Hello Kitty Things you shouldn't have to tell your pet

Bear,

I think you should just leave the faucet drinking to Enoch. While he isn't exactly an expert at it, unlike you he has nevertheless advanced well past the stage of sticking his nose directly into the stream and inhaling. That you haven't figured this out after more than two years of trying doesn't give me hope that you ever will, so just stick to drinking from the water dishes.

~mom

P.S. PLEASE keep your tail out of it, though. I prefer a little more control over when I take a shower.

Flanders and Felix, I really do not appreciate being awakened at 6:30am! Surely you know that I do not do mornings well!

Rupert, I'd really prefer to stay in bed and cuddle with you, but if I don't get up and go to work, I can't buy you catfood.

Hello Kitty

Ash, we would like to have some heat, too. I know it's a chilly day, and the heater vent feels good, but, well... we get cold, too. Could you move just a little further away from the vent so the heat would circulate better?



No?

Oh... well.. ok... I'll just get under a blanket or something...

Yup, that looks like "no" to me.

In this house there is no asking, just the moving of furry butts off the furnace vent. Survival of the fattest, y'know.

Hey, there's a little bit of clearance there. I'm sure Ash gave you as much of the warm air as you are entitled to.

Sadie:
Don't scream hysterically when I go to the bathroom. I promise I won't fall down the toilet.
And:
Don't pierce my ears.
Don't reprogram the computer and make the task bar disappear.
Don't eat the mouse.

Hello Kitty

Seven,

If you continue to claw me while I sleep, I will in fact put you outside of the bedroom door and lock you out...FOREVER.

When my daughter was little, we briefly tried to close her cat (then a kitten) out of her bedroom.

He clawed through the carpet to the subfloor.

We have a vent that pushes the hot air out right at the level of the lowest shelf in a bookcase.

So, in our house, we cleared off all items from that shelf and put a blanket there. Survival of the cutest, here.

(And survival of our breakable knick-knacks)

Dear Bailey Kitty,

We are not going to be turning on the faucets for you to drink out of when we move. You are going to have to learn how to drink out of a dish. However since you seem not to like drinking after the dog you will have your own dish somewhere where he can't drink out of it like on the shelves I plan on making for you.

This is a warning.

- Love, Mom.

Don't worry, Bailey. Despite your mother's heartless forcing of all these cruel changes on you, there will be something good. All over the house will be these things called palmetto bugs, and they will be the funnest thing ever to chase. Have a wonderful time.

Who needs an exterminator when you have a cat who will catch them, play with them and a dog will go along and eat them.

I'm looking forward to her seeing her first lizard. That is going to be fun.

Adolf: Do not knock over the water tray. Do not bother Sadie. Do not crash land in the oil paint and then dance on the keyboard.

Sadie: Doing number 2 is not the way you sign paintings--especially my paintings!

Bear,

No, I'm not taking the clock off the wall so you can study the second hand and its too high for you to reach for a reason. Find something else to do.

Sez you. When I first moved into my current apartment, I saw a palmetto bug run under the front door right under the noses of my cats. They watched it run past them into my bedroom and then looked up at me as if to say "What? Are you kidding me? That thing was HUGE! Get the Flit, Henry."

TGG:

When Goldie was alive (she's the dog in my avatar), the living room furnace vent was prime real estate during the winter. I even had a pad there. Jasper, my other dog at the time dare not approach that vent! I have a pillow there now for Felix T. Cat to lie on, but he prefers the bedroom vent, where I have a rug he can lay on.

*Sighs*

Tini... please don't get into the garbage in the middle of the night, eat something that makes you sick, throw up, hide the throw up to eat later, and protect your hidden throw up from the cat.

I'm not making this up.
