Cats, Cats, More Cats
Yep. There's a cat there, all right. Nested within the toe-kick space, right on top of the heat register! And not too far from Little Stuffed Eeyore, in case he happens to need an occasional whuppin'.
And here we see the other household feline, winning at the game of one-upmanship: why settle for settling onto a heat register, when you can hop into the clothes dryer right at the end of a cycle? Not just toasty warm — fluffy, too!
While we're on the subject of toasty warm and fluffy towels, what better bed for a weeks-old kitten to have? Especially a Devon Rex that's not known for having a very full coat of fur even when fully grown?
"Wow! Seven and a half ounces already?! I'm really packin' on the weight! Must be those eyedropper feedings of special formula every few hours! Can't wait 'til I'm big enough to gnaw on fish heads!
So, big deal! You've got your little Pocket Pooch that travels about in that knock-off Gucci bag of yours. I'll have you know I'm not so snobbish. Any old paper sack or plastic bag works fine for me! (And we won't have to be picking up anything I leave lying around, either!)
And if you aren't busy toting me around in a sack, or reaching for the penlight, or opening a can of tuna, or letting me loll around in the dryer, or cleaning that litter pan, or swishing that feather on a stick, or letting me curl up on your bed, then just what are you doing for me? Hey, you're the one that brought me home, now deal with me!
And don't think you can just get away with keeping that other cat occupied! I was here long before that other fuzzy fiend arrived, and I expect my share of attention, too! (And, I'll tell you right now, I'm not so easily satisfied. You're going to have to put in some work.)
Well, we've got to give you your props, after all. You managed to put in the effort, and have finally got us watered and fed and catnipped and cuddled and all tuckered out and ready for another 20 hours or so of snoozing. Don't mind us if we nod off . . .
Wait. Don't tell me you're considering another cat?
