Cat’s Aren’t…

Hello Internet! I know that it’s been forever. I’m trying to figure out my school/life balance, and blogging has kind of fallen by the wayside… for now… I’m determined to get back into the swing of things here soon. But for now, other things are taking priority.

Today I wanted to share a list with you. This is a list of things you may hear somebody in our apartment tell the cats. I say at least one of these things Every. Single. Day. It turns out when you are raising two kittens, you are constantly monitoring where they are (never where they belong) and telling them what are not. So, for instance, when Winston climbs onto the coffee table (approximately 863 times a day), somebody ends up yelling “cats aren’t coffee!” and then we move him and five minutes later we have to tell him again.

Here is a by no means complete list of things our cats think they are, which in fact they are not.

Cats aren’t…

  • Coffee
  • Mixed drinks
  • Craft supplies
  • Dirty dishes
  • Work essentials
  • Jewelry
  • Car keys
  • Nighttime essentials
  • Electrical cords
  • Perishable items
  • Nonperishable items
  • Garbage (yes… yes they are)
  • Toiletries
  • Window dressings
  • Christmas decorations
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Smart (at least mine aren’t)

Do any of these sound familiar Internet? If so, I’d be willing to wager you’ve owned a cat or two in your day.

I’ll leave you with a few pictures of the cats where they belong:

    Our list also includes “you are not clean laundry” and “you are not recycling”. Our “not coffee” orange cat loves to be on the table, which is a big nope, but he thinks he is super sneaky and he’ll “hide” in boxes or baskets on the table. 20lbs of cat can not be contained by a shoe box, no matter how hard he tries 🙂
