The really great thing about cats is their endless variety. One can pick a cat to fit almost any kind of décor, color scheme, income, personality, or mood. But under the fur, whatever color it may be, there still lies, essentially unchanged, one of the world’s free souls."
- Eric Gurney


When I was sixteen, my mom made me read Just Wait Until You Have Children of Your Own by Erma Bombeck. I laughed back then, never intending to have children myself. I still don't have any, unless you count pets as children (which I do). However the responsibilities are the same, the cost is the same, the frustrations are the same... the only difference is that animals can't talk. But, once in a while I imagine what would happen if they could...

"I can train any dog in five minutes. It's training the owner that takes longer."

"My dog hates me." My younger sister says, opening the door to her apartment. 

I enter, looking around for the puppy. Moments earlier, Meggin had summoned me to her apartment, convinced that her new puppy was dying from some incurable disease.

"She was dying an hour ago." I reply sarcastically. "Besides, puppies are incapable of hate. Where is she?"

Meggin motioned under the desk, and sure enough I could see a small black bundle of fur curled underneath.

Dear Dogs,

In an effort to better manage the peaceful nature of our residence, I have prepared a list of counterproductive behaviors that I have observed you participating in. Please take a moment to review and memorize the following items of concern. (Please note that the cats’ list of counterproductive behavior has already been posted). Thank you for your help on this matter.

With love,

"The Humans"

Guarding Food:

Guarding your food from members of the household is counterproductive. If you’ll recall, I was the one who gave you the food, and I will retain the power to take it away. Walking past you while you eat is not a direct threat, sometimes it is necessary for me to do in order to reach the door. There is no reason to growl, snarl, bare your teeth, or hunker over the bowl.  If I wanted to take your food away from you, I would not have given it to you to begin with.
