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

Dearest Lucy and Cannella:

That was my stomach that growled... No Lucy, it was not the ~8 month old adopted kitten challenging you for rights to the bed; and no, Cannella, it was not the 3 year old resident cat giving you hell for daring to place paw on said bed...

I missed my supper because I was too fascinated by your interactions while adjusting to this big change - lesson learned.

But I know this will all be old news to the two of you soon, so I'm secretly cherishing these fascinating times...

Thanks for both joining me on the couch tonight -  a sign post that acceptance is nearing.

I love you both,
Lap Lady

Dear kitties, again, all of you,

It was nice outside last night.  A great night to open my window.  I couldn't hardly sleep because you idiots kept going in and out the window and bouncing on me.  Princess, you are a causer of massive pain, as you kept trying to stretch out using my injured ankle as an anchor, and you kept trying to sleep on my head.  I could feel my eyes start swelling shut last night due to your presence on my pillow - having cat hair introduced directly to my eyes will do that.

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.

If it makes you feel any better, the strays at the convenience store I frequent appear out of nowhere the second I pull into the parking lot.  I feel guilty and give them ear scritchies every time I go in and out, but I swear they know the sound of my engine and come running when they hear it.  The owner of the store does the TNR thing with the ferals and strays in the area, and this area is a popular "dumping ground" for unwanted pets, so there are quite a lot of the kitties.
Some people lift weights.  I lift measures.  It's a far more esoteric workout. - (Quoted from a personal friend)

Dear Kitten,

I know you really want to explore the world.  I know you thought you had us fooled by getting out of the 6'x10'x6' dog pen Mommy got for you so you could still go outside but not roam the neighborhood.  However, Mommy and Daddy are not as stupid as you think and you were caught scaling the inside corner of the cage like a tree.  Do not look so forlorn.  It's just a tarp over the top so you can not escape.  Daddy will be putting chicken wire over the top tonight so you can once again see the sky.  If only you would have let me leash train you...then you really could go explore the world.

Love,
The giver of chicken

Dear newly brought-in kitten overlord:

So far, you have sent two text messages, several FaceBook IMs, made a phone call, posted to FaceBook, and posted your own introductory post here.  I mean, I walked out of the room in the middle of composing it, and came back in to find that a line of keysmash got added and it was posted.  Perhaps you're actually some kind of alien and are trying to communicate?  You were, might I add, brought in only after your mama cat came in my window and did her best "Timmy fell in the well!" impression to alert me that you were stuck in the roof.

Love,

Your new human slave

I personally ascribe to the theory that kittens are furry little chaos elementals. Cute little chaos elementals, but chaos elementals none the less.

I have 2 foster babies (and their evil feral mom) who were born April 6 (5 littler mates died  :'( :'( )  and they are just insane!!!!  It has been 3 years since I have had a kitten and I had forgotten what little balls of energy and destruction (quit climbing the recliner!!!) they are!

Dear Isis,

Yes, Daddy is mad at you and refusing to talk to you. I know you didn't spill red wine all over his laptop on purpose but he holds a grudge better than anyone I know (it's those Scottish roots) so please try and leave him alone for a few days. Smooching up to him while he's trying to fix said laptop is not the best idea at the moment

Love Mummy.

Dear Mitten,

We seriously need to have a talk. I know you hate it when people touch you for an instant longer than you want to be touched. However, when you choose to sit on my lap, you do not get to be upset that my lap is still touching you back. The onus is on you to move your fuzzy butt off of  me, not expect me to somehow magically teleport out from under you without disturbing you.

Love,

Your greatly exasperated mum

Dear Mama Cat:

I think you successfully shaved a few years off my life when you returned with the rest of your litter in tow and the one kitten in my room magically turned into FOUR kittens in my room.  Thank you for bringing them in from outside, I guess?  I think I need to buy more cat food...


The babysitter, who promises cute kitten pics later after the new ones stop skittering off when I move.

Dear Cannella ~

I don't think Lucy meant it to be a game of tag; I think she chased you under the dresser/bed/chair to tell you to give her space..

Still, I have to admire your tenacity in insisting on tagging her "It", again and again.  But don't come crying to m-

Oh alright, here's my lap.

Dear Lucy ~

Just between us, I am so on to you... I see that twinkle in your eye, giving away that you actually *are* enjoying having someone to chase...

I notice you purr away the nights, seemingly more content than ever..

I won't tell the little one, though.  Pinkie/paw swear.
