I still think Nature's Miracle can save the feather blanket.  They way I see it, that blanket is headed for the trash.  So try it.  The worst that can happen is that the blanket still goes to the trash.

I've already tried - it only made it smell even worse, actually, probably because the feathers got wet. It's alright, I really did need an excuse to get a proper blanket shell and better feathers.

(ETA: I have given it another soaking with Nature's Miracle and I'll let it sit overnight. Mutter grumble cats...)

Try taking it to the dry cleaners and ask if they can have it washed - you'd be surprised at how big the commercial washing machines are.

That's not a bad idea, I'm just afraid I'd be charged an arm and a leg (if they'd even take it) for 1: oversize item, and 2: cat pee smell. It's...pretty vile. I can smell it a good ten feet away...  :-\

Dear Beankitty,

Yes the male-person-who-is-not-Mama and I are trying for a baby.  I promise we do NOT need your advice (you're spayed and a kitty virgin, so far as I know) and that we have got this handled.  Sitting at the foot of the bed and watching the entire event is creepy.  Holding up scorecards is just unnecessary.

Love,
Mama-Bean

The real Midnight Kitty would wait until .03 seconds after we finished, then squeeze in between us so she could wallow in all that lovin' feeling. :-*

Dear Mike,

No, no, no, NO!!  I don't how you figured out how to open up the medicine cabinet.  It has the kind of latch that you have to push in at the bottom of the door and then pull the door out to open.

But you did and I found most of the contents in the bathroom sink/bathroom and I am currently missing tweezers, eyeliner pencil, a small tube of travel size toothpaste, hair ties and a bottle of Zantac.  Since it is me that is getting ulcers from your thievery, I would hope that you could at least return the bottle of Zantac.

Love,

Dear Mittens,

When I yell, "Mittens, get off the kitchen counter!" I mean, you, Mittens. 

There is nobody else in the house named Mittens.

Dear Sassy:

I getting really tired of yelling, 'Sass, get down!'

Knock it off!

After cleaning out my Dad's house, I have this advice:  If you haven't used it in a year, throw it out!!!!.

Dear cats,

I'm glad you at least seem repentant for ruining my warm blanket, but really, I have plenty of blankets for situations such as this. I really don't need a cat on my feet, a cat on my head, and a cat trying to burrow into my side, just because I've had to layer thinner blankets instead of cocooning in a big puffy one.

It was quite comfortably warm, though.

With yawns,
the Not-Furry One, who really needs to go check on that warm blanket again.

Dear Dash,

I never thought I would be saying this, but thank you for throwing up politely.

Our dear departed Tigger used to hork while reversing around the living room so as to make the most mess possible. You, on the other hand, were kind enough this morning to stay in one spot so that I could get a piece of kitchen roll under you.

Just try not to eat the tinsel in future. It clearly doesn't agree with you.

Love,
she who provides the REAL cat food

Going off topic here, and not wanting to put a damper on the holiday spirit, but tinsel and cats do not mix well. For some reason, cats seem to love to eat tinsel. Tinsel can really mess up a cat's insides and cause serious harm. If you have cats, please consider getting all the tinsel out of your house right away. Ask your vet if you aren't sure.

In fact any long, thin, string-like object can be both tempting and dangerous to cats. Thread, dental floss, anything like that. If you see something dangling out of either end of your cat, call your vet. Even just trying to pull it out can make matters worse, depending on how long the string/tinsel is.

Please excuse this public service message.

Best beloved furry person

I know that you think you are watching your favourite programme EVER on a low level television, but actually you are watching the oven. If you intend to guard the turkey for a further four hours, I will step on your tail at intervals. I'm sorry but you are IN THE FREAKING WAY.

I promise, when I calculated how much turkey and ham and sausage-meat was required to feed seven people and one elderly cat, I did remember that your capacity matches that of the teenage boys. Now please stop putting your head inside the oven when I baste the bird, OK?

Love,
Your personal chef

Dear Mittens,

Great job on keeping up the fine old Mittens traditions! You do our name proud. Counter scaling is one of my favorite passtimes, especially if the un-furries happen to leave fuds on there for even a moment.

Do you also eat faster when you see the un-furries coming to shoo you away?

Love,

Mitten

Dear Mouse,

You are neutered.  You are over 10 years old.  Why in the WORLD did you spray my bathroom cabinets this morning when you have never done such a thing before?  Not cool dude.

Love,
Your exasperated mommy

Dear Mitten

I eat string faster when my non-furry housemate spots me, the strange thing is she insists on taking the string out of me and keeping it.  I'll never understand their ways.

Happy holidays, I hear there's good things to be had on the counter over the next few days.

Dear Fellow Felines of Ehell,

Alas, our hoomin (also known as the Killer of Cans) has placed the aforementioned counter goodies under these glass domes. We are sadly contemplating if there is any way to get into them, but despite Amara's best attempts to move them the domes won't budge. All we can do is surround them and stare. (They appear immune to that too. Oh, woe is us!)

Then there is the tree. Not only is it not a real one--goodness knows Athena did her repeated best to chew the branches--but there is no tinsel. What a sad, sad holiday.

Please send via overnight express any goodies that might be even slightly edible you find and can share. Merry Christmas!

Aprodite, Athena, Amara
