This post is especially for our cat lovers, those of us who serve as full-time domestic helpers to our felines. (We’ll try to think up something for the rest of our animal lovers in a future post.)
For you, I have two quick questions:
A. Move the cat.
B. Find something else to do.
A. Wake up the cat and move her off the box.
B. Work on something else.
If you answered “B” to both questions, you’re a true ailurophile, like me, whether you know it or not.
Webster’s Dictionary defines it as a “cat fancier, a lover of cats.” Some of us “fancy” a little more than others. (See a few photos of our house.)
So we’re going to have a contest! Actually it’ll be a random drawing, but only for people who share their homes with these furry creatures, and you need to comment below. (US readers, only, sorry.)
How have you changed your house or behavior to accommodate your cat?
Tell us below about how you’ve changed something to make your cat’s life easier, even though it might make yours a little less easy. Even upload a photo if you like!
To be eligible, your response must be posted below, not in a return email please.
Two lucky people who respond will receive cat socks! Well not really socks for your cat’s little paws, but socks for you!
You’ll get to choose from among these three styles by Laurel Burch: You have until October 22nd to comment. (Erica’s staff people are not eligible to win. It isn’t a requirement to work at Erica’s, but a large number live with cats! We’d love to have you comment, you just can’t win. Sorry.)
I’ll announce the winners in this space, in two weeks, in my October 25th post,
OK. May the best cat servant win!
And if you live in the Michiana area, please adopt a cat (or another cat) from our Humane Society. No adoption fee, and you can take one (or more) home the same day. They’re spayed or neutered and have their shots! Saturday October 17th from 12:00 noon to 5:30pm. If you can find space in your heart, be there. They have over 300 cats needing furever homes!
