Its Me, Ali Z!

Hello Kitties and Pups!

Its Tuesday (GroundHog Day of all days!) and its time to check the mail.

Twinkietinydog disagrees with my advice of last week regarding her desired romance with a dog about 90 times her size we refer to as RH (everyone knows who we are speaking of, right?)  Twinkie asks me since when does size matter (forever), age, race, breed, religion.  All I can say, Twinkie is what I said and I am sticking with it.  You, of course, are free to do anything you like and I hope that you are happy in your choice.  Now I want you all to know Romance isn't my forte', and I have another question about it.

Martha and Bailey wrote saying that Charlie the Hound Dog admires Martha (from a continent away!) .Charlie is 11 years old and Martha is only 3, plus Martha has lived a most sheltered life, spending most of her years in a kennel so she is a late developer.  They are asking for my advice!  If your Romance takes place by mail, I suppose it is alright, Charlie is a lot older than Martha so it may not last too long.  I don't know really, what to say, except that if distance continues to separate you, it might be nice to have this loving long distance relationship.  If they meet, they might find they are not so sweet on each other.  Good luck to you both!

 Dear little Ludo  writes about his brofur who likes to leave a little food in his dish for later, finds that some dog is coming along and eating it up.  His brofur asks for more food and his people think he is greedy.
Hmmm, is this Pepe the cat we are talking about, Ludo?  If it is the food giver could put his dish up on a counter where the cat could easily jump to, but the dog couldn't.   Otherwise, brofur will just have to learn to eat his food when he has it and be glad for it.  You know, the 'take the cookies when they are passed' kind of thing.
Ludo asks what is my favorite kind of food.  Huffle has got me eating HAM everytime I can get my paws on some!

Tee asks what did your Momma feed you . . .we'd like to have your wisdoms.  Umm, I don't know what my Momma fed me except her milk, I know I get good special cat food here in my home, but I think the most important thing is to keep listening and learning.  When you have a question, Google it, so you have the answer.  Learn something new every day!

Giant Speckled Chihuahua  Stumpy wants to know why we always find the cat in the last place we look?
Because, Stumpy, they do not wish to be found and cats are the very best hiders in the world, its like a game to us, we can fit ourselves into little spaces and on ledges and in trees.  Its fun hiding!

I know last time I said No More Poo Posts, but uh, the dogs, seem to find it important to talk about.
Like Tank, who said he gets deer poo in his yard, eats it until he is sick and then his family has to take him out on a leash to make sure he doesn't eat it.  He was upset that I didn't "get" the dogs need for poo and said Oprah would understand.  Tank, you know, I am glad Oprah would understand, I really am.  But here is what I see.  I see an addiction to deer poo and you will require an addiction counselor for this problem, its beyond me!
Grumpy Bobby who is from a blog called Kind Hearts and well worth a visit, says Rabbit poo is sooo good
we eat it and then sick it up.  Yuk, Bobby, sounds horrible to me.  But I have come to the conclusion that NOTHING I could say would change your doggy minds about eating poo.  So have at it!
Dennis the Vizsla who last week asked me if washing poo would make it OK (NO!) this week has the audacity to wonder if mikrowayving (his spelling) poo to at least 180 degrees internal temperature would make it acceptable.  So Dennis, as I said to Grumpy Bobby and Tank, I give up, I really do and I have warned you about bacteria, getting terribly sick, kidney failure, death, but still you want to eat this stuff. 
I can see nothing I say will stop you.  So thats it from me, poo-wise.

Thanks for the mail and I will see you next week.  Send your questions to comments and I will do my best to answer them.

Meow, meow,

Ali Zophia

The Army of Four said...

Woo. Older guys and younger babes can work out really well. Trust me.

The OP Pack said...

We really think Martha should give Charlie a chance, you never know what will happen. And not to bring up a taboo subject, but we have a problem with rabbit pellets in our yard - TD seems to think it is job to clean it up - what do you think of that, Ali Z. But if it is a subject you want to put to rest, it is OK with us.

Woos, Phantom and Thunder

Samantha said...

Again, Ali Z, you exude wisdom and we over here have learned much from you o sage one!!! Keep that advice coming!
Hugs xo

Bobby said...

Does this mean we have to keep repeating our comments for a whole year, until next Groundhog day. We are going to stop eating you know what it sounds awful reading about it.

Martha and Bailey said...

As wise as ever Ali Z - we thing a long distance relationship has rather a romantic quality.
Who knows if we were to meet Charlie may well be put off when he hears Martha snoring!
love and kisses

Thanks, Ali Z. I tried to tell Stumpy that we found the kitties in the last place we looked because once we found the cat we didn't need to look anymore.

Here's her next question...

If toast always lands butterside down, and cats always land on their feet, what would happen if you strapped toast to a cats back and dropped it?

She sure has a lot of questions!

Twinkietinydog said...

All I can say, Ali Z, is RH WROTE TO ME! And I think it was a love note (comment). He said, exact quote: "You are amazing". Now what do you have to say to that? Huh? You skeptic kat you!

Huffle Mawson said...

Your mum gives you ham now? That's so cool!

I don't know what it is with these dogs and their poo. Weird.

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Once again Ali you sure do give some awesome advice..
Oh Stella yepper we are always totally worn out after Marley goes home..

I'm almost healed from the KhatDog Group at Mango Minster 2010 -

Thanks A LOT -


Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Wow. I didn't realize how wise you are! Maybe you'll be able to help me with this 'puppy' thing that Mom says she is bringing home this weekend. And I feel for Twink; the RH doesn't seem to be interested in goldendoodle gals, either...

*kissey face*

Ali Z - I'm just kind of reading between the lines here, but I get the feeling that you're fed up... no, make that FED UP with dogs asking you poo questions. Well honestly, there's nothing I like better than annoying a cat so I just have to ask you another question, but I promise it won't be about you know what.

Why do you think dogs are attracted to other animals poo?

Dennis the Vizsla said...

hello ali z its dennis the vizsla dog hay hmmm ok i wil lay off the cat poo then besides i dont reely no how to wurk the mikrowayve and trouble is reely cranky laytly and wil probly kil me if she ketches me neer her boks agin thanks for all the gud advice!!! ok bye

Hamish Westie said...

It is time we had the older male dog perspective on these romantic issues. I think that it is probably OK for Twinkie to proceed, so long as the she recognises certain things:
1. That after a certain age, one can't really be bothered to do more than eat and sleep. Romantic nights out, present buying etc. are not on the agenda.
2. We older chaps are very set in our ways, so it is younger female who will be expected to adapt.
3. When younger human female hitches up with the older male it is often (dare I say) in the expectation that the older male will have a short life and a high net financial worth.....This same advantage does not apply to older male dogs, who in themselves have no tangible assets, and whose owner will very probably have been bankrupted by vet bills...
Just a warning.
And on the poo issue. Has Dennis considered gamma irradiation??
Cheers, H.

Thank you again for all of your wisdom!

Ali Z,

Could you possibly take a few days away from home to come teach my dog, R, to be polite to cats? We need a tough cat like you who won't run away but isn't as big as Leo the mountain lion to teach him a lesson.

We'll pay for your plane ticket!

Huskee and Hershey said...

LOL... we LOVE all your advice and was hoping that your post would go on and on and on...!!
Can we ask a question on behalf of our mom? She is dying to know why do we always follow her into the bathroom and leave her with absolutely zero privacy to do her 'business'??

Stella in yesterday's post we finally slowed down after hours of zooming..
