Something's Up

I knew something was up the other day when the Mom was teaching the Dad to give me my pills, but I was too distracted at the time by him trying to stuff the darn thing down my throat.

This morning, the Mom pulled out the Luggage and started packing. This is a bad sign. It means that she's going away, which is a Bad Thing. When I ventured out of the closet to confirm my suspicions, she explained that she needed a vacation and was going to visit my grandparents down in Florida.

She did say that the Dad would be staying home to take care of us. Great. I like the Dad, but he's just not the Mom. He doesn't know how to keep the Brats off my turf and feed me the Stinky Goodness when I'm supposed to get it. What's worse? He doesn't like cleaning the Stinky Pan. Well, I don't blame him 'cause the Brats make a huge mess but he better clean it every day like the Mom does. Bah. I just hope that the Mom completes his education or else it's going to be a long week.

Our dad just got back from Phee-nix. He went on "business" not vacation, but he still came home with that thing people get when they're in the sun too much. Yeah, suntan. So he must not have been doing too much work. Hope your mom trains the dad ok.

Dads...ugh. They may be good for cuddling, but not much else.

As for the infrequent scooping? Ask him how he'd feel going in a toilet that hasn't been flushed for a week!

You must take over the role of the Lady of the House while the Mom is away. Look at at this as your chance to rearrange everything just the way you want it!

HEY, our dad went to Florida to visit his grandparents too? How strange. Do all grandparents live in Florida??

You simply must help her pack as only we cats can. Sit in the suitcase. Sit beside it looking pitiful. Hawk a hairball near it just before she leaves. And be sure to mark her as YOURS so she doesn't accidentally get dopted by another cat!
