LOL.  Yes, they did leave most of their presents on mats, rather than the hardwood.  But at least the mats can get thrown in the washer every once in a while.
After cleaning out my Dad's house, I have this advice:  If you haven't used it in a year, throw it out!!!!.

Dear Oscar

I am so sorry you had to go in for surgery yesterday to remove the lump from your side but you came through it well, the vet said you behaved very nicely and didn't need the 'Cone of Shame' as you had left the stitches alone all afternoon.... so why (WHY?) did you suddenly decide, at the time the vet closed, to pull out two stitches?!?!?  I had put a photo of you up on Facebook saying you were very brave - now you have to live with the second photo that everyone is laughing at!

 

Love - she who wasn't laughing when you ate dinner (honest!) ;)

awww...the cone of shame!!!   My cat had to wear one after ear surgery and he got under the bed and got stuck.  We had to carefully take the bed apart to get him out!

Dear Buddy;

We know you are a friendly cat and just want to playplayplay, but please watch those pointy bits.  We love the way you play at first, batting with soft paws and no claws, so we know you can control yourself.  Then you go all teenage boy on us (he's 9 months) and get rowdy, biting ankles and Honey Girl's nose.  Honey Girl* is going to be your best friend and playmate if you keep your pointy bits to yourself.

Your loyal servant

*Honey Girl is the 4 y.o. terrier/dachshund mix we brought home with Buddy from the humane society last Friday.

Dear Buddy;

You are such a lover, so gentle and affectionate.  Why do you change in a split second into Killer Kitty?  One moment you are flopping down on my feet like a Ragdoll and the next moment you are biting my ankle.  DH says you are trying to bring down the "big game" (us).  When attacking our ankles doesn't work, you try to trip us up.  I guess you figure once we're down on the floor, it will be easier to finish us off.  Trust me, tripping my disabled DH will not end well for either of you.

Oh, and one last thing - Please do not jump in my lap when I am sitting on the *throne.*  I don't need your help in the bathroom.  I know you need a lot of love, but I need a little bit of privacy.

Your loyal servant

Dear Figaro,

You are one of the handsomest cats I've ever known and the most handsome cat I've ever had.  Why, therefore, do you not want me to take your picture?  I didn't get a single good shot of you this afternoon.

While we're at it, I know you like to be brushed.  I ran that wire thing on you, cleared it 20 times, and you are still shedding.  Why don't you turn over on your left side so I can get your right side, too?

Love,

She Who Buys You Fancy Feast.

We think Buddy is quite handsome, too.  He is true black with a few white hairs in his ears.  I can't get a good picture of him because my camera can't find anything to focus on.  He was laying on Honey Girl's black towel, chewing on her rawhide bone.  When I aimed the camera at him, the little red box kept trying to find a "face" without success.  He doesn't show up any better on the black chairs.  In fact, we keep sitting on him because, with his eyes shut, he disappears on the chair.  When I finally got one good picture of him asleep on the bamboo flooring, the second photo (half a second later) shows only a close up of his nose. ;D

Figaro usually turns his head just as I depress the shutter.  The best I did today was a couple of profile shots.

Dear kitties, all of you, including the stray kitties that I don't own:

I am not sure I like this parade following me to the mailbox and the neighbor's house.  I look like a very strange Mama Duck or Pied Piper.

Love,

Your food-enabler.

Along the same lines:

Dear Domino,

The camera will not steal your soul.  You don't need to run out of the room as soon as I turn it on.

Sincerely,
The would-be photographer

Dear cats (I don't quite know which of you is guilty so I will address you all) :
    Those clothes I set out before I went in the shower?  They weren't a lovely bed.  For once can I walk out of the house without wearing half of you guys all over me????

Dear kittens :
     I am so happy you are weaning from Momma cat and are starting to eat the baby nummies, but because you have discovered solids doesn't mean you are allowed to get up and steal DD's pork chop tonight.  I can't even figure out how 2lb kittens got up on the table but that is a big no no!  And the Birthday cake I caught you licking?  Major tummy ache.  Please eat the baby nummies instead!

Signed,
Your fur covered servant
