Cat Tales ~ REALLY?

*** This is a reprint of a Guest post Gomez wrote for my other blog, Embracing the Elements. Gomez always has something to say... ***

Mommy has been talking to Us Kitties about the changes that will happen next year. She said Wes are going to move back to the country (well, actually she said to the mountains but that's like the country in my book!) but we weren't going to be living in a conventional house. She said that Wes going to lives in something called a TIPI. Then Mommy showed Mes this picture.

Mommy said that the tipi Wes would be living in would be much, much larger than this. Mes wondering why Me can't have Mes own Tipi....
She said that there would be a wood stove in  the winter to curl up next to. And sunny rocks to bask on in the summer sun. And Catnip growing in the Aspen Grove. 
Sounded like Heaven to Me until Mommy said that We would have a job to do. REALLY?
Me? A job? Me thought Mes job was to curl up next to the wood stove and soak up the heat or to bask in the sun or to monitor the growth of the Catnip.
Mommy said that We Kitties would have to catch the Vermin that would sneak into the Tipi. REALLY?
Me catch bugs and mice? REALLY? 
Does Mommy not realize that Me cannot catch "Vermin"? That is a project for the younger Kitties. Mes job is to SUPERVISE the catching of the Vermin
Me thinks Me needs to have a talk with Mommy!

Gomez, you are going to love the tipi life. You will get lots of exercise which will be fun, but also will keep you healthy and looking young. You don't have to learn to catch vermin. It will come naturally to you because this skill has been passed down through generations of cats just like you. Soon, you will be a master at vermin catching and other outdoor skills (they are skills, not chores). Maybe you'll even be famous and your picture will be in the newspaper!!!

Poor Gomez, I sympathize. Life is unfair.

I've heard, from my kitty friends, that vermin is tasty and yummy...

Catching bugs is fun! At least my cat thinks so.
