Thursday Thirteen

(We were unable to be online at all yesterday due to there being only 1/2 power at the Woman's work place and all of the computers were down all day long)

Thirteen Reasons Why I am Grumpy this Winter
by Chase

1. The Awesome Man does not allow me to throw my weight into him and purr all of the time. He says he doesn't want to get all haired up or knocked over.

2. That little rat Kaze thinks she can pretend to be my friend and attempt to snuggle with me.

3. Its so cold Out of Doors that even the squirrels seem to be hibernating. This means there is nothing for me to stare at in the mornings so I just sleep in.

4. The couch was thoroughly vacuumed and you know how I hate that machine. It was on far too long and sucked up too many of my furs.

5. The store who sells MY FOOD is going out of business. How am I supposed to eat??? The Woman says she'll go to another store but our food isn't sold at Petsmart or Petco (we eat Innova Evo).

6. The humans are going away next week to Quebec to go skiing. That means I have to put up with two needy meezers and one Gamma feeding us. That's not so bad though, she tends to give me extra food and forget about the "diet".

7. Did I mention I live with Kaze? Target practice sure is fun but her ear piercing screams and smack-smacks to my nose are not my idea of a great time.

8. Apparently visitors think its fun to poke me? I don't poke them when they are sleeping.

9. Can you believe the humans open doors and let the freezing cold air inside?? And then have the audacity to keep it only 65 degrees in the house when they aren't here?

10. Latte gets me kicked out of the sleeping room with his nightly whapping tactics.

11. Far too many times I've been told to "Get out of the sink!" The sink is a great napping place with an unlimited supply of refreshing beverages should I get thirsty. I prefer letting it drip on my side and then licking it off.

12. OK, the litter boxes are RIPE. You have to change those Breeze pads more than once a week when you have 3 cats using them.

13. I'm sick of the humans whining. This should be a whine free zone. I don't care if your computer company has royally screwed you or you're dying to hear from law schools. Both of you humans need to shut up and remember what is most important: ME.

Doood...strange people poke at you? Bite a finger off! That'll teach 'em!

Gemini and Ichiro said...

You know that stuff makes me grumpy too.

meemsnyc said...

We agree with the whine free zone. Our beans are whiners too. :)

Ya wanna move here? We are makin a Meezer colony.

Tama-Chan, Gen-Chan, Vidock, Violette, Ollie, Hotesse & Heloise said...

It sounds like you certainly have your priorities right, Chase. It is also clear that you lead a very hard life and need rescuing. Shall we send Tama-Chan over?

Your Pals,
Tom and Tama-Chan

Man, it suks to be yoo. Boo hoo hoo. Act like a mancat and stop pikking on Kaze. She is purrfekt, and that's all I'm gonna say.

Ramses said...

Sounds like you need to remind the Awesome Man who's in charge Chase... I too have issues, take for instance the fact that Daddy's been kissing MY Mummy! He even does it when I'm watching him... I think he'll get a good shove outta bed tonight! ;)


Angel Junior, Orion and Sammy said...

Okay Chase~~

#1-If you are knocking the AM over when you throw your weight into him---maybe he should bulk up a bit. And to be on the receiving end of your purrs and hair is an honor...he needs to remember that.

#2-Doesn't Kaze's body offer a little warmth?

#4-We hate the sucky monster too!


#6-A break from the diet is the best...need we say more?

#7-We only get ear piercing screams when Meowm tries to sing.

#8-Bring out your claws of doom and poke them right back!

#11-Get out of the sink? How dare they? The sink is prime real estate for cats!

#12-We don't have the Breeze system, but we understand about ripe litterboxes.

#13-Cats, in general, are most important!

Dude, all very good points. I vote we all mutiny. MUTINY, I say!

Cliff and Olivia said...

And to top it all. It's WINTER! We have no (big) problems with the humans (other than the male one spending too much time away from home) or the temperature. But besides that we know how you feel.

Sunny's Mommy said...

Wow! No wonder you're grumpy. It's pretty bad what you have to put up with :(

Boy n Beethoven said...

Poor Chase! You do put up with a lot!
Mine Mummy gotted a canon EOS 350D. Not her first choice (she prefers nikon), but she got it cheap because the guy who had it gave up photography and is moving back to Hong Kong.


Just Ducky said...

Oh noes, the food store is closing???? HELP. Plus if the guests poke you, poke them back.
