    What do you talk to your cats about?

    Do you converse with your cats?

    And what kind of conversations do you have?
    ---------------------------------
    I always ask the Edster questions like,

    "What am I going to do about......"

    Somehow - the conversations always seem to be around their comfort. Either that, or it involves complimenting them.

    Examples include:

    "Are you hungry?"

    "Aww - you are so cute."

    "What - no one's fed you yet? You poor thing, your ribs are poking out."

    "What? You want me to shake your food?"

    "Yes, we love YOU the best of all the kitties."

    These are not the droids you were looking for

    Usually, I ask one word, "What?" and its said in a sing-singy voice.

    Other conversations:
    I usually tell them they've already been fed.
    "Where's your brother?"
    of course I tell them how handsome they are and what good boys they are
    They also know what I mean when I tell them I'm opingin the door to the balcony

    Where's your sister or brother (depending on whom I speaking to at the time)

    Kisses for mom.

    Good Night, Mom Loves You, You were good (boy/girl) today. You sleep well, I see you in the morning.

    Mom's Home.

    I tell them where I'm going when I leave the house. They need to be good.

    Don't torment your sister/brother.

    Just general conversations.

    I have lots of conversations with my cats. As a matter of fact I'm talking to one or more of them all the time. Most of the time they go something like this...

    You're momma's baby and I love you so much...*smooch*

    Why do you always want me to pet you when I'm on the toilet?

    No I'm not opening the window...It's freezing outside!

    Who pooped on the floor?

    Leroy why do you make me yell at you for something right before you crawl into my lap?

    You are the most adorable furby in the whole world! *another smooch*

    This is said night after night after night after night....
    Why do you have to stick your nose in my plate? Do I stick my nose in your food when your trying to eat?

    Let’s see . . . there’s the standard mushy stuff:

    “Who’s Mommy’s good little pumpkin, huh?”
    “Rizzo . . .he’s such a pretty boy, is Rizzo….”
    “Awwww, does he want a hug? Can Mama pick you up? Gimme kissy!”

    And then there are the slightly less nauseating rhetorical questions:

    “Where’s that Daddy? You miss Daddy, dontcha?” (he’s not happy until we’re BOTH home)
    “Mommy’s not very bright, is she?” (after I have stubbed my toe or some such thing)
    “What do you think, Rizz? Should I clean or play computer games?”

    Statements on his character:

    “You’re really a good kitty. You know that, don’t you?”
    “You’re very strange, sweetheart.”
    “You are an obsession! You’re my obsession!” (the 80’s song “Obsession,” by goodness knows who, which I sing as I pick up his THREE seals and toss them back into the loft in the mornings!)

    And, in more exasperating moments:

    “Must you, Rizzo?”
    “Why do you run in front of me from out of nowhere? You like being kicked, don’t you?!”
    “No cats in the closet. No cats in Daddy’s sink. No cats in the closet….” (repeat as necessary, all morning while getting ready for work!)

    Politics of course!

    Nah, she doesn't understand that, so I pretty much talk to her about her food, how she sounds like a little baby goat sometimes, though that could be interpeted as politics? Hmmm, Grover is talking politics. Well anyway she sounds like a little baby goat when she answers certain questions.

    Thank You, kittycats_delight for my new siggy!!!

    I talk to my kitties all the time. Most of it is much too nauseating to type out here. Other times I just talk to them mindlessly and ask their opinion about what I should cook for dinner, ask for reasons why I should NOT get up and go exercise, sometimes I boohoo and tell them my troubles. They are terrific therapists. As for politics - of course their views are exactly like MINE and they are perfectly correct.

    I couldn't really spell what I talk to my kitties about. It is a very strange language, that they understand. It usually focuses on their well being, who loves them the most, and that they are just the absolute bestest kitty in the whole world!

    LOL! Ditto! I tell them they are the cutest cats in the whole world and I love them SOOOOOOOOOO MUCH! Bunches of Much Muches ....

    Of course, Mishi ALWAYS has to reply. He has his own special language and at times I think he thinks he's REALLY saying something to me .... perhaps he is?

    "Hey! When I wash down there, do I make YOU watch?"

    "Yes, I'd like to stay home and play with you, too. But I have to go to work so I can keep a roof over your head and food in your bowl."

    "C'mon, off the keyboard."

    "What is this? Just because I'm getting myself a treat, that means you get a treat too?" (He usually does.)

    And of course,

    "Mmm, I love you too."

    I keep asking one of my cats about the other.

    -Dallas, where is Dusty? Is he doing something naughty again?

    -Dusty, why is Dallas acting like a mental patient?

    -C'mon Dusty, I know Dallas was the one playing with my keys, just tell me where she hid them and I promise I won't punish her!
