Dear Nelson,

When you to jump into my bed and demand petting shortly after my alarm goes off, I allow it because you're basically acting as my backup alarm. Do not take this as an indication that you can demand petting at 4 am.

Sincerely,
Sleepy human

Dear Ferdinand,

Where did this new habit of barking at odd noises (and refusing to take my word for it that it's me) come from? What can I do that will make you stop it?

Dearest Ms. B,

Why have I ever paid any cash at all for a cat toy? There are several, ignored but in your reach, on the floor. You are playing with a reusable grocery sack and a straw. You seem to be enjoying the straw and sack very much and have played with them off and on for hours.

No more store bought toys for you, young lady!

She who opens the cans



*I cut the straps on the sack off so they couldn't accidentally wrap around her. It's officially hers, now. I paid $.50 for the sack -- I guess that does count as store bought.

Dear WildaBeast,

You still have so much to learn about cats. Nelson won that battle.

Dear Immy,

What gives? I picked you up and plunked you on top of me while I was lying in bed. You jumped off, stomped around with a huff.... then jumped right back on top of me and settled down exactly where I put you, and the purring began. Seriously, cat.

your human.

Yeah, I'd buy that if she hadn't been headbutting me for attention.

Maybe her turning away was a way of saying, "Invalid initial response. Try again tomorrow."

One of mine very often is on the bed when I get into it. Almost always, she'll get down as soon as I'm in bed; and then, very often, get back up onto the same spot within a few minutes.

The other two will just stay put; so it's not as if my getting into the bed is automatically so disruptive that a cat can't stay put during the process. Plus which, she'll often get down right after I've gotten in there, not while I'm doing so.

I found the hairball... It was on a rug just inside our front door. It's sort of blended in so I didn't see it the other day when it was fresh.

Dear Sabrina-Cat,

Well, it's finally goodbye. I'm not too surprised. We got you when I was thirteen, meaning that if you were a person, you'd be old enough to vote. Of course, at the time we got you, we also got a pair of black kittens just eight weeks old. The kittens eventually went to their final reward, but you hadn't, causing me to wonder if I had adopted the kitty highlander. Again, you were older than the kittens, but somehow you outlasted them.

But now it's over. I'm not too surprised. You were old and acting sick, so it was probably your time. I find myself somewhat melancholy over your deal. No one ever knew your story. We got you from a shelter, but didn't know anything before it, whether you were brain-damaged or abused or both.

You spent many years being the most neurotic creature on God's green earth, only becoming slightly less neurotic when you entered your senior years. I don't know if you ever really bonded with us. First few years, you ran when you saw us and again, only calmed down a little with age. And yes, your litterbox issues did irritate us, but we knew you'd be unlikely to find a better home than the one you've got. So we kept you; we believe that if you adopt an animal, it's for life or until the animal becomes sick or vicious.

But hey, it's all over for you. No matter how neurotic you were, regardless of if you ever really bonded with anyone, you're no longer sick and in pain.

Take Care,

One of Your Scary Upright Thumbbeasts

Condolences, Mouse. It is pretty hard to lose even a neurotic cat. Our cat before last that died was...well, she was the best kitty she could be, but pretty vicious to everyone that was not family, and never stopped peeing at random spots, but...well, she was the best kitty she could be, and we miss her, so condolences on your kitty.

I'm so sorry, Mouse, but glad that Sabrina found a loving home despite her issues.

My daughter and I tend to find it oddly endearing when a cat is what we call "pissy" (meaning cranky, not referring to urination issues). It's DD's tortie, Rin's main charm, in fact.

Dear Ferdinand,

Yes, it is raining again. Yes, you have to go for a walk. No, planting your four paws and making me drag you won't get you out of it--at least, not until you've done your duty, both urine and feces.

To all of the members of the Feline Oligarchy:
Cats are obligate meat eaters. That means that you kitties eat nothing but meat. You are not supposed to like the following:
Hummus; popcorn; pasta; rice; rice with cheese; Grapenuts cereal/the store brand counterpart; iced tea; bread; eggs; dogfood.

Y'all are crazy!
