We have two cats, strays that have adopted us or vice versa. One stays in at night mostly and the other, depending on the weather, stays out at night mostly. In the morning, we feed the indoor cat and let him out. In comes the outside cat for her breakfast. I call the passing of one cat by the other the changing of the cats. It reminds me of the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, London, England.

Took one of our cats to the vet for treatment of a cat bite he received from another dominant cat in our neighborhood. With treatment and a prescription for pain and antibiotics, the bill was about $125.00. I jokingly told my wife that we need a new government entitlement program for cats I would call Medi-cat. I wonder if Mitt would support it for cats belonging to the 47%?

Keeper of the cats

My wife is our keeper of the cats, and I am substituting for her while she visits family in Ontario. She left written instructions, and now I am the keeper of the cats for nine days and nights.

Here a bowl of dry cat food
There a bowl of wet cat food
Here a bowl of fresh water
There a bowl of fresh water
Everywhere a cat or cat litter
Gary likes to drink from a running tap
Little Foo prefers stagnant rain water
Old MacDonald had a cat
His mice were sure to play
Everywhere that Sharen went
Her cats were sure to follow
But they refused to fly
No shoe removal or pat down for them.
So here I remain
Cats to the left of me
Cats to the right of me
Here in the valley of the cats.

Hot cat

One of our cats, Gary, likes to explore strange new places, to go where no cat has gone before. He is now spending time in our front loading clothes dryer both before and after we use it. My wife and I must now exercise extra care when drying clothes so that Gary is not caught with the wash accidentally. I tell my wife we must guard against Gary’s curiosity, or there’ll be a hot cat in the old town tonight.

Keeping track

We have two cats, Gary and Foo, and they are in and out all day. Since the government is starting to track cell phone users, I suggested to my wife that we give each cat a cell phone and insist that they carry them with them at all times. That way we will know where they are at all times if the government will share that information with us. I have my doubts.
