I came home from a three day business conference once to find that he'd gotten up into the cabinet, tore open a previously unopened bag of spaghetti, and scattered the entire contents of it across the kitchen floor.

Since my sister was coming over daily to feed him, he must have done it on the day I returned or sometime after her last visit to give him food and water.

I'm sure he enjoyed it.

Dear Andraste (Andi):
It's official: you are going to the vet for a check up and needed shots. You've come a long way since DH and I adopted you, but you'll always be a bit skittish. However, you need to get regular vet checks. The other cats get them! The appointment won't be for another week but it's coming.

The one who feeds you most mornings.

PS: I didn't give you your esoteric name--that's DH's doing.

My mother likes eating raw eggbow noodles directly from the package. The cats learned how to hook their paw inside and snag them.
They also learned how to (try to) open the door by pushing on the handle.

Dear Immy,

Was it really necessary to lounge on top of the pizza box? There was still pizza in there, after all.

Dear Ferdinand,

You are the most vocal dog I've ever known--why didn't you tell me your shoulder hurt? If R hadn't noticed you were limping, so that I started watching you and took you to the vet, who knows how long this would've gone on. Clearly, by your behavior last evening, the medicines make you much happier.

Now we have to deal with those itchy eyes and paws...

Dear Hammy,

Please just stay away from my scraped knee. Given your personality, I assume your attempts to head-bump it are meant to comfort me, but when you succeed, it hurts: you are strong.

And absolutely keep away from it when I'm cleaning/re-bandaging it! I already found some of your fur stuck to the scrape.

Yeah, it's been 114 here. If she wants a warm belly she can look out the window for 10 seconds.

Dear Minnie-kitty,

Stop running into the garage every chance you can. You don't enjoy being out there; why do you keep doing it?

Signed,

Dear Ferdinand,

Thank you for teaching me how persistent you can be if there's something you want to get into. No thank you for pooping peanuts for 18 hours straight. I know that (for once) you only pooped in the house because you were desperate, but I still don't appreciate it. No harm was done to the house or you, but it was uncomfortable for you, and disgusting to me. Sadly, I'm sure you do not connect the peanut poop with your misbehavior. Sigh.

Your human,

Seaboe

Dear Gobi and Kate: cats are supposed to be neat and clean in everything they do, including eating. So why in the name of Bast are you two such messy eaters? Gobi, you're the worst when it comes to that--what gives? In addition to being yet something else I have to clean up, it's a waste of food. Could you two please knock it off? Steely Dan and Andi aren't messy eaters! You could learn something from them! My lands, Pearl isn't a messy eater either! Yes, the Dog of the House is a cleaner eater than two of the House Cats! Chew on that for a while!

The cleaning lady

Dear Ferdinand,

I should just quote my letter from the 27th of June. I'm sorry I had to make you throw up yesterday, but you ate dog poison and I could not let that be. If you were a bigger dog, maybe, but you're only 18 lbs.

Seaboe, who had to clean up all the messes.

Dear Kitties --

Aw, you missed me while I was away most of the day yesterday! Yes, even you, Miss Iris the (allegedly) Independent. I know because you stayed curled up by my pillow for hours, even after I sat up for a drink of water, even after I got up
briefly to to go the bathroom!

I will find ways to get out of the house more. It's good for my mood more ways than one.

Mama

Dear Minnie-kitty,

I understand you feel a need to give new kitty the business, lest she usurp your authority. But growling at her as she's using the litter box. It was her litter box she was using. Would you rather she pee on the floor like our late Sabrina-kitty.

Signed,

Your Baffled Thumbbeast

Dear Ash,

Your coat is long, silken, and luxurious floof! It is also rather dark, and unlike you felines, perfect in every day, we big clumsy oafish humans do not have good night vision.

I am so sorry I didn't see you this morning. I'm glad I didn't hurt you, nor myself as I went all the day down as you scattered to get out of my path.

I'm glad you forgave me quickly, but I'm sure the kitty treats had something to do with that.

I'll try to be more careful in the future.

Hugs and scritches,
Tall Clumsy Nightblind Geeky Girl

Dear Boomer-Dog,

Dammit! Stop tearing loose on walks! I don't care if that cat is the reincarnation of Attila the Hun. Leave it alone!

You're pushing the limits of your lovability and if you keep this up, maybe I'll finally go through with my threats to establish the Association for the Promotion of Cruelty to Animals! Or maybe I'll see if the glue factory will take you.

You have cats at home if you want to chase them. It might do them some good, keep 'em on their toes.

Signed,

Irritated and Worried Human

Dear Roxy-Kitty,

I've been told that you have made your first kill. Is this the part where you stop being cute, fluffy kitten and go into psycho kitten mode? It probably is. Still, hold your little head high around Minnie-kitty. You too, are a fierce and mighty huntress as well.

Signed,

Your Loving but Slightly Terrified Thumbbeast

Dear Cheeto --

I'm terribly sorry I was holding my arm so far from my body last night when you tried to jump over me in bed. Judging from the length of the deep, blooody scratch you left behind, it apparently really threw you off. Most inconsiderate of me.

Mama
