Letter to Our Cats and Dogs

This was submitted by a visitor and I loved it! I hope you will to:

Dear Dogs and Cats,

The dishes with the paw print are yours and contain your food. The other dishes are mine and contain my food. Please note, placing a paw print in the middle of my plate and food does not stake a claim for it becoming your food and dish, nor do I find that aesthetically pleasing in the slightest.

The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack. Beating me to the bottom is not the object. Tripping me doesn't help because I fall faster than you can run.
I cannot buy anything bigger than a king sized bed. I am very sorry about this. Do not think I will continue sleeping on the couch to ensure your comfort. Dogs and cats can actually curl up in a ball when they sleep.

For the last time, there is not a secret exit from the bathroom. If by some miracle I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it is not necessary to claw, whine or meow, try to turn the knob or get your paw under the edge and try to pull the door open. I must exit through the same door I entered. Also, I have been using the bathroom for years-canine or feline attendance is not mandatory.

The proper order is kiss me, then go smell the other dog or cat's butt. I cannot stress this enough!

To pacify you, my dear pets, I have posted the following message on our front door:

Rules for Non-Pet Owners Who Visit and Like to Complain About Our Pets

1. They live here. You don't.

2. If you don't want their hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture. (That's why they call it "fur"niture.)

3. I like my pets a lot better than most people.

4. To you, it's an animal. To me, he/she is an adopted son/daughter who is short, hairy, walks on all fours and doesn't speak clearly. Dogs and cats are better than kids. They eat less, don't ask for money all the time, are easier to train, usually come when called, never drive your car, don't hang out with drug-using friends, don't smoke or drink, don't worry about having to buy the latest fashions, don't wear your clothes, and don't need a gazillion dollars for college. And if they get pregnant, you can sell the children.

Peanut all grown up and performing live at Lollapalooza!

This is my cat named, Peanut!
Included is a picture of him as a baby...and what he looks like today.

We hand raised him on a bottle. He was found with his 3 siblings in an old shed, and his mother died of distemper. ( the siblings were: 2 orange, 1 black, 1 striped) He only survived out of the lot of them. Bless his heart, we thought he'd be the one not to make it...but I guess a strong heart kept him alive, and a lot of love.

The strangely odd thing about how we found them? His mother knew that we went there every day to feed horses, but we hadn't seen any kittens at all. All of a sudden, we went there, and there were the 4 of them on a wooden table near a box, crawling, and meowing at the top of their lungs. We searched for the mother, and she lay dying in the barn, in the hay. She died that night, but managed to make sure we knew her babies were there, to help at least save one of them. We did what we could for them, along with more information from a vet, (about Toxidiosis, and distemper, and more.)

Peanut survived, and he is the apple of my eye! I love him, along with our other cats. Dad thinks he's just an orange cat! But I tell him, "He's not 'Just an orange cat!', He's my Ginger Tabby, and I love him more than any other cat I've had! He's Special!"

I fixed this picture, for a laugh, and everyone thought it was funny! He was playing with a shoestring, in which he acts more like a dog towards. Follows you around, will make you play with him, and so on. He's a very special cat. I love him...or so you can tell!

I keep pictures of him always around me...because I miss him when I'm working. lol

Hope you post this...it turned out pretty well.
Thanks...Cat Lover In Missouri.
