Also, dear Nelson-kitty,

What do you find so enticing about the forbidden garage of mystery?

Because it is forbidden.

Dear Immy,

When you are asleep and making an adorable face, please stay asleep until I can get a photo of you.

sincerely,
Your human

I can attest to that. Closed doors are anathema to Ash.

Yes, but any time you move to get the camera or phone, there will very likely be something very important happening so we must be watching at all times!

Seriously though, cat naps are probably more alert than humans are when they are fully awake.

Dear Gobi-I know you like milk, but please stop horning in on my cereal bowl while I'm trying to eat from it!

Dear Big Baby Boss,

I just renewed your license. You'll be street-legal for another year!

Love,
Daddy

It's not just that he wants the door opened, though. Whenever the door is open he makes a run for it and tries to go in the garage. I have to keep an eye on him whenever I open that door.

Of course. The reason The Door Must Open To The Cat is so that The Cat can go through it.

Having gone through it, The Cat is extremely likely to want to come right back through it in the other direction. Especially if a human has shut the door again.

For that matter, I've more than once had a cat just sit down in the doorway.


-- He probably wants to properly explore the garage, to make sure there are no Strange Cats or other dangerous creatures hanging out there, and to check out all the potential hiding places and all the potential nice snoozing spots (some of which will be identical.) Cats don't like having an unknown area in what they consider part of their territory; it might be dangerous.

Of course, once he got it explored he might well still want to go out there, to make sure nothing's changed, and/or to hang out in one of those Cat Spots if he'd identified some such.

Dear Nelson,

Yes, that’s exactly why the garage is forbidden—it might be dangerous. Okay, I know you’re not going to get past the childproof cap on a bottle of antifreeze or anything, with no opposable thumbs and all, but there’s still stuff like paint and such in there that might be bad for you. Also it’s not heated so I don’t want to leave the door open so you can come back in when you’re ready.

Dear dad,

So fix it. Duh.

Dearest Ms. B --

I am an omnivore. You are an obligate carnivore. This means that there WILL be things that I eat that you will not want to eat. I acknowledge that my food must be shared with you and I quite willingly shared my roast beef sandwich with you yesterday (thank you for letting me have the bun, lettuce, and part of the cheese.) But today, I had peanut butter and jam. You do not eat peanut butter, jam, or crackers. Meowling and insistently tapping me on my leg will not change the food I am eating and that you have already inspected and didn't want. It will stay plant based food, not meat.

I promise, that sometime tomorrow I will eat a meat based meal, so will you forgive me?

All my love and devotion,

Your Human

And as an addition:

No, Cat With The Loud Purr, you do not want a drink of very hot tea!

-- you probably don't even want a drink of cold tea. But you certainly don't want it while it's still barely shy of boiling!

For all the good it will do you?

Also, is it possible that Ms B (and Ash) know that the food is not for them and the tapping and meowing are chastising you for setting up such a horrible situation?

Dear Big Baby Boss,

Yes, you can have the car for your hot date. Just keep in mind that your girlfriend is amorously inclined for only three weeks every six months.

Love,
Daddy

Of course, Tall Geeky Girl, you may forward the letter to Ash. Tell me if it works for you; there is no such luck here!


You're quite possibly correct, GenYus234 --- but wouldn't the claws be out for reinforcement of Ms. B's strenuous objections to inappropriate for cat food? Or are the claws just the next step in totally subjugating me to her will?

Of course, I nearly am completely in her power. Today's lunch will be fish sticks.
