Fundamental Friday

I can see snow outside, so Junior, you didn't win the When When contest.


I have recently discovered "The Cat's Bill of Rights." I know you'll want to see it, so here it is:


I am the cat, and I have certain inalienable rights:
  • I have the right to walk over your face anytime I wish, day or night.
  • I have the right to observe and comment on any and all bathroom behavior. Further, I have the right to be highly offended by any closed door.
  • I have the right to smell your shoes to determine if you have been fraternizing or cavorting or frolicking with any highly questionable animals.
  • I have the right to assist in any food preparation, cooking, cleaning or eating event that may occur in the home.
  • I have the right to wake you at three in the morning if I find my food dish not to my satisfaction.
  • I have the right to tip over any water container I deem unsuitable for consumption.
  • I have the right to curse at squirrels and birds that may dare to pass my windows.
  • I have the right to inspect any grocery items that come into the home. Further, I have the right to inhabit any paper bag or cardboard box that you bring home for as long as I wish.
  • I have the right to nap at any time and place I darn well please, without the distraction of being called or moved just because you want to sit down, wash your hands or use your computer keyboard.
  • I have the right to sleep on top of any appliance that is warm.
  • I have the right to assist in any changing of bed linens and to chase the phantom creatures that hide beneath the sheets.
  • I have the right to look aloof when scolded for mistaking your toes for one of those pesky phantom creatures that hide beneath the sheets.
  • I have the right to kill paper-towel rolls that otherwise might sneak up on you at night.
  • I have the right to your complete attention anytime you sit down to read or work.
  • And finally, I have the right to be loved petted, pampered and entertained, for, as you know, the best things in life ... Purr.
  • And should you err in your ways, I will graciously forgive. After all, you are only human, but I love you anyway.

Bummer!!!!!! I was so hoping to win a contest. I guess I could have shared the prizes with the visitor in my home...had I won. Ah well, I will just have to send Meowm to the store instead.

That's still a lot of snow, and my guess is for Monday - it's not looking good (I'll be purring for a heatwave!).
