I really don't think you ever need to take another photograph again. I love these so much!

I love these "photographs", too!! And, a cat on the table? I have never heard of such a thing!!!!

Next piece of advice to be ignored:

Squirt bottle loaded with water spiked with vinegar. They hate getting wet and dislike the taste of the vinegar when they go to lick off the water.

Are you eating spinach in the cartoon? Does the cat want any?

I have had an untold amount of cats in my lifetime, and I would try to squirt bottle on Mokey except for the fact that Katie and I are hardly ever home, and when we are, we're asleep for most of it. It's hard to drive home a point when the cat has free reign over the house 80% of the day. The vinegar touch is a nice one, though. Hmmm...

I'm really just being humorous here, she's really a well-behaved cat, a real sweetheart.

And as for the "kittens in pairs" advice, I fully see the logic in that, and thought of getting another at the time, but did not for a few reasons;
a) Two kittens grow into two cats, and at this point, I don't want to cats (and don't know if we even are allowed multiple pets here).
b) Two kittens cost twice as much as one kitten, and this ONE has already cost us hundreds of dollars(fees, supplies, vet visits, etc)
c) We still have Africa firmly in our sights, so as I was considering getting another kitten, I thought "I'm already gonna have to find a home for this one in a few years. I don't want to have to find a place for TWO."
d) If I got two cats my mother would kill me, as she has plenty of free cats (and one very specific orange cat) that she wants to give me. So If I get another, it really should come from the Reid Adoption Agency of Vicksburg, MS. (And Mom- I don't want another cat right now, sorry.)

dude, are you feeding your cat e. coli spinach? that is just so wrong. i think i'm gonna call peta.

As for me feeding my cat e coli spinach and others possibly reporting me to PETA, I think you'll have a hard time making the case that I used fecal matter to poison an animal that cleans its own butt with its tongue.

wagsandpurrs said...

Yeah, that is why I'm not too worried about my cats drinking the water during this boil water mandate. I have heard the rumor that cats indeed DO like their butts, so I will take your word for it. And speaking of orange cats, yes, there is one that would gladly move to South Carolina. He is a sweetheart, but I just can't remember where we got him........OH, and his birthday was yesterday!! He is 7!! Happy Birthday, Little Guy!!!!

Okay, in my last post I inadvertantly said that cats "like" their butts, and while I am sure that they do, I meant, "lick". Sorry!

Erica said...

I'm pretty sure cats like their butts, too.

But what I want to know is, why won't anyone listen to St. Izzy or St. Elizabeth? (sigh)

Having 3 cats is a dream.

Mokey is precious!

Mmmmm...delicious e. coli spinach.
