To be posted VERY LOW on the refrigerator door - nose height.

Dear Dogs and Cats,

The dishes with the paw print are yours and contain your food. The other  dishes are mine and contain my food. Please note,  placing a paw print in  the middle of my plate and food does not stake a claim for it becoming  your food and dish, nor do I find that
aesthetically pleasing in the slightest.

The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack. Beating me to the bottom is not the object. Tripping me doesn't help because I fall faster than you can run.

I cannot buy anything bigger than a king sized bed. I am very sorry about  this. Do not think I will continue sleeping on the couch to ensure your comfort. Dogs and cats can actually curl up in a ball when they sleep. It  is not necessary to sleep perpendicular to each other stretched out to the fullest extent possible. I also know that sticking tails straight out and having tongues hanging out the other end to maximize space is nothing but sarcasm.

For the last time, there is not a secret exit from the bathroom. If by some miracle I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it is not  necessary to claw, whine, meow, try to turn the knob or get your paw under the edge and try to pull the door open. I must
exit through the same door I entered. Also, I have been using the bathroom for years --canine or feline attendance is not required

The proper order is kiss me, then go smell the other dog or cat's butt. I  cannot stress this enough!

To pacify you, my dear pets, I have posted the following message on our  front door:

To All Non-Pet Owners Who Visit & Like to Complain About Our Pets:
      1. They live here. You don't.
      2. If you don't want their hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture.
         (That's why  they call it "fur"niture.)
      3. I like my pets a lot better than I like most people.
      4. To you, it's an animal. To me, he/she is an adopted son/daughter who is
          short, hairy, walks on all fours and doesn't speak clearly.

Remember: Dogs and cats are better than kids  because they:
       1. Eat less
       2. Don't ask for money all the time
       3. Are easier to train
       4. Normally come when called
       5. Never ask to drive the car
       6. Don't hang out with drug-using friends
       7. Don't smoke or drink
       8. Don't have to buy the latest fashions
       9. Don't want to wear your clothes
     10 . Don't need a gazillion dollars for college,
                           and...
     11. If they get pregnant, you can sell their children.

Hi Shelly

It's so ironic that you posted this recently. I haven't been on IMOM for a very long time, and when I logged on today, I saw your message about this post that I posted in 2007!! :unsure:

I've copied and pasted it and sent it to your e-mail.

Have a very Merry and Blessed Christmas

Jo (Mike's Mom) and Gidget
