Dear cats, all three of you:

Yelling at me at the unpleasantly high volumes and pitches attainable by a Siamese mix, a half-grown kitten, and the living avatar of Basement Cat until I stop what I'm trying to do to pet you is highly disturbing.  Princess, your habit of climbing on my back if you can't sit in my lap is especially hampering, especially since you are apparently made of sandspurs.  I intended to catch up on my housekeeping tonight, but instead I spent it rotating between petting the three of you attention hogs.  I'm surprised I even got a load of laundry in!  The dog is sulking.

Love,

Your mother (to the boy kitties)/temple slave (for the Princess/evil kitty)

To my wonderful furbabies,

No, I can not turn off the big faucet in the sky so you can go outside*.  I know the sky is spitting water, and mommy can usually turn the water off, but I am unable to control the weather.  Please stop scratching at the cabinet door, sticking your head out and then running to me howling to let me know your head and paws are wet.  It should stop raining soon.  Until then, you will have to amuse yourselves with your 4 6' cat trees, 20' perches, enough cat toys to fill a decent sized toy chest, furniture positioned so you can see out of every window and food better than 33% of the world. 

Love,
The maker of Chicken

*They aren't actually allowed outside to roam.  We have a 6'x6'x10' dog run on the back porch which connects to a dog door on the back wall.  They go nuts if they can't get out to it.  There have been days I've opened the door to let them run into 3' of snow, just to get them to shut up.  It's highly entertaining except when I'm trying to work and they won't settle down and stop howling.

Dear Moose,

Stop eating the dog food.  Your cat food is arguably of much better quality due to the economic cost of buying premium food for three cats vs a giant dog.  Not that his isn't good grain-free food, but it's cheap premium and you guys get the really good stuff.  Not to mention, it puzzles the dog to find you in his food bowl.

Love,

Your quartermaster

Dear Darth, Stormy, and Lily,

The new noisy thing is here to stay.  His name is Nibbitz and you have a lot in common, like you are all cats.  I am aware that he is very noisy, and kind of an attention hog right now, but he will grow out of it (you all did).  So you can stop growling at him anytime now.


Dear Nibbitz,

Clawing my leg is not appreciated.  I am aware that the fat cats are growling at you, but climbing my leg is not a proper response.  Mostly because I am wearing shorts.

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.

You have pot plants in  your neighborhood?   ???

Dear Tribble,

Where were you the past couple of weeks?  No one responded to my signs nor did anyone put any up, and you're still wearing the collar I had on you so I doubt you were "visiting" with any humans.  I am glad you came back, but mystified about where you went.

In some places pot plant = house plant, because they're in pots.

Dear Rocky
  What happened?  You used to be such a polite little man who would sit and wait to be invited into a lap.  Now it's all "oooh open lap? MINE!" and will paw, climb and jump in without any regard to what I'm doing or working on.(or is I'm sitting in a position conducive to you large fluffy butt fitting in)

Dear Carmen,

Why are you suddenly hiding in the vanity in the bathroom?  The top of the cable box is the warmest spot in the apartment.

Must be the afternoon sun you're avoiding.  I don't blame you.

Love, She Who Buys You Fancy Feast.

Dear Rockie,

What is with you?  You LOVE attention and purr like crazy if you're on the bed or hanging out anywhere in the bathroom.  In fact, you sometimes purr violently to the point where I'm wondering if it can hurt you.  I listened to you purr to yourself for half an hour in the bathroom today after getting some pets.  But then practically anywhere else in the house, you want very little to do with us.  What's up with that?

And I can't help it that the cat makeup brush didn't smell right.  Please stop stealing mine!!!!

Dear Moose,

You are so cute most of the time.  You are not cute at all when you interrupt my efforts to get in the shower with love bites DIRECTLY ON MY SPRAINED ANKLE.  What exactly is wrong with you that you keep doing that? I thought I had broken that biting habit of yours last month...

Love,
Your injured mom.

Dear Sassy and Peggy:

Which one of you has suddenly decided to become bulimic?  I don't mind the empty food bowl; I can ignore your pitiful cries for more food but cleaning up 7 piles of yuk in 12 hours?  Not so much fun.

I hope you are feeling better,

Love, your slave.

Dear Sassy & Peggy,
We loooove leaving those piles for our feeder also!  The best are the ones next to the bed that she finds first thing in the morning!!  Our feeder usually switches our food (takes away anything seafood) and now that it is hairball season, the hairball helpers out there might be something your feeder could get you.
