Dear Magic,

What was with the meowing in my face at 1:30 in the morning?

Love,

Dear Roxie,

AGAIN with the bounce dryer sheets?  How are you finding these when I keep taking them away from you?  Are you somehow digging through the trash?  These are not toys and you should not be chewing on them.  Please stop giving me dirty looks and cries when I take one away from you.

Love,
The one who gives you treats (NOT bounce!)

Dear kittycat,

I love that you love me so much. I really do. But when I'm doing yoga, I don't need you to help me. Those poses when I'm lying on the floor are not meant to be done with you draped around my head and purring in my ear. And when I lift my head off the floor, I do not want to find you in the way when I lower it. Just stick to showing off how much more limber you are than I am, and leave the sweaty stuff to me.
My cat, Buddy, and my dog, Honey Girl, help me with my physical therapy stretches and exercises.  It adds a level of difficulty to do the abdominal lifts with a purring 9+ pound cat laying on my chest.  When I do my leg lifts, Honey Girl is under my leg when I lower it.

I don't discourage them.  It's more fun with their "help."

Do not bring birds into the house, alive or dead, <snip>
Many, many years ago, I lived in a typical suburban single family house with 3 cats.  As is typical for California, we were having another drought year and the mice and bugs were fleeing the fields and coming inside to find water.  Good hunting for bored kitties.  I don't know which cat brought the squirrel inside (they had a cat door) only to let it go.  The 3 of them apparently tortured that poor squirrel for hours.  The bottom 2-3 feet of the walls had bloody streaks in almost every room.  It looked like someone had filmed one of those ghastly slasher/horror movies (which I cannot watch) in my home.

Dear Duchess,

Can i please have some privacy in the bathroom?  Your caterwauling outside the door was just a bit too much.


Dear Mr.  Kitty,

I know you really, really, really want those table scraps, but I'm disinclined t share with someone whose claws are embedded in my leg.

And as for you, Redford dear, I know you're tall enough to reach the table top with your front paws while standing on your back paws, but I'd really prefer it if you would keep those front paws off the table.

Dear Matilda,

It is very lovely that after all these years you have finally decided to become a lap cat. Unfortunately, you then object trenously to being made a not-lap cat, to the point that through my jeans my legs are bleeding.  This does not encourage me to let you back on my lap next time.

Trying to stand up should not be ane extreme sport.

Regards,
Mum.

P.S. I know we call you ninja but I don't actually know how you got on my lap in the first place this time. It appears to be the stealth sneak-under-armpit manoveur, but we've yet to catch you at it. Its more we just look down and suddenly there's cat!

Dear Duchess,

I know it's springtime and you have lots of energy, but it is it rally necessary to run through the entire house, up and down the stairs, over and over again?

Dear Oscar

I do love autumn and the colder weather!  I get a very fluffy, snuggly kitty for the next 5 months. :D

Love
Mum

Dear feral kitty,

Was my dryer really the best place you could come up with to have your kittens?

Thank you,

Do you have a cat magnet embedded in your house?

I ask myself this question every day.  You would think the massive dog that has free reign over my back yard and the back porch including the laundry room would dissuade the kittehs, but no.

Dear Sophie,

We all know you are Destructo-Kitten 5000. However, you've been doing a remarkable job of keeping those tendencies under wraps lately. So why did I wake up to find a strip of red carpet from the basement in my hallway this morning? You need to behave yourself until my bathroom's fixed and we can put the basement door back up, or I'm going to have to start locking you up here at night, and you will not like that, mark my words.

...Where did you even find that kind of carpet, anyway?

Quite befuddled,
the Not-Furry One.

Dear kittens,

Especially you, Coffee Bean.   Epic 4-kitten games of chase should not be conducted while Mommy is trying to sleep.  The bed where Mommy is sleeping should not be included in the course.  Attacking the bedmice and running over Mommy's head with claws slightly out should also definitely not be happening.  You guys sound more like a herd of stampeding elephants than kittens have any right to.

Love,
Human who was trying to sleep this morning.

Dear Mocha,

One week from tomorrow you will be one year old. That means we do not buy any more kitten food. You will have plenty of grown up cat food, treats and other items to eat.

I did appreciate all the attention I received when I came home, until I realized it was all geared toward a refill of the kitten food dish. You are too cute.

Love,

mom
