skills?

Sincerely,
The mama of two cats with occasional issues

Oh, believe me, I wish he would teach that trick to our other cat!
Now if only I could get him to turn on the hot water and rinse the drain out afterward..

Dear Harley,

Why have you suddenly begun table surfing? You are nearly 15 years old. Table surfing is not good for your health.

Love,

Mummy

Dear Mummy,

But it's FUN! And the look on your face is priceless. Did I mention it was fun?

With love,

Harley

Harley,

You would with the stealth merit badge if you didn't knock things down and make a ton of noise during your ascent to the table and eventual surfing.

Love,

Mummy

Dear Mouse,

I'm sure you did not understand and it was scary.  But did you have to cry the ENTIRE time we were gone to get you a microchip?  If you insist on getting outside, you get a chip.  Period.  But you did your best to break my and your dad's hearts with your scared crying.  Please try to not be such a wimp.

Dear Gizmo,

I know, stairs right? They're so awesome!! You can gallop up, and then down, and then up, and then down, and then halfway up, and then halfway down, and do a spin or two on the second landing and then back to the top and gallop to the bottom! Hours of entertainment! Why don't we have these at home?

Because you sound like a herd of buffalo on rollerskates and I'm really hoping you're going to get tired soon... please?

Regards,
