The Ten Commandments for Cats

1. Thou shalt not feed me the same food twice.

2. Thou shalt not tell me what to do.

3. Thou shalt not sit in my chair without my permission, ever.

4. Thou shalt not take me to the vet in a cardboard box.

5. Thou shalt not feed the birds until I have positioned myself under a bush.

6. Thou shalt not buy a dog with teeth and claws.

7. Thou shalt not rev up the car whilst I am under it.

8. Thou shalt not put a lid on the goldfish bowl.

9. Thou shalt not buy furniture that I cannot ruin.

10. Thou shalt obey the above or I shall piddle in places you will never find.

I have spoken!

Hi Robyn ~~ This is a good list, and I have seen it before.
Thanks for your comments on my old photos. We were such cute little kids, pity what happened in the
intervening years. I am glad it has been a bit warmer for you. But my doors and windows are definitely shut, most of the time. It seems 3 on a horse is a popular photo with others as well. Take care, my friend, Love, Merle.

It's either rev up the car or squish a cat. They'll have to forgive me.

Alex must be 100% cat: he has spoke all of those commandments except about feeding the birds—Alex has yet to learn to hunt anything except the vulnerable parts of my body.

It's a long time since I've heard these commandments Robyn, only coz its a long time since I've had a cat, but if my memory serves me they are all correct.

Yep, my kitty agrees with every one of those !!
Although, I DO have a lid on the fishtank, and she is not impressed !!
Take care, Meow
