Its Me! Ali Z!

Hello Kitties and Pups!

Things have calmed down here a bit today and so we have a few questions to get at!

The Thundering Herd asked if  we got the new appliance boxes to play in, saying they try to eat them!
We have a small house and since I am an indoor cat, I don't get these things.  My Mom does use smaller boxes with holes and windows she cuts that I can play in.  It amuses her for a time, so I do it.  Do you eat the boxes or just the glue?

Khyra The Siberian says  Oh Dang! How Will I Make it Until THEN? (after I wrote and said my column would be delayed.).  Uh, I would hope perhaps you could watch some television, or maybe walk with your Mom, or perhaps your Doggy Nanny would read you a story.  Maybe go take agility classes or learn Flyball like Dennis the Viszla does.  Its a big world out there, dear!

Hamish the Westie asked if our new appliances were going to do anything useful for Stella and myself.  You would know Hamish, that a nice warm blanket just out of the dryer on a cold day is nothing to turn up ones nose about, is it?  I love that.  But you also asked what appliance would be handiest for Stella or myself.
We don't know if its been invented yet, but we can agree on this one thing.  We would like an automatic scratching machine.  Where we could go right up to it, and put our itchy part next to it and it would gently scratch us as long as we wanted.  Our Mom will do this for us now and then, but you know, we want it for Anytime!  What would you think of that?

Cloud the Wonder Dog says that the squirrels in his yard are the fattest he has seen and he wonders why this is.  This is simple, Cloud, they have plenty to eat and are filling up, not just their store rooms, but their tummies!  The females will be coming out with babies in the spring, so they like to store up weight for the days ahead.  Are your squirrels as fat as these are?  Watch out for them if they are!  Maybe the fat will slow them down so you can catch them?

All for this time,
meow, meow,
Ali Zophia

The OP Pack said...

Whoa, those squirrels are really gigantic - what have they been eating? Ali Z. we think that you already have a good scratching machine there in your Mom. Can't do much better than that one.

woos, the OP Pack

Cloud the Wonder Dog said...

YES, our squirrels are that big now! They have fat rolls and look funny when they climb up and down the trees, BOL!


The Thundering Herd said...

Those are serious squirrels. Have they been lifting weights?

Thanks for answering our questions. Qannik has been known to try to eat anything.

That squirrel needs to go to weight watchers. Or else, a big scarry cat might get him.

We don't have squirrels; doesn't that seem terribly unfair!?!?

Ali - How do you teach a wild labrador puppy to be nice to cats? Any advice would be appreciated!

TwoSpecialWires said...

No wonder those squirrels are so monstrous! Look at the pile of seeds they're eating. And they don't even have to run around looking for them. They are like giant weebles!

Easier to catch, we bet. Do you chase 'em?

There surely must be something in the food! We have never seen squirrels that round!

Cloud the Wonder Dog said...

Hi Ali Z, Boomer is better than ever. Mom says she'll probably outlive us all. And yes, she stopped eating cobwebs, but that's only because there was only the one and she ate it all, BOL!

I'm thinking those are the FATTEST FATTEST squirrels I have ever seen as well.

I think they need an "Intervention."

Hi Ali Z
Apologies for only now getting round to commenting. That automatic scratching machine sound like just the perfect thing - please put me down for one too!
Cheers, H.
