Letter From Your Cat

I received a letter from your cat.

Thank you for adopting me. Even though we are different in many ways, we both want love and appreciation.

Please let me come to you when I want attention. Like you, I feel afraid when affection is forced upon me or when unwanted “friends” (feline or otherwise) move into our house. We both like to be offered choices in what we eat, drink and use in the bathroom (litter for me, TP for you). And speaking of bathrooms, we both like them private and clean. Imagine having to depend on someone else to flush and clean your toilet when they feel like it.

We both like hunting for food. For you, it’s that great new restaurant. For me it’s prowling our house in search of prey. Toys that dispense food when I can play with them are fun.

We both need to keep our nails in shape. You can get yours done; I need to do my own, so I need a good place to scratch. Praise me lavishly for using the scratching post and show me places not to scratch by putting foil or sticky tape on them. 

You know how we really don’t love going to the doctor but know we need to? If one of my resting places also is a nice cat carrier, taking me to the veterinarian for my annual checkup will be a lot less stressful for both of us.

I hope this helps you understand how much we have in common and how easy it is for you to show me you love me as I love you.
