Dear Kittens,

1) Please don't trap the dog in the hallway.  No, you're (probably) not doing it on purpose, but he is pretty pathetic.  You guys are still smaller than his head.

2) Please stop trying to trap me.  Just because a foot hits the floor in front of  you does not mean that you need to sit on it.  I really need  to stop petting you guys and reinforcing the behavior when you do that, but you're just way too cute.  Likewise, wrapping yourself around my ankle does not actually do anything to keep me from moving.

3) Penguin, you especially need to not use cute as a weapon.  Let your older brother, the aptly-named Moose, eat.  Do not go up to him while he's eating, stick your head under his chin, and then headbutt him until he gets irritated and leaves, just so that you can then eat.  There is plenty of space on all sides of that food bowl.


Love,

The babysitter

Dear Branwen,

...I'm sorry. Really. But that is about the most unattractive thing I've ever caught you on camera doing, and I couldn't keep myself from having an explosive fit of cough-laughing. Forgive me. I'll give you extra treats.

Love, no, really,
The Not-Furry One.

Dear Smudge, Rocky, Patch, Carrie, Kamen and Penny,
    Yes the patio has been safely enclosed and soon as we figure out how, there will be a cat flap to allow you easy access(turns out my back door is plated so can't simply install a flap there)

Dear Gizmo,

Well no-one could ever accuse you of being short on brains, and you came up with quite an effective little scheme during the week I was away. It wasn't until I got back and we all started comparing notes that we realized you had spent all week demanding your customary can from Grandpa in the morning, and then playing the 'I'm perishing of starvation' card when Grandma came home from work... In fact on several days you even managed to bamboozle Grandpa into giving you a THIRD can as a late night/pre-bedtime snack because he thought from the pitiful miaowing that Grandma forgot to give you dinner.

Of course the jig was up the second I got home and tried to pick you up fat-boy... I hope you enjoyed your visit with Grandma and Grandpa because when we get home you're going on half rations and we're getting you a tiny treadmill or I, as the primary caregiver, will be getting a stern talking to from the vet on your next visit...

Don't worry, you can still have all the Science Diet you want...

Love

Me.

Dear Feral cats,*

     I love all of you, I really do which is the reason I provide food, shelter, and medical care (I know the 'nip & tucks' have been traumatic) but for goodness sakes, did you guys send out a flyer?  Everyday I have a new kitty show up ! Between you guys and the house cats, I have gone through over 40lbs of food in a week!  I do love you all though, and thanks to a few of you for showing me the love back and letting me finally give you some ear skritches.  If you keep letting me socialize you, you will get a nice warm home off the streets !

Love,
The lady with the ever present cups of kibble

* Right now it is Lilliput, Tulip, Daffodil, Moe, Big Head, Grayson, Gandolf, Casper, Starvin Marvin, and 2 new ones who are still unnamed!

Dear Roxie,

You are small and adorable and have the cutest meow which is why you get away with anything.  However, waking me up 4 times during the night, apparently overjoyed to find a person to knead on and purr at every hour or two, is not going to work for me.  Yes, you are sweet and cute the first time but mommy needs SLEEP!  Keep it up and you're sleeping outside.

Dear Peggy, the likely culprit, and Sassy, the less likely culprit:

Stay out of my food!  That bag of Tostitos scoops were for my camping trip with many other people!  And I don't have time to go get another bag.  I'll have to eat that bag myself and for anyone else who doesn't care if there might be cat germs in there.

Are you related to the raccoons who broke into friend's car last year and ate all the tortilla chips?

Not so much love,
Me

(We were camping; friend left one window down about 3 inches.  Next morning, evidence that the coons had been in the car and ransacked the food.  We think a little one got in and dropped stuff out to the bigger ones who wouldn't fit.  At leas the was relatively tidy about it - the only scat was on one bag that was thrown out and the rest of the car was clean.  Except for the crumbs.)
After cleaning out my Dad's house, I have this advice:  If you haven't used it in a year, throw it out!!!!.

It was, when I left the house yesterday morning, a 1lb bag of bread yeast.

I gather from the yeast-angels the kittens left that it was loads of fun!

Dear Mew and Old Man,

The comfy chair is MINE! I  know you like the nice padded microfiber chair in the office, but you can't have it.  There are plenty of other perches, chairs, and places to lay in the office that are just as nice.

Dear Xena:

You're a very sweet kitty, and I know you love to get pets and neck scritches while I'm getting dressed in the morning. But was it REALLY necessary to, while rolling around on the bed turning your belly up and being cute, roll yourself right off the end of the bed and leave three parallel scratches from thigh to shin down my leg? Granted, they're shallow enough to not bleed or hurt much.

But still, please be more aware of where you are on the bed in future.

Thank you,

Not-Furry Provider of Treats and Scritches
