PET RULES

To be posted VERY LOW on the refrigerator door - nose height.

Dear Dogs and Cats,
The dishes with the paw prints are yours and contain your food. The other dishes are mine and contain my food. Please note, placing a paw print in the middle of my plate of food does not stake a claim for it becoming your food and dish, nor do I find that aesthetically pleasing in the slightest.

The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack.
Beating me to the bottom is not the object. Tripping me doesn't help because I fall faster than you can run.

I cannot buy anything bigger than a king sized bed. I am very sorry about this. Do not think I will continue sleeping on the couch to ensure your comfort. Dogs and cats can actually curl up in a ball when they sleep. It is not necessary to sleep perpendicular to each other stretched out to the fullest extent possible. I also know that sticking tails straight out and having tongues hanging out the other end to maximize space is nothing but sarcasm.

For the last time, there is not a secret exit from the bathroom. If by some miracle I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it is not necessary to claw, whine, meow, try to turn the knob or get your paw under the edge and try to pull the door open. I must exit through the same door I entered. Also, I have been using the bathroom for years --canine or feline attendance is not mandatory.

The proper order is kiss me, then go smell the other dog or cat's butt. I cannot stress this enough!

To pacify you, my dear pets, I have posted the following message on our front door:

To All Non-Pet Owners Who Visit & Like to Complain About Our Pets

1. They live here. You don't.
2. If you don't want their hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture. (That's why they call it 'fur'niture.)
3. I like my pets a lot better than I like most people.
4. To you, it's an animal. To me, he/she is an adopted son/daughter who is short, hairy, walks on all fours and doesn't speak clearly.

Remember: Dogs and cats are better than kids because they:
1. Eat less
2. Don't ask for money all the time
3. Are easier to train
4. Usually come when called
5. Never drive your car
6. Don't hang out with drug-using friends
7. Don't smoke or drink
8. Don't worry about having to buy the latest fashions
9. Don't wear your clothes
10. Don 't need a gazillion dollars for college, and
11. If they get pregnant, you can sell their children

Oh my gosh, my dog and cat do all that stuff. My dopey cat will even sit at our one sink that drips and stick his head under it and let it drip on him! I thought cats hated water! He doesn't drink it, he likes it to make him wet!

Thanks for the great laugh!:rofl:

I definately agree with "they live here, you don't!"

I totally agree with all the notes to people who complain about pets. I don't even have any furries yet!
1) I love cats even though I'm allergic. People freak out when they learn this and their cats are around. I'm a big girl. If your cat is bothering me, I can shoo him away or ask you to keep him in another room while I am there. I am not playing with him simply because I don't know better, or don't have the will power to get rid of him.
2) If my mom EVER comes over to my (future) home and complains about anything in relation to my animals, she will not be invited back. I love her, but we have very different lifestyles. I've lived her way for 20 years. If she can't live mine for 20 minutes, I'll come visit her.
3) People ask why I want pets and not kids. Next time, I'm sending them list #3!

That's hilarious! I love it. My cat always slips her paw under the bathroom door and pulls on it. It's actually quite scary when you're home alone in the shower!

I haven't taken a shower by myself for 2 years. Our little Itchy thinks the best game ever is to barge his way into the bathroom and paw and the shower curtain. It is cute at 10 am, not so much at 6am. And he lets out all the nice hot steam, so it's COLD in there every day!:pout:

I loved this, too funny...

but no line about a habit my one cat had... she'd wait for us to be walking out of the shower and then nip and lick at the tendon at the back of our ankles. Apparently I've met other people with cats that do this too... something about grooming?

Anyhow... thankfully now I have one of those very nonchalant cats... with two children and all... its all good!

Those two totally describe me!! And the answer I want to give to some "friends" and family members' who don't get it. MY CATS ARE TO ME WHAT YOUR KIDS ARE TO YOU!

I fall faster than you can run!!! OMG How true!! I have a cat that thinks it is his job to wind between my legs while I walk. He won't do it while I'm standing still. He waits for me to walk and he will do it all the way down the hall. I have a huge bruise on my elbow today from where he nearly tripped me yesterday and I banged my elbow into the edge of a door. He then looks at me indignantly like I did something to him that caused him to stop doing something he thought I needed.

Have you read something called "The Diary of the Cat" and "the Diary of the Dog"? One of my prof's has it posted, I assume its somewhere online. One of the Cat's diary entries is about winding through the legs of the humans. Its hilarious, especially if you read both together. I'll see if I can find it and post the link when I get a chance.
