Oh, ya, he even hit me when I bit him. Oh, he didn't hit very hard, a good swift paw from me is a lot harder than he can hit. Next time he tries to stop me from doing something, I will give him one hard slap that he won't forget, I'll use my claws next time. I just can't wait for him to try to stop me again. He'll know what for! Just let him try!!
Now folks, here's the problem as I see it. When dad was working all day, it was just me and the Meesh here. In case you don't know, Meesh is my younger sister. When I was home alone, I was the dominant cat here in this place. Oh, the Meesh can put up a good scrap when I get too bossy with her, but she knows who's the boss around here. Me, that's who's boss here. Now that dad is on some sort of study leave, a sabba...something, he's home pretty well all day, and he think's he's the guy in charge here. Life was easier then with him at work all day. Well, he's going to have learn different, CATS RULE... Heck, whenever me or the Meesh get on top of something, he's always telling us to get down. Ha, ha, ha, he's so funny, 'cause when we don't get down or do what he tells us, he say's "I'm gonna get the water gun". But, ha! ha! Like it matters! We only get down when he gets the water gun.
No sireee, folks, the reality here is I am the dominant cat here in this household, followed by the Meesh. Don't get me wrong, I am not going to throw him out or anything like that, he just needs more training if he's going to spend so much time at home. We want him around and we do love him, but he's got to learn how to fit in. Ya, he pays the rent, cleans out our litter boxes, feeds us, and even takes care of us when we are sick, and sometimes takes us to the vet and protects us. But sheesh, gimme a break here, isn't that what good servants are supposed to do? There's an old cliché that I like, "dogs have masters (what else, they are silly, slobbering creatures) and cats have servants."
Hey! If any of you other cats out there can read this, let me tell ya, TAKE CHARGE NOW! It's pretty hard to retrain a human. It takes lots of love, patience and the occasional slap or bite to get them to understand.
Oh, ya, one last thing that got me annoyed at my dad this morning; Every morning just before the sun comes up, I usually walk up his side, and head but his arm or hand for scratches and pets, that's our quality time, but this morning when I did it, I had to practically put my nose in his ear before he petted and scratched me. "So what", you say! Well that's my quality time, that's when I want to get petted and have my face, ears and nose scratched. I was even more annoyed when all Misha had to do, was to jump from his chest of drawers on to our bed, walk up beside him, purring and chirping like she always does, and he pets her. Ok! Ok! I agree it was much later in the morning.
Ooops here comes dad, better go now...thanks for letting me vent, and if you have any advice, please direct it to my dad, hopefully he'll learn. Also tell him not to hit me when I bite him, even though it doesn't heart, I can hit harder than he does, but it makes me mad.
Purrs, mews and head butts,
Sammy. (Dad's golden boy) Yikes, gotta run...
