Funny story.... I think you have to have cats to appreciate this....
Mom was a Continuing Education workshop today for her job. There were about 60 people there. She was sitting with some people that she knew and some strangers. The ladies got talking about pets and one of the women, who Mom does know, asks her "So, how many cats do you have now"? Mom smiled at her and said, "9". The lady said, "Really, Can you name them?"
Was it a quiz? Did she not believe Mom? I guess the question could have been asked differently. So Mom goes through our names and ages. And the lady asks, "Where do you put them?"
Ummmm?????? It's not like my Mom says she collects 6ft statues. Where do you put them? Oh, how to answer....Down the cellar. Out in the garage. Up in the attic. In storage boxes.
I don't know about your house, but we can't really put a cat anywhere that they don't want to be.
She realized the humor of her comments and we got a good laugh. Besides having 9 cats, the other thing Mom has is a sense of humor.
But I have to ask....Do you have cats? Where do you put them?

Love this!!! I know where I'd like to put my brothers and sisters! Let's see: Linus would like to go into the fridge (provided he could get out when he wanted); Milo is still trying to get his perch back - he'd like to be put there; Miranda is a daddy's girl, she'd like to get put in the blankets of dad's bed; Lottie - she'd like to be in a box somewhere where I cannot find her; me? You can put me into the rest of the house where I would rule with majesty and grace.
WE, me & Novi, live ina 'pawtment with Jen & our roommate. MOL
alexis and i live with mom and 4 other humans in a house. but really in pretty much live in cat bed all time or being near mom and alexis lives on the humans beds or cat tree
This is funny where do you put them MOL! Well we have cats and we do not put them, even though like Lucy there are some I might want to put somewhere. What was that woman smoking? One does not put a cat someone, a cat does what it does.
MOL MOL! The answer to that is wherever they wanna be!

Why not ask you, Skylar, where you put your humans?....
'Out at the counter, preparing my food.....out at the store buying me more foood.....work, I guess....so they earn the money to get me more food.....at my side, brushing and petting me......'
How ignorant! Humans! Hummmph!
here are some smart retorts our mommy uses when someone asks her where she 'puts' us."
1) Oh, we got shelves at Ikea and stack them there.
2) Since none of them are Siberians-Tigers, I mean, they fit quite nicely in our space.
3)Wherever they want to go.
4) We keep the one that was given to us for biting stupid people near the door. Did you plan on visiting so we should put in him the bedroom?
5) We live on the Tardis, so there's plenty of room for at least 50 more.
6)Oh, they follow the TV people....you know about the TV people?
7) We send them out to work daily (Mommy says she's going to make CK go out and Mouse.)
8) Right next to my heart.
LOL that is funny....Moms don't put us anywhere, we go where ever we want....she has no say in it and I am sure that is the same at your house....if you have one and many cats do and go where ever they want in the house...how can Moms stop us!
What a funny story! Also laughing at all the great comments.
Especially love Natalie's "retorts."
Right next to my heart ~made mom instantly misty!
Some humans don't know what they are missing.
