Cat Etiquette

Tuesday, November 03, 2009

If you have to throw up, get into a chair quickly. If you cannot manage this in time, get on to an Oriental rug, or a shagpile carpet.

Determine which guest hates cats. Sit on that lap during the evening. The guest wont dare push you off and will even call you ínice kitty.í If you can arrange to have cat food on your breath, so much the better.

Always accompany guests to the bathroom. It is not necessary to do anything. Just sit and stare.

For guests who say íI love kittiesí, be ready with aloof disdain, claws applied to stockings or a quick nip on the ankles.

Do not allow closed doors in any room. To get one open, stand on hind legs and hammer with forepaws. Once the door is opened for you, it is not necessary to use it. You can change your mind. When you have ordered an outside door opened, stand half in and half out and think about several things. This is particularly important during very cold weather or mosquito season.

If one person is busy and the other is idle, sit with the busy one. For book readers, get in close under the chin, unless you can lie across the book itself.

For ladies knitting, curl quietly into the lap and pretend to doze. Then reach out and slap knitting needles sharply. This is what she calls a dropped stitch. She will try to distract you. Ignore it.

For people doing homework, sit on the paper being worked on. After being removed for the second time, push anything movable off the table - pens, pencils, erasers - one at a time.

Get enough sleep during the daytime so that you are fresh for playing at night between 2 and 4 am.

    Sheesh, that is hilarious! My cat, Emmi, he was a stray that we "adopted", i.e, I felt sorry for him and made the idiotic mistake of actually feeding him, now he is a squatter who will never leave. I really love him, though, except for (as you said, between 2 and 4 am) when he decides he wants in...or he thinks he does..."stand half in and half out and think about several things. This is particularly important during very cold weather" - that is Emmi to a T!!! Lucky the little guy is cute or my boyfriend would not put up with it.

    Yep, so true. I asked my daughter what she was doing last night around 10 p.m., just sitting there in bed staring. She said she was waiting for our cat, Bella, to start scratching at the door, then she could lay down and go to sleep. Seems this is a nightly occurance between those two. Bella also loves to scare the crap out of you. When you walk through the hallway, she'll dart past and leap to the top of the doorway, clutching with all four paws, wrapped around the molding. I can't tell you how many times I've repainted this, and have since given up. Our Bella is a tiny 4 lb tuxedo who rules two mastiffs and several humans.....what a life they have!

Vatican debate

Monday, November 02, 2009

Several centuries ago, the Pope decided that all the Jews had to leave the Vatican. Naturally there was a big uproar from the Jewish community. So the Pope made a deal. He would have a religious debate with a member of the Jewish community. If the Jew won, the Jews could stay. If the Pope won, the Jews would leave. The Jews realized that they had no choice. So they picked an elderly aged man named Moishe to represent them. Rabbi Moisheís Latin wasnít very good - in fact, he knew very little--but he was a man of great faith and well respected in the Jewish community. The pope agreed. What could be easier than a silent debate?

The day of the great debate came. Moishe and the Pope sat opposite each other for a full minute before the Pope raised his hand and showed three fingers. Moishe looked back at him and raised one finger. The Pope waved his fingers in a circle around his head. Moishe pointed to the ground where he sat. The Pope pulled out a wafer and a glass of wine. Moishe pulled out an apple. The Pope stood up and said, "I give up. This man is too good. The Jews can stay."

An hour later, the cardinals were all around the Pope asking him what happened. The Pope said: "First I held up three fingers to represent the Trinity. He responded by holding up one finger to remind me that there was still one God common to both our religions. Then I waved my finger around me to show him that God was all around us. He responded by pointing to the ground and showing that God was also right here with us. I pulled out the wine and the wafer to show that God absolves us from our sins. He pulled out an apple to remind me of original sin. He had an answer for everything. What could I do?"

Meanwhile, the Jewish community had crowded around Moishe. "What happened?" they asked. "Well," said Moishe, "First he said to me that the Jews had three days to get out of here. I told him that not one of us was leaving. Then he told me that this whole city would be cleared of Jews. I let him know that we were staying right here." "And then?" asked a woman. "I donít know," said Moishe. "He took out his lunch and I took out mine."

    I am sure that the reasons those laws were passed was because at one time or another, something involving each of those laws came up, that's how they came into being. But they are outdated that's for sure!
