A Spoiled or Not Mancat


This morning as I was resting with Dad, he told me I'm spoiled.

Well, some may say I'm spoiled, but is that MY fault?! I don't think so. When I was a kitten at the shelter all I wanted was a forever home...someone to love me and take care of me. Luckily I was adopted into one of the best families a kitty could ever ask for.

But did I ask to be spoiled?! No.

I consider the following examples to be perks, and ones that I richly deserve in my position as Senior Cat and that I've have earned through 10 1/2 years of companionship and devotion to my family.

1. I am the only cat that gets to lay between Mom & Dad in the big bed. Everyone else lays at the foot of the bed or next to Mom or Dad.

2. I determine how I will lay in bed. Mom must hold me the way I prefer to be held, or I complain until I get my way.

3. I am the only one who lays UNDER the covers...the choicest spot, to be sure!

4. No door can shut me out. If I want to be in the bedroom or bathroom, I yowl until I'm allowed IN!!

5. When I want to be held or picked up, I'm very selective about who does it. If I want Mom, it MUST be Mom. If I want Dad, only Dad will do. Sometimes I go back & forth between them.

6. The one who's lap I'm on must not get up and disturb me. If they want something, the other will go to the kitchen & get it. I must not be bothered. If I am, I complain...loudly!!

7. Dad feeds me sandwich fixings in the morning...turkey or ham...on the counter. Everyone else gets their on the floor.

Now friends, I ask you to consider this -- do I live in a mansion? Am I lolling around on satin pillows? Do I wear a jewel encrusted collar? Am I served gourmet food in a crystal bowl? No...I'm a working cat with huge responsibilities with only a staff of 2 to meet my needs! And I'm not allowed in the attic whenever I want, I'm not allowed outside and I still don't have a STROLLER, either!

So, who agrees with me that I'm not spoiled?

George, I do not believe you are spoiled. You merely have your humans very well trained. I bet that took a lot of work!

You are definitely NOT spoiled. All those things are you just rewards for being such a good cat.

ps: We do #6 too. My Mommie will say "Daisy is on my lap. Can you get me something to drink?"

I don't think you're spoiled at all.

I agree... not spoiled. Everything you listed is to be expected as a bare minimum.

You need a heated cat cup AND a stroller.

Sadly, I don't have a stroller either.

But the fact of the matter is - we *should be spoiled! :)

no you're not spoiled - you could akshually turn this around and complain that you are under-appreciated and demand a stroller or somefing like that.

The thing about the doors: Only a cat can save someone who has fallen into a toilet. That is why we scratch so hard on the door when they are in there sitting on the thing.

Ever heard of anyone dying from falling in a toilet if they own a cat?

I rest my case.

You are definitely not spoiled!! We are however, jealous that you get to sleep in bed with the beans. We are still in the stage where we have "kitty races @ midnight" and therefore, we are not allowed in the beans bedroom after dark.
