Yesterday, I was reading Daisy’s post at PetMeds Blog and I learned that today is National Answer Your Cat’s Questions Day!
Needless to say, all three of us – Milou, Kitshka, and I – have questions for our humans! So there you go!
How come I cannot eat Texas’ and Kitshka’s yummiest food?
Because it makes you seriously sick, then I have to get you to the V-E-T and he performs outrageous things on your business end to fix you.
Why are you feeding me only 18 times a day when I’m hungry 28 times?
Because I actually have to work so I can afford your diet food among others, and get a little sleep (I don’t require 18h a day but still).
I’m hungry. Can I have food now?
You had food 10 minutes ago!
Can the birdies outside be invited inside the house?
No sweetie, they are meant to live outside. Inside, they could not fly.
How come I cannot eat Texas’ and Milou’s yummiest food?
Because you have your special kitten food, so that you can healthily grow into a beautiful Ladycat. Texas is currently on diet food* and Milou has a special urinary diet.
Why don’t you let the cream cheese on the table, ever?
I don’t want it to turn sour.**
Why don’t you eat fresh shrimps more often?
Because we don’t want to eat shrimps everyday.
Why can’t we keep all the boxes you receive?
I know you love boxes, Texas. And there will always be boxes for you to play with. We cannot have boxes everywhere though. We, humans, live here too, you know (not in boxes though).
How come I cannot eat Milou’s yummiest food?
Because Milou has a special urinary diet, he cannot eat*** anything else, and this type of food is very high in calories.
* Texas: Human! You didn’t have to tell!
** Kitshka: Yeah, right. Just because I am a kitten doesn’t mean I am stupid. You just don’t want to share!
*** Milou: Speaking of eating…
What is this *diet* we keep reading about? We don’t like the sound of it and we sure hope it doesn’t find it’s way here! Is it contagious?
Milou has had urinary complications since I had him neutered (struvite). It’s gotten so bad at one point that he had to undergo serious surgery… Unfortunately for him and his gargantuan appetite, he is very sensitive to regular food, so he can only eat feline Hill’s C/D, which only comes in 2 flavors and costs an arm and a leg.
Excellent work Texas and Company…..you presented your humans with some VERY good questions and while the answers often were not the ones you were hoping for, at least your humans LISTENED to you. Diet? Diet? That sounds like something I don’t want either…..By the way, glad to hear that you were reassured on the box issue – there WILL be more boxes coming for you – just not everywhere in the house!
Kitty Hugs, Sammy
That was great guy’z, yeah, why can’t the berd’z come in to play and I want more shrimp :) MOL xx00xx
Mollie and Alfie
Ooooh! I don’t have diet I just have food!! mol xox
Nos bipèdes se croient toujours obligés de nous contrarier ! Paraît que c’est pour notre bien! Pfff!
You Fuzz Faces sure love your cream cheese! And SHRIMPS!!!
Don’t suppose those answers pleased any of you!
Les bipèdes compliquent toujours les choses.
Mais ils nous aiment c’est sûr.

this is hilarious! I loved it (especially your reply to Milou about his “business end”)!
three clever intelligent pussies…..love you all xxxxxx
One thing we’ve learned from the C0WS in Texas is the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence. Seriously. Check out a pasture sometime and you can always see a COW with its head stuck through the fence trying to get to the more delicious grass on the other side. Maybe we all want what we can’t have?
Those were sure good questions, but I’m real hungry for some reason!
Ha ha ha… Loved the questions and the answers! Bowie would ask for more salmon, he doesn’t like shrimps…
Ooooh! Salmon is good too!
I think your human is making up some of those answers! I am wondering why my human has not answered any of MY questions – that is not in the spirit of the holiday!
Liousha : oh, c’est scandaleux, vous ne pouvez pas choisir vos menus ni la fréquence des repas…
Tiki : mais, c’est comme chez nous !!
Liousha : ah vi, c’est un scandale chez nous aussi.
Hee hee, great questions! Wow, I cannot even think about the logistics of keeping each cat to their own food!
The human is complaining a bit ;-)
Those are some mighty good questions. We have some just like those. Why can’t we have like a buffet, with the food available at all times??? Take care.
Exactly! A buffet is what we need!
ummmm…sounds like the topic of noms is a pretty intense one at your house TExas…for all of you…come on out to sunny Nor Cal and hang with me, I will share my noms with you…paw pats Savannah
Wowsers! How does your Mama keep all your fuds straight?! She must be very clever and organized! If it were us , we would trip our Mama up and steal each others’ food. We are naughty like that :)
the critters in the cottage xo
Well, we do try and steal each other’s food when we can…
Vous avez vraiment l’air affamés les copains !
Va falloir qu’on se mette aux langues étrangères nous !
very thoughtful questions. you may want to fact-check the answers, howevah. also, don’t let them get away with answering the question they WISHED you had asked, instead of the one you did ask. such as, “why don’t you feed me more?” needs a more honest answer, like: “because I am a cruel and heartless,” or, better yet: “because I am going to feed you more right now!” None of this, “because I have to work…” nonsense.
I know. But that’s a start. They are only humans, you know.
oh, I missed it! But in doubt every day is Cat´s Question Day, isn´t it?
Great question from you and not so good answers from your mom *MOL*
GREAT questions! I just found out about this special day too.
Love these questions. So true!
Kitty Q & A, love it!
Those were some great questions you asked.
Well that was just about the most inneresting post I ever read! Boy, those Humans sure are a drag. I think I am going to gather some questions for *MY* Human. Hmmmm……
All such excellent questions. We asked mom why six of us caught the sneezy, weepy eye virus and the other two didn’t? She said because Lily is anti-social and Fiona is shy. We’re trying hard to make them sick too. After all, it’s only fair. Purrs and hugs, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette (Lily Olivia and Fiona too)
Nice question- answer session…really enjoyed it! :-)
What an awesome post!
So sweet :)
