Rules to live by for up-and-coming felines:
If you have to throw up, get into a chair quickly. If you cannot manage this in time, get to an oriental rug. Shag is good.
If you can arrange to have cat food on your breath, so much the better.
For sitting on laps or rubbing against trouser legs, select colors which contrast with your own.
Always accompany guests to the bathroom. It is not necessary to do anything. Just sit and stare.
For guests who say, "I love kitties",be ready with aloof distain, claws applied to stockings or a quick nip to the ankles.
Do not allow closed doors in any room. To get one open, stand on hind legs and hammer with forepaws. Once the door is open for you, it is not necessary to use it. You can change your mind. When you have ordered an outside door opened, stand half in and half out and think about several things. This is particularly important during very cold weather or mosquito season.
If one person in busy and the other is idle, sit with the busy one. For book readers, get in close under the chin, unless you can lie across the book itself.
For ladies knitting, curl quietly into lap and pretend to doze. Then reach out and slap knitting needles sharply. This is what she calls a dropped stich. She will try to distract you. Ignore it.
For people doing homework, sit on the paper being worked on. After being removed for the second time, push anything movable off the table - pens, pencils, stamps - one at a time.
Get enough sleep during the daytime so that you are fresh for playing at night between 2 and 4 am

Mom says I look alot like him. Almost enough to be brothers.
I think she is blind. I am a black and grey tiger with a sand colored belly, and Tigger was a black and grey tiger cat with a
grey belly. Mom says he was very soft and would go catatonic
in your arms if you patted under his chin. I wouldn't care.
Mom also says I walk around with my tail in a ? shape because it
explains my personality exactly... I think it is just really cool
