She's a tuxedo but I'm convinced she has some meezer in her. She's very vocal and has the meezer attitude.  Boy, does she have the meezer attitude  ::).  She's on a premium food but I might ask about it the next time I hit the pet store.
After cleaning out my Dad's house, I have this advice:  If you haven't used it in a year, throw it out!!!!.

If you're in the US and she's a "domestic shorthair," the chances she has some Siamese ancestry are, as I understand it, pretty good. Back in the 20s, Siamese cats were extremely popular, and so they interbred heavily with the "regular" cat population.

I've heard that tuxies tend to have Siamese in them.  This makes sense for the tuxies I've known (n=2)

Dear BeanKitty (Lucy),

Your job in the winter is to snuggle under the covers with me and keep me warm.  Do not listen to Not-the-Mama.  Sleeping with cats snuggled up to your chest like a teddy bear is neither weird nor unhygienic.

Love,
Mama

Dear Free Range Hippy Cat,

If The Man is still in bed with you at lunchtime, it means that he is either working nightshift, or sick. Either way, it is not polite to wake him up on purpose, just to tell him that you would like some lunch. Come downstairs and talk to me about it. I have chicken, I have tuna, I have an opposable thumb, and I'm always the one to give you lunch. Why are you asking him?

Love
FRHChick

Dear Ulysses Basset Hound,

When you had your strokes between Christmas & New Years, I thought you were a goner.  I was wrong.

You're now blind and can't hear as well as you did, but you're doing just fine.  I DO suspect you're milking the situation, but you're a basset - what else should I expect?

You turn 13 in April.  I hope you're with us for another few years.

Love,
Mom

Dear Renfield,

The potato chips are NOT going to suffocate in the plastic bag.  You do not need to tear holes in the bag to save them.  I would almost appreciate it if you ate some chips after destroying their bag, and then the ziploc that I put them into next.  Then you would have been going after the chips, rather than apparently just destroying the bag(s) for no apparent reason.  I put the second ziploc of chips in the cabinet, so I can be taught.

Dear tiny little Coffee Bean,

Why do you ignore fish and shrimp but go bat-guano crazy when the smell of lobster wafts by your little nose?  You went all crazy and bite-y on me!  You immediately resumed being your normal cuddly adorable self when the lobster was all eaten (by me, not you!) and removed from the room.

Love,

Human mama, who unlike cat mama, still feeds you.

Dear Sophie,

I'm starting to get worried about your flashes of brilliance. I am, however, terribly impressed that you've figured out how to get more use out of your puzzle toy by dropping your mylar foil balls into it. What's next, shoving toy mice in there to frustrate your sisters when they can't get them back out?

Actually, knowing you, you WILL.

Very glad you don't have opposable thumbs,
the Not-Furry One.

Dear Liliane,

Our cat, Buddy, also likes to combine toys.  He'll put his catnip mouse in Mommy's Crocs because it's fun to play with it in them.  Previously, the Real Midnight Kitty enjoyed creating toy combinations.  She was very dexterous for a cat.  She was able to rotate her claw around to pick up a ball of crumpled paper single-handedpawed.  We joked that Midnight ruled the roost because we all know that if cats had opposable thumbs they would rule the world.

Midnight was exquisitely beautiful and very clever.  Buddy is handsome, but dim. He lets the dog run the show. Heck, he even gives his catnip mouse to Honey Girl.  Not a good idea: Honey Girl is a Foxy Doxy (fox terrier/dachshund mix) and she can destroy a catnip mouse in less than 60 seconds. ;D

Sincerely,
The Zoo Keeper

Dear Sophie,

I'm glad you can entertain yourself. No, really, I am. But when entertaining yourself involves these steps:

1: find favorite mini tennis ball
2: drop favorite mini tennis ball down stairs and gleefully watch it THUMP down every stair
3: run down stairs at full speed to retrieve ball
4: repeat 2 and 3

...it gets a little annoying. Especially at 3 AM when people are trying to SLEEP. Can't you just go back to hiding toy mice under my bed or something? :P

Scritches,
the Not-Furry One.

PS: Yes, that new litter pan is nearly three feet long and holds thirty pounds of litter. Let's see you move THAT away from the wall.

Dear Coffee Bean,

Since this is the view I'm often presented with while surfing, and often enough, while I'm sleeping:



Can you please stop farting?  You are an extraordinarily gassy kitten!

Love,

Your mattress.

Fred,

While I am delighted that you think I can do anything, the truth is, I can't.

So all the meowing and pleading eyes in the world will not make it warm outside, or clear the screen porch from the icy snow.

Mocha,

You are adorable. Even at 9 months old. Even your snoring is adorable. And your growling at toys is as well.

But why were you stalking the cable repair man? Poor guy, you were going to attack him. You are supposed to be scared of strangers!  ???

Love, mom
