RULES FOR CATS TO LIVE BY
Always accompany quest to the bathroom. It
is not necessary to do anything. Just sit and stare.
Do not allow any closed doors in any room. To get door open, stand on hind legs and hammer with
forepaws. Once door is opened, it is not necessary to use it. After you have ordered an "outside"
door opened, stand halfway in and out and think several things. This is particulary important during
very cold weather, rain, snow, or mosquito season.
CHAIRS AND RUGS:
If you have to throw up, get to a chair or bed quickly. If you cannot manage this in time, get to
an Oriental rug. If there is no Oriental rug, any carpeting is good. When throwing up on the
carpet, make sure you back up so it is as long as a human's bare foot.
If one of your humans is engaged in some activity and the other is idle, stay with the busy one.
This is called "hampering". Following are the rules for "hampering:"
1) When supervising cooking, sit just behind the left heel of the cook. You can not be seen and
thereby stand a better chance of being stepped on and then picked up and comforted.
2) For book readers, get in close under the chin, between eyes and book, unless you can lie across
the book itself.
3) For paperwork, lie on the paper in the most appropriate manner so as to obscure as much of the
work as possible. Or pretend to doze, but occasionaly reach out and slap the pencil or pen.
4) For people paying bills or working on income taxes or Christmas cards, keep in mind the aim:
to hamper! First sit on the paper being worked on. When dislodged, watch sadly from the side
of the table. When activity proceeds, nicely roll around on the papers, scattering them to the
best of your ability. When removed for the second time, make all four legs flail wildly in order
to push pens, pencils and erasers off the table.
5) When a human is holding the newspaper in front of him/her, be sure to jump on the back of the
paper. Humans love suprises.
6) When a human is working at the computer, jump up on the desk, walk across the keyboard, bat
at the mouse pointer on the screen and then lay in the human's lap, across arms if possible
to hamper typing in progress.
As often as possible, dart quickly and as close as possible in front of the human, especially on
stairs, when they have something in their arms, in the dark, and when they first get up in the
morning. This will help their coordination skills.
Always sleep on the human at night so he/she doesn't move around to much.
When using the litter box, be sure to kick as much litter out of the box as possible, Humans love the
feel of kitty litter between their toes.
Every now and then, hide in a place where humans cannot find you. Do not come out for
three or four hours under any circumstances. This will cause the humans to panic (which they love)
thinking that you have run away or lost. Once you do come out, the humans will cover you with
love and kisses and you will probably get a treat.
More Rules On Being A Cat
1. Make the world your playground, fun is where you find it.
2. Whenever you make a mess, cover it up.
Dragging a sock over it helps.
3. If you can't get your way, lay across the keyboard till you do.
4. When you are hungry, meow loudly so they feed you just to shut you up.
5. Always find a good patch of sun to nap in, nap often.
6. When in trouble, just purr and look cute.
7. Life is hard, and then you nap.
8. When in doubt, cop an attitude.
9. Curiosity never killed anything, except maybe a few hours.
10. Variety is the spice of life. One day, ignore people; the next day, annoy them.
11. Climb your way to the top, that's why the curtains are there.
12. Make your mark in the world, or at least spray in each corner.
13. Always give generously; a bird or rodent left on the bed tells them, "I care."
ONE LAST THOUGHT:
Whenever possible, get close to a human, especially their face, then turn around, and present your
butt to them. Humans love this, so do it often. And don't forget guest.
