Public Service Announcement-
The kittens have won the Spring Competition of the Lap Cat Wars. Buttons (who rigged the competition by generously paying off the
judges) is not a happy camper. She is currently searching the rule books (being herself the writer of them) to find a loop hole. She has been
heard muttering under her breath, "Why do I have to follow the rules if I wrote them?" The kittens are proclaiming, "We are innocent!! We
cannot help it if we are more adorable than Buttons!!"
We will let the public decide. Here are some photos to help in your decision:
Cassie Lane, Oh Mighty Guardian of the Bathroom:
For reasons that are a mystery to us Cassie Lane has claimed
ownership of the living room bathroom. She sits patiently in the
doorway waiting for any visitors for most of the day and has even been
caught on guard duty in the middle of the night. As the picture shows
one cannot use this bathroom with out allowing Cassie to accompany
them. While on the comode the person has to pet Cassie and tell her
how beautiful she is. If she does not get let in the bathroom then she
will cry outside the door and dig until given entrance. She will even do
this with strangers so we have to explain the situation to guests. If
they feel uncomfortable with her starring at them while taking care of
business they have to use another bathroom not guarded by her. We
feel this is only fair as it is HER bathroom and she has made the rules
very clear. She, after all, is very giving to allow us to use the bathroom
at all. Visitors you have been forewarned. ;o}
Results of the Summer Competition of the Lap Cat Wars.
Results of the Fall Competition of the Lap Cat Wars. This season we are spot lighting some of our new, up and coming breeders. Most
of our older queens were busy with raising kittens so it gave the younger girls a chance to gain points.
The following information may come as a shock to most of you and seem scandalous to the rest of you. But there is no way around it, it
must be said. The cats are still trying to come to terms with it all, really, so don’t feel too bad.
A dog has won the winter competition of the Lap Cat Wars!!!!
OK so you say, “How can this be? A dog the winner?” Yes, it is true. We are trying to not embarrass the cats by rubbing it in. The panel of
judges have made a final decision. Maybe you will agree after you read the following letter from a customer.
Customer Letter- I would like to write-in an entry for the Lap Wars. I didn't see any Rules and Regulations, so I hope I can write-in a dog.
I've attached a picture of Valen and my 40 lb Belgian Malinois, Spicy, both trying to go for the gold. The reason I want to nominate Spicy is
Valen was actually on my lap first. Spicy, jealous yet nimble girl that she is, climbed up one foot at a time to gain the upper hand on my lap
and managed to not dislodge Valen. I'll leave it up to the judges.
I'm sending the other picture in case you decide to have a Blue Eye contest. Judging from the pictures of your entire cattery, it would be
close, but I still want Valen to enter. His eyes are actually a bit darker now, and they look like they're lit from within. At least they appear
to be when he's still enough so I can see them. Actually, I saw them quite well the other morning when he was up on my bathroom counter
(okay, I put him up there so he could watch the water drip), and he decided to put his foot in my coffee cup, then flicker it so the mirror and
counter were covered in coffee droplets. I wasn't done with my coffee up until that point. From the litter box to my mouth...
We had a little "incident" recently that involved a candle jar, Valen's head and some soot that's pretty darn hard to get off. As soon as he
stops looking like Groucho Marx, I'll send updated pictures.
Hope all is well with you and your family, both two and four footed.
Editors Note- Sadly this is the final edition of the Lap Cat Wars. Buttons, the instigator of the wars, has been retired and is living a comfy
life as an only cat. She no longer has to share laps and as you might guess is enjoying being the center of attention.
Greta's kittens went to the prom. They had lots of fun. As you can see they dressed up quite nicely. The boys were perfect gentlemen
and the girls were the bells of the ball. They ate too much, danced every dance, laughed until they cried, stayed up past their bedtime,
slept in late the next day and were cranky in the morning. What a time!!
