Good evening Joker,

There appear to be some discrepancies in our understanding of the purpose of this shallow depression in an elevated surface.



Please do not make me demonstrate the purpose of said depression to you.

Thank you,

The management.

I washed my hands in the kitchen sink instead  :-X

Dear Joker:

Are you my long-lost brother?  We seem to have an affinity for strange containers:



Purrs and head-bumps,

Carmen
Joker's whiskers are ridiculously long.

My Bootsie was a Tuxedo, too, and she loved the sink.  I don't have a photo sharing account on line, but she looks just like Carmen except Bootsie's nose was black.  The white cheeks and bib formed a heart when she looked up a me. :-*

Amendment to the previous letter to Joker:

No, Joker, you may not has my hairbrush while you lay in the sink.  Even if you are a dapper kitten.



Penguin, you are cute, and I do like holding you on my lap, but lying in wait across the back of the toilet seat is a bit much.



BatKittens, your occupation of the laundry basket is probably pretty normal.  The occupation of the shower (not pictured, for that kitten woke up and ended up around my ankles while I photographed the others) is not.  The destruction of my second new shower curtain in a month was not appreciated either.



In other words, kittens, may I please use the bathroom sometime soon?

Love,

The hoomin.

Dear Lily,

I'm glad you've found the most comfortable portion of my bed to sleep on. I'm also very well aware that it's getting colder at night, that's why me and my malfunctioning ability to warm up have dug out the Floofy Feather Blanket.

But do you really have to plop yourself down where my feet go and knead yourself a nice comfortable warm nest so I can't even get under the blankets without disturbing you, much less stretch out?

At least it's not my body pillow again, and now I've said that I'm sure you're going to go right back to conquering it too. I'm surprised you haven't already. All the feathers are there.

Dear Sophie,

Yes, I'm VERY well aware I injured your dignity by putting hairball goo on your paw. You really don't need to keep on giving me wounded looks and shaking your paw about to remind me what I've done. That's what you get for horking so hard you sounded like you were going to turn yourself inside out and producing absolutely nothing to show for it. I think you woke the dog with all that racket.

Dear Rika,

You cannot have the lap if you insist on digging your claws happily into my kneecap. I'd wonder why you only do that when I'm wearing long pants, but then I remember a perforated knee is not my favorite thing in the world, and if you've GOT to do it, I'd rather you did it when there's a layer of fabric between you and me.

Dear Branwen,

Get up and get a job, you lazy bum. ;)

Love,
The Not-Furry One.

(
Lily conquering the blanket. She got quite irate that I'd made the bed just before then and ruined her previous little nest.)

Aloha Buddy;

Please stop jumping up in the middle of the table when I serve dinner.  I did not want to eat it after picking it, and the plate, off the floor.  I know the dog likes to clean the floor after meals and I suspect the two of you conspired to get my dinner on your floor.

Another thing: You are a cat; Honey Girl is a dog.  I know you two love each other and compete for our attention, but now you're copying her doggie behavior.  Jumping in DH's lap, putting your front paws on his chest, and licking his face is not something cats do.  Please stop with the species confusion.

Mahalo,
The Furless One

p.s. All toys now belong to "the kids."  They chase the fishing pole lures together.  They race each other when playing fetch.  They toss rawhide chips (& other small toys) in the air and jump on them - together.  They chase each other through the cat tunnel.  The biggest problem is that Honey Girl is part Terrier and she can destroy a catnip stuffed mouse in less than 60 seconds.  As we say, "tear" is the root of Terrier.  ;D

And here I thought terrier was spelled with an o in place of the ie.
After cleaning out my Dad's house, I have this advice:  If you haven't used it in a year, throw it out!!!!.

Honey Girl is a rescue, so her breeding is not certain.  The Humane Society told us the owner who surrendered her (and her 3 puppies and the puppies' papa) said she was a 5 y.o. terrier mix.  Our vet said she was between 2 y.o. and 2-1/2 y.o. and a dachshund mix.  We call her a Terrier/Dachshund mix who is now 3 y.o.  We think the former owners did not want to admit they bred her so young.  When she's "on a tear," we say "she is channeling her inner Terriorist."

My Dearest Cherokee,

I realize that you love me and that the bath salts smell AMAZING, but I left the bathroom door open during the bath so you would feel less alone, not so you can nibble my hand. However, I do thank you for being gentle in your love nips, because they didn't hurt too badly. See you soon.

Love,
The other girl in his life.

Dear Batkitten(s?)

I'm not sure if it's just one of you doing it or both of you, but how did you figure out how to drink from the faucet?  I've never, ever owned a cat that did that.  It would be a lot cuter if you didn't land on the bathroom counter like an anvil when I'm getting ready for work in the morning - I am using those things on there, which you send flying.

Love,

Your puzzled human.

Dear Sister Whistle,
You are our oldest feral cat and we love you.  Lately, even when there is still food outside in your dish, you come to the door meowing or scratching.  When I look out the window you look up at me and make little soft sounds, like you want my company or something.  Or maybe just extra attention.  So this morning, in response, I gave you some special treats in your dish.  You picked them out of the other food and ate every one.  I love you, whistle.  You make my heart feel warm. 
Love,
Mommie

Dear Mommie,

I may be an official feral, but I am getting older (as you noted). Therefore, I reserve the right to change my status from feral to spoiled housecat at my discretion. And to accept your lap (in due course, of course). The food is good, but I am thinking that coming inside might just be better. What do you think?

Love,
Sister Whistle

Dear Gretchen,

Tell your Humans that if you must have the despicable b-a-t-h (shudder), then they should use Palmolive Baby shampoo or, strangely enough, Dawn blue washing liquid. Fleas can't handle either of them. Our Humans give us a nice warm bath with the baby shampoo, then a good scrubbing rinse in eucalyptus oil (10ml to 1lt water).

We come out nice and clean, smelling all fresh, and very flea free. It also gives us nice shiny coats and makes us happy hounds as we scritch less when we don't have any hitch-hikers.

Good news! Your insurance company says they'll cover you. Unfortunately, they also say it will be with dirt.

Dear Demon Twins and Gretchen,

Our human hasn't tested it yet, but we accidentally spilled an entire pound of bread yeast all over the floor and rolled in it tracked it all over the house before our human came home from work, and the flea infestation she was struggling with just...vanished.

Love,

The Batkittens, Princess, Tribble, Moose, and The Mama Cat, and Rocky the Dog.

The bath has been given.  All human limbs are accounted for.  Human skin is still intact.

Feline dignity was still ruffled.

Did you have someone helping you pin down the cat as you scrubbed? Because if not.... I would like to know your secret please.
