    Okay...Gonna use this thread to ask another dumb owner question about my kittens. We finally sprouted our tub o' wheat grass for them. Grew nice and tall. Cats love to rip it out of the tub. And...that's it.

    They rip it and leave it. All. Over. The. Place.

    Aren't they supposed to EAT this stuff? My friend's cat devours this stuff. I'll take scissors and cut up blades into their dinner - which they'll eat. But as far as actually consuming it from the plant on their own...they haven't grasped the concept yet. Zoe is closer to it than Paris (who is an idiot...love him to pieces..but he's not the sharpest knife in the drawer). But if I don't dice it up for even Zoe, she won't eat it. Their little meat-eating teeth just don't work on the plants (even the parsley I've been giving them...gotta cut it up).

    Is this a trick they learn or what?
    Mine have never had a problem eating off of any plant in my house. Including plastic ones. But all three of them were outside cats at one point, and two were born feral. So I might not have the best example.

    LOL!

    Izzy's favorites are the aforementioned Amazon box, plastic bags (which we tie in a knot for her safety, my ponytail bands, and empty edamame shells. She has a basket full of toys she totally ignores.

    My last cat dearly loved the belt from my robe. I finally gave in like the good trained woman I am and allowed her to have it. She just looked adorable dragging that thing all over the apartment Yeah, it was a lot more fun for her than those toys I bought her

    Dear junior cat,

    Last night that pie was sitting uncovered on the kitchen counter so that it could cool off-- it wasn't there for you to eat. You're lucky the pie was just a test-drive of a new recipe, and not something about to be taken somewhere. It would have been hard to explain away little cat teeth marks...

    But we're in agreement, that was a fantastic pie crust.

    Dear Chloe,
    Why are you fixated on playing with the bathroom sink's plug? Bringing to bed after you dropped it in your litter box was not exactly what I wanted to wake up with. I know you like to bring your toys to bed, but that?! Now that I've cleaned it, the sink, and the floor, would you please leave it alone? You have a basket full of toys, where is squirrel, hedgie, or mouse?

    (and good luck finding the plug now, muhahaha)

    Dear D@mmit Cat:
    I would be more than happy to share my cheese and summer sausage with you if I thought you planned on digesting it, but you've already reached your vomit quota for the week.

    However, thanks for returning the Wii controller so I can watch Netflix again!

    (PS - your stomach might feel better if you stopped eating out of the trash. Just sayin.)

    Dear Cat,
    There are two bowls with water in them. When one bowl is empty you can drink from the other bowl. They both have the exact same substance in them. You don't have to meow at me, just step 3 inches to your right and, look! more water!
    Thank you.

    Dear Cat,

    I realize now that you have a penthouse somewhere that you retire to when our abode is no longer to your liking, since you disappeared on New Year's Eve in the pouring rain, leaving your food and a set of worried owners behind, and reappeared in the wee hours dry, warm, calm and content, and most surprisingly, not hungry. I will endeavour to no longer worry about you when you do stuff like that.

    PS. Do drop by every now and then, we're fond of you.

    Dear Lulu,

    We know you are smart but you are still a CAT. "C", "A", "T" CAT. We never taught you to use people toilet but my partner spied on you squatting on the toilet seat and peed into the toilet. I don't know how you figured it out but you did.

    then it occurred to us that you might be the culprit for pee smell around the toilet. You seem to have missed on few occasions. Yuck!

    Both of us would prefer that you stick with your litter box. Or if you continue to use people toilet, to please pee in the toilet not on it. And BTW, it would be nice if you could flush it when you are done.

    Thank you,

    Your proud mama.

    One of mine is more than happy to flush but will not use. Skunk is fascinated by watching things go down the hole and now knows what makes that happen. I have to leave the lid shut to keep her away.

    (Also, pretty sure dumdum plays in the toilet if I leave it open, based on the mess I've found.)

    So Paris likes to drink from the bathroom faucet.
    And the cats sleep on our bed at night.
    Around 3:15 this morning, Paris decides he's thirsty.
    So rather than walking down the hallway to his waterbowl, pounces on yours truly. Literally. All 13 pounds of him. I must have felt him walking up the bed, because I opened my bleary eyes just in time to see a black blob coming down on me from a height of about 18".
    I lay there for about a minute. Shock. Confused. Finally, I decide, "Well, I'm awake. I may as well do what I do every time I wake up at 3 in the morning." So I go to the bathroom, and there is Paris, sitting on the sink, waiting for me.
    Purrrrrrr.....A purr, a prance, and a paw at the sink bowl. Awww...Isn't he just so cute. Not.

    Hmmm...it was sort of this last night.
