Cats are going to be annoyed that we discovered their manual! My significant other at the time had some acquaintances once who used to drop in uninvited when they were in the area. I hated this but he encouraged it. So I wasn't too upset when my cat would go to the woman (who was allergic to cats) and ignore the man (who loved cats and was constantly trying to get her to come to him instead). Did my cat know I wanted to discourage this dropping-in business and was helping or was she just a little fiend?!
Wow...were they talking about my cats....I swear that's EXACTLY what they do and think!!!!!
Things don't go wrong and break your heart so you can become bitter and give up. They happen to break you down and build you up so you can be all that you were intended to be.”

Advice for cats who have households to run 2010-11-25 19:35 | Leo
CHAIRS AND RUGS: If you have to throw up, get into a chair quickly. If you cannot manage in time, get to an Oriental rug. If no Oriental rug is available, shag is good. Personally, I can also recommend the human slave's bed, preferably while the slave is in it. Whenever you have thrown up, act disgusted and look accusingly at the slave.
DOORS: Do not allow closed doors in any room. To get a door opened, stand on hind legs and hammer with forepaws. Once the door has been opened, it is not necessary to use it. After you have ordered an outside door opened, stand halfway in and out and think about several things, This is particularly important during very cold weather, storms, rain, snow and mosquito season.
GUESTS: Quickly determine which guest hates cats the most. Sit on that human's lap. If you can, arrange to have "Friskies Fish n' Glop" on your breath. For sitting on laps or rubbing against clothing, select fabric color which contrasts well with your fur. For example: white furred cats go to black wool clothing. For the guest who claims, "I love kitties," be ready with aloof disdain; apply claws to stockings or use a quick nip on the ankle. When walking among the dishes on the dinner table, be prepared to look surprised and hurt when scolded. The idea is to convey, "But you always allow me on the table when company isn't here." Always accompany guests to the bathroom. It isn't necessary to do anything. Just sit and stare.
WORK: If one of your human slaves is sewing or writing and another is idle, stay with the busy one. This is called helping, otherwise known as hampering. The rules for hampering are: When supervising cooking, sitjust behind the left heel of the cook. You can't be seen and thereby stand a better chance of being stepped on, picked up and consoled. For book readers, get in close under the chin, between the human's eyes and the book, unless you can lie across the book itself. If it is a newspaper, claw at it until it's shredded. In all cases, act very hurt and bewildered if the human slave objects.
