She's rubbish, you know

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Friday, April 12, 2013



This female human we live with. She forgot to start spring this year so we went back into hibernation. She's also useless at remembering to feed us. Just how difficult is it to open a can of Whiskas when asked, hm? No we can't do it ourselves, we haven't got the thumbs. If mice had ringpulls, we'd have evolved with thumbs. Natural selection. As it is, we've trained humans instead.

Her behaviour wants some attention. The week before last, she didn't come in till 11.30 in the evening. Not a word about where she'd been, either. Last summer and again early this year, there was a succession of men making loud noises in her bedroom with their tools. Yes, really. Disgraceful. When we moved in, we're pretty certain she signed a contract saying it was just her and us.

Honestly, it won't do.

Thirteen years we've been putting up with this and she is getting worse not better. It's important to us to mark our territory outdoors. Whose garden is it? Exactly. Stop complaining about the smell, even if it is on your washing.

She's got thinner, recently. Not nearly as comfortable to sit on. We thought we'd soften her up by drooling a bit but she only gets ratty (cat pun). She spends hours on that laptop that she should be spending with us. Once we work out where the 'on' switch is, it's history.

Just watch us.

PS: she wishes us to add that she had damp in the bedroom last year and a malfunctioning boiler in February and these required investigation and remedial work.

Really.

    If you can accept a compliment from a dog, Heidi the Dachshund shares your disgust about an owner's goings-on, What is all that jumping around to loud music that she does right before "logging on" to Sparkpeople? The only good news is that there's much more room for pets in the recliner chair, now that she takes up less space!

    I think you need to stop leaving your laptop on and unattended. That ought to stop the cats slandering you at least until they learn how to turn it off and on. lol

    We have two very spoiled cats who have forgotten they were rescued from probably death when they were Kittens. The Siamese thinks she is the one in charge and will play fetch until her humans give out and the big gray cat demands attention at times.

    Dictated note from Primrose:

Sweetie, they are ALL rubbish! My female forgets the flavour of food I prefer, forgets to change my box (even automatic boxes need to be dumped), and is gone for HOURS every day.

    The question was once asked if we owned cats, or were we cat "parents". The best reply- "we are cat's servants, of course." emoticon

    cute! note to cat..."try working out with mom instead of looking at the negative, you will give her a work out buddy and you will feel better too. after all, she will notice you more and you will both be getting more bonding time in. true, she will not chase mice with you, but she may be reminded to open the can for her little workout buddy :)"

    You know the old saying, "long ago cats were worshiped as gods. They still think they are". Ours would jump up on our laps when we were reading the newspaper, or when I was doing counted cross-stitch. Heaven forbid I'd make them move.

    Yes, our furbabies do think they rule the roost. My sister has a sign on her door. It has a picture of a black lab and it says I only let the humans live here.
