Our Mew Year’s Resolutions:

It’s that time of year for false promises and unrealistic expectations and us cats are right up there with our owners in wanting to be “purrfect.” No one is however, as we all know, and among us felines we have vowed that this coming year we will at least try to behave better as that seems a much more realistic goal. (Last year we tried to give up catnip and it just failed miserably.) But we are sincere and are prepared to put our money where our paws are because we are daring to put it in writing (well, sort of) for the entire world to see. Here it is:

We do hereby solemnly swear (that’s me, Jasmine Dee, Maine Coon, Chloey (calico Tabby) and Sam O. Vahr (domestic black shorthair), who reside in a nice home in the land of the free and the brave, that in the year 2008 we will:

1. Leave the living room drapes alone (maybe).

2. Eat whatever Mommy gives us (not likely).

3. Come when called. (Ha! If you believe that, I’ve got a bridge to sell you that connects the borough of Brooklyn to the rest of New York City.)

We will not:

4. Be destructive. (Those hand drills are going back to the hardware store tomorrow.)

5. Ignore our folks when they dare to leave us for more than an hour and don’t take us with them.

We realize there are only five things here (yeah, cats can count, especially mice and fish). We could put more down on the list, but after careful discussion, we want to be realistic and figure this is the best we can do and all we can handle at the moment.

Mom and Pop are gone now and that living room chandelier needs dangling from and here comes Sammo with those party hats…

Excuse us please!

Happy Mew Year!


A Cats Purr

"Cats make one of the most satisfying sounds in the world: they purr ...

A purring cat is a form of high praise, like a gold star on a test paper. It is reinforcement of something we would all like to believe about ourselves - that we are nice."
