Dear Pipsqueak,

I know you used to sleep with your head between the porch rails. You were smaller back then. If you get your head stuck one more time, I'm not going to come save you.

Love, Mom

Leo - you are a kitten.  As far as I know, you were abandoned.  How do you already know how to stretch your body out to take over half the bed?  And no, you should NOT sleep right next to your human dad with your paws or head resting on his back - he flips and turns a lot during the night and you are going to get squished.

Dear cat,

yes, I know I can make it rain inside. It's called a shower. That doesn't mean I'm responsible when it rains outside! Don't rant at me when you come inside with wet fur, it's not my fault.

Yes it is. Don't you know you are meant to turn the water off!  ;D

It is ALSO your fault when the patch of sunlight in which the cat was sleeping moves away and even disappears.

Dear Gizmo,

Last night when I went out to unlock the gate for the bad man you zipped between my ankles and took off into the garden. After a merry fifteen minute chase (in the freezing cold) I finally cornered you in a pot plant and got you inside.

THIS MORNING, I came down and opened up the outside door so you could go sit outside in the sunshine and you took one look and went 'Uck, fresh air, don't want' and took yourself upstairs.

I know you only like outside when it's cold and dark and I'm going to have to chase you around (because we live behind the pub and Friday night is not a good time for kitties to be wandering about) but surely we can come to some kind of agreement about this?

And don't even think about whipping outside when I'm about to leave for lunch. I'm not chasing you in heels.

 Dear Salem

You're weird.  There's no other way to say it, dear.

I love that you're a lapcat, and I adore the way you roll around, loll, squirm and wriggle, paws everywhere when you're getting scritches.  But seriously...  the ears were back, the eyes were slitted and fangs were showing.  You were even lashing your tail.  It looked for all the world like you were planning to eat my face.  Meanwhile you were purring up a storm.

Please sort out the kitty body language thing, honey.  Otherwise you'll confuse anyone that doesn't know you as well as I do.  That 'demonic black cat' look was freaky!

Love
Mum

Dear Peggy:

Why do you growl when my 'Mr. Fixit' comes to the door?  And why do you hide when he comes inside?  He's a nice guy.  Really!  Your sister follows him around, making a pest out of herself, so I guess it's not all bad that you are out of his hair.  But really, he isn't going to hurt you.
After cleaning out my Dad's house, I have this advice:  If you haven't used it in a year, throw it out!!!!.

Dear Roxie,

I understand that you were abandoned or lost and probably didn't get enough food at one point in your kittenhood.  But you have been here for months now and do not lack for food.  So why do you insist on trying to eat my makeup brushes?  I have to take them back from you every morning when you grab them out of my purse.  It's really not good for you and no, I'm not getting you your own, even if you are the only girl kitty in the house.

Dear Harley and Mischief,

I know you were annoyed by the maintenance staff yesterday, but they had to come and sort out the broken air conditioner.

However, that does not mean the steak the humans had for dinner is yours. You do not need to stand on it, on top of the cutting board, on the table!

Sigh,

Mom

So why do you insist on trying to eat my makeup brushes?
When the real Midnight was alive, she was "highly interactive." Whatever we were doing, Midnight had to supervise &/or help.  She loved to curl up in the top cover of my makeup case while I applied my makeup.  She was investigating the brushes and somehow ended up with bronzer on her cute little nose. Talk about gilding the lily. DH told her that she's a natural beauty and doesn't need to wear makeup. ;D

He did and he does, but I know he lies because I have a mirror.  He would prefer that I never wear any makeup and I prefer to look "finished."  For our anniversary one year, I came home from work, took a shower and washed my face clean, put on a nice dress, and he took me out to a fancy restaurant for dinner.  It wasn't easy for me to go out in public with a *naked* face, especially in a fancy restaurant, but that was my gift to him. :-*

Dear Roxie,
    Our mommy just saw a makeup brush toy at PetSmart - http://www.petsmart.com/product/index.jsp?productId=12143717 - is that what you're trying to ask your mommy to get you?

Love!

Dear Dorsey and Dizzy,

I have cried to mommy that is exactly what I want, but she is complaining that she is tired and doesn't want to go out again.  I will wear her down with my cuteness (and cries).
