Cat Commandments

Cat Commandments

My Confession:

Sometimes I DO ignore Gibbs and Ziva (but they always get even).

I don’t spend the majority of my paycheck on cat gifts and toys. But, really, who else would get the kids a toy called Marie Rattoinette? Huh?

*sheepishly, they agree*

You know, I’ve had other cats before you. It is the way it is in the life of a feline lover. You both would have loved fat Willie (he was a beautiful soul), although the Queen would have had to spar with him over food.

I promise, I will not burden you with a dog. At least for now.

While I want to shower you two with love and attention upon demand, there are times when I have my hands full with other responsibilities, like cooking bacon for breakfast or chicken for my lunch the next day…

*pause* *light bulb moment*

Oh, wait a minute, now I get it. I smell like bacon and chicken.

Finally, I don’t always adhere to #10.

Hey kids, it’s hard enough keeping myself happy. Now you expect me to be the good mom all the time…to pet you, feed you, get up when you’re hungry, leave you alone when you’re tired, buy lots of toys and treats, never take you to the vet, never yell or tell you to get off the counters, love you forever and always let you do what you want? Really?

Sorry, but you’re still going to the vet, you can’t always do what you want and Gibbs has to stay off the counter.

*Ziva gives an “Iwillsuperficiallyagreewithyou nod*

*Gibbs has found his way to the kitchen and is looking up*

*Human reviews the cat commandments and heaves a heavy sigh*

Happy Commandment Caturday!

        No, at least not all the time. But the dog does get put in her crate if she steps too far out of line. I should also mention that one of the cats picks on the dog a bit (but I’m sure that’s ok).

        Isn’t it funny…the cat’s ego, that it would pick on a dog much larger than he/she. Takes some kahonas.

    Sounds like Ziva and Gibbs have it pretty good. Although there is always room for improvement! 🙂

    There’s too much OTT silliness about our moggies. Only silly old ladies treat them like that.
    I, for instance, am known for throwing things at Lui and chasing him around the flat … but it’s only when he bites me for breaking the 3rd commandment. (As for the Other 3rd one, I break that all the time !)

      I have to admit I threw a half empty box of Kleenex at Gibbs this morning for waking me up again at 4 a.m. He was hungry. Made me also want to break the other third commandment.

    Yes, Leo and Cielo remind me of these often. And I do try, but sin, I do at times. Also, my sister is living with us right now and she brought her adorable dog into the mix. Leo feels obliged to slap him at least once a week, even though poor Mojo is perfectly happy being #3 in the hierarchy.

    • bikerchick57 says:

      Leo is being pretty easy on the dog with just one slap in a week. Then again, the dog is happy in his place, so I suppose there is not much need for further punishment 😉
