People don’t realize how hard we cats have to work to “help” the humans get it right! No matter what we do to correct their mistakes they always come around and undo our contributions.
So, human- would you care to explain?
You know, I would love to have a heating pad to claim as my own mom, but you haven’t given us one. Yet, I looked in your phone and found pictures of Abby lounging lazily on a nice, warm heating pad in tons of pictures taken while you were away. FOR OUR THANKSGIVING HOLIDAY.
There’s Serafina (with her tongue hanging out) also- lounging lazily on top of the sound bar in front of the tv. You don’t let US do that!
And then there’s these….
Now, we all know that’s YOUR laptop, Mom. Why would you let another cat near your laptop? That’s our EXCLUSIVE right!
And then there’s THIS. (You’d better have a GOOD EXPLANATION FOR THIS ONE)…
You may apply for forgiveness- (no later than 10 am tomorrow morning)- but there’s no guarantee of acceptance. Just sayin.’
How COULD YOU?
Fine! Then I’ll take this one back!
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.
You could say it was a “Whiny Wednesday…”
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.
Then it hit me. MY REAL MAMA CAN’T OPEN A CAN!
(the saga continues tomorrow)….
It just figures. There had to be a catch.
This morning the Can Opener declared it a “kitty spa day”- and while Twilight was out playing with her Mama, she cuddled me in her lap on the bed while she had her morning apple and coffee until I fell asleep in her lap in a puddle of purrs. She let me fall asleep, and then clipped all my nails -(and I never even knew it until I woke up)!
Then she gave me a kitty massage, cleaned my ears and gave me treats- until I purred myself asleep again. When I woke up, Twilight was in the window stalking the birds in the front yard, then the human picked her up and gave her a spa treatment too- and brushed her and trimmed her claws too. But she got more treats than me!! That’s just not fair.
Then, when we were both all spoiled and relaxed- we found out there was a catch! She told us that Wednesday night she’s going to go stay at the Critters’ parents house until SATURDAY EVENING! She’s going over there to kitty-sit Serafina and Abby while they go out of town.
We’re not happy about this. The back-up Can Opener will be here, but he doesn’t play with us- or spoil us the same way. Oh we’ll be okay- but our MAMA won’t be here. We don’t like it one little kitty bit. We’re going to have to have a conference.
I think when the Can Opener comes back on Saturday, we’ll have a little surprise of our own waiting for her- just to show her our ‘appreciation.’
Say your prayers, human.
Good Morning! It’s time to get some coffee & get ready for some smiles!
There’s been so much happening – today is a big day for the big Critter- it’s her birthday! So our human has been busy getting things done for a pawsome surprise. Meanwhile, I’ll just sneak up on Sushi while she’s sleeping and have some fun while you look at some things guaranteed to start your day off with a smile!
A little Comfort for you
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.
