Guest Post: Tips for the Cat-Owned

Hi. I’m Nezumi, the Technical Supervisor and Mascot of this blog.

This blog is about improving yourself and enjoying life, and a lot of other things too, but I notice that the two-legged authoress has missed a few topics. She writes about health, and nature, and thoughts, and all manner of things. She writes about cooking, but has she ever written about the wonders of canned food?  How about pillows, petting gloves, or other things of interest to we Cats?

I don’t think so.  So I”m going to fix that!

Get a blender

I’ll have you know that for Cats with sore teeth, like I sometimes have, a great thing to do for your four legged monarch is to use a blender. It softens up the food, mixes it nicely, and makes it easy for us to eat. We also really like Kibble Stew, which is what you get when you pour water over kibble. Bonus points are in order if you put some crunchy treats in there too, to soften up nicely.

Try lettuce

If your fluffy queen or king likes grass but keeps eating all of their wheat grass, perhaps you should use your thumbs to get into the refrigerator and get them a nice leaf of Romaine lettuce. It tastes a lot like our favorite grasses, doesn’t make us puke, and lets us chew to our hearts content.

MORE PETTINGS!

Also, many of us are tickled or irritated by brushes. So how about a petting glove? They make it feel even more like Mom is grooming us, and helps get rid of loose hair while we enjoy a full body massage. Every two legged should have at least three petting gloves.

Better pillows

I need to remember to tell my two legged that she needs to let me sleep on the keyboard more often. Or at least let me rest my head on the edge. The part where the control key is makes a good pillow. And computers are warm, just right for snuggling against on a cold day. But two leggeds should clean out the fans frequently, because my lovely hair clogs up computer vents and makes them overheat. People with thumbs can get rid of this easily.

Remember your history

In Egypt, Cats were sometimes worshipped as gods and goddesses.  Even when we weren’t, we were still valued members of the family.  In old Persia, we were highly regarded.  In Thailand, we are still known as temple Cats.  People have made us mayors, train stationmistresses, security officers, and even police.  So when you meet a Cat, treat them with respect!

What’s the password?

I might write more tips for people who are cat-owned, if I can figure out my two legged’s password. I’m sure she’s about to change it!

How to make your Human move off your chair

When your human is sitting in your chair and you want to sleep in it, it cna be difficult to get them to move.  Luckily, there is a strategy.  As a good and cunning cat, here’s what you do.
1. Meow, look at them cutely, ask for pettings.
2. Meow some more, move over to the couch.  Gesture at them to follow.
3. When human moves to couch, meow and accept pettings. It’s best to reward your human for good behavior.
4. Hop up on your chair while it’s still warm, and fall asleep. Your human will be fine on the couch.
