Part 3: 10 Things I’ve learned about bringing outdoor cats indoors

Ok, this is the last of the "cats" babbling for awhile... Please humor me again and keep reading.

1. There is sound #103 that escapes when you trim their long nails.

2. While you sleep, cats will use your body as a ladder and stick their noses by your nose and lips to see if you are still alive.
If you are, they will rub their faces on your cheek, take a paw and plant it on your face and demand petting.

3. While you are asleep, cats will walk on your pillow and imagine that your hair is a fuzzy toy meant to be pulled- the biting and claws on your scalp will wake you.

4. Never mess with a cat that gives you the evil eye.

5. Cats like the smell of Burt’s Bees beeswax and banana hand crème. They will lick it while you are asleep.

6. A plastic grocery bag will become a musical toy in the middle of the night.

7. If there is a space under the door, a paw will emerge to taunt the dogs that are guarding.

8. Cats know when dogs are guarding; they will “meow” just for spite.

9. Luggage makes a great scratching post- so do leather chairs and ottomans.

and lastly,

10. Never put a drinking glass on the nightstand that a cat’s face can fit into.

I try to find humor in everyday life, and I hope you do to. I'd love to hear from you at or on Facebook.

Have a great day. Click on the response box below..... please.


  1. Okay Helen....enough with the cat stories.....

  2. Thanks for the comment. Yahoo! My comment box is working again. I'd really love to hear from you all and like the band leader wanting dancing on the floor, I'll even take suggestions. Let's see, I've got colonoscopies, dirty diapers, husbands and a few more... keep'em coming.
