Speak Your Mind



  1. Hello, I check your blogs daily. Your humoristic style is witty, keep up the good

  2. Being the boss around the dog.

  3. Angela Cash says:

    My cat has a favorite toy – a long shoelace. She often carries it around with her and she sleeps with it. I find it draped into the food or water bowl at least once a day. Bizarre, but very cute!

  4. tina reynolds says:

    my son has a step 2 slide inside and are cat goes up and down it as much as he does

  5. Shelley C. says:

    The other day my dog was out front, he’s usually in the back. I thought this should be interesting. He is 89 lbs & the cat might be 8 lbs. He ignored the cat & out of the blue the cat charges the dog. Really!!! I yelled, she stopped & he looked like “You’re kidding right”. Incredible!! He trolls into the house with no accidents!!

  6. Our cat likes to lick plastic…. ?

  7. Stephanie from CT says:

    They think they are dogs, follow me everywehere, and come when the y are called!

  8. sandra davis says:

    my cat manages to open my cabinet door and gets her package of treats out and tries to eat through the package to get some

  9. Shelley P says:

    Our cat plays hard and will run or chase things/toys but can’t stop so easily and crashes into things.

  10. My kitten has swallowed one my very long hairs. She used the litterbox, then started running around, scared to death of something. I chased after her until I caught her and discovered what the scary monster following her was: a piece of poo attached to one end of a long hair. The other end was still attached to her! It was gross but sooo funny!!

    our cats like to tease our blue and gold macaw…

  12. My cat thinks he’s a dog. He loves to play fetch.

  13. judy gardner says:

    i had a cat once that climbed the Christmas tree

  14. katie klein says:

    My cat used to open doorknobs with his paws.

  15. My mom’s cat climbed up the screen door on the outside and when we got home there he is just hanging there meowing. It looked funny because his paws were spread so far apart. Like when you see cartoons of a cat splat on a door. That’s what we thought of when we saw him. It was so funny! We took him down and we have no idea how long he’d be hanging on there. He wasn’t hurt. He did it again but least someone was home to take him off. Cats do the stupidest things sometimes. He passed away a few yrs ago and I miss him. He was a cool cat. Thank you for the great giveaway! 🙂

  16. Kim Burnett says:

    ran through the screen door

  17. Debby Chandler says:

    My cat Bell just loves pork rinds! When she was younger I would just toss a pork rind her way but now that she’s an old gal I have to crush them up for her.

  18. michelle warner says:

    at about 6 pm every day my cat plays in the hallway with its imaginary friend, its so crazy, she tries to climb up the wall and just plays in the hallway by herself

  19. Krystal M says:

    Earlier this week, my brother was outside and tried to pick up the cat. She didn’t want to be picked up (at least by him), and so scratched at him — the silly boy wasn’t wearing a jacket. In reaction, he threw her into the snow (about two feet high maybe?)… She made two of the funniest jumps you have ever seen in order to get out of the cold, cold snow!

  20. My cat, thinking the tea leaves I had bought in bulk was catnip, ripped open 6 baggies full and had it everywhere. When we got home one cat was rolling in it and the other was laying in a big pile looking dazed

  21. Charlene S says:

    One time my cat got her the handle to a plastic bag around her head and when she saw it she ran away. The bag was like a parachute. It was so funny.

  22. My cat Shady likes to wait until the dog is sleeping to sneak up and smack him and run.

  23. Jennie Hawkins says:

    I have a friend that has cats and loves them very much. I am a dog person myself. It may have to do with all the men in my family are highly allergic to cats. I said that to say this I need this book for my friend Faye.

  24. my daughter’s cat loves to tease their husky dog

  25. Sounds like a good book to read, thank you!

  26. Linda Short says:

    Our cat actually sounds like she says “NO!” when i ask her something. She is such a diva!

  27. Carrie Phelps says:

    My Elijah will not let me take a shower in peace! EVERY shower (for the last 9 yrs.!!) he has to have his shot at getting himself totally soaked.

  28. happy new years

  29. My parents have a 12-foot high wall in their living room with textured bamboo wallpaper. The cat once got into a wild mood, and was able to climb almost the full length of the wall on that textured wallpaper. It got about 10 feet off the ground, then looked down, and realized it was 10 feet off the ground. And started holding on for dear life, and meowed this horribly sad, frightened meow. My dad had to borrow a ladder from neighbors to get her down!

  30. Sharon Schoepe says:

    Tried to jump in the window and totally misjudged and hit the wall.

  31. Michelle Proper says:

    When my one cat was geting old & a bit senile she cuddled up in a pot on the stove and took a nap. Funniest picture ever!

  32. She’s in estrus at 8 mos old and brought home her boyfriend. Am I laughing yet? Not exactly.

  33. nikki krutz says:

    we have a 21 pound cat who just lazes around all day. he sleeps in the bathroom sink. we get him exciting toys and he will play and then lays down to play some more. he is the cutest little fatty cat. 🙂
