At this time, I must tender my resignation as Head of Household, aka Top Cat. I am unable to carry out my day to day HOH duties of chasing other kitties off the bed or sofa, asserting my dominance with mommy and daddy, using my very big hands to swat kitties. I am still revered as an elder statesman, but I want to use what time I have left with my family for relaxing and dreaming of catnip fields. My every whim is catered to, and I am comfortable. I have my own room, my own food, my own fountain, my own queen sized bed, my own people to carry me, and even someone to wipe my face and rear for me. The only part I am unhappy with is the thrice daily dose of medicine and the once daily needle I get to water me. I know my mommy and daddy mean well, so I tolerate it. I can't stand to see their wet faces when they look at me or talk about me.
It's not clear yet who will take over as the leader of our family. I know it won't be mommy or daddy. I had been grooming Gilmore, but he is not ready. Cas is making a play to get the honor, but the other cats show him no respect. Maybe a lady cat will be the leader now. After all, we are a progressive family!
I am going to rest by the fire now.

Sorry to hear you are resigning as HOH. May you enjoy your time with your family and dream many happy dreams of catnip fields.
I understand about not being happy taking medicine. I'm the same way about my meds but it sure is nice to receive all the extra attention we get once we become elder cats.
Sending lots of loving purrs your way.
You'll be the honorary H.o.H., Mouse. No one will be able to do the pawsome job you have been doing, but I'm sure someone will step up and try to take over some of your duties. Be a good boy and let your Mommy and Daddy give you fluids so that you will feel better. We are all purring for you!
P.S. I think Kiki would make a fine H.o.H. She does have the tortitude to handle the job!
I'll never resign, now matter how much those boycats want it!
Although you are stepping down as HOH, I'm sure the success and failures of all future HOHs will be weighed against the best HOH ever: YOU! Now that you don't have your HOH duties to worry about, you will be able to enjoy some precious time with your humans. Humans are very fragile despite their size. I'm sure your humans will appreciate the extra time you have to spend with them.
I know your mommy and daddy love you so very much. I know how good they were to me even though I fought them at every turn. I will keep you in my purrs that your time will be happy and pain-free and care-free.

Sending you purrs for a drama free retirement sweet boy.
