Greetings to all our friends and fellow feline lovers, far and wide! Today is Saturday, and it’s a bright and beautiful summer day here in Texas, U.S.A. The Cats have been shedding their winter fur, becoming more sleek and silky, as they prepare for those lazy hazy days!
They always anticipate summer, because it quite suits their nature….For humans, summertime is a season of activity ~ vacation, travel, and excitement. For The Cats, however, it is a time of pleasurable extended snoozes during long sunny afternoons…They particularly enjoy having the house to themselves while their humans are away.
It’s been recently brought to the attention of the humans in this household (better known as the STAFF, according to The Cats) that in order to keep The Cats happy and satisfied at all times it is imperative that any and every door in the household must be kept open if possible. The Cats are aware that sometimes it is necessary to close the door while the humans (STAFF) are dressing, showering, etc., but otherwise it is preferred that all doors are open.
Keeping the doors open allows The Cats to move freely between all rooms, and they also may choose to pause in any and every doorway, which is a favorite pastime of The Cats, as everyone is aware. The Cats have found that standing in a doorway helps to clear the mind and give opportunity to re-think the choices presented: shall I walk through, or turn around? Will walking through this doorway enrich my life, or should I ponder the situation more closely? What are my options, and how will they ultimately affect my life?
This will keep The Cats happy and satisfied throughout the summer days, so that their blissful summer experience is maintained at its richest and most rewarding level. The naps will be more restful, and there will be less worry, less anxiety to provoke them, since open doorways will be available at all times for pondering life’s mysteries…
In closing, may we wish everyone a wonderful summer, and remember, as Mr. Beautiful says, that “…if The Cats ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy!”
Love it! Written by a person who knows cats! Well done, Becky. I love your sense of humor and deep insights into the mind of your cats.
Thank you so much for your compliment, Adele! I’ve learned the hard way that THE CATS find it NECESSARY to their well being that all doors are kept open at all times. I know that you, too, are compelled to comply as well!
This is so good. I know your cats are going to remind you angrily if you do not follow their wishes. Gail
So glad you liked it, Gail! Yes, I’m afraid I’m their slave. I know exactly what they want! And that I’d better provide it or else….
