OH MY I am BAD!!

"Bad, bad kitty", my People #2 scolds me.

I wash my face and ignore him. It's the very first subject we have to take in Kitty 101.

He asks, "Why do you even have a blog, Rupert? You haven't written in it for nearly a year!"

Meow, I say. Whatever. I'm a busy cat.

People #2 shrugs his shoulders and walks away. I hate it when he does that.

Shame takes a while to sink in, if it sinks in at all. I am a CAT, for gosh sake. We cats do whatever we want. When we want to do it.

When we are not sleeping, eating or stalking (if we are lucky enough to go outdoors, which I am!) we spend our time training our People.

We take this very seriously. It's a noble, worthwhile goal which lasts all of our (nine) lives.

In fact, it's our most important task next to sleeping. These People need to know who's boss. In this house, that's ME.

Sometimes I have to lay down the law:

Other times we cats have to pretend to do what the People want, in order to get what WE want. Sometimes People have good ideas, but we mustn't encourage them or praise them in any way. If the ideas just happen to line up with what we have in mind, then we can go along with it, maybe.

So I put paws to keyboard to write in my blog. Yawn. Stretch. Wash.

Okay, I'm going back to sleep now.

I am so glad to meet you and pleased that you came over for a visit. I hope we get to know each other better.
You have to really stay on top of the humans and keep them in line at all times. Just be firm.

Sassy sent us by to say hello. You've been quiet for 11 months? How did you manage that? We seem to talk all the time. But then, there are 9 of us.

Nice to meet you, Rupert.

Thanks for the visit I was just coming over because Sassy alerted me of your blog. Staying quiet for a year???? Don't think I can do that, I am an addicted blogging kitty.

Hello Rupert - thanks for coming by and visiting us! It seems you really go into the right crowd right away, Sassy, the gang from Jan's Funny Farm and Momo are awesome friends!!!
Have you checked out the Cat Blogosphere yet?
Most wonderful place! You might get hooked to the blogging thing, hahahahahahahahahaha
See you around buddy!

Sassy told me about your blog! So glad that you are back to blogging. Good idea NOT to let your humans think they are the boss. It took my brother and I YEARS to teach our human tricks. After 13 years with her, I almost have her the way I want her.

Welcome back to the blog!

Hi Rupert, nice to meet you. You look like a mancat who runs his world perfectly. You have to be strict with humans.

THANK YOU Sassy Kat, Jan, MoMo, Cat Realm, Cat Naps and Everycat for becoming my new friends!!

I am honored. (As much as any cat would ever admit this.)

Your encouragement and support is already having an effect. I'm working on my next post NOW!
