HURRY UP, Can Opener- and we MIGHT forgive you- (better bring treats and toys)…
We have been really upset with you, Can Opener. We’ve even decided not to eat -(while Daddy’s looking)- until you get back, so HURRY UP! The neighbors don’t serve Fancy Feast and WeRuVa- and Daddy doesn’t do it the way we like – and, he doesn’t put my special blankie down at bedtime and tuck me in with my bunny.
So Sushi and I will keep dispensing fur everywhere until you get here.
Sushi and I weren’t happy. All day since the Critters arrived that morning at 6:00 am, we were anxiously waiting for the Critters to go home, so we could tackle the Can Opener for treats and playtime.
But this time things were different. We knew there was going to be trouble when we saw the human unplug the Keurig and dump the water out of the back, and pack up her WHOLE 24 PACK of kcups- and her laptop, and her Bible, journal, and pack clothes.
WAIT A FLEA-PICKIN’ MINUTE THERE, MOM….WHAT THE HECK ARE YOU DOING?
I didn’t like the look of this at all. Obviously, she wasn’t going to the store. She goes there to get coffee, not give it away!
But sure enough, when the Critters’ Dad came to pick them up, he started taking the Keurig to the car, and the human packed up the kids and then started getting herself ready to leave too!
She had talked to me that morning and said she was leaving for a little bit, but would be back and “Daddy will take care of you and Sushi…”
But I thought she just hadn’t had enough coffee yet. I was hoping, anyway.
Sushi heard all the commotion, and heard her leave (Keurig and all),… and got up and cried for mama. I got disgusted and went outside to look for my REAL Mama.
Our Can Opener feeling better, but the Back-up Can Opener is still not feeling well, so she spent extra time praying last night. I like it when she does that, because she tends to pace back and forth sometimes and I like to hang over her shoulder and purr as she holds me and prays. When she’s done she’s more peaceful and I’m ready for a nap.
She knows things are hard for everyone right now, not just him and her. So this morning is all about comfort.
Did you know that we cats are great for stress relief? Yep. And that’s not just coming from me. Even doctors agree.
Here’s a few random facts for you about the benefits of having a pet – (cats, specifically, because- well, I’M A CAT).
This is the short version- there are many more benefits to having a cat.
We are great companions and reduce loneliness- and petting a cat helps our owners relax and even reduces blood pressure! Studies also have shown we reduce the chances of heart disease, and strokes, help your immune system(s), and our purrs even help heal your bones!
And if that’s not enough, we also have been shown to help autistic children, and to help prevent ashtma (in children) and improve your mood.
I could go on- but you might want to read it for yourself here.
Or, you could just consult your cat. If you don’t have a cat, I think you should get one- immediately if not sooner.
That psychotic albino flea gets bored and keeps pretending to snuggle up with me and groom me only to turn around and SWAT the fleas right off me trying to make me play. I’m telling you, one of these days….I’m going to swat her clear to the moon!
She’s got it coming… I can’t even enjoy a nice, long, nap on a rainy day without her pouncing on me. And now the Can Opener is insisting on trimming my claws. She got two done before I decided it wasn’t going to happen- not in this lifetime!
