Thread: Dear Patch

  1. #1

    Dear Patch

    Please stop eating the cabbage plants. They're much better when mature, trust me.

    I know you like to sit in the picture window and watch the swallows, but is it REALLY that difficult to get your fuzzy butt down from the window and walk over to the food bowl to get your snack?

    Maybe you should plant some skunk cabbage for him?

    What a silly hooman you are LH!

    Patch is trying to save you from having to eat cabbage! And for heaven's sake - don't you realize how important it so to stay on guard against the evill sparrows?? One moment of distraction and anything could happen.

    All these sacrifices for you and so little appreciation!

    We may have to get Groucho involved to get poor Patch the appropriate respect!

    Mac and Kimba both love to share my bunny's timothy hay with her. Some cats like a little green now and then.
    Proud to be a crazy cat lady!

    We appreciate Patch, we appreciate his mousing skills, he makes an awesome lapwarmer, and we show our appreciation by putting up with his banzai charges through the house.

    I wasn't aware that birds were such a threat, I'll have to reconsider.

    Dear Patch,

    Cassie agrees wholeheartedly with you. As a cat, yes, getting down from the window and going to the food bowl for a snack is optional. She would tell you that is Food Lady's (that's me) role... please serve my snack here, cos I'm not moving!

    Happy lap-warming! Hugs and lovies to you, Trillian and Lady
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    Cassie,
    Any helpful advice on training humans?

    Thanks in advance,

    Okay, I suppose this one is my fault.


    Sorta.

    But the humans KNOW I sneak out into the mudroom when they're not looking.

    But did you REALLY have to laugh at me hanging by my claws in the middle of the window?

    And Lady, you could have at LEAST gone to wake up the humans to lets them know I was out there instead of just staring at me.

  11. Patches! How many times do I have to tell you not to dart out the door without taking your cat phone with you?

    I wish I was fast enough with the camera at the time. I had discovered him. Lady was staring very intently at the door so I looked to see what she was looking at and there he was hanging from the middle part of the window pane looking very pathetic.
    RIP Lady, Thursday's won't be the same without you to cuddle with by the fire

    Now this is getting absolutely silly.

    Patch, no matter how many times you jump up to the window of the door and look out hanging by your claws, you're NOT going outside.

    No matter how pathetic you look at us after you fall down.

    Oh, Patch! The world outside is simply not safe for fluffy bright-colored kitties! There's stuff out there that would eat you for lunch - never mind the cars that wouldn't see you in time to stop!

    Dear Patch,

    I taught my food lady to give me a kitty treat on the kitchen rug. I stood there and looked at her with the "I'm hungry" look, and she just couldn't resist. Now I have her trained - if I go to that spot and meow, she knows to serve me a treat. I also taught her how to give me catnip or kitty grass when we had those growing on the windowsill. When she would water them, I would hop up on the chair next to the window and meow, so she would offer me catnip or kitty grass. Now, I hop up there and meow when I want her to give me dried catnip. Didn't take long to train her at all. I think the meowing has helped, but she definitely responds to the Look, too. Try them both and see what you think.


    Purrs and head bumpies,
    Cassie


    p.s., I used to be an outside kitty. Inside is much better.
