That time again! In this episode, Meowm and I shall discuss COMMUNICATION and the Question of the Week:
How does your cat best communicate with you?
*Those expressive eyes!
*Ears and tail!
*My cat is very vocal.
*Other (leave a comment
Coop Sez: It's the eyes, isn't it???
Meowm Sez: Well, partly...but it's a little more than that...
Coop Sez: What do you mean?
Meowm Sez: Well, for instance...this MORNING...on Mommy's VACATION DAY...you jumped on the bed with Ro -- three times -- and what did you do?
Coop Sez: Ohhhh, yeah...the headbonks! I just wanted you to toss her to me...a few hundred times...
Meowm Sez: Well, it's a little difficult to toss Ro when Meowmmy is SLEEPING, Coop.
Coop Sez: But you had no business sleeping when I wanted to play! And doncha love it when I dump a slobbery, chewed up Ro on your face at seven in the morning?
Meowm Sez: Oh YEAH...Love it. Little boys...Little Boys...
Coop Sez: Getting back...it's my soulful gaze...I know it is...
Meowm Sez: That's your guilt plea.
Coop Sez: Well, you know, you spent a lot of money on these sparkling emerald winkers...I might as well USE them to my advantage, right?
Meowm Sez: Coopie, you use EVERYTHING to your advantage. Except your voice. And that's what REALLY gets Meowm.
Coop Sez: Because I churp?
Meowm Sez: And because you use that only in the most dire situations -- like going to the vet and getting your nails trimmed...or getting your Advantage treatment. Kinda makes me cry...
Coop Sez: GOOD -- I've played my cards correctly. See all of the wonderful things I've learned from Loki?
Meowm Sez: I see, I see...
Coop Sez: Loki also told me to...(*covers mouth with paw*) Moerowroroweowsahrowrah...but I'll save that one for LATER when I really need it!
Meowm Sez: I have no doubt that you will! But you do have one mode of communication that's not even mentioned there...those sweet little sandpapery kisses...
Coop Sez: Oh, the sweet little licks that provoke you to say, "My Grandmother the germaphobe is rolling in her grave, screaming, 'Don't let that herpes cat lick you!'"
Meowm Sez: Now, Coopie!
Coop Sez: You do say that...
Meowm Sez: Because she was a crazy germaphobe and...nevermind. Moving on.
Coop Sez: Ears and tail...
Meowm Sez: You really only have two modes of ears and tail communication -- that would be the "Happy/Content" mode and the "Hunter" mode. You're just not a moody kitty.
Coop Sez: No, I'm really not. I've never even HISSED! But did you have to go and tell Dr. B that I'm the happiest cat you've ever seen? Totally blew my Ferocious Beast cover! And they said I meow like a girl!!!! Now they're really going to think I'm a wuss at the vet!
Meowm Sez: Coopie, wouldn't you rather be the one kitty that all vets remember as sitting patiently while your contact lens is being changed...or be forgotten amongst all of the others who claw and fight?
Coop Sez: Awww, that was all cool when I was a baby kitten with a skinny tail. But now, I'm twelve poundages of BIG BOY, and I'm not even done growing yet! Now I want to be a ManCat. See my ManCat tail? Hmmm...maybe I should learn to thump it.
Meowm Sez: Well, no matter how much bigger you get...or how much you weigh...or how much your tail fills in...you'll always be my precious baby boy...
Coop Sez: Aw, Meowm! My friends read this! I don't want to be putting that out there! And is now the appropriate time for me to ask if I can start dating?
Meowm Sez: Coopurr Anderson Hays Vanderbilt...we'll discuss that offline.
Coop Sez: Yeah, yeah, yeah...can we play with Ro now? I'm bored.
Meowm Sez: Gooooo FETCH!
Have a PAWESOME weekend, everyfur!

but i really love your dialogues about question of the week!
have a purrfect weekend yourself!
I like to communicate vocally to my humans, Coopurr! They respond well to loud, firm meows. What's this "meowing like a girl"? I meow like myself, the princess, the ruler of the home, always!
Mamma putty..we Blues know how to knead that Mamma putty..good one my young Blue..They love the belly too. Get some belly time going.
6 more pounds and you will be my size.
I love your dialogues!
Have a fun weekend!
MOL, Loki!!!!! Meowm says I'm going through a "chubby" phase again. She also said my tail FINALLY filled out. (I had the longest, skinniest kitten tail in the whole shelter!)
So, maybe those six pounds are a reality...!!!!
Purrs, everyfur, and thank you all so much for reading my ramblings.
