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.
‘All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing’  attributed to Edmund Burke 1729-1797

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

I'm loving the recent posts and recognising Oscar in a couple of them (he lives to 'surf' the bathmat when I'm in the shower and galumphs across the bed with a wired look on his face).

Dear Oscar

I know I call you my little man, but you're not really little are you?  I'm so sorry I laughed when you made a break for it and discovered you couldn't get your bulk through the wrought iron gates but the sudden screeching halt was hilarious (and I did check afterwards to make sure everything was still in its rightful place on your face).  Again, and for the record, you are an inside cat - you have always been an inside cat - you have a predilication for lying in front of the glass doors and sunning your butt - you are a floofy indoor cat who couldn't cope with the mean outdoors.  Stop trying to escape!!!

Love
She who sets the bathmat up closer to the door than the wall so that you get a longer skid...

Dear Princess,

I closed the bedroom door for a reason.  That reason being that when you were granted the privilege of bedroom access, you spent the night attempting to take over my pillow, and when that failed, you switched to sleeping on my head.  As I have a natural dislike for the sensation of suffocating, that is simply unacceptable.  Additionally, you kept waking me up when you hissed at the Moose.  He was mostly just laying there asleep, and looked rather puzzled at your belligerence. 

Love,
The actual owner of the bed.

Dear actual owner of the bed toiler of tasks and feline slave:

Obviously my generosity in allowing you to occupy a good amount of bed space is a wasted idea. You are getting too big for your britches as Grandma Princess would say. Still, she did teach me that hoomans are good for certain things and therefore we must humor them. So in honor of her memory, I will allow you to remain in bed with me as long as you understand which corner of the bed you (and Moose) are permitted to occupy. And that is: Any corner I don't want!

Bwahahaha. Prepare to curl up or enjoy the furry suffocation!

Love,

Princess and Ruler of the Bed
