Dear Roxy,

What is it with you and Christmas? Other cats we’ve had, would bat at the ornaments or make an attempt to climb the tree, but you seem to be on a mission of destruction when it comes to the holiday. This is your first Christmas, so don’t try to claim trauma.

Signed,

Your Baffled Thumbbeast

Dear Mouse,

I am a kitten! a kitten! a kitten!

Some of us are just like that.

-- love, Roxy

Dear Pearl: the vet has cleared you for exercise effective on New Year's Day. Oh, weight loss and maintenance is forever, so get used to far fewer biscuits. And quit giving me that look! Unless you're auditioning for a role in Oliver Twist, in which case, practice it while I'm at work!

Dear Gobi: you do realize that the new crinkly tube is for all of the cats don't you? Yes you have to share it!

One of the resident humans

Dear Roxy-Kitty,

I know you’re going to be upset about not being able to have food and water past 10, but it’s the vet’s orders. We want you to enjoy being a squirrelly, spirited kitty without being slowed down by kittens.

You’ll be home Tuesday and your belly fur will grow back.

Love,

Your Faithful Upright Thumbbeast

Enoch-kitty~

You know I don't like it when you sit on the laptop keyboard. You end up pressing so many keys that you confuse the machine to the point that I usually have to restart it.

Before I do, though, I simply must inquire about the search you initiated:

AIQU!~$SC

What the hell were you searching for??

Dear Nelson-Kitty,

It's really sweet how you've been jumping onto my bed and wanting cuddles at night lately. But how it it that you always seem to end up right in the middle of the bed, leaving me to sleep in the 12 inches or so of space between you and the edge? That's so inconsiderate of you to hog the bed like that. Can't you just stick to your side of the bed?

The human.

Dear WildaBeast,

Have you learned nothing in these threads? Cats take over beds. It's a Law of Nature. Except for Sandstone who never even tried and we all agree that is not normal kitty behavior.

Dear Gobi-
I find it endearing that you knead my boobs do much, but could you do it with claws retracted? It really hurts otherwise.

Your loyal employee

Cats are like the gaseous state of matter, they change shape and size to fill whatever container they are in, be it tiny box or queen size bed.

My cat weighs 6 1/2 pounds. She can effortlessly take over my full sized bed.

Bear, my current kitty's late brother, figured out that the way to control the bed was to control access to the pillows.

His sibling hasn't figured that out yet.

Shhhh!

I don't know about cats, but in my experience Labradors are pretty good at taking over the bed too. They are also under the impression that they are lap dogs.

Ferdinand weighs 18.5 lbs and stands 11" high. He is fully capable of taking over the bed.

Speaking of whom:

Dear Ferdinand, barking is rarely acceptable, and it's never acceptable when you're barking at me. This is a lesson you'd better get through your stubborn little head, or you're going to find snacks making rarer appearances.

Sincerely,

Seaboe

Dear WildaBeast: it is Bast's will that we take over beds!

Dear Minnie-Kitty,

I've accepted that you will be all "You damn kid!" towards the new kitty. I know how it is with kitties. But hissing at Roxy when she's using her litter box? What is wrong with you? She was using HER litterbox. Would you rather she just peed on the floor like our Late Sabrina-Cat?

Sincerely,

Your Baffled Ball-Throwing Thumbbeast

Dear Big Baby Boss,

I used to call myself your pet human. I thought it was silly when pet owners called themselves their pets' Mommy or Daddy. I've reconsidered. Pets don't have responsibilities; parents do. I get to feed you, take you for walks, take you to the vet, and rub your belly. I'm still your human, and I'm your Daddy.

Love,
Daddy

Dear Roxy-kitty,

I hope that sore over one of your eyes heals, up on its own. I know you don’t enjoy being stuffed into a carrier and taken to the vet. Hence why I’m watching and waiting.

Love,

Your Slightly Concerned Thumbbeast

Dear Gobi (why is it always you?): don't be hatin'! A few nights ago you were sitting on my lap/chest. Kate wanted to hang out with me as well, and was directly behind me on the couch. It was rude of you to swat at her and hiss! Then you took off, so what was the point?

Confused human

PS: You should know by now that there's plenty of me to go around!

Kitty~

I don't know what your fascination with pennies is, or where it came from, but the look on your face when I spun one on the table top made my day.

I think Nelson may be reading this thread. Lately he's been like "Fine, you can have the middle of the bed. I'll just lie directly on top of your legs instead, thereby trapping you in the bed."
