10 Things I Learned from My Cats-

A week or so ago one of the national Sunday newspaper magazines had a story titled “ten things You Can Learn from Your Pet. That got me thinking about all the valuable lessons I have learned over the years from our cats-

10. If you have a tummy ache, hacking up disgusting things in someone else’s slippers will make you feel better.

9. You can always get what you want by wailing loudly enough for it.

8. A good goal in life is to sleep all day in the sun.

7. Canned horse meat is tasty.

6. So are mouse heads.

5. It’s never a bad time to lick yourself.

4. There’s nothing quite as amusing as an empty cardboard box.

3. Couches are for shredding.

2. People will forgive anything if you’re cute.

1. As long as you don’t get caught, it’s ok to pee on the carpet.

I was just thinking the other day that, when I die, I'd like to come back as a beloved housecat. My kitties have a NICE life; they get fed regularly (though I'm sure they'd prefer the canned horse meat, they only get the good-for-them kibbles), they have run of the house all day, they can go out (or come in) as they please, and I'm meticulous about scooping the box. Not a bad life, wouldn't you say?

You should do my Ten Things Tuesday meme. You'd be good at it, I think.

If I was a cat, I'd be all about number 5.

11. you will get away with sticking your arse in your owners face as he wakes up 'cause he's a big softy and will get up and feed you

12. you will get away with sticking your claws into your owners toes as he bounces up and down on his Mrs 'cause she'll think it's funny and he daren't throw you out of the window in front of her.

If you are left home alone, all rules of deportment are off. It's a hol-i-day!!!

I live my life by those rules. Except for the mouse heads - I never did see the appeal...

LOL! Amen to our kitty cats!
Still trying to figure out this dog thing....there seems to be so little purpose to much of what he does.
