10 Ways To Show Respect For Your Cat On National Respect Your Cat Day

Now, we don't know if this is just another American Greetings card holiday or not, but it was brought to our attention, that today is: National Respect Your Cat Day.

Just like the numerous other "love your pet" holidays that have sprung up by the dozens in recent years, Cody and I feel that cats should be respected EVERY DAY, not just ONE DAY in the year!

That being said, in order to honor this momentous occasion I asked Cody to share some ways that I could be sure to honor his request for my undying respect, and here they are!

1) Serve Food That I Love



2) Have regular Vet Check-Ups
 (yes, my furiends I actually SAID this!)




3) Play With Me when I Want To Play
 Not Just When YOU Want To Or "Have Time" To Play


4) Provide Fun Toys To Play With
 When We DO Play!





5) Provide Comfy Sleeping Spots





6) Don't Bring Home A Dog
(Ok, I will forgive you for this one, it's fun to torment him)




7) Give ME More Blogging Time
(I am tired of you taking over "OUR" blog)




8)  Love Me Even When I Am Old And Gray
(Ok, I am not old and I am already gray, so sue me! I mean GRAYER!!)




9)   Donate To Animals In Need
(and whenever possible, help them to find furever homes)



10) Only Take Photos Of Me
 When I WANT YOU TO!
 (as in NEVER!!)
 If you do NOT obey the vast majority of the above commands


Kitties: What are some ways that YOUR humans can show YOU some more respect? Or...are they pawfect already?

Love, Cody

  3. I bet Sparkle would have been all over this day! Since my human has been hauling me off to cat shows at least twice a month for the past few months and doing all sorts of stuff for me, I can't complain.

  11. I said 'agree' to each one, until I saw the last point "Only take pictures of me when I want you too." Cats are too cute not to take pictures of them all the time. Otherwise I think I'm a good cat mom :-)

  12. Dear Cody,
    Please tell my Parental Unit not to attempt to make the bed while I am sleeping on it! Talk about disrespectful...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. you are sooo right! That is BEYOND disrespectful! I never sleep on the bed (do you believe it? Mom thinks I am strange!) but Angel Bobo used to ALL of the time and sometimes Mom would have the nerve to try and move him too! Love, Cody

      Delete
  13. That was so good Cody and we enjoyed those. You might want to keep Dakota though!

    ReplyDelete

    1. thanks so much Brian!! Yeah, I guess I will keep Dakota, don't have much of a choice! MOL! Love, Cody

  14. Oh brother...cats! I think I will respect my cat bro Bert by sitting on him today. Maybe you can con Dakota into more respect, but at my house it's not happening!

  18. Mom treats me like the Queen I am. I do wish she would play just a bit more when I want to, but she does play with me. I'm extremely bonded with her so I guess she's OK. MOL

  21. Callie agrees that we need more toys!! I don't have any for her yet :( We still play with other things though. I am slowly trying to build up her collection of stuff, but have to watch my spending since my boyfriend's work closed down 2 weeks ago.

    Replies
    1. Oh Ann I am so sorry to hear that!!! There are TONS of things you can use as toys instead of traditional toys (which to be honest, they don't always play with anyway!)

      1) take an old sock, put cat nip in it and tie the end so it doesn't fall out
      2) Use a ring from a milk bottle (my cats never liked them, but many do)
      3) paper bag with handle cut off
      4) empty box
      5) roll up a wad of paper and throw it

  22. Completely agree! But we love our dog! :) Bo and Kobi

  23. I think you have got it all summed up there Cody. My mum should show me more respect. I object to the way she shadows me when I want to poop. Then she stands there and watches to see what comes out. To make matters worse, then she tittle tattles to the vet to describe it in detail. The embarrassment!

    ReplyDelete

    1. Thank you Flynn and I must agree with you. I think your Mum "shadowing" you while you poop and WATCHING and then reporting it to the vet where you can hear is MOST disrespectful! Sheesh! Love, Cody

  26. Oh, Mommy totally FAILS on item #10!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Those are all great ways to show kitty some respect. My mom could use a little improvement on number 3 (more play) and as long as the neighbor dog never comes in the house, I guess she's doing on on number 6.

  32. Perfect for me Cody.
    I want to add juste one small thing ! I want to go outside early in the morning. I dont know why I have to wait till 8h00. And I want to stay outside at night when ever I feel like doing it ... But I know that it's impossible.

    1. Hi Hisia! I think your request of going outside early in the morning is quite reasonable! I think your human is smart not to let you stay out all night though, I wouldn't want you to get hurt in the dark! Your human is smart, you should only be out in daylight! Love, Cody

  33. Wow! Vet check-up was number 2 on the list?! Very good Cody! These are all great ideas!

  35. Is being pulled out from under/behind furniture respectfur?? Well, Minko says this happens a lot...when he is decorating the carpet or needing some other kinds of unwarranted attention. And Pipo says he gets a lot of being ignored when the food bowl is empty, or when he miaows for the playtime rituals...

    Sheesh, and not blogging enough...we need to fire her, d'ya think?!?

  36. Purrfect list, Cody!
