So this foster kitten girl showed up. But she hisses and growls all the time. Mom said it is ok for us to smack her a little to teach her “the way of the cat”. But normally all we hear is “stop that” when we try to smack foster kittens. Now what???
Well…yeah, normally people don’t want the cats smacking each other and getting all hissy and growly, but with kittens, it’s important. If a kitty left its mom before learning how to cat, they turn into Buddah Pest. No idea of boundaries or etiquette. He was taken from his mom before he learned the right things, and if I hadn’t gotten sick when I did, I would have taught him the right things, and sometimes to do that you have to lay a smackdown on a kitty.
By the time I was feeling better, Buddah was too big to teach. So teach that kitty now, while you can. Pin her down and sit on her and tell her what’s what. But if you have to nip, nip gently.
Dear Max, I sniffed my papa’s underpants after he went on a long bike ride and left them on the floor. My eyes watered and my mouth drooled and I heard the sound of angels like in a slow motion echo machine and the whole world went swirly. I think I want to try it again. Is that bad?
Oh man, dood…your dad must be eating catnip and sweating it out. That’s the only explanation there is for his unmentionables to do that to you. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it, but draw the line at licking them. Because, well, people excrete some really nasty stuff, and you don’t want to be ingesting that.
Speaking of sniffing underpants, Max, I is ashamed to say that one of mine brofurs (and you know who are “Poosie”) likes to LAY in the mom’s underpants when she takes them off to take a bath. now granted, they’re not THAT stinky because she changes them at the gym after she werks out, but dood, that’s still kind of gross, don’t you think?
Holy carpoli, another human eating catnip? It has to be.
And yeah it’s gross and I wouldn’t do it, but heck, as long as he’s not nomming on her underthingies…
Oh man, I’m getting a little queasy just thinking of all the panty-sniffing and licking and chit that must be going on out there.
MAX OH MAN MAX HELP! THE STICKY PERSON IS CRAWLING! WHAT DO I DO?
Hide, dood. Run fast, and hide.
Max, we watched My Cat From Hell on TV last night and we loved it! Do you know Jackson Galaxy? Is he as awesome as I think he is?
Naw, man, I’ve never had the pleasure of meeting him. That would require me going outside, and I don’t like outside. Plus, I don’t know how to drive and I’m pretty sure he lives far enough away that I would need to be able to do that. But yeah, Jackson Galaxy is DA BOMB! I always sit on the Woman’s lap when she watches, so that I can make sure she pays attention to the things he tells people on his show. There are stuffs people need to learn, and if they just LISTEN to him, they’ll actually learn.
Sometimes people learn the not-quite-the-point things, though. Like, the Woman? She learned that she wants more tattoos. Go figure.
Max my man, I heard from my female minion that a dood friend of yours has been stricken with The Di-uh-beet-eez. Since I’m a fat little fart myself and my minions are worried about that happening to me, perhaps you can shed some light. What can your diabetic friend expect? Now, I know you’re not a doctor even though you’re a fan of THE Doctor, but you know people. Perhaps the experienced can chime in and offer some words of comfort, experience, and the like? ~ :kisses: ~ Vader
Cripes, dood, I’ve asked you before to not kiss me. Sheesh. You have dog breath and you always miss my cheek and kiss me on the nose. It’s gross.
And yeah…Friends, I have a mutual buddy who was just diagnosed with diabetes, but frankly, I don’t know much about feline diabetes. I only know a little bit about people diabetes, and that’s only from hearing my people talk about it. The Woman and Vader’s MOM (Manually Operated Minion) were discussing the topic in general, but apparently don’t know about Google and such things, so they didn’t have much to add beyond hoping that my bud is all right.
So if you have experience with it, please chime in. I really like my buddy (his name is Wendell but his person annoys him by calling him Bruce) and want his transition to be as easy as possible. And maybe there are kitties out there reading who are going through the same thing.
