Its Me, Ali Z!




Hello Kitties and Pups:
Its Tuesday and that is my day to blog. I must admit I kind of like it and enjoy reading the comments I get.
Here is one from Beckett who says Stella always leaves the impression that she is a goody-goody fourpaws. Is she really as angelic and well-behaved as she likes to think she is?
Uhh, compared to you, she probably is angelic and well behaved. However, if you are a cat, she never misses an opportunity to chase me (which I hate), to snatch any goodies Mom gives me (like a little piece of ham which I love), or just intimidate me with her size. However, I have discovered I am smarter and faster than she, so I don't get so scared of her anymore.
Cloud the Wonder Dog wrote: Why are cats so hard to get along wiff? I live with a cat who thinks she is the Queen of the Universe, but she shows contempt for me and even my Mom sometimes! Why are you like that and why can't you be friendly all the time like dogs?
Cloud, this is a very difficult question to answer. Did you know at one time in Egypt cats were
worshipped? All cats have memory of this and some more than others. So when your cat Boomer (she may just hate her name) thinks she is Queen of the Universe, she knows that once she was worshipped and would prefer you and your Mom do the same. As for all of us cats becoming very friendly like dogs . . .that will be the day, Cloud!
Hamish the Westie: Thank you for your advice but I will never trust a cat again, remembering the bloody nose one gave me almost 10 years ago.
Hamish, you really must try to forgive and forget this incident. The cat who did this to you might have been terrified of you. 10 years is a long time to be carrying this grudge against cats.
I would suggest some hypnosis to try and get rid of this bad memory. I hope you can do it.
Wilbur of Washington Woos had this comment: Furry beasts are funny. Funny in the brain, in that they don't have any brains.
Wilbur, I have to disagree with you a little. Dogs all have brains, except they are very teeny, tiny ones, telling them to eat, play and sleep. That is about it and they must draw our pity for that. Cats like you and I ,Wilbur, we have had to adjust to life with them and its not a bit easy.
Our last commenter is the eminent Joe Stains who says he thinks Martha and Bailey (who had nice comments about our last post)are "kissing up" with Tuesdays being really rough days on the blog betweens CATS and Tanner.
Joe, while we enjoy most of your blogging, its apparent that your brother Tanner (Doofus) could give Tuesday blogging a bad name. Our blog is sensible and well-read but Tanner is a whole other story. So Joe, I say you are half right! However, I do think that saying Martha and Bailey are kissing up is rude in the extreme and I will offer them an apology in your name.

Ali Z--it is always interesting to hear your take on the goings on!

Hamish Westie said...

Mmmmmm. Hypnosis eh? Well Ali Z, I am a dog with a deep interest in and respect for science. Can you assure me that this hypnosis thing is an evidence-based treatment, and not just quackery? If so, I might consider it (if I can persuade Gail to pay....)
Thanks for the advice anyway.
Cheers, H.

Hmrph. Mom was out walking me and Stormy the other night after dark, and a cat ran out of NOWHERE and came running right AT us! I don't think that was very nice. If Mom hadn't screeched "NO" at someone at the top of her lungs, I would have taught that kittycat some manners. Hrumph. Six INCHES away from me, it stopped and hissed at us.
Stormy had the nerve to wag her tail at it. Hrumph!
Love,
Ammy

Joe Stains said...

I guess some dogs just can't take a joke :( sorry to all, this rude dude will stay away from now on.

MAX said...

You give sound advice, Ali-Z, so I thought I'd ask my own question:
"mmm...I dream about huge monster cats who prowl my gardens perimeters. The dream extends to owners not 'controlling them' and they then take me out. Horrors...I then have to submit to a cat?" Tell me - is this some sort of post-kitty-cat-traumatic-stress disorder?

Well Miss Ali Z,
You guys aren't in Egypt anymore, BOL!!! It's time you cats get down off your high horse or whatever it is that you're sitting on (probably a satin pillow) and stop acting like you're doing us all a favor by allowing us to live in your presence. I don't know why so many humans fall for your high and mighty act, but us dogs are onto you.

Here is my question for the week:

Why do you cats wag your tails when you're mad? I think it means "I'm happy and want to play wiff you Cloud!" But apparently it don't! This is Body Language 101. How can you mess up something so simple? In other words - You're doing it wrong!!!

BOL!

Luv,
Cloud the Communicator

You're right about the brain thing. The only thing the boy furry beast can think about is food and peeing on everything.

Wilbur
