While My Parents Are Gone


You all know we’ve been talking about our Sister B getting married and apparently destination weddings are the “in” thing right now. The wedding is taking place on Maui, Hawaii and Mom & Dad will be going there next week. Yes, I’m sure she’ll turn off the computer so I won’t be able to talk with you until they get back. I know I’ll have a lot to report by then!

They’ve arranged for Miss Ruth from the V.E.T.’s office to come and check on us and that would be OK with me except for the fact that B's dogs Daisy and Shasta will be staying here too, so they don’t have to go to a doggie jail. Miss Ruth will come over several times a day to let the dogs out and check on us at the same time. In preparation for this, Dad and I discussed responsibilities for each of us while they’re gone and here is what I’ve decided. Earlier this morning I met with Miss Ruth personally to go over exactly how I want things handled.

ME As senior cat, I will greet Miss Ruth daily and take her around, pointing out various things she needs to do like replenish our food and water and tend to our litterbox. I will also bring to her attention any throwup or dog accident spots. I’ll have general responsibility for everything inside the house and will delegate as I see fit. This may include a little feather waving or glitter ball throwing or maybe chew bones for the dogs.

MAX – Will be in charge of everything outside. This includes not only birdies, bunnies, chips & vicious deer, raccoons and other wildlife but most importantly, Mom’s tomatoes. Someone has been stealing all the red, ripe ones so instead of spending all day resting on the top shelf of the perch, he’ll need to watch carefully from the right windows to catch the thief and report back to me.

TIPPER – Will be in charge of Misty who needs constant watching so she doesn’t get hurt or destroy anything. I think I’ll probably have her watch Shasta too, since I’ll be much too busy for that. Poor Tipper won’t get much rest with two young ones to watch, but that’s just the way it is! We all have to do our share while Mom & Dad are gone.

MISTY – Forget it! She can't be trusted to be in charge of anything.

DAISY – Will be in charge of herself. I can’t be held responsible for the behavior of a dog who’s a year older than me!

SHASTA - Ditto Misty!

I told Mom to check out all the cool Hawaiian cat stuff and I specifically asked for some primo Hawaiian ‘nip so I can tell all the Catnip Anonymous members about it. I also expect a nice shirt or other suitable souvenir, but no macadamia nuts or refrigerator magnets, please! I think the gift should be something appropriate and befitting my level of responsibility in their absence, don’t you?

In the meantime, I’ll be resting up, doing a little undercover work and waiting for Miss Ruth.

George, it sounds like you have things well under control and that everybody have their jobs. Don't do too good a job, otherwise the beans might not fell sufficiently guitly about leaving you alone.

I hear that Hawaii is a very nice place to get married. Jasmine and Peter got married on O'ahu at the beginning of the year.

My Granny takes care of us when the Beans go away. Unfortunately, she knows how to give me my medicine.

Sounds like you've got everything well under control George. However, there must be some way you can get rid of the woofies while your parents are gone. I mean, how can you truly have fun with those slobbering things around?
